Is it because it is a five-week month, or was this past week a bit on the sparse side? In fact it seems as though ALL the weeks of March have been a bit thin. It will probably be brutal next Wednesday.

Not a whole lot out there, but still...a decent week.

Batman: Streets of Gotham #10 was pretty good. Damian is in over his head, which I tend to think is actually good for him. Just hope he doesn't actually lose it...permanently. Manhunter continues to be pure enjoyment.

Green Lantern #52...Oh, you know the drill. I'll get to this tomorrow. But man, it was Amazing!

Justice League: The Rise of Arsenal #1

Well! They are still ladleing out the pain and angst for poor Roy by the bucketsfull in this issue. Through the power of flashbacks, we are able to see him get his arm ripped off all over again, not to mention seeing little Lian's last agonizing moments. Ollie is acting shifty, Hal and Dinah are sympathetic, and Roy is losing his mind, quite possibly literally. And just so that we don't think getting one's arm ripped off is simply, it turns out that Prometheus ALSO injected Roy with nano-thingies...just to make getting a cybernetic arm that much more difficult.

Prometheus was a real jerk.

Next month, watch as the writers go back and kick puppies.

Power Girl on the other hand, was hilarious AND exciting. The cover has to be one of the best I've seen...and it ACTUALLY IS IN THE BOOK! Terra helps Peej get free of Satanna's little trap, and then Kara gets blackmaile by the kid into going with him to the Comic Book Shop, teaching some bullies a lesson, and helping him to pick up a girl that he likes. Actually only the first of those things actually happens, but she's working on the rest. AFTER she figures out just what has gotten into Terra.

I am going to miss Amanda Conner, Gray and Palmiotti SO MUCH! I'm going to give Winick a chance...but he'd better not blow it.

So, am I the only one who thought that it was ENTIRELY appropriate that the kid in the Power Girl comic was wearing a GREEN LANTERN shirt? ;-) Certainly, there's no love lost between Peej and Hal!

That was such a nice little touch. Manhunter's little boy Ramsey had a Green Lantern shirt too...or was it pajamas?

I wonder if the heroes get a cut of their merchandise profits?

I imagine the Justice League have some sort of representative who comes up with licensing agreements. Probably one hired by Bruce Wayne, though the person probably doesn't know that (many intermediaries).

Or it could be a holdover from the JLI days. max Lord has to have set up something like that when he was running the show.

There would also probably be bootleg, unlicensed merchandise, where it's altered just enough there can't be a lawsuit, or something.

I'm thinking about this too much. I agree about Winick. I have nothing against him, but I don't necessarily have anything for him, either.

See, this is one of the reasons that we need Max Lord back. The REAL Max, not the crazy one whose neck got snapped. He'd have the Justice League, the JSA AND the Titans operating in the black in no time at all. Wally wouldn't have to worry about how to feed his family anymore. Hal could actually pay Barry back for all of those years of mooching. Wayne Enterprises could make a killing!

Clearly, Max and L-Ron need to turn up (wearing Hawaiian shirts) and reveal that they've been beachcombing on Kooeykooeykooey all this time, and therefore that other Max was an imposter.

I can't agree more, Arynne!

It WOULD be the simplest way for Max to come back, wouldn't it?
