"Injustice: Gods Among Us" is an interesting comic that ties in nicely with the game, so its a keeper. "Green Arrow" has amazing art and (good writing by Jeff Lemire) so it is safe and I'll always have a soft spot for John Constantine so his book remains on my pull-list even if it isn't the "real" John we grew to love during his long time on the Vertigo imprint. Speaking of Vertigo, it is sort-of DC so its worth mentioning I am going to keep reading "The Wake" and the new series "Trillium" because again, Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire make good comics--and seem to be behind most of the DC-related books I'm still reading.
|Sorry "Green Team" but you just don't entertain me enough.|
Weirdly, I'm keeping "Suicide Squad" for now, as I started it with the Ales Kot issues that were really good and hope when Matt Kindt takes over on issue #25 the interestingly weird tone of the comic continues. Oh, and I'll try the first issue of "Superman/Wonder Woman". Last of all for the DC books, I'm going to read the "Forever Evil" mini-series as long as it isn't bad and look into the tie-ins--e.g. I'm trying some of those villain one-shots and such.
Sex". Also, because I like Joe Casey's writing as much as I do, I think I'll keep up with "The Bounce" for at least a few more issues, as it is starting to make more sense than the illegible first issue. Catalyst Comix is written by Casey too, so it of course is a lock.
Other titles I want to keep up with for at least a bit by Image include the new Greg Rucka series "Lazarus", the lushly illustrated by Juan Jose Ryp series "Clone", and Jonathan Hickman's "East of West". Plus "Satellite Sam" is proving to be a dense, but intriguing read.
It would seem that I'm cutting a fair amount of DC (or have a lot "on notice") and very little of Image. That's worth discussing in my Part 4 overview of reflecting on what my, "cuts and keeps" mean. Before that however, look out for Part 3: The Other Publishers, which will be posted before long also.
