A fairly big week for me.  I'm undecided as to whether to purchase the Joker Harley Criminal Sanity series, though I have been enjoying the DC Black Label line.  Here are my picks:
  • BATMAN VS RAS AL GHUL #2 - The art in the book does exceed the writing, but it's Neal Adams.
  • CATWOMAN #16 - For my son, as I'm way behind on the title.
  • HARLEY QUINN & POISON IVY #2 - A fun book.  I love these weird team ups.  When will these two bump into Red Sonja and Vampirella?
  • JOKER HARLEY CRIMINAL SANITY #1 - This is one that I'm undecided on.
  • AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #31 - Carnage is not one of my favorite characters, but I'll power through the book
  • BACK ISSUE #116 -Superheroes vs Monsters - there will be something of interest here.

G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #267- Loving the Robert Atkins artwork starting last issue. 

Detective Comics #1013- Interested to see where the story with Mr. Freeze is going to go.

Event Leviathan #5- We're supposed to find out who Leviathan is. Like I've said before, something about this story is hitting the right buttons for me.

Superman #16- Not in love with the Lafuente artwork but we'll see how the story is.

Amazing Fantasy Facsimile #15-  Never going to own the original so this is the closest I'll get.

G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #267- Larry Hama just provides good quality entertainment month in moth out, and Robert Atkins is terrific. 

Detective Comics #1013 - More great work from Peter Tomasi and Doug Mahnke.

Getting to be months behind in my reading because I keep going to old stuff. About to be between old stuff dig-outs so I'm looking forward to catching up.

GI JOE A REAL AMERICAN HERO #267
USAGI YOJIMBO #5

BATMANS GRAVE #1 - near as I can tell, the high concept is "Warren Ellis writes a Batman comic", but I generally like Ellis and I've only bought one new Batman book in the last six years so what the heck

AMAZING FANTASY #15 FACSIMILE EDITION - so let's see... between Marvel Masterworks, Amazing Fantasy Omnibus, Marvel Milestones, Marvel Tales (twice), Amazing Spider-Man #275, Spider-Man: the Secret Story of Marvel's World Famous Wallcrawler, Famous Firsts and probably one or three others I'm blanking on, I have multiple copies of all stories within, but I found that the notion of having a full reprint that's a tad less obvious than the Marvel Milestones one appealed to me.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #31
INVADERS #10

POWERS OF X #6 (OF 6) - I know I won't be bothering with most of Dawn of X, but we'll see if morbid curiosity leads me to the X-Men series itself.

Also "Bryan Hitch draws a Batman comic." I'll probably give it a look for the team although I generally don't have much interest in Batman.

Small week otherwise:THE BEAUTY #30 - final issue of what was a generally enjoyable series.

BUFFY: HELLMOUTH #1: Seems a bit early in the relaunches for a six month crossover but here's to hoping!

No one listed Doctor DOOM #1 this week. I don't really buy comics anymore but a Doom/Kang story interests me. Did anyone read it?
