    Not a lot to dive into. Once you break it down from its needless fragmentation the story beats are pretty clean and simple. Mann's art is quite nice. I really like that Catwoman costume a lot. The...

    I saw a list the other day of like, your Top Ten New 52 concepts. And while Scott Snyder's Batman somehow made # 1, and all the other Snyder Co. allied titles were totally in there, pretty...

    Hey, this story might be filler to fill in the gaps in the publishing but it's got a few things going that several other comics this week don't.

    A coherent story. A back-to-basics approach to the...

    Definitely don't waste your money on a stop-gap space-filler micro-event. There's nothing in particular wrong with Alt-Future storylines. But there's all kinds of quandaries with line-wide things...

    Agreed. I can't claim to know but I suspect he's probably fairly satisfied with the Filoniverse as of now. A lot of really satisfactory resolutions and "could continues". And while I still think it's...

    People also don't tend to realize that the American Revolution didn't happen in a few weeks. There were 10-15 years of serious unrest, militia arming, incompetent governance by British jokers, taxes...

    Watched this to pass time between Thanksgiving dinner and new Mando tonight. I laughed quite a bit. It's silly and Lego and whatever but there were still moments I really liked within the spoofing.

    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...

    Mando # 11.

    Funny how 9. introduces the concept of Inheritance and 10. introduces the concept of Lineage and 11. Immediately makes it relevant. Looking forward to seeing Din's unique...

    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...

    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...
