A little overview first, I buy all of my main line comics from The Realm Comics and Games, a LOCAL independently run store. The guys that run the store are super sweet, helpful and in no way too cool to help a newbie like me. I adore them. For back issues, I order from My Comic Shop. I use Comixology to make sure I have a tight pull list and I don't get behind on my comics. You can also buy digital comics there. I order my kids' comics subscriptions: Batman Brave and the Bold, Tiny Titans and Young Justice direct from DC. I also use the software Comic Collector to keep track of the books I have and the ones I need. I am currently only reading DC Comics because I don't really like Marvel and their work. The series' that I'm reading are: Batman, Batman & Robin, Nightwing, The Flash, Green Arrow, Teen Titans, Superboy, Red Hood and the Outlaws and The Justice League. All of these comics are rated T for Teens.
As for this week's trip to the comic book store, I bought:
|My Comic purchases for Jan. 4|
- Red Hood and the Outlaws # 2 and #3 - because I just HAVE to read the series that has Jason Todd & Roy Harper in it. I could live without Starfire and her lack of clothes but that's life I guess.
- Batman #2, #3 and #4 - this series I have to have because of the cross over between this book, Nightwing and Teen Titans. We see a fair amount of mask-less Dick Grayson and Tim Drake. SCORE! And it's got tons of classic Batman detective work.
- The new Green Arrow #5 - I love Green Arrow even though I miss his Van Dyke. I hope the facial hair comes back but Ollie never disappoints action-wise or beliefs-wise. Love some Ollie Queen.
- I did NOT get my Teen Titans from last week. :( it's still on order. And I REALLY want to read it too.
