Orange Lantern that looks like a cross between Gonzo and a Razorback. He's greedy, exists as mainly a source of comedy nowadays and is rather one-dimensional, hence Zechs' love of the character.

Dex-Starr is the Red Lantern rage cat for whom Darcie insists my cat is not named after, despite being the same color and temperment.


Yeah I was totally mixing them up.

I liked JSA, Teen Titans, and a bit of his Flash w\ Kolins but everything since Infinite Crisis has left me a bit cold. I'm not predisposed to hate the guy but his name on a book is a bit of a red flag for me.

I wouldn't mind reading Johns' work for a week, but I'm kinda tired of him. I read so many of his books the last few years that it all started to look the same.

Johns has been in a rut for a while, it takes working with a different artist like Francis Manapul to shake him out of it.

The Red Stands for Irony

It's hard to come up with words describing this issue, but I'll try.

Suicide Forest #1 was a solid first issue that did everything that a first issue should. Beginning with a brief explanation of Aokigahara Forest, Suicide Forest made the wise choice on focusing on the characters affected by the many suicides that happen within the confines of the Aokigahara rather than on the characters who have committed suicide themselves. Blending horror and tragedy together masterfully, El Torres and Gabriel Hernandez have crafted a fine first issue of what will probably be an excellent series. Hernandez's art in particular makes the book visually beautiful, even if the subject matter is anything but.

Story: 8
Art: 10

Also, provided that we don't have someone man up and trade spots, I'll give Zero a two week holiday clemency (since he said he'd be unable to do it to the start of the year) and we'll decide next week's pick via a poll on Monday.

What if I just give you a pile of heroin? Can we call it a no instead?

Superman/Batman could be a good choice
WildCats 30-end of the wildstorm universe

Read this last night, and liked it, the art especially. Review tomorrow, and as I said, any UK or Europe based poster who can't get a copy, I can send you mine.

Do we have a pick for next week yet?

So it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get my hands on this. And I'm far too lazy to participate in any mailing of a review copy. Someone scan it for me.

I'm not getting this, but I did look at it when I made my weekly run to my local comic shop. It looked interesting, but I didn't buy it because I'm trying to watch my budget.
