Tiny Tiny Reviews

Goodness, but that was a small week! Having five weeks in the month always seems to screw things up. I only got three books...well, four, but Action Comics was from last week, when I was too dim to remember to pick it up.

But let's start with Action /comics #896. Basically, I've gotten this because the Secret Six are in it. I haven't been following it particularly closely, although for some reason Lex Luthor seems to be the "hero" of the book. He hires the Six, and Vandal Savage shows up, and there is a lot of violence of course. That was nice. I imagine that it will all be finished over in the regular Secret Six book, which I was actually expecting THIS week...but no cigar. The second feature with Jimmy Olsen was actually quite amusing, and the art was quite pretty.

Brightest Day #17 was a fair amount of fun. I find that I am enjoying Deadman a lot. Gosharootie, but he's hot! Apparently Dove thinks so, at any rate, since they seem to be...er...having relations. Along with cheeseburgers, an excellent reason to be alive! Boston discovers that his Grandfather is still alive, although suitably ancient, and the two of them are getting along like a house afire,when the white ring that Boston is still wearing...increases its energy level...just like the black rings did when someone died. In this case, maybe the energy increases when you are having...fun?

Oh, and Firestorm ends up in the Anti-Matter Universe, and fend off some shadow demons, and are headed for Qward, where Boston foolishly left that little bit of Life Energy that the Weaponer has been using so forcefully against the Green Lanterns. I smell a crossover! This really was a pretty decent issue.

Jonah Hex #63 was very nice as usual. A trio of dignitaries from some town approach Hex, and offer a VERY nice bounty to take out a particularly revolting bad guy. Hex accepts and has some disturbing flashbacks to when he was a kid, and the death of one of his friends. Let's just say that it never pays to double-cross Jonah Hex.

Finally I picked up the Starman/Congorilla #1 book. And...it wasn't terrible at all. Mikal is still grieving for Tony, and Bill is still trying to find his missing friend, and they all end up finding a lot more than they bargained for. The Fountain of Youth and a Lazarus pit come into the story, and you won't believe who shows up hale and hearty after becoming a decorating accessory in Cry for Justice! For that alone, I am happy.

So...a small week indeed. But a pretty good one nevertheless.

I'm still wondering just how long before Deadman goes back to being dead. Interesting twist -- usually when heroes DIE, fans sit around waiting for them to come back to life. THIS time fans are waiting for one to go back to being dead!

I have to say that I'm rather enjoying Deadman. He's awfully cute for one thing...and he's just so awkward at this whole "living" thing.

But he's discovered that there ARE perks! Such as cheeseburgers and sex apparently.

This whole Deadman-is-finding-love-and-enjoying-life thing is making me nervous. I don't think this is going to end well....

Who knows HOW it is all going to end, Liss. I do know one thing. Deadman is surprisingly gorgeous. I mean...who knew?
