Red Hood and the Outlaws #34

Technically this is the last issue I'll get before the five years later one shots. Well I'll be getting one more comic this month but it won't be affected by the time jump.


Trip to the LCS

This was the first time I've been to the store since they remodeled that I could actually look around. It's usually too busy to do so without getting in someone's way. I came later than usual and for the first time in ages saw a couple of women shopping too. That was nice, I don't think it's so much that women don't read comics (a large percent do) just that some don't feel comfortable in comic stores. I've been lucky not to have encountered the horror stores I've heard about online. Anyway first thing I noticed was a digest trade of the JLU comic with Superman and Booster Gold. I didn't see a price though. Since I didn't know if I had enough on me I put it back. Hopefully it's still there when I return.

I also saw the small My Little Pony section. Yes I know it's a thing but the hybrid pony/doll was really freaky. The DCC collection was nice although I noticed the paint apps on the Earth 2 figures weren't great especially with WW. Wonder Girl came out good and the effect of the shiny red star field costume was nice. Oh to have more time and money to get some trades.

Barbaras' Anger Issues

I found this post showing some examples of Barbara lashing out at others in the new 52. Gail Simone weighs in on this as well.

Thoughts below.

Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #4-6

Now that I have all the issues together again it's time to finish my Serenity reviews.

Happy Birthday Lian Harper and Lois Lane?

I knew it was supposed to be Lians' birthday but apparently it's also Lois'? Well here's to one of my favorite superhero kids and to one of if not the best female characters.

November Solicits

Just a few comics that stood out including one in particular that bugged me.

Batman and Robin #34 Preview

This is why I quit getting this series. I'm curious enough with the cameos to take a peek but this problem never gets properly addressed. It's so infuriating that this behavior keeps getting ignored. Needless to say these are my unhappy thoughts on the preview.
