Meh 0

Ok, this one, I didn't care about. I really can't say what on Earth this episode was even about. Something about the future Supermen traveling in time back to Smallville to take down a "chronovore" (I think there's a Magic card of something like that), and at the same time Clark's father suffers a fatal heart attack.  Of course we get the expected funeral speech and such, but I honestly don't like this one.  But hey! Next up we got Bizarro! YEAH! I gotta hurry up and buy the second paperback!...

This issue is a little different. Instead of being a Silver Age type story, instead it's just an addition to the main plot.  Clark's interview with Lex that we were told about earlier finally goes underway. We get see alot of how Luthor's mind works and how he treats his death sentence for multiple crimes agains humanity. It really shows off Luthor's personality. And shows his reasoning for hating Superman so much. Not everything's quiet and easy, though. The Parasite breaks from his binds and i...

"Hurr. Cool." 0

Seriously, I'm doing nothing but repeat myself over and over. This series has an awesome premise and it knows what it's doing.  One thing that amazes me is how this story was a one issue story that was still entertaining. I usually hate single issue stories. But really, to keep up with the whole Silver Age vibe, they're necessary. And they work perfectly.  To pay homage to the millions of stories where something ridiculous happens to Jimmy. In this case he takes over Dr. Spectrum's laboratory fo...

"Mine's bigger." 0

Wow, was this issue great, or what?  While letting Lois temporarily have Kryptonian powers for a day,  they run into obvious Silver Age characters Atlas and Samson, who try hitting on Lois. Ol' Supes doesn't like that one bit. Lois gets a kick out of it and lets them go through a "super contest" to see who gets her. There's a few turns when the time traveling Samson reveals that he knows that Superman will eventually die, as well as steals jewelry from an ancient mythological creature.This is aw...

The Supercave 0

Wait, I thought the Fortress of Solitude was made of giant crystals and stuff? In this it's basically the Batcave. Ah, whatever.  After finally revealing his secret identity to Lois, ol Supes shows her the Supercave (c'mon, that's what it is, basically. It even has a giant penny with the Joker on it. Sure, Batman's giant penny just has Lincoln on it, but really, why does Superman have one? And with the Joker on it of all people?) Anyway, Superman shows off his robot butlers, his laboratory, his ...

Hold the presses! 0

Wow, they aren't kidding when they say Grant Morrison loves to keep the silliness of the old days of superhero comics still intact, and how he loves paying homage to the past. I greatly respect him for working in such a way. That's why I decided to give this a read. I've heard alot of good about this series, and even though I didn't really like Batman RIP, I did like what I read of the sequel Batman and Robin (honestly, only the first issue. I'm waiting for the paperback to continue reading i...

Mree-hee-hee-hee! 0

Sonic fights the Iron Legion while Tails takes the unconscious Robotnik to safety. However, the seemingly invulnerable Iron King is a heavy speed bump. Thankfully Sally and crew give their aid. But even then, they're numbers are too many, and they have to return to New Mobotropolis and set on the force field to keep them out.  Afterward, Robotnik is left in protective custody (sorry, no AoStH quotes this time around), and Sonic is questioned by Monkey Kahn on why he shows mercy to his once enemy...

Breakin' Some Eggs 0

 I remember glancing at this back when it came out. Managed to pick me slightly up to speed with what's going on in the comic, as I stopped reading it 100 issues ago. Even worse, I finally learned that the comic even existed back around 90.  So...yeah.  Anyway, as one should expect, it's an action packed one-on-one showdown between or favorite mad scientist and blue rodent. Each taunting each other with they're previous victories, but Sonic, the smart-alec he is, has so much more to gloat about ...

"Don't push it, kid." 0

Wow, you know one thing I REALLY don't like about mainstream comics? The fact that most of the time, you need to have kept up with everything that's happened in continuity in order to have a clue what's going on, now. How do you expect to draw in new readers when they have to scour comic shops for back issues to be up to speed on a comic they just picked up?  Technically, this isn't a mainstream comic, but that's the problem here. This problem didn't occur in the main comic's new arc, so I didn'...

Eggman's Still Missing His Pingas 0

If you check out my account on Comic Vine's sibling site Giant Bomb, you'll learn something about me: Sonic is one of the biggest influences in my life. His games may be a joke now, but in the 90's he was no laughing matter. Many people fondly remember the SatAM tv show (which I honestly don't like too much compared to AoSth), well, this comic began as a continuation of that show. They've added tons of their own characters as well as integrated the newer ones from the games (heck, they actually ...

Everything Gets Answered 0

Finally, everything gets answered. Spawn's job is to get more recruits for Malbolgia by using his powers to kill criminals. Violator gets demoted for all the crap he did earlier (anyone else think he sounds like Gilbert Gottfried?), and now Spawn has absolutely nothing to do and just wanders the streets. That's a real problem: Spawn can't use his powers, because it'll bring him closer to losing his soul, as well as adding evil people to Hell's army. But wait...can't he just be a NORMAL vigilante...

"NO!" 0

This one is a definite improvement, but there are still some hiccups. Spawn goes to the CIA office in New York to find out what happened to his wife. After getting the information, he threatens some higher up named Billy Miller to do the right thing and start paying alimony and child support to his ex-wife and child, as well as stop harassing his secretary. But this scene gets ruined when Malbolgia  starts laughing in triumph, telling Spawn to become evil and viscous. Um, WHAT? How does that mak...

Sick Joke 0

We find out who's killing the crime lords, some gross demon that's going around yanking out their water balloon shaped hearts. He does this to alot of people over the issue. Elsewhere, Spawn is trying to see if he has a power to shapeshift, so he tries, and ends up turning into a white guy. It's hilarious. He tries again and again, but it's always the same result. After burning off a good chunk of his power gauge (That has to be what that is. And I must admit, it's a cool idea.), he passes out. ...

It Begins 0

My current roommate is a fan, so I decided to look at one of the many books he has.  I find it ironic how people call so much crap on Leifield for what he did in the 90's, but I don't hear much on McFarlane, despite clearly sharing elements (Look at the Simmon's military flashback, and tell me that gun and armor don't look like Leifield creations). Heck, everyone in the book keeps on referring to the horrid Youngblood. A semi-amnesiac  Spawn is wandering the streets after he died 5 years ago. Hi...

Rhino Gets Smarter! 0

  I didn't care about this one. It started off great, but it just bogs down after that and falls apart with a pretty lame conclusion I was must have been too naive to see coming.   Rhino's operation is a success! He's gotten smarter! He gets the girl! He's able to outsmart Spidey! And to make it even better, his intellect will only go up! Life is good! But as time progresses, he starts to lose sight of everything. He forgets why he ever fell for Stella now that he's light years more intelligen...

Rhino's Smart Enough to Know He's Dumb 0

 I haven't heard much about this comic, but it sounds like a great idea: Spiderman stories from the viewpoints of other characters. I've heard of other comics doing something similar. With such a good idea, the more, the merrier!  I noticed this story inside a paperback (that unfortunately had that abominable 9-11 issue in it, they may have had good intentions and a great message, but I see it as a horrible idea to bring a real life terrorist attack into a universe where thousands of superheroes...

Nice Going, Iceman! 0

I really had fun with this. I really doubt most comic readers would ever give this a chance, but Mini Marvels is great.It's a bunch of humorous stories centering around the Marvel universe, except the heroes are basically kids. The stories are nice and funny, and it sprinkles references to the mainstream Marvel Universe everywhere (like Sentry's bad luck). Everyone can make some comparison with Tiny Titans, which I also want to read, but I don't mind seeing something like this for both companies...

Finally! I review a monthly comic before it becomes a paperback!So the new Dynamic Duo has appeared after the months passed after Bruce Wayne's fake death. Plus, they got a flying Batmobile! Who needs a Batplane when you got that?Anyway, I was interested in reading this because of the premise, and I'm neutral with Morrison. The last thing I read by him was Batman R.I.P, and while I didn't hate it, I didn't like all of it enough to prevent me from getting my money back. (Some parts in the middle ...

Acromegliacs! 0

This issue had something to laugh at on nearly every page. From seeing Mark Hammil as an actor playing the Joker, to seeing Dini and Timm themselves as depressed writers forced to sell crappy toys. Even an Animaniacs parody! This is why I love the work of these two.While trying to make money to return to Gotham and finish the plan, things change when the duo hear news of a movie about them and the actresses portraying them. They go to Hollywood to sabatoge the project and steal the multi-million...

Wow, the two actually accomplished a GOOD thing (well, Ivy IS about the environment).Immediately once they reach Costa Verde, they captured by the local government and imprisoned. After some great fight scenes leading to them escaping (involving a plunger), Ivy admits to Harely "You're not half the imbecile you seem to be." They continue their search for the plant as a team again, but run into some mercinaries hired by to slash and burn the forests down. Knowing Ivy, she's not at all happy about...

Ok, NOW we got something good! Timm and Dini are back!It starts off with the duo stealing a rare plant to synthesize a mind control agent that will affect everyone in Gotham, as Ivy's powers only works on men. When they try to escape, Batman shows up to stop them. Out of desperation, Harley hits Batman with the plant and destroys it by doing so.Back at Arkham, Ivy can't think of anything but killing her ex-best friend for ruining the plan. Quin is completely oblivious to it, leading to Ivy snapp...

Blech 0

Yeah, this wasn't good. This one was by Judd Winick and Joe Chiodo.The first problem this has is it's artwork. It's a painterly style, which is fine, but the poses are stiff, the bodies are sometimes squished or stretched to fit into the panels, and most faces are either jumbled or just plain ugly (while every once in a while there's a decent face). I couldn't even recognize Tim Drake and mistook him as Dick Grayson. Alot of it is terrible. I looked up Joe Chiodo's website, and thankfully he use...

Another story from the team. There were a few artists who did some small parts, though. I hate the art for the Scarface and Scarecrow stories (even though the stories are good). Thankfully, the segments are short and we go to Timm's artwork.This was full of short stories, which I guess is what Annuals are all about. My favorite one is Laughter After Midnight, where the Joker is walking home after being beaten by Batman. It's drawn by John Byrne. I must say, this guy knows how do draw cartoons. H...

On the 20th of May, DC finally reprinted this awesome story by the awesome team of Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, who I have to thank for everything they've done relating to Batman. Did I mention that the books in HARDCOVER! And with some of their other stories included! Life is good!This story gives Harley Quinn her origin, as well as shows her obsession with the psychopathic Joker. Even though she's constantly abused by her "puddin'" she can't stop loving him. To prove how much she love him, she se...

I'm sorry, this issue redeemed nothing. It didn't make me mad like the earlier one did, but it's nothing special.It continues much later. The Long Halloween has passed now. No idea what Harvey's been up to with the whole time, but it's no longer important. Right now, Harvey's doing a mock election using his buddies at Arkham to help him out. It's a creative plan, sure, but maybe a little silly for Two-Face. On top of that, he's a murderous vigilante, taking out anyone he sees as a criminal  with...

How'd this happen? 0

That's a shame. It really is. This issue started great. And I mean GREAT. It dealt with the Long Halloween (which I hated.)Harvey and Gordon are assembling a team of honorable cops (including Bullock, who's always awesome) to take down Maroni. However, things go south when Maroni's attorney (who has a history with Den) manages to get the charges dropped by bringing up that the evidence was found outside the law. The good guys at GCPD have to try again. This time without Batman's help.Things get ...

"Little Pinch" 0

It's done! Crane of course, gets a taste of his own medicine, and the Dynamic Duo stop his murder spree.The only problem I have is this, Bats and Robin seem to have very unorthodox reactions to the fear gas. Everyone else had normal fears, but apparently Robin's fear is seeing Batman fight a double of himself. Ok...Batman's fear may make some sense, as it's sorta vague. All we do know that it of course involves his parents, so I guess it passes. Robin's is still weird, though.This was a nice sto...

There's a serial killer running lose in Gotham! And he wears a Scarecrow costume!This issue constantly flashes backward and forward. We're seeing Cran get his revenge on his mentor, while we continually flash back to Batman and Robin as they try to solve the case, as well as Crane's childhood.Looks like Crane grew up in the Oven. I wonder what state Gotham's in. Wherever it is, Bats had to take a jet to get there. (Not a Batplane, this is really a Batjet.) During the investigation, we learn much...

Nah, I'm kidding. It looks ridiculous.Anyway, this is the last story in the paperback, and it's early Modern Age before the Dark Age! It sure looks like it!Luthor aside, this is an okay story. This is the first Modern Age appearance of Bizarro, since they removed him in the first Crisis. No speaking here, and no Bizarro World, either. He's an imperfect clone by Luthor (like in the DCAU). He the result because the machine that made him was programed to recreate human DNA, causing Luthor to learn ...

Bronze Age Bizarro-ness! 0

Yeah, the paperback has a Bronze Age story in it, too. I can't rate the Silver Age one (Superman #140) simply because it's a Silver Age story from DC, so in other words, it's ridiculous by default. It's not the worst thing I've ever read, but there are so many things wrong with it from my modern viewpoint. My parents had to read some weird comics, I tell ya.On subject, this story is still on the silly side, but I guess that was the intent, considering it's a Bizarro story. This clearly isn't the...

Well the blue sun the new planet orbits had given the duplicate new powers, allowing him to create Bizarro versions of the people of Metropolis.However, Bizarro now regrets creating the world, and seeks his "father's" guidance on how to undo it. Problem is, his backward...

I get it now, the point of this story is nostalgia. I can dig that, I love nostalgia. Problem is, it isn't aimed for me. It's for everyone who kept up with Bat's 70 year history.
