Bebop and Rocksteady Coming to Pages of TMNT

Spoiler Ahead

 brpage3.jpg

They're coming. I've been waiting a very long time for this. Bebop and Rocksteady were my favorite characters in the cartoon. I always like the oddball characters or the character that isn't necessarily everyone's immediate favorite and you didn't get anymore oddball than Bebop and Rocksteady. Read more »

Captain America 19- Writer- Ed Brubaker, Artist- Steve Epting Read more »

5/5/2010

This week;

Astioning Spider-Man and Wolverine #1- I don't expect it to be good, but it's worth giving a chance.
Brightest Day #1- I really hope that two year from now we're not reviewing issue #23 or 24. Hopefully this is a nice quick story, which in today's standards will be about anywhere between 6 and 8 pages.
Incorruptible #5- Liking the story.
Irredeemable #13- There's needs to be a resolution soon. Pluntoniun is still at large, It seems to basically be the same thing stretched out from issue to issue in regards to the basic plot. Read more »

This week's stuff;

1) Aladdin: Legacy of the Lost #3- A really good interpretation of the classic story.
2) Captain America #605- If I have to see them rhyme "shield" with "wield" one more time. I'm going to do something that rhymes with "tomit fall dover nyself".
3) Detective Comics #864- Should start a new story line. Me happy. Last story line not so good.
4) Fantastic Four #578- Annulus is back. Should be good. Read more »

4/21/2010

And here we go again;

1) Doomwar #3- He better wreak some havoc by this issue or it's going to be all for naught. Doom is starting to join the same club as Wolverine and Deadpool. They're starting to use him everywhere. Sooner or later he's going to join the orange lanterns.
2) Green Lantern #53- It'll most likely be a Blackest Night wrap up and a Brightest Day introduction. Unless some questions are answers, I'm gonna be mighty annoyed.
3) Marvelous Land of Oz #5- Good take on the story. Good artwork. Can't go wrong. Read more »

Check out Steve's appearance on the Dr. Blogstein show

Roger called me afterwards and told me he started screaming the answer to the third question at the computer when I hesitated to answer it.

If only I had a window open....

The comics I plan on picking up this week are as follows;

1) Batgirl #9- The last few issues were kind of blah, but I'm gonna stick with it a while longer and give it a chance.
2) Black Widow #1- Interested to see where they go with this. She's had two minis in the last six months and now her own on-going. They always do this, they really amp up a character to the point where she's everywhere.
3) Brightest Day #0- Hopefully the cover price is 0 as well. I never understood the 0 concept. Are you that excited about releasing the comic that you can't even name it number 1. Read more »

Batman: Dark Knight Dynasty

Dynasty

All right, someone gave me Batman: Dark Knight Dynasty to read. And against my better judgment, I did.
I'm all for alternate versions of our heroes as long as it's contained and doesn't filter into the mainstream universe.
That being said, Dark Knight Dynasty is split into three chapters; past, present and future. Now right off the bat (no pun intended, ah you know what, it's intended), I'll like to say that there is Monkey-Robin in the future story. That's right, Monkey-Robin. A monkey in Robin's clothing. And he talks! Perfect English, just like the regular Robins! Read more »

What I plan on picking up this week;

Captain American #604
Green Lantern #52
Marvel Projects #7. This is one of those where I have still yet to read past #2, but have been just collecting them basically to complete the set. If it ends up being God-awful, I will sell it or set it on fire. Either or.
Nemesis #1. Millar is very hit or miss so I can end up regretting it. *However, it's a #1 and it doesn't hurt to at least give it a shot.
Peter Parker #1. *Please see above explanation.
Superman/Batman #70
Uncanny X-Men #522
x-Factor #203 Read more »
