March 2, 2020 11:58 am I keep hearing the "They're bad guys" refrain trotted out in regards to the X-Men books here which I feel is... wrong? Like, really wrong. Watch a long-oppressed minority rise up and extricate themselves from an endless cycle of violence and just labeling them bad guys feels... gross. There's certainly discomfort to be had here, and a whole issue contemplating a mutant religion and depicting a ritualistic suicide and rebirth definitely gets that across, but just declaring "they're bad guys" feels like it sucks away all the nuance that is being woven into these series right now.
June 17, 2019 10:08 am My takeaway for Lois showing up in the Talia dress was: just like Jimmy showing up clearly having had other adventures, Lois showing up in the Talia dress was meant to showcase the same. She had infiltrated dressed as Talia or something. I think that's all it was, and I doubt Bendis will feel the need to explain it further.
May 8, 2018 10:20 am The Mark Russell story in Action Comics Special 1 took place back before Luthor was President in the comics. It says something to the effect of "Years Ago..." at the beginning of it. That said, it was definitely very on the nose and Studio 60-esque.
February 20, 2018 1:56 pm Just wanted to call out the great choice made for the intro song this week, given the Pick(s).
January 23, 2017 10:15 am With respect to the shorter arcs (like Green Lanterns and Batman's most recent entry), the rumor is DC is looking to do just that in many of their books. I'm 100% behind this. 6-issue arcs way too often feel padded out, and it's much easier to keep artistic consistency on a 2-4 issue arc rather than 6 issues.
November 14, 2016 4:53 pm Also love Detective Comics. A Batman team book feels like it's filling a very specific niche in the Gotham line, rather than just being another Batman book. I feel like Tynion has a much better handling on writing younger characters and team dynamics than many writers these days, and Barrows and Martinez are doing some great work. Other than the Monsters crossover, this has been one of my favorite books from new DC.
April 14, 2016 12:06 pm Vision as Clark Griswold is the best, most unexpected comparison I have heard. It's BRILLIANT. It's the most banal horror book (in the best way)!
August 17, 2015 12:38 pm Re: Peter Panzerfaust - I always love the "Wait, Was This The Last Issue?" Segment and its inevitable conclusion.
August 3, 2015 12:02 pm Just came here to say the same thing. Hop back on, Conor! Glad to see you all enjoyed the art craziness on this month's Batgirl Annual. That's how Annuals should be done now, I think.
