So I only picked up Supergirl this week, not any really "moments" but since I did read her last couple of arcs this one was miles better. The reboot just feels "right." Hopefully it continues, hey I might even end up picking up the Superman books after this.

    The Superman books are awesome right now.

    Geoff Johns' Braniac arc has actually made me like Supergirl

    Sars I think he means how far back should he go on Johns' Action Comics

    the answer is Action Comics #866, thats the start of the Brainiac arc. It's about 4 issues ago now? It's awesome and it also leads into the big Superman/Action Comics/Supergirl crossover thats starting soon.

    I only had 3 books this week: Batman, JLA, and Punisher War Journal.

    I've read the first two, and Batman was pure goodness all the way through.

    But I'd have to say my motw was in JLA, the page of alternate history
    Bruce Wayne becomes a cowboy themed vigilante named Paladin, that's sort of a Lone Ranger knockoff. AWESOME. I'd actually read a comic about Paladin, based solely upon the awesome costume design.

    Edit: Arrrgghh! Why are they still using that godawful artist on Punisher War Journal?

    Matt Fraction has kind of a man-crush on Howard Chaykin.

    Terror Titans was so fucking horrendous that I seriously considered giving up on DC entirely while reading it.

    It's literally representative of everything I hate about the last 5 years of DC Comics

    I just saw on scans_daily that McKeever offed Fever, of John Arcudi's Doom Patrol, one of my favorite under-appreciated comics.

    That fuck is, hand to God, never getting a cent of my money ever again. I'm tired of his shit.

    that is only the smallest part of what I cannot fucking stand about this book

    it is literally the worst thing DC has ever published

    well, next to Identity Crisis

    I enjoyed Identity Crisis. Not to mention the after affects of the book are still being felt to this day.

    It is really good as long as you have no connection with the characters involved whatsoever.


    Although, I still love the Deathstroke fight. Outside of how Flash was handled.

    no even then it was inherently stupid

    unless you mean that in the sense that they were DC Comics superheroes at all

    and even then it's still a shit excuse for a mystery

    I didn't read it as a mystery. I read it as a super hero book in which bad stuff happens and it takes the good guys a while to figure out why.

    I wish Ambush Bug: Year None was canon. It retcons Identity Crisis so
    Jean's motivation to kill comes from Bug telling her that Sue said she was "too career driven to satisfy the needs of [her] man."

    We really shouldn't do this.

    It will only end in fighting and burned houses.

    Ambush Bug: Year None is pretty disappointing imo

    but that part was pretty funny

    I thought the first issue was good. Then the second was too "lol random XD" for me. but the third was about as good as the first.

    Yeah, the third issue was the best so far. The Super Turtle thing, poking fun at DC's legal troubles with Superboy, was worth a chuckle.

    But overall it's been pretty disappointing.

    Followup: I e-mailed Sean McKeever stating my intention to never buy another of his books again, or otherwise support his writing, as well as praise for his Marvel work, and criticism for everything he's done at DC, and he sent me back a message which, given the circumstances, was pretty polite.
    Hi, Colt.

    I strongly disagree with you about the quality of my writing, but you're
    certainly welcome to your opinion.

    For what it's worth, I was a huge fan of Arcudi's Doom Patrol and was
    ramping up to having Fever eventually join the Teen Titans. But at the end
    of the day, I'm merely a freelancer and don't get to make all the decisions.

    Anyway, do what you will.

    -Sean

    I have a hard time seeing how a character makes the jump from, "eventually join[ing] the Teen Titans," to having their brains splattered across the floor. Really, is there just some vindictive editor that, upon seeing an obscure character is still active, decides, "Oh man, we gotta kill that one," the writer's protests be damned?

    this weeks Batman was awesome if a bit predictable
    although I guess Morrison said that it was right in front of our faces and he was suprised at all the outlandish proposals about the Black Glove
