Just going into my local comic shop i picked up Secret Invasion #1 by Brian Bendis and Leinil Yu. Olivia and I both felt this Mini-Series was pretty good. But as with most of these big events they tend to end very weak. After reading the first issue i was hooked all over again. I went back and read Civil War and i came bake to the Batman title during the whole RIP and Battle For The Cowl. I tried to go back to reading Ultimate Spider-Man and to be honest after a point that book was just to far gone. I felt that after awhile the book just really got away from the creators and editorial staff.
I branched out and read other comics that i had never read before. After talking to a few of my friends who were apart of the New Jersey hardcore band "The Hold Outs" they asked if i was reading Captian America or the Superman family group of books. When i told them that i wasn't, they told me that i should start and thanks to them i've been buying those books for almost three years now. I really liked Bucky Cap and i wanted him to be around for a long time, but hey, you can't have everything.
Olivia got me into reading DC's Tiny Titans. Which is a truly awesome book. I mean it's meant to be aimed at children, but readers of all ages can enjoy it. I think that's what i like about Tiny Titans, you could give that comic to just about anybody and they could enjoy it. But for politcal reasons i never give the book it's due when we talk about it on the show. I can't be shown as a weak little sissy boy. That's a joke folks. I'm all man.
Amazing Spider-Man became the must have book because i started buying the book when the "New Ways To Die" Story by Dan Slott and John Romita Jr. Dan Slott has a great handle on not just Spidey but on Peter Parker as well.Dan's stories are up there with some of the all time greats and the fact that he had John Romita Jr. draw it made it the must have book each and everytime it came out. (I'm pretty sure that around this time the book was shipping to comic shops three times a month.)
Well that's all for now but in the next and final part of Trip Down Comic Book Lane i'll give the scoop on how Olivia and I created The Verbal Mosh. So until next time go read some comics and e-mail me what you guys are reading at firstname.lastname@example.org.
