This Week's Listless List

After last week's cavalcade of new comics, this week's looking somewhat sparser (as well as it being another late delivery, due to the bank holiday; the new comics are in tomorrow). There's only one comic I'll definitely be getting, which is this:













Batman and Robin
#12, with a luverly high-kicking cover courtesy of Frank Quitely. I might also try this:













Brightest Day
#1, which is DC's new fortnightly year-long series about the heroes who were resurrected at the end of Blackest Night. Which I didn't read. Which begs the question, why would I wish to read a series that follows up a series I didn't read, and whose issue #0 I thought was, by and large, cack? Well, fuck knows. But it's out every two weeks, and what I love about mainstream comics is their serialized nature, and... and... No, let's stick with 'fuck knows'.

And I might give this a go too:













It's got Mike Allred of Madman fame on art, and it'll be less than a quid (DC/Vertigo tend to launch new series these days with cheapo $1 issue #1s). Worth a look, eh?

Oh, and I managed to nab issues 2 and 3 of Greg Rucka's crime comic Stumptown on eBay, so I'll be blogging about those (and issue #1) once I've read 'em, as the series fits into the general crime fiction 'bent' of this blog, so there might be an interested reader or, er, one. Brillo.
