Cheaper 1/6 Superhero Figures

I've never bought any of the superhero dolls. Their too expensive, don't always look so good and they never make the ones I'd really want to collect. I did find less expensive ones that seem to have some quality to them though.

The Bana-Mighdall of William Messner-Loebs

Where the Bana-Mighdall Amazons get more sympathetic and Artemis is first introduced.

The Trauma of Resurrection

Every once in awhile I read something that makes me analysis a comic. This is a continuation of the bits I previously talked about that we got of Jason mentioning his death.

What Kids Should Return?

I talked some about this before but I think it's worth debating whether certain characters should come back. Would they fit in current canon? Do they have a place to exist?

Short Review: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #19

I've read it and my thoughts remain the same as they were in the preview. There's more to talk about of course.


What about the Time Masters?

I've returned home after a trip to my sister's and I read some confusion a fan has. So if anyone else is confused let me clarify.

SPOILERS AHEAD for Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps

Preview: Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #19

Shown here. I usually don't read previews of books I'm really looking forward to but I'm not sure how good my connection to the internet will be on Wednesday.

Scott Lobdell talks about Rebirth RHATO

Found here.

Death of the five year timeline

Thoughts on this.

New Reading List

I've been thinking about whether or not I should add more titles. I'm not including any back issues I might get.

This is just really bad PR

I have a hard time believing Marvel would do this. Then again I don't get why Marvel doesn't seem to get why people are upset with the story line.

Short Review: Hal Jordan and that Green Lantern Corps #18

Since one of my favorite characters has turned up I decided to get this arc.

Getting a bad mini series

I enjoyed Millennium and since I've been read back issues of Wonder Woman I've been thinking of getting Amazons Attack. It sounds like it isn't just bad but also entertaining.

I want Jason to meet Amazons

As in going to either Bana-Mighdall (which is more likely in the current arc) or Themyscrira. Why? Because I need to see his reaction after these scenes.

The Shim'tar

What the Shim'tar is has changed over the years.

Retconning Tomasi

I started looking around for reactions to RHATO #9 VOL. 2 and I was surprised someone had a problem with a certain retcon.


Red Hood and the Outlaws #9 Vol. 2

I'm not loving the extra wait between issues but it makes it cheaper to also get digital copies. All you have to do is pull off the sticker on the last page to get the code. Their only good for a limited time and I've heard eBay was cracking down on people selling codes too. While I now have both copies I read this digitally because it helps keep certain things from being spoiled panels before I read it.

That said a couple things were spoiled for me online but I think they were minor things.

Short Review: Booster Gold/Flintstones #1

Surely the crossover every one has been clamoring for. No? Well it's starring Booster Gold and I've been waiting for that for awhile.


Short Review: Green Arrow #20

The third part of the Ollie and Roy reunion arc.


Green Lantern Question

The ending of the recent Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps left me with a question.

DC Solicits for July

Another month with another chance for new books.

The Mom Situation

Death in the Family isn't a perfect story and even years later there's some confusion. One of the first arguments I heard from the DC comic fandom was if we actually got an answer to the question of who the real mother was.

Happy Easter !

I don't think there's many Easter related Bat stories but we'll always have Lil' Gotham.

Short Review: Super Sons #2

I decided to stick with this series for awhile just because I like the Kent side.

How are comics edited?

With the Syaf controversy and other such incidences I wonder how comics are being edited. I once heard that the editors don't proof read the books for grammar, spelling mistakes and art problems so much as make sure certain things are or aren't in the books. I don't think it's continuity because, well, books don't carry the same portrayals or nods to some solo titles. Is it just allusion to bigger titles? I'm not trying to belittle the work of editors I'm just not sure what's true or not. I can understand some things slipping under the radar but other bits like Colossus' shirt kind of demand some questions.

Somebody is in Hal Jordon's book?

As seen in this article. Thoughts below. Yes, I'm excited.

I have to wait a week for my comics

I have to figure out an easier way to get my books on time since the digital change up is currently messing up my reading process.

In the meantime I'm going to be working on some projects. If results are good I'll post it but for now I'm in research mode.

I really want Jason Todd Robin series

He seriously got screwed on his Robin time and has the least amount of stories. A mini series could build up future storylines and we'd actually get Robin stories with him having his own costume. Sadly there's only a few writers I'd actually trust to write it. More stories of one of my favorites, that's well written, is always welcomed. It would also clear up misunderstandings of his Robin days. Namely he didn't act the way the bat family suddenly claimed after his death.

Qurac and it's current importance

A fictional country in the DC universe that used to be wedged between Oman, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. I say "used to be" as it might be a little unclear where it's located in current canon.

Short Review: Green Arrow #19

Last issue was mostly about Roy (no complaints about that) trying to go home to help out. Only Ollie turns up and ticks him off.

What to read next

I realized that I don't have many current titles on my list this year and I'm wondering if I should check out any other titles. I'm not getting anything from Marvel but if anyone has ideas of what other series I can read let me know.

I'm also going through some back issues of Wonder Woman and I adore it. I'm not sure how much I'll read but I'm already considering what older series I should try next. I'm thinking of TT, possibly Superman or Batman. I'm not sold on anything yet so any suggestions would be welcomed.

Super Family Test

I expected this to be harder but I got a 100%. Nothing new is in it and I think that even if you don't know some answers you can figure it out based on the other answers. If you know comics in general anyway. I love superhero quizzes.

Bad Character Work

Have you ever had a few favorite characters that some writers never get right? That they just wrote stereotypically and then sees other readers praise the bad interpretations? Mostly because the writers are currently hot or they have no idea how the characters usually act? I've seen this happen with Booster and all the bat kids. It's lazy and annoying.

Marvel Sales Slump

I haven't commented on this mostly because I thought it was an April Fool's joke. Nope, I just heard about it a day later. What Marvel thinks is responsible for their lower sales.
