It has been six years and one month since the last issue of Legion Of Super-Heroes hit comic book shops. Thanks to Brian Michael Bendis and Ryan Sook, we have a new Legion, complete with Superboy. As promised, this is a new Legion, free from six decades of history. Is the wait worth it?
It's been a running trend that the comic industry under-compensates the creative people behind your favorite comic books. It goes back to the beginning of the industry. I was talking about this with a friend on the phone the other day.
I didn't know if I wanted to review Excalibur #1 or not. It's not that I thought it was bad. It really doesn't seem much like an X-book. Of course, then I realized that at its best, the original Excalibur didn't seem like one, either. I gave it a second read through.
Harleen is ftom DC's Black Label line, giving us a new look at the origin of Harley Quinn. It's well established that Psychiatrist Harleen Quinzel was treating the Joker in Arkham Asylum. The Clown Prince of Crime managed to draw the already unbalanced doctor across the line into becoming his accomplice.
Tales From The Dark Multiverse:The Death Of Superman #1 is the latest building off of the success of the Batman Who Laughs. These comic series' names are getting too long. While the premise is a "dark" multiverse, what we have laid out is a series of alternate earths that are just as viable as any in the "regular" multiverse.
The Internet blew up recently when Tony Isabella posted to Facebook that he doesn't care for Batman. It's an opinion I've heard before, but not by someone that actually has worked on super-hero comics.
It's been a while since we explored the Multiverse. It's been so long, I had to look up and see if there was a format to this column that's not really a column. Of course, there's not a format, so let's just get started.
On Netflix, one of the best bits of original programming is The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Fan service wouldn't be complete without a comic series tie-in. It's always better when they give a little extra story, enriching the TV series. BOOM! Studios has Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance. I could go on, but let's just give you the press release and preview pages from BOOM! Studios. The book hits shops this week, October 30, 2019.
Sex Criminals, the mature readers title from Image Comics is coming back. We last saw Suzie and Jon back in June of 2018. Some of us were beginning to think that it was becoming the victim of it's own success. Never fear, Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky are bringing it back. In January, 2020 the final story arc, "The End."sees its beginnings.
Because it's Tracy Icenhour's birthday, we're going to review the latest issue of GI Joe. For those not paying attention, the U.S. has surrendered to Cobra. Duke resisted and was shot in the head by Major Bludd.
Giant Days has finally come to an end now. Shut up. I'm not crying, you're crying. As a courtesy to fans that haven't read the comic yet, I'm going to be trying my hardest to not spoil it.
