No. Fair would be Jackson Bostwick.

Pulls today:

Action
Detective

From the long box:

Batman #233 (Giant Issue: "Batman and Robin Face Danger Around the World!)

Action Comics: #441 (Cover has Superman sucker-punching The Flash.)

Action Comics: #457 (Cover with Superman tearing off the Clark Kent disguise behind a boy crying into his pillow, possibly popularized by 'Superdickery" for it's rapey-looking cover.)

Jim Lee's cover to the New 52 Free Comic Book Day issue...

Pandora in the back ground (since she'll be a focus of the issue) and Bruce is holding some kind of metallic skull.

I picture Christian Bale in his "gargling gravel" voice saying "Alas poor Yorick..."

Action Comics: This one I really liked and feels like maybe Action Comics is reaching a good groove for me. I don't much like how Morrison uses Jimmy as a complete dim-witt, but whatever. I really liked the action, look and tone as well as the art in this book.

Detective: It was mostly okay, I was half-asleep when I read this so I didn't give it a strong read and need to go over it again. What I did read of it was pretty good so, for the most part, I'm still hanging in there with Detective. (Though I'm still not a big fan of the new villains introduced.)

I think Morrison would disagree with you about the characterization of Jimmy. He's supposed to be "nerdy" and smart. I'd hardly call him a dim wit.

Animal Man #7 - the start of a new arc but it picks right up from issue #5(recall #6 was movie night with about 2 pages of our real story) so it didn't really feel like a new arc. Felt more like a filler issue...again. Some potential foreshadowing with his daughter. After the last issue Buddy gets some father and son time as they hunt for food and supplies. Manages to make his son look cool in front of some local girls. Overall another mediocore issue. I'm hanging in for the Swamp Thing crossover coming but may drop the book at issue #12

Swamp Thing #7 - Alec finally becomes Swamp Thing. The art is really good and has that surreal vibe to it that is often done with mixed results by some artists. This issue was really all about Alec making the choice to be Swamp Thing vs how it was an accident before. The sub-plot of the story is about Abigail Arcane and how she will not be the woman he met and had feelings for before. I imagine her metamorphosis will be touched on next issue.

Well, I mean "dim wit" more in how he behaves. I dunno, something about the way Morrison writes him here and did in All-Star just sort of turns me off. Maybe "nit-wit" is more accurate?

"We're the A-Team! Ghostbusters!"

Just... ugh.

But, anyway, overall I really liked the book.

Nit wit maybe a bit more accurate. I get what you're saying. I don't really have a problem since this is supposed to be a younger Jimmy as well. This book is really going to be interesting once it jumps to the present after next issue.


DC Execs talk New 52 sales and are excited for AVX...as I expected, because it will generate sales competition.

Artist shake ups on Detective and Batwoman...Tony Daniel is taking a break on Detective (I guess he is still writing? Sigh) Ed Benes comes aboard for four issues.

I don't particularly care for Tony Daniel OR Ed Benes art... I think I'll drop that book. Story has not been good anyway.

Wow did GREEN ARROW fill my bag of comics with a manure-like smell. It could not possibly have been this bad before. This one one of the worst comics I've read in a while.

Yeah Green Arrow is one of the disappointing books that I had expectations for.

I quit after issue two lol. It felt like it was going for the "Smallville" version of Green Arrow to me. Even hooked up Ollie with a Chole like side kick.
