If you like Andrea Sorrentino's work, then you should check out Green Arrow #17. Jeff Lemire is in the new writer and Sorrentino the new artist. It's pretty good and the pencils and page organization is fantastic.


That all sounds awesome cept I couldn't care less about Green Arrow. Really no interest in the character.

And so did I. Until I read this issue. My only previous knowledge of the character was Diggle and Jock's Year One series several years ago.

I just finished Y: The Last Man and I think it's probably my second or third favorite series ever. I literally broke into tears while reading one of the pages of the last issue. I could see why some people are really turned off by the ending, but I think it actually fit perfectly.

So, reading through my Walking Dead Compendium and just finished the first one (issues 1-48). Completely soured me to the tv show. I don't think there's any way to even come close to match expectations with the book now considering how the prison story ended in the comic. Holy shit.


Also, as a news story, Geoff Johns is ending his long run on Green Lantern at issue 20 to focus on Justice League (and I'm sure other projects). I guess it would be asking too much to have Grant Morrison on the book now, which has been a dream of mine for a while now...

I Think Grant Morrison has already done all that he wants to with the Justice League considering his run on JLA in the 90's. Meaning I have no idea how he can top that.

Geoff Johns departure on Green Lantern has long been overdue. I loved it leading up until Blackest Night and a little afterwards, but then it just grew stale and boring.

It got better after they introduced Baz, though. He's awesome.

Sorry, should have clarified. I want Morrison on Green Lantern. Instead I think it might be Keith Giffen or Abnett and Lanning due to their cosmic work from Marvel.

I cant say im disappointed with Johns leaving. Liked everything through Sinestro Corps War, then Hal played dressup up through Blackest Night, War of the Green Lanterns was horrid IMO, then Sinestro and Baz took the spotlight. Havent been thrilled for a while.

So I just read Batman 17 and while it was still a great issue, it didn't have that jaw-dropping revelation that I was kind of, sort of expecting. Still a fun read and another great arc.

I Would love the hell out of Abnett and Lanning writing Green Lantern. All of their Marvel sci-fi stuff they've done has been nothing less then amazing.

As for Johns, I kinda feel he's been stretched way past thin after Blackest Night. With him basically overseeing the whole DC universe and having a hand in writing nearly every character, I think he should focus on one or two books a month. Green Lantern itself has been kinda boring to me and the threat of the Third Army seems so miniscule to me both in design and execution. So I gladly welcome a new writer.

Though on a side note, as much as I enjoy Johns' work I still hate the fact that he brought back Barry Allen and now Wally West is no where to be seen. Barry is such a goddamn boring character. You'd think with his character being endowed with memories of both the old DC universe and the new 52 that he'd be interesting, but nope. Still boring as hell and not touched up upon at all.

Anyone read Mega Man? I just read issue #20 "Rock of Ages". Even if you're not collecting the series I'd recomend this single issue for any Mega Man fan. It foreshadows some big up coming events by having Mega Man jump in the future. Really fun read.

Morrison was technically the one who brought Barry back, Johns wrote the series.

Ugh, I don't feel any better about either of those two after reading that.

And Batman #17, was a rather safe ending for that arc. I Was kinda expecting something more over the top, but still enjoyed it none the less it just didn't reach the levels that Court of Owls had in story telling. Eitherway I'm still digging Snyder's Batman.

So, this week's comics were really good.

Star Wars #2, Fantastic Four #4 and Katana #1 were pretty good. However, Batman #17 was amazing. The single best issue of any comic I have ever read. It delivered on all aspects (writing, pencils, colors, etc) and did exactly what it set out to do from day 1. As much as I love Brian Wood and Jonathan Hickman's writing, Scott Snyder is by far the best scribe in the business. I can't wait for The Wake, more Batman, his Superman book with Jim Lee and the return of American Vampire.

Haven't read Batman #17 yet but issue #16 was amazing. Creeped me out considering I was reading at 2AM. Honest to god I dreamed about the creepy faceless Joker trying to get me that night.

@GhostShark: I've always been a big FF fan so it pains me to say this comic isn't a fun read. I'll hang in for a couple more issues. I've only read up to #2 so far so prove me wrong.

Going to my local comic store tomorrow. My wife owes me a Valentines day gift....

My only problem with Fraction's Fantastic Four is that pretty much everyone else plays second fiddle to the tension between Reed and Sue. The positive there is that the dialogue and action between the two is fantastic.

Does anyone know if Scott Snyder charges for autographs? He's going to be at Wizard World Comic-Con in Chicago this year, along with Greg Capullo, and I'd like to get my Death of the Family arc signed.

I'm no expert in the matter, but I would think he probably wouldn't charge. Is this common practice for people to charge for autographs? I've only seen the guest stars who are brought in by one of those 3rd party services charge before or the like c-rate stars at conventions looking specifically to sell some autographs i.e. Virgil from the WWF.

I only have gotten a handful of autographs over the years though. Kirkman signed a few things for me, Mark Waid, and Jhonnen Vasquez are the most recent.

im going to say no but im thinking its going to be a little difficult because he probaly will be all over the place, you should find out different autograph times for him, he might be at different booths. Greg will be different because i think most likely he will have a table at artist alley ( not sure). Just do your homework ahead of time of the autographs you want they usually post it on the site or you can go to the creators page

Yeah, that's what I figured. Greg was in the artist alley last year, but I happened to miss him every time he was available. I can't imagine Scott would charge, but I just want to know for sure. Most of the people that charge are celebrities/wrestlers and what not.

yeah the only thing i see is you probably will be waiting on line for a while, i know what you mean about greg, last year at nycc, when i went to see if fiona staples was at her table she wasnt there so i stop going and just waited when she signed at the image booth. Same thing with justin jordan but never got his :(

I missed him too. I need to remember to bring some Spawn books for him to sign.

Wagner and Perez are really nice and do not charge.

Good luck getting PP 9 now. That beast was sold out weeks before it released. Unless youre willing to pay 30-50 for it on ebay. All the stores in my area were cleaned out Wednesday upon opening. It is going to 2nd print though, so you'll only have to wait a few more weeks.
