MOTW 2/3/10: It's Metal, yo
World of New Krypton #12 ends mixed:
Zod is clean in the matter, it was the black council guy Wri-Qin who helped conspire with Lane in order to let Krypton lose in a war with Earth so he could be ruler of a Occupied-like Krypton.
And then this:
So it really does seem like this whole series could have been a 6 issue arc in Superman. At least they did something decent with Zod.
What is that thing? Yes it seems that it was a very long drawn out arc with little achieved.
How many Superman comics are there now because I don't recall that? My MOTW would be Siege 2 I guess, the art was working well and I just like Ares and everything he does though I'm not QUITE clear on how
This month, the origin of Immortal Man in Darkness:
She then demands that he takes her to his place, where Emma Frost laughs at her.
Also, I agree with TexiKen (WHAT!?!). Great Ten is fantastic.
Hercules and Ares fighting their way out of the Underworld... new miniseries this summer! We NEED this.
For those of you who don't click spoilers, I limed every word.
I bet you read spoilers now dontcha? Ya. Ya you do.

You silly goose, spoiler tags matter.
Least till the TPB comes out then its like saying King Kong dies at the end of the movie. Statute of limitations and all that jazz.
On the one hand, I'm glad Kal was able to have a positive influence on his culture and he got the labor guild a seat at the table.
But at the same time, I'm greatly annoyed that the story didn't really end. We just got a big fat "To be continued." I was really hoping for a more clear cut resolution leading into the War of the Supermen.
This is a great idea. This should become a rule.
However, now that I have read the issue my favorite moment was when Thor knocks Karla the fuck out as she's about to kill Maria.
In other books, The Question #37 was pretty frigging awesome and the obviously defining moment was at the end between BL Charlie and Tot.
In other news, two things I want to mention.
1. I find it interesting that Jonathan Hickman mentioned on Word Balloon that Marvel West (had to?) signed off on his S.H.I.E.L.D. book.
2. When I bother to check CBR anymore, I check the bottom of the newest X-Position article waiting for a chance to pose questions to Chris Claremont. I'm sure there's a better way, but whatever. If I hadn't I would't have read this from their interview with Daniel Way (and Marjorie Liu, but she's not important here).
That... that artwork is beautiful. Who's the artist on that?

Oh so he's the douchebag to blame for Daken.
I like Daken in small doses, although I'm hoping that Wolverine kills him for reals soon. That would be pretty awesome.
And yes, that was C.P. Smith on Weapon X 10
Wolverine all quoting Bill Cosby's routine as he finishes Daken off, "Boy, I brought you into this world. I'll take you right back out. I can make another claw-popping one exactly like you."
The first story's a fun little Mary Jane/Gwen Stacy/Peter Parker story written by Kathryn Immonen, with art by Elena Casagrande, who draws in a style not unlike Stuart Immonen.
The second story has Rick Spears writing and James Callahan drawing a story about Boom Boom and Elsa Bloodstone, as they stake out a creepy forest, hunting monsters and telling stories about their ex-boyfriends. I was cracking up throughout the story, but I think this bit was my favorite.
The latter two stories were okay; not really anything special on the writing side, but the art was, throughout the book really, great. It's always nice to see work from people I'm unfamiliar with. There's a pinup in the back by Lara West and Emily Warren that really reminds me of Amanda Conner's work. And Jim McCann wrote a story about Beast and Dazzler that played up Hank's poetic, literature-quoting side, something I always enjoyed in the nineties X-Men cartoon.
Is this some sorta stab at all the people, me and a guy named Harry, that are Nextwave fans? I'm going to get this book, but if they don't mention the aforementioned Agents of H.A.T.E.....Harry and I will write letters, I mean old school style stamps and everything.
I don't think you know what a stab is.
I really do need to buy that. But c'mon, I'm already getting one of Tony Bedard's critically acclaimed commercial failures with REBELS.
