Postby Keb » Wed Jul 23, 2008 1:53 pm

This week's lunchtime reviews by Chap are up on the site, although not really formatted or picture-ized because I wanted to get them up as fast as possible so you guys can read them now.

Bon Appetit.
SHABBA!

I agree with Chap on Trinity. Nothing wrong with it, but it was basically pulling things together and setting things up.

Morgaine rocks, though. It must be said. I've really come to appreciate that whack-job.

I haven't gotten to my other books because ... something ... is going on in the Tigers game that is taking most of my attention. Can't say what it is though. *knocks on desk*

JLoA was, frankly, boring. OK, Amazo's fighting the League. And? Blech. I picked it up because I thought Wondy had some role in it. At this point, I'm done picking up random issues of JLoA.

Benes' art is fantastic. That part I liked. But what was with the name-tags for Zee, Dinah, and Vixen? Are we not going to know who they are? I was confused by that.

Anyways, I don't get it. Can we have a Whedon/Cassaday Justice League already?

See? It did nothing for me. I get that you hate Metlzer's run, but I'd take that in a million years over this.

What did I learn about the characters? What did I learn about the League? About their history?

Nothing. That's what.

Amazo can duplicate their powers. Got that. I had that years ago. And?

who needs to "learn" something about every character every issue? sometimes it's just about superheroes fighting super-villains. :-D

and regardless...we learned a little something about Vixen and what's behind her power wonkiness. we get little character bits into how Firestorm operates, how Canary leads, etc.

JLA was OK. A good fight issue and Flash had a great moment so I'm cool. Also the stuff about some magical being fucking with Animal Man and Vixen's powers is interesting.

As for a Marvel book, are you reading Daredevil? I thought that was yet another strong issue and it had a hell of a cliffhanger. How a bout a review of that?
