The New 52: Green Lantern

Unlike you two, I know like, nothing about the Green Lantern aside from the basics. But I did read this in an effort to be open minded, and it seemed interesting, and I am curious what Sinestro has planned. I think Johns did a good job of explaining everything, I didn't feel lost or anything like th...

The New 52: Demon Knights

It might work... her backstory is strange, but I suppose Cornell might just change it, being a reboot and all.... Keep in mind, this is taking place hundreds of years ago. Immortal or not, I'd imagine a few hundred years is an awfully long time to stick with one thing. It's also possible that there ...

The New 52: Demon Knights

Don't forget that the dinosaurs had daggers and armour. Pure win. BTW. I am curious how much of Stormwatch's history is tied into this book. Cornell is writing both, and a panel in Stormwatch quite plainly showed Etrigan and some of the other characters as a previous incarnation of Stormwatch. What ...

The New 52: Animal Man

I have now read Morrison's Animal Man! go me. That was trippy. Though, I guess that's to be expected with Grant Morrison! It's also pretty relevant to the whole reboot situation, since it deals with the ramifications of Crisis, and everything about it is perfectly applicable to the New 52 as well. T...

I know! i love that cover SO MUCH I can't even put it into words.

This looks like a gimmick book that I'm afraid many people will rave about because it features the far-less-popular characters and utilizes "unknown, but respectable talent". Then, should any of these characters pick up in popularity, if the book were to be cancelled, those Hipster Comic Fans will ...

You basically came in here and said all of us were 'hipster comic fans' who are just liking it to be cool. That's a dick move. If you aren't going to read it, that's fine.

Snyder has said that everything will be explained. It may take a while to get to everything, though. Snyder is a slow burn kinda guy. But basically, Alec Holland was a scientist who died in a swamp. Initially, everyone thought he became Swamp Thing, but in Alan Moore's run it was revealed that the '...

This books was way too much fun. I absolutely love how Lemire writes dialogue, it's so natural sounding. It lulls you into a sense of normalcy, then BAM he hits you with something creepy and/or weird, which just makes it have more impact. And the concept I a ton of fun and so far is living up to wha...

Dammit. Why are all the bat books good? I wanted ONE Batman book, dammit. ONE! I'm up to three. I wasn't expecting much from this, but I really liked it. It's very new reader friendly, in that it gives you a rundown of Bruce's history, which is deftly accomplished in an organic way that also lets yo...

The New 52: Mr. Terrific

I thought some parts of this ish were handled well while others felt pretty clumsily handled. The art was iffy, but he's gone next issue anyway so no big deal.

And yeah. I am sick of the 'bitter at god' or 'worships science' atheist trope.

I really don't like the idea of replacing Kurt Wagner with Darkholm. I know Marvel wants to go darker and more gritty but this isn't the way to go. There's room enough in the MU for both versions.

One thing that encourages me about the future of Stormwatch is that they're getting a new artist. holy shit, the art bugged me, the new artist is much better and has worked on The Authority and a Martian Manhunter series. I can see in hindsight how they could seem to have the same voice. I think onc...

The cast of Xfactor is ENORMOUS. Over double almost all the other books. I wonder what the purpose of that is? Still pretty unimpressed.

What If Marvel Did a New 52?

Marvel is constantly doing little reboots, it's nothing new. It's just typically restricted to one family or books or a single character at a time. They're sneaky about their reboots. :shifty DC kind of has a history of line wide reboots though. It's just the way they roll. I'm sure the companies wi...
