"MCBurnett" said:Sinestro Corp: Superman Prime one-shot. Pete Woods on art, Geoff John writing it. . . sooooo good.
I mean, I like the art, but I can hardly distinguish my Witchblade from my Fathom.

"Spankminister" said:I think to some extent, Marvel and DC try to maintain a "house" style for consistency, but give great artists some leeway. Chris Bachalo (everyone is SUPER POUTY) and Joe Mad (square jaws and gritted teeth) are two artists I can name from the big two. If you go to the indie stuff, there's a lot more stylized art too, since they typically don't have as much editorial mandate for consistency.

"MCBurnett" said:Ugh, I'm torn.On the one hand, Geoff John's run on the Flash is my all time second favorite run on a monthly book ever (next to Chuck Dixon on Nightwing). When they announced he's doing a Rogues miniseries with Scott Kolins last week, I popped about thirty boners. I have almost every single issue that team did signed. Geoff on Flash equals instant win. Plus, the book is a mess right now. What happened with Bart Allen was no doubt the worst thing ever, and ruined an incredible character. And Waid's brief revival has been boring. I'm not even going to pick up the last few issues of it.On the other hand, Barry Allen died long before I started regularly following comics, so Wally West has been "my" Flash all my life. I don't know Barry, and I don't want Wally to go.However, if this is true, and if its anything like GL: Rebirth, it'll be a revival of the entire Flash family, just the way GL: Rebirth brought back the Corp along with Hal, keeping Kyle Rayner and all the others. Maybe Barry will be coming back, and Bart along with him, and Wally will be around as well. I'd be into that. So long as Geoff started another long run on the book to make sure it worked out.
"MCBurnett" said:Did you read the Flash ongoing when Johns was writing it? I think he LOVES Wally. I'm betting the benching of Wally in IC was editorially mandated. That scene was the best scene in the entire series. With Perez pencilling? And when Bart says "Uncle Barry?" I flipped out.Oh and today in Booster Gold: Spoiler: TED KORD LIVES
"Tom" said:Like anything Power Rangers-based could be bad.
"MCBurnett" said:Final Crisis #1 this Thursday! Are you predicting a work of genius or a total clusterfuck? Or am I the only one who cares. . .
"MCBurnett" said:Probably. I have a feeling this thing is going to disappoint a lot of people. I'm not entirely sold yet, either.Dan Turpin, however, was a welcome face.
"Rhoe" said:UK time-lag on publishing comics means its not a viable hobby if I want to follow Marvel or DC...So now I'm sitting reading the JUST published end to Marvel Civil War. Basically, i have to wait for the monthly publishing of a collection, like Avengers Unconquered or Essential X-Men. Or maybe I'm just missing something huge and I could actually be keeping up with the US publishing?
"furyk" said:So I started reading the new Power Girl and its pretty great. Basically half of the book is about Power Girl's boobs in a surprisingly well handled and hillarious way.
"Gokiburi_Chachacha" said:I object. A subject as critical as Power Girl's boobs deserves an examination of at least an entire issue in length.
"Dreg" said:She has a hole in her shirt because she doesn't think she's worthy enough to have a Superman symbol there. Seriously. That's the Geoff Johns explanation. Apparently, she never thought to have regular, blank cloth there.
