Who'd Like A Cocktail? #39

A bumper haul this week:

  • Battlefields: The Tankies #2 - if it weren't for my self-imposed family friendly position on this blog, there's several scenes I'd love to quote from this issue!
  • Crossed #5 - and the same goes for this one!
  • Final Crisis Aftermath: Ink #1 - much as enjoyed Sturges and Willingham's Final Crisis Aftermath: Run, I wonder if DC saved the best till last? This was really good.
  • Green Lantern #41 - Agent Orange gets an origin story of sorts.
  • Justice League of America #33 - with the news that Dwayne McDuffie's been fired from writing this title, I have to wonder what's going to happen to it. Is Geoff Johns going to take over as has been rumoured?
  • Justice Society of America #27 - and talking of Johns, Jerry Ordway's fill-in story's not bad at all.
  • The Last Days of Animal Man #1 - picked up on the off chance it might be good and, for a first issue, it's not bad.
  • The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century: 1910 - wooyay! Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill! Damn this is good!
  • The Stand: American Nightmares #3 - the trip through the Lincoln Tunnel - one of the best scenes in the original book - and they managed to nail it here!
  • Teen Titans #71 - poor old Ravager's out on her own but at least she's got the back-up feature next month.
  • Trinity #52 - and that's it, it's all over and, for me, was a better Crisis than that Final one.
And what made me smile this week:
An Alan Moore one-liner from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century: 1910
