Yep, overall it was pretty good. I still find Snyder's need to have a secret history in every story he tells to be annoying but Capullo's art helped even that out.

The cliffhanger also didn't do much for me and I like Gaiman.

Yea, the fact that the map from Multiversity made an in story appearance was pretty funny.

In other news Jim Lee seems to be teasing something involving Jonathan Hickman.

Of the last several comic appearances of Black Lightning.... that has to be the worst. Suit is based on his new CW look too. This will ALWAYS be *my* Black Lightning...



Isabella wrote that one too!

Far from the worst, I hated the one you posted but the Brett Booth New 52 redesign would like a word with you

I would've liked Booth's redesign if it wasn't so damn busy. I mainly liked the one I posted the cover to above because the whole tone of the series felt like Frank Miller's Sin City in the DCU. The suit looked a little better when it was recolored light blue instead of red, but I think that was done mostly in background appearances.

I liked the one above so much I even got the Total Justice figure when it came out [same as the first Kyle Rayner action figure made during that line].



I just had high hopes for BL in the DCU again. This is taking that horrible look from the new show, making him younger, no kids, etc... there's just barely anything resembling 'Lightning for me at this point.

Bob Schreck got the cover credits wrong three months in a row, and then all of a sudden he was no longer the editor of Green Lantern. I don't know whether that had anything to do with his departure, but if not then the timing of it was certainly a coincidence.

Maybe those goofs were signs of bigger problems behind the scenes. DC probably cut him loose for a number of things, and fans only see the product itself.

LCS got in extra copies of Metal. I flipped through it, and found awkwardness in abundance.

Mongol has never, ever interested me, and the whole "Let's become Voltron!" moment was just bizarre. From there, it got either run-of-the-mill or weird, but I think Superman summed it up well when he commented how a being older than the universe has been conspiring against Batman/the Wayne bloodline for (tens of) thousands of years.

I did enjoy seeing Kendra Saunders again. If the issues are still there when I go back next week, I might grab it just for her, but unless these "Dark JLA" parodies are pretty interesting, then this is flip-through-only material.

Read (flipped through) Metal #2.

Liked some of the Metal Villains designs, but some (Metal Doomsday/Joker) were weak. The story is still absurdly convoluted and I won't be able to comprehend much of it (if any of it) until I can actually get a personal copy and digest it steadily. As it looks, I doubt I'll get the trade, because the whole thing is just a silly attempt at being ultra hardcore the more I look at it.

SPOILERS

It's confusing (over complicated), but apparently the source of the problem was Bats' time hopping post Final Crisis.

For me, the cover price was almost worth it for Baby Darkseid alone.

Yeah, the baby made me raise my eyebrow, but I'm not reading anything Superman-related (might flip through a forthcoming issue of "Imperious Lex" to see him claim the throne of Apokolips, just for laughs) so I didn't see it coming.

Speaking of Superman:

Fox News host has meltdown over Superman protecting immigrants from being massacred

Apparently being a hero means letting people get murdered, some idiot thinks.

I'm not even going to bother reading it because I know Fox will have overreacted and the wrong way, but that moment in the comic felt really obvious in a political sense. Superman had to do what he did, but the set-up was a bit heavy handed. On the other hand, he also stopped a 99 percenter from killing some rich dude or something.

Color commentary only, sadly.
