reviews and all that jazz
Well the snowstorm didn't stop the delivery of my precious books, although things were a little more chaotic than usual.
Arthur and meta continue their quest for Arthur's mommy with interesting results. Mera pulls a fast one on grodd, and frankly, Arthur is lucky that she is there to pull his chestnuts out of the fire! they do stumble across mommy dearest eventually, but she doesn't seem All that happy to see them.
Not bad at all.
Well things are just going downhill rapidly at this point. Why do people even bother to live in Gotham anyway? the venom that has been created is notonly nasty, but lethal, and Jim Gordon has been infected too. Batman is actually starting to sound a wee bit frantic.
The kicker is that apparently the joker is someone akin to vandal savage, or rah's Al ghoul, in that he may be immortal. There is also the good chance that he knows perfectly well bat's true identity. I guess this would explain how the noker always comes back from certain death, but you would think that they could still find a better prison for him than just stuffing him back in arkham. Maybe superman or hal could fly him put to space and maroon him on a comet or something?
This is still pretty great though, but I am not really sure how batman is going to get out of this one... and that is why we will be back for the next issue
Scary as all heck.
Gotham academy #4
This is an interesting little book, and I am starting to enjoy it, although I am still having a little trouble with who is who still. olive does find out some secrets which is always a good thing.
Red lanterns #38
Guy is cranky
And speaking of cranky! sinestro and company find a bunch of dead korugarians which is bad enough, but it is a trap laid for him by...mongul! I actually have a little trouble taking Mongol seriously anymore since the green lanterns have kicked his butt so many times, but he seems to be giving sinestro a run for his money.
Good silly fun in a violent comic booky way.
Well we finally have new Thor vs old very very cranky Thor. Thor Odin son has just woken up without his arm or his axe or mjollnir and he is not in a good mood. Plus, Odin says that his mom is missing, so off he goes and he and new lady Thor fight for a while,toll he realizes that somehow she is making his hammer do wild and whacky new tricks. it wasn't actually jord who is his real mother who was frozen in ice but freyja, who is more or less his stepson, but family relations can vet tricky with the aesir.
Frankly Thor has been an asshole lately... but this is still very good stuff.
Incidentally I apologize for things not being capitalized and stuff. I am typing this on my new tablet and still haven't worked all the bugs, since I am more or less computer challenged
