Man-o-man. That was some good reading! I got Modern Masters first, so I read that right off the bat. The whole interview with Kevin was really inspiring, and it really helped me develop some more as a (would-be) artist. It was spectacularly awesome to see all of his work as he progressed through the industry, and then all of his unreleased stuff. There were sketches of Thor and Superman arm-wrestling, Vision fighting Martian Manhunter, and my favorite was another take on the first JLI cover, but instead of the League, it had characters like Hellboy, Black Bolt, Animal Man, Dream, Daredevil, Namor, etc... All great stuff.
I then proceeded to read Doom Patrol, which I previously knew nothing about, and am now dying to read the next volume. I really wish there was a team like that in the DCU right now, because just seeing all these absolutely insane people tackling absolutely insane situations is great.
After that, I re-read JL: A New Beginning, since I had already owned it before. Of course, it's still awesome. Much love for JLI team members and the Gffen+DeMatteis+Maguire team. I only wish that they'd collected more of the series.
And on to Animal Man: Holy crap. I'd read the first volume before, and now finishing the series, I'm completely blown away. That easily has to make it into my top-5 comic-reading experiences. Morrison was too good for words, and I can't wait to see what he's doing with Buddy now on 52. God. That was an amazing read. Highly recommended to anybody.
