News

I'm a sucker for a space opera. June 25, 2009 Posted by Mookie
EDIT: Looks like things still aren't updating on time around here. My apologies for the delayed updates. I've been uploading them well ahead of time but there still seems to be something wrong. I'll try and get this fixed ASAP.

Yesterday was one of those days where a crap-ton of new comic books all come out at once, and many of them were impressive. Since I tend to share my comic bookery with you fine folks, I will do so again today by telling you which of yesterday's buys were my favorites.

Green Lantern continues to rock my socks off. Larfleeze is almost endearingly creepy in his rabid greed, the Guardians of the Universe are dicks and the Blue Lanterns remain my favorite of the new Corps. I'm still waiting for a Ring to fly through my window and select me.

Nova is another space odyssey that continues to rock my cosmic socks off. I always liked Nova in the old days as New Warrior, and now that he's continuing to kick butt with cosmic-level powers... well, blue blazes, I say!

Guardians of the Galaxy is yet another space adventure that... oh, you get the idea. These guys always seems to be in way over their heads and the almost light-hearted mood they bring to interstellar, plane-warping threats is quite refreshing and entertaining as hell.

I was very reluctant to like the new Thunderbolts team. I was very attached to the previous incarnation and was mad to see them all brushed aside for this whole Dark Reign crossover which I'm already sick to death of. However, with Songbird making her reappearance, Ghost getting creepier by the issue and Ant Man being... Ant Man... I'm more interested in seeing where this goes. I still miss Speedba-- I mean, Penance.

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