I have attempted to embrace DC's New 52 but I am becoming increasingly disillusioned, I dropped Marvel almost ten years ago so as I gradually rationalise my monthlies the theory is that I can read stuff I actually enjoy. I enjoy Marvel Bronze Age horror so I am going to read Werewolf By Night. This series is nowhere near as good as Tomb of Dracula but well worth a revisit if only for Mike Ploog's art.

You can't beat the classics so it is time to revisit Walt Simonson's Thor. Is it better than Kirby? Only one way to decide so Stan and Jack's Journey Into Mystery/Thor must be devoured.

I am looking forward to 2013, what will you be reading?
