Giving out Halloween Candy

Most of the kids were polite even if they were excited to get candy but a few stood out.

I saw at least a couple girls wearing "boys costumes." One was Darth Vader without the mask and one was Ralphel (TMNT.) I also had a Batman but no clowns. A Skeleton gave me his mom's catalogue for Christmas stuff. The Cowboy was one of the nicest although most of them said thank you.

One was a little Iron Man that was the last of the group of six kids that arrived at my door. I was making sure I gave them all the same amount and reached a girl before him. He started yelling:" GIVE IT TO ME !!!" Over and over.

I told him to wait so I could make sure they all got the same but he wouldn't stop until I surrendered the candy. I don't think he said thank you.

A little girl some time later beamed when she saw what candy I gave her. "I like those !"

But I still have tons of candy but at least there were some memorable moments.

This isn't quite right

When the question of Jason's "magical powers" was asked this was an answer I saw that was given. I don't have an account on tumblr so I'm not going to respond there by I'll say my piece here.

The Entry I mentioned

This is the one that says Jason has magical powers. Unfortunately someone circled the fact Jason has black hair and blue eyes (that's not new) but you can still read it. Well if that's the case they have the wrong cause for Jason's magic.

Short Review: Blue Beetle #2

I got the digital comic to work but it's surprising how little I recall from the previous issues.

Building up a Rogue's Gallery

The big names all of their share of villains but it's not that easy for everyone to have well known enemies that are recognized as their villains.

Snyder Bat Event with more Owls

I don't remember if I commented on this before but I'm disappointed.

Trying out new books?

I've been thinking about trying out lesser known titles. The problem with that is you never know if it's your taste until you read it. Which means potentially wasting money (I'd probably get digital) and trusting the summary. Maybe by choosing a writer I'm familiar with?

Digital Comics Problem

I'm trying to download Blue Beetle but the screen keeps getting frozen. It might be awhile before I'm able to do a review. I'm hoping this isn't a persistent problem. I only get BB in digital form since I'm not sure if I'm sticking with it (I didn't remember it was out until I got an e-mail.) I get RHATO in physical form too it just takes longer to get those issues.

Black Mask and Symbolism

After visiting a message board recently the subject of probing deeper into the meaning of Black Mask...uh mask and the symbolism came up. I thought that would be a fun subject to talk about and if that meshes with the current portrayal.

Nightwing Spoilers

I have some concerns with some similarities. Correct me if I'm wrong with my Nightwing impressions since I don't read the current series.

Wonder Woman #7 & 8

I may wait a while before I get any more issues. It depends on my budget for the holidays.

Short Review: Wonder Woman 5 & 6

I fell behind on reviewing these but I already caught up with the series.

I just got my TPB

I was waiting for a trade and I noticed a Rebirth issue in it. Is that a thing for all pre-Rebirth books?

Happy Wonder Woman Day !

Celebrate the awesomeness of Diana and her world today ! There's some Q and A going on that you can find information on DC Comics facebook page. Or go here.

I looked at another DC Character Guide

It's the latest to be released that brings up Rebirth stuff and since I'm used flipping through Batman guides I forgot to look at other non-Batman related characters. 

Damian has two pages, I couldn't find Tim who should be next to Jason, Cassandra Cain has a few paragraphs based on her Orphan persona. 

Jason has a little more but for some reason it mentions things from Tynion? It says that he has magical (or mystical) powers he got from the Lazarus Pit (what?) Then lists Midas as the Outlaws enemy. The guy that showed in one issue?

How do comics go bi-weekly?

I'm wondering how much a comic series has to make for DC to have it go from monthly to bi-weekly.  Because I'm reading two ongoing titles and it's uncertain how long I'll stick with one. That means I'll be down to a single title. It's a series I love and would be more than happy to read twice a month.

Rebirth Bizarro action figure?

I'm still not at the point I'd look for one of the old figures to have one to put in my RHATO display but I can say I'm definitely a fan of the way Lobdell is writing him so far. I never really got the appeal of Bizarro before. The backwards talk could be annoying and sometimes confusing with writers going back and forth with what his meaning was. I think I'm going to like him a lot since he's being played more seriously. Which means at some point I will want figure.

When that happens I think I'd want Bizarro done in Dexter Soy's style. Putting in the little Superman accessory would be a must though.

DC January 2017 Solicits

I guess February is the big "next wave" for Rebirth?

One potential spoiler for RHATO ahead in the solicit.

RHATO makes top ten?

This surprises me since it's currently number seven on the DC digital list. But I guess this is just the sales for the physical copies. Great news regardless as this was a very emotional issue with plenty of depth.

This is a thing?

Apparently there's someone that's pretending to be Scott Lobdell telling people to illegally download comics and doing posts to make fun of him. I didn't think anyone wanted to waste time being so petty but I guess there's always someone. I have writers I don't like but I just try to avoid things they write and do reviews. I don't get this train of thought.

Odyessy of the Amazons Mini Series

I wonder if this will get into the Bana Mighdall. Sounds like a nice change of pace to focus on the Amazons themselves before Diana is in the picture.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #3 VOL. 2

Last issue Jason and Artemis met, fought, sort of teamed up and found Black Masks' weapon. Where do things go from here?

Comic Fan Frustrations

You ever want to talk about a comic or see what the general opinion is but not enough people are talking about it?

Short Reviews: Wonder Woman #3 and #4

Back to the Cheetah plot before going back to the origin.

Still a haunting image

One that's very fitting for this month. I think it's supposed to take place in October too.

Batman Legacy

Some thought on this being brought up at the Batman panel.

Saturday, October 8, 2016

Tomasi is writing Super Sons?

I loved him in GLC but I never could enjoy how he handles the Waynes. Maybe Jon will balance Damian out better? I'll wait to see if I still want to buy this title. Hopefully their will be a selection of new books in the next wave. If Blue Beetle doesn't pan out I'll have one title left.

Wonder Woman #1 and #2

Diana decides to look for answers and find her way home. Then we see how she first met Steve.

Nightwing at odds with Batman

Nothing of interest in the Bat family panel although the mention of this trope got me thinking.

Short Review: Wonder Woman Rebirth #1

I thought I might try this series out.

Present Ideas

I'm putting together ideas for presents early because of budget concerns.

The Black Mask Plan?

The solicits for December gave us a better idea what he has in mind so this is just me trying to piece it all together. Lots of speculation and talking about the story so far.

October Picks: Booster Gold Dead Ted

I love October and there's a few comics I love reading around this time of year. I haven't read many horror comics so most of theses are superheroes choices.
