Batman #15, Bruce dreams pleasant dreams, and where was Joker for the past year?

Batman & Robin #15, it's good but Gleason draws Joker's face better than anything even Eli Roth could come up with. I'm going to just post links to the pictures just to be on the safe side:

Upside down face

putting the face right

Damian can't stand Joker talking

Cable & X-Force #1, Cable gets a new arm, and Dr. Nemesis is easy to convince:

Marvel Universe vs. the Avengers #3, Thor takes his Mjolnir and goes home, and Doom starts experimenting on people to find a cure:

    I'm conflicted about X-men.

    Its just about everything I could want to be each issue but
    The Husk thing makes no sense and they depowered Quentin. Whats up with that?

    I love that batman panel.
    When Alfred shows up in the mask, everyone is all smiles and happy, even though they're looking right at him. Then once he starts swinging the ax, they're surprised, almost as if to say "shit, we shouldn't have given him that ax."

    Iron Man #4: Tony faces a new breed of Extremis in the catacombs beneath Paris:
    A creepy Lovecraft-esque cult began using Extremis to create more suitable hosts for their dark god, as all previous hosts simply died. They promptly went berserk and killed all of the scientists, leaving Tony alone with them. Luckily they programmed the cults' traditions into the enhanciles, including sacred warding symbols. So Tony uses his suit to copy/paste them via laser cannons.

    Man, DeConnick's dialogue can be pretty clunky

    "They're fighting at ten thousand feet and not registering fear!" is a rough line

    Dead horse, everyone knows, etc, those iron man pages would be better if the same panel wasn't used 3 times.

    It keeps getting better, too. Everything is escalating.

    For me, the intensity and excitement has been on par with Marvel NOW.

    I'd share the last page buuuuut i can't find any good pics so instead i'm just going to link the new character model of the dude showing up on the last page Spotlight Orion Pax

    a pretty simple action story, nothing too mind blowing or essential if you're reading MTMTE or RID, but pretty fun

    Christ, that Spotlight panel is the nerdiest thing ever.

  • manjimanji Registered User regular
    pretty certain in some of the old TF comics prime is shown as just having a speaker grille under his faceplate, which i always thought was quite cool, since what does a robot actually need a mouth for...

    That design is actually based off the Machine Wars Optimus I believe.

    X-Treme X-Men #7.1; Dazzler visits a strange, terrifying world, where the X-Men warred with the Avengers, and Cyclops killed Professor Xavier!
    FOIg1.jpg

    tuLUB.jpg

    I really, really liked this issue. Returning Dazzler to her own world, and showing how it's radically changed in her absence, was a really clever idea. And that giant Sky-Whale Xavier looks awesome.

    I do hope Marvel lets Pak finish off his run, despite this series' low sales. He's halfway through the list of evil Xaviers now, and could probably wrap things up with another five to ten issues.

    Dark Avengers #184; Skaar makes puns, Hank Pym abuses his wife, superhuman gangs war over New York, and Tigra hangs out with Dr. Strange.
    TELkv.jpg

    I always like seeing Hank given his proper due, as a legitimately intelligent, strong-willed dude. There was a similar thing in one of Bendis' New Avengers issues, that showed how Skrulls patterned after Pym, kept rebelling, because Pym's willpower was too strong.

    Parker's actually used Pym to pretty great effect, throughout his Thunderbolts run. I wouldn't mind seeing him take a run at a proper Hank Pym series.

    Actually, why the Hell isn't Pym leading the Thunderbolts? That'd be an awesome pitch. One of the least-respected heroes in the Marvel U, in charge of a motley band of supervillains, who are trying to redeem themselves? That just might work.

    Change #1; A rapper, a car thief, and a cosmonaut come together in a tale of Lovecraftian horror and the occult.

    I wasn't really digging this comic, but that last page hooked me for the next issue.

    I have to say, having read this, I think writer Ales Kot is going to be picked up by Marvel very soon.

    And I don't think it's because of the quality of his writing, but rather the character of it. It feels like it, along with his internet persona, have been engineered to make him the next Hickman/Morrison clone. It's a little offbeat, a little personal and mundane, with some big, weird idea stapled onto it, to sell the whole thing.

    And the whole thing just feels like artifice, to me. It's all the right words and shapes, backed by some flowery language, but there's no substance behind it.

    To me, that actually describes Morrison himself perfectly.
