Pip's Pick Ups - 23 February 2011

Kind of a slow week for comics. Just three new books yesterday. After reading some reviews, I regret not buying the new Deadpool. Anyway, here's what I picked up:

Captain America #615
Detective Comics #874
Uncanny X-Men #533


  1. As you are a regular Detective Comics guy I recommend picking up, and possibly devoting a post to, the Batman/Reaper/Joe Chill Year Two storyline in Detective Comics #575-578 if you don't have it yet. The artwork is by McFarlane before he got too popular, and I'm a big fan of the renditions of Batman's cape in these issues - it seems to have a life force of its own as it grows exponentially. The series is especially interesting for Batman's packing of heat - the heat that killed his parents I believe. Check it out.

  2. It's funny you mention that. I just finished reading it the other night. I might just have to do a post on it.
