    It seems like it's been awhile since a new Runaways came out, unless I just missed it.
    Issue 27 is out first week of July. And then I think there's nothing until October.

    No, issue 28 is out in August (according to the solicitations), keeping Runaways to its official six week release schedule.

    I think it's Astonishing that's being delayed for months on account of John Cassaday wanting to do the final issue of Fallen Son.

    On the one hand, Cassaday is awesome and that would be a fitting tribute.

    On the other hand, Cassaday is awesome and I want my goddamn X-men.

    JLA talk:
    So why DIDN'T Karate Kid die? He didn't "duck" like he told them. He's clearly getting a bolt through the gut. These, plus the other unanswered questions they created, are the only gripes I have with the issue. Thinking of the whole story, we didn't really learn a whole lot. The legionnaire's came, they revived Wally, and then they left. We don't know why they came, why Karate Kid didn't die, why he has to stay here, what they received in the 30th century, or anything.
    Karate Kid is supposed to be a major player in Countdown, so they'll explain it in there. I guess he didn't die because they didn't really bring anyone back from the dead, they just pulled Wally and family out of the speed force.

    Explanation of JLA:
    No, he isn't getting a bolt through the gut. His body is to one side of the bolt. Lightning is damaging to an area, so he did get some electrical backwash.

    Also, watch his lightning rod.
    It's glowing after the strike.
    And it continues to glow.
    And he makes a point of making sure his rod is delivered to the future.

    Read into Brainiac 5's words. At the very last panel, that's not B5's reflection in the tip of the rod.

    That's a trapped soul.

    The purpose of the trip was to go into the past and retrieve whomever is trapped in the lightning/speed force, and bring that person to the future.
    They succeeded; the Legionnaires got who they wanted, and he is trapped in the lightning rod.

    Who is it?

    My money is on Barry Allen, but others speculate that it is Bart Allen (doubtful).

    Wally West and his family emerging from the lightning strike is (1) an unintended side-effect and (2) a distraction for the JSA/JLA to focus on instead of realizing that the Legion has someone trapped in the lightning rod.

    Now, I don't know why Karate Kid, Dream Girl, and Starman have stayed, but they have something to do with Countdown.

    Ah. Interesting. Probably the best explanation I've read.

    But then where will I go to find out who the pre-crisis Legionnaire's have?

    Yeah, Plasm was really great. Benito's Livejournal is heartbreaking to read, because he's a pretty clearly talented guy who cannot for the life of him find anybody to draw his comics.

    My shop didn't have Spirit #7 so I'll have to get it next week

    Also they had the variant for JLA which was awesome because it wasn't Michael Turner

    and I picked up Scott Pilgrim Volume 1

    and Catwoman: When In Rome

    also I got Catwoman #68 because the solicits said it ties into Countdown but it didn't

    it was the end of an arc

    the only Countdown "tie" was that Holly was in it

    but it wasn't bad

    now I just have to pick up the other issues

    WHERE IS IMMORTAL IRON FIST 6?????!!! AAAAAAHHH!!

    In other news:

    Conan 41
    Hedge Knight
    Incredible Hulk 107
    Iron Man 19
    Ult Spidey 110

    Meant to get some other stuff but I can't keep my enthusiasm up for a lot of those titles. DC has been failing me lately: I'm not liking the Checkmate crossover, which sucks since Checkmate is awesome. Countdown is weak sauce. JLA is similarly feeble. And where the hell is JSA?

    For now it's definitely Make Mine Marvel. Hopefully Sinestro Wars can change that...

    I'm usually far more interested in artists than writers but I'm FED UP with Meltzer. I shouldn't be so aware of the writer trying to be clever when I'm reading a story.

    On the other hand, this issue didn't bother me as much as some of the others. I'm very glad he won't be around much longer though.

    I read Peter David's book about writing comics, and he mentions that technique.

    However, he mentions like five or six different ways to do that.
