So as 2013 comes to a close, how did my resolutions work out? As usual with any resolutions I make I did very poorly. I certainly read a lot of comics but not the ones I had planned to read. Silver Age Spider-man? Nope. Black Panther? Nope. Werewolf By Night? Nope. Walt Simonson's Thor? Stan and Jack's Thor? Neither. I did read some Tintin but only the first four books. I would classify this as an almost total failure.

Am I downhearted? Certainly not as I read plenty of good stuff this year along with some absolute garbage from DC's New 52. Currently only The Flash remains from quite an extensive pull list. I thought I would never stop reading Batman, Detective, Superman and Action but the train wreck that is DC editorial have saved me some money.

Very disappointing comics
What did I read? Lots of old DC comics such as House of Secrets, House of Mystery, Our Army at War, Star-Spangled War Stories, Bronze Age Justice League of America and the Brave and the Bold. Will I get around to reading the comics I listed last year? Probably. Will I create a new list for 2014? Certainly.
