Royal City starting up already, nice. Looking forward to that one. Still haven't read Essex County, but apparently he wants this to be an ongoing with the same vibe.

Interesting solicit for Low. Wasn't Poluma the pirate dome? I thought the entire population was killed when Tajo let loose. So not entirely sure when that issue must be set.

It;s been so long i forgot some of the details for low. I'm guessing there was survivor inspired by one of the brothers, so probably present or right after it was destroyed, he could have escaped by one of the ships it's been so long though.

Haha I only just got around to read volume 3 of the trades last week so not so long for me/a life time until I actually read the new issues. You're probably right, I'm sure there will be a scenario like that that makes sense. It just jumped out at me because Tajo & Della pass through Poluma on the way to the surface and that sparks the sisters arguing because it's literally a mass grave. I'm sure the new character will end up shot, stabbed, irradiated and bleeding from the eyeballs like most cast members in this book XD

Great new thread Messi and Freeza, thanks. Plenty to look forward to this month, with new start for x-men, american gods and sadly shutter coming to an end. At least there releasing that new Del Luca book to console us all. One thing that still bugs me though looking at those covers is why the hell does Roy Harper still have his horrible backwards cap, goggles combo, lets leave that look way back in the 90,s.

As much as I've loved the first series as a whole, does anyone think they kind of messed up the landing in Black Panther #11. Seemed kind of rushed after so much build up and like people have mentioned really small in scale for a big war. Parts of it just seemed out of nowhere and confusing as well, I presume it will answer some of these questions going into issue 12 and the second series. I wasn't sure on that last page whether they had taken back the capital and formed a new council with the midnight angels or whether zenzi still held the capital and panther/shuri had joined the midnight angels new state to plan how to fight back

I know I asked this question a bit back, but I think it got buried in a string of new announcements. Has anyone tried the strangers in paradise pocket books? Are they okay? I want to read it in print form after recently getting into motor girl, but the omnibus is a bit expensive without trying the series first and the normal volumes originally released seem really expensive now

The final issue of Midnighter and Apollo was absolutely pitch perfect. Hopefully Orlando is back to writing them sooner rather than later.

Midnighter & Apollo

I thought the final issue of this mini was great, but I felt a little lost on some of the action. Seemed like the worst depiction of the action so far in either series. Maybe it was me, but I just felt lost a few times.

Green Lanterns

As someone who knew barely anything about Green Lanterns before Rebirth and absolutely nothing of Volthoom I really liked this issue. Gave a good depiction of the character of Volthoom and did a good job of catching up to his side of this story.

Green Arrow

Damn, this was great too. Not a ton to talk about really but thought it was a really good issue.


So far a really good day for DC.

Been reading GLA by Slott. Went in expecting hijinks and comedy. I don't know what Slott was aiming for (satire on grim-dark superhero comics?) but the jokes just enhanced the feeling of sadness for me.

That would explain why the new Hanna Barbera books aren't coming out until the fall. DC has been trying to stagger the new releases from their secondary brands. Milestone returns in June / July then HB wave 2 in September / October like Mark Russell said.

Volthoom was the antagonist in Geoff Johns final Green Lantern arc, The Wrath of the First Lantern, and the ring made on Earth 3 from his essence was a part of Forever Evil and then Justice League from Forever Evil through Darkseid War. Jessica Cruz was a big part of the ring story.

Hmm read quite a bit of Tom King's Batman now. And sadly it isn't very good.
I don't think King really understands any of the characters he is writing. Its all very odd.

I feel like Batman 16 is the exact opposite of what you're saying. That burger joint scene between the Bat Family was simply amazing and had all the characters done perfect.

I was disappointed in I am Suicide a lot because of the amount of emphasis put on a plan to have it end up being overly simple and dumb, but I don't get the character complaints at all.

To be fair I haven't read any of the current arc. I just don't care for the way he is writing Bane, Batman or Catwoman. And all this nonsense with the Psycho Pirate is just weird.

It all feels off, but I can't put my finger on exactly why.

I do think his writing style has a weird effect when being applied to Batman. I am Suicide I think was the most apparent. He seems to be heavily going for the emotional aspect and I feel like it's a weird fit for Batman. It somewhat worked with I am Gotham because it was more attached to characters we didn't know, but with I Am Suicide it just felt weird and felt like it wasn't quite hitting the way King thought it was meant to.

I would say I am Bane so far seems a lot less contingent on that aspect so far and all three issues so far have been pretty amazing. I really like Gotham, really disliked and almost hated Suicide, but I'm loving I am Bane so far.

I feel like he is really trying to put Batman and Bane as being a twisted reflection of each other. Which has always been true to some extent, but King is really beating you over the head with it so much it becomes obnoxious.
Hell he was trying to do the same thing with Batman and Catwoman.

Then you come to the Mcguffin that the two are fighting over is the Psycho Pirate and the whole thing kinda falls apart. It just makes Batman and Bane look kinda weak to be honest.

Perhaps its just his writing style that sits wrongly with me.

maybe she was hit by a bullet from Magna or Yumiko? Maybe they try to Cauterize the infection if it's indeed a bite. She's probably going to die :(

If hes gonna make quick art, he should move to use flatter colors rather than that painted look under sketchy lines I see him use often. He has clashing shapes and values and it would be better if he refined his lines and toned down the amount of time he spends on values and just go with flat colors.

His refined work is really nice but I can see why he doesn't fully paint in sequentials. Comic pages take long enough as is.

For batman that is. Finished up reading Snyder's run last night, haven't started King's stuff. Would help me contextualise thoughts about the King stuff I'm reading.

Such bullshit...a line in the letters section makes it seem like the bullet may be the case though.
