Hey folks. Not blogged in a while. How've you all been? You're lookin' well. Happy St Pat's. Anyway, enough small talk. Got a friend who needs a little help with a university assignment and we're just the crowd to help her. Sara, is doin' a "close reading" on Watchmen and is havin' some trouble with it. I'm gonna help however I can but any suggestions you can offer would be great. For instance I can't remember all the Charlton characters the Watchmen were based on. Any cultural impact and suggest would would be great too.
P.S Seems Sara's lookin' to be pointed towards some serious critique to read over so if anyone know where to look that'd be a huge help. Thanks
Am I the only one who's finds the identity of the new Hobgoblin a little hard to swallow? Phil Urich was the good Green Goblin. He acted like a hero and didn't display any characteristics that would suggest he was emotionally unstable in anyway. Now suddenly he's killing, stealling, fighting Spidey and joining up with the Kingpin to impress a girl?!? I've not seen him around much lately but what happened since last time I read a comic with him in to change his personallity so drasticly?
Have I missed something or is this just an odd choice on the writers part?
I'm curious how Bruce Wayne intends to bull this off. I always liked Batman as a sort of urban myth that criminals were scared of. Now Bruce has basicly told the world "Batman's real and I sign his cheques". How're international governments and law inforcement gonna look at it? It's one thing to operate in the shadows and a whole different thing to come out and tell everyone you're there. Wont Batman Inc take a heck of a lot of Wayne Industries funding and not bring much revenue back for the business? How are stock holders gonna feel about that? I don't know about the US but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't go down well here un the UK if a CEO or whatever it is Bruce actually does stepped out and told the financial world he'd been spending company money on a secret project.
I gotta admit I lost interest in the Batbooks around the time of RIP and having Bruce doin' his best Sam Becket impression gettin' lost in time didn't do much to get me back. Batman inc and Finches new series aren't helping.
Years of loyal custom and still I've not spotted my handsome mug on the "I am an Avenger" pages of the Avengers books. Can you viners keep an eye out and if you see me gimme a heads up? I'd sure appreciate it.
I just sgned in this minute and had a quest update sayin' Big Brother had finally completed. Took it's time since I'm pretty sure it should've been completed a long time ago. No if only Friend of the State would complete too......
