    Will buy:
    Adventures of Superman #9
    Batman ’66 #7
    Batman: Li’l Gotham #10
    Scooby-Doo Team-Up #2
    Astro City #8


    Might buy:
    None.

    More elaboration on this month's solicits on my blog.

    For someone that doesn't go near the DCU-set Batman books (though guess the New 52 falls under that in general these days), I certainly seem to enjoy the non-canonical stuff like Batman 66. :p

    My comments:

    - Might get that Martian Manhunter TPB. I remember reading John Ostrander's Martian Manhunter: American Secrets mini-series and liking it (though it kind of lost steam at the end), which drove a comment much later that a solo MM animated series should have been an X-Files derivative in spandex, with him being the common denominator in seriously weird stuff. And I like John Ostrander in general.

    - Heard decent things about the Power Girl run, and that new TPB looks like a mighty chunk of comics for a decent price. Problem is that I don't much care for Geoff Johns (and especially his need to explain the boob window) and I've never been a huge fan of Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti's corporate comics stuff, so I don't know that I am that compelled by the arguments that these comics are fun.

    - Batman: Li'l Gotham TPB? Mine.

    Somehow, when I was going through the solicits, I thought there was more.

    Made some decent adjustments to my monthly pull. I dropped Batman, Batgirl, Justice League of America, Nightwing and Justice League Dark. All (aside from JLD) have been "Meh" for a while now, and JLD being part of an 18 part crossover with three other books I don't read was the final straw on that. I've added, though, Detective Comics and Green Arrow, both of which have been pretty dang solid as of late.

    It really is a fun comic. I own the the whole Conner run (got Amanda to sign it at NY comic con last year!) Yeah the Johns issues aren't that good, but the Palmiotti ones are just so fun, it made me remember why I started reading comics in the first place.
