Adding to my books to buy this month

I'm getting the second volume of the hardback Justice League: Generation Lost. I don't care if it's not canon anymore I love that series. Yes it had that problem with Tora but overall this was my favorite series for an entire year. I looked forward to each issue, felt excited about the series and didn't have to wait an entire month for the next issue. Plus it was one of the three books Booster Gold was starring in. Good times. Yes I miss things from that series, like Jaime and Captain Atom being part of it, the Gavril/Bea romance, the sense of history with the team, but mostly the Max/Booster relationship. If not for this series (which originally was planned to be something completely different) we probably wouldn't have another JLI. We wouldn't have Gavril. Nate and Jaime got their own series and Booster is officially chosen as the leader.

I'm thinking about doing another meta to compare JLGL to the new JLI but I may wait until the first arc is done first. On another note I still haven't found Demon Knights for a decent price and I might be getting Superboy the week after it comes out because of transportation. 


  1. Generation Lost just drives me nuts, because in so many ways, it was really very GOOD! And then of course, there is the thing with Tora...that for some reason, I just can't let go of.

    But Winick did a good Booster, and I like Gavril, and even Captain Shinypants wasn't horrible. Heck, even Bea wasn't too bad. Not too much with Jaime, but maybe that's for the best. And Peej was decent.

    But I just can't get past Tora!

  2. For me it's pretty easy to block since the Tora thing really didn't play into the plot other than giving another reason for her being upset. It read like something that could be forgotten soon after. Of course I soon got distracted by the inconsistent art on her new uniform.

  3. I forgot that you wanted demon knight and couldn't get it. Was it one that you wanted to try something different with or did you like the series before?

    My brother had it and I quickly gave it a read. I will continue to read that one, if he continues getting it. There was one or two that if he continues to get I may pass unless I am really bored (Mr. Terrific I am looking at you).

    Hope you enjoy the weeks picks if you get to get them this week. I have a few I want to pick up as I narrow down the pack to the 5 or 6 I will stay with for a little bit.

  4. I wanted to try something new plus that writer really earned my respect so I wanted to support it. I only have Superboy and Demon Knights if I can get it. Superboy was still there when I got my week 3 picks, I figure that means I can do the same with #2.
