i'll probably check ultimatum for david finch, loeb's writing has been atrocious for years, it baffles me that someone so obivously incompetent gets such high profile gigs...his comics are straight ripoffs, you can read them in like 3 minutes... his ultimates 3 was some of the most insipid writing i've come across, plus he made ultimate black panther captain america in disguise (which is supposedly explained in ultimate captain america annual---apparently you don't need a series to get an annual anymore-- but why should we have to buy another 4 dollar comic for an explanation of a banal plot twist?) did anyone check that hulk arc nakhi uploaded? garbage! hot, steaming, leaky bag left on the pavement for days trash. i hate his work, he embodies all of the negative traits of superhero comics.

i'm a die hard spidey fan, and i can't even read the book now...it's such a throwback it's intellectually insulting...i tried to give them a chance after they ditched mj, but the storylines are boring and played out...one of my friends swears this is a great comic but i'm not seeing it, even the story with venom was bland...it reads like a 70s marvel book and i mean that in the worst way...marvel has not been impressing me lately, my pull list has imploded in the last few months.

punisher's still good though, the art on the new arc has been good. it's not up to ennis level but it's still worth checking out, and one of the better series they have right now.

Dr. Simon Hurt
11-16-2008, 08:45 PM
Cacophony is dope btw.

seriously? i don't want to disrespect you or your opinion, but this is the type of 'vanity project' material that does not need to be supported. the art was amateurish trash, and kevin smith has to inject his humor and voice into characters and situations that don't require it...his joker in particular read wrong *some of his dialogue read as too frat boy comedy movie, and then him offering anal sex to onomatopeia for cash and his reference to killing batman in order to defile his corpse sexually...really? everytime the story actually begins to feel tense he ruins it ...the book was absolute shit. the fact that flanagan (one of smith's buddies) was able to get this assignment is nepotism at it's worst. buy the joker hardcover, or batman: the black glove, or all star batman hardcover if you need a dark knight fix; and that's just more recent stuff, there's about 100 hundred batman mini series and graphic novels that warrant your attention and scratch. and i don't hate smith i loved his daredevil run, and clerks but everything else leaves me cold. he has the same problem as joss whedon, all of his characters sound the same and he tries to make everything hip and self referential.

sorry to rant but i've seen this book given props on so many forums it drives me insane...this was not good on any level.

oDoUoSoKo
11-16-2008, 10:14 PM
it isnt fantastic, in fact its easily shit-on-able...but its entertaining. Right now as far as Batman goes, its all about RIP..but if u look at how many Batman related comics there are currently running, this one is atleast some where up there. The art isnt that bad btw.

I don't get the comic books, as they come out, I get em in full stories, and usually years later....

Some things I can discuss are.......spiderman: reign, read it recently..

um...lone wolf and cub.

Punisher, anything from the 80's until a few years ago...

Wolverine and x-men, anything from the 80's until a few years ago...
or we can discuss what marvel did to his origin, I don't really like it but oh well...

WARPATH

quote=Dusk;1387570]why and what dont u like about his origin?[/quote]

For one, it was written. This detracted from the character. Not knowing who or where he came from gave the character a dynamic that kept people guessing.

Then on his official Bio page, it states the different languages he spoke,

Wolverine is fluent in many languages, including Japanese, Russian, Chinese, Cheyenne, Lakota, and SpanishTwo of which are native languages....They have yet to reveal when and where he picked them up. There was his stint with silver fox a Blackfoot Indian. Which he could only relate to him learning one or the other which I demonstrate as follows:

IF they are referring to the Sishapa sub-division of the Lakota tribe, it would make sense, for the Lakota language at least.

or

IF they may be reffering to the:

Plains Algonquian Languages
Arapahoan Languages
Arapaho (http://www.native-languages.org/arapaho.htm)
Gros Ventre (Atsina) (http://www.native-languages.org/gros.htm)
Blackfoot (Siksika, Peigan, Blackfeet) (http://www.native-languages.org/blackfoot.htm)
Cheyenne (http://www.native-languages.org/cheyenne.htm)
It explains how he learns one and not the other. The Blackfoot tribe is a different tribe then the sub-division of the Lakota but they are NOT one in the same.

At any rate, it is possible that we could have learned them both from Silver fox, they never relate this in any of the stories. It's just known that he can speak these languages. Most of the other languages they have explained via training, adventures, and what not, and his time spent in madripoor. If anyone has any information on this please direct me to those comic issues, because I haven't read them yet, and I've read a lot of wolverine's.

Which gives urks me about his origin. There is a robust history that was going on during young "James Howelett's" life that they could have utilized for Wolverines origin, but they didn't. There were many places we could have picked up his base skill set, but what we end up with is a history that hardly describes who the character is or WAS before his origin was revealed.

I can build more on this in a little bit.

^^^I'm an Inhumans/ cosmic marvel fan, but they (meaning superhero writers at both Marvel and DC) have seriously lost the ability to tell a conclusive, self contained story. Enough with the fucking crossovers! Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar empire was good until it just sort of...ended. And was Vulcan a necessary retcon anyway? Those covers little very tempting though (goddamn it!)... is Brandon Peterson drawing the War of Kings?

Dr. Simon Hurt
12-02-2008, 04:59 PM
why and what dont u like about his origin?

probably that they made him some effiminate jackass named James Howlett...as a story the original Origin miniseries was good, as an origin of Wolverine it failed. And the less said about the Origins series the better. The epitome of decompression, telling a 1 issue story in 5 is not a good look.

oDoUoSoKo
12-02-2008, 10:50 PM
you seem pretty disappointed with Comics in general nowadays....what do u like thats been released as of late?

Dr. Simon Hurt
12-03-2008, 01:29 AM
I'm not disappointed with comics in general, just disappointed with the tendency of Marvel/DC recently to have an endless number of events/crossovers running consecutively and sometimes concurrently. They can't gain readers with this startegy so the only other thing I see them doing is alienating the more frustrated members of the core fanbase. A good approach is stuff like Detective Comics (Nguyen's killing the art right now, Dini's stuff is top notch), All Star Superman, stuff that uses the familiar characters to simply tell a good story not status quo altering, cataclysmic event bullshit. Punisher is good, Fables/Jack of Fables (and even they're having a crossover!), Elephantmen, Madame Xanadu...besides that I've been catching up on old Vertigo stuff like Y: The Last Man, Sandman, and waiting for the next League of Extarordinary Gentlemen to come out (Alan Moore is the greatest comic writer of all time, but you guys probably knew that already...I read V for Vendetta for like the 10th time a few days ago and it still holds up). I dig All Star Batman, Grant Morrison's Batman has been frustrating at times but generally enjoyable... Spider-Man and X-Men are my absolute favorites (other than Batman) and their current status quo's are driving me insane (the Joe Kelly/ Chris Bachalo story in ASM was good, some of the art in this series drives me to pick it up) X-Men is a mess, the Decimation stuff destroyed the raison d'etre of the whole shit, plus Rogue, Storm, Gambit have gotten no face time and Bishop's a nut who wants to murder a baby now...oh, and Black Panther's been a mess for since the Civil War issues which were good except for the Secret Invasion story which owns the world, get those issues if you don't have 'em, but T'Challa deserves cosistently good writing not Hudlin's half-assed shit...oh, the Black Panther's going to be a women with a new #1? great...sorry for the ramble...

Dr. Simon Hurt

Silent War was the business, loved the artwork in that and they should've let Hine finish his trilogy (With this and Son of M)...are they saying he was a Skrull in this now? can somebody give me spoilers from the secret invasion inhumans? was a he a skrull in this or world war hulk?

Amazing Spider-Man has had some fantastic artwork (Marcos Martin might be my favorite Spider-Man artist of all time on the strength of what 5 issues?) lately and some good writing (and some shit too, they're trying too hard to give it a retro feel)...some of the changes they've made since ditching MJ seem pointless to me but overall i'll agree the book has been better than it's been since like John Romita Jr. left during Straczynski's run...i just hate retcons. Punsiher Max is still butter to me, it's not as good as when Ennis was writing but it's still a quality self contained comic. I thought Heart of Hush was good, Nguyen's art is great...what did you think of RIP? I found Batman 681 underwhelming but enjoyed 682 and Morrison's run overall, i just think he writes in an occasionally superficial way and while some of the ideas were brilliant he didn't invest them with sufficient depth. Alan Moore or Neil Gaiman would've worked harder to really delve into Bats going nuts, i thought the Zur-En-Arrh stuff was clever though.

And about the Black Bolt thing, when did the skrulls replace him? and can somebody school me on War of Kings? I checked out of Annihilation Conquest on the first hardcover, and have read Rise and Fall of Shi'ar but not the Vulcan miniseries...will I be lost?

Final Crisis 6

Dr. Simon Hurt
01-19-2009, 12:47 PM
^^^how do you feel about this event so far? i think it's been pretty sloppy in terms of plotting, but the art has been great and the bit with batman was crazy, if predictable if you read the 'last rites' story. grant morrison's been disappointing me lately, and i generally love his writing.

does anybody read iron fist? i just starting picking this up on a lark and have been digging it.

oDoUoSoKo
01-19-2009, 12:55 PM

no i meant the wanted stuff, i'm enjoying what fraction's doing with iron man, and larocca's art is mgnificent...fraction's writing the cheesiest x-men i've ever seen over in uncanny so i dropped that (the only x-book i'm buying is x-force which is dope, and astonishing is alright whenever it comes out)...is war machine any good, i'm salty they turned rhodes in a weird looking cyborg.

its ok, but i hate the art. ALOT...eloels, and ya X Men has been almost unbearable as of late, ive only been reading Cable.


how bout this question

Final Crisis Vs. Secret Invasion.

you should try x-force, quality art and story and unapologetically violent...cable's alright too, i like the art but it's been rather slow and turning bishop into wiley coyote wasn't a good look...

choosing between secret invasion and final crisis is like choosing between a root canal and sodomy...yu's art saved secret invasion for me (i bought the first 3 issues and dropped it, it amazes me how little bendis can have happen in a single issue...it was way too short on narrative and character development, and overly dependent on fight scenes (plus it's almost worthless unless you read the avengers books, everything from nick fury's plans to the skrull's method of evading detection; stuff that should've been in the main miniseries)...both events require you to have in depth knowledge of the universe and the status quo...i miss events like infinity gauntlet that were legitimately self contained...my favorite bit of secret invasion was the black panther tie in--- issues 39-41; buy that if you haven't, that shit was brilliant. final crisis, has just been a total abortion, i bought the first issue and have been downloading the rest.

are you going to buy dark avengers? deodato's art looks good as always, but fuck paying 3.99 for some bendis decompressed bs that'll take 3 minutes to read...alot of the marvel writers need to work on their pacing...comics are too now expensive for this huge panels with no words/ whole issue is one scene garbage.

what don't you like about the art on iron man? it looks really classy and cinematic to me.

oDoUoSoKo
01-21-2009, 07:56 PM
actually, my bad, i am following X Force, whoops. As for iron man...idk...just dont like the art. I picked up Dark Avengers, and its sort of interesting, there were two picks that i knew were gonna happen (Wolverine, Iron Patrio) the others were surprising. The art is fantastic.

Dr. Simon Hurt
01-21-2009, 08:26 PM
yeah i leafed through it, was blown away by the art and bought it (damn you deodato) and actually enjoyed it, even though i was disappointed that i called literally the whole roster back when they leaked the promo picture... did you check out ellis and deodato's thunderbolts? that was really good also, and setup norman's current status quo and laid the groundwork for some of this team (ms. marvel and hawkeye and spidey in particular)...i'm digging the noir books also (spider-man noir and x-men noir) have you checked those out? they're worth it, particularly the x-men, but only if you're into alternative interpretations of the characters that deviate heavily from continuity.

01-21-2009, 10:13 PM

KZA
01-22-2009, 01:00 AM
it sold out to the local one i usually go and also the thunderbolts issue also since it had him on 2-3 pages IIRC. so i called another shop they said they might get a new shipment tonight.. and if the people who bought it in advance didn't get it tonight then it was first come first serve, so i called one more shop that was near by and they said they had 20 copies so i drove to that one and got it. last week i saw it on ebay going for 700 dollars looks like the hype for it slowed down for the 2nd printing.

Dr. Simon Hurt
01-22-2009, 08:59 AM
no surprise, they reprinted them, i was gonna grab one, but that shit sucks. Especially that stupid cover.

cosigned...amazing spider-man is all over the place in terms of quality; for every good story, there's like 3 issues that are pointless, and the obama thing was lame-- all that hype for 5 pages. incognito was awesome; as for origin, i bought it when it first came out but it was slow as hell, 5 issue story arcs that could've been done in 1-2 issues, plus dillon was an extremely bad fit on the artwork...has it improved at all?

oDoUoSoKo
01-22-2009, 06:23 PM
i think so^^ the Deadpool thing they had going on was great, and as of right now its going ok.


as for ASM....the New Ways to Die thing was awesome IMO...but then after, JRJR and Gugg. took a break, and let a bunch of small arcs get made, but now they are back and back to the main storyline, so far with a bang too.

i've been cherry picking which arcs to buy on ASM (I enjoyed Straczynski's run and liked MJ was not buying it at all for a quite a while, but I've been a Spidey fan since i was like 3-4 yeas old), and New Ways to Die was awesome, the Punisher issue was good, and I'll buy anything Bachalo or Marcos Martin draws (if you like Martin's art buy Doctor Strange: The Oath nd Batgirl: Year One) I got the latest issue and the new story seems intriguing now that they are resolving some of the subplots, and there were some funny bits...a Spidey comic should always have some humor...

I can never find Simon Dark, though I've heard it's good. Do you get Astonishing X-Men? The latest issue was decent, but the story's moving hella slow. And I'll buy pretty much anything Warren Ellis writes, but he seems disinterested.

the weapon x series is by the creative team of the get mystique arc in wolverine, the one prior to old man logan. I dug that, and this is supposed to be hardcore logan without excessive continuity. but spider-woman should be sick, bendis (whe he's not doing cosmic or epic stuff) and maleev is a good combination... their daredevil run was classic.

This is pretty late but ive always slept on a lot of DC titles cuz i follow Marvel more...but i just picked up the TPB's Green Lantern - The Rebirth, and Green Lantern - Vol. 1 No Fear by Geoff Johns...just started reading seems pretty dope so far anyone read these?

Dr. Simon Hurt
01-30-2009, 01:20 PM
^^^I've been meaning to get these since everyone says this series is great, but I never have the cash, and something else ends up catching my eye lol...I did read Rebirth and didn't really enjoy it besides the artwork, since it dealt more with retconning the whole parallax situation instead of telling it's own story (though it was well written) I'll have to cop these one day

As far as Final Crisis goes, (dusk and nakhi) if you read Superman Beyond and Batman Last Rites it makes the story generally easier to follow, but it was a cluttered mess...I did enjoy it more than Secret Invasion though, simply because it was less predictable and was far more ambitious...but as a whole the crossovers have been weak as fuck, as they don't tell a self contained and conclusive story...to me the only good crossover in the last few years was Annihilation (buy those 3 volumes if you haven't, this goes sdeblasi too, if you like Green Lantern this is scifi cosmic stuff so you'll probably enjoy it.) Probably because they had to work with less popular characters, it worked harder at telling a satisfying, conclusive, and self contained storyline. The sequel, Conquest, was good also, but if you want a quality superhero epic with high stakes, buy Annihilation. And it wasn't even hyped...all the mega hyped crossovers hve been garbage in my opinion. House of M sucked, Infinite Crisis was even more of a mess than Final Crisis, Civil War was disappointing, so was World War Hulk. Makes me wish more of these 'evets' were like Infinity Gauntlet, which just told an entertaining and epic story, self-contained, and wasn't worried about blowing up the status quo or setting up the next big event (which is something Marvel has been guilty of with all of its recent crossovers, except Annihilation...Civil War, World War Hulk, Messiah Complex, and Secret Invasion all had me going 'that's it? wtf?'.

^^^^eh, the punisher's pretty good, ut you're better off downloading it. the first issue was bleh, plus the MAX stuff is just so much better.

Don't buy the Bishop miniseries, that shit sucked. It was retcon city...storm's his grandma (wtf?), who taught him about scarlet witch (which contradicts recent stories), and he was a street theif when he was a kid after his parents were killed in war (isn't that storm's story?). It was bullshit, bishop gets a raw deal, again.

The best shit I bought this week was Hotwire #1, Black Lightning #3, and Agents of Atlas #1 (Iron Fist and Iron Man were good too though, I got burned on X-Men Noir #3 even though it's on my pulls)

that 500 cover is a dope piece except storm looks a little bloated and the light sources are kind of weird.

and bendis needs to realize he can't write mystical or sci-fi stuff and stick to crime/espionage and ultimate spider-man of course...the spells he had doom and morgan saying were embarassing...give me the cheesy rhyming shit from the 60s-70s over 'afrika bamabaata intifada' repeated 5 times...he writes doom terrbly too...even the art was off...it's been a while since i was so pissed after buying a comic...and the fact that he has so much control over marvel is annoying too...dude was consulting on the thor movie...has he even written thor at all other than the 2 seconds he was in secret invasion?

Dr. Simon Hurt
02-22-2009, 06:10 PM
i got the ross one, and my girl got me the dodson one because she's a rogue fan (who wasn't even in the issue lol)...the writers suck now and seem to not want to do anything with some of the more popular characters (psylocke, gambit, rogue, nightcrawler, etc) wrote out kitty pryde, made bishop a villian. that whole 'no new mutants' schtick has ruined the books. the creative direction is terrible, all they seem to focus on is cyclops and emma frost.

dodson's art makes me still check it, but the books are the worst they've been in a while...they never really recovered after grant morrison left in my opinon.

anyway, this cover's the shit:

Dr. Simon Hurt

^^^legacy is dull though (who really wanted an xavier series?) and the art is bland (and i loved carey's run with bachalo and ramos).

character assassination is alright, the spider tracer killer plot is the best part in my opinion (they must've been watching 'the wire') it pales in comparison to 'new ways to die' though.

oDoUoSoKo

Thunderbolts^^ for sure

and as for Origins, basically, Nick Fury approached Logan at a bar and told him that his son had just taken over the wolverine role. yap yap yap, Nick Fury pretty much tells Logan that all the people named howard in his past are related...to him (mother, previous bosses, professor who fitted him with the adamantium..etc) The howard family have apparently been like puppets to romulus.

Dr. Simon Hurt
02-26-2009, 08:03 PM
^^^hudson family...this was hinted at earlier in the series...i read it at the shop; they've made his origin too incestuous and convoluted at this point for my taste...I liked it better when he was mysterious and there were just islated bits known (weapon x, silver fox)

new avengers 50 was a fucking rip-off...5 bucks for this? i've got every issue of this title ad i've never enjoye a single issue lol...i want to like it, realy, the art is consistently brilliant and i love the characters, but bendis has not put together an interesting story yet...it's all too linear and simplistic, and the hood and his band of z-list villians? again? really? at least the art was pretty.

the new avengers art was good save the page that was done by Andy Lanning (i think it was him) that shit was fuckin terrible.

which page was that? I liked the spidey one the best, mcniven drew spidey like mcfarlane right there. I didn't like the wolverine one or the cage on as far as the writing went; cage was written like a dick, and wolverine was written like an idiot (kill! kill! i don't know who this guy is! kill! kill! since when is wolvie dumb? they need to go check how claremont wrote him--- this was almost as bad as when whedon had his thought process in a fight as 'i like beer') the ms marvel page looked pretty but was incoherent.

main_man
02-27-2009, 03:04 PM
i dont know, a lot of critics pan new avengers but i gotta say, they are probably my favorite super team since mid 80's- early 90's x men. they are always outpowered and outnumbered, but they make it work. and the personalities on the team are so different it makes for an interesting dynamic.
i guess never being a fan of the glossy, jla-like avengers. i just really, really like the underground vibe new avengers has. and spidey on a team is FANTASTIC. he's great in that book. i hope iron fist sticks around.him and cage have always been personal favorites.
and i just like bendis' writing. he's been spreading himself thin latley. but i truly enjoyed new avengers #50. was it too expensive, yes. but marvels been pulling ho shit for the past couple months anyway.

Dr. Simon Hurt
02-27-2009, 06:43 PM
^^^ya but thor 600 was 5 bucks 2 and they threw in back-up stories and reprints of classics to make it worthwhile. plus strasczysnki is a much better writer than bendis.

trust me, i use to be fan of dude; torso, jinx, sam and twitch,hellspawn, ultimate spider-man, alias, daredevil...he can be a great writer when he wants, i just don't think his strengths lie with sprawling superhero epics, to me he always fals when he tries. i agree he writes a good spidey, he always says at least one lol thing every issue, and he has seriously invigorated cage. i just think the stories have been too simplistic...compare it to the classic claremont x-men where there was always subplots and character arcs and this comes up really short. i guess you can count the skrull stuff and the doctor strange stuff as long running subplots but i'd say it's just drawn out. i'm sick of shit taking twice as long as it needs to. give me over-compressed over decompressed all day.

to me this team is much more jla-like than it has been in the past considering it includes spider-man and wolverine. wolverine really shouldn't be in the book; i don't mind him, i like the character, but it really makes no sense for him to be here.

the art has been saving this book, it's the only reason i've continued to buy it.

^ all valid points. yay727.

i guess i mean the tone of the characters rather than the popularity. and being that wolvie is a favorite of mine, i guess i dont mind as much as others. and bendis is at his best with the street level stories, no doubt. i'm just a fan of the new avengers, what can i say.
and by jla-like i mean with the major powerful & patriotic characters. i just feel a different vibe with cage, wolvie, spider-man and the gang than with cap, thor, panther and the old school avengers. but bendis on daredevil and alias are the shit, without a doubt. a max cage or heroes for hire series would be too damn tough.

i'm going to continue purchasing the book, because i've got every issue and i can't see dropping something i've been supporting for almst 5 years (i'm a completist, it'll have to become really awful for me to drop it) plus i want to see how the sorcerer supreme story plays out...i get what you're saying about the characters now, the 'resistance fighter' vibe has alot of potential that han't been utilized yet...hopefully spider-woman stays on the team, and they actually bring the pain to osborn, and soon.

dusk, greg horn did the ms marvel page, he was doing the covers for her book for a while, he used to be good before he went into photoshop- softcore porn mode.

Dr. Simon Hurt
02-28-2009, 10:09 PM
then you could still do a wolverine max; the first 20 or so issues of his current series had him out of costume in relatively street level stuff and were labeled 'explicit content' plus his series before that he was out of costume for a while when he rocked the eye patch in madripoor. wolverine max would be money...but i guess it won't happen now, he's got a cartoon on nickelodeon featuring the x-men lol...which i dig, even though it's funny that no one ever gets killed.

used to be a favorite of mine back when it first came out; the story was too meandering, and capullo eventually stopped drawing it so as I got older and more into indie/vertigo stuff i dropped it...I peeped it recently when david hine was writing it but it had drifted too far from it's original concept for my taste and the artwork wasn't dynamic enough to me...i have the last few issues that portacio drew but i havent read them...i know al simmons is no longer the main character which is bullshit.

I did not read it yet gonna wait till tonite


.................. hate to say it (because I abhor the cover), but this may very well be the best Wonder Woman story Iíve ever read. Diana is treated as a realistic person, not some symbol or image of all womanhood, and her unique abilities and heritage are an essential part of the tale. The Hiketeia is a vow where one party takes responsibility for sheltering another. When a murderer hunted by Batman vows herself to Diana, conflict ensues ó but this story involves much more than two JLA members on opposite sides. Themes of justice, honor, protection, and compulsion intertwine with changing ideas of civilization and acceptable behavior, all of it overseen by the Furies.
http://images.amazon.com/images/P/1563899140.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg
Wonder Woman:
The Hiketeia
Buy this book (http://www.amazon.com/dp/1563899140/?tag=comicsworthreadi)
The art is lovely, as expected, although I found the scenes of violence hard to follow at times. That might be intentional, or it might be my dislike of placing myself too much into such encounters. On a lighter note, it was a pleasure to see Diana in real clothes. Too many artists have forgotten that her battle armor isnít all she ever wears.
The most thought-provoking part of this story is the way fate and choice interact. What are we compelled to do? What do we choose to do? Why do we lie to ourselves about what we must do? Those questions make Batman the perfect antagonist. As a character often portrayed as driven, his compulsions set the events in motion. He denies that he has choice and causes death as a result.
The reliance on physical fighting was my primary disappointment. I know, theyíre superheroes, they have to slug things out ó but I expected better of both Diana and Batman. They never once seem to consider that perhaps thereís another way. Maybe thatís not their fault, but a reflection of the forces spurring them on. Still, I believe that thereís a better way then Diana winding up stepping on his head. (But without that, we couldnít have a fetish cover!)
Rucka captures the Amazonís voice well. It befits a foreign princess without being too removed or stilted. It demonstrates caring and thoughtfulness, reflection without self-absorption, even humor. Neither Batman nor readers give Diana the respect she deserves as a character; this book changes that.

sounds interesting; i'll have to check that out.

100 bullets...i've been meaning to check it out, just have never bothered for some reason, it's on my list of series to cop in bulk like preacher. but then again, i've not been impressed by anything i've read from azzarello (cage, batman: broken city, joker)...the writing is too minimal for my tastes, it doesn't have the depth and density that i tend to gravitate towards.

let me know if the series is the shit though, i'll cop the first tpb and check it out. it's about to end, right?

i read it..it was ok, i also said i wouldnt get it.

yeah apparently bruce isn't going to be batman for at least a year after this, grant morrison will be writing a series 'batman and robin' which likely features dick grayson and damian.
