JLI 90's Retroactive, really funny stuff, and seems to take place after JLI #37-ish. Giffen and DeMatteis are a lot funnier here than there BG run was, and a good, strong story that takes you back.

name your cat after Ted, Booster has a field day with it.


And Batman: Gates of Gotham #5 sets the stage for Snyder's run, and I get a good feeling he might be using Cass, if the denouement is any indication.

And then Damian has a Problem Child smirk on his face on the next page.

    MotW has to be John Byrne's NEXT MEN #39. I've been waiting for that ending for fifteen years!

    Who's that next to Fury in that last panel

    It looks like his eyes are going to pop out of the sockets

    Do not have a cow, mortal.

    Action Comics #904, Lois describes Superman perfectly and why this version of the character was so great:

    And the Superman 90's retroactive was fantastic, even better than the JLI one, it kind of takes place after Doomsday when Luthor was falling apart in his clone body. Simonson even brings back the Newsboys! And Bogdanove's art never looked better, I sure would like to see him draw an arc or a mini these days. This panel alone is great:

    D'awwwww, look at Clark's face.

    Green Lantern 90s RetroActive was my MOTW. The Marz/Banks Kyle Rayner Green Lantern run got me into comics. Even though Marz has returned to Kyle a few times since then, having Banks along was just a perfect nostalgic combo. Maybe Marz can do an arc on New Guardians at some point.

    Brubaker has said that he plans to use the character in the future, he just keeps thinking of other stories to tell first.

    Pretty much. Brubaker has said he wanted to follow up that story, but he just hasn't gotten to it yet.

    EDIT: Damn it.

    The art is good. The story is paced in such a way that it's hard to review it until more is revealed.

    But the art is really good.

    Ultimates was good. Ribic is a great artist.

    I haven't read the new Ultimates yet, so maybe it's a bit premature, but I'm pretty sure that my MOTW is finally getting to read through Casanova vol 2. Fraction wrote the shit out of that one, and Moon's art is amazing as always. Made me even more excited that the series has been revived.

    Ultimates was so great
    Just watching SHIELD handling three global crises, and seeing them all slowly burn out of control was incredible.

    Also, Kid Flash Lost had the best ending out of any Flashpoint tie-in I've read so far. For those who didn't read it, a summary:
    Bart used Hot Pursuit's control rod to enter the speed force last issue, and now he's become a new black flash. He races through the flashpoint timeline and reclaims the speedforce energies of all the speedsters in that reality. When he gets to Wally, who had no powers in the Flashpoint timeline, he realizes that the speedforce is using him as a tool to help right the timeline and collect the stray speedforce energy. Once he's collected the last of it, he becomes the White Flash, and races up to Barry. Bart connects with Barry, and then merges into the speed force the same way Barry did in CoIE. Barry now gains the collective energies of every speedster, and Bart remains inside the Speed Force with all of the Flash Family, encouraging Barry.

    Langly, you should check out the two SLEEPER trades as well. Still Brubaker and Phillips, but with super heroes and espionage. It's pre-INCOGNITO Incognito.

    Yeah, Ribic is really awesome. Was Uncanny X-Force his first gig before Ultimates?

    And the Loki mini from a few years ago.

  • BalefuegoBalefuego Registered User regular
    I actually like his interior work considerably more than his painted stuff
