    Green Arrow is a dick.

    Brave and the Bold 14.
    A demon takes over Nanda Parbat and imprisons Rama Kushna. Deadman possesses Ollie to try to stop him. Things don't go so well.

    What a coincidence, Black Canary was a bitch in JLA 22.

    Herc was good but
    does that mean the puppy is a skrull now?

    The SI Tie ins were pretty good. Still need to read Angel and the Giant Sized from a week or two ago.

    No she wasn't, she did what she should have.
    Vixen doesn't just copy her teammates' powers, she takes some of their power, so she could screw everything up in a battle. Dinah told her she'll help her figure this stuff out, but she can't have her out in the field with everyone else while her powers are wacked.

    Well what with Batman and the Tower of Babel Incident, Brother Eye, brother eye falling into max Lord's hands, the mindwiping stuff...... basically Vixen didn't do nearly anything as naughty. In fact, no one even noticed until she blatantly did something like steal Superman's power to ge them out of a jam.

    Plus when Superman stuck up for her and told Dinah the the honest to god truth, she blew him off and made it sound like he was just lying to cover for her. Then Roy does the same and gets blown off as well. So even if you don't agree with my examples, you don't call -Superman- a liar, that's being bitchy.

    Now had she punished all 3 of them, Roy and Supes to a lesser degree, that would have made sense. Plus the conversation right after makes her sound bitchy because Vixen didn't go to her first because their"friends" blah blah blah.

    So my first and third points are debatable, but my second point cannot be denied, she for whatever reason made a bad decision without taking all the facts into account.

    I really like how the new Fables trade tied in with basically the whole run. I mean, it dropped references to just about every volume released so far, and opened up possibilities for story arcs that could exist even if they take out the Adversary.

    And aside from a few small spots, the problems I tend to have with Willingham's dialogue were practically nonexistent. It was pretty great.

    It was good but a little anti-climactic

    Homelands is still the best story arc

    I don't know about other Amazon sites (.com, .uk, whatever), but Amazon.ca has a lot of trades up for 1/3 off (new), and free shipping over $40.

    It's a great way to catch up on a series if you're willing to wait a couple of weeks for delivery (depending on availability of the trades, of course).

    Edit: I'd like to amend my MOTW: AXM trade 4 + PA book 5 + 4 trades of Preacher and Fables apiece.

    Half.com is cheaper and is a sub site of Ebay so I can use paypal and my Ebay login.

    I looked at Half.com, but couldn't get any info about international shipping costs. I assume that means they don't do it. Overstock definitely doesn't.

    And you can order other stuff too, like towels, so if you need a comic and you're also really wet then you can take care of both in half the time and also get free shipping on the whole order.

    I also like how their marketplace has cheap paperbacks and occasionally cheap videogames. I got Spider-Man 2 for only a few bucks, and it should be here in a few days.

    The first TPB of Fables is pretty weak. Trudge through it and then buy the subsequent volumes, which only get better as you go.

    no, it's pretty necessary as an introduction to the characters

    I still need to pick up Vol. 9 and 10. I'll probably reread the whole series when I do, since it's been like a year and a half since I last read any Fables
