MINE! It's all MINE! April 9, 2009 Posted by Mookie
April's Donation Wallpaper is up for your appraisal and approval. I do hope you like it. In case you're having trouble seeing the thumbnail just Refresh your browser and that ought to do the trick.

I picked up a couple of nifty comic books yesterday, too. Here are some of my recommended reads.

The new Green Lantern was awesome, as usual. The first Orange Lantern was an unexpectedly cool and brutal bad guy, even if I don't like his name very much. The Blue Lanterns, however, remain my favorite of the new Corps.

The new miniseries, Deadpool: Suicide Kings, had a fantastic start that captured all of Deadpool's humor and insanity. I'm so glad some very witty writers have gotten their hands on him lately. I only hope Marvel doesn't put him in too many titles at once because, as much as I'm enjoying Deadpool now, I'm afraid the overexposure could make me sick of him.

DC's last attempt at a Warlord series was... bad. The newest attempt has a faster start, more solid artwork and doesn't waste time with a lengthy origin. From the first time you see the Warlord, he's just that. The Warlord. And the people of this sword-and-sorcery world need his help. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and geek out.
