How were the Green Lantern/Green Arrow stories?
I've heard a lot of good things, but haven't been able to track them down.

They were pretty neat. I can't wait till I get to the issue where Ollie finds out Roy's on drugs.

Oh wow. That's supposed to be a classic.

I'v just been reading through Final Crisis lately before I start up Batman & Robin.

Just finished reading this:



I skimmed through that when I worked for a bookstore. It looks like a fun title! I like the costume, is it an alternate in any video games?

While im travelling ive been re-reading Transmetropolitanon my phone in down times (waiting for trains, on buses, in restaurants etc.) Its good, but I dont like it as much as I wanted to. It often feels a bit heavy handed and overly grimdark sometimes. Theres also a lot of issues that just feel like filler, sure they give good fleshing out to the world, but they also seem very seperated from the story.

Funny enough I was reading Crisis on Infinite Earths the other day. I never read it. I got like half way so far... I think the graphic novel is 300 sum pages.

Its sloooowowww and the issue with the concept is you have to follow DC heroes you might not give a shit about.

I'll usually buy comics monthly, but wait until the story arc's done before I actually read them. With all the X-Men arcs ending around the same time, leading into Avengers vs. X-men, I've had a good chunk of X-Men stuff to read recently.
It seems like all the best books landed on Wolverine's side of the Schism, with X-Factor and Wolverine and the X-Men leading the bunch.

Recently finished some good Green Lantern stories:



One thing that really sucked though was that the copy I borrowed from the library had two pages ripped out during the confrontation with the Red Lanterns on Ysmault. I think one particular moment I missed was the Sinestro Corps' arrival.



This holds up pretty well seeing how issues that this series covers still have a bit of relevance today.



And I've also read the first four Scott Pilgrim issues. The film is pretty accurate even with some story elements it cut out.
