Kinda all over the place right now. Started curse of the white knight before I went back and started white knight. As usual a lot of old Wildstorm, DMZ, and punishing myself with new 52 Stormwatch.
Today is an extremely exciting new comics day for me! Black Adam starts, Fables continues, The Flash is awesome, and Perry White gets a new short story and one shot remix!
Read some of Kesel’s Batman and Superman - World’s Finest.
Kesel is a really good writer and makes some astute observations about the contrast between the two characters.
I finished Welcome to Tranquility last week. Gail Simone is very talented writing and the art of Paul Pelletier is great when you can get it. This book is funny and slightly ridiculous, but with a lot of action and character development.
I’ve been reading Delano’s run on Hellblazer and just started the Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes) 2006 run. So far both have been great; Jaime and Constantine are definetly becoming two of my favorite characters!
Delano’s Hellblazer is good. One of the few (and possibly only) mainstream comics from the 80s that tackled Thatcherism while most other comics of the era dealt mainly with politics in relation to the Cold War.
So far new 52 Stormwatch isn’t bad as I expected it to be, but Midnighter’s costume is never going to win me over. I hated it in Grifter and I hate it here.
While Tom Mandrake does great work in the Firestorm series, Richard Rayner draws my fav version of the fire elemental redesign,
All of my unread notifications, going back to April. Oops.
Bailed on Stormwatch, couldn’t look at Midnighter anymore, plus he did Jenny wrong. Too much fighting in that book
Batman/Superman and The Authority was good as long as Midnighter kept poking Batman, then I noticed they were the only 2 people talking and clean cut Manchester Black just don’t look right.
