    It's not like he's ever said anything worth hearing, and there might be some great visuals to be had in his using constructs to communicate.

    He's like Sinestro's second in command and drill sergent for the Sinestro Corps in the same way Kilowog is for the GLC. He's not Doc Manhattan deep or anything, but he's had some decent lines.

    I'd have to look again, but I remember it all being really generic, and he could easily pull of his two roles (huge angry beat stick and gruff/scary drill sergeant) silently with an image or two to emphasis his point when needed.

    It's not a huge deal one way or the other, I just happened to enjoy the "seen but not heard" line and the idea struck a chord with me.

    Its gonna be fun to see what happens to Mongul when Sinestro comes to Daxxam. Didn't he get free last issue of Rage of the Red Lanterns?

    he's more concerned about his daughter atm, so the eventual confrontation with Mongul is gonna have to wait

    Oh right. Forgot about that.
    Do we know who his daughter is? Has that ever been revealed?

    What if its Soranik?

    The last issue of of GL could indicate that he didn't know about the daughter until Atrocitus told him. In which case it could be Soranik. It just depends how you read what he says, really.

    You just gave me unlimited amounts of hope, and if your lying then you have crushed dreams!

    Sadly I must wait for trades.

    I predict that Mongul gets his arm back and Arkillo gets his tongue back when the Indigo Lanterns come to Daxam and get compassionate on everyone.

    I'm really hoping that the Indigo Lanterns show up to help the Sinestro/Rage corps when they're down and out.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to the International Rescue Committee, the National Immigration Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union. There has never been a more urgent moment to do so.

    too many people dropped this when fraction left. It's still really good.

    I'm enjoying this arc of Iron Fist so far, but for me the litmus test is going to be if Davos is genuinely reformed or if he's just doing a 5 minute face-turn before jumping back on the crazy train.

    Agreed. I think what makes it so great is that Swierczynski's run flows so naturally from the Brubaker/Fraction run. Had no one told me there was a writer change, I doubt I'd have even noticed.

    Yes, I was kind of "meh" at the writer change but figured I'd try it... and it's paid off in spades.

    Too many people are fucking idiots.

    Really, this was a shit week. IIF was the best issue though.

    I never really understand the train of thought of dropping a book because of a creative change without even giving it a look-see. Out of the three things can happen (It gets better, it gets worse, or it stays roughly the same), only one of those is bad for you. It can't really hurt to give it a chance.

    Well, to be fair, the odds between those three (better, stays the same, worse) still seems to work out at about 25%, 25%, 50% most of the time. :P (EDIT: Forgot to stay that I've stuck with Immortal Iron Fist, and it's definitely worth it, despite my general pessimism)

    Are people still reading DMZ? I'm interested to see how they're gonna handle Delgado Nation having a
    goddamn nuke,
    but the big reveal was last... month? and not really that moment-y either so I guess it doesn't count as a motw..

    Since you all have been saying good things about Swierczynski's IIF I'll probably pick up the trades. But back to the MotW topic, I just read the first 15 or so issues of Invincible. Oh man the part where
    Invincible and Ohmi-man fight
    is soooo fuckin brutal.

    Yeah I feel like undoing that reform is just so cliche. I don't think they're stupid enough to do that, but with comics you never know.

    All I know is that I hope Arkillo sticks around post BN. I don't know why, but he's one of my more favorite characters that has been created recently.
