Despite a small stack for me last week, I can always depend on Jeff Lemire to keep bringing the goods with more misadventures of Buddy Baker and family. Animal Man #11 wraps up Buddy Baker’s ascension into the role of protector of the Red’s avatar, as he comes blazing with bigger powers and a cool fight with his former husk. Pure fun and Alberto Ponticelli’s art compliments the past work of Travel Foreman, but also stands out with some dynamic figures. Great stuff as we inch closer to the epic crossover with Swamp Thing.
If you need to catch up, DC released the first trade a couple of months ago. Buy it before the Rot gets you…
I never grew up a JSA fan and yet James Robinson and Nicola Scott are making me a fan with their latest issue of Earth 2. Great art and great introductions to new characters. One would think you couldn’t do a book in a world without the big three and yet this creative team is proving that theory all wrong.
Then we delve into the world of Watchmen with Darwyn Cooke’s take on Minutemen. It’s what you expect an introductory book to be as we re-explore a team that didn’t have much of a spotlight in the much-acclaimed Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons book. That being said, if you want Cooke art, you get it in spades.
Don’t get sold out! Buy advance tickets to The Dark Knight Rises.
Tim and I are back from technical difficulties that plagued us the previous two weeks, and we are all about Blackest Night this podcast. There are spoilers everywhere so you are warned.
We review Blackest Night 2, Green Lantern 44, Blackest Night Superman 1, Blackest Night Batman 1, and a little Tales of the Corps 1.
Zombie Sharks, true believers. Zombie Sharks.
What’s your take on Blackest night so far? Where do you think it’s going?
How sweet is this cover?
Feast your eyes on Black Lantern Earth-2 Superman. Looks like he’s resurrecting Earth-1′s pa. One can only wonder what character might object to this. Elongated Man, perhaps?
Thanks to IGN for the scoop.
