My Five Member Time Masters Team

I saw a meme asking who you'd pick for a five member team. I chose the Time Masters.

World Building or Destorying?

I've been thinking of this since DC first announced the event...just what's going to happen afterwards?

Things I'm looking Foward to in 2015

Whether I know they are coming out or things I hope are coming out. Plus a few things that are worrying that are coming up.

A year of Comics I read in 2014

Same rules as before and this year I'm adding action figures to the list because I reviewed so many of them in 2014. That being the case let's get that out of the way first.

The long awaited origin of new 52 Roy Harper.

New Warriors: Work Relationship

Based on Yosts' all too brief New Warriors run although this touches a little on the other Warriors and Vance's past with other Scarlet Spiders. Mainly about the progression of Scarlet Spider and Justices' relationship since they don't start off so well.

Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #2

The Christmas issue!


Red Hood and the Outlaws #36

The holidays kept me busy and apparently I forgot to review this. I didn't forget #37 I just don't have it yet because it wasn't at my LCS.

Bruce's Arrogance?

I've heard about Batman #37 and I'm kind of surprised no one is talking about the implications.

Baby Outlaws!

Okay this is adorable, I hope the whole RHATO Annual is this great.

Batman and Robin #37 Confusion

I saw some scans and there's some things that don't make sense to me.

Scarlet Spiders #2

Part 2 of 3. Which was better than last issue...

DCs' Many Cancelled Titles

Some are to be expected while others are a shock. But this many series at once are ending? Something is up.

Infinity Man and the Forever People #9
Aquaman And The Others #11
Klarion #6
Secret Origins #11
Star-Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie #8
Trinity of Sin #6
Worlds' Finest #32
Arkham Manor #6
Batwoman #40
 Green Lantern Corps #40
 Green Lantern: New Guardians #40
Red Lanterns #40
Swamp Thing #40

The GL books and Batwoman definitely raise an eyebrow. Maybe their getting new takes after the big event that will reboot certain titles?

New Solicits

Last Month I had nothing to talk about, this month gives me a few topics.

Well tell him that you care

While I appreciate the context of the panels above it does tick me off that Bruce just suppresses how he feels after Jason comes back. Like he doesn't know how to react. At first it's denial because much like his parents he's accepted Jason died. Then after UTH happens he makes a nasty comment although Ollie knows he doesn't mean it. When someone else makes a jab--again Ollie--he gets defensive and points out the other mans' shortcomings with Roy. Then in Batwoman he's back at making hurtful comments about Jason, which is either before or after he gets Jason to join Batman INC. All these emotions he has to deal with and I keep thinking this is why I struggle with the idea of Bruce mourning Damian. Writing-wise it just seems like an attempt to try the same thing again and it can't match up. Not 20 years worth of stories which make this something that stood out. They should have just kept Damian alive in the first place.

The Ongoing canon battle in Star Wars

I don't think I have mentioned my love of Star Wars much on this site. I mostly stick to comics rather than talk about movies and tv shows. I felt the need to go over my feelings on the criticism some fans have due to the apparent ending the Expanded Universes' canon status. (Sound familiar ?)

New Warriors VOL. 2

Let's see how the second volume of the classic New Warriors fares.

Free Digital Comics

Comixology is doing a 12 Days of Free Comics event. Captain Marvel #1 is today's comic.

Digital Booster Gold Sale?

I've been meaning to get some digital trades. Not everything was collected like the Flashpoint issues (except when it was combined with the Superman mini) and that's when I noticed it. All single Booster Gold issues are .99 cents except the Futures End one shot. This is under the Futures End sale.

Short Review: Storm #1

I got this free during an online promotion for the series and decided to check it out.

The New Scarlet Witch Retcon

I saw it today and wow...that's just shocking.

Scarlet Spiders #1

As I've said elsewhere recently I have a fondness for the Clone Saga. I bought this for Ben Reilly and Kaine. Ultimate Jessica Drew isn't a character I read prior to this so while it's nice to see her I'm invested in the guys because they actually feel connected to each other despite things I'll explain shortly. This is the only thing tied to Spiderverse I'm getting.

Short Review: Gotham Academy #2 and #3

Holiday stuff has kept me busy which means my reviews are later than normal. That said this will be brief as I find I don't have much to say at this point. The series is still forming it's cast and plot lines.

I love the sense of history this book has. Not only are the teachers characters from Batman mythos (Aunt Harriet and Bookworm) the in universe story of the Cobblepot girl is fascinating. I want to know this schools' history as well as the characters. I have no complaints although I do worry Batgirl will show up since my opinion of her hasn't changed. This series may have the setting of Gotham but it also has more freedom than other bat books because these are (mostly) new characters. I don't know if I'll review this book in the future since at present I have little to add besides enjoying it.

Send in the Clones

Some clones from Marvel that I have a soft spot for.

Why I love Rip Hunter

I remember when Rip was in Booster Golds' second series and the negative comments I read about him. How he was such a downer, cruel for his actions in the Killing Joke issue and how could such a killjoy be related to Booster. I don't agree with any of that.

DC April Solicits

At first I thought I would be skipping DC for a couple months. Then came Batgirl starring Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain. Now we have this. Blue Beetle/Ted Kord? Nice. JLI? Awesome. Booster Gold with RIP HUNTER in his TMVP uniform? Thank you DC, I have waited so long for this moment! Rip! I've missed you!

Favorite Female Character Day

Honestly it's hard to chose, like my favorite male character this is ever changing. I have favorites though and here are a few in no particular order:

  • Princess Leia
  • Starfire
  • Spider-Girl/May "Mayday" Parker
  • Storm
  • Mary Jane Watson Parker
  • Cassandra Cain
  • Ice
  • Stephanie Brown
  • Cordelia Chase (Angel)
  • Oracle/Barbara Gordon (Not the new 52 Batgirl)

Honorable mentions to Catwoman, Batwoman Kate Kane, the other BOP, the X-Women, Invisible Woman, and too many to mention. Leia was the first strong female character I ever saw and made a huge impact. All of these choices had some affect on me and I adore them all.
