Who'd Like A Cocktail #57

Another shed-load of comics this week, including mucho Garth Ennis!
  • The Boys #35 - we get the origin of Mother's Milk, a story which is just a bit . . . well . . . eeewwwww, really.
  • Chronicles of Wormwood: The Last Battle #1 - another round of debauchery and devilry begins in fine form.
  • Crossed #7 - this series keeps delivering shock after shock - Patrick's words to his mother? Jeez, that caught me by surprise.
  • Doom Patrol #3 - man, Steve Dayton's messed in the head!
    • Metal Men co-feature - veedle deedle veedle deedle veedle deedle veedle deedle! Heh!
  • Final Crisis Aftermath: Run! #6 - the Human Flame stops running and takes on the JLA. C'mon, who did you think was going to win?! I've really enjoyed this series and can't wait for Sturges and Williams II to start on JSA All-Stars.
  • Justice League: Cry For Justice #4 - five, Ollie? You had to wait until five villains had been tortured before speaking up? And even after that you still hung round with them? You're not the Green Arrow I know and like, Ollie. Despite that, this series (finally!) seems to be gathering some steam.
  • Magog #2 - Magog's a "sucker for freckles" - who'd'a thought it?
  • Project Superpowers: Meet The Bad Guys #2 - deathly white face? Check. Sideburns? Check. Thick black eye make-up? Check. Rides a bike? Check. Bad-ass attitude? Check. Look everyone: Lobo's in Project Superpowers as the Revolutionary!
  • Red Tornado #2 - another good, solid issue though that cover is waaaaaaaay misleading!
  • Strange Adventures #8 - everything changes but remains the same? That's the big finale? Not as satisfying as I'd hoped but still an enjoyable series overall.
And what made me smile this week:

Who said inter-company cross overs were dead!? That's the Human Flame doing his best jolly green giant impression in Final Crisis Aftermath: Run! #6
