Good evening owls,
I'm not even sure I know what's going on in this book right now
it's a totally different kind of confusing and I'm honestly rather lost
right, what was out yesterday, I missed everything
Someone told me Bucky died again and I'm all for Spencer:Bucky::Giffen:Karate Kid
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.
Honestly I'm just ignoring it until I can read it all at once, right now
Okay, this is the chick we met last issue
docket's kind of open because I forgot what else we were thinking about?
Just gonna use this as an excuse to post WW lasso sketch I liked
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.
I dun wanna go running but I should, having spent the day mostly asleep
okay, here's the plot proper
we read that a while ago
And yeah, Amethyst gets weird and never really wraps up properly and then the mini gets *really* weird
That art is totally worth it though.
it's gorgeous, it's just moody, introspective, and a real shift from the previous run
I'm shocked that a Zub book sucks
he had a surprisingly poignant "advice from a failed comics writer" thread on twitter
I think my problem is that I don't give a shit about most of the characters or plots so it just feels like a drag.
The Miles thing was kind of interesting in theory but I didn't like how they resolved it.
Events are just too goddamn long. Secret Empire is solicited for what, 11 issues? And that's not counting build-up and aftermath. Everyone's books have to get rolled into this shit.
it's the plot to blow up Radiant City, blame it on Mr. X, and then rebuild properly
I would just like to say that I have seen enough commentary about autofellatio today to last me a lifetime.
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.
>a bunch of people got mad as hell at Lasso power creep,
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.
is it Izaakse, the one good artist on Buckybolts?
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.
okay those posters are the best thing this storytime
oh yeah, but I don't have the rest of the Thor run that goes into it
or it, come to think of it
I completely agree, that reminds me that I've actually know people who prefer PAD's Ocean Master to Johns' and I'm like, are you fucking me? Also, my bad on saying David instead of Dave.
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 think the next issue will wrap this arc up
I'm not a big Aquaman fan
aside from Tempestbut 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.
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!
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
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.
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!
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.
