I guess I have to face the fact that I’m reading more comics than books these days. Enough that I should probably start doing mini reviews for them, too. I’m currently on the new Doctor Strange volume and am liking it so much more than I thought I would, kind of like Invincible Iron Man and Uncanny Avengers (a title mostly saved by Deadpool, for me). On the other hand, I didn’t quite enjoy Amazing Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy as much as I expected to – Peter Parker isn’t as compelling to me these days (I’m more of a Miles fan now) and even though I LOVE Kitty Pryde (and Rocket, and Groot) I didn’t quite warm to the new Guardians team. Maybe I will later. As far as DC goes, I’m surprising myself by really loving all these Batman-related titles like We Are Robin and Gotham Academy and Batgirl of Burnside, when I can’t stand Batman himself. I hope the rebirth thing wouldn’t change that.

(I think I don’t have to talk about how awesome Wic+Div and Paper Girls are, because everyone knows they’re awesome… right?)
