So I’ve made a couple of changes to my pull list since my last NCBD post. I’ve decided to remove a few titles either due to cost or loss of interest. They also take up a lot of space so I have to be more picky about the titles that I buy! That doesn’t mean that I won’t try and get some of the trade backs later on for some of them!
I’ve taken the following off my pull list recently:
- Ms Marvel
- Spider Gwen
- Harley Quinn
- Suicide Squad
- Black Canary
Those are a few off the top of my head. For some it was definetly the interest went down for me. Marvel’s Civil War 2 just didn’t peak my interest and Ms Marvel was taken off for that reason. I think a few people felt the same as me. I also wasn’t as excited for some new issues like I used to be so I haven’t even read some of the newer issues I bought. Harley Quinn and Suicide Squad didn’t excite me enough to keep buying the issues. They were good though so I hope to get the trades eventually. Sherlock was the same as the tv show and I didn’t even realise it was on my pull list till I was charged for issue 3. I had asked for the first two issues and didn’t plan on getting more.
So here are some of the recent issues that I’ve got! I’ve changed my pull list to monthly so I’m hoping to keep on top of this post in the future at the end of every month!
I’d love to know what you’re currently reading below. Whether it’s a new issue or something older.
Okay! So first up are some of the most recent issues that I got in the mail. Jem and the holograms was a comic that I was always really excited about. It was so good! Now here’s the but. For me one of the things that drew me to this series was the artwork. And it’s changed on this issue. Not for good at least in my opinion. It’s way too different and it’s not a style I like. I’m hoping it’ll read just as well and I might try one more issue but sadly I think I may have to pull Jem off my pull list. Which is something I never thought that I would do. Does anyone else feel the same?
Snotgirl! Oh my god. I adore this comic so much. The art is super cute and the story is really well written so far. It’s a keeper for me! I might do a review on it soon.
New Batgirl! I don’t seem to have recieved the new Batgirl and the Birds of Prey yet but I hope it’ll arrive soon. I am really enjoying the new Batgirl and I’m really interested in seeing where this series takes her.
I got the new Gotham Academy mostly to see what it was like. I collected the orginal issues and while I loved it I did get a bit bored with it. I didn’t include it in the issues that I wanted to get for Rebirth but I’m interested to seeing what this new issue is like. I will definitely still get the trade.
And my Harley Quinn and Suicide Squad issues! I did really enjoy these but twice a month is too much for me right now. While DC made their comics cheaper they were overall more expensive with the bi monthly shipping. It definitely made me really picky with what I was going to get from Rebirth.
Now time for some older issues that I didn’t write a post for! If you ever want to keep more up to date with what I buy check out my instagram as I post there a lot!
I love Goldie Vance so much. As a fan of detective/mystery books and shows this comic for me hits that genre on the nail! It’s very Nancy Drew! I’m so happy that they decided to give this comic a full run as it was originally only 4 issues. The artwork was one of the other reasons that I decided to get it and it’s perfect issue after issue!
Fables is one of my favourite comics (that I definitely plan on finishing!) so hearing there was more of it coming out I had to get this issue. I’m hoping to read it when I go home for my reading week as I didn’t get a chance to before I came up to Belfast.
These two comics are 100 per cent recommended by me. The stories are different and so interesting. The Beauty is about a STD that can make you beautiful while Paper Girls is set in the 1980s and centres around a group of girls working as paper girls when aliens attack. They both have great art and every issue has me wanting more.
And last but certainly not least Harley Quinn! I adore the art in this and while it’s no longer on my pull list it’s definitely a trade back that I will be getting.
I also ordered a funko pop that I’ve been so eager to add to my collection!
She’s so cute! Minako is my favourite sailor scout and I’m so happy to have her! The Sailor Moon pops are the cutest! I’m hoping to get Jupiter next!
I’m also really happy to report that I have a Batgirl on the way too.
Her and Batgirl were definitely the highest on my wishlist so I’m super excited to be able to finally own them both!
