I've been neglecting my poor blog lately. I didn't get any comics last week, and only two this week, including the last issue of R.E.B.E.L.S. My pull list has really dwindled and there seems less and less to be excited about in the comics world. I wasn't that thrilled with how Brightest Day panned out, so color me less than excited for Flashpoint. (Even though the promise of seeing DC's superheroes through time and especially, the past is somewhat tempting.) But the idea of trying to get a handle on a massive storyline spanning dozens (?) of books seems daunting and stressful, not fun, to me.
Even more fitting is that Smallville wrapped up with a rather lukewarm finale. I tried really hard to like that show, and there were a handful of episodes that did truly send me into a comic-induced giddy-fest, but the finale (and its preceding two episodes) just didn't do it for me. It was written more as a love letter to long-time fans, so most of the sentiment sailed farther over my head than Clark Kent finally figuring out how to fly higher than a 747. Lame simile, I know.
Also, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which was I show I initially disliked but now have come around to, has been cancelled. I do not know the fate of Young Justice (is it coming back for a second season?) and the Wonder Woman pilot has been passed over.
So it seems as though I am about to embark on a journal into a comics desert for the foreseeable future.
Does anyone have any giddy-fyingly good comics prospects that you're excited to hear about?
