EGOs #8 was OK, but the series has lost its novelty a bit somehow, and the long gaps between issues arent helping. One to pull out again once this arc’s finsihed, I think,
JLA #3001 was firing on all cylinders though, and the absolute standout this week. Giffen and DeMatteis have an absolute knack of making the dumbest most repetitive jokes laugh-out-loud funny. This week’s highlight was Guy Gardner (now re-cloned in a female body) spouting female-empowerment lines and then second guessing herself. There are a couple of bonus FAQ pages in the back for new readers that absolutely cracked me up too.
Howard Porter’s managing a few facial expressions worthy of Maguire too.
I agree with Robert that its a mess, but its a good one in my opinion. (And I’m kind of pleased that Booster and Blue Beetle haven’t taken over the book, this isn’t a tired old re-tread at all.)
I also picked up the Tales from India Humble Bundle this week, on the strength of Grant Morrison’s involvement. Hmm… Avatarex was incredibly thin - ten pages with 1-3 panels each, and little more than an introduction to the main character. I’ve got all ten issues of “18 Days” digitally now though, so that’s worth the price alone if the first one was anything to go by. And some of the other comics might be good if I get around to reading them on my computer.
A Force #2 was pretty decent. Nebula is quite different from what I expected.
Cyborg#1 - competent and very polished art but nothing to really write home about yet. I’m looking forwards to seeing how Walker handles Vic, his interviews pointed to some pretty interesting developments.
Now go and buy JLA #3001 - it rocks!
