- JUN080202 DETECTIVE COMICS #847 RIP $2.99
I'm more interested in the Detective story than Morrison's RIP. Does that make me bad person?
As disappointing as the conclusion to Jeph Loeb's year-long mystery was, I actually have a strange fondness for the Hush character. Undoubtedly a character in need of development, I hope Paul Dini will be the man to endear the character to other Bat-fans. Alas; with Battle for the Cowl looming, I imagine it'll be another unfortunately abbreviated attempt to build the character's credibility. At the very least, I hope we can get a decent shot of Catwoman, who will now be sorely without her own title. With Dan DiDio recently confessing to the counter-productive nature of title reboots, one wonders if this might be rectified with long lasting dedication.
- MAY080145 FINAL CRISIS #3 (OF 7) $3.99
Things don't look so good for Wonder Woman!
Not nearly as confusing or mind-bending as some particularly American readers might lead you to believe! Final Crisis, as a major event in the DCU, has been surprisingly subdued thus far, but as the heroes find themselves targetted and knocked-off by the baddies, my expectations continue to grow. Could this possibly be the mass elevation of DC's lead heroes to New Godhood, or will the status quo somehow remain intact after Morrison's Darkside Club rips through it?
- MAY082275 HULK #5 $2.99
Thor missed WWH. He's making up for lost time!
The under performing Norse god of thunder joins Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness' duplo proportioned bash-up that continues to linger on the mystery of the titular character's identity. As mindlessly fun as the [sorely absent from the site] punch-up might be, one wonders if this is a step down from the vaguely introspective efforts of WWH. It's a welcome change of pace for Thor, who's tragically bogged down in his own slow moving rebirth, but surely there's a better balance somewhere in between!
- MAY080178 ROBIN #176 RIP $2.99
Batman's missing and Tim Drake's got to take the mantle!
Another surprisingly effective RIP teaser that really isn't giving any clues to the true fate of the Dark Knight, nor the likelihood of his successor! Definitely worth a look, Bat-fans!
- JUN080175 TRINITY #10 $2.99
Crime Syndicate has a much better ring to it than some monster whose name I don't know. Still, Trinity fails to impress from afar, proving to be considerably less enticing than I personally found Countdown to be! If only this were a weekly title introducing a fresh take on an old idea, instead of what feels like stale bread from the mid-nineties...
- JUN082309 VENOM DARK ORIGIN #1 (OF 5) $2.99
Continuing the theme of Brand New Day; Marvel pitch a new Spider-man story that needlessly revisits the past! A little clue for the kids who somehow think the cast of Maximum Carnage are importa t: they aren't! Shockingly enough, it looks like BND might have the more significant Venom story on the way...
