Seriously. Even reading it as one trade, after the first part, I felt like I had missed something with the jump.

Seems like DC is reviving Fables for some 20th anniversary projects, including a Batman crossover.

From IGN: It's been almost 20 years since DC Comics first launched Fables, and the publisher is celebrating that milestone with several new Fables projects written by creator Bill Willingham. One of them even involves a Batman crossover.

Willingham is making his return to DC later this year to pen Batman vs. Bigby! A Wolf in Gotham. This six-issue mystery noir will be published under the DC Black Label imprint. The creative team also includes artist Brian Level, inker Jay Leisten and colorist Lee Loughridge.

Sounds like it could be pretty cool!

I've been in a bit of a comic rut. I haven't followed the X-Men into the Dawn of X stuff yet, mainly due to hesitancy but also because I've lost the ability to read monthly comics outside of a trade format! Whenever I'm adrift with the X-Men, most of comic reading takes a hit.

I've been trying to keep up with James Tynion IV's Batman and, to a lesser extent, Peter Tomasi's Detective Comics. But, Tomasi's is ROUGH reading. I might kind of hate it.

I did go through a bunch of Jason Aaron's Thor run. The God of Thunder stuff was great but sort of petered out. But then the Goddess of Thunder series was great and had some of the best art I've ever seen in a consistent series like that. I didn't love the ending as much as everyone on Goodreads seems to, but I think it's a ridiculously strong run. I look forward to see that version of the character pop up in the other series I need to catch up on.

Yeah I've been in and out of stuff lately too, struggling to commit to anything. I'm slowly making my way through the gorgeous hardback of Monsters by Barry Windsor Smith, which is truly excellent so far. I've also started Lost Girls by Alan Moore, which is, erm, well, it's basically porn. :o

Yeah, "commit" is the right word. I've got plenty to read and choose from, but nothing I'm locked in for. I'll probably start the Totally Awesome Hulk series, along with Ms. Marvel. Plus, I could start reading Spider-Man Worldwide anytime. Basically, aside from the X-Men, my Marvel reading is pretty much backed up to right before Secret Wars.
