Wildly comical! February 4, 2010 Posted by Mookie
And today we have yet another batch of sketches of monsters (and Bort) from the Wild Edge territories because it's liberating and creatively rejuvenating and all those other things I've been saying this week. Honestly, these have just been really enjoyable and I'm sure you folks don't need me repeating myself.

Some comics came out yesterday. Here are a few which I felt stood out for one reason or another.

I really, really wish the Justice Society of America would stop yelling at each other. It's all they seem to have been doing for months now.

Red Robin is on the upswing in the mood department. I'm not a fan of dark, gritty superheroes and Tim Drake never seemed to fit that role comfortably. Now that he's smiling again I find this series much more enjoyable.

The conclusion to Ghost Riders: Heaven's on Fire was nothing less than satisfying. Jason Aaron breathed some much-needed life into the Ghost Riders and, seeing as how Ghost Rider was the very first comic book I ever collected, it's nice to see him getting a proper, respectful treatment.

The "ending" to Superman: World of New Krypton was less than satisfying. When a limited series ends with a "To Be Continued!" that only provides a tie-in to the next limited series it makes me want to read that series LESS. You folks didn't see me ending The March Across Maltak with that. Whether you liked that story or not I wrapped it up with a definite "The End," not a "To Be Continued in The March Across Maltak: The Tuskening!"

I don't know what a "tuskening" is. I feel like I should now invent it.

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