What’s new for me is some difficulty finding time to write about all the great books I’ve read lately. Between family issues (moving my mother to a care center and vacating her apartment) and work demands (big projects with approaching deadlines) I haven’t had much leisure time. Yet, I continue to keep looking out for worthwhile books, and have this list of suggested items for the week . . . . . . . . . .
CALIGULA #3 (Avatar) - - David Lapham takes on the dark side of Roman life.
ELRIC: THE BALANCE LOST #2 (Boom) - - Chris Roberson’s version of Michael Moorcock’s Multiverse is dynamite!
FLASHPOINT #4 (DC) – seems like an Elseworlds story and not real/maybe not serious, but still enjoying this very much.
FLASHPOINT – BATMAN:KNIGHT OF VENGEANCE #3 (DC ) - - the best of a very good crop of spin-off mini-series. Full of surprises.
IRON MAN 2.0 #7.1 (Marvel) – I like what Nick Spencer has done with James Rhodes and company.
RED SKULL #2 (Marvel) – the early days before Red Skull. Learn why he became so dog-gone mean!
ROGER LANGRIDGE SNARKED #0 (Boom) - - missed his Mighty Thor stories, but I won’t miss this series allegedly based on characters from OZ.
SUPERBOY #10 (DC) – Jeff Lemire is wrapping up his run on this title to make way for the NEW 52 version of Superboy. I’m really going to miss this series.
