Green Lantern Butt's FOREVER!

Now with Guy Gardner's Seal of Approval!

Thursday, September 06, 2012


This was...something of an interesting week.  I'm still of two minds about several of my comics.

Action Comics #0

Well...I guess we started all over again?  I have got to repeat, that I love Clark running around in those old work boots, T-shirt and jeans.  And I enjoyed the little boy who used his cape.  The art was very pretty.   And I guess that the second story, was just more about that guy from last month or so.

This was a slightly mixed bag...but not bad at all.

Fairest #7

What the heck?  Beast is chasing some evil Fable, and competing with St. George, and she turns out to be a Lamia, and she's really Beauty? 


That...that was weird.

Green Lantern #0

I...I don't really know what to think quite yet.

The Phantom Stranger #0

Again...I'm not exactly sure of what is going on here.  Is the Phantom Stranger supposed to be Judas Iscariot?  I thought that the thirty pieces of silver as his chain was actually rather clever, except that he wore a medallion, and a rockin' turtleneck back in the old days.


I am missing the old days more and more.  But if he fights with that Pandora chick, and we get the OLD CONTINUITY back, then I'll be happy. 

Man, I'm really starting to repeat myself.

Swamp Thing #0

Well, this was pretty good.  It was mostly about Arcane, and what a complete ratbastard he is, and a little bit of background, pre-Alex Holland, getting blown up.  Not bad.  Not bad at all.

Hawkeye #2

I picked up number one, on a whim, and I was awfully glad that I did.  I'm am just as pleased with number two.  The art is great, and the story is interesting, and it has Kate Bishop in it, and she rocks pretty darned well.  It has superheroes, but it is one of the kind of story, where it doesn't really matter, because the threat and the people fighting the threat don't actually HAVE super-powers.  Just darned good story-telling.

The Mighty Thor #19

We continue with the "Everything Burns" storyline, where all of the things that Loki has been up to lately seem to be coming back to bite him in his adorable little behind.  The sad thing, is that all of the things that are so horrendous, he actually did with the best of intentions. 

Surtur is stirring up all kinds of trouble, and there seems to be a fair amount of mind control going on, which Heimdall acknowledges, and the Warriors Three are acting a bit squirrely.  Thor, bless his heart, is still standing up for his little brother, who is also doing his very best to figure a way out of the mess.  And as for that last page...well I didn't see that coming.  Not at all.  And it doesn't really make much sense really, so I'm not necessarily taking it at face value.

But I am looking forward to seeing how all this shakes down.

So definitely a rather thought-provoking week.

It might have been a Who's Who or a Secret Origins, but in Ye Olde universe it was hinted that Phantom Stranger was the Wandering Jew. I thoroughly enjoyed that bit of obscure folklore.

Well I did not know that. I prefer to have his background...mysterious. Unknown even.

And I miss his hot turtleneck and medallion.

I remember that issue: it had 3 possible origins for the 'Stranger!

I suppose that when we inevitably go back to the REAL DC Universe, we can pretend all of this didn't happen.

I don't have to wait; I can pretend the New52 didn't happen already!

Except for Green Lantern, which can't tell it happened and remains awesome.

I agree with your Hawkeye review. Best stuff Fraction has put out in awhile!
After a great start, I have really not been enjoying Action Comics. I think the superman books are about the weakest of the "main" new 52 books, which is a shame. I think Superman was at his best in the 80's when John Byrne rebooted him. If you haven't read his run, I highly recommend it!
Thanks again for entertaining blog!

Thanks, Cat. I too loved the first issues of Action. Lately, it seems to have gone off the rails just a wee bit.
