Oh, hey, nobody's made this yet.

My moment of the week is definitely X-Men Legacy, where Karla gets a bit of what she deserves.

    It was a small week for me, and I've only read one book so far, but I enjoyed the one that I've read.

    Batman: Streets of Gotham #3 was it:
    Spoiler:

    And Superman: Blackest Night #1 was very good. I wasn't going to pick it up until I saw Robinson was writing it. But I swear to God if they even think about killing Krypto during this event and make him Cujo (the lawyer) I am going hit Didio with a boxing glove arrow.

    Fucking hell that is some terrible art. Streets of Gotham, that plot about taking heroes from their important duties to babysit because Dick won't get the job done was bad but I really like the Zsasz part though he kinda looks like Mr Freeze now. Pre-accident obviously.

    ...it's in the shape of a giant c**k.

    It was more a threat to Hush to know they're out there to keep him in line, I doubt they'll be babysitting him all the time. Zatanna could do it alone with one of her spells which would give Dini an excuse to have her show up all the time.

    You don't like Nguyen's art? He uses a minimalist style that I actually really like. His long run on Detective Comics was great.

    Your "goodometer" seems to be broken because that art isn't bad at all.

    I'm talking about the Superman comic. Look at his waist in that last panel and his face in the last 2. Or his arm for that matter. Jesus.

    Streets of Gotham made me like Damien though, he knows what he needs to do, fecking Dick ruined it.

    What

    To call something way in advance and everyone says "nuh uh" but then you're right

    Say for example Iron Fists dying at 33

    (I still don't know where I read that, and I haven't been able to find it again)

    Anyway, new Hellblazer was a fucking heartbreaker and Ian Rankin's Hellblazer graphic novel (literally, it's a little hardcover book about the same size as a regular book) was fucking awesome

    John gets called in when a haunted house reality shows seems to be really haunted and ends up as a contestant so he can diagnose it from the inside

    DD#500's main story was ok, and has some fun with Master Izo, but the Ann Nocenti/David Aja story was golden. Aja's art was great, and captured that emphasis on the normal person seeing a fight between a superhero and villain.

    She totally needs to come back to Marvel to write something. A Foggy Nelson mini or something.

    BN: Batman was quite good. It was written by Tomasi and I highly recommend it.

    BN: Superman was okay, but Robinson writes a pretty weak Smallville. His characters were all so overtly hickish that it was almost commical. The first few pages were hard to read. It gets better towards the end of the book when the action shifts away from the town.

    Yeah, that confused me too.

    Also, the woman "Molly" did not fit the setting at all. Like, at all. At first I thought it was Lois due to her hotness. But no, it was just some random hot bitch from Smallville.

    The best part about DD 500 was the reprinting of #191 by Frank Miller. That has got to be my favorite single issue of any comic.
