Haven’t read it yet. The series under Tomasi has had mixed results. Which is surprising, because I usually enjoy his work.



Nothing Outstanding in Tomasi run

Most issues I can’t even remember what issue was about a couple of hours after reading which doesn’t happen for me with any other title.

And he has pulled that King trick of finding out that the previous issue was a hallucination.

@McEddard and @TurokSonOfStone1950, I agree that Tomasi’s 'Tec has been mixed at best. The Mrs. Freeze stuff looked mildly interesting as it came out, but I’ll catch up with it in trade.

Woo, another Lois Lane reader! :+1:

I’m always happy to see people reading the best Superman comic of the moment. :grinning:


Indeed. It’s in my top five for DC books right now.

Welcome to the community, @GothamClerk359! :smiley: It sounds like you’re going to have quite the haul. And, as @Vroom said, I’m loving your choices here.

You have quite the list ahead of you too, @TurokSonOfStone1950! :open_mouth:


Thank you @ZatannaAndHerSpells This is actually my first post since I joined only a few weeks ago! It’s quite the haul but I like them all for the most part. A couple of them I’ve been back and forth on but I’ll stick with them.


X-men #4
Marauders #4
Detective Comics #1018

Edit: Action Comics #1018 <-- Super Messy
Edit 2: Thor #1 <-- Really interesting, too early to decide how I feel though.

Lois Lane #7 — This continues to be the book of my dreams. Wish there was a little more Vic, but I’m happy to see Renee. And she’s a Letterkenny fan!

Justice League Dark #18 — Love how all the plots Tynion has been seeding since the first issue are all coming together now. Very excited to see how it plays out. Also: DRAKUL KARFANG, FROM JLA: LEAGUE OF ONE! WHAT A PULL!

Action Comics #1018 — I loved everything about this issue except for the actual Legion of Doom fight. Love to see Clark being Clark.

Star Wars #1 — Charles Soule is still the modern king of Star Wars. This series is going to be a treat.

Why, I remember the days when Charles Soule was working for DC. Back in the Long, Long Ago…

I’m indebted to Greg Rucka for two things:

A. The Lois Lane mini
2. Exposing me to Letterkenny via the above series.

As do I, but Soule’s Star Wars work is much better. He’s where he belongs.
