August 29, 2013 12:42 am And while I enjoyed the issue, my pick was Thor 12. Far, FAR superior to anything else Aaron has done on that title (which has been a bit uneven, but still had moments of greatness). Fantastic issue, Thor. I heartily encourage all to pick it up. It's stand alone, too.
August 29, 2013 12:40 am It's 'canon' for Earth 2, which is where the meeting (and the story) took place. That's what gives the whole thing an added layer of pathos. You know that these heroes - these FRIENDS - will soon be slaughtered by the forces of Apokolips. (The Flashbacks are a direct re-enactment of a Loeb/Sale story from years ago up until Bruce actually stays and plays the Baseball game; sort of a 'what if'. It works much better in the context of an alternate, purposely hokey universe like Earth 2, for me).
June 25, 2013 4:55 pm I was late on this and that's fine! I actually have all of "Change" already, just thought it would be a fun exercise! Cheers to everyone!
June 25, 2013 4:23 pm There came a time when the old gods died.... What drives me, what bangs on the walls of my person, is the desire to connect, to create, to experience, to live. I think, to some extent, all of us are still fighting with these outdated and outmoded conceptions of success and achievement, some more than others. This generation of the middle class is one of the first, and largest, ever to realize that simple 'survival' is no longer an achievement. For the first time, a huge group of individuals is dissatisfied with simply making ends meat, because for the first time (on a wide scale) that accomplishment is rather mundane. Once, we might have all been happy to keep our heads afloat, put food on the table, live languid lives working at something that gave us direction without giving us meaning. No longer. And so I struggle with those old gods, struggle to slash and burn and devastate them, so that something new might be forged from their atoms within me. Something modern. Something unique. Something relevant. And it's an ongoing struggle, one that I haven't come close to winning. And maybe for the first time I'm taking real steps - unsure steps, clumsy steps - off a more secure path, onto something dangerous, a path that could at any moment stop dead, filled with traps, cut-purses, tolls with no promise of forward movement even after they're paid. But for too many years I searched for meaning in vain and instead substituted 'purpose'. And that was enough, for a while. It isn't enough anymore. Too many friends have died to that sickness, literally and figuratively. So it's time to move forward. To externalize the internal. To do something that moves the people around me, that moves the people within me. And it can be lonely. And it can be scarey. Because that's death, and life. That's CHANGE. And that's okay. There came a time when the old gods died. Apocalypse or ragnorak, they died in fire and in ice. Violently and silently, swaddled in smiles, dripping with tears. It happened yesterday. It will happen tomorrow. It is happening even now. I recommend it. It's quite a thing.
June 14, 2013 9:21 am Eh? Guedes did the first 3 issues, I'm quite sure. The colorist makes Neves stuff look reasonably similar.

April 15, 2013 8:10 am To feed his healing factor. Thought that was quite obvious.
February 19, 2013 9:38 am My list: 1. Zauriel - I loved this character ! We need more! 2. Aztek - What a fun concept this was 3. Klarion The Witchboy - The Morrison version made some appearances under the pens of BQM and Beechen, and they were highlights 4. Manhattan Guardian - Lovely character 5. XOMBI - by John Rozum only, of course. In fact, I'd like John Rozum to write any of those.
January 22, 2013 1:10 pm Detective had a good tie in that was completely unessential. That it was so tangential, and different, is what made it good. The others that I've seen have been fairly forgettable. I'm the one person in the world who really enjoyed what Nocenti has been doing with Catwoman, tie in included.
January 17, 2013 1:21 pm I'm pretty sure that nothing is under the dome. That it's Batman's fears, the fears that result from caring about the people around him, that is under the dome. All the things he imagines that it could be, that it will be, all the things the Joker can take from him that would destroy him. And in that way, it's his weakness that the Joker serves to him on a silver platter.
