Weekly Comics Discussion – October 12, 2011

The complete list of titles is available here. New printings of all New 52 first issues are available to go along with the second issues.

Dark Horse Comics

  • BTVS SEASON 9 FREEFALL #2
  • DOLLHOUSE EPITAPHS #4 (OF 5)
  • STAR WARS INVASION REVELATIONS #4 (OF 5)
  • STAR WARS OLD REPUBLIC #5 (OF 5) LOST SUNS

DC Comics

  • BATGIRL #2 – Highly recommended.
  • BATMAN AND ROBIN #2
  • BATWOMAN #2 – Amazing art.
  • DEATHSTROKE #2 – Surprisingly enjoyable. This is not a series about the good guy.
  • DEMON KNIGHTS #2
  • FRANKENSTEIN AGENT OF SHADE #2
  • GREEN LANTERN #2 – Another enjoyable series, though I’m biased by my love of the concept. This is one of three titles I’ll probably never drop, regardless of quality of the output.
  • GRIFTER #2
  • LEGION LOST #2
  • MISTER TERRIFIC #2 – Very enjoyable series. Think of Doctor Who in a world of superheroes, and you’re on the right track. Also home to one of DC’s strongest female characters at the moment.
  • RESURRECTION MAN #2 – I’m sticking with this one based on the strength of the DnA writing team and the fact that they seem to be tackling the religious “elephant in the room” head on.
  • SUICIDE SQUAD #2 – Another worthwhile break from the ordinary.
  • SUPERBOY #2 – Enjoyable, but didn’t make the cut. I’ll catch up later if I hear good things.

IDW Comics

  • GHOSTBUSTERS ONGOING #2
  • INFESTATION OUTBREAK #4 (OF 4)
  • TRANSFORMERS CLASSICS UK TP VOL 01

Image Comics

  • MORNING GLORIES #13 – I’ve heard great things about this series. I read the first issue free on ComiXology, and then caught up during last week’s sale, but haven’t read 2-12 yet.
  • PILOT SEASON CITY OF REFUGE #1
  • SUPER DINOSAUR #5
  • WALKING DEAD WEEKLY #41
