The Deep Dish...
- JUN080263 BATMAN STRIKES #48 $2.25
With a plot dangerously similar to Arnold Schwarzenegger's schemes in the 1997 flop, Batman and Robin; this issue of The Batman Strikes! isn't going out of it's way to make friends!
Based on the current cartoon series which seems to be growing disturbingly popular with this generation's youth; the issue starts on the back foot, associated with the series' seperatist interpretations of many classic Batman characters.
For it's many frustrating faults, it's fair to say there's a handful of positives to be found in the edgy new(ish) toon, making select outings with the comic series worth a look. All of this is really just a long way of saying: Green Lantern and Batman teaming up to stop Mr. Freeze's sub-zero satellite sounds like a lot of fun!
- JUN080216 BOOSTER GOLD #11 $2.99
Chuck Dixon steps into a pretty big shadow when he takes on the fan wank that is Booster Gold (title). For all intents and purposes this sounds like a very fun issue that dives, once again, into the history of the Bat-corner of the DCU. Under ordinary circumstances I would get a huge kick out of this, but in this modern age of internet and instant gratification, I find my tolerance for overblown internet memes growing increasingly minor. Adopting morts in an ironic dose of tongue-in-cheek humor is always going to have it's place, but with so many blogs doing it these days, it just hasn't the same impact.
I don't want to be a curmudgeon. Booster Gold undercover as Killer Moth to fix a glitch in the timestream is nice enough. It's just that I'm getting a headache from all the involuntary eye rolling. And just to prove I don't hate Killer Moth or fun: Appreciate and Preserve!
- JUN080080 BPRD THE WARNING #2 (OF 5) $2.99
- JUN080081 HELLBOY THE CROOKED MAN #2 (OF 3) $2.99
Fans of the film might be encouraged to check out the latest Hellboy mini-series, but if you enjoyed new inclusions like Johann Kraus, BPRD might be more to the flavour you're seeking. While the hornless Hellboy rarely appears, if at all, don't let the absence of the star fool you into thinking the BPRD series are B-tier material. Over the past year a regular release schedule has seen some great stories unfold in a familiar - but different - Mignola style!
- JUN080220 GREEN LANTERN CORPS #27 $2.99
Drop the boy, drop the boy! I'm the man, yes I am!
Whoops! Note-to-self: Luke Ross on pencils. Luke Ross!
This one sounds like a whole lot of foreshadowing as Peter Tomasi brings us the grand opening of a new Warrior bar, and warnings from beyond the grave! Saarek, a Green Lantern who can hear the dead, seems to think the passed are getting restless -- a precursor to Blackest Night and the promised 2009 introduction of the undead Black Lanterns, to be sure! Can't wait!
- JUN082335 LAST DEFENDERS #6 (OF 6) $2.99
Please, please, please, please remember to protect the trademark, Marvel!
I don't think I could bare the thought of a Marvel Universe without any ragtag team-ups in their future! Come on! The Defenders are an institution, people! This cannot be the last of it!
- JUN082338 MARVEL ADVENTURES HULK #14 $2.99
The Marvel Adventures office are back on track with classic comics, this time pitting the incredible Hulk against a classic Fantastic Four nemesis! No problem, right? Wrong!!!
Everybody knows the Hulk gets his strength from his mindless rages, but when he's sucked into the Microverse, he'll hope that news hasn't travelled too far! Hulk's going up against the Psycho-Man, a man who can manipulate his emotions and take away his anger! Uh-oh!
- JUN082339 MARVEL ADVENTURES SPIDER-MAN #42 $2.99
Not quite getting enough out of your Marvel Adventures stack?
How about another serve of classic conundrums as Spidey finds himself in a tangle between the Black Cat and Puma! Those still reeling from the outrage of Brand New Day can find some measure of calm in the classic antics of the Marvel Adventures books!
- JUN082381 PUNISHER KILLS MARVEL UNIVERSE $4.99
What part of Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe don't you understand?
- JUN082353 SECRET INVASION INHUMANS #1 (OF 4) SI $2.99
I don't know what the creative team of Joe Pokaski and Tom Raney does for you, but even if you're finding yourself bored to tears with Secret Invasion, this four-issue mini might be worth checking out. The Inhumans aren't especially inviting as stars of a series, but each series has a way of being a bit of a hidden gem, so you might like to get in early on this one!
We learnt of Black Bolt's replacement in the pages of New Avengers: Illuminati, but now the hunt is on to discover the true whereabouts of the Inhuman monarch! If he turns up dead, I wonder if this means Medusa might think about checking out what Captain Britain has to offer... Hey, why not? Plundering Alex Ross alternate Earths has worked out pretty good for DC!
