11 comics pages, 13 words

Comics with mom!
My belated thoughts on titles from a few weeks ago..

Batman 1 yr later

Robinson, Kramer, Champagne

Where was Batman then? After a year of speculation as to the cause of his disappearance, Batman has returned.

Pamela Isly- our favorite redhead villian Poison Ivy- has taken CEO's hostage. I think her hair is too golden, not red enough, but the facial expressions and headshots by Don Kramer are well done. Dark panels that of twisted metal and debris set the mood as Bats and Robin storm the building.

I hope the writer wasn't being paid by the word...because besides some BAKOOM! and SKKKRRK! nonsense words, in 11 pages there are only 13 words! The art can tell the story, but that's just too much. It's like 'stretching' the plot.

The dialogue between Bats and Pamela includes the typical exchanges of 'I thought I just killed you' 'It wouldn't be the first time'. I do enjoy the corporate villany plot and the environmental message.

"These businesses are destroying the planet-- and all for more of the thing they have too much of to begin with. Money."

Thing 4 and 5 /She Hulk 6
We love Dan Slott! Have you heard this new spat about The Hulk with Bendis and Slott? Slott says Hulk has never killed an innocent/ Bendis had some other opinion. But the writers say they like each other.

The Thing-- 4 and 5
Who does Ben pine for..."Alicia- how you were the best thing to ever happen to me...and somehow I let you slip away". Of course he misses his blue eyed redhead!

Issue 4 is just a great man and his dog issue with The Thing and Lockjaw. After dating hot actresses and being the man about town, Ben goes back to Yancy Street and what is real.
"A man ought to be worth more than his money"

And a final page visit from...The Sandman!

She-Hulk 6
"Beaus and Eros". She-Hulks law partner and roommate Pugs is secretly in love with her. He know her favorite movie is Pretty in Pink (Why does Andie chose Blane over Duckie?)and favorite ice cream is Cherry Garcia. Of course, flyboy hottie John Jamison swoops in just as Pugs works his way up to confessing this to her.

Jennifer's newest case: Starfox- Eros of Titan (See Horn's cheesecake cover for the Shatner Captain Kirk type,) is accused of sexual assault. He is known for his conquests throughout the galaxy [space bimbos, space virgins and some space farmers daughters] and claims "she wanted it". Jennifer tries to keep a muzzle on her client, as a big computer head representing comes from to say there is no case against him.

Great photo. It's nice that you were able to spend some quality time with her.

If there's a "civil war" (boom boom!) at Marvel between Bendis and Slott, then I'm with Slott.

Scr#w you, Baldy!

I agree, Mark. Slott rocks, man!

I got to spend 30 mins driving Slott to the train station last year. He is a living, walking ball of comic energy. A great writer, with hilarious stories, and a decent guy to boot!
