GL #65 and GLC #59, still good so far:
John originally wanted Orange but Hal talked him out of it, and Ganthet chews them out for such a stupid idea.
Oh, and Mogo has been corrupted too, and he shows up at Oa, boom goes the dynamite.
Thunderbolts #156, that's how you do the first part of a recruitment issue, and for all you nazis hating on Karla you best be dissing Satana the way she acts snip snip snap:
And Avengers #12,
Thanos was a trick by Strange, Iron Man sends Hood back to jail and disperses the gems, and Steve now has an Infinity Gem with the Illuminati so they can't possibly be evil nazi fascists anymore, right?
But I guess fear of thongs take precedence over sound thinking!
Also, as Wolverine's friends try to purge a demonic presence from his mind, they get some disturbing glimpses into his psyche.
There's also a fun cameo by Nightcrawler.
Also I liked the climax as it is much more interesting than "and the good guys won the end". Some good story potential.
Bolts was really good as said. Invincible Iron Man was great but shouldn't have been labeled a FI tie-in. Nothing ZFI happens until the last few pages.
I am really, really torn on Iron Man 2.0. It was literally an all-dialogue issue. No fight scenes, no action just transcriptions. On one hand the dialogue was really well written, on the other hand it was 22 Pages of talking heads with no War Machine in the whole issue.
Everyone everywhere needs to buy Super Dinosaur. It is just pure 100% uncut fun comics injected into your veins. A T-Rex who plays Xbox and loves to eat pie fights a group of Dinosaurman terrorists (with names like Breakeasaurus, Terrordactyl and Tricerachops) with his 10 year old genius best friend. I'll post a few pages later tonight.
Oh and Hulk was good as always. Fortean is a fantastic antagonist and Rulk v. Tornado was really cool.
The whole book is, to me, exactly what a superhero team book should be. Crazy adventures, and a group of disparate personalities that clash and congeal in interesting ways.
Super Dinosaur #1 was also a ton of fun. For me, it's basically a Saturday morning cartoon, from that era where all cartoons were really just advertisements for toys, in comic book form.
My shop had some copies of Witch Doctor, which wasn't on the shipping list. I guess it was free, since it's not barcoded. Anyhow, it looks to be a little promotional comic for the upcoming Image series, and I have to say, it was pretty good. With a protagonist best described as Dr. Strange meets House, the issue focused on the titular Witch Doctor attempting to excise a vampiric parasitoid from its human host.
I think this best sums up the general feel of the book:
I also bought X-Factor, which was alright, but really spun its wheels a bit. Peter David's new villains are also rather annoying, in how super-prepared they are for everything.
Hulk: Scorched Earth, by Parker and Hardmann, also came in the mail today. I've only read the first two chapters/issues, but damn that's some good stuff. I actually find myself really enjoying the A-Bomb/Rick Jones back-ups, too. It's nice to see a character who's just really stoked to have superpowers, even if it means looking like a big monster.
It's in Wolverine #8, which is his main book.
hopefully we get more SD in the FCBD issue.
And the fact that the A-bomb backups have ended make me sad
Plus, it's a nice reminder that even when you're rehabilitated by the Thunderbolts, that doesn't mean you might not still be kind of a dick.
Was it ... You know which room? :winky:
Next we can predict that water will, indeed, be wet.
I have a right to gloat.
Wouldn't be cool to hammer it until it was finished.
What did you like about it?
Haha, yeah, its was literally a Red Skies thing.
I got things to do today.
I really loved the back-up with Howard and Maria despite Chaykin's art.
Red Skies - DC had every book in their line cross over with the original CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS - a good chunk of these crossover issues (marked with a little crossover blurb at the top of the cover) had nothing to do with CRISIS beyond red skies in the background. The More You Know.
I was wondering how many people I'd get with that.
So, yeah, what jkylefulton said. In IIM, the last page had comet-like things (I'm assuming they're the hammers that the Worthy will wield) streaking through the sky. So, it was literally the same exact thing as Red Skies. I was really amused when I saw that.
Superior to Personality of a block of wood Jordan.
When Hal said "Pick your rings" and actively talked John out of picking orange.
But he couldn't have, because of the gay.
Dude could totally rock that pink thong
I lost 3+ hours yesterday you bastard
The arms are bigger than the waist
Crain art doing nothing but body language, expressive faces and texture in Iron Man 2.0 #4 is a LOT, dude is beast mode. No fight scenes needed.
Interesting how x-force has become the x book. Good art and 80s vibes in #8.
Haven't even had a chance to read Or Stain 6, SHIELD issue infinity, GULA III, or the Jimmy Olsen one shot that I missed. Lotta good stuff this week.
so fucking good
regale me, if you will
but anyway Interman is an adventure comic about a guy with animal superpowers who goes around doing things for various people for money
he's like Darwin from X-Men, he can adapt himself
he's being tracked down by a variety of people and he's just trying to survive and figure out what the hell's going on
Jeff Parker writing is always good
