Hey! Mostly Comics today. XD In fact. All Comics today.
Action Comics #3: It’s funny, just as Superman starts to grab me, Action Comics starts to lose me. I’m not sure if it’s because Jimmy’s new character design is driving me crazy (I’m not sure what it is–but I can’t stand it) or because it seems kinda boring. I don’t know. Can’t quite put my finger on it.
Static Shock #3: Definitely easier to understand than the last issue – and we’re back to some fun Static action with Virgil working both the school and the local gang trying to kill him. Plus, we’re getting more info on his sister and her ‘clone’ and that side story. Pretty good issue~
Hawk & Dove #3: I want four. Now. *noms Hawk & Dove* I love them. LOVE THEM.
We’re going to get to Swamp Thing –
fair warning, this might be a long one [It turned out normal length to avoid grossing people out with details]. And we’ll have a better opinion on Justice League Dark after. XD
Swamp Think #3: I…just don’t know what to do with this one. I literally freaked out reading this comic. There’s this big thing that happens and everything goes to heck and back and for goodness sake they [this would be the spoiler] show the brutal mutilation of three sick kids and a man’s lung pulled out of his chest and hanging out of his mouth. This stuff looked like it belong in a Left 4 Dead game. o_O But it caught me totally off guard and just. Wow. Man. XD
In my sudden urge to own all things Hawk & Dove – I found out that Dove is in Justice League Dark. So guess what I splurged on!? :D
Justice League Dark #1 & #2: I bought this solely for Dove, but it turns out it was actually really, really good. The book-end narrative (“I looked into the future.”) with Xanadu was really well put together and the first issue was gorgeous. It’s a dark, serious, magic piece and it works really well. The second issue was quite good as well and had a nice focus on the relationship between Dove and Deadman which helps fill in some of the troubles they’re experiencing over in Hawk & Dove (and was also hilarious – oh Deadman, you just don’t understand women, do you? Try possessing Hank and see what that does. XD).
I’ll probably be picking up the Birds of Prey Series that had Hawk and Dove because I’m a tad obsessed. *cough*
