MOTW 3/6/13- Not The Lobotomies and the Shadowplay, But...

edited November 2013 in Graphic Violence
More Than Meets the Eye 14, everything hits the fan. Overlord and Chromedome have a "talk" in the basement of the Lost Light.

We find out HOW the planet razer Overlord got on the Lost Light, WHO was responsible, and WHY Chromedome was being used.
Prowl wanted Chromedome, a mnemosurgeon, to look into Overlord's head and find out how Decepticons were able to make so many super soldiers, so that the Autobots could do the same.

Chromedome had a bad past that he moved on from, a lobotomist for the old regime circa Zeta Prime. He's done loads of things that Chromedome's most trusted and closest friend, practically his husband, didn't know. Prowl wanted to use that against him.

    All New X-Men #8, The Avengers find out about Hank's further abuse of the timestream, with predictable results. Especially predictable to Kitty and Bobby:

    Atomic Robo Two-Fisted Tales: Along Came a Tyrantula was an unexpected but wonderful MotW for me. Great use of Guided View, and just a lot of fun. I'm trying to look for fun screenshots but the whole Guided View thing makes it a bit more difficult.

    Also, Grade 9 Physics Club is the bestest Iron Fist move. The. BESTEST.

    The penultimate issue of Glory asks the question, will Munch ever get tired of seeing a ton of Rob Liefeld characters?

    NOPE

    Prophet #34; New Father Prophet deals with politics, an attempted assassination, and a challenge to his leadership. Business as usual.

    I've said it before, but this series did a great fake-out with the first few issues, where you follow this guy through all these hardships, only to eventually realize that he's the bad guy. He revives the Earth Empire, which sets off on an imperialistic quest to restore humanity to dominance in the universe.

    I wasn't sure what to expect, when the story finally swung back around to him, but I'm really digging it. You get the feeling that he doesn't really enjoy being in this new leadership role, but he's in it nonetheless, and doing his best.

    Also, he goes all Eastern Promises at the end of the issue, getting into a naked knife fight against four-armed aliens, while bereft of his synthetic arm.

    Uncanny Skullkickers #1; Goofus and Gallant crash-land on an island. PLUS: A special bonus story!
    LSjYZYN.jpg

    I have to admit, with the whole renaming/numbering gimmick, I was hoping for more of a fresh start to this series. And then the issue begins with two pages of a guy standing around, delivering many word balloons' worth of exposition.

    But, once I got past that, I found myself really enjoying the comic. I'd tried it out in the past, reading it on Keenspot, but never really got into it. I may just have to buy some TPBs, and read it that way.

    The gimmick of having a "bonus story" featuring the corpse of Shorty the dwarf, floating through the ocean as fish peck at him, stealing pieces of his clothing, sort of cracked me up.

    I also really liked that, at no point in the story, is there any inkling of romance between Rex and Kusia. Their relationship is almost more Booster and Beetle; one trying really hard to be proactive and thoughtful, the other blithely taking things as they come.

    His sister. A Supergirl analogue from the Alan Moore issues.

    Also, for those who didn't know: Bloodwulf's enormous gun is also his bike.

    Pretty sure this is the issue that gets Spidey fired from the Avengers.

    I love how even tho he's riding a giant gun, he's got another gun in hand ready to go, you know, just in case.

    I figure it's so he can shoot things that his gun-bike isn't pointing at. It's hard to do a drive-by when your main weapon is permanently facing forward.

    If at all possible, Lobo's humor was a little more subtle and sophisticated, actually poking fun at ultra-violent comics and the fans who enjoyed them. On the other hand, Bloodwulf's humor is more standard fare, poking fun at science fiction standards like Star Wars, Star Trek and Aliens in a more juvenile Mad Magazine fashion. The first issue of the Bloodwulf limited series has a pair of droids approaching the bounty hunter with a hidden message from a captured princess asking him to find a reclusive hermit who is her "only hope." Issue #2 has Bloodwulf visiting the Pleasure Plaza, a space station that looks like a brothelized version of Star Trek Deep Space Nine (including having a Ferengi bar tender). The final villain of the limited series is a verbose soliloquizer who is an amalgamation of Darth Vader and Sandman writer, Neil Gaiman (called "Gaimanwank" in the story).

    So, I know what I'm buying the next time I'm at the comic store.
