#2186

He ought to write a Lex Luthor story.


#2187

I can’t decide on my favourite cover yet, I’ll leave it to someone else to nominate.


#2188

The Wildstorm cover gets it, for me.

Followed by the Thor and Cap covers.


#2189

The cover for the second Wild Storm trade is very cool as well.


#2190

Wait … are those stickers?

P.s. the Superman cover is my fave


#2191

That Kick Ass cover gets it for me. Quite nice.


#2192

Kick-Ass. There’s something about JRJR’s figure work that always stands out from the crowd.

Thor as runner up.


#2193

A big week for me this week.

Justice League: No Justice #2
Superman Special #1
Wild Storm #13
Kick-Ass #4
X-Men Red #4


#2194

when I picked up my books at lunch, I flipped thru Avengers #2 and then put it back on the shelf. It seemed all over the place and I hated the scenes with dumb She Hulk.


#2195

PIcked up a few things digitally tonight, really looking forward to A Walk Through Hell from Ennis


#2196

Interested in how you find that one.


#2197

I just finished the first 2 issues of No Justice and the spoiler at the end of #2 might make some people happy.
SPOILER###

Vril Dox is back and he is wearing a L.E.G.I.O.N armband


#2198

Keep you posted

Jimmy’s Bastards # 8 this week as well

Good week for Ennis fans


#2199

Oh? What’s this?

I picked up the second World of Tanks book from him and PJ Holden last week. Good stuff.


#2200

Oh, there’s a second? Will have to look out for that.


#2201

What a great week for comics.

Justice League: No Justice #2 - This book is a great action packed ride with plenty of twists and turns. Loving the writing and art. I don’t know much about Vril Dox but it’ll be exciting to see where it takes the story. It’s starting to become more obvious where the DC Nation #0 story fits in.

Kick-Ass #4 - @Mark_Millar sure knows how to keep things in suspense. Love the turn in this book and the cliffhangers just keep killing me. @JohnRomita seems to be in his element again too. Patience Lee is such a great character that she has me saying, “Dave who?”

Superman Special #1 - Now that’s a send off for a creative team. They took one of the best stories of this run, Dinosaur Island, and put a nice little bow on it to tie everything up. Such a great, action packed story with a heartfelt ending. There were two fun additional tales too. One with @bryanhitch on art which gives us a reminder of how much the Kents mean to who Superman is and possibly introduces that they died when Clark was still young in this continuity. I also love the fun tale with art by Kaare Andrews starring the Atomic Skull.

Wild Storm #13 - I always feel like there’s a wink and a nudge that I’m missing the significance of in this book. It is interesting that they are starting to reveal more about the Kheran origins of a lot of what’s going on.

X-Men Red #4 - It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed an X-Men book this much. The team is perfect with a mission that is classic but new. Due to upcoming events including the return of Logan/Wolverine, I can’t imagine we get to keep them for long. I’ll enjoy it while it lasts though. There was also a nice little cameo by Forge


#2202

The Wild Storm was good this week. Moving lots of individual story strands forward while still giving us several meaty scenes in their own right (including a great, well-choreographed action/fight sequence).

We’re really starting to see the payoff from all the groundwork laid in the early issues now.


#2203

He did actually get a second Seaguy miniseries out in 2009, three issues, called Slaves of Mickey Eye. It’s never been collected.

At various points a third mini has been mooted, I think Cameron Stewart has even said he’s received a script. There doesn’t seem to be much impetus to get it moving though.

I had always assumed they would wait until the third series was finished and then collect all nine issues in one volume.


#2204

I picked up the latest Batman, and it didn’t dissuade me from my plan to drop it after the wedding. The story was structured in an interesting way but I didn’t get the Booster characterization at all—it felt way off. I guess it’s hard for some smart people to write dumb characters.


#2205

Yeah, it’s good. Ennis does a good job of blurring the line between “goodies” and “baddies”. It’s an issue of setup but the German and Russian cast are very likeable. Note, German rather than Nazi - that’s a strength of Ennis generally has in these types of stories, fleshing troops out on all sides as human beings rather than caricatures.
