    Wait, can you also get comic books on the internet?

    I just read a couple of Avengers collections - Siege and Secret Invasion

    I just found out that WonderCon 2012 will be held in Anaheim instead of SF (Moscone Center will be undergoing renovations during that time).

    Oh, that's interesting. Anaheim Convention Center is really nice and HUGE, much larger than Moscone. I suspect it will only be held in one of the halls.

    Even better, Wizard World gave up their show in April to accommodate Wondercon. It is a red letter day!

    It's been said before, but def. Preacher and Y The Last Man.

    I guess DC is re-launching everything now, so if you're into superhero stuff - good timing.

    The new X-Men: Schism storyline is great. The new run of Daredevil has been really great so far. Can't go wrong with any of Ed Brubaker's take on Captain America, not to mention his new Criminal book, The Last of the Innocent (the Archie with Sex & Drugs portions of that book are worth it alone). I know I am forgetting a lot, but that's everything off the top of my head.

    Also, on the Daredevil topic, if you have never read "Daredevil: Born Again," make it a priority. You will not regret it, although you will regret that Frank Miller's writing has regressed a lot in the past decade.

    (full disclosure: I make mine Marvel).

    Yes to this. Never in my time have I ever thought I would say that I love "X-Force," but damn, this series ends up being way, way better than anyone expected nearly every issue (except one).

    Rick Remender, who writes "Uncanny X-Force," also writes "Venom," which I also hear good things about. It's as if he takes these titles that were hot in the 90's, but in retrospect, were dumb, and makes them not only readable, but actually good and worth people's time. If he starts writing* for "Lady Death" or "Gen 13," watch out! (for good things!)

    *provided he isn't locked down by an exclusive contract with Marvel.

    Any of y'all reading Jeff Lemire's Animal Man? Two issues in and I'm blown away. It's creepy and oddly beautiful at the same time. I also really want to start the new Swamp Thing series.

    YES +5. That, Aquaman and Swamp Thing top my DC reboot list.

    YES

    I really liked when they took AM to Vertigo. Glad they are keeping the character dark.

    The Swamp Thing has been disappointing so far. But, I am hopeful.

    I haven't read the Aquaman reboot yet. Need to hit up Demonoid.
    Swampy isn't doing it for me yet, but will give it time as I love the character.

    I also like the art and direction of the main Batman title.

    For those of you new to comics (MJA) or new to DC, here's my list of the #2 books from DC's reboot I will be pulling based on my interest in the first issues. I nearly pulled every first issue so hopefully this will make some sense:

    Aquaman, Swamp Thing, Animal Man, Batman, JLA, Justice League Dark (supposed to be one of the more mature runs for those of you that liked the Animal Man direction), DC Presents (Deadman run right now), Action Comics, Grifter, Savage Hawkman, Blue Beetle, and Nightwing.

    DC also has a really cool 6-issue monthly miniseries going on focusing solely on Penguin titled Penguin: Pain and Prejudice. It started this month (last week to be specific).

    I really like the reboots of Animal Man, All-Star Western, Action Comics & Batman. I think I'll even hang in for a couple more issues of Justice League and Detective Comics, before I make up my mind....Gotta check out Aquaman and Smamp Thing, though, I've heard some good things.

    Looks like the "New 52" is paying off for DC comics. They sold 5 million issues in just 6 weeks!

    I've been enjoying the "New 52." I've always wanted to get into comic series, but never wanted to just start in the middle of the action, so this is all really cool. I got Swamp Thing, Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and The Flash.

    I think my favorite one was The Flash #1. I am very intrigued about where the Green Lantern, Swamp Thing, and Aquaman stories will go.

    I ordered Animal Man #1 and #2, as well as the #2s of the others I got (except for The Flash, because it wasn't available yet... I'll probably get it later though.)

    I've sampled enough of the new 52 now to feel that most of it is well, average. A lot of glitter with little substance. Some are excellent, like Batman, Animal Man, and Detective, among a few others. One of my favorite characters was Green Arrow when Mike Grell took over. Very disappointed to see they have regressed with that title (IMO). Animal Man so far is the top title of the new crop that I have come across. If you haven't picked that up, do so immediately.

    Have you guys read anything by Joe Sacco?
    I saw a gig poster for Yo la Tengo a while ago and I wanted to find out who this guy was.

    Then I picked up one of his books
    It is one of the best books I've read all year.

    He also illustrated a graphic novel adaptation for
    one flew over the cuckoo's nest,though I have not read it it looks pretty cool.

    Just won an X-Men Inferno Omnibus on ebay. This was the first crossover I remember looking forward to as a kid. Hopefully it aged well. Between this, X-tinction Agenda and the 2 Lee/Claremont omnibuses, i'll be able to read my fave x-men era across 4 collections (issues 235 thru 280). I like these overside hardcovers much better than the tpb's i've been picking up piecemeal over the last year. the paper stock used in many of them is atrocious.

    Is anyone else reading Batwoman? That first arc that wrapped up last week was pretty brilliant.
