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?
Six months in to the New 52 and it was a mixed bag this month just like the previous one.
ALL-STAR WESTERN was still damn good, with Palmiotti and Gray joined by the excellent Moritat telling neat, well-paced stories about Jonah Hex. Probably the most enjoyable title I was getting around this time. Elsewhere in DC, FRANKENSTEIN: AGENT OF SHADE, DEMON KNIGHTS, and even VOODOO were still enjoyable, but outside of the big titles I was getting – GREEN LANTERN and JUSTICE LEAGUE – cracks were beginning to show.
CAPTAIN ATOM, BLUE BEETLE, FIRESTORM, TEEN TITANS, and JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL were all floundering under the weight of the new takes on the characters.
Outside of DC, THE BOYS was still rolling along, FATALE was living up to the promise it showed in the previous month, and PUNISHER: MAX came to an end with the death of the Punisher.
