Adventure Comics #516: As he's also writing the current volume of Legion of Super Heroes, Paul Levitz is using the primary feature of Adventure to tell the story of the Legion's early years, and this issue is the big ol' exposition from beyond the grave by RJ Brande, who funded the LSH at the very beginning. Brainiac 5 is bored and snarky, Superboy is fascinated. Backup feature is the beginning of an Atom story - promising, but I don't know the character all that well.

Invincible Iron Man #28: Matt Fraction's run with this title has been nothing short of spectacular - he gets Tony Stark and his world. Tony and a handful of partners are putting a new company together, while IM and War Machine deal with the actions of Justin Hammer's widow and daughter. The Hammer Girls have their own powered armor operative, and they're out to prove its superiority.

Iron Man: Legacy #4: Legacy's got its own continuity going, and it's a lot of fun for this longtime IM fan. So far, this series has seen IM take on ethnicity-based civil war, deal with Doctor Doom, and now he's facing incarnations of three Cold War enemies - Radioactive Man, Crimson Dynamo, and Titanium Man. Writing's a little rougher than Invincible, but still good.

JSA All-Stars #8: I love the Justice Society of America and its history and place in the DC Universe, and I really want to like this title more than I do, but it's just not holding together for me.

Justice League of America #46: Part of the Brightest Day event, and the opening issue of a 5-part JLA/JSA crossover. Looking forward to how this unfolds, as the final page of the issue got my dander up.

The above may be conjecture, deliberate paraphrase, or outright bullshit.

I'll miss Toyfare more.  Just as irrelevant, but far more funny.

Wondering where Marvel plans to go with the whole Fantastic Four Shake-Up? Wonder no more (SPOILERS).

So, as a nerd who had been into and out of collecting comic books for decades now, any recommendations on series worth a darn?

I've gotten the recent Secret Avengers issues with Shang-Chi (he's a fave of mine - I wish to Christ they'd release the old Moench/Gulacy series in a collected form sometime), but its been around 5 years since I kept up with anything for more than an issue or two.

I was listening to a podcast where they talked about that and explained at least one way they whole situation could have been avoided fairly easily. Of course, that wouldn't have led to the TV news talking about the event, and a subsequest increase in sales. Funny that.

i could recommend a ton of stuff i used to work as the manager of my lcs for the past 10 years it really depends on what kind of stuff you like to read, supers, crime drama, sci fi, fantasy, etc, or tell me some of the tv shows you really enjoy and i can probably find something in that genre.

i would love to see a collection of that master of kung fu stuff that was great, but with marvel unwilling to pay the sax rohmer estate royalties again to use the names of fu manchu and the rest, we are out of luck in seeing a collection. luckly at the end of last year i was able to get the last 3 books i needed to collect a full run of that series. now i just need some extra dollars to send them away and have bound into a nice collection.
