A) Watch BSG. It was amazing

B) Twigglet had a Jubilee avatar for a super long time. That plus the name Twigglet lead n00bs to believe he was a girl. Thus an OldRama meme was born.

C) Twigglet copied the idea of the Review Group from the Bendis Boards, he ran the group for the first 4 months then handed it off to Punchy who ran the group for about 6 months until Yoni couped him.

Correction: Watch the mini-series and season 1, then do yourself a favor and never watch the rest of it. It ran itself into the ground.

I'll do my best to get in a real review. I was taken aback a bit by some of Sciver's (sp?) art choices. The art seemed really busy, really dense, with a lot of extreme close-ups. There's, like, no breathing space between panels. I've got to assume this was all intentional.

I'll go back and reread this with a clearer (not shitawkeyd) head.

Irredeemable #1
Written by Mark Waid
Art by Peter Krause

This issue impressed me. Superman turns evil has been done before and is a bit of a cliche, but this issue just works. Firstly, I am a huge fan of cold-bloodied villains and the Plutonian is just that. He is a stone-cold, vicious killer and I love that. The people in place to stop him seem scared and almost helpless, but at least they have a plan and seeing that plan unfold is going to be interesting to read about.

The Flash: Rebirth #1 (of 5)
Written by Geoff Johns
Art by Ethan Van Sciver

I both loved and was ticked off by this issue. On the one hand the visuals and most of the story are amazing, on the other hand the continuity stuff is really bothersome. I shouldn't have to read Legion of 3-Worlds to understand the return of Bart. All Flash continuity stuff should have been told in the pages of The Flash. What a waste. But, despite those flaws, I really like Barry, he seems like a totaly hardass when it comes to right and wrong and I love that about him. I am looking forward to what Johns has in store and intrigued by what I have seen so far.

Just read it. Got to think for a while. It was pretty disappointing.
