As you may have noticed, I haven't been posting much lately. Still in the doldrums and still trying to fight of a ferocious cold that I have had for almost two weeks... and it is just hanging on and on and on...!
In fact, I didn't even GO to the comic book store on Wednesday because there were only two books that I wanted, and it seemed like a bit of a chore.
It's not that I don't love my books... it's just that they... and I are seemingly in a bit of a rut.
Take my beloved Green Lanterns. Too much of Hal bloviating, and too little of Guy being awesome. It is nice to have Kyle, Ganthet and Sayd back, but this past issue was just an old bird-headed lady telling her grandchildren a bedtime story about how amaaaaazing all the Green Lanterns are. Which is actually not a bad premise if she had a specific tale at hand as opposed to..." Oh Gad, they're just so fabulous!"
Saga continues to actually BE fabulous, and consistently continues to break my heart. Squirrel Girl, Ms. Marvel and Hellcat are probably my favorite Fun books, and Thor is great, but needs more Loki. Champions is a hoot, and I am getting very invested in Nova, which is not a thing I ever thought I would say.
So... what books are grabbing YOU?
