      There, but it's basically short word spell casting. Like, when he teleports, it says "Elsewhere!"

      It has interesting concepts, but it's very much YA novel tier

      While a very important loki read canon wise, I thought it was much too compressed, and that McKelvie has no business in comics other than fashion designs, and panel/ detail tricks

      as for Inhumans, well the current book by Soule is alright. Not amazing, but I enjoy it.

      There's the Jenkins/Lee mini series, which I'm not sure you'd enjoy but it's definitely the #1 book everyone turns to when Inhumans are mentioned. Also Silent War which had amazing art.

      oh and Morrison did a Fantastic Four mini if yoi ever want to check that out too

      Eternal is a good read, not like the other DC weeklies, it's basically a monthly book that comes out weekly. One long story with lots of twists and turns. There are 9 issues left if you want to wait and give it all a shot.

      Loads of good artists too, the newest issue has David LaFuente (artist for USM after Immonen) making his DC debut
    13. Castiel

      Kind of. In general it's a good book though, Tomasi doesn't ignore the Inc special where Morrison has Bruce go 'yeah us working together won't work' and explores how they'd work together regardless. Really explores Bruce and Damian's relationship more than any of the other books. and when Damian dies it goes into an interesting direction as it has Bruce dealing with it and then finally get him back.

      basically

      also if you're curious, when you get to it Batman #28 is basically Batman Eternal #42.5
    15. Castiel

      Also catch up with Batman and Batman & Robin

      Like Kirby/Lee FF *IS* what made Marvel. So much innovative stuff was going down during those 100 issues. In hindsight it's corny and ahit, but it more than anything else are stuff I give passes on due to historical significance. Also if you're in a good mood and manage to get in the zone while reading it, then it's a wild ride
    18. Castiel

      Lee's writing. Also yeah, he's like that. He basically played hype man as kirby drew weirder and weirder creative shit
    19. Castiel
      Castiel
      The original Kirby/Lee stuff is really creative. Also mark Waid's run.

      How far did the omnibus go? Did it have his Future Foundation run too?

      here's an issue I'd be very interested in hearing your frank feelings on if you ever get a chance to read it. It shows the story of what immediately led to John leaving the Marines in the new 52 universe

      Basically as part of Snyder's year long epic a bunch of comics did a tie in issue about what those heroes were doing in Gotham as everything went to hell because of the Riddler's terrorist actions during a hurricane.

      GLC did one about Sgt. John Stewart being sent in with the marines to help evacuate people seeking shelter in a stadium (is that something marines do? I thought that was the national guard, but john goes 'we took the oath for corps and country, and these people are our country, boys")

      Then they get caught up in a new supervillain plot to turn the people against the marines and John has to try to diffuse the situation before his CO loses his patience and uses lethal force in what could spiral into a bloodbath and stop Anarky.

      oh it seems like the Zod stuff idnt being done by Pak it's being done by Charles Soule (a writer who came out of fucking nowhere two years ago and is probably one of the best new writers of the past 5 years, I love his other stuff) in the series Superman/Wonder Woman (they're dating now). Seems the first arc of that series is Supes/WW vs Zod and Faora :LOS

      reminds me, I need to eventually read Azzarello's WW. The IDEA of Azzarello writing Wonder Woman is so... odd to me, but I hear good things

      Tony Daniels made face off Joker for Detective Comics, and Snyder decided to use it since it was barely a year since it was introduced.

      the arc that really has me hyped though is Zero Year, this big 12 part story currently going on that tells Batman's new 52 origin, its really interesting to me so far.


      also yeah that's basically my stance on it, though everything rebooting gave me a convenient jumping off point while I took a long break from comics.

      Im actually finishing Incorporated now, I do like how after the new 52 kinda just fucked over Morrison's whole 'everything ever is canon' idea, he just goes 'fuck it' and decides to tell one long fast paced epic batman vs leviathan story to end it all with a no bullshit, action packed, memorable bang.

      I hadn't read much DC since Johns wrapped up his GL story, I still ned to finish Batman Inc. Are Snyder/Capullo the ones responsible for "face off" Joker. If so, I refused to read that because it's not muh Joker. :hmpf
    28. Castiel
      Castiel
      so im continuing on my catch up of shit I missed and ive caught up with Scott Snyder/Greg Capullo Batman

      holy shit is the zero year arc probably one of the best things ive read in a while
    29. Castiel
      Castiel
      man I'm even more behind than you on Ultimate :lmao

      Castiel
      ah

      well
      /checks vertigo's site
      the trade goes on sale.... on my birthday (april 9)? :wha



      also guess then my little present will do you no good then? well just know that if Pak's writing him, Zod will be one of the things that wont suck in the new 52 :LOS
