New Comics Reader - Wrapping up New 52

(I'm moving posts from my old blog host over here. This one originally posted October 1st, 2011) Wow, I can’t believe how many comics I’ve read over the month of September! When I sit down and wonder why I haven’t gotten as many novels read this month (I’m looking at you, Goodreads profile that haunts me), I need to come back to these posts as a reminder. Aquaman  – a surprise hit. I’m not tossing this one back! Amazing art, but what really got me was the combination of tongue in cheek humor and the emotional connection I made with him. He’s a real, strong superhero, but I also honestly care about him. That’s a tough balance. Having no previous exposure to him other than the jokes made at his expense on Big Bang Theory, I was impressed. Justice League Dark  – Beautiful and dark. Keeper. The first page sold me. That has happened with several of my “keepers”. I’m intrigued by the characters, and I’m definitely keeping this on the top of my list. Spider-man  #2
