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.

I've read about half of these and would agree.

Justice League Dark is that bad? I bought the Lemire volumes the other month :(
I'll probably still like it just because of how much I love Horror.

Oh no, the book is great. The first three trades are spectacular (read nothing past those). I'm strictly referring to the Future's End one-shots in that post.

I think I'll pick up the first volume of X-Men blue in this sale. Maybe. Is it actually good, or it's just not bad? I don't wanna read generic crap, even if it's with characters I like. I do wanna know what's going on in the X-Men universe. I'm only reading Astonishing.

I'm enjoying Blue so far. From what I've seen opinion on the book really depends on how one feels about the time displaced characters.

They're not my favorite, but maybe I could grow to like them more haha

Just to chime in on the whole Sean Murphy stuff.

I'm glad other people have picked up on this, cos I've been watching it slowly unfold the last couple of weeks and wincing. He's clearly trying to have his cake and eat it. To have the comic be political but not have any answers or take a side which is such bullshit. I already get the feeling the book will end poorly because of this. I get that he may not want to alienate people but he has to accept that will happen in the US's political climate.

Also him attacking journalists as only selling advertising won't win him any coverage.

It's wierd because Tom King's work is very political but he doesn't really put it across like that so it doesn't get railed on.

Thank for the new thread Messi and Freeza :) plenty to look forward to again this month with DC Metal and tie ins, Marvel Legacy 1, last issue of Secret Weapons and more Hi Fi Fight Club (now if I could only actually track down a copy of the first issue of it ha and if anyone says go digitial I am likely to just put my fingers in my ears and hum over you)

Latest Saga issue was great as usual, I don't know how they keep managing to roll out these heartfelt moments every week but they manage it, the feels after Hazels conversation at the end of the issue :(. Though after reading it I did have two main thoughts:

Do you think Hazel is actually going to be a singer when she grows up? The way it was mentioned makes me think that conversation was important, plus her mom was in showbiz for a while there kind of

Also, Petri just no, you can do a lot lot better than that broken tv head

If he wants to be wishy-washy and doesn't want to stand behind his writing, maybe he shouldn't exploit the current topics (that affect a lot of people) in his books?

October is always a big release month for lots of things. For figure releases alone this October is going to be a fucking death month.

Like it's fine that you wanted to be a centrist/both sides are equally wrong(I guess) type of person, but if you're writing a book with a specific message that clearly chooses a side you should just shut up.

Also saying "TDKR would have been by issue 2" doesn't actually help his argument. No it wouldn't. Miller's more fascist Batman is a logical progression of the character but also strongly reflects the times in which they were made. Hopefully just like Sean Murphy's series is doing. Unless it isn't then what is it for?

TV / Novels are completely separate from the comics. They share some similar events here and there but the show diverges pretty early on from the comic series.
