Wednesday's Reviews!

Once again, not the biggest of weeks. I seem to be saying that a lot lately. Boy, NEXT week is going to be HUGE! But still, some decent stuff. Except for Batman, Streets of Gotham, which for some reason, my store didn't get. Harumph!

First off of course, is Brightest Day #6. Lots of new and unnusual things are happening to our heroes. Martian Manhunter actually shows up, which makes me happy, because I am very fond of Martian Manhunter, and even fonder of Pat Gleason's artwork. J'onn realizes that Something Very Bad is loose on Earth, and enrolls Oracle for a little detective work.

Hawk is still trying to bully poor Deadman into resurrecting his brother, but THAT'S not going well. And it turns out that Deadman could really use a cheeseburger. He should get together with Hal sometime. They could have TWO Cheeseburgers!

Ronnie and Jason get together, but something is wrong, and it appears that there is a third entity in there with them. Time to call Professor Stein!

Mera spills the beans to Arthur. He take it fairly well, all things considered.

Too bad about Me'gann though. Bummer.

Justice Society of America #41 is a crossover with the JLA. Alan is still possesed by the Starheart, and Obsidian, has already gone bad. Again. But this time ALL the magical people are going nutso. I thought we'd get a chance to hang out with the Shade, but he's not in any position to be helping at the moment. Another bummer. And Mister Miracle shows up! For a few seconds my heart just skipped a beat, but it's just Shilo Norman, not Scott.

DC Universe: Legacies #3 continues to entertain me. The Mystery Men may have vanished, but new heroes have arisen in their absence, with first appearances by the Justice League and...and stuff. Just good old fashioned fun.

Prince of Power#3. This is still so much funnier than it has any right to be. Amadeus Cho is cruising with Thor, trying to assemble the ingredients of a potion to give one Godly powers, so that he can bring Hercules back.
They end up fighting the Egyptian Goddess Sekhmet, and it is...hilarious! Thor and Amadeus are as much fun as Hercules and Amadeus.

Time Masters: Vanishing Point #1 begins, with Rip Hunter, Booster Gold, Superman and Hal Jordan looking throughout Time for Batman. Rip is basically the only one who really knows what he's doing, although Booster is pretty supportive, which is nice. Superman keeps wanting to help people, and gets pissy when Rip tells him they can't interfere. Hal stands around looking stupid for the most part, which he does magnificently. Written by Dan Jurgens, and art by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund, basically it is a continuation of their work on Booster Gold. Batman doesn't even really show up, but I don't care. I'm going to enjoy the heck out of this.

I hope you all enjoyed YOUR books!

Time Masters: It was nice to see Booster being supportive of Rip and Hal/Superman only being around because Rip rather keep an eye on them than have them go off on their own. You could tell that Booster was amused with how Rip pulled rank. I don't know about you but I enjoyed the flashback at the start. Rip is/was adorable and Booster manages to become more awesome.

Rip WAS an awfully cute kid, wasn't he?

As you said, I think that personally, Booster was getting a little bit of a kick out of seeing Superman and Green Lantern being schooled by Rip. And considering the way that the two of them used to treat him, once can hardly blame him.

He even had his own uniform! I want adventures of little Rip al la Dennis the Menace!

Not to mention Superman treating (post-crisis) Rip bad in the last Time Masters series. After Booster went to the trouble of getting him to meet Rip, the guy only turns up to tell say Rip's crazy.

Superman can annoy me sometimes. I love him when he's well written...say by Grant Morrison. But he can be awfully judgemental, not to mention snarky upon occasion, when he's written by someone else. I must say that I don't care for the way that JMS is doing him at ALL!

I cannot believe they are screwing with M'Gann again. Midn you, I did enjoy the vomit scene. A ludicrous situation but amusing!

Saranga, all I can say is that it is awfully tough to be a Teen Titan. Those guys have a higher death rate than the JLI!
