Liliy is a Fangirl #10

Hey! Mostly Comics today. XD In fact. All Comics today.

Spoilers~ ohhh~


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.

I have no idea what's going on with her or her 'clone' but I felt for her during this scene. That's what's important. *sage nod*

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

Though this was in the issue, so that makes it worth it. XD

Moving on.

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


This is the sole reason I picked up Justice League Dark

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*

Liliy is a Fangirl #7

…I’m not very good at keeping a schedule, am I?

Uh, short one this week. XD


Read Planet of the Apes (GoodReads review here!) by Pierre Boulle~ Good stuff, actually. One of these days I’ll actually watch the Heston Version of the films considering I’ve only seen the Tim Burton reboot. (Which I liked.) Considering I quite normally despise Chimpanzees, Gorillas and Orangutans, it’s an oddity that I seem to like this series so much. Go figure.

And I ship Ulysses x Zira. Like no tomorrow. Nova and Cornelius can hook up on their own.

Probably something along the lines of how I can adore Finding Nemo, but am seriously freaked out by normal fish eyes.


Deathstroke #2: …not much happened. It was basically Slade beating things up for twenty pages. Don’t get me wrong, Slade being bad ass is awesome, but it gets a little tedious when that’s all he does for the entire issue. Things that will keep me reading the series regardless of this issue being kinda boring:

  1. Cristoph <– Love him. Seriously. Slade’s manager-dude wins.
  2. Hopes that he’ll run into Nightwing – it’s Slade. He’s got to go hunt down Dick Grayson and tease him/make him miserable at some point. Even the advert for other comics in the digital version was ‘Nightwing’ XD
  3. It’s Slade. And he’s making puns. Saving grace of the issue, no question:
Slade Makes a Pun - "You Catch a Flat?"

Oh, Deathstroke, you.

Swamp Thing #1 & #2: Random comic purchase of the evening. It was good, but I’m really confused. I feel like there’s a ton of back-story I should have gotten. XD It’s probably not a good sign when the issue starts with “A lot of stuff happened that I’ve put behind me” and not knowing that that stuff was…oh well. The art is pretty…? We’ll see how far I get with this one. XD


A little taste of the old stuff.

Superboy #2: We got a taste of sarcastic, 90’s Superboy in this one with his teasing of Rose. Not as much as I’d like (I’d take 90’s wanna-be playboy, Lex Luthor!Jerk, Superboy over the new angsty one in the Young Justice cartoon any day), but I can see they’re trying to work his old behavior in with the more mature/calm one from his later Teen Titan days. It works out better than the all serious all the time version on the YJ Cartoon by far. Still a good issue all around and I’m excited for when he meets Tim again with Teen Titans.

Because if Tim Drake and Superboy aren’t best friends, closer than Superman & Batman, making them one of the classic World’s Finest Team-ups,  eventually (I shall allow the build-up character development to occur as it did originally – they didn’t just meet and be bosom buddies, after all): I will not be happy. The fans raging over Starfire will be nothing compared with my fan!rage fury.
Tim and Kon-El. <3
