Remember, it's "Toon Zone". Two words! Not one!
Yeesh, what a month. I'll be picking up (excluding things I always pick up, like Gotham Central and Superman/Batman) JLA 96/97, Adventures of Superman 627, Action Comics 814, Green Lantern 176 (it's awesome to have Marz back), and Teen Titans 10.Originally Posted by Animation Otaku

May God forgive us our insanity, and we'll keep pressing on."

Batman Adventures #13 - Batman and Penguin finally have a showdown! That's going to be sweet. Love the cover too.
Batman: Death and the Maidens #9 (of 9) - The conclusion to what, so far, has been one of the best Ra's stories I've ever read.
Batman: Harley and Ivy #1 (of 3) - FINALLY!!
Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #178 - Yay! Devin Greyson writing Batman again!
Fallen Angel #10 - Exellent Peter David book that I wish more people were reading.
Gotham Central #18
Sandman Presents: Thessaly - Witch for Hire #3 (of 4)
Superman/Batman #9 - Here's hoping Loeb's writing improves on this book by then!
Swamp Thing #2 - YAY! New Swamp Thing title!!
Teen Titans #10 - I'm staying on this title at least as long as it takes to see the return of Raven.
Y: The Last Man #19
I might check out Batman: Gotham Knights #52. I'm going to give Lieberman's run a try just to see if I like it.
Haven't decided if I'm going to pick up Batman #626 yet. I've got a major disliking of Judd Winick, and had sworn in the past I was going to skip his run on this title. But, I've liked some of his recent work on The Outsiders, so I may end up checking this out after all.
I also haven't decided about Wonder Woman #203. I've not been thrilled with Rucka's run on the title so far, and was planning on dropping this title is #200 doesn't deliver or get me excited about the book. But, seeing that Batman is going to be appearing in this new storyline, I'm tempted to pick it up - I love Rucka's Batman, and I love what he's done with interaction between the two characters in the past.
"With my feet upon the ground, I lose myself between the sounds
And open wide to suck it in, I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out, I'm reaching for the random, or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.
Spiral out. Keep going"
"Be ashamed to die unless you have won some victory for humanity." -Horace Mann
BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHTS #52 - I like HUSH
BATGIRL #51 - POISON IVY...yeah
BATMAN: HARLEY & IVY #1 (of 3) - Yeah finally
SUPERMAN #204 - Jim Lee is back
SUPERMAN/BATMAN #9 - Turners art is amazing
ROSE & THORN #5 (of 6) - Like the charakter
TEEN TITANS GO! #6 - Todd Nauck is back:anime:
BATMAN ADVENTURES #13 - Maybe
GOTHAM CENTRAL #18 - Like Huntress
ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #627 - Charakter on cover looks cool
What can I say more than "what an great month "
Not so much of a list of stuff I'm buying (not much beyond the usual stuff I get, tho' there's probably going to be a few of them $10 TPBs on the way), but an observation. Is it just me, or are there a whole bunch of completely awesome covers for March? Off the top of my head, the one for Detective Comics (Bats reflected in Mr. Freeze's helmet), Wonder Woman, MOST of the Superman titles, and the usual great work from James Jean (Batgirl and Fables).
Reason #1 to request/demand cover galleries in any TPB.
Animation Anti-Thesis - One man stands as the lone magician.
I'll be picking up:
Batman #626 - I'm not sure how this will turn out but I'm willing to give it a try.
Batman: Gotham Knights #52 - I really need closure on the Hush storyline. Hopefully this arc will answer some questions.
Batman Adventures #13 - This is an excellent book which I buy no matter what, but this looks like it's going to be one hell of an issue.
Batman: Harley & Ivy #1 - Finally!
JLA: Rules of Engagement TP
Justice League Adventures #30 - Finally we get to see Kamandi in the animated universe. Maybe we'll see him in the third season of Justice League. Plus, I like Tim Levins' art.
Superman #204 - I've never been a huge Superman fan, but considering it's Jim Lee and Brian Azzarello...I think that's enough to justify purchasing this title.
Superman/Batman #9 - I hope Loeb can deliver on this storyline.
Superman/Batman: Public Enemies HC
"You get the other guy on the ropes. You keep him there. You mangle his ears. Fill his eyes with blood. Pulp his kidneys. Grind up his ribs. Don't let up. And if he still won't hit the canvas--you go on and bleed him to death."- Frank Castle
Green Lantern 176 - THANK GOD. Ron Marz is back, someone to save this dying book even if for a short time. Its funny that Kyle is finally back on Earth as well with Marz and an end to this dull space saga.
The Flash 209
Teen Titans 10
"Leaping Lanny and Randy Savage are brothers, and Randy Savage, your name is Randy Poffo. THAT'S RIGHT, RANDY POFFO. You're ashamed of going around calling yourself Poffo so you probably got the name Savage because you're ashamed of putting yourself on the same level as your brother because he is much better than you are. YOUR BROTHER IS A HUMAN BEING. YOU'RE NOTHING BUT A SCUMBAG. THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE; YOU'RE A DOG. YOUR NAME IS POFFO." - Ronnie Garvin to Randy Savage, ICW Wrestling, 1980.
JLA: Rules of Engagement TP (I hated this story arc, but I want the JLA in TPB, even if the story ranked low)
Y'know, I heard Swedish chicks dig fish guys. It's a well-known fact.
