Friday Comics Chat Open Thread - Bunnies in Corvettes Edition!


Hello again and welcome back! It's that time of the week... the Friday Comics Chat Open Thread! C'mon! Speak up! I can see you out there lurking! Just sign up and comment away! Let us know what you think... what was the best comic book you read this week? How 'bout them DC "One Year Laters"? Did you read Marvel's ANNIHILATION PROLOGUE?
I read the latest 100 BULLETS, and it was the best one in a couple of months... more intrigue, less violence. Still in my Top Ten...

Infinite Crisis Secret Files didn't really reveal anything we didn't know from reading Infinite Crisis. It went into more detail about what life was like for 4 characters trapped in the other dimension, but did we really NEED that much detail? I don't think so. I understood their motivations already, so it kinda felt like I was just treading water reading it.

Having said that, I'm glad to see Marv Wolfman's name back on a DC book and I thought the art was excellent.

Teen Titans Annual (another Marv Wolfman book) was a great read. I hate it when comics are so obviously soap-opera-ish, but this one was so enjoyable that I'm willing to forgive it. Deep down, I know that there is very little difference between things like Teen Titans or the Outsiders and say General Hospital - I just try to ignore it. Anyway, this was a very good read with serviceable artwork. Glad to see Superboy come out of his mope-filled depression.

Superman: OYL was my favorite of the three books I have read so far. Some great stuff going on here, much like Detective Comics the other week. Can't wait to see how some of this stuff comes about - I imagine it will be revealed in "52" or the conclusion of "IC." Looks like we are seeing the beginning of the destruction of the businessman Luthor, which might be interesting. Also glad to see Jimmy Olsen taken down a peg. The cool Jimmy of the past few years was annoying. Seems like Supes is in good hands.

Also picked up LOTDK and Batman Year 100, but didnt' get to read either of them yet.

I just read Tom Strong 36 and I have to say I was kinda glad it's over. The book's been pretty lackluster for a few months now and but it felt like Moore found a nice way to honor the feel of the beginning stories and ended it all very creatively.

Of course, I'm not really sure if the story ended...

Anyone see V for Vendeatta yet? I seen it yesterday and really liked it. I thought it was one of the must powerful movies in the last couple of years. I've Never read the Comics so it was all new to me. Hows does it compare to the comic story? I think I'm gonna pick up the Trade This week.

And did a little reading last night. Read Hystria....Great Action and Humor.." Is Wayne Brady gonna have to Choke a B*t*H!" Ha!

Also read Thunderbolts #99 and #100.Anyone else read this? What do you think of the Death? And the Kiss?

I cannot wait to see V For Vendetta! And, yeah, HYSTERIA was a blast and I've got the last 5-6 TOM STRONGs to catch up on. *sigh* I never seem to make any headway on "The Stack"...
