100 Issues Ago January 2011

I came across this “100 Issues Ago” panel in an old JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and thought I’d tidy it up and re-purpose it. If one month = one issue, what was I reading 100 Issues Ago?

I featured DC UNIVERSE: LEGACIES in a 100 Issues Ago post a couple of months back – it was a good series, basically running through some of the big events of DC’s history in order, showing them from the point of view of a Metropolis policeman and his family. This issue focused on the fall of Batman when Bane broke his back, as well as the death of Superman who was killed by Doomsday.

This series is bittersweet in hindsight as it finishes with #10 and, just a couple of months later, everything it described is wiped away with the arrival of the New 52.

  1. Still buying the Steph Brown Batgirl series, Secret Six, and REBELS. The Batman Beyond mini-series spawned a Batman Beyond ongoing. Unfortunately, I still don’t think Ryan Benjamin was a great choice as artist. I also bought an issue of Paul Cornell’s Action Comics, I think because it was doing a crossover with Secret Six. As far as buying new stuff from DC, we’re at the high point. 2010 and 2011 were the years I bought the most stuff. New 52 put them in a steadily increasing downward spiral.

    Marvel is down to Avengers Academy and Heroes for Hire, plus a She-Hulks mini-series that was pretty good, and an epilogue to Thanos Imperative. The only other book would be the Darkwing Duck ongoing from Boom!, which was my favorite ongoing series in 2010.


    1. I know Ryan Benjamin from his work on GHOST – all ridiculously long legs, tiny waists and bolt on boobs. Didn’t help that series, either. And same here as far as DC content; after 2011 and the New 52, the amount I bought from DC slowly decreased. As we’ll see, I tried several of the New 52 titles (things like FRANKENSTEIN, AGENT OF SHADE and DEMON KNIGHTS) but they didn’t last.
