Last month, I spent hundreds of dollars on DC Graphic Novels on the Nook app., to avoid the randomness and single issues of the Library here, including all the Batman and Superman recommendations made by fans here and communists on the web.
On Friday, I bought the complete Hellboy, all four volumes, that was for sale at Comixology, plus volume ones of the original Thunder Agents and Marvel’s Agents of Atlas.
And at home, I found many of my old comics, including reprints of Simon and Kirby’s Double Life of Private Strong and The Fly, DC Graphic novel of Joe Kubert’s Hawkman and single issues of Jim Aparo’s Spectre, as well as Will Eisner’s the Spirit, published by Warren Publications decades ago. There were in a sense, free, since the payments was long ago. The old Batman and Superman 100 page giants I found are also great, even today, when their characterizations are so different, The editors were selecting from decades of Batman and Superman comics and picked the best, all complete, done in one issue.
There was no New DC because I had New 52 and Rebirth already. Comic Book Roundup Websites tells me what comics I should buy each week.
DC Rebirth brought me many of the best issues I ever read, but I am very concerned about the New ‘Big Names’ now writing the comics, as well as recent plot turns. Justice League is great, but like Dark Metal, I have trouble understanding. Superman, Batman, Titans, Red Hood and Nightwing are books that I no longer read with enthusiasm. Only Batgirl and Supergirl have improved dramatically.
