New Avengers #16, not everything has to be so dour in the world of superheroes these days:

The Rider is Batman and his name is Wayne, that's pretty in your eye, even for mimicking heroes.

Other planet is blown up, and that's the black priest mask, which makes me wonder if the Great Society is the originator of those dudes or if Norn (Dr. Fate) gets corrupted by them.

Avengers #27, kind of the mirror image of NA #16, but at the same time doing in six pages what it took six issues in Forever Evil:

    He's not black.

    Oh my god, Superior Spider-Man 30. Superior Spider-Man 30, you guys.
    "My turn."

    Re. New Avengers 16
    Another possibility with Norn and the Black Priest masks - Norn is a genuine good guy who can use the same powers that they do. That's why he called up duplicates of himself - the powers that the Black Priests use can only be used by multiple people working together. He's just got the strength of will to resist using them for evil. The masks have something to do with it, since he banishes his original helm to wear them.

    I hope it's that, and not something depressing like 'our Justice League expys are secretly evil!' like is so often the case. Also hope they don't die horribly either, which is another thing that happens often.

    I had never considered it before, but now I am definitely
    shipping Kitty/Star-Lord. And we know Ms. Pryde has a thing for people named Peter.

    Sandman Overture part 2 is...well, really, really late, but there are some masterful compositions going on in this book.

    It's not exactly some kind of secret that JH Williams III goes all out a lot of the time, in terms of making unconventional and over the top page work-even if he wasn't actually drawing the work, just planning these layouts, it would still be startling and noteworthy. Just a lot of really good stuff, watching standard rectangular frames transition into globular stuff with negative spacing becoming other frames and then rolling back into standard framing, all in a single page. There is a spectacular cutaway of an abandoned asylum that is rife with surreal anatomy that also services the sequential art of the characters walking through this same location.

    Granted, this sort of stuff doesn't work on everybody, and I'm not saying it's mindblowing, amazing stuff. But I am saying it's really, really well done, and you can tell a serious amount of work was put into this book in a way that manages to do a good job of justifying the delays.

    The story itself? Well. There is some. Things happen. Symbols appear in panels that are likely to become more plot-centric as this thing moves forward. Dream has a discussion with an entity based off some Hebraic apocrypha, a metaphor is unrolled to describe the event underpinning this story, and there seems to be some of Neil Gaiman's prior Dream stuff at play here
    The indication is that there is yet another scorned woman in Dream's past, or something not too far from those lines.
    It looks like the telling of this will pay off well, however; and in the art, again, is very nice. Likely nicer in a final collected volume, but I really don't mind picking these separate issues up in the meantime.

    I love that transformers page...but, then again, wouldn't that effectively, say, 'seal the breach' and lead to the end of this whole robot war? It's such a thematically strong idea to go that way, it's kind of a shame that this kind of development just can't last.

  • CadeCade Eppur si muove.Registered User regular
    The one big issue I got that makes me find it hard to accept is.......he lead the four million year war that killed millions(billions?) of their own people, destroyed their planet for a time, took over and destroyed countless other world and civilizations and the last time he was free he was still up to doing so.

    You got to admit.........that's asking a lot to forgive for. Especially when he's had no issue blowing you apart before.

    Why not?

    The collective popular opinion dosen't give two shits about what happens in Transformer's comics.

    Hell, the only reason why I know about them is because Anti is the John the Baptist of Transformer comics. I honestly don't see how it CAN'T since it's been critically recieved so well.

    Besideds, "sealing the breech" means transitioning from a World War 2 period of open hostility, to more of a "War on Terror/Cold War" period for the Transformers, which opens up a whole slew of storytelling possibilities.

    You can have Autobot's as villians, Decepticons as hero's, factions, hell, you can even have an Autobot/Decepticon colilition that work together in order to start the war again. And you can do so without having to write characters massivley out of character.

    Besides, you know what's going to be amazing?

    Starscream inevitably fucking up his Presidency, trying to start the war again, and then both sides going, "Nah, you did something good here, no thanks".

    It's a given Starscream is going to find what he always wanted is not what he wants.

    Half the fun is watching him being miserable about it.

    There is literally nothing funnier than a straight retelling of plot events in a comic character's life.

    Boiling down like a 10 year arc to "John Jameson was briefly a wolf-man space-god before renting an apartment in New York."

    Take a moment to donate what you can to the International Rescue Committee, the National Immigration Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union. There has never been a more urgent moment to do so.

    Batman/Captain America had a teenage sidekick who died, but was later revealed to be alive, but briefly an enemy.
    Batman/Captain America later wound up presumed dead, but in fact was lost in time. Batman's/Captain America's former sidekick went on to take up the mantle while he was gone, and for sometime afterwards.
