October 8, 2013 11:50 am Didn't care for the Penguin issue. A guy commits suicide on national television immediately after saying "Sometimes the bullies win" was completely tasteless.
September 1, 2013 7:52 pm No more iFanboy Pull Lists? :-( Such a great resource, very sorry to see it go.
August 29, 2013 11:21 am No one is reading the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ongoing? It's been amazing! Definitely my pick for one of the best right now, issue after issue is an absolute home run.
August 28, 2013 9:39 pm Pick of the Week, this is beyond a TMNT fans dream come true, and the last page cowabunga I nearly shit my pants.
August 28, 2013 8:14 pm Flashpoint was never originally conceived to facilitate the complete reboot and erasing of 70+ years of storylines. The New 52 was a quick and drastic editorial mandate from the top down, and DC was forced to shoehorn an explanation into their pre-existing event, because hey better than nothing right? The problem is that Flashpoint was never meant for this and just wasn't equipped to satisfyingly explain the change. So what we got was a two page thread with a new mystery character, a bunch of cryptic non-sense (that we now know never paid off), and the new character Easter egging in every first issue (a truly transparent sales stunt as we now know it served no story and makes no sense). The new 52 really bothered me because it felt like DC panicking and throwing the baby out with the bath water. Now we have a new universe that's, lets face it, just as "confusing" to new readers as the old one, and a five year conceit that actually hinders good storylines instead of enhancing them (I'm thinking specifically about the Bat books here)
August 28, 2013 8:00 pm I'm not a johns hater, I like a real lot of his stuff. But that first justice league arc was just awful, I mean truly terrible. But hey, can't like them all I guess. Just hope Darkseid gets a rehabilitation after that utter butchering of his character.
August 28, 2013 7:55 pm Every detail, I called this ending in every detail. I've been saying it for weeks (months?) now. Alfred, gateway, earth 3, crime syndicate. Even the bit with the atom. (Although not the method, which was a bit of identity crisis throwback) Sorry I just have to pat myself on the back a few times, because really, it felt so incredibly obvious and no one else seemed to be saying it. Ok I'm done.
August 28, 2013 11:22 am I was wondering whatever happened to the JLI in the New52. In-story, is that group just completely ignored and retconned out?
August 27, 2013 1:21 pm Are they based on comics? Or are they based on Cartoons based on Toys based on awesome?
August 27, 2013 1:19 pm My experience with Steel was from the Death and Return of Superman comic books in the early 90's. It sort of tried to play into Steel's storyline there, but it was just awful and, no, Superman had nothing to do with anything.
