I don't even know who Mockingbird is, unless I'm forgetting something.

she's a SHIELD agent, and marries Hawkeye. Through the years she's had various connections with various Avengers lineups. But knowing nothing... I recommend this series based off the first issue. Chelsea Cain's writing is phenomenal for this character. I'm so impressed.

Bought this on the strength of a recommendation by the guy in the shop. Haven't started it yet but I'm not sure. I read the back on the train home and it's 'family man turns animal turns activist', and I'm not that interested in any of those things. Hmmm.

Just saw this. Thought it might be of interest.

Entire DC Rebirth line to be made available digitally... for free

Didn't read the article yet.

Also I've got a friend of mine who owns a hobby shop looking into getting ahold of Walter Simpson's run on The Mighty Thor, which from the little I've read seems to be the character's '80s gold standard.

I've actually so enjoyed the bits I've read, and have heard so many good things about it that I would consider buying the full hard bound omnibus but it's like $200. Fuck that.

picked up quite a bit today...

Inhumans Vs X-Men #0 - new series, excited to check it out.

New Talents Showcase - an 80 page one-shot of new DC writers/artists.

Batman Annual - a new Batman one-shot taking place in winter.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #4 - just came out today. LOVE this series.

Batman Long Halloween - my wife has been wanting to read this and I only read it on Kindle myself.

Mockingbird #2-5 - loved the first issue, and so did my wife so we grabbed the whole first TPB book of issues.

Extraordinary X-Men #12 - the only one I was missing from the second TPB book.

and a DC Direct Currents and new Marvel Previews.

Know what? I have NEVER read so much as a single Inhumans monthly. I've seen iconic characters like Black Bolt (who I really like) in arcs for other characters, and in large arcs like House of M, but I seriously have never read a single issue of *actual* Inhumans.

I do love Black Bolt though, and I was just talking to a friend about his battles with Thor and Hulk, and how he's essentially one of the most powerful non-Celestial/Eternal characters in the Marvel universe... and being a Superman fan, I'm drawn to that kind of epic, almost absolute power. So I was thinking of diving in to some back issues and then checking out Inhumans vs. X-Men (or is it Death of X? Meh... I just know Inhumans and X-Men fanboys have had a long-running kind of feud, so I'm interested in seeing them clash.

But I don't know fuckall about most of the individual Inhumans characters. Just their mythology. Which is interesting, and seems a bit left-of-center for Marvel.

Anyway, let me know how this goes.

Oh, also... that Batman Day comic you have is not the same thing as either of the Rebirth No.1's I told you about earlier. It's a free original story for Batman Day.

Anyway, just buy this one, like I said before. That Batman Day thing is just a squirt in a tissue.
READ THIS AND ALL ISSUES THAT FOLLOW:
 


Here's the variant (BY TIM SALE!!!)
 


Remember... you can SKIP THIS ONE:
 
as its just a transitional story and does not factor into the issue above.

Wondering a bit why you haven't read these yet.

Also I got Guardians of the Galaxy (2008) Vol. 2 yesterday. Never read it before. Iron Man's still with the team. You can tell the movie was adapted from this version of Guardians. Story's not the same, but the tone is similar (even though Chris Pratt's Star Lord is WAY better than the pretty boy princely Star Lord from the comics), and it pulls from the same character lineup.

Ugh. I need a new iPad.

They are in my To Read pile. Are you sure though? Comicbookdb says it is the same. Same writers/artists. It even says I am Gotham inside.

What is the first thing said in the one you want me to read? I will check against my issue.

Oh snap. I'm so sorry. You're right!

What the..?

They're the same thing. Issue one of "I am Gotham," Finch and King's collab for the ACTUAL beginning of Batman's Rebirth "reboot."

I was confused because in the iTunes Store, the Batman Day 2016 comic is FREE while the regular edition (with a different cover but the exact same shit in it!) is $2.99. I spent that bread TWICE on getting a digital and paper copy of the non-Batman's day one, so it kinda pisses me off that it'a fucking FREE if you get it with a different (lamer) cover! Only reason I bought the digital was for readability. Would have grabbed that free shit if I could.

Also, I covered two Batman Day events at local libraries and I swore they had free (or $0.26 at comic shops) Batman Day Comics with the cover of the one you have, and I swear they were mostly for kids coloring activities.

But yeah, I just grabbed the free one and it's the same exact thing I spent money on.

My bad. Sorry. Carry on.

Sev, you read the new Batman Annual yet? It's all Christmas-themed stories. Pretty good.

I'll read Bats #1 next...

^you should def get that issue Sev. Really good stuff.


I finished issue #10 of Watchmen last night. I'll prop wrap up the last two tonight. I feel like it's the really obvious thing to say, but Watchmen is easily one of the greatest series ever.

I tried to put into words for my wife, but it's like... a "normal" comic issue takes me 15 mins. An issue of Watchmen takes me 30. That book just takes a lot more brain power. It's just so deep and verbose.

Would be nice to finish it up before New Comic Wednesday anyway. I was on vacation last week, so I got my TO READ pile down pretty good. I think the only things I had in it were TMNT #62, Wonder Woman #1 (that my wife told me to read), and Champions #1 which I got for free and really know nothing about.

Besides those I had pulled Batman Year One and The Eternals Herod Factor from my backlog as possible candidates to dip into.
