A quick look around the racks this week reveals the following:
*Spoilers lie ahead*
All-Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder #5: 😦 I won’t mock the unfathomable lateness. I won’t deride the horrific Wonder Woman characterization. I won’t beg that this series be put out of its misery once and for all. No, scratch that last one. Please, please cancel this series. I respect Jim Lee. I respect Frank Miller, or rather, I respected him before he seemed to go a little bit crazy (sometime between Yellow Bastard and Hell and Back, if I had to peg it down). Cancel this monstrosity before it does any more damage.
Ultimates vol. 2, #13: 🙂 If it has to end, it might as well end with everyone fighting across seventeen thousand pages.
Mighty Avengers #3: 🙂 A few random thoughts while reading this comic (which, as indicated by the happy face, I did enjoy):
- Shouldn’t there be a clearer chain-of-command on the helicarrier? Hill gets bonked on her head and they’re all running around looking for a level ten agent that they don’t even think exists. Apparently, SHIELD’s rank structure is as follows:
Everyone else in SHIELD
- Tigra? Isn’t she half-cat or something? Does this not border on bestiality, Dr. Pym?
- How many times has a SHIELD Helicarrier crashed recently? Wolverine: Enemy of the State has one go down. In the Civil War/Spider-Woman issue of New Avengers one goes down, and now this. You’d think there might be some sort of risk assessment.
- Oh, how I wish Iron Man was still using armour like that.
Justice League of America #9: 😦 You know how some comics just make perfect sense, and are wonderfully entertaining all on their own? This is the antithesis of those comics. I think Brad Meltzer has gone out of his way to ensure that this issue is as obtuse as possible. Read Justice League Adventures instead.
Satan’s Sodomy Baby: 🙂 Heh.
