Interlude – New 52 Checklist

Hiya folks, time for a quick news update.

I’ve just finished reading the latest Superboy volume which is currently being turned into an evisceratory review-like thing, but in the meantime I’d like to address something.

Many of you (read: no-one at all) have asked me which New 52 entries I will and won’t be covering, since I’ve stated before there are plenty I won’t be touching even if it turns out they hold the Hitchhiker’s Guide question to the answer of 42. Thus, listed below are the books I will, might and will not be touching over the course of the next few months as DC’s reboot volumes round out their first year.

Superboy: Incubation
Green Arrow: The Midas Touch
Red Lanterns: Blood and Rage
Batwing: The Lost Kingdom

Batman – The Dark Knight: Knight Terrors
Hawk and Dove: First Strikes
Swamp Thing: Raise Them Bones
Aquaman: The Trench
Teen Titans: It’s Our Right to Fight
Green Lantern – New Guardians: The Ring Bearer
Nightwing: Traps and Trapezes
Supergirl: The Last Daughter of Krypton
The Flash: Move Forward
Superman: What Price Tomorrow?
Red Hood and the Outlaws: REDemption

Legion of Super-Heroes: Hostile World
Grifter: Most Wanted
Stormwatch: The Dark Side
Deathstroke: Legacy
Justice League International: The Signal Masters
Justice League Dark: In the Dark
Green Lantern Corps: Fearsome
Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E.: War of the Monsters
Wonder Woman: Blood
Birds of Prey: Trouble in Mind
Batgirl: The Darkest Reflection
Captain Atom: Evolution

Catwoman: The Game
OMAC: Omactivate!
Mister Terrific: Mind Games
Static Shock: Supercharged
I, Vampire: Tainted Love
Demon Knights: Seven Against the Dark
Men of War: Uneasy Company
Blue Beetle: Metamorphosis
Resurrection Man: Dead Again
Suicide Squad: Kicked in the Teeth
The Fury of Firestorm – The Nuclear Men: God Particle
Legion Lost: Run from Tomorrow
Voodoo: What Lies Beneath
All-Star Western: Guns and Gotham
The Savage Hawkman: Darkness Rising
Blackhawks: The Great Leap Forward
DC Universe Presents: Deadman and & Challengers of the Unknown

Anything not on this list is stuff I’ve already reviewed, and can be found on this site using the drop-down menus on the right-hand side of the page.

Truth be told, not many of you may read this or really care one way or the other, but I figure it’s just good to get down on paper what my actual plan is. Since money and time are both finite resources I need to budget both effectively whilst still getting a good look at most of the New 52 spectrum; the majority of things posted in the “not read” column just don’t stand out to me in any way (besides Suicide Squad for the massive fan backlash it’s incurred, at least over Harley Quinn’s hookerization). If people want to recommend specific titles to me I’ll be happy to read them, but as it stands this organisation of things is the most efficient use of my time.

Plus, y’know, comic books don’t grow on trees. I mean, the paper kinda does, but still.
