    September 28, 2011 7:57 pm Sorry to be so negative but Superman#1 was very disappointing. This comic could have been written in the 1970s or 80s or 90s... nothing "nu" about it. Tons of text--which could be a good thing!--but in this case all boring. @thebouv is right too, they force "hip" tech related references at every opportunity ("Pics", "Vids", "the Web", "Tweet", etc., etc.).... please DC.... this comic could have been anything! Instead it's a boring retread--good news for all of the people complaining that "their Superman" is being taken away.
    September 26, 2011 10:22 pm Preview image and solicit show Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster arriving in this issue. Should be cool! For whatever reason, iFanboy hasn't yet posted the cover image. I haven't seen the main cover yet, but the variant has Battra on it.
    September 12, 2011 5:16 pm Aaaaaaaw yeaaah! X-men in Space! ...I'm in!
    September 8, 2011 1:50 pm This is the first X-23 book I hae ever read. In fact, I think it's the first story with X-23 that I've ever read.... in fact (again), I only bought it because the cover is so awesome and I love the Thing. My compliments to Marjorie Liu though as she is rolling out a very interesting FF/Sci-Fi-ish story. The dialogue was very well written, and her Spider-Man got a good solid LOL out of me too. I'll be sticking around for the rest of the arc for sure. Thanks Miss Liu!
    September 7, 2011 12:23 am Wondering if that bastard Takahashi will find a way to "use" Godzilla against Detective Sato, or if Sato will find a way to finish off Takahashi and his criminal empire first! Looked like Sato was starting to corner him last issue.
    September 7, 2011 12:20 am I liked the last issue too. With Dr. Doom AND Magneto in the same issue, I couldn't pass it up. This is the first book by Victor Gischler that I've read, and I was pleasantly surprised. The hijinks between Thing and Wolverine were pretty funny, and the setting is awesome. Just what I was looking for.... hate that $3.99 price tag though.
    August 25, 2011 4:01 pm My apologies, I intended to score the Art at 2 or 3 (2.5?), not 4 and I couldn't find any kind of editing feature.
    August 23, 2011 11:40 pm I'm banking on a mid-air monster battle this issue, as Rodan screams over Germany toward France--where Battra is just transforming into her monstrous flying form. Counting on you Santos!
    August 23, 2011 2:02 pm It's Godzilla! AND ... It's for a charity! You can't lose, people!
    August 11, 2011 3:18 pm This issue does a good job explaining the events leading directly up to the sinking of Western Europe.  But, I felt like it failed to develop any of the cool stuff from the first issue (the shocking events in Europe, the tragedy of losing Mera, the heinousness of creating the geo-weapon).  Instead, Aquaman #3  rehashes and over-explains all of the events presented in #1, as if readers can't think critically about the material.  It seemed like all the excruciating explainations were focused on making sure everyone got it and understood the "cool", "edgy" implications for the characters rather than moving the story forward.  In the end though, I suppose there is only so much "story" that can be told outside of the main event book.

    ... I'm still holding out hope that Gorilla Grodd is going to crash the party in the main FlashPoint book!
