We had a lovely time, although it is a lot of work, going on vacation! Yeesh! Still, the beer and the wine was cold, the Porsches and Corvettes were speedy, and the tiki bar was much appreciated. I brought my books from last Wednesday along to read, but still haven't had time to finish all of them, so reviews, are more or less...sketchy.
Squirrel Girl, Ms. Marvel and Hellcat were all a hoot as usual. A hoot and a half, for sure! Doctor Strange was good.
I did buy the new DC Rebirth book.
It was...well, I was happy to see Wally, certainly. But...but what the HELL?
The last few years of 52 DC comics were all the fault of...Doctor Manhattan from Watchmen? I know that DC has been busy stripping the last wee bits of meat off of the corpse of Watchmen, but seriously? It pretty much just made me shake my head in complete bafflement. I...I don't even know how it would even work!
If Geoff Johns had just decided to say, the hell with it, and had Superman standing in the shower, and it all being a dream, I would have been perfectly willing to accept that the last few years were nothing more than an Elsewhere story. PERFECTLY HAPPY! But now? Well, I'll be very glad to know that Ted Kord and Jaime Reyes, Wally, Donna Troy, and a whole lot of other people are back, but now I'm feeling a bit ornery...not to mention skeptical. It IS possible to just overthink things sometimes.
And don't get me started on what Marvel has done with Captain America. I was feeling very kindly thoughts about Marvel...and then they had to go and screw things up.
So now, although most of my books were really very good, I'm feeling...surly.
