    Default 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...

    Makes sense a con artist like Mudd wouldn't go along with the Prophets.

    Frank Cho, that rascal!
    PLEASE CONSIDER putting SilverSmurfer on ignore due to his factually incorrect and hysteric claim that "Uber" is a "historically revisionist nazi fantasy," and that we should boycott Avatar for it.
    Thank you for your Considerations.

    - The Nova scene is something that could have come out of the original book, except for the earrings and the overt scatalogical humor, and Marv Wolfman was deliberately aping Spider-Man when he created Nova. So, the book that's supposed to be one of the flagships of Marvel Now is an imitation of an imitation, with a reference to a twenty-eight-year-old movie. This will work out great.

    - She could be Mudd's wife. What interests me is that the new Trek continuity apparently already has the Federation having made first contact with the Bajorans. It's not hugely surprising, given that the reboot film mentioned a Cardassian drink, but still. And the earring being on the left ear was used in DS9 to signify worshippers of the Pah Wraiths, aka the bad versions of the wormhole aliens/Prophets; it would be interesting if it were established to mean anyone who wasn't down with Prophet-worship.

    - Why doesn't Cho simply do straight up porn, again?

    And I'd suggest you get off your fucking high horse. No one has besmirched the actual quality of Cho's work (which almost everyone agrees is astounding) and, since we're playing this game, unless you can show proof in my post that Cho is who I'm referencing, I gladly return your STFU with tidings.

    Heh. I was totally going to point out the same thing.
