JLA was okay, if still mediocre as fuck. At least the microverse thing is finally going to get started.

WW was fine, though notable for two things: 1) a bunch of people got mad as hell at Lasso power creep, and it was hilarious. 2) Mayfly is back. Yeah, of all the obscure rogues to bring out. Neat.

It was some straight up Silver Age shit.

Not really sure why people got mad. This isn't the craziest thing the Lasso has ever been involved with. Remember the time it broke, and the very concept of Truth itself started to break down? Objective reality stopped working because the Lasso of Truth was broken.

Reversing gene therapy is tame in comparison.

Hopefully this one will be more based on the original story. Last one was basically Timm and Dini taking some bits from it and doing their own thing with it.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, Superman vs a Clone that's basically People's Perception of him is a sweet fight, but when you were hoping for more Doomsday or the various Superman replacements, it's kinda disappointing. Didn't even have Bibbo for fuck's sake.

It's contained not one, but two blasts from a pair of nuclear payloads. In the same arc, it was used to wrangle a fire. Diana just loops the fucking thing around a building that's on fire, and pulls it away.

Impossible you say? Fire isn't solid it can't be contained? Lasso of Truth don't care. Lasso of Truth can grab hold of anything. Except the Mansplaining.

I forgot about that Magik part, but that is consistent with every other teleporting thing. America can't teleport through the shield, and Nightcrawler can't seem to teleport either.
I was referring more to Emma being hidden away in the shadows in it. In every Blue issue she is out in the open in New Tian, and in that sidebook (like Choosing Sides and Frontline) she is posing for movie premeire events in the public eye.

I have literally everything ever so I can upload if there's enough support for it.

I bought the trades of it on clearance for like a dollar each about a year ago and it was decent fun.

They need to bring back Mike Johnson on Supergirl, it was good enough that I actually bought it back then and it steeled appealed to TV folks plenty.

I'm not a big Aquaman fan aside from Tempest but from what I've seen there's a general split where people either like PAD's mythos or Johns' and don't really split things between them.

>>94210215
Thanks.

I agree again but I feel like I'm in the minority on these storytimes that I just don't care for Bedard generally. Granted, I haven't read his R.E.B.E.L.S but his New Guardians was so bland and his Blue Beetle was really fucking awful. Please inform me what I'm missing about him!

REBELS and KFC mostly
>>
>>94210260
To be fair, we know now in detail that those were from the most and worst editorially ridden period of the New 52. Given more room, he has a nice hand with some deep cuts, shenanigans, and a reasonably clever and amoral Vril

Also KFC comics
>>
>>94210260
Kentucky Fried Chicken. And yeah, REBELS is great.
>>
>>94210215
Thanks again OP
>>
>>94210246
I'm not even talking about the mythos, I actually prefer how PAD went about it. I'm talking about how PAD and Johns wrote Orm. Orm under Johns at least to me is just so much more interesting than how PAD wrote him and I thought that was the widespread consensus.
>>
>>94210260
KFC, REBELS was decent

also he wrote Sinestro making Kyle Rayner look like a bitch when he was on GLC so I appreciate that

And those are the series that I haven't read yet, will have to check them out then, thanks anons!!

>>94210215
Thanks for posting as always, Storyteller.

This was a bit better, since it was, y'know, coherent. Gotta say, I don't think I like black and white, everything just kind of blends together.

Well, back to Gravity Rush, I guess, cause that shit makes hella sense!

Do you think we'll ever see The Rise of the Seven Seas in some shape or form?
>>
>>94210024
Ivy League keeps on complaining about not getting an Ivy book and I'm in my corner alone just wanting a Rogues book which will never happen.
>>
>>94210407
lol

>>94210365
>coherent

>>94210407

That is an impressive cover.

So, coming in super late here- I ended up reading the first three issues of this thanks to the friendly anon who tossed an upload over.

Enjoyed them pretty well, but man there's something lost without the communal reading, y'know.

And SDCC made it super hard to catch up with things because of SoP spam.
On that note- What... news actually came out of SDCC because I was completely uninvested.
>>
>>94208220
Continuing with the good shit, I see.
>>
>>94212354
There were a lot of little things announced. Only Terrifics stuck with me as something I might try to read.
>>
>>94212354
>>94213061
I still have no idea what exactly was announced.
