Short Review: Odyssey of the Amazons #5

I keep forgetting I pre-ordered this series.

DC Solicits for September 2017

There seems to be a lot of big SPOILERS in this one for future storylines.

Tumblr can be a horrible place

You might find some cool sites but there's so much pointless crap. People getting upset over pairings that aren't canon, being furious that their headcanon isn't being treated like canon. Getting facts wrong and blaming people for stuff that isn't even the accused fault. Making blanket statements and stating something sucks without properly explaining why. It's aggravating and I barely go there except to visit the sites that are good. Even then you hear about the frustrating stuff.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #11 Vol. 2

I pre-ordered this but I saw it at a book store too. Which really surprised me since I rarely find it there. I couldn't wait to read it and I figured why not support the series a little more. I pre-ordered futures issues so I might not get anymore at the store. Partly because they one seem to get one issue of this series at a time. On to the review.

The Sexuality of Artemis of Bana-Mighdall

I thought it was a good topic to discuss and was waiting until the end of her arc to post this. Then I heard people are fuming over the idea of her liking a man. Great timing huh? This deals with past canon and current.


I might get the Injustice Comics

But I'm waiting to see how the new Batman and sister of Damian plot pans out first. Anyway Booster Gold and Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) showed up. I kind of knew where this was heading by the solicits but this still had great interactions with the guys.

On another note: If Booster shows up in the next game I hope his super involves throwing his enemy into the timeline and have them get attacked in whatever eras the go through. That would be a lot of fun.

Finally saw Lego Batman

It wasn't exactly what I expected.


Reading spoilers for Dark Days The Forge

And maybe it makes more sense in the comic it's self but just reading about it confused me. Some general thoughts based on what I heard. Any clarification is welcomed.

My comics just got ruined

My glass fell and spilled all over my comics. Artemis Requiem is drying but I don't think it's going to be salvageable. I'm still going through the damage but my Rebirth RHATO VOL. 2 trade has a few pages struck together while Year One Wonder Woman trade looks worse off. This really sucks.

Rebirth Booster Gold?

Could Jurgens be teasing Booster's return? I hope so.

That time Selina dreamed of marrying Batman

There were probably other times but I remembered this image.

You probably can't see it clearly but Tim is wearing a bow tie.  If Selina and Bruce got married they might not have the uniforms (I hope not) but I'd want some allusions to their IDs. Even if it's just something like bat cuff links and a cat wedding cake. Something. 

Mezco One:12 Wonder Woman Movie Figure

The second female character to be made in the Mezco One:12 line. Unlike the other figures she doesn't seem to have any cloth clothing but rather plastic. I feel like the price should go down because of that. But this figure does look awesome.

Jason Todd isn't legally dead?

I gotta admit I've had a lot of questions about this for awhile. I wondered how he existed even though he's legally dead. Why no one outside the superhero community questioned it. Well this was kinda brought just makes me a bit confused. What I like, what I don't like and what I want to see explained.

Rest in Peace Adam West

He played a memorable Batman and brought some lightness to the role. He will be missed.

On my RHATO Theory

When I first re-read Red Hood and the Outlaws volume 2 something came to mind within the first two issues. It made me see some clues that supported this idea that was already forming. I might have gotten a little excited over what this could mean. This is a little bit of my thought process for how I came to my conclusion with the clues I found. I think the story was changed near the end since we never get satisfying answers to some parts.

World Building in RHATO Rebirth

According to this interview:

Nrama: This week is the publication of the Rebirth issue, which proceeds August's new Red Hood and the Outlaws#1. How does the Rebirth issue kind of set things up?

LobdellRebirth is a strong start to a new series... and as you read if you'll start to notice just how much is secretly crammed into Rebirth in terms of building the world. There is almost not a panel that doesn't get used somewhere down the line. (Lots of Easter eggs are going to be bringing readers back to the Rebirth issue again and again over the next few months!)

This isn't a recent interview but it's still worth mentioning.

Just random things

General thoughts of comic related stuff.

Selina's answer

My feelings on the question she was asked and her potential answer.

Responding to: "And Now What?"

Found here.

I've only read one issue of Deathstroke and I didn't like Lazarus Contract. That said I don't think that it's right that Christopher Priest got so much hate over it. I don't agree whenever any writer get treated horribly. Should writers be criticized? Of course but for their writing not as people.

Said criticism should be constructive. I understand the need to vent, many of my reviews are done as I'm reading them to capture my gut feelings in the moment. But I also understand that there's more at work than simply one writer especially in a crossover.

Teen Titans Annual #1

The previous part of Lazarus Contact was bad enough for Flash and Damian fans. Can it get worse? Yep. Can it make sense? That ship already sailed so not really.

Deathstroke #19

Where we find out what the deal was. Yeah it doesn't make the reasoning for character's actions make any more sense. Quite the opposite.

Damian also continues to prove he's the only Robin that is horrible at leading.

Teen Titans #8

Where some characters act creepy.


Friday, June 2, 2017

Trinity Annual #1

I thought I could get more of the plot for the Outlaws appearing in future issues and see how this series is written.


Titans # 11

I heard this crossover was bad and wanted to see what the big deal was.
