Addemdum to yesterday’s post: I forgot some:

Green Arrow grab bag – pre52 and nu52. [Rob]

Demon Knights – entire nu52 run. if Batwoman is one of the best nu52 titles, this one, created by Paul Cornell, is another one. A sword and sorcery team book, featuring Vandal Savage (as played by BRIAN BLESSED), Etrigan the Demon, Madam Xanadu,  and a host of new characters, including the Horsewoman, Shining Knight (reinvented as a trans man) and Al Jabr. I highly recommend this series!


Marvel Time!

(If you were waiting for my Fraction/DeConnick stuff: sorry that’s going somewhere already.)

Daredevil – volume 3. Deceptively light tone from Waid, seems brash and comicy and then turns it on its head with SURPRISE silver age villains are actually REALLY CREEPY, on top of stress from Matt’s Real Life. Whether the character concept of Daredevil appeals to you or not, the book is constantly well written.

Daredevil End of Days  – darker, AU story by Bendis set after Matt’s death, providing a gripping coda to Bendis’ great run on the title.

Punisher – Greg Rucka’s superb run, followed by Punisher: War Zone. An amazing story about a woman whose wedding was destroyed by a mass shooting, arming up and going after revenge. If you like angry women with vendettas, you will love Rachel Alves. Oh, and Frank Castle is in it too.

Fearless Defenders -Misty Knight, Valkyrie, Dani Moonstar and Hippolyta team up to fight mythological bad guys. Marvel’s answer to Birds of Prey is amazing, you guys! This has only just started, so it’s not a huge package. [All going to Kat]

Young Avengers – most (not all, sorry) of Avengers: The Children’s Crusade, along with the new Young Avengers title, which is a fun teen team book with a couple of awesome new characters (Miss America FTW)

Also two issues of Jan ven Meter’s Black Cat mini, but these are #3 and 4 of 4, so I understand if you’re not interested.

Kat, your box of comics is going to be ridiculously heavy, FYI <3

Sorry! I've bought myself maybe three TPBs (and by "bought myself" I mean "gotten someone else to buy me") in the past year and a half, so this is like Christmas. No buying comics until I have a job, so sad.

Haha since I got a Nook comics are the only non-digital books I'm allowed to buy! Comics and education resources/materials.
