The JL International omnibus looks gorgeous omg.
Dude I CAN'T WAIT. I've wanted to read the series so bad over the years, but it's only ever been on crappy newsprint paper and I hate newsprint. Plus, several of the trades are out of print.

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.

Guys... he's still trying to sell some comicbooks in the end. It's not like his actual story's going to change since a lot of it is finished by now. He's just saying this stuff so people will buy his products.

And he brings up in other tweets that he's been getting harassed by trolls and is clearly worried it'll damaged the comic's word of mouth.
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 didn't post much last month 'cus I was shitting up the Game of Thrones thread but it did seem a bit slower than usual. Ya'll need to post more, mah dudes.

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.

Shiiiiiiit. Ennis Punisher AND Planet Hulk omnis next week? FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU
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

In the books reveal he felt the need to drop a mention to Black Lives Matter and the wage gap and the second he felt any kind of pushback he got defensive and started saying his batman wasnt political , wasnt SJW batman .
I'm very worried about this "hero" joker will act through politics if this is his view. :(

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.

Man, that makes me sad about Harley and PG. I figured for sure that would be good.

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.

Oh yeah, still a disgrace. But I am glad that those good ones exist at least.

Huh so marvel's CMX BOGO sale is happening this weekend.

Time to peruse the wishlist and see if there's anything worth it
I have bought a lot in previous sales, and that batshit insane Amazon sale a while back really bumped the library up.

Having trouble thinking about what to look for this time around.......

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.

Oh, yeah, that's fair. I'll just go in with normal expectations and I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

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.
