Last week was a big week for comics! We had more Night of the Owls books come out as well as Free Comic Book Day on Saturday. Our family attended FCBD at The Realm Comics and Games (our local shop) and we made out like BANDITS! Each of the kids got a free comic and we dug through the older comic boxes (at a quarter a book) and bought $12.50 in back issues. My daughter (who is four) got a bunch of Wonder Woman books from the 80's through 2008 and a full set of the Wonder Girl series. She was beyond excited. I got a ton of Flash comics- I even found some that I hadn't read! I also crossed 4 issues of Robin and 2 issues of Civil War: Runaways & Young Avengers off my Wish List. Big scores all around! Our pull list this week included: Batwing, Detective Comics, Green Arrow, Teen Titans Annual and the first 2 issues of Green Lantern: The Animated Series for my son. Unfortunately, we did not get our copy of Batwing because it sold out! But it is on order so we should have it within 2 weeks. I can not wait to see what Marcus To has done with Batwing, his art is amazing.
gorgonops. It looks like it stepped out of a scientific journal, it was lovely. Overall, this annual was really pretty good. Teen Titans Annual #1 earns 4 Flashes for great art and an interesting story.
Next week we'll have Batgirl #9, Batman #9, Batman & Robin #9 and Superboy #9. 3 out of 4 of these titles will include more from the Night of the Owls. I have seen the preview pages for Batman & Robin and this book is going to be absolutely stellar. I can't wait. I also saw Brett Booth's pencils for Teen Titans #10 that show Bart racing some dinosaurs and his face is just PURE BART ALLEN- so full of joy. I can't WAIT!
