What I’m Buying (You Should Too)-11/09/2011

Green Lantern #3

Solicit Text-With the entire Sinestro Corps out to kill its founder, the renegade Green Lantern Sinestro finds himself in a position he’s never been in before: on the run.

Geoff Johns continues his epic Hal Jordan/Sinestro team up this week. After a slow first issue the tension and stakes picked up a lot in the second, and this issue promises to show the beginning of Hal and Sinestro’s attempt to eradicate the Sinestro Corps from Korugar. This is such a great twist on the events of the much-lauded Sinestro Corps War. I can’t wait to see what happens.

Demon Knights #3

Solicit Text-Under siege and under fire – quite literally – the hastily assembled Demon Knights find that the villagers they’re trying to protect are ready to turn on them… and that they’re locked behind embattled walls with a demon whose very touch can kill! And if the only human Etrigan gives half a damn about dies of her wounds, then Hell help anyone around him…

I found this book to be spinning its wheels a bit in its second issue. We still don’t know much about the full cast. Demon Knights hit the ground running and hasn’t taken time to breath. From the description of this issue it doesn’t sound like we’re going to get that in this issue, but hopefully we’ll see a little more character development. This still one of the most unique team books in the New 52 and I’m willing to give it some time to find its footing.

Point One #1

Solicit Text-Here are SEVEN all-new stories that set the stage for everything coming your way in 2012 from the biggest names in the comics industry. You CANNOT miss this. Catch a tease of the biggest change to the Marvel Universe in over 35 years!

Well, how is that for hyperbole and sensationalism? This over-sized one shot promises to lay the foundation for the biggest stories in Marvel comics in 2012. I’m a big fan of these types of comics when handled correctly. With seven stories by some of Marvel’s best and brightest I’m sure there’s something I’ll like out of the bunch. I’m most looking forward to  Dave Lapham and Roberto De La Torre’s Age of Apocalypse and Jeff Loeb and Ed McGuiness’ Nova. If you’re looking for a way into Marvel comics, I expect this should fit the bill nicely. Here are five teaser images released by Marvel, so see if anything catches your eye.
