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?
Month three of the New 52 and things were still going okay on the whole. Despite a bumpy start, VOODOO was starting to pick up and it was nice seeing Ron Marx writing Kyle Rayner again. The series hadn’t won many fans over portraying the only woman of colour to have her own series in the New 52 as a stripper back in issue #1, but the hidden powers/Daemonite plot line was starting to warm up and I was enjoying it.
Elsewhere, FRANKENSTEIN and ALL-STAR WESTERN continued to be standouts of the non-typical series DC were trying here, while GREEN LANTERN and JUSTICE LEAGUE were ticking along nicely.
18 issues from DC this month, 3 from Dynamite (THE BOYS and a couple of the spin-offs from it), and a single PUNISHER: MAX from Marvel.

Still buying Grifter and Resurrection Man, and this would be the last issue of Suicide Squad I’d get. The main thing I note from my review of the issue is Deadshot tried to get some groceries in his civilian i.d. to lay low, but let Harley Quinn – chalk-white, nutty as a fruitcake Harley – come with him. Very low-profile, Floyd.
From Marvel, third issue of Annihilators: Earthfall, second issues of Legion of Monsters (good) and Avengers Solo (not good). Last issue of Avengers Academy I bought, first issue of a Villains for Hire mini-series following up from Abnett and Lanning’s recently concluded Heroes for Hire. The concept is kind of interesting – Misty Knight secretly runs a team of villains to try and track down the Purple Man, who has his own team of villains pulling jobs for him – but Renato Arlem’s art is not great for action sequences.
Darkwing Duck and two issues of Atomic Robo: The Ghost of Station X round out stuff from other publishers. It looks like I couldn’t track down that month’s Daredevil or Angel & Faith initially.
Didn’t Deadshot and Harley have a thing going during that run of SUICIDE SQUAD? I picked up the trades some time later but it’s been a few years since I read them.
I’m pretty sure issue 3 is the one where they have a quick screw in the bathroom, which Deadshot insists was a one-time deal. Beyond that, I don’t know.
