Hi Internet People,
Over the past few days I’ve been reading a lot of comics. I went to the store and picked up my pulls on Friday before Christmas and I totally hadn’t realized I would have so much to read. The Suicide Squad vs Justice League crossover has started and the first issue was full of characters. I think it’ll be really cool to see so many DC characters interacting. Then Harley Quinn had a holiday issue which was freaking hilarious. She went into Santa’s mind and wound up fighting the most random assortment of villainous beings ever.
There were also new Torchwood, Backstagers, and Spell on Wheels issues. Torchwood was full of twists and I really want to know what is going on with the mysterious stowaway. Backstagers got super creepy at the end and I loved the alternate reality-esque introduction of a new stage crew. Spell on Wheels was so wonderful and sweet, plus the women found out that there is something far more nefarious going on than they first anticipated. There was a new Detective Comics addition that had some flashback stuff in it, I am just so excited for the Batwoman stuff that I’m getting antsy for her specific storyline to start. Raven had a new issue too and whatever she is fighting is super dangerous. The evil carnival element is frightening, it reminds me a bit of Something Wicked This Way Comes.
I also picked up the newest Lumberjanes graphic novel. There were merpeople! April, who we learn loves mermaids, she learns that they actually prefer not being called that, wants to help get an underwater band back together. The merpeople have the coolest outfits and honestly I want to be a merperson now. Plus we got some great backstory for the Lumberjanes themselves. For Christmas my friend got me The DC Universe By Neil Gaiman, which I have almost bought like four times. What is so great about that book is that he loves Batman and I love Batman so it’s a combination of two of my favorite things. There’s a fun Superman and Green Lantern story in it too, plus Metamorpho. I’d never heard of him before, sorry DC folks I don’t know all the things, but his story made me laugh.
I’ve had fun chilling out and reading lots of comics, but I need to get to reading some books and binging some shows too. I’m so behind!
Talk to ya tomorrow,
