So here’s what I actually did buy this week:
The Uranian #3
Blackest Night #8
Marvels Project #7
Justice Society #37
While I recommend all four, probably the best of the pack was Marvels Project. Brubaker makes Marvel’s Golden Age seem fresh and the plot comes together in a way that seems effortless.
Blackest Night comes in 2nd. I’ve enjoyed this series but what really interrupted my enjoyment this issue was the wholesale resurrection of characters. With the minor exception of J’Onn J’Onzz, I can’t say I was missing any of them. And even in J’Onzz’s case, given his last mini-series, his death in Final Crisis was a mercy killing so I was good with it.
This really sours me on the DC universe. Is there anyone left to resurrect from Didio’s childhood?
