    • Yeah, Giles was astonishingly bad.
      Which is a shame, because it was a set-up that actually had a fair amount of potential, but it ended up being like “I fed 10,000 lines of Joss Whedon dialogue into a bot and had it write a comic book.”

  • For the sake of mixing things up every so often, I’ve decided to do something a bit different today. Instead of talking about one of the latest comics I’ve bought or one from my existing library of comics, I want […]

  • While there were some good books in my stack this week, I have to admit that nothing really jumped out at me as Spotlight material.

    There was, however, some significant industry news this past week, and so I […]

    • Well, this was just a small dose; there are some other sequences that are bit more obnoxious. And honestly, it’s not that bad…yet. But it’s clear (especially given what Bendis has done with some of the dialogue he’s put in the mouth of Bart’s grandfather in Superman and Action) where it can – and likely will – lead.
      But, as with all things, mileage varies, and it took me some time to become allergic to Bendis dialogue.

    • Lana Lang dated Vartox.
      That tells you everything you need to know about her.

    • That’s just unverified gossip from that scandal sheet The Daily Tattler. You can’t trust them – they’re actual fake news.
      (In the sense that it’s a fictional newspaper.)

  • Taking a bit of a holiday break and stepping out of the Spotlight.

    See you in the new year, and in the meantime, make your holidays happy and read comics!

    • Question if the New Gods have died then shouldn’t New New Gods be born just as they were born of the death of the Old Gods?

      • The New Gods weren’t born of the deaths of individual gods. The energies that were released in the final, cataclysmic battle between the old gods destroyed them, then coalesced into New Genesis and Apokolips, upon which the New Gods were born.
        Kirby originally envisioned doing the Fourth World stories at Marvel, and the New Gods would have been the Asgardians reborn after Ragnarok.

  • Yeah, that makes more sense than Trump and Etrigan. Still, my quick glance and misread of a tweet made for a more interesting visual…
