OK, well, I searched the forums and honestly couldn't find an actual comic book thread, just tons of threads with bits of comic book discussion scattered throughout. So, I figured I would be the one to make it since we obviously need a comic book thread being the ABSOLUTELY AMAZING lot that we are. If, by some chance I did miss the comic thread please point it out to me.
Anyways, basically we'll just discuss this weeks comic releases. As well as the major events and possible occurrences that could happen.
THERE WILL BE SPOILERS IN THIS THREAD.
Also. . .
We're all comic book fans here, and whether it be DC or Marvel, it doesn't matter. No idiotic statements of superiority. Just wanted to get that out there. Now since I've been wanting to get it off my chest right now. . .
Blackest Night is fucking incredible. I am really loving what Geoff Johns is doing with this event and it's bringing back an asston of memories for me. I'm loving the tie-ins too. Especially this weeks Blackest Night: Superman. It was WAY cool to see the crazy ass multicolored Kal-El as his mind was racing with damn never every emotion on the spectrum. However, a few things are bugging me a bit. In Blackest Night #2, Don Hall is unable to be resurrected by a Black Lantern ring because he is at peace. Wouldn't some of these other heroes be at peace as well? Namely Kal-L of Earth-2? After his beating at the hands of Superboy-Prime in Infinite Crisis, he died, but was happy about it because he could see Lois again, at which point they appeared happy amongst the stars? How is it they're both able to be resurrected by Black Lantern rings? It just irks me a bit. . .
Also, did anyone catch Ultimate Spider-Man #1? I'm usually a DC guy but as soon as I started reading that book I couldn't put it down. It's already amongst my monthly pulls now. The art is SO amazing in it, but I guess it's really personal preference since I know people who dislike the style it has to it. I'm definitely thinking this is way awesome so far though. Can't wait for the next issue.
