I've been rereading a lot of old comics in trade paperbacks recently. I've been espically enjoying the original G.I. Joe comic that Marvel did, but I've also been speeding through some Essentials TP's and other random stuff on my bookshelf. This does, however, make it hard to keep current continuity straight, because I'm confused about what are old storylines and what's new. Wonder Man is still wearing that red leisure suit in Avengers and Bucky's still dead...huh? Bucky is alive? I wonder what Captain America thinks about that...Oh, so Cap is dead? I need to stop reading Essential Champions and get back to the here and now.

Rob Zombie Presents El SuperbeastoROB ZOMBIE PRESENTS THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL SUPERBEASTO TP

Rob Zombie is one of the few rock stars I can take when it comes to producing his own comics. Other musicians tend to really stink it up when they unleash a comic book project on us, but Mr. Zombie at least has really great style and an original story that doesn't involve him or his band. El Superbeasto is tied into a new animated movie Rob is working on and it features all kinds of monsters, devils and masked wrestlers. I'm sold.

Cover of Batman #655

BATMAN #665

Grant Morrison + Batman = Awesome. Look it up in your algebra textbook.

Cover to Justice League of America #9

JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #9

This is part of the JLA/JSA crossover and I've really loved the first few chapters. Watching Batman kick Karate Kid or Judo Lad or whoever from the Legion in the nuts was fantastic.

Cover to Mighty Avengers #3

MIGHTY AVENGERS #3

The new Ultron story arc from Mr. Bendis is A+. I'm having a hard time picking between New Avengers and Mighty Avengers as to which is the best new Avengers series.

Cover to X-Factor #19
X-FACTOR #19

I used to read ANYTHING that had an "X" in the title. But nowadays all I pick up is Astonishing X-Men, Ultimate X-Men and X-Factor. That's what, three out of 90 titles? Peter David is totally killing it in X-Factor, providing a great mix of flawed characters and awkward situations. This one is a real winner.

ULTIMATES 2 #13

If you were betting on how late this book would be and you took the over on 85 months – you're a winner. Ah, but you know what? It's still going to rule.
