Reviews...and a little Beefcake on the Side

Great Googally Moogally, this was a fabulous week! Not a whole lot, but still...very very nice.

We begin of course with Batman & Robin #14, and I am simply enthralled. Poor poor Damian. He may be one tough kid, but he still IS only a kid, and he's going up against the Joker. The Joker and his motives are amazing, and quite believable, all things considered. Oh, and Professor Pyg makes his triumphant return, and all sorts of nasty things are going on.

This is fabulous.

Batman: Odyssey #3. This is of course, quite ridiculous. The narration is completely over the top, and most of it doesn't make a whole lot of sense really, but the art is sensational, and oh, what the heck, I'm enjoying it thoroughly is a campy sort of way. This is what I rather expected Robinson's Justice League to be. It wasn't but I'm still having fun. Mostly I suppose, because I enjoy Batman looking like a jackass once in a while. Or more than once in a while. Ok, all of the time.

Booster Gold #36. Oh, the merry mayhem continues. They do manage to stop the planet pounder thingie, but that's because the Dark Stars had a remote with an off button. Ted lets his hormones get the best of him, with rather drastic results. He and Booster get thrown into a weird space prison with none other than Vril Dox, just before The Invasion. Just more silly fun, but I really like silly sometimes.

Green Lantern #57. This Is Great.


Justice League: Generation Lost #9. Oh Max, you scoundrel you. Hiding in plain sight, Max and Bea have a little discussion. Bea is not happy about it. The rest of the team is still bickering, much to Blue Beetle's dismay. I still wish that Guy would show up so that he could hang out with someone who ISN'T so cranky. Gavril is trying to get back on his feet, and Skeets is eavesdropping on Max's computer stuff, which proves unfortunate. Max gets pissed and forces Fire to flame all over the rest of them, which is certainly an unpleasant thing to do. Fortunately Capt. Atom is able to get her to cool down, while Max seems to be losing some of his powers while fighting Booster. Oh, and Max decides to recruit none other than Magog, to go after Capt. Atom.

Oh THAT's going to turn out well!

I enjoy Brightest Day, and with all of my reservations about Winick, I still find that I'm enjoying JLI:GL, mainly I suppose, because I love all of the characters so much. Well, not Captain Shinypants so much, but heck, even Atom has been tolerable in this. I also have a theory about why Tora is acting the way that she is.

Thor The Mighty Avenger #4. This book gets more adorable with every issue. Samnee's art is bright, vivid, clear and just goshdarnded CUTE!
Thor still has memory problems about exactly WHY he's on Midgard, but he's very glad to see the Warriors Three, who unfortunately for him, can't tell him why he's exiled. But they do decide to go out for a nice drink at a nice tavern in Trondheim, that they visited about 1000 years ago, and are hoping is still there. They take a wrong turn at Albuquerque and end up in England, and have a slight run-in with Captain Britain, but it all works out well.

I LOVE this!

And I haven't forgotten about Beefcake Week. There have been some simply lovely examples on various other blogs, such as Liss's "Comics Make Me Happy", Fish-Flavored Baseball and Boosterific!

This next offering is QUITE impressive!


Hoohboy! I do believe that's Spartan from WILDcats, in that crossover they did with the X-Men, way back when. Back when Greg Land could still draw. All I can say,is that's one impressive looking Android!

When Greg Land could still draw? I dunno, looks like that was ripped straight from a porno, too. It's his favorite source material, y'know. :/

I'm kind of glad that Tora stood up for herself a little this issue of JL:GL. Sure, she's been annoyingly whiny, but everyone else has been callously dismissive of her feelings, too, and it's really not helping. Captain Atom seems like the only who who's actually talking to her, and he's being a bit of a whiny jerk about it, himself.

Ted is adorable with fur, isn't he?

Poor Tora. She's just NOT enjoying herself very much lately. I can only assume it's because she misses Guy.

But Ted WAS adorable. I also really hope that he manages to get turned back, although I suppose that he could hang out with Ch'p or something.

I do hope that Skeets is going to be ok.

Um...is that a girl's elbow in that pic...? Do I want to know?

I think Beefcake/Cheesecake Week should be extended to another week!

At 3:02 PM, Blogger SallyP said...

Heh. Why yes it is a girl's elbow. Whatshername from WILDcats, the former stripper with the tattoos. My mind's gone completely blank on her name unfortunately.

This...was an interesting comic.

Voodoo is the name you're searching for.

Thank you! I remembered it about 4:00 a.m., which is usually the way that these things happen.

The X-Men/WILDcats crossover was...interesting. The one previous to this had Travis Charest artwork, which was gorgeous. Land's art in this one was nicely done as well. He gave Storm a nice strong acquiline nose, which was appealing.
