So, I only had 2 books but man I really enjoyed TT:Year One. Iron Man was good as well but nothing to blow me away.

MotWeak: Forgetting to pick up Guardians of the Galaxy :(

    Catwoman was pretty badass.

    Relevant back story: Catwoman has just returned from the Salvation Run planet and plans to settle an old score.

    Creepy coyote is watching you shag. Pups name is Kirby, by the way. Not sure if it's a SKrull or if Nightmare or something is possessing it.

    Guardians of the Galaxy

    Rocket Raccoon had some great lines, too, especially his explanation for his dislike of Cosmo.


    Dream War #3

    Where is your prep time now, Batman? Not sure what this series is about, but she decapitates Batman on the next page in the scans I saw. I'm guessing it's spoilers for Batman RIP's ending (that's a joke, I don't really believe that).

    Once again, Rocket Raccoon is the best thing about GotG, followed closely by Cosmo. Cosmo barely got a few panels though. :v:

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    I think in Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four (which is actually shaping up to be pretty good)

    JLA was pretty good. Not a lot happened storywise, but it had some good character interactions and was a good setup for things to come.

    Also, I enjoyed Batman and the Outsiders quite a bit. Maybe its because I'm having to cherish it more since Dixon is leaving. Each issue with his name on it becomes more and more sentimental.

    I picked up Invincible Iron Man #2 this week and
    Oh my god Filipino heroes. I am Filipino, and I found it bizarrely inaccurate and delightfully hilarious. It's like when you spot your friend in the background shot of a television show. "Hey! That's something familiar!" Except some details make no sense. Buddhist monks at a ceremony in a country that's 95% Catholic and 5% Muslim? A mongoose? I'm not offended or anything, it was just fun to pick on the flaws. This must be what it's like for scientists when they watch movies like The Core, or historians buffs watching 300.

    This probably doesn't need to be spoilered, because who the fuck is reading the Wildstorm/DC Crossover anyway?

    I liked it as well, even though I think it suffers a bit from having so much stuff going on at once. I kinda wanted more Batgirl than we got, since she's prominent on the cover. Still, this was pretty badass:

    Also, it pains me that Julian Lopez is apparently leaving this book along with Dixon. He's doing an issue of Titans of all things.

    The letter-corners (or whatever Bendis calls it) it generated at the end of each book is even better than the issue itself. So much comedy gold there.

    Got Gemini #2. Not as good as the first issue, but I love the art in this. It's like Skottie Young crossed with Nick Bradshaw.

    GotG was also excellent.

    That exchange very much reminded me of Dr. Manhattan talking to Laurie in Watchmen. Red Tornado has a bit of limited omniscience (oxymoron?) on the JLA satellite, sort of like Manhattan.

    Yeah, but he's referring to the time he actually stood in their doorway, watching them bump uglies.

    JLA's been weird ever since the relaunch.
