Like Superman, I will return
I'm going on blog vacation until July 1st. Blog hiatus. Now that I've made it one year, I've got a comicon to organize, guitar to be played, 5K running, the house, the beach-- and comics and trades to catch up on. Busy ol' redhead. And that library work too. But keep sendin'your emails to email@example.com if you want my 53 giveaway from the previous post.
Walking Dead 28
I'm really disturbed by the start of the sexual assault of Michonne. The Governor, brutal and powerful, feeds people to the zombies for sport. Rick ends up severely injured, but once again any woman in a comic gets brutalized. There have been a few moments where this series has gone to a frontier style life, with the women cleaning and caring for kids and the men put on riot gear and fight. Let's hope she breaks away and mauls this governor beast-- but even with that comeuppance, it's just sad. In every end of the world type story, it seems that all men just turn into rapists.
Zombies- "There just us- they get what they want- they're only content for the briefest span of time."
Nextwave 5 [warren ellis, stuart immogen]
Crayon Butchery edition. It was a whole comic that was like a sketch cover.
General Anger of HATE lies in wait for the Nextwave team. The team has to fight various enemies
"Throwing koala bears out of an airplane just doesn't seem right". Cuddly koalas are thrown at the team, revealing themselves to have pointy teeth. "death bears!"
"drummer" is synonym for "jerk"
Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man 9 [peter david, michael wieringo]
Sounds like I need to read the Civil War tie in Amazing Spider-man. Unmask himself or flee is the cliffhanger...
FNS- More of Ben Parker and the alternate reality brought on by Hobgoblin 2211. Some interesting physics and colorful art.
To Doctor Bourne (Spidey): "you loved Robin until she became her own person."
Robin/Hobgoblin has created retcon bombs to obliterate even the memory "no one remembers spiderman"
Invincible 32 [robert kirkman, ryan ottley]
Atom Eve, Invincible and Beth in Africa.
She sits on the roof watching nature, creates coffee out of atoms, and discusses how being with Beth must be hard. I like Atom Eve, being a redhead beauty and a smart, straightforward character. Invincible when a phone call lets him know his mother, and baby brother, are in trouble- held by Angstrom. Story from Marvel Teamup 14 will continue here next time
"I told you, these people never look up"
52 Week 4, 5
I think I like to read a few of these at a time, helps the story gel better for me. Luthor's metagene would let "every man and woman can be a superhero". Renee deals with her post surveillence monster attack. Dibny goes to some culty area with Wonder Girl Cassie to ask about the resurrection sign on his wife's gravestone.
Laying Steel to rest "I didn't want to set a bad example or be the wrong kind of inspiration"
Booster Gold "It is about me!"
Adam Strange, Animal Man and Starfire did not materialize. Don't miss the hot redhead alien woman bathing in the stream.
They can be a great people, Kal-El, they wish to be. They only lack the light to show the way. For this reason above all, their capacity for good, I have sent them you... my only son.
