It was a trade-off. The paper quality has changed to be worse for reading, but better for giving paper cuts. Rebellion was the goal all along.



Don't forget to grab the free Raven DLC that came out a couple weeks back.

WAAAAAAAAAY more than 20k

You're probably not wrong. If there are people out there willing to pay $20k for a life-size anime girl figure, this would probably go for more.

Jim Lee Harley covers have been 4-6k and those are just regular covers not X-Men #1. I'd say this cover goes for frank miller money.

Inhumans Prime #1
I really liked this. Good in closure and set-up. Art was okay, but it felt consistent, and that's important with issues like this. I'm really excited for continuing this storyline after having invested so much time (and dollars) into the whole Inhumans storyline. Also I know nothing of Marvel Boy, so this should be good.

X-Men Prime #1
Not as cohesive as Inhumans, but it did the job. The Weapon X story is weird, so that will be interesting. I did like how Kitty was basically pulling a Cyclops in Whedon's Astonishing X-Men. Beyond all of that it was okay. Nothing spectacular, and quite honestly very little intriguing set-up. Very vague. One question: On the page with the creative teams listed, there's an image of some X-Men. Why is Archangel wearing Magneto's helmet? Or is that an artist quirk?

Infamous Iron Man #6
Cool issue. Cool fight. Doom's a prick and the Maker's WHISPER project from New Avengers worked.

Old Man Logan #20
DICK MOVE. Oh well. Hopefully Andrade's off the book after this. His art is nice for really visceral action, but other than that I'm not a fan. I do love this book still.

Justice League of America #3
Really curious as to who Havok is at this point. Because I don't remember him having that shield, and that looks like a Captain America knockoff. still enjoying this book, but my interest in this arc is waning.

FWIW, I really enjoyed the Ghost in the Shell* movie. Sure, it is missing a lot of the nuance and context of the original but it was still fun and looked great visually. (It also got me more hyped for Cyberpunk 2077).




*I've only seen the first movie and the first series.

Just read Batman #9-13, aka I Am Suicide. Extremely interesting stuff handled in an exceedingly odd fashion. The plotting was excellent. The moment-to-to-moment writing was superb (barring where King's fondness for ironic echo and symbolic repetition became excessive in spots). There was some gorgeous art and some really inventive paneling (don't post the pipes, that's the worst example of the effect). But... not much actually happened. This is almost like a dream arc that took place entirely outside of the character's heads. They got back Psycho Pirate in a 2 day plan that was so elegant it barely seemed to exist at all, which don't get me wrong is pretty damn cool, but it does mean that the heavy lifting is relegated to stuff like Bruce and Selina's letters to each other (which I LOVED btw).

All in all this is one I'm gonna have to chew on for a while. The stuff it says about Batman and Catwoman's characters is...

I'm gonna have to chew on it lol.

14 was goooooooood. This is kind of redefining how I think about Bruce and Selina's relationship, usually it's a much more typical "serious guy and flighty girl" sorta dynamic, but this is presenting them as being... almost too broken to be with anybody not as messed up as they are.

Batman #14-15, aka Rooftops: This... this was goooooood. The dueling "first meetings" is really interesting, and I'm curious to see where that goes; could be Button type stuff, could be Selina being her usual unreliable narrator self, could be that she met him before he met her somehow. I expect that'll get expanded on somewhere down the line. Wasn't at all shocked to see how the 237 murders thing went down, but it was good to get that whole thing sorted out, and it adds a lot to Catwoman's letter in I am Suicide. Art was great too.

Ended up with the whole evening free so just blasted through vol 1 and 2 of Deadly Class Reread, gonna get started on vol 3 as well so I can enjoy some new material tomorrow. Such a good series, the whole creative team at the top of their game. Loughridge's coloring astounds me.

Batman #16-19, aka I am Bane: I cannot WAIT for the last chapter of this. Shit is impressive. King's basically inverted the usual Knightfall-retread dynamic, which is pretty fun, but the writing brings it to a whole 'nother level. Art has been damn solid the whole time too.

Especially impressive moments include the entire Bat Burger sequence, which was hilarious, Maxie Zeus' performances, the entire Scarecrow sequence, and the page where Bane has to go grab Riddler to get through the door.

My only real sticking point is from #16, which is pretty small... they really should've shown us the Bat-Boys' confrontation with Bane. Just having them show up in the cave after the fact felt like gratuitous shock value stuff. Although I did like the reversal with Selina later. King's devotion to the Ironic Echo can grate at times but it gave us a wonderful visual gag this go 'round. Also very curious about the War of Jokes and Riddles, despite the references to it becoming way, waaaaay too overt. Foreshadowing is supposed to be subtle bro, meta-foreshadowing doubly so.

Finished rereading Deadly Class, nothing beats that ending to #16: Kill the rats. Vol. 4 tomorrow!

Edit: I lied, had to keep going and read vol 4. Damn, brilliant volume. My only complaint is the colourist change. I can't exactly quantify what it is but I know Boyd replaced Loughridge and there is definitely an off feel from time to time where the result of the art isn't exactly what I've come to expect. I noticed the visual change first before I went and checked, and realised the colorist had changed.

If you are waiting for OHCs of Rebirth books then you have to come to terms with the fact that you are never going to catch up. There is no way for DC to release these OHCs that allow you to catch up and not destroy their sales of trades and a lesser extent floppies.

Those OHC dates came from that catalog and its usually fairly accurate when it comes to release dates.

I am so glad they are doing OHCs for so many series though.
