I took advantage of Cyber Monday Sales

I only spent a few cents on a few comics and a couple dollars on some trades. While shopping I realized how much I really wish we had more well written bat family interactions because I brought a book I'm pretty sure won't have any just to see them together.

Figuarts Chewbaca and Anakin Skywalker (EP. 2)

There's some good likeness in the sculpts although Chewie looks a little short. It's hard to tell how taller Anakin is compared to Obi-Wan but he's taller than the clone troopers.

The fate of the Amazons?

This was brought up recently here and while I can see how disappointing that may be there are a few things I wanted to bring up.

Reading List

It's been awhile since I wrote one of these.

DC February Solicits

The start of new arcs and series.

Gotham Academy in trouble?

I read this recently and that's sad because it's been a fun series. I stopped reading right after Robin War partly to save money but I think I'll be getting this again. To support it and see if it's still the book I enjoyed.

Have you ever...

...wanted to talk about something or at least see how others react to it but you have to wait awhile? It's wonderful and horrible at the same time. I now understand how my sister feels when she introduces me to one of her shows.

Technically I'm halfway done Christmas Shopping

It's easier for me to start shopping early for money reasons and to avoid a lot of the crowd. Unfortunately it's usually the people that are easy to get presents for that I finish with first. Now I'm left with trying to figure out gifts for loved ones that never give me any ideas what they want. One gift card is nice but too many and it's impersonal to them.

Am I the only one that analysis stuff like this?

I admit I may overthink some things since it's so much fun. I love stories that make me ponder and enjoy taking apart details to question what they mean. I do metas discussing different aspects and ask questions in my reviews.

Some Variants for next month

The three that stood out the most although I will admit that Wizard of Oz Harley Quinn variant was a runner up.

Dexter Soy out Mirko Colak in?

It looks that way. It's hard to tell how his Jason will be, the Red Hood shown isn't in action, but Colak has some nice looking art. Be that as it may it's still sad to see Soy go but at least he finished the first arc. I really hope this doesn't turn into a revolving door of artists again. Not just the big titles like Batman need to have artist stay on for longer duration.

12' Arsenal Figure


Not my favorite Roy Harper look but it's still awesome.

Skims info on one of my favorite Marvel Characters

Oh he finally returned, lost all his developments and is dying.

...Every once in a while you give me a reminder Marvel.

WTF is going on with King 's Batman?

I saw this then went to a message board to see if any of it was explained.

I usually look forward to Thanksgiving

I won't be this year. Much as I like the food it's going to be a pain to eat.

Possible spoiler cover for #5 ?

Because the cover for #4 was supposed to be used for #5 making me wonder if the original cover for #4 was supposed to be a fake cover. I would have thought they were originally mixed up except for the fact the website has the same cover for both issues. So excited for what this could mean  I can barely contain it ! This is why I wish this series was bi-weekly !

Another year without Booster Gold?

It's really mind boggling when I think about it. DC was building Booster up then he gets his JLI title canceled and barely shows up afterwards. The sad thing is: It wouldn't shock me if he's not in the upcoming event. It seems like something custom made for him but it wouldn't shock me.

When Booster does show up again can we get another costume change? It's been awhile and the new 52 look was never his strongest design.

Do you remember comics that made you cry?

Or get misty eyed or just feel so much for the character(s)? Touching, sad, gut wretching moments that you can empathize with? I've been thinking of those a lot lately. Some stories go too far making you furious about what's written while others don't really earn your sympathy. There are others still that make you think, that build layers making the impact all the more meaningful. Those catch you off guard and make you feel the full scope of it all.

Too Much? Yes, yes it is.


Poor Jason has to be a hostage to save an innocent and judge Harvey's style at gunpoint.

I always loved this panel


Back when I first saw this I wondered what Willis did for Two-Face. Look at his nice suit, I remember thinking he might have been an accountant. Then the desk caught my eye and I started to wonder if Willis got the tedious job of custom making these things for Harvey. Can you imagine how frustrating that would be? Cutting everything in half and having to think of the two different styles? Of course that would mean Harvey wanted to kill him for messing that up. It was a silly idea anyway plus it's implied he just did henchman type of things. 

Still can you imagine how much Harvey spends on his theme?

Comic Canon Always Changes

Reading through the older runs certain things pop up and I always wondered why they made the changes. This one is in regards to Catherine Todd.

Jason Todd and How Women have Affected him

There have been essays on how Jason Todd is a feminist and while I won't get quite that in depth I still think it's worth noting. This isn't to say that the other Robins don't care about women but Jason has definitely been affected by them more. He has the strongest relationships with women while he doesn't have that many close male bonds

Red Hood and the Outlaws #4 VOL. 2

I'm hoping that this issue can improve my mood on this terrible day. First I should note this isn't the cover that was solicited making me wonder if the real cover for #5 is spoilery. I heard rumors this one would be a big issue so let's see if that's true.

SPOILERS AHEAD

This is a terrible day

I tried to go to the dentist. I didn't want to be put to sleep for the extraction but the whole thing was a disaster. Long story short I have to go to a specialist now and I'm pissed off about the whole thing.

Oh yeah and never before has Padme's remark been so spot on.

Short Review: Superman #10

Another Superboy and Robin first time meeting only this is between Jon and Damian.

Teen Titans Rebirth

I really didn't want to get this book but did for a discount and not knowing what other title to get.

Well...Damian decides to have his own Teen Titans.

More Name meanings for the Robins

Just because I always find it interesting. There were a few different meanings to some of these. Do the names fit the characters ?

Sunday, November 6, 2016

Should Mime Return ?

As RHATO has already linked past canon into present I was thinking of past stories that could be used. Mime was...well a mime that hated sound. She was an attempt to create a Harley Quinn like character before Harley was around. I'd like to see her obsession with silence played up more, it'd be fun to have a mostly "silent" issue. But the problem would come from making her different enough from Harley and Jokers' daughter.

Who else could make a comeback from the Robin years?

Weird thought about name meanings

This came  to me out of no where.

Giffin adding Sugar and Spike to Blue Beetle

Interview here. Seriously kudos to Giffin for deciding not to make their relationship romantic but otherwise I'm considering dropping this title. I don't really have a sense for who most of these characters are in this volume and adding more characters isn't helping matters.

Delay on Damian Books

I was going to read Superman #10 and Teen Titans Rebirth but I'm waiting for it to ship. I didn't want to get TT Rebirth but I couldn't think of another book to get for a discount. When I get them and if I'm able I'll review them.

I might be offline for awhile

It turns out I have to get my Wisdom teeth pulled. I never had teeth pulled before so I don't know how  up I'll be for posting things. Maybe I will be just to take my mind off of things. I don't know when I'll do it yet but it won't be this week. Just a heads up if I don't do a review or comment on any news that might drop. Or if I write weird things after the surgery.

This is going to be Damian Week

Review-wise since I'm getting two books to read. I'm hoping I like them because I haven't read anything he's been written decent in since Gleason wrote Robin, Son of Batman. ...Maybe Gotham Academy but that was pretty much a cameo.
