    GLC was awesome. One part that was cool but I also hated:
    Mother Mercy getting both a Sinestro ring and Green Lantern ring. I knew a moment like that would happen eventually and it was pretty cool, but I wish it could've lasted for longer than 2 seconds. Could probably get 2 issues out of some alien getting the rings and being all conflicted about which side to join.

    Could've been cooler, s'all I'm saying.

    Avengers:Initiative was also pretty cool.

    In Uncanny
    Cannonball shows up out of nowhere for two panels with no explanation and singlehandedly defeats Magneto and then disappears for the rest of the issue

    At first I was like "That's awesome" but then I realized it just doesn't make sense

    That's what I would do if I was a superhero. Hit people out of nowhere and then escape before I can be involved in the drama.

    Re: Uncanny
    He does explain. He says "Sorry I'm late, I stopped at the Grand Canyon." and he dosen't really "disapear" anymore than Nightcrawler or anyone else does. He just doesn't have any lines afterwards. Lots of characters running around, only so much face time to give.

    He was home in Kentucky, what he was late to was the art exhibit/party thing. He didnt know there was a fight going on until he got there.

    what happened in robin
    Basically, we get some flashbacks to Bruce's isolation ritual in Nanda Parbat (the one that occurred during 52), which mostly consist of Dick and Tim busting criminals together as Tim learns valuable life lessons. These are interspersed with scenes of Tim trying to figure out what's happened to Batman as Spoiler follows him around bitching. Robin offers a briefcase full of money to the Penguin to find Batman before dawn, which sets Spoiler off. "What if they do find Batman?" she asks. "What are you going to do then?" Tim responds with "See if he's all right... I mean, right in the head."

    "And if he's not?"

    Dramatic splash page of Robin standing against the backdrop of Gotham and the bat signal, saying "Then I'm going to take Batman down."

    It was a pretty solid issue all around. I'm pleased.

    do you typically read robin? i did not click on the spoiler, is it worth reading for the RIP tie-in or does not really tie in at all, like the last issue of detective comics?

    It directly, significantly tied into R.I.P. I tend to pick up Robin when new arcs or creative teams start to see if it strikes my fancy.

    Angel taking down a Sentinel by himself. Even if it was off panel, the reveal was fucking rad

    That doesn't sound like it makes sense. Can he turn into Archangel at will now, or something?

    It's left ambiguous, although I do think that is a possibility.

    Thunderbolts was good, may keep that as a trade-wait after the SI tie-in.

    I do not currently read any of the X-Books in issue form, but I'm a huge Brubaker fan. Is issue 500 a good time to jump on board?


    Also, my moment of the week so far was the the end of Robin. However, I haven't read Daredevil yet, and this current arc has been damn good, so I'm expecting this one to be great also.

    500 is pretty much the definition of a jumping on point, it's one huge setup issue for the next couple years of X-Men

    Speaking of Daredevil, when does Lady Bullseye start?

    September, if I remember correctly.
    Is Gage going to be writing Thunderbolts post-SI?

    He should. he should have some ongoing given to him by now. I mean, really, does he have to develop stigmata or rescue a crippled baby orphanage from zombies before they give him his own ongoing?

    Yep, and Gage not only references Ellis's run but his own one-shot issues. Also,
    the last half of the issue is what was shown in Secret Invasion #1 and 3 involving Skrull Captain Marvel.

    I only got the Thunderbolts issue because I started following the Captain Marvel Skrull since his mini and I want some fucking closure with him.

    I really want to read more Hellboy, but I only started with buying the big mclargehuge "library edition" thing of the first two volumes and I don't want to buy the regular paperbacks and have a horrid messy bookshelf of half huge hellboy and half regular hellboy.

    Does anyone know when the next big collection thing is being released?

    There's a really good chance that the Initiative is going to be cancelled, post-SI.
