    I picked up DC Comics Presents #97 at the LCS because I had to see this Bizarro scene, it is a thing of beauty:

    Sandman is so damn good

    Sandman is pretty great. I really need to buy all the books, as I read them through the public library. Then the Omnibuses started to come out, and I got all wishy-washy on what format I wanted it in.

    Anyhow, here's a bit from Wolverine #41, by Stuart Moore and C.P. Smith. Wolverine has been dispatched to a small, African nation, in the midst of a coup, with orders to retrieve the president's infant daughter. He proceeds to go all Lone Wolf and Cub, alternately strapping the girl to his back and chest, and sneaking his way towards the border.

    Naturally, his luck runs out, within spitting distance of his objective.
    Spoiler:

    The issue's basically a done-in-one action movie, starring Wolverine, and I think it works. A large part of that, is that it takes Wolverine out of his comfort zone, while remaining true to his character. His invulnerability, healing factor, and brawling ability, mean absolutely nothing, when he has a baby strapped to him.

    And it puts him, a guy with a reputation for befriending teenagers, in a situation where he might actually have to fight child soldiers.

    It's by no means revolutionary, but it's a solid one-shot, with a neat premise. Stuart Moore's one of those writers that I feel really deserves a shot at a big title, after doing great work on Firestorm, as well as his Eathlight manga, for TokyoPop. And C.P. Smith's art has just the right combination of photo-realistic grit, and real storytelling ability. He also does this thing I love with Wolverine's eyes, where they're depicted as bright white, with a lot of little wrinkles around them, that gives him a really expressive quality.

    There's something about the imagery of a dude bristling with arrows, that just looks really cool.

    Here's something from Rokkin #3. Last issue saw Arness escaping from slavery, discovering his goddess-granted ability to turn to stone, getting drunk, picking a fight with an entire pub, forgetting his magic word, and being saved by a mysterious swordswoman.

    This issue opens with two two dramatically outnumbered, until Arness' savior reveals she also has a bit of magic up her sleeve; a sword that allows her to create duplicates of herself.

    It's seriously everything I like in fantasy comics. I wish it would have had a much longer run.

    Also, if anyone wants to check it out for themselves, but can't find it , MyComicShop.com has them all in stock, for under two bucks a pop.

    She's handled much better in the DCAU than in regular comics I think. I haven't heard much about any of the new stuff.

    But yeah, five years ago if you asked me to list anything interesting about WW I would have said, "She got an invisible jet? ... I think"

    The adventures of sexy Batman is pretty great too. She should do some Superman stuff one of these days.

    A vampire is already undead, as is a zombie. A combination of the two would cancel each other out, making it alive, and therefore exceptionally easy to kill.

    I think you may be getting your undead math mixed up here.
    I'm pretty sure that combining zombieism and vampirism make some kind of super-undead, thus even more difficult to kill. I mean, it'd end up possessing both the zombies noted immunity to garlic and silver and the vampires resistance to getting shot in the brain.
