    Animal Man #1 Cover by Travel Foreman

    Before this issue (outside of 52) I have never read an Animal Man comic. Not even the Grant Morrison run,…

    April 24, 2013 12:14 am I was and am a huge fan of Young Justice and Green Lantern, and I loved the original Teen Titans cartoon. That being said, I went into this thinking, "Okay. It's not Teen Titans, it's its own thing. Same voices, different tone." And I really liked it. Right off the top, they had me at Raven's dry yet emotional delivery of "Don't give up, Butterbean...!" In fact, Raven has some of the best lines and jokes in the show so far. From her trying to enjoy the MLPesque show, to her playing duck duck goose and enjoying Robin's suffering. Cyborg and Beast Boy's friendship is great, especially the pie song. I know they're really trying to make Starfire not understand Earth customs, and they need to make sure they don't do that too often, but it kind of plays here. Her balloon animals and pin the tail on the donkey jokes were pretty funny. Not sure if I like the new Robin (he was always my favorite), but I'm sure I'll warm up to him as well. And the little DC universe nods were cool too, from the plushies of Batman, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Joker, to the Bat-O's cereal, the Darkseid stuffed animal, and the birthday cards to Cyborg from Superman and Batman. I think it's goofy and fun. It'll definitely never be like Teen Titans, but that's fine. That show ended and it was great. I'm excited to see some more of the show.

    October 21, 2012 11:21 pm I kind of miss old Pym. I don't like new jerk Pym, as funny as the shrinking bomb thing was.
    October 14, 2012 5:10 pm Okay, this has to be my favorite stand alone episode so far besides Emperor Stark and the Private War of Doctor Doom. Wish Spidey could have done a bit more fighting, but it's always nice to remember he's a smart guy under that mask as well. If I could have a spin-off show with these guys as the New Avengers, I'd watch it.
    October 11, 2012 1:28 am Amazing job Scott! You write an excellently creepy Joker. All of the references to past stories made me want to start reading all my old Joker trades. Can't wait to see Joker come out swinging for Batman and his gang in the coming months!
    September 29, 2012 11:04 pm I laughed so hard whenever that was said. Loved Guy in this episode. I agree with @mgriffith though about the Manhunter fight. Seemed a little drawn out and then they easily took apart the Manhunters like it was nothing. I get overcharging one of them, but then just hitting one with a bat? Especially after all of them got hit by tons of weight with those booby traps? Some really great broments with Guy and Hal though. Also, I might like this Carol better than the one in the comics. This one seems more understanding. Loved when Guy mentioned Vanissa got "around" when she suddenly appeared on the news maybe an hour later. I was just thinking "How the heck did she get over there so fast?" Can't wait to see more Anti-Monitor and what Hal as an honor guard member will do.
    September 29, 2012 10:56 pm Glad to have Young Justice back! New episode did no disappoint. Loved seeing the memorial area and seeing Jason was Robin as well as a YJ member. Also, some great (if not predictable) stuff with non-clone Roy. There has to be a better name for him. Luthor was awesome as he just stood there while Roy took on Mercy. He just mocked him and stood there like he was in control the whole time. Also loved the bridal shower. "I'm doomed, aren't I?" Looks like everyone is out for vengeance this season. Sportsmaster. Cheshire. Original Roy. Can't wait for next week!
    September 10, 2012 3:31 am The episode was good, but I think Hank's transition from pacifist to "let's go kick some ass!" suffered from it just being one episode. Yes, that's how it was handled in the original series, but this whole pacifist Hank is different from the comic form (at least from the first 30 issues I've read in the Avengers omnibus) and I would have liked to see Hank's perception of how his methods aren't working, so he does need to take a more active approach. It's kind of handled here, but it still felt kind of abrupt to me, since I really liked this universes version of Hank. But, overall, I still dug the episode.
