Couldn't agree more on all three stories. Foreman's art looked better, but I still don't like it. The story in Iron Fist is fucking awesome though and I love the way his supporting cast is being used and hope to see both the Heroes for Hire and the Immortal Weapons showing up on a regular basis. The Red Lantern book was fucking amazing (the cat was awesome), and I'm really glad it barely connected to Final Crisis. Really it shouldn't have had FC in the title and is required reading if you are reading GL, it should have been listed as an Annual or something. Lastly, I totally agree on the Teen Titans. There was some fun stuff, especially with Cass, but the Bombshell stuff just didn't work for me. Justice League was good fun and seems to be teasing a big story for somewhere down the road.
I also read Reign in Hell, which had an interesting reveal of who was imprisoned. I didn't think Giffen had a desire to return to that character, so despite the tease on the cover I thought it was going a different way. I'm enjoying this series, but not as much as I thought I would.
Trinity was fun, but I really want to see the Trinity get back some time soon.
Nova continues to be one of the best books on the stands as well as one of the most fun. "Quasar Smash!'. Great tie-in with SI and a wonderful job of setting up future stories in this title as well. That last page is a great WTF moment.
Speaking of awesome lines, Herc saying to Namor "Check Thyself!" and the recap being a heavily edited famous Greek poem was fucking hilarious. Great story and a very interesting usage of the Amazons. Loved the take on Namor and his cousin. I would love to see them written more by Pak in a miniseries or in the pages of this book. Another great issue.
Last up, I'd just like to mention that SI:Thor wrapped up with the kind of beatdown and friendship you expect to see in a book about Thor. Anyone that thinks a film version has no chance of working, since Thor doesn't work in a real world setting should read this book. As long as Donald Blake is used in an intelligent way like this, it actually makes perfect sense. The biggest obstacle is the costume, but if you make Thor this much of an ass kicking badass motherfucker, you are going to succeed.
