I was picking up some GL during the Sinestro Corps War run, but had to stop in the middle of that to cut the budget back a bit. I've been keeping up with bits and pieces through reviews and online chatter, but I haven't picked up an issue for quite some time now. Everything I've heard makes it sound like this series continues to be amazing, and I'm really tempting to get back into things now. I suppose I could jump in with this Red Lantern special (and the upcoming #36?), but I'm thinking I'll order the Sinestro Corps hardcovers as well to read through that whole thing. Is the Origins arc essential reading to catch up as well? I thought there was some stuff with Atrocitus in there from what I understand, but I was just curious.
I recently streamlined my pull at our local shop (dropping Trinity got rid of four books, so that was helpful - it was boring to me I guess), so I might be able to add another series to the list now. Its funny, I've always been more of a Marvel person - but the DC titles are starting to catch up a bit. Between Batman (and Detective), Action Comics, Nightwing, JLA, and possibly now GL and the upcoming Flash, there's a lot of good stuff out there. I've really been enjoying Action Comics in particular lately, and highly recommend that book as well - best Superman (outside of All-Star) that I've read in a long time.
On the Marvel side of things, I'm still enjoying those books as well. Aside from the whole One More Day changes, I think Amazing Spidey has been pretty good lately. The New Ways to Die arc was entertaining, and it was nice to see the Goblin, Eddie Brock, etc. back in the fold. This week's issue featuring Hammerhead is really fun as well, and I'm excited for where its going. Captain America continues to be great as well, and I've been enjoying Invincible Iron Man as well. Personally, I like Secret Invasion well enough, but I always like when all the heroes are together like that - brings me back to Secret Wars
. I've been reading the Avengers books too, and those are pretty solid. I'm looking forward to this whole "Dark Reign" thing coming up. Ultimate Spidey is consistently good too. Anyways, just really enjoying comics right now, its hard to know where to draw the line with the subscriptions/pull list.
