In Summary

This has been a really great month on the reading front. I have enjoyed everything I have read with the exception of one (I'll get to that in a moment). The Warlord of Mars and Dejah Thoris are going from strength to strength, the new Star Trek comic series is awesome (I'll be reviewing that one soon), the new DC line is, hmmmmm? Interesting, is that the word? And I have been loving my audio books so much I've now gone and signed up for an Audible account and am enjoying all the groovy books I can download.

The down shot this month has to be DCs Action Comics, now dropped from my pull list. What can I say? I guess the answer is, 'lots'. I could rant on all day about it, but I'm going to spare you waffle and just simply say, 'It's just not my cup-of-tea'. The Superman that is portrayed in this comic, even when he is badly illustrated, is just not my Superman.

This Months Highlight

In a total contrast to DCs Action Comics, DCs Detective Comics is flippin' amazing! This comic has jumped right to the top of my reading pile each month. This is Batman! And he is written and illustrated brilliantly.   

The new Detective Comics is a glowing example of how great the DC New 52 not-re-boot could have been. Yes the first issue plops you down a few years into Bruce Wayne's life as Batman thus missing the 'origin story', but who cares? Who doesn't know the origin story to Batman? If you are a fan of the character, the films, the TV shows or even the new video games and have thought about reading a Batman comic and don't know which one to read, Detective Comics is for you.
