CANCELPOCALYPSE! DC Brings The Hammer Down on LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, THRESHOLD, DEMON KNIGHTS, & DIAL H
May 14, 2013 3:05 pm I agree. I liked Dial H too. Threshold has no plot that I'm aware of.
February 2, 2013 10:20 pm I agree, this issue was kind of a step back, but up until now it had been moving towards a better constant. I didn't like the numerous firestorms at all.
January 31, 2013 9:51 pm I don't know that Green Lantern even really exists in the new 52. It has retained all aspects of continuity I can see, except Hal appears younger. I thought the issue was more rushed than I would have liked. I enjoyed it for all the action, and you are right that it is nice to see an annual do SOMETHING. I would have liked more understanding in what is going on with the Guardians, but I guess we will have to wait for the end of the next Green Lantern "event." If it happens all the time shouldn't it just be a "Green Lantern normal"?
January 27, 2013 9:12 am This was a total waste. I'm not reading Justice League Dark and I almost had to for me to care about this story. I get that they want it to be a part of the bigger DCU, but it really feels like this one was shoe horned in there. It got my lowest rating of any of the books so far.
January 26, 2013 11:01 am I actually liked this issue. It sets the character arc for Superboy to try to become a superhero. Right now he is fighting the intent of his creation to become a neutral player. Superman does lecture Superboy a lot, and it reminds me of the old relationship between Iron Man or Hawkeye and Captain America, where Cap used to push them to become better than they already were. Superman is clearly perturbed that someone would weaponize the smallest piece of him, but he is taking on the role of elder statesmen/father, much to the chagrin of Superboy. The issue did retell the whole story up to that point in many ways, but DC has chosen to forgo the recap page and it is an annual. Every comic is someone's first.
January 25, 2013 11:21 pm Same here. I can't believe I heard Connor talk about comics that "don't matter" in the last pod, but it really hurts books like this. Comic fans want books that matter from the big two, no matter how much our podcast masters tell us even they don't. Really hurts books like this, which are fun, but are competing for a small market. Really loved this story. Just a lot of fun.
January 20, 2013 7:29 pm Agree. Really think the GL story is forced, contrived and the dialogue isn't even good. Larfleeze story makes it worthwhile.
January 20, 2013 10:59 am I like this issue a LOT. Worried about posting spoilers, but with the reemergence of mutants it seems there are a lot of interesting stories to tell as a once small but fragmented mutant community engages in an arms race with other groups that obviously have a vested interest.
January 11, 2013 7:27 pm This was horrible. The writing and art were bad. I love Green Lantern books just for the sake of Green Lantern too. This is AWFUL.
December 11, 2012 9:25 pm Just read it. I can see why people are mad about it, but the plot groundwork is not even done being laid. I think there's some major twists to come. I really fell in love with the characters in Avengers Academy. Gonna stick around for a while.
