Stuff I Bought

Now THAT'S a classy title, eh? Wednesday actually came on Thursday this week, but it being the end of the month, there were some very nice books coming out.

Firstly, there was more of the Great Fables Crossover, part 6 of 9, with The Literals, #2. I have to say that I'm enjoying this thoroughly. Last week, poor Bigby was turned into an adorable little girl. This week, Kevin Thorne still is wrestling with the problem of his twin brother Writer's Block, and thanks to Hansel, he comes up with a particularly...drastic method of dealing with it. And the Page sisters, set up one heck of a battle.

Final Crisis: Ink, #1. I am rather liking the new Tattooed Man, and his struggle to try and be one of the good guys is interesting. He's certainly a huge contrast to good old Mike, the Human Flame, who is a complete and utter degenerate. Nicely done, and I'm interested in where this is going.

Green Lantern #41. HOLY CRAP!!!!

The Incredible Hercules #129 just continues to be my favorite Marvel book. Who knew that the gateway to the afterworld is through a Casino? Greg Pak continues to entertain me.

The Justice League of America #33 is...actually, pretty good! It's nice when Dwayne McDuffie actually gets a chance to tell a story without editorial or crossover constraints. I continue to enjoy his take on John Stewart in particular.

The Justice Society of America #27. Obsidian shows up! Well...sort've. But at least he has some dialogue,which is a good thing. Too bad nobody believes him about the bad stuff that is going down.

Wonder Woman #32, continues to pile on the angst. Diana manages to fare pretty well against Genocide, although Ares manages to up the ante considerably, and frankly, I think that Zeus has completely lost his marbles. And Tom gets a rude awakening.

Trinity #52. We made it to the end! The world is being put back together, with a few small differences, and a few people alive who were formerlly dead, and some other stuff. Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman decided that being Gods was overrated, and Krona gets his. Morgaine Le Fay's fate is particularly choice. A decent series, not as spectacular as 52, but a heck of a lot better than Countdown.

Oh, and here's Hal.

Man...getting smacked around by Captain Atom is just embarrassing. This is from Action Comics Weekly,and the two of them went at it for several issues. Atom wasn't this rude to Guy, for Heaven's Sake! Guess Hal's famous charm didn't work on someone after all.

You don't get me THAT easily, my dear.

Saturday's post may be either really early or really late, since I'm heading out to Kinderhook, N.Y. for a Fife and Drum Muster this weekend.

I just read that issue of ACTION COMICS WEEKLY three days ago. Odd that.
