    It is collected on its own, but has the same trade dress as the Iron Fist collections

    I already owned IIF volumes 1 and 2 in trade form

    bought the Omnibus anyways because it is swank as hell

    The binding is in Iron Fist green with golden letters. I will admit I was a little disappointed it didn't just have a big golden Iron Fist logo like the Book of Iron Fists.

    My MotW had to be the ending to the latest League of Extraordinary Gentlemen book ("Century: 1969") if only for the WTF factor. It ties in thematically with the rest of the series (creating the ultimate fanfic/unifying all of popular fiction in one universe) and it's surprisingly ballsy from a legal standpoint, but I have no idea how it's going to tie-in to the conclusion, which is to be set in 2009.

    The whole thing was pretty good too, but (having been born in 1987) 90% of the references flew past me. Moore grew up in this era, so he clearly feels comfortable playing with his own sense of nostalgia but, I dunno, it seemed to come at the expense of actual storytelling.

    EDIT: Fuck it; here's Chris Sims from Comics Alliance. I think he's got a better grasp of the material than I do

    Project: Superman 2 was still kind of a let down, but it had sort of a funny/horrible/gruesome moment.

    Once again, no scans, just the spoiler.
    Project Zero somehow telepathically gives a burst of yellow sun energy to Krypto as he's being demonstrated as a weapon to Lionel Luthor. Krypto goes feral and literally rips most of the people in the room to shreds. Lionel tells his young son Lex to stay very still. Lex freezes up, hoping the dog won't attack him. Lionel throws the boy to Krypto, and Krypto bites right through one of his arms before maiming a 10-year-old Lex Luthor to death. While Krypto is ripping Lex up, a guard with what was apparently a Kryptonite shotgun blew Krypto apart.

    Sort of over the top with the gore, but it explains Flashpoint Krypto's fate a bit more. Also, they imply that Supergirl's rocket was faulty, and that she completely burnt up on entry.

    That is horrifying. Are they trying to outdo Ultimatum for stupid and disgusting comics?

    Yeah, I think so. You should go read Flashpoint: Legion of Doom #2. It's... it's not good. It absolutely has an Ultimatum feel, where they know they are ending the universe so why not do it as savagely as possible.

    My motw is the end of Secret Warriors. It's been a great series, and it ended well. I'm interested to see what happens with Daisy, and I hope that Nick Fury is actually left alone to an extent now. He's won his war, he should get a chance to spring the contessa and disappear with her, get some peace.

    Immortal Iron Fist was probably my favorite series at the time is was coming out. Any appearance of Iron Fist these days makes me crave more.

    The last page killed me.

    My MOTW is that Jonathan Ross came into my local comic shop and signed a bunch of Turf HCs, so I decided to pick one up and man I love Tommy Lee Edwards

    I think it lost me this issue, but I'll put that in the X-Men thread
