The richest duck in Duckburg is back. To celebrate, those nasty Beagle Boys have raised the stakes in trying to rob Scrooge McDuck.
It's a new arc but the there's still plenty of danger for Marcus and friends. Things get pretty crazy, as you would expect.
Doc Green and Red Hulk smash EVERYTHING.
Great list so far, man. Glad to see I'm not the only person who liked John Carter :D
Alongside John Stewart this has got to be the best skin they've released yet.
Great review, as always. I would've been worried if this hadn't been a 5/5 :P
@johnkmccubbin91: I generally wouldn't mind the Donner stuff as I really love those films but the rest of Johns' run had its fair share of homages already so I felt this was pushing it.
Didn't have that much of a problem with the fighting, it's just that Superman was in a pretty messy situation and everything gets conveniently fixed at the end.
True, but Metallo doesn't have a red cape :P
@johnkmccubbin91: There were a few cool moments here and there, mostly the stuff before he goes to Metropolis, but then I thought all the Donner homages were way too much. Plus, I felt the ending was a bit too rushed (and did you know that originally Bizarro was supposed to appear in issue 6?).
Great review, man. Glad to see that you liked it because it was unbearably boring for me :P
Probably the only work in John's Superman run that I didn't really like.
@veshark: Well, I'll still be looking forward to seeing your finished list.
Wow, this is really good. I love the reasons you gave as to why you like these characters, I'll probably never put this much effort into one of my own lists :P
I'm looking forward to your Iron Man entry, since he's the only character in your list I dislike.
@akbogert: Heh, no problem. It's easy to overlook some stuff in the inbox, has happened to me.
Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow is a classic story but it suffers the same problems All-Star does: it's a celebration to Superman's history (or in this case, a last goodbye). There's a lot of Silver Age references and since the Silver Age was very silly those references may affect the way a new reader sees the actual story. If I had to make a good recommendation for new readers it would be either Last Son (Superman Returns done right) or the Earth One novels (which always struck me as very friendly for modern readers).
I never bought the Teen Titans Omnibus but I'm guessing those events are Identity Crisis and Infinite Crisis. Without reading those events things may be somewhat confusing, yeah.
I'm not sure how I bumped into this list but since I've seen where some of these suggestions come from I guess I'll comment on some of them:
And about Deadpool, have you read Joe Kelly's run? In my opinion, that's the best Deadpool run yet, although Simone's short stint is solid as well.
