Ok, so I have probably the most nerd dilemma ever. On Wednesday Flashpoint #3 come out, but I have yet to get #2. My comic book store has been sold out and won’t restock it till the 2nd printing comes out, which will be weeks. So I need to find another comic book store, possibly Cedar Falls, Iowa, and get the second issue before Wednesday. Damn! I’m a nerd!
Today I picked up six new issues. I started off with the four new Flashpoint releases: Project Superman, Hal Jordan, Canterbury Cricket and Green Arrow Industries. The last two are just one-shots and the first two are the final three issues series released with the Flashpoint event. The last two issues I got were good ones. First I got the third issue of Batman Arkham City, a good issue. However, I feel it was a bit of a filler but still a good read. The last issue I got was a new series, an eight issue from Marvel called Captain America Band of Heroes. Intriguing first issue not dealing only with Cap but new characters. Looking forward to the next issue.
The more and more I read into Marvel’s Fear Itself and DC Comics’ Flashpoint event
I am coming to the conclusion that the story in Fear Itself is better but the event of Flashpoint is more collectible and self starting.
I went to the comic book store today and picked up some new issues, and I’m going to start some new series. I picked up a one-shot, Batman: The Return. This is an older issue and a great darker issue of Batman. Next I picked up two new three issue series for Flashpoint, Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown and Lois Lane and The Resistance. I have all of the released series and one-shots for the Flashpoint event. I am still missing the second issue of the main series Flashpoint. The last four comics I got today were Marvel comics and from the Fear Itself event. I got Spider-man issues one and two of three, and I also started Fear Itself Youth in Revolt, picked up issues one and two of six. Good day to be a comic book nerd.
