SPOILERS: Grayson #1

So many phrasing jokes to make, so little time!

SPOILERS: Batman Eternal #14

Jason Bard's hip new policing ways are just too much for old man Batman to handle.

SPOILERS: Detective Comics #33

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight. Rising up to the challenge of our rival!

Stack Rundown, 07/05/2014

I'll be honest with you, I'm far too hungover to think up something to write here. So, comics?

Stack Rundown, 10/12/2013

In the madness of all the random NYCC related posts I have to put up, nothing stops the Stack Rundown train! This week there were some new #1s from DC and Vertigo which I read, like Superman/Wonder Woman and Coffin Hill, as well as all the usuals from my pull.

Stack Rundown, 08/17/2013

I could sit here and give a brief rundown of what I read this week, from Trinity War to... whatever, but Saga came back this week, that that's all that really matters.

Stack Rundown, 07/13/2013

Holy crap! I got this done on Thursday afternoon. What am I going to do on Friday? I have no comics to read and nothing to write! Go outside, maybe? Ehhh...

Anyways, comics! Trinity War started this week, and I guess it's a big deal? Something like that... Yeah, spoilers on that one, just so you know.

This was basically Scott Snyder's week. Batman, American Vampire comes back, and he launches his Superman book with Jim Lee. Were there any other books this week? I'm not sure. Maybe? I wrote some stuff, so that probably means there had to have been... right?

Stack Rundown, 05/11/2013

My stack saw a fair share of sharks this week, for whatever reason, a few books come to their conclusion, and hey! I only actually paid for 12 out of these 13 books. SCORE. With all that $2.99 I saved, I'm practically rich!

SPOILERS: Suicide Squad Gets a New Consultant

Ten bucks says I pretty much just wrote DC's "THIS JUST HAPPENED" blog for the week? (I really hate that line). Anyways...

It's no secret I thought Suicide Squad was a very hot and cold book, particularly cold towards the end of Glass' run, being that it relied so heavily on the threat of Basilisk, who as I've said before, I'm pretty sure no one gives a shit about. So, I've been really looking forward to the Ales Kot & Patrick Zircher takeover of the title, which starts with today's issue #20... and quite the last page reveal, I've got to say.

After their most recent mission, Waller locks the Squad back up in Belle Reeve, and brings in a mysterious "consultant" to evaluate her squad. Why bring in this particular consultant, drenched in shadow? Well, because he has a special expertise, serial killing.

I'll give you some hints, he should be familiar to this blog, and you have to keep in mind Waller's ability to bring people back from the dead, after the Squad's encounter with Resurrection Man.

Done guessing? Well, hit the jump to see who it is.

Stack Rundown, 03/16/2013

Somewhat of a light week within my pull list, as in, not a whole lot of heavy hitters this week, but there were some gems here and there. Hit the jump for my thoughts on this week's stack.

Stack Rundown, 02/16/2013

Good morning, from the past where I'm writing this, because I'm being proactive. This week we got a couple of new Marvel #1s, and some stuff I wasn't planning on reading, but got surprised by it nonetheless (no, not Katana).  As usual, hit the jump for all my thoughts.

Stack Rundown, 01/19/2013

Another stack rundown post where I have to hold myself back from just writing "Saga" over and over again 7,328 times... I'll try. No promises though.

SPOILERS: Suicide Squad #15

So, as where we left off, Joker is choking Harley at ACE Chemicals, until the point where she passes out. Upon her coming too, she soon finds her self at the edge of another acid bath, as Joker is going to give a refreshing dip of sorts. Meanwhile, Amanda Waller and Yo-Yo are watching it all unfold through a secret lens Waller had planted on Harley's eye. Waller is showing it all to Yo-Yo to gain his trust, so he can spy on the squad, and in return, she'll teach him to gain respect.

Suicide Squad #15 Preview

Death of the Family, Death of the Family, Joker Joker Joker, what else is new. Hopefully this is more focused on the actual DotF, instead of losing focus through out the middle like the first issue.

Looking Forward: December 12th, 2012

Nothing but Death of the Family next week.
  • Batman #15: The big midpoint of the story, also featuring the actual family... who is gonna die.
  • Batgirl #15: Get prepared for the most fucked up wedding of the century!
  • Batman and Robin #15: Damian and Joker's last meeting didn't really turn out well for Damian, who wants to be it will happen again?
  • Suicide Squad #15: Mistah J </3 Harley... :(
And that's all! Panels of the Week coming up in a bit. I'll post about the last issue of Worlds' Finest I'll ever read (for now) tomorrow, and Stack Rundown, featuring MARVEL titles, will come Saturday.

SPOILERS: Suicide Squad #14

At Deadshot's funeral (he shot himself through the chest, to shoot Regulus last issue), Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, and Amanda Waller, all stand at attention, as Deadshot receives his military style service... until the rain starts... green rain, knocking out all those at the funeral, except Harley, who seems to have an immunity to it. Whatever could that mean? Oh wait, I know! Puddin' is home!

Suicide Squad #14 Preview

As I've mentioned a few time, due to obvious reasons, I'll be giving the next two issues of Suicide Squad the full treatment on the site.

Looking Forward: November 14th, 2012

It's time for "Death of the Family" to really kick it into gear!
  • Batman #14: Like I really have to give any tease for this one
  • Batgirl #14: Joker seems to have a creepy, yet fond, admiration for his former victim.
  • Batman and Robin #14: It's probably gonna be one of those "labeled a tie in... but not really" issues.
  • Suicide Squad #14: Gonna give this issue full coverage due to the Death of the Family tie in.
So, normal stuff coming up this week. I think I'm done doing write ups of Legends of the Dark Knight, just don't get a lot of feedback from those to warrant the time I put into it, but I'll keep putting panels from them in the Panels of the Week write ups as well. 

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Stack Rundown, 10/13/2012

Not a whole lot of stuff to go over this week, just DC's two new #1s, Suicide Squad, and Frankenstein. Hit the jump for my thoughts.

Greg Caupllo's Death of the Family Die-cut Covers

As previously announced, all (at least the initial) issues of the "Death of the Family" tie in issues will come with die-cut covers by Greg Capullo, that will slip over the issues. I don't know how exactly they will work, but I'm assuming the white part will be cut out? Something like that I guess, you don't see die-cut covers all that much anymore.

Anyways, CBR got all of 'em, and you can hit the jump to see the rest.

Death of the Family Checklist

So, we've known which books were going to tie into the "Death of the Family" event (as well as just finding out Detective is involved to) but there had been no word on how many issues each series would dedicate to the event... UNTIL NOW!


Yep, that emphasis was not needed. Short end of it is that like Nightwing in "Night of the Owls," a lot of these books will have more than one issue with their given characters squaring off with the Joker, which is fine by me... sucks for everyone's wallets though.

Hit the jump for the full checklist.
