New Comics Wednesday

Here's the new comics I got yesterday (not a lot, it seems to be a slow week):

Betty and Veronica Double Digest Magazine #151 -- Yep, this is the one with the "more realistic" artwork.  After reading it, I'm actually more bothered by the "more realistic" story, which means they removed all the humor and replaced it with low-grade soap opera.  I know, soap opera is what they are going for, but it could use a little humor to keep it from being so dry...

Countdown #51 --  I liked 52, so I thought I'd give this a chance.  It didn't immediately grab me like 52 did, but I'm intrigued enough to check out the next issue.  And who knew Darkseid plays HeroClix?

Grimm Fairy Tales: Return to Wonderland #0 --  A 99¢ preview of an upcoming series.  There's been a few series lately to take a darker, grittier look at Lewis Carroll's Wonderland, and this is another one.  There's not really enough to judge if it will be any good -- the preview is all hints and teases and no Wonderland characters are seen at all, just an adult, suicidal Alice and her goth daughter Calie, who is apparently the star of this new version...

Madame Mirage First Look --  Another 99¢ preview comic, this time for a "super-heroes in a dystopian future" story by Paul Dini (also the writer of Countdown this week).  It doesn't seem that promising either, but I've liked Dini's previous comics about female heroes (Jingle Belle, Ida Red, etc.) so I might give this a chance

This week's cheap back issue:
Josie #33 (April 1968) -- The store didn't have any Josies after #43, so now I'm traveling backward in time.  There's no Clyde Didit in this one, but there's plenty of hippies anyway...
