Up so early on a Sunday morning, why why why.
+DCnU Week 2:Superboy #1
: A. The first surprise of the week. I picked it up with zero expectation, and was very, very surprised. ( spoilers )Demon Knights #1
: A. The second surprise of the week. This was so much fun
. Could YOU say no to a title with SWORDS, SORCERY and
DRAGONS? In love with all the characters (the Shining Knight, OMG), looking forward to more. ♥Batwoman #1
: A-. No, let me explain: the only reason it gets an A- is because like Batgirl
, the issue felt like a set-up issue more than anything else. While it gets A+++ on art alone, the lack of Rucka shows in the writing, at least in this issue. I did however LOVE ( spoilers )
I considered reading Batman and Robin
, but you know what, I'm not sure I care that much about Bruce and Damian's relationship. Damian is a character who's at his best when he's not
being taken too seriously, and contrasted with someone like Dick or Steph. With Bruce and Damian, you have grimdark Batman and grimdark Robin, and... I don't care. Right now.
Next week: Wonder Woman! Blue Beetle! Birds of Prey is also out next week, and I'm a little confused: so the Batverse isn't rebooted, but Birds of Prey is? With a new origin? None of it makes sense!
There was this adorable post in scans_daily
that made me go awww: Huntress: Protector of Babies
. Because yes, she is. She is fierce and scary and a ~loner, and also the protector of babies and children everywhere. If you threaten her kids she will END you.
Meanwhile, I continue to enjoy Basara
(up to chapter 45 now): it's quite surprising to find something with a heroine after my own heart (SHE HAS A SWORD, your arguments are invalid) and
so many male characters that push all my buttons. I'm also very pleased by the variety of queer men in the title. So far we've met:
- a mysterious pretty boy who loves and is loved by beautiful men, one of the lead players
- a (probably male-leaning) bisexual man
- an evil king
- a sexy prisoner
- a possibly gay morally ambiguous pretty boy
