MOTW 1-6-10: Parents Are Getting Divorced h/a!
JSA All-Stars #2 is still good, and the new character introduced is already likeable, as opposed to a character like Misfit that was very annoying until issues later.
That is Roxy, Rex's new AI for the team, she had some good lines earlier in the book, almost like a teenage Cortana.
I also like how Williams is basically being like Wally Wood and drawing PG's breasts to near ridiculous levels to see what he can get away with. The other art is still solid, as always.
And Suicide Squad #67 is basically Secret Six #16.5:
He's not dead though, which is why you always need to double tap.
Yeah that was a nice touch. Hopefully Marvel will give more stuff for Coipel to do after Siege if he's up to it.
The other JSA members were getting a mite uncomfortable with a full grown man showing a young teenager such attention so there was a talk and since CM couldn't or wouldn't tell who he was he left.
Was a bummer! Jay chewing Marvel out for seemingly cradle robbing.
I was actually thinking this morning how I didn't like that bit too much. I think my problem is that those motion lines looked really symbolic, and more towards the abstract side of how comics do things, while the character in question was rendered in a much less cartoony, more, I don't know, representative fashion. Like, not photorealistic, but in that direction. The juxtaposition of the two somehow seemed weird to me.
I was trying to figure out how I'd have done it instead, and the only thing I could think of was kinda lame and dumb:
Rictor's eyes that last panel look like they weren't part of the face the artist traced. He also draws Cyclops with that lame grunge stubble.
Reminds me of John Byrne's work half the time when he'd have people looking around excited and everything was white with no backgrounds or anything.
I really hate it when artists don't draw backgrounds. Like, they're a pain in the ass sure, and not necessary for a lot of shots, but for an entire page to be nothing but swathes of color behind figures just comes off as lazy.
It looks like they just filtered the heck out of some photos for those backgrounds
"bad news...bravo team's down".
and of course criminal.
Superman: World of New Krypton is still good but it would've been amazing if they'd told a standalone story in it. Instead it's just treading water until the Superman event next year, just like all the other Superman books. And they wonder why Superman sales are down...
Even though it wasn't new I just read the latest Initiative last night as well. I actually felt bad for ole Taskmaster.
I assume you're talking about X-Ray and Vector of the U-Foes.
They're mostly Hulk villains, which makes them sort of obscure since Hulk hasn't fought his rogues in a long while. I knew of them, but I'd never read a story with them in it until now.
Basically it takes place when Bob comes back to earth, and after saving people, a man from Timely (Marvel) Comics teaches Bob about being a hero with a secret identity and how superheros aren't popular at the time (compared to pulp and western and war stuff), and to call himself Marvel Boy instead of the Uranian (as people thought it was promotion for a movie, they call him the "Venusian")
Felix Ruiz is also channeling Sienkiewicz on the art, a good book.
it's really good and another reminder that millar isn't just a BIG BUDGET HACK or whatever
She got Ultimate Jan'd.
