Favorite Origin of a Superhero Name

I love that Booster got so nervous that he accidentally said his football nickname then the president cuts him off before he can completely correct himself. Booster just decides to own the mistake and the rest is history.

Rip Hunter suspects something?

Granted Convergence seems to have been retconned some and technically Rip should know about WW/SM happening elsewhere before. But during the two part Booster Gold Convergence special he seems to have some theories he doesn't get to voice. I know I mentioned this before but I really feel this loose end needs to be addressed.

Amazon Sisters

I've always been a sucker for family stuff whether the family in question is blood or not. With Amazons this bond is pretty sacred especially between certain Amazons.While the Finch run has it's problems I did like this exchange:

Sisters are equal, they look after each other and when needed keep the other in line. Donna Troy was especially close to Diana (not sure where the current story is going with that) and basically was her sister in all respects. Diana reaches out to others whether they are Amazons or not to offer sisterhood. I liked the bond with Artemis always calling her little sister (*1) then I got to Simone having Diana say she doesn't even know if Artemis is her friend. What? Being a sister is supposed to mean something, it says you have faith in the other person and Diana apparently doesn't even trust that their close?

*1 This amused me because I'm not sure if the "little" had to do with Diana being younger--which I assumed she wasn't--Artemis being taller or her just teasing Diana.

Harper Row Despised?

I don't go on boards often but I thought she was a little more popular because of Snyder. I can understand getting annoyed with her after the thing in BaRE but is she truly that hated at large? I haven't read much of her, the twist I read about is grating though I'm mostly indifferent to her at the moment. I heard someone say she was too perfect so I guess that's the main problem? Beyond the "ideal sidekick" bull.

Animated Green Lantern Clips

I laughed far too much over this.

Guy doesn't get much love.

Predictions for Books

How I think I'll feel about the titles on my pulls list.

The romantic interest

I've recently heard about two characters getting together with very little build up and it made me think of something I noticed in comics for awhile.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past

I enjoyed the last two trades I just haven't gotten around to reading more of these. Which is good because I have some books to savor during my gap in collecting before the new ongoing titles.

A Few Other DC Solicits for September

Not as much as I was hoping for but I'm always glad to see what's coming out.

Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #6

I got this in the mail, I forgot about it in the rush of the Rebirth. Anyway this is the last issue of the mini series.


Artemis vs. Starfire

Starfire was always a great warrior, she's beaten Donna in hand-to-hand in the past. I'm not sure where Artemis would be in the fighting scale but I was happy to find this. Can't wait until more Artemis action. It's only a little more than a month away.

Not a public speaker, Artemis?

So Jason gets nervous when talking in front of people and Artemis does this.

A few early solicits

Because I always get excited to see what's coming up even if none of my books are listed yet.


Which title should I try out?

I've been thinking about getting a series to have something to read in between my gap without an ongoing title. I have three choices.

Get someone else to write them

Because writing messages for the boys didn't work out so well in BFTC. Normally I'd suggest Alfred but he has been jerky lately.

What does this mean for RHATO VOL. 2 ?

Now that Red Hood/Arsenal has wrapped up there's some questions for how this affects the new series. I suspect Titans will ignore everything much like Titans Hunt has been. Still, how will the ending affect the bat family ? What about the Joker factor  from DUR #1 ?


Just waiting for Booster and Rip

Fans: This is awesome ! Wally is going to fix time !
Me: (Stares at my Booster Gold books.) Fix time. You don't say.

Top Ten Headache Inducing things from DITF

Death in the Family isn't what I'd call a good story. There are a lot of moments which don't make sense especially when you think past the "that's weird" bit. This list talks about things that have no logic, are dumb and a few big plot holes.

July Variants

Don't they usually release these on Friday? Why are the solicits late?

A tiring and sad weekend

I've been working and it's been wiping me out lately. So I may or may not be on here for a bit. I might write about the solicits when they come out or try out another title. But at the moment that doesn't matter. While working I also heard what happened in Orlando during my break and there's a sense of surrealism when things like this happens. At least for me. I never want to believe things like this can happen even if it's sadly been recurring more often and it's takes a while for it to sink in. My thoughts are with the victims, their families and friends.

Red Hood and the Outlaws Rebirth Signed

I was skimming on online stores and I noticed this. According to this Lobdell actually charges less than most writers. But if you don't have time to go to cons or are too shy it's a good idea.

Things I heard about the Rebirth Week 2

From a few people in passing.


Red Hood/Arsenal Series Overview Part 1

A look over the whole series to see what worked, what didn't and a few things that stood out. This is getting long so I'm splitting this up. These are sort of a review and meta in one.

Red Hood/Arsenal #13

It's been an interesting journey to see Jason Todd and Roy Harper's friendship throughout two series. I don't know how everything can be wrapped up in this issue but it should be emotional nonetheless. On a side note I've been seeing so many ads for Rebirth I kept thinking the next series was starting up instead of this issue.

Things I've heard about Rebirth

Or to be more specifically what I've heard about the titles that have been released so far. I haven't read many spoilers so this is just the bare bones tidbits I've heard.

Last Week before Rebirth Books

I have some mixed feelings on Red Hood/Arsenal and Green Lanterns Corps Edge of Oblivion ending. While I'm sure things won't totally alienating once their, uh...rebirth-ed, it still feels like the end of an era. 

I usually like to get my GL books in trade but I missed them enough to follow the corps during their journey. I won't be getting the Hal Jordon title, to be honest I'm not sure why Guy and John can't have their own series again. For awhile we had a lot of Lantern books and it feels odd to quit after following them for a year. ...Now that I think about it I don't think GLCEOO or Lost Army ever explained how they got into this predicament in the first place. Which will make this storyline be more than a little pointless if it's not mentioned in the last issue...or where ever this tale truly ends.

Red Hood/Arsenal is going to be a bigger gut punch because I've been following their story since the new 52 began. Many writers attempt to build buddy dynamics or bromances but few succeed at making them feel natural. This was one of the few that worked and was one of the greatest things about this and RHATO VOL. 1. Jason Todd and Roy Harper are parting ways with Jason going on to Red Hood and the Outlaws VOL. 2 and Roy going to the Titans. It's doubtful if Titans will ever mention this friendship and it's sad to think they might end on bad terms.

"Mego" Styled New Teen Titans

Of Cyborg, Starfire, Raven and Nightwing. Starfires' eyebrows remind me too much of her sister.

Where are the Time Masters?

Given the messed up state of the timeline this is a very worrying question.

Jackass Heroes

I know I'm over thinking this but I tend to do that.

60s' Catwoman--Catwomen Figures

Neither are marked as Catwoman but it's obvious they both are.

Is this why Tim has been "demoted"?

It looks like Batman isn't too pleased with Tim.
