Eight Thoughts About Eight Comics – Crossed, Saga, Hulk, Justice League, Red Hood, Nova, Star Trek And Savage Wolverine

A few comics I found myself reading today…

ANOTHER BRICK IN THE FOURTH WALL

I always like it when characters say exactly what I’ve been thinking for the last few pages. Like in today’s Crossed Annual in which Si Spurrier basically writes a Garth Ennis comic on a variety of entertaining hallucinogens.

IT NEVER GETS OLD

While Sage gives us that first kiss we’d been looking for. And what happens when a little bit of a baby drops off. We’ve all been there.

FIRED FROM THE GODS

All the lessons of Prometheus, Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde that informed the birth and the life experiences of Dr Bruce Banner have just been ignored haven’t they?

SOME DAYS IT’S HARD TO BE A FIRESTORM

See, that’s what happens when superhero teams have too many members, Justice League. They get in each other’s way. Are you sure you want to increase membership?

HELMETCAM

Man, I hate those screen savers that people leave on your helmet.

BACK TO THE FUTURE OF NOVA

Say isn’t that Principal Strickland from Back To The Future? He does have a thing for skateboards. But Nova #1 is an interesting take on the Spider-Man/Batman origin – what if instead of not having parents, our hero had really bad parents? And one of them actually used to be Nova? It’s a remarkably good start…

MUDD IN YOUR CONTINUITY

Okay, so in Star Trek: Countdown To Darkness… Mudd is female, not male… and is a Bajoran? Possibly one of his many androids? Is that why her jewelry is on the wrong ear?

MUD EVERYWHERE ELSE

While Frank Cho, on Savage Wolverine #1, gives its readers exactly what they want. Shanna taking a mud slide…
