Sooner rather than later it seems seems to be the idea dear. I’ve already mentioned I’d like to get back into reading comics on a regular but small scale basis mostly from the excitement of a new Dr Strange series (I have dusty comics from his last major series here. And I’ve already committed to reading X-Men Schism when I reviewed issue one earlier today. It just seems to be a good time to be getting back into comics. Especially with DC giving a good jumping on point for new and old readers alike with 52 #1′s.
So I got to thinking what might I add to my digital pull list? I’m limiting myself to five and on first glance I’d go for?
The Flash #1
Written by FRANCIS MANAPUL and BRIAN BUCCELLATO
Art and cover by FRANCIS MANAPUL
The Fastest Man Alive returns to his own monthly series from the writer/artist team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato! The Flash knows he can’t be everywhere at once, but what happens he faces an all-new villain who really can! As if that’s not bad enough, this villain is a close friend!
Wonder Woman #1
Written by BRIAN AZZARELLO
Art and cover by CLIFF CHIANG
The Gods walk among us. To them, our lives are playthings. Only one woman could dare to protect humanity from the wrath of the strange and powerful forces. But is she one of us – or one of them?
Green Lantern: New Guardians #1
Written by TONY BEDARD
Art and cover by TYLER KIRKHAM and BATT
Kyle Rayner has assembled the most powerful team in all the universe, selected from the full spectrum of corps. But can he even keep this volatile group together?
Justice League Dark #1
Written by PETER MILLIGAN
Art by MIKEL JANIN
The witch known as The Enchantress has gone mad, unleashing forces that not even the combined powers of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg can stop. And if those heroes can’t handle the job, who will stand against the mystical madness?
Shade the Changing Man, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, Zatanna and John Constantine may be our only hope – but how can we put our trust in beings whose very presence makes ordinary people break out in a cold sweat?
Teen Titans #1
Written by SCOTT LOBDELL
Art and cover by BRETT BOOTH and NORM RAPMUND
Tim Drake, Batman’s former sidekick, is back in action when an international organization seeks to capture, kill or co-opt super-powered teenagers.
As Red Robin, he’s going to have to team up with the mysterious and belligerent powerhouse thief known as Wonder Girl and the hyperactive speedster calling himself Kid Flash to stand any chance at all against a living, breathing weapon with roots in another world!
They – along with a few other tortured teen heroes – will be the Teen Titans in this new series from writer Scott Lobdell (WILDC.A.T.S, Uncanny X-Men) and artist Brett Booth (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA)!
I’ve mostly avoided Batman and Superman you notice. Not on purpose but they just seem too big to be as interesting but in reality what I’ll probably end up doing is waiting the 4 weeks for the price to drop and pick up a selection and then choose 5.
What do you think. Good time to get back into comics?
