I do have volume one and read a few issues of it and loved it. I can't wait to see it on actual good paper.

Oh I get it. I just think he shouldn't have said anything at all. If your book isn't written with a political slant, then just don't say anything.

I thought the premise of White Knight was to shine a spotlight on Batman's more uncomfortable authoritarian overtones. Tough on crime isn't really a great look in the BLM era, and it was gonna explore that.

No clue what Murphy's trying to say with that tweet.

I want Planet Hulk omnibus but I don't know if I will get it right away or not. I might just pick up the little Black Beetle hardcover and the Harley Quinn omni. If I have any extra funds it will go towards Gillen JiM Omnibus.

Alright. I think I'm about finished with this marvel sale

The highlights for me were
- Spider-girl mini
- Spider-Man tangled web : A great "Tales of the dark knight" style Spider-Man book that early on focused on others in one off stories. Really great stuff
- Sentinal - Marvel's manga Iron giant book. It's awesome. I ignore everything Marvel did to him post Avengers academy

Just drawing more fire. Especially when someone figures out a discrepancy. Look at Nick Spencer. Shit did not go well for him. Has never gone well for him.

People like Murphy think they are being fair and 'rational' and don't understand the damage they are doing.

Or they just share some of those types of views from the 'other side' but don't want to be open about it.

In any case, as that one reply summed it up so well....

The main series is fun, secret origins is a nice little story with great art. Annual #1 is good. Comic con is trash, futures end is trash, holiday special is fun, valentines day is good. Harley and power girl is a let down sadly. It was fine but it could have been so much more. It's worth reading as part of the series though. It's worked into the story in a mildly amusing way.

Oh yeah. Haha. There actually WERE a few good tie-ins, though. Green Arrow acted as a great series closer for Lemire, and Grayson was very cool.

Was the Comic-Con issue the one with the implied Joker orgy?

Sure, but that was what? Like three good ones out of 18 or something?

Now that I'm thinking of it, I actually did read the first 9 issues of the book and the holiday special. I thought they were fun. It's been a long time though, so I'll re-read them.

It's a let down to me because I expected so much. I was happy to see Conner and Palmiotti pee gee again. It's fine it's not bad content. It's significantly better than Gang of Harleys which will be in the next omnibus. That mini was so unnecessary.

Red Hood and the Outlaws
Sinestro
Red Lanterns
Grayson
Green Arrow
Superman (or Action Comics. I can't recall which. It involved Billy Batson pretending to be Superman after he was killed)
Swamp Thing
Earth 2
Phantom Stranger

Were all decent to great.

Harley Quinn
Batman

Were average

Suicide Squad
Justice League Dark
Batgirl
Pandora

Were all terrible. Never read the core event, and I didn't even read all of the tie-ins.
