Okay, I know-I know. Two fangirl updates in a row. But I’m squealing so I’m getting it down while I still got it!
And this is a Comics Special!
Thor: First Thunder
Just letting you know real quick that I finished reading the 5 Issue special. My conclusion? Hated the artwork, adored the story. Really good & I love how the Donald Blake & Thor thing came together.
And you know–Loki. Man do I love Loki.
But yeah, my only complaint was the artwork–there were frames here or there I really liked, but for the most part it was sort of…blocky? I don’t know. It’s not bad, I just didn’t like it.
And to clarify, I just mean the style–the panel layouts, the pacing and basic framing/poses are great. XD
I just want to take the entire issue and paste it here. Loved it. Loved it. Loved it. I squealed, in other words.
Non-stop battle brawl in the middle of the city. Supergirl vs. Four “World Killer” Alien Ladies.
Everything in this issue looked amazing, read well, and was Full-Stop awesome.
I’ve going to say it–I think this Reboot was one of the best things to happen to Supergirl. I love this take on her character, the costume has totally grown on me, and if she keeps rocking like she has, I can tell this is never leaving my pull list.
I really can’t wait for Supergirl to run into the other members of the Super Family. Though, I don’t’ know if I’m looking forward to the Banshee plot lines coming up or not.
Not that I’m not excited for more Supergirl/Kara, but more so that I’m not familiar with Banshee at all. XD
So we’ll see how that goes.
Now, let’s see…ah yes. My Comics fans~ The BATS!
Okay. Massive spoiler follows for the next paragraph, but I’m going to ruin it anyway:
I laughed so hard when Bruce back-handed Dick in the mouth.
I’m done. But no, the Owl’s thing is getting deeper and more involved and gosh darn it I might have to actually go pick up Nightwing again to catch up with what was going on with his end. Dumb multi-book series plot line. XD *grumbles at the owls*
But no. Good stuff.
And of course~
Red Hood and the Outlaws #7
I’m going to say it — It was good. Essence is back, Jason looks great in large glasses, Starfire is adorable when she’s sulking, Roy’s too cute, and well–It was good!
Descriptive, I know.
I am a little glad this storyline is over though. I don’t mind all the deep stuff with Jason’s past and what-not, but I was never too big on it either. I think the All-Caste thing and the ancient city and training thing was…I’m not sure. All I do know is I didn’t quite like it. Sure it explains what he was doing between being raised from the dead and coming back to Gotham as the Red Hood, but it seemed…complicated? I guess. I dunno. XD
I mostly enjoy the interactions between our main trio when it comes to this series–They work off each other so much better than they should.
Also, Roy & Kori are getting to Roy~ *hee hee*
Anyway, good stuff all around and the artwork is amazing like always~
And now for a brief tangent:
Starfire – Another look:
Let’s talk about Starfire for a moment. Mostly because a lot’s been revealed since the first issue and my earlier thoughts.
She’s awesome. That’s all there is to it. I don’t know what it is, but I love this new sulky, cranky, & often very affectionate version of her character. She’s very take-charge without ordering everyone around.
Anyway, there’s clearly more far more depth to her than the first issue revealed, and it’s a little more obvious Jason was messing with us when he talked about her memory issues (they are not nearly as bad as he made it seem, in other words).
The point is — this is the first time I’ve really liked her as a character, and I think that matters.
The original version of comic Starfire–I always thought she was, well…Boring. What little I read of her, was either falling for Dick, or just sort of hanging around being too happy? I’m not sure. I only read snips and bits and pieces, but none of them were ever enough to make me want to read more about her.
The Teen Titans cartoon version wasn’t much better, either. I didn’t hate her, or love her. She was just sort of there as far as I was concerned. Sometimes she verged on annoying, but still nothing major.
This one? Love her. I think she’s adorable, fierce, and her interactions with Roy and Jason never cease to be amusing. She’s got more chemistry with those two than I ever think she did with Dick & I’m loving it.
And that’s all for now~ :D
