Slightly Delayed Reviews

Sorry about that.  I know that you all plan your weeks around my reviews, and being delayed will possibly throw you into an existential tizzy...but...what is that?  Nobody cares?


Anyhoo, the snow storm dumped about 10 inches upon us, so I didn't go to the Comic Book Store on Wednesday.  Hell, I didn't go to work on Wednesday!  And after the day that I had Tuesday, that was a blessing.  Not a lot of books anyway, but what there were...were pretty decent.

Fairest #23

The adventures of Cinderella and a lot of mice continue.  One of her evil Stepsisters has shot the Fairy Godmother, and Cindy hooks up with...some blue guy, and there is a temple of rats, and...quite frankly it is a bit convoluted.  Interesting, but convoluted.  Not bad...just convoluted.

Forever Evil #5

I know, I know, I swore that I wouldn't get sucked into this, but hell, it had Sinestro in it.  I know that I am weak.

Lex has put together his own little Justice League of a sort, with himself of course, Black Adam, Black Manta, Captain Cold, Sinestro, Catwoman and...Batman.  Seriously, watching all these Alpha Males jockey for precedence was the funniest part of the issue.  Not that the issue was particularly funny.  But they have risen up against the Syndicate, and manage to take down Gargantua, Shadow Thief, Killer Croc, Deathstroke, and a Large Angry Man.  Oh, and Bizarro is working for Lex too.

Of all of these people, the only ones that I can remotely stand, are Captain Cold and maybe Catwoman, although I have a slight sneaking fondness for Black Adam, who still can't talk too well.  Lex manages to talk Deathstroke into working for him, because Deathstroke is a weasel.  Oh, and Sinestro of course, who is really the only smart one in the bunch...including Batman.

Sinestro manages to kill Power Ring, much to their mutual satisfaction, and then yells at Batman for not having worn his yellow ring when he had the chance, which is such a Sinestro sort of thing to do.  And evil Superman is pissed because he has eaten all the Kryptonite on earth, and evil Flash is being evil, and oh crap, the thing that they left evil Earth for, has followed them to not-evil Earth.

I...just want this to all be over.   Please God, make it stop!

Green Lantern/Red Lantern #28 Flipbook

This was...pretty damned good!

Loki: Agent of Asgard #1


I was a little worried about a Loki without Kieron Gillen, but Al Ewing has taken my newest favorite under his wing, and run with him, and it is a joy.  The art isn't too bad either!

Old Evil Loki is dead.  Young adorable Loki is also dead.  We now have slightly ambiguous teen Loki, who enjoys singing in the shower, and doing daring deeds for the All-Mother, in an attempt to rewrite his sordid history, and it is fabulous.

His first task is to break into Avengers Headquarters, ostensibly to wipe out the computer records of himself, and incidentally to find out why Thor is being such a JERK to everyone!  Thor yelled at the All Mother, threw his mead on a serving wench, fought with Fandral, and is being rude and sullen to everyone in the Avengers.  Loki is caught, but manages to start the Avengers all arguiing amongst themselves, and the part where Hawkeye tries to shoot him, but accidentally hits Banner instead is simly hilarious.

While the brouhaha is going on, Loki sneaks in and hacks the computers.  The all bust in after him, and he uses a rather interesting sword to stab Thor, which makes all the evil nasty stuff that was infecting him, come oozing out, which Loki then traps in a jar.  Oh, and he gets punched by the Hulk.

Later, Thor is sitting with Loki, who is chained up in some detainment cell, and they have a nice discussion, a few apologies and a beer...before Loki makes what Thor calls his "inevitable escape".  It's lovely.  Loki then brings back the jar of Bad Stuff to the All-Mother, with a warning that it is pretty BAD.  Naturally they open it up, and who should pop out but the ghost of Old Loki.

Oh Crap!

This is fabulous.  And also this.

Heh. That's something of an ambiguous statement, Dwayne! I do wish to see the Lego Movie, it has received 4 stars in our local newspaper!
