I don't know about the rest of you, but I've got to get through the work day before I can snag my new comics. Makes those late comics all the later. This seems to be a pretty big week for me, too. Brightest Day, Doom Patrol, Thor the Mighty Avenger, Hawkeye & Mockingbird. Good stuff to look forward to in the sweltering July heat.
When I was a kid, we lived in a colonial and didn't have air, so we would use box fans to cool down. More than a few summer days and evenings were spent laying on the floor (or the bed, depending on just how late it was or how obnoxious my brother was being) reading comics. I would have to hold the pages down against the breeze from the fan, but it was part of the experience for me.
Some of these books look like summer reading to me, especially this week's DP.
That said, here's a link to Newsarama's sneak peek at Doom Patrol #12.
Looks like Ron Randall's onboard for a large chunk of the art again. Fair warning, though, there appears to be a surprise reveal in this preview. Good stuff. C'mon 5:00!! Hurry up!
Stop by and let me know what you think about the latest issue. Also feel free to share your tips for keeping cool while reading.
Happy 100th to "Waiting For Doom"!
