You know, Alan Moore might be a genius and a warlock, and he might have given us Watchmen, but he's also a whiner and a crybaby. Johns and Tomasi continue to throw his quote back in his face about people using stuff he wrote 20 years ago to fuel their stories. Blackest Night might have originated as an off-handed line in a throw away Tales Of book, but they've turned it into what has actually been a very good story so far. And the short story "Mogo Doesn't Socialize" might've been just that, a short story, but the stuff they've done with Mogo since then has been pretty awesome.
Including today's GLC in which
Mogo purges Oa by devouring all Black Lanterns and digesting them down into the very core of the planet.
The "painsaw" appears.
God of War type chain thingy
nuclear bomb constructs
effin liliputians, how cool is that?
And Guy making a hammer and anvil with which to squish Kyle's head, all good stuff
GLC wins against anything released that week, Morrison was so scared of Tomasi and Gleason he had Batman & Robin be delayed (yeah, that's the truth, what).
It's super obvious, but nonetheless very smart, and I can't recall seeing it done before.
The art is fantastic too, the house that the boy lives in is frighteningly well drawn.
"because the sky's gone black"
And that's David Knight, just so you know.
It's basically the South Park Imaginationland movie, but Morrison's version doesn't suck.
The toys-come-to-life thing's been done more recently in Stuff of Legend, so that's not really a new angle. I just like that a rather mundane set of circumstances is what kicks the whole thing off.
the obvious being Jack Knight is no longer star man
If you've just read about Shade from his JSA or Green Arrow appearances, that could be just as good.
Actually, no. I'll say this: Wildcat, you might want to stay away from this week's Dark Avengers.
...how the fu...
Was this Loeb written?
uh i'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic with that comment
So is Marvel doing a remake of Bob, the Devil, and God?
Bendis goes with the idea that Sentry/Void is essential to the universe like Galactus is, and that Bob was a drug addict who needed the formula all the time because he was obsessed with having biblical-level power which is what he was tapping into (which could be universe founding power just used with religious contexts like Jesus and Moses). And everytime he died he switched between Sentry and the Void or something and Lindy should have killed him when they got married.
I think that was supposed to be more of a comparison rather than an outright revelation.
It is possibly a "future telling -I dont know the exact word foretelling the future i mean-" kinda event so I hardly think it is real.
Oh look a new winner.
is really funny to me.
I find it kinda funny to be honest.
I mean normally Galactus is not an evil being. I cant see why he would do such a thing or share his power cosmic with a mere human at all.
merc with a mouth is balls awesome
Is the cheap poser "art" a joke or for real?
