    An aphorism.

    I must admit, while I like any good nerd love the old Stan Lee one-liner from Uncle Ben, it's an aphorism that I don't think has a lot of real clarity. What does Ben Parker mean when...

    I thought this was good. A nice document and I thought he used the let's say catchphrases-of-the-era, the parlance, effectively and judiciously and in a way that didn't feel super overt. Or I mean...

    I've found it to be more hit than miss but respect enough of all the previous Tomasi runs and it's had these glimmers, these moments, so I've stuck with it.

    I liked the Damian return and I liked...

    I don't think Vader is too powerful in the comics.

    But the medium, with its big spaces and fluid drawings and occasional artistic license tends to make cool moves and scenes come across as more...

    It could be cool if they do a kind of Don Corleone thing with him.

    Weirdly enough I feel like it could still be done. Get a little high adventure in there, and a smidge of allegory about how when...

    Moreover a lot of Stormtroopers seem to have been press-ganged into service, coerced, extorted, or came from run-down circumstances that meant they didn't have many other options. Han Solo is a fine...

    You write this, and I nod quietly in geeky agreement with this.

    But then I shift gears and start thinking about Klingons and I'm like "how come in my brain this applies to one thing but not the...

    I'm excited for it because of some long overdue focus on Lightning, Mal, Bumblebee, and several others. I'm mostly curious about how it's going to play out and what the contents actually are. I do...

    I mean even just prior to the current events ... Scott Snyder kind of made him terrifying in that All-Star Batman "basically just a mini-series lead-up to Metal" story, but like two months later to...

    I like Morrison's run more than is healthy and it was the reason why I started buying Absolute Editions. But I think there's enough "weird" in the entirety of his run where you almost can't pinpoint...

    I liked the latest issue of turtles. Art on point. The plot was pure set-up ... kind of a slow burn with the world-building and realpoliticking of Mutant Town and what it is for the Brothers and...

    My morbid curiosity always getting the better of me because I'm a NIGHTWING fan, I did check out this KGBeast issue. And while it hit all the most dumb predictable beats, giving a full circle...

    The one thing I did like this week was reading Fabok's favorite bit, and that being Batman forgiving Joe Chill basically. I mean I agree, ostensibly that's the only properly nice part of the book....

    I saw this news the other day.

    No heavy thoughts, but I think the idea of an Amazon from the Amazon is pretty solid pulp concept that fits the modern day zeitgeist well enough, and I think that...

    I picked up on that too, but still wondered why 11-Hal looks like Hal and 11-Carol looks like Carol. But certainly from a personality POV, the "he's not that big of a problem" toxic lothario Hal is...

    Last Ronin was great so far. I kind of pegged which turtle it was about 1/4 of the way through. It wasn't a lucky guess so much as a quick instinct from a context clue. It was neat that they used all...
