Why, it WAS a Good Week!

Whew! Just back from Kalinara's latest Flame Wars and it was SOOOO refreshing! Snapper Carr Sucks! Woohoo!

I still haven't quite recovered from the shock of the blatant shaving of my Shi Tzu, but on the other hand, it WAS a heck of a good week for comics, so I guess I'll just have to adjust. I managed to get TWO Westerns; the Lone Ranger and Bat Lash, which was nice. Then there was Countdown, Suicide Squad, Green Arrow & Black Canary, Salvation Run, Countdown to Mystery, JLA Classified, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern Corps, Booster Gold, X-Factor and the Punisher.

Oh, and some more Starman trades, because that series was AWESOME!

Booster Gold, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern Corps were my favorites, but most of the others were pretty good too.

I have to admit however, that my patience is starting to run out for Green Arrow and Black Canary. The art, was and remains beautiful...Cliff Chiang can draw like nobody's business, but the plot, OH the plot is beginning to drive me mad.

From out of nowhere, Ollie and Dinah are disguised and chasing down leads about a giant invisible ship. Wha huh? They end up with their "cover" blown, then Ollie yells at poor Roy a bit, and then Mia drives them around in a van for a while while Ollie angsts some more. I STILL don't think that poor Dinah has even gotten laid yet. Then they end up getting CHASED by the large formerly invisible flying ship.

Which leads to this...

I have to say, that the art is just spectacular. And yes, Dinah probably IS a better driver than Ollie. Ollie starts shooting at the large floating ship from the back of the motorcycle, which leads to an admittedly amusing moment, when he grabs a glue arrow by mistake. Believe it or not...(and I'm having a wee bit of trouble believing it) they actually DO manage to shoot down the ship, and run over and take a look at the pilots...!


You know something Dinah? I didn't see that coming either. And what's more I find it to be LUDICROUS!

Where's Hal when you really need him?

So who the heck ARE those guys? They don't look like Space-Cabby, Tommy Tomorrow, or any of the other ka-billion alien races I know.

Hmmmm ... Maybe I'll wait for the GA-BC trade with this storyline. :-)

Furthermore, no matter WHAT Ollie says, they don't look anything LIKE Butt-Monkeys.

Why oh why does Winnick seem to feel that he has to "top" himself with each supposed cliff hanger in each issue? There just doesn't seem to be a natural flow to the narrative in my opinion. It's just angst, angst, angst, action and Whu Huh? Every Single Issue.

Didn't see that coming? Oh, now, Sally... haven't you ever read a Judd Winick story?

The plot builds, get interesting, then our heroes round a corner and...

a alien / monster /demon shows up.

This is happens in almost every Winick story.

So...it's not just me being nitpicky?
