Grant Morrison doing Action Comics- Super excited about this. I bought All-Star Superman from Comixcology during their killer Superman sale a month or two back. Only got around to reading it a couple weeks ago. I don’t think I ever really got Grant Morrison before. I then ended up watching Talking to Gods, the documentary about him, and have hooked on him ever since. Really excited to see what he does with Superman on a monthly comic with no real backstory holding him back.
Storm Watch – I really don’t know much about this title, but it seems like maybe a cross between Planetary and The Boys? It also has Martian Manhunter, so you have to at least give it a shot.
Mister Terrific – Always love the idea of the Mister Terrific character, and for being the third smartest person in the DC Universe he seemed criminally underused at any given time. Now he has his own comic. Here’s hoping there’s some Fair Play in the new 52.
Magic, Magic, and More Magic – I don’t think I say it enough, but I think Vertigo might be one of the greatest imprints of all time. Some of my favorite comics have been released under Vertigo. So seeing some Vertigo characters get folded into DCU and then multiple books setup perfectly to get super trippy? Yes sir, can I have another. Not sure if it will happen, but I would love to see Justice League Dark go balls out old school Doctor Strange. Better yet, once Grant Morrison is done with Action Comics, task him with freaking out all the squares on JLD. I just want crazy and bizarre shit.
Anything Green… – Odds are, if you put “Green” in the title of a DC comic and I will buy it. I will say one thing though, I hope that they work Alan Scott into the Green Lantern Corp how. I hate that it seems most of the JSA characters are going away, so if they’re not going to have a straight up Golden Era Green Lantern, at least bring him into the modern era.
So there’s just a little bit of nonsense about the relaunch. I didn’t feel like writing anything formal for Guerrilla Geek, but still wanted to share my opinions. Also, in case you are wondering, here is my current pull list as I have planned;
(Sorry, these are organized by release date)
DC Universe Presents
Green Lantern Corps
All Star Western
Justice League Dark
