I didn't see this so here we go.

I have one real moment of the week. Got to see Scott Pilgrim early and it was real good.

Book wise Green Lantern. Larfleeze.

    Insanely horrible maybe.

    Was the point to fit in as many clichés as possible? Fade to blacks, bad fighting sound effects, a slow simple beat in the beginning, and way too much slow-motion?

    Seriously, someone please count how many times they fade to black in that thing.

    Its not a trailer. It's 4 minutes of footage edited together for comic-con. Those things have ALWAYS looked like they were edited with a hatchet.

    The footage which was seen was great though. That was also my MotW. I don't think we really saw him flying or using any weather control of anything though, hopefully that kind of stuff is still in the movie. I'd guess the latter definately is.

    Also the Destroyer. How fucking cool is that?

    Dude you have to fade to black in those things. It means serious business.

    Don't forget the exploding cars. The teaser seemed hellbent on communicating this.

    JLA #47:
    Spoiler:

    And Detective Comics #867 was good as well, a bit cautious because Hine's work is 50/50 with me, but it was Scott McDaniel with bitchin' art and it read like Dick's version of The Dark Knight film
    Spoiler:

    And Generations Lost #6:

    It makes me sad to think of Power Girl's lovely form go all old and nasty like that. Which is a horrbly misogynistic thought but I can't help it.

    EDIT: Also I expect that I will be retroactively changing my MotW to Thor: The Mighty Avenger because if it is nearly as good as issue one it will be great.

    My MotW is getting my Fraction Invincible Iron Man mini-omnibus from Amazon. Holy crap what a nice collection, and I'm not just talking about the content, but the whole hardcover is expertly put together.

    Wasn't sure where to ask this, so into a gone in a week thread it goes!
    What happened to Spine Art? I remember way back when , altho trades were much less consistent, if you collceted the trades of a certain thing, the Spines when on the shelf would form a Picture, or at least some pattern art, nowadays the closest is alternating spine color.
    I hope I'm wrong and that someone can suggest a cool set of trades I can spineart my shelf with ( preferably with a good story too, but seriously ready to grab something just on spine art , cause have a spot it would fit really well )

    you have to buy so many of the just awful tie ins though so i wouldn't recommend it at all.

    Yeah the only House of M tie-ins worth reading are the Incredible Hulk one and the World of M compliation trade which has the Pulse and Captain America one-shots.

    Not completely finished with my stack, but so far my MotW is from Flash #4. The aerial helicopter rescue was pretty frickin' sweet. Don't have a scan available but maybe someone else can supply one.

    Francis Manapul's art is just so perfect for this book. He really knows how to capture motion in his drawings.

    Flash reboot has been the tits. People like to hate Johns, but he and Manapul have been knocking Flash out of the park.

    I do not like to hate Johns

    Johns has done a bunch of things I enjoyed

    But he, along with Bendis, have this problem that the more integral they become to the DC and Marvel Universes, the quality of their books gets lower and lower and they fall into comfortable tropes and become almost parodies of themselves.
