I started with Wonder Woman #601. I'm pretty sure I was the target audience for the renumbering and the new outfit. I am fine with that. It worked and I'm hooked. I'll be sticking with her, pants or swimsuit, to see who she is going to become.

If you remember my geek out love fest for Axe Cop, then it will not be hard to understand why Super Dinosaur appeals to me. It is much more kid oriented than most of what I read, but that is why I love it. I wouldn't mind a dinosaur best friend. (Especially if he was able to overcome that tiny arms dilemma.)
This is the final in the four book introduction to the Captain America that we should all expect to see in the movie. I picked a bad (though everyone else says good) time to get interested in Captain America. Completely oblivious of the movie, I decided to look into him and ended up reading what seems like a half a dozen different versions of the same origin story. (None of which gave me any clue to what is happening in the main story line or any explanation of why the Avengers have abandoned Bucky in the Gulag.) This has been my favorite. It has gotten me excited about the movie and the character so I don't want to miss out on the final book.

Hal here is my one half-hearted purchase this week. I haven't read any Green Lantern at all. Hubby and I went to see the movie this weekend. It wasn't a great movie, and Hal isn't my favorite hero, but based on this movie alone the Green Lantern Corps, may be my favorite group of do-gooders ever. I am completely sold on the concept of the Green Lantern. I really like the energy of will foundation for their powers (though I probably would have happily accepted them when it was just magic) and I love the creative potential of what they can do. They can bash in faces when necessary, but there seems to be a huge opportunity for unique problem solving approaches with their powers. When you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail, so I understand that when you have just one super power (or basic set) then that is what you use to solve every problem. The power that the Green Lanterns have is to create anything that they can imagine. That sounds awesome! It also sounds like it has a huge potential to disappoint me, but I haven't been disappointed with most of the comics that I've read so far. I'm keeping the faith and since Flash Point is the big summer event I'll happily use it as my gateway to Oa.
