I tried so hard to post every day this week, but I failed yesterday. I just can't find time to do anything anymore.
I read a bunch of comics this week. Here's some of them:
So Damian isn't so into Ra's Al Ghul's plan to use his body as a host. So he hightails it to Wayne Manor to find his dad. Instead he runs into Robin, and Tim isn't happy to see him. They get into it.
Tim wakes up after being knocked unconscious, and mistakes Damian helping Alfred up after he trips for Damian trying to kill Alfred. Oops!
Alfred totally tears a strip off of Tim. It's rad:
But I still think the writing is good, because the characterization is good. And it kinda tied into Sinestro Corps, but not enough to put that on the cover.
It started off in Supergirl's apartment, which I thought was cool. She has a mysterious present on her coffee table. It's lead and soundproofed. She finally just decides to open it. This gets her a phone call from Batman.
SG gets the call from Superman and soars into battle.
The All-New Atom #17
Especially after this awesome Picoult dig:
She looks so dope on that motorcycle!
This issue gives us more of the Ryan/Giganta relationship, which, as it turns out, is still happening. Fantastic!
I also loved this misunderstanding:
Justice League Unlimited #39
Also, as I've mentioned before, this is the only comic that completely ignores all the depressing continuity and offers month after month of fun stories about dead characters. I love it.
I mean, how can you not love this?
The ending of this comic was solid gold:
Metal Men #4
Just look at this crazy steam shovel that the Metal Men join together to build:
Gold and Lead have exchanged identities, and Lead (now Gold) is trying to cheer his friend up. It's pretty cute.
I thought this was pretty neat:
Actually, this comic did come dangerously close to Jeph Loeb-levels of Superman-crushing-on-Batman-through-obsessive-interior-monologues. Superman was thinking of him almost constantly throughout the issue.
So now the Third Kryptonian is gone. We hardly knew ye, What's-her-name!
