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.

Aquaman #38 

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.

Batman #38

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.

Good stuff

Red lanterns #38

Guy is cranky

Sinestro #38

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.

Thor #4

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

Sally, what do you think of this idea of the Joker as an immortal? Do you think it's a swerve, or does Snyder really mean to do it? If it's for real, do you think it's a good idea?

Just based on what I've seen online, I kind of think Bats got dosed with some gas, and this is like a "worst nightmare" scenario running in his head.

Knowing Snyder, I am sure that there is an interesting twist coming. Not sure that I really am all that excited about the Joker being immortal... Bats already has Ras as an enemy who can't be killed... does he really need another?

I've long had the pet theorem that the Lords of Order and Chaos created both Batman and the Joker, and that Batman is the only one who actually could kill the Joker. So to me, immortal in that fashion. Immortal for centuries prior? No, that I don't buy, at least not with his special pigmentation.

Now that's an interesting theory, Randy!

Sometimes, I just wish that Superman would just chuck him into the sun though.
