    • 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.

    I hope everyone’s holidays are going well so far, and while I mentioned in my last post that I was stepping out of the Spotlight for a bit, I thought I would pop in just to […]

    • 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…

    • I agree – now. At the time I read the What If…? I hadn’t actually read the actual Korvac Saga. I have since, but the punch of the What If has still stuck with me.

  • Some good comics this week – and we’ll get to that – but did
    any of the others have Fin Fang Foom? No. No, they did not, so there are

    • I do not believe Doom could become the Spirit of Vengeance. Unless He used the powers of the Sorcerer Supreme to force the Spirit to bond with him, which now that I think about it would account for the 1% weakness that allowed Thor + Phoenix to win. So complaint rescinded

  • Okay, so, yeah. No Spotlight today. Sorry.

    I’m just not feeling it, and I have some non-comics-related stuff to deal with today.

    The Spotlight will return next week, and one of these days I’ll get […]
