I'm going to admit it right off the bat, I always used to think comic books were stupid. I grew up on books, movies, TV shows, and video games so stuff like comic books and manga always seemed like a less in depth book or a mere fraction of what I would get from a movie of video game. With the recent DC reboot I decided to try out some comics, I've been apart of Whiskey Media since Giant Bomb launched and while I'm a premium member I never really came to Comic Vine all that often. I'm also in a unique situation in where I am purchasing all my comics digitally through my iPad, there are no comic book stores near me and the closest one is a comic book store/alligator zoo so yeah... Anyway here are the books I have purchased and read so far:
- Batman #1
- Catwoman #1
- DC Universe Presents: Deadman #1
- Wonder Woman #1
- Red Hood and the Outlaws #1
All of these books have been fantastic. I feel DC has done a great job in not only making them accesible for new readers, like myself, but retaining what previous fans love about the characters, yes yes I know Starfire is a slut now but I agree with Tony in that there is something more going on there. From the unique and deep story of Deadman to the, I find, funny and exciting Catwoman I never thought comics would be this entertaining. DC has won me over completely, I plan on buying more this week as well as Justice League as that is dropping to $2.99 on digital stores. I also look forward to coming on Comic Vine more often for reviews, stories, community and the podcast, listened to this week's and it was both funny and informative.
