Re: Comics are Awesome III

Going back and reading some of Sparky's comments about Green Lanterns #7-14 since I've just read the tpb for the first time. I've pulled some excerpts from your reviews and had a few thoughts. Green Lanterns 1-7 Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz take center stage of this title as the two newest Green Lante...

Re: Movies are awesome

I do like the ending, and it feels like there's some genuine emotional payoff between the two "sisters". I like how determined Natasha is to save Taskmaster rather than simply kill her. There are some good moments at the end, so I'm thinking the story in the middle is the problem, with having to int...

Re: Movies are awesome

Black Widow - meh. It finally hit Disney+ and was just ok, kinda sloppy and not a great focus on the titular character despite a lot of pretenses. There's not much in the center of the story, so they have David Harbour do his best to pick it up, but as fun as he is, they don't give his character en...

Re: TV shows are awesome

I always chuckle at the Watcher's oath, because in those 60s FF comics where he's introduced, he's always breaking his oath. Of course it's always in a technical way where he can claim that he didn't, but he's constantly helping the FF stop Galactus or whatever. The tv version did pretty well up unt...

Re: Fall 2021 Hauls!!!

Found the tpb of Green Lanterns vol 2: "the Phantom Lantern" at Ollie's for $3.99. I had no interest in this Jessica Cruz/Simon Baz GL series when it was first published at $4 an issue, but $4 for 8 issues is a different story, particularly with no good current GL series on the shelves. I miss my mo...

Finishing Batman #76: The Man of 100 Murders! Writer: Bill Finger Art: Jim Mooney I love the splash page with that dark city filled with lighted windows behind Batman, who is moving intently at the reader, cape draped over one shoulder, and firing a gun. Of course it's not the real Batman (and his t...

Re: Retro Comics are Awesome

I've bought maybe a dozen Kyle Rayner Green Lantern issues out of the dollar bin at my local comic shop, because I've read so little of that era. I don't think I missed much, in all honesty. Kyle's fine as a character, but the book just doesn't feel quite "complete" with no Corps and limited outer s...

Continuing Batman #76 The Penguin's Fabulous Fowls! Writer: Edmond Hamilton Pencils: Bob Kane, Lew Sayre Schwartz Inks: Charles Paris This is certainly a Penguin story that indulges in a unique variation on the formula. The Penguin is released from jail and claims yet again that he's going straight,...

Batman #76 April-May 1953 The Danger Club Writer: Edmond Hamilton Pencils: Bob Kane Inks: Charles Paris I hate to start out with a negative review, but here we ago again with the themed clubs in Gotham, where members are being killed one by one and the culprit turns out to be one of the members who...

Re: TV shows are awesome

I thought the Thor episode was fun, but was about two minutes of story based on the joke "to stop Thor, call his mother" dragged out to twenty. I was honestly getting a bit bored of it by the end. The Ultron episode was much more interesting, though I'm not sure I buy Ultron killing Thanos that easi...
