Nine Thoughts About Nine Comics – Ultimate Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Fatale, Avengers: The Enemy Within, FF, Battlestar Galactica, Luther Strode, Nova And The Back Of DC Books

Miles Morales has had a year without being Ultimate Spider-Man. And without his mother. His dad has an idea. Move. IMG_0043Hawaii or England? It’s a dilemma. Maybe another comic could help out. Wonder Woman?

I don’t know why Wonder Woman likes to blow up London whenever it can, in whatever reality it can. I know we had the Olympics, but we didn’t expect Olympus to keep descending upon us. Good to know the London Underground is still in working order though.

A real badumdumtish, waa waa waaah, ayethangyew moment there from Fatale. Didn’t see that one coming. And it’s always nice when characters actually find funny things… funny. Doesn’t happen a lot, everyone’s just too cool for clown school.

I also rather enjoy superhero comics when the characters start to comment on the possible ridiculousness of their fictional comic book lives, as in this moment in Avengers: The Enemy Within without ever making the leap to working out what’s really going on. That’s the friend within. I need to talk about another comic that explores this called Soap Division as well. Maybe tomorrow.

So what are the rules here? You can say Grammy and MTV, but you can’t say YouTube, Facebook or Tumblr (Or Reddit, sorry – Readit, last issue of FF?) What’s the dividing line? Who makes the call?

The new Battlestar Galactica gives us time travel as big blasty guns. To hell with the space time continuum. Don’t let Brian Bendis see this comic, he’ll just nick it for X-Men.

Luther Strode chooses a more traditional kind of weapon, but it’s still not enough for his Lazarus Churchyardness. So what would be enough?

Okay, yes, that would do it. Basically finding a universe destroying device in a Christmas cracker. And then giving it to Nova. So what do you do when your universe is destroyed.

You move to another one! Where your news is read by a different presenter, there’s a different livery and everything looks at just one book, Earth 2.

Almost as if there may be another Earth 2 book on the way, to justify this kind of attention in the back of all the DCU titles…

Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London, who are launching the Image Collector exhibition, reappropriating the work of Roy Lichtenstein, tomorrow. Also, have you voted in the Bleeding Cool Fan Awards? Only a few days left…
