Below is a list of the books…book I picked up this week.

  • Action Comics #972

The last week of the month is usually the lightest in terms of Superman books, so it isn’t that much of a surprise that the only physical comic I picked up at the shop this week is Action Comics.  Men of Steel  has been a great story arc so I am looking forward to reading this issue and reviewing for the Superman Homepage.  I did order a Superman related collected edition in the form of the over sized deluxe hardcover Legion of Super-Heroes: The Curse to go along with the The Great Darkness Saga I bought last week and that came in the post on Friday, so I have roughly two years of Legion stories to read!

Digital Books

Comixology ran an Infinite Crisis sale (which expires Monday), so I picked up a few Superman related books at a buck a piece.  These include:

  • Action Comics (1938) #s 826 and 829
  • Adventures of Superman (1939) #639 – Available of the first time digitally
  • Superman (1987) #s 216, 218-220
  • Wonder Woman (1987) #s 219 and 220

For some reason Adventures of Superman #642 wasn’t part of the sale, which is weird because it is part of the Sacrifice story arc.  I picked it up even though it wasn’t on  sale because…I’m me and that’s how I roll.

Other Superman related digital books that are available for the first time include:

  • Action Comics (1938) #s 743 and 744
  • Adventures of Superman (1939) #s 556 and 557
  • DC Comics Presents (1978) #s 44-46
  • Superman (1987) #s 133 and 134
  • Superman: The Man of Steel (1991) #s 77 and 78

I am not picking up the DC Comics Presents issues just yet but I will get there at some point.  Otherwise, I picked up the rest of these books and I was amused to see that they’ve gotten to The Millennium Giants part of the Electric Blue era.  Still no sign of the Superman Red/Superman Blue special, so I have to shoot them a message to see if I can get anything going on that.

Despite the lack of that special I continue to be amazed and delighted that more of the Post Crisis era is available digitally.
