January 15, 2013 11:49 am Still surprised how much love Mazzuchelli is getting. I think is just disappoints me more that he isn't doing more work. Year One and Daredevil: Reborn were both milestone books for me.
January 10, 2013 2:40 pm Glad to see Breyfogle getting some love. My thought earlier about Mazzuchelli was that I would like to see an artist tell more than a story. He was there for Y1 and that's it. I would've loved to see more but that wasn't the case. I want to see the origin on one arc and then an arc about the Mad Hatter next. I'm just greedy like that. I can't believe Davis's run on Detective was only seven issues? It felt longer, in a good way. More impactful.
January 10, 2013 11:44 am I liked Mazzuchelli, but to be an artist for a character it would have to last longer than four issues. Tim Sale is great, but all he did was the miniseries. My favorite artist has to be someone that delivered month in and out. Alan Davis is the runner up with Norm Breyfogle being the winner.
October 6, 2012 3:19 pm I was actually disappointed in the show? The reason? The ending where Wally's makes his accusations against Aqualad. It felt to me that they were stretching things. Or like the writers gave too much away when Artemis went undercover and now they're trying to make up for it. It felt like they were jumping the shark. And the stuff with Mal? Who cares. It's the first time I've seen this kid out of the cave and say more than one sentence and now they try to do a human interest piece with him? Not sure I get it. And Blue Beetle and Impulse annoy me as well. Won't go out and say I hated this ep, cause it's so good every week that I think that is impossible to do, but was let down.
September 29, 2012 3:11 pm Was expecting much more, maybe too much. I wanted all my questions answered at once. It was kinda discerting that Speedy and Red Arrow have the same voice. I understand why but it just threw me off. It seems like the people in the biggest trouble are Aqualad. Everyone is gunning for him. And why even bother with the Superboy thing at school. That seemed like total filler. And where did Nightwing disappear to? My biggest question is in the monument room, where they had the image of Artemis is an image of Robin. Jason Todd, I assume?
August 28, 2012 12:06 pm I think it's already common knowledge that Johns(and Ivan Reis) are leaving Aquaman after or around #16. While this book seems like a desperate attempt by DC to prop up Justice League to Avenger-like status(especially in light of how Justice League International flopped), it does have me intrigued cause of the people involved. But it brings up other questions, mainly will Finch stay with his Bat-book? And are all these changes that DC is announcing(possible Snyder-Lee Superman book) a reaction to Marvel NOW!? I just don't like the name. it is TOO similar to the flagship title. But I'll probably get the book, but still wait to see the "ripple" effects on other titles.
August 4, 2012 4:06 pm Is it just me or is it everytime I see Aja'a art, I think of David Mazzuchelli and how much I miss him.
July 7, 2012 2:37 pm Agree on the JR SR comparison and I also agree with the comment about the empty place mat. It's just a very Norman Rockwell vibe to it. And no other words than the title to clutter the art.
June 9, 2012 2:49 pm For me, George Perez is still that JIm Lee-star. I'll follow Perez to ANY book. Can't say the same about Lee. I know Art Adams had that potential years ago, but never pushed thru. As for the Nickelback of artists, someone who has a following, has a name but people see him or her as a poser? Hard question. Is it the same as not liking an artist? If that was the case, the first name I could think of is Al Milgrom. But that's old school. Would have to get back to you on that. Maybe John Romita Jr.?
June 9, 2012 2:41 pm Another awesome ep! I was worried that Artemis might actually be dead, but when they introduce the scene at the beginning, I thought I was safe especially with as much time was left in the episode. The thing I wasn't suspecting was the Aqualad reveal. Good show to even keep Batman and Aquaman in the dark, but how did Nightwing not tell Zatanna? This sets up so much more, like Red Arrow and Cheshire coming in and taking a more active role. The Superboy-Ms. Martian heart to heart was long overdue. Was Artemis and Kid Flash being "retired" part of Nightwing's plans all along? Lagoon and Superboy was good too. I'm beginning to think this series is better than JL. A question. Can anyone tell me who Miles Caufield is? I'm drawing a blank on him every week. Is it Icon? And the scariest thing? I didn't hear "...a brand new episode of Young Justice next week...". Is the season over or just a break? That was the worst news of all!
