The greatest nation is Donation. August 16, 2007 Posted by Mookie
Well it only took about a million years and half of August for me to get around to it, but this month's Donation Wallpapers are up for your consideration. I happen to think they came out looking rather nice, so I hope you enjoy them.

Another bit of business I have to get to around here is the return of the Comic Book Day Reviews. It's been months since I've done one, so in order to catch up, here's a quick list of titles I've been reading that get my Seal of Approval... if that happens to count for anything in the grand scheme of things.

The All-New Atom
New Warriors
Nova
Justice Society of America
Robin
Outsiders
Superman
Blue Beetle
Justice League of America
The Flash
Thunderbolts!

The "big event" books have been a little disappointing for me, due to their terrible cases of tie-in-itis. I'm on a budget, for pity's sakes! I haven't got the money to buy every freaking book on a freaking checklist just to read a freaking story! I'm looking at you World War Hulk, Amazons Attack and Countdown.

Although Countdown is beginning to shed its tie-in-itis and standing alone fairly well. Or maybe I just have a soft spot for Pied Piper & Trickster and The Atom's team of explorers. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

New books that have come out that show a great deal of potential are two of the Annihilation: Conquest titles, Quasar and Star Lord. Also having just come out yesterday was the debut of the always-entertaining Booster Gold series, which promises to be fantastic if the next issues are as good as this first one.

That's all from me for now.
