Hey Fandom! It’s me Aaron for A Comic Show’s NEW COMICS NOW and I’m totally geeking out to Green Lantern #20! But I talk about other comics this week, I swear!
First I tackle the Man of Action, Joe Casey, and review both his new book Bounce and Sex #3. The guy has a unique voice and I like seeing it on his own creations more than his DC/Marvel writing. It feels like he’s trying a Mark Millar type sex-and-drugs indy buzz book thing, time will tell if it works.
Marvel has Superior Spider-man and Inferior Deadpool. Otto and Wade together is as fun as you imagine it to be! I’m so ready for Superior Spider-month! Uncanny Avengers #8AU gives some Remender Havok in the Age of Ultron. Young Avengers #5 ended the first arc quite nicely; this book has bottled the magic you see from time to time with teen teams.
Batman Li’l Gotham #2 was freaking fun. This is a Harley, Ivy, Catwoman girl’s night out. Justice League #20 came out with a surprise guest star and the underdogs vs Despero. But really, you know I just want to talk Green Lantern! I loved Geoff Johns’ final issue epic and I apologize for sounding like a giddy little fanboy, but it filled me with fanjoy! Seriously, I’ve been hounding Johns to bring back G’nort for years. I even mentioned it was the one thing he didn’t do for me in my From Johns to Venditti video. Yup, G’nort’s in a couple panels! It’s not a spoiler, just a little aside, but it meant the world to me. Also, most anything else I could mention is a spoiler, every beat was bad ass. Kyle’s book was also very touching with the reunion of him and his deadbeat daddy and another reunion that I didn’t see coming.
Thanks for watching, and thanks Geoff Johns for giving me and Guy our dog back!
