Ok. I'm glad to know I'll be able to get myself some good WW stories.

Ok, I read all of Batman: Year One, earlier this evening and I loved it. I can definitely see why it is considered such a classic.

Is the Bruce Wayne: Murder/Fugitive arc any good? It's the second complete arc Comixology has after Year One.

YES.

I have no idea where my copy is. That or Man of Steel, actually.

JD, maybe you know, since you've been reading more recent comics than I have, and I can guarantee Admiral Young knows, because he reads every comic, is the New Krypton stuff a few years back any good? I understand it got a mixed reception, but it sort of seems up my alley.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

Bruce Wayne: Murderer/Bruce Wayne: Fugitive are two of my favorite Bat-event stories. It also has one of my favorite images of Bruce ever...him growling inside of a jail cell while the Bat-Signal is outside the window unable to answer the call.

Murderer / Fugitive was pretty good... I'm reading "No Man's Land" for the first time right now that's really good, I love how it completely changes the rules of the game.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

You should check out Greg Ruka's novelization of "No Man's Land" after you read the trades.It's excellent.

@Myasischav I didn't see your mention of me. New Krypton is pretty solid all the way the four volumes. I enjoyed it. You pretty much need to read the four volumes then it goes into Superman: Last Stand of New Krypton and is concluded in War of the Supermen.

I'm in the process of reading it right now. So far, I've been enjoying it. The story is quite brisk, which was a but of a (pleasant) surprise to me. However, there is a conspiracy subplot to it which I thought I was going to enjoy, but it kinda drags as much of it is pure exposition.

Oops, sorry about the triple post, it was late and I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing.

I actually read the No Man's Land novelization when it came out ten years ago, and I'm only just now getting my hands on the actual comic books. The novelization is definitely more reality-based and gritty, but I'm enjoying seeing the full expanded story with all the side bits.

I think I saw on Amazon that next year it's getting a new release.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

I finished Legends in Exile earlier today, and I loved it just as much, if not maybe a little more, than BYO.
Was the "pompous" and "holier-than-thou" lion in the flashback in #4 supposed to be Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia?

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

I took advantage of the Superman 101 Sale, and picked the issues that make up the Last Son arc and three issues into it I am really enjoying it. Is it considered a good arc? I thought it was one I remembered being talking about positively here. Do the events in it play any kind of a role in stories after it?

Generally, it is well liked. And, yes. The events/characters in Last Son have some payoff in New Krypton.
