Great week this week on DCUI… even if Hardware Season One is delayed a bit…

I really enjoyed Superman #29.

Me too, yesterday actually.

I think I’m going to like this run, although the art was not as good as I would have liked. But the story was good.

I read Batman: The World yesterday and I just read Titans United #1. I’ll reluctantly read Joker #1 at some point, but purely for the Bluebird story backup.

I’ve been keeping up with Urban Legends so I don’t need to read that again.

Urban legends I definitely want to check out this week

I’ve realized lately that I enjoy the anthology feel of comic books. Batman The World was really good too. So many stories in a short form. It’s just nice. And it gives more writers and artists a chance to do their thing.

I read everything yesterday, but I’m a bit voracious about reading. The slower part was entering them all into my database. Since it’s a new version of the universe, I have to set-up all the characters again, which really slows me down. I think I enjoyed Batman: The World, the most. Not every story was a gem, but they were certainly fun. Joker was probably my least favorite. Wasn’t bad, but didn’t do a lot for me.

Nice, I’d like to see your comic book database sometime if that’s okay!

It’s not online, which makes it hard. It’s an FM database and I’ll admit that I haven’t wanted to spend the time and money to figure out how best to put it on the web. One of these days, though…

ah, gotcha, so no way to export to Excel.

While I could export to Excel, it would take a lot of finessing to make it readable. Probably something I should think about, though.

Wait, did Jason Todd just shoot someone with real bullets in Batman: Urban Legends #1:?
