DC Pull List - Week of May 27th, 2015

I can't believe I forgot about the Indies!!  I even had the post half-started and I was going to finish it Saturday night but band practice ran long and then I was getting ready for the Anime Convention and then yesterday was said convention.  Ah, I'm such a failure!  I debated throwing the Indies up tonight and then doing DC tomorrow, but really there wasn't anything overly interesting going on in the Indie world.  I'm back on track now by throwing DC up and hopefully I can stay there.  All though, I'm supposed to be going to see Mad Max next Saturday....

Ok, ok, I'll put up the Indies first.  Geez, Rockatansky, don't need to point a sawed-off at me.  


All of this information is suggested. Sometimes books get delayed, sometimes they get cancelled all together. Most of the time the trades will be available. Prices are also suggested and subject to change at the discretion of the shop owner or the publisher themselves.

And hey, if you like what I'm doing tell your friends!  Give me a link, name drop me, plus 1 the posts on Google+ - it all helps.  And if you REALLY like me, (doubtful), then follow me on Twitter @TiberiusTaylor or just click this LINK.  Also, I started a Facebook group for those of us who aren't in to Twitter.  Thanks to everyone who does read, it means a lot - here's a bonus cross over image to get you all fired up!

Batgirl Vol. 5: Deadline

The little that I have read of the New 52 Batgirl stories have been well written and entertaining. The only thing I will say, which most people agree on, is they shouldn't have "cured" Barbara. I know, I know, she's been stuck in that chair for 20 years or whatever it is now, but she was an awesome symbol and role model for handicapped people of all ages and creeds.  I get why they did it and it is hard to keep things fresh for a character when nothing changes.  I just felt like that was something they should have left the same.  She was a positive message.  Now she's just another superhero, even if she is a well written one.  While I'm sort of on the topic, it also bothered me when DC wouldn't let the writers show Batwoman get married.  Why the hell not?!  Last time I looked at a calendar it was 2015 and gay marriage is now a part of our landscape.  I love DC but they sometimes have some unrepentantly old school ways of thinking about things.

Batman Adventures Vol. 2 

The notable thing about this book is it collects the very first comic book appearance of Harley Quinn.  These aren't new stories like I thought.  They're reprints of a mid-90's series called, you guessed it, Batman Adventures.  These must have been going on around the time that Batman: The Animated Series was dominating the airwaves as the art style is very close to that. Probably nothing in here that would be cannon, per se, but it might still be worth a look - even just for Harley's comic book debut.

THE REST (Such as it is)

Batman - Legends Of The Dark Knight Vol. 4


  1. Hey Lee, glad to see you're back at blogging about comics again! I used to read your column at Trade Reading Order -- I was an editor there for a time, but I'm not sure how much our paths actually crossed. I just came across this blog, and I'm looking forward to delving into your older posts.

    1. Thanks, man! Super excited our paths crossed again! Spread the good word if you like what you see!
