In JLA/Doom Patrol Special #1, the Young Animal/DC Milk Wars crossover event, Larry Trainor founded DC Comics in a parallel life while fighting the Justice League as Negative Man. This is not the strangest thing to happen in JLA/Doom Patrol by a wide margin. In the issue, Gerard Way, Steve Orlando, ACO, Tamra Bonvillain & Marissa Louise create a delightfully dense and endearing love letter to DC Comics, it’s inherent weirdness, and the profound influence writer Grant Morrison has on the medium.

Looking back on last month’s article, I came to the realization that I tend to add more books to a list than I’m actually able to read and, in may cases, afford. There are only so many hours left at the end of the day to tackle my pull list, and, while they are a passion, comic books are not my only hobby. On top of that, I’ve been reading a lot more “older” stuff lately. This list will be more realistic, conservative towards what I think I’ll actually read. If I get to more, great! I’d love to read every good book out there.
LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?
LOOK NO FURTHER.
HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.Tyler’s Recommendation… East of West #31
“Thirty issues in and East of West is still one of the best books on the shelves. This month, the reunion of Babylon and his father. Under Hickman and Dragotta’s deft hands this Father and Son chapter is sure to be intriguing and beautiful.”
After an almost three year hiatus (the last post came out on 4/30/14), I’ve decided to bring back my column “The Haul.” At its inception, I vowed to write something once a week. Not only did that not happen then, but I will not even pretend to make that claim again today. However, what I can promise is to pop in at least once a month for this new endeavor. When “The Haul” first debuted, it was meant as a place where I could talk about whatever was on my mind that week in the world of comics. Having that freedom was nice, but this next iteration will have better specified boundaries. By dropping a lens over this column, I can provide a clearer focus on what it is readers can expect.
Writers Scott Snyder of All Star Batman and Steve Orlando of Midnighter & Apollo will team with artist Riley Rossmo of Constantine: The Hellblazer for a new Batman/Shadow Crossover being released by DC Comics/Dynamite Comics in April. More details at DC Comics
