2011: return of the 2 bad guys!

Action Ash
I know henchmen. It's been a while since we have graced your screens with our literary skills, but what can I say? It was Christmas!

...and then it was New Years.

Valhallahan and I have been far too busy eating ourselves sick and drinking ourselves stupid to bother with you guys! However now the festivities are over and it's time to get serious again and talk about comic books. Srs Bzns!

On Christmas eve I bought a bunch of great stuff:

Morning Glories #5 - It wrapped up the first arc, but still doesn't really answer any questions. Still love it.
Teen Titans: Cold Case - I don't really have any interest in the Titans but it had Captain Cold on the cover. What's a boy to do? They had a big fight with the rogues, it was awesome.
Superior #3 - This is a really nice looking book and the story is fun. Thumbs up.
The Cape - An IDW one shot based on a short story by a dude named Joe Hill. Was good, I want to see more of it.
Namor #5 - I got this because the X-men vampire bullshit is over and I'm hoping this series will become good now.
Legacies #8 - I love the way this series is guiding me through DC history.

As you can see I had some reading material to delve into while pretending to be interested in whatever it was my mum was banging on about on boxing day.

Fast forward to New Years Eve and it was nearly time for partying, but there was just one thing I had to do. You guessed it, buy some funny books! Here's what I got...

Robert E. Howard's Savage Sword #1 - Holy blood stained axe! A magazine wholly dedicated to comic adaptions of Robert E. Howard's creations? By Crom, I'm in!

The Flash #8 - Professor Zoom looks pissed! I wonder what's got him so angry?

Detective Comics #872 - Jock is Super Geil! I'm really enjoying this story too, this issue introduces a creepy cult of rich people who auction and buy super villain's equipment and are obsessed with morbid landmarks. Well done Mr Snyder, keep it up.

Incognito: Bad Influences #2 -
Seems like it's taken ages for this issue to come out. Glad it's here now.

SHAZAM! The Golden age of the worlds mightiest mortal -
An amazing hardback collecting images of all sorts of weird and wonderful Captain Marvel merchandise and discussing his immense popularity before the lawsuit that killed it all off.

Happy New years suckers! I hope ya'll had as great a time as I did
