What the title said, but only choice bits, and I'm not even going to mention the great ending or the other cool thing that happened, pick it up because the book is a rockin' and wants you to come knockin' so you can be bippin' and boppin' while your heads a noddin':

edit: what the hell, the ending:

Kyle comes back to life as the Star Sapphire who was with Kryb lets Natu's heart merge or something with Kyle, so they are fused in love or something (it's a good explanation but I'm not posting the scans), and Mogo arrives to help out, to which Kilowog replies "I guess Mogo does socialize" hahahaha suck it Moore everyone's stealing your shit right FACE!

    And Batman: Streets of Gotham #7 was a good read, but it gets disturbing toward the end, and if Dini doesn't let what's due actually happen, it's just a case of being excessively gory:

    First, a nice page of light heartedness:

    bsg7a.jpg

    Then we have Humpty stealing toys to give to broken children:

    bsg7b.jpg

    Humpty is actually finding them in the river, and brings them to the orphanage to fix them by giving them fixed toys

    bsg7c.jpg

    bsg7d.jpg

    What is actually happening is Zsaz is running a kid slave ring where they fight to the death, and he dumps the bodies into the river, which is what Humpty is finding.


    Now, if Zsaz doesn't die by the end of this, either by Damien just snapping and killing him, or by that big guy who has the brass knuckles, it just makes Gotham way too defeatist to even try and be a "regular" city if everything is this corrupt and violent. Batman writers need to realize you can't keep doing this without breaking the suspension of disbelief for the reader. I'm hoping we see more of what Morrison wants to do, where Gotham is a big great city so you put up with the villains, but it's not showing up yet.

    Man, Damien was a total asshole in that last panel.
    "You get better stuff if you're a real son."

    Ass.

    I love him. I totally still have no idea what the hell he is in terms of storylines or whatnot, but he's awesome.

    You tell him, little guy, you make fun of that goddamn orphan.

    His arguement falls apart when you realise getting a hydrofoil or a private island pales in comparison to getting to be the Batman and the tail that includes.

    What's not to like? You have a smarmy billionaire playboy who is a total asshole dickweed, yet completely lovable at the same time. He flies around in a high-tech suit of armor and fights badguys.

    My moment of the week was figuring out what Incorruptible was all about. (Hey, I see what you did there, Mark Waid.) And then impulse-buying it based on this cover:

    Also, X Force:
    Eli being a fuckup again was pretty rad. Though the rest of the issue was pretty boring.

    Okay. Just started reading my stack, but X-Factor is already in the running.
    Madrox: Everybody else was filled with questions:
    Where had I been?
    How did I come back?
    Did I know about Rictor and Shatterstar?
    That last one, I don't get. Did anyone not know about Rictor and Shatterstar?

    Looking at those GLC scans I have 2 thoughts. First is "FUCK YEAH" and the second is why do most of the Black Lanterns look like they are doing Lobo Cosplay with their faces.

    Something weirdis happening because Anti-Venom: New Ways to Die is my MOTW, good art, Anti_Venom actually seems cool and his interaction with the punisher is excellent.

    Theres noone guarding the gate anymore.
    All dead?

    GLC was indeed awesome. My MOTW, though, goes to X-Factor, with Shatterstar knocking the Thing out of the Baxter Building, then announcing to the crowd:

    "ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!?"

    That made me laugh.

    And Fables #91, good ending that lampshades the recent arc:
    Bufkin's plan works out, but he can't hold the Vorpal Sword that well because he's a small monkey.

    In re death:
    it's pretty explicit from the very page that she's gone. Vorpal Blade, and whatnot

    I still don't like
    how Marvel have retconned away Steve's death and then screwed up bringing him back,
    but Cap Reborn was actually pretty good this week. Also Daredevil continues to rock the house, and I'm digging Doctor Voodoo as well.

    Atlas and Dark Avengers are the best things Marvel has done in a long time.

    And I still don't understand how the hell Headsman or Headhunter or whatever hes called got into the Thunderbolts. Guy cannot do ANYTHING right.

    Ghost stopped Norman from killing him off in an "Accident". Norman now can't decide what to do with him and probably is just apathetic. If Headsman has survived thsi long maybe he's useful. He's the Swordsman of the team. There to absorb beat downs of epic proportions.

    that seems to be more Paladin's role on the team

    did anyone read Ultimate Armor Wars this week?

    long story short, Tony fights a bunch of Spartans from Halo

    Streets of Gotham disturbed me even more than that issue of Beasts of Burden a few months ago.

    Definitely my moment of the week, if only for how emotional it made me.

    Can someone just confirm the end of Dark Avengers form e?
    So is Loki orchestrating events to make Osborn lose it? Or is he directly influencing Osborn to lose it? Either way, as insane as he is, how is Osborn not realising this?

    And Sentry is gonna die permanently soon, someone who can waste the Molecule Man and apaprently make the Scarlet Witch seem like nothing is beyond too powerful to have around.

    Osborn knows that Loki is a liar and manipulator but the idea to invade Asgard came from his Goblin persona, plus the fact that he wants to honor his promise to deliver on the Cabals wishes (Loki's wish was for Asgard to be back up in the heavens). Lucid Osborn knows that Loki can't be trusted but Goblin Osborn is the controlling factor here.
