I've heard many good things about that title. But I really don't read any superhero books anymore.

Cosmic is my least favorite sub-genre. But I'm not a big fan of space stories in general.

I have read a lot of Philip K. Dick, though. I like his work because he uses the sci fi setting simply to explore really interesting concepts and he doesn't bog down in technical descriptions. It's almost incidental whether a character has a ray gun or a space ship. He'll note that the protagonist is an alien and then provide almost no detail of what he looks like. I love it.


Have you read American Flagg!?

My problem was that, at the time that American Flagg came out, I was totally into superhero books. I thought Secret Wars was the coolest thing in the world. And for whatever reason, i never bothered to read it when my tastes changed.

For the 1763rd time, American Flagg! is genius and everyone should read it.

Especially because I loved Jude's review of issue 1. I bet his review of issue 2 would be even more entertaining.

I can't tell you how tempted I've been to pick a next issue. Starlord should pick this book.

Gotham City Sirens #12

I didn't dislike this at much as everyone else has so far. It definatley didn't have the flair and style of Dini, but I do think it kept both stories going forward. The problem is, it didn't have the quality that this book usually produces.

Between the two stories, Catwoman was probably my favorite but only because it did propell her sisters story forward. (Red Hood Lost Days #1 is my pick) After what happened to Selina's sister her mental collapse is one of the best that has been created in years - organicly comic to the T.

Poison Ivy, on the other hand, I found to be a bit dull. Though it was probably the best characterization of any of the Sirens, there still wasn't a lot there to enjoy. I'm not sure where this plot is going, but it really doesn't seem to matter, either.

The art was less than okay, and this is where the biggest dissapointment lies. I hope when Dini comes back things will pick up again, either way, keep building on Selina's sister. I'm really falling in love with this character.

Harley was just SO off though that her character was not enjoyable at all. Love this series, but this issue was the first to be just so so. Still, I enjoyed it more than a lot of others that we've reviewed.

Story: 6.5
Art: 5
My Score: 6
