June 29, 2014 7:41 pm It was Flash Gordon by a mile for me this week. Holy crap that book is fun. I can't stop smiling when I read it.
April 1, 2014 8:58 am Somehow, Jeff Parker has made me a fan of an Aquaman book, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. I couldn't get in to the Johns stuff at all because it felt too self-serious and defensive. But Parker's knocking it out of the park. In addition to the solid character stuff going on, issue 29 felt like an homage to the Brave and the Bold cartoon version of the character. The cartoon version always came across as underwater Hercules to me, so having those two fight seems deliberate. There's also that great opening line...
September 2, 2013 4:45 pm To be fair, I haven't been reading Trinity War, so my judgment of its quality could be way off. But the more I hear about it and Forever Evil, the more I think just re-reading Morrison and Quitely's JLA: Earth 2 will be enough for me.
September 2, 2013 1:02 am Well this is a bummer. But totally understandable. Hopefully the staff writers can find new gigs soon.
August 21, 2013 10:49 pm Finally caught up on this series. Never thought I'd enjoy a licensed property comic as much as I enjoy this. So much damn fun.
August 14, 2013 12:47 pm If you buy it digitally, Jason Latour's Silver Surfer backup was great too.
August 14, 2013 12:45 pm I thought this was pretty solid.
August 12, 2013 3:11 pm I swore off event books even from creators I like, but I'm honestly really enjoying what Hickman's doing in the Avengers books. Hopefully he can avoid a lot of the traps other writers fall into.
August 9, 2013 1:52 am I will say, though, I think I'm enjoying this more with Arcudi on scripting duties. Not that the Allie issues were bad, but Arcudi's voice has become such an essential part of the BPRD books.
August 9, 2013 1:47 am I love that they're playing with the idea that in this post-apocalyptic world, someone like Abe would be seen as a messianic figure.
