I feel like doing the same thing with my issue. the goblin issues were awesome but having Ramos back on that book for the end was very depressing.

Also, I will be editing this weeks comic recommendations tonight... starring... me. Be prepared for the terribleness.
Alan Moore's Swamp Thing is brilliant, especially the origin reveal.
Another one I like is Peter David's run on the Hulk. That's one of my favorite arcs of any comic, the one where Banner finally resolves his multiple personality issues and gains full control over his hero-monster form. Professor Hulk was the best thing ever. Still can't believe they went back to him being a tard.
I know right? Dale Keown is a genius. His pencils are always so clean and precise.
Read around a bit after posting and realized the arc wraps up next month -- now I'm just hoping the conclusion won't be a rewrite of Face/Off. My lack of faith in current comics is disturbing lol
Scott Snyder Batman is actually better than I expected, the first of the new 52 relaunch was a drag for me, didn't like it, but once I got into issue 2, oh man that was some cool stuff on it.
The whole Joker face thing is being awesome, but I'm not sure if the face will really have an impact on something, sure it creates amazing disturbing moments, but I don't see it has much more than that. Also, Batman 13 was the best book of this run so far
This interview makes it sound like the Joker is going to take Batman's face.
And here's the cover.I think the great thing about what's coming up is that we're just getting started. Issue #13 was just The Joker saying, "I'm back, and I have a plan." And issue #14 was him saying, "Here's the beginning of my plan. Here's me telling you that I know who all of you are, and I'm going to bring you down one by one. In fact, I'm going to present you to Batman, and Batman is going to be the one that kills you in three days from now."
And I would just say that The Joker has already said that he's planning something of a celebration at some point. So I can promise you that it's going to be the craziest, most twisted thing we could possibly do in this book.
So I'm really excited. I just finished it, actually. I just finished #17. It has my favorite ending that I've ever done. So I'm really, really excited about it.
I so hope I'm wrong about that. Nobody wants the writer of Batman to rip off a Nic Cage movie.
I'm sure that's just a cover being a cover.
"And issue #14 was him saying, "Here's the beginning of my plan. Here's me telling you that I know who all of you are, and I'm going to bring you down one by one. In fact, I'm going to present you to Batman, and Batman is going to be the one that kills you in three days from now."
What Joker is doing is attacking Batman by attacking the people Batman cares about. He is saying that Batman is the cause of the deaths of the Bat-Family that he hopes to achieve. He has the idea that the Batman should not have the friends to support him, he liked Batman better when Batman was just a single guy, and wants Batman back to what he was.
I'm looking forward to what he does with the rest of the storyline, and I don't believe he is going to Face-off Batman, not literally at least
I've been reading Swamp Thing and it's awesome, though I'm liking Animal Man more, they are connected, since they share a story arc and build up to the Rot World in both books since the first issue
Any of you knuckleheads have goodreads accounts? If so, send me a friend request I have the same name and avatar.
Just added, I don't add any comics/graphic novels there though, just regular books
I have my good reads but I rarely get to put comics on there. if only because I've been reading mostly single issues.
