Who'd Like A Cocktail? #73

A couple of days late due to having last weekend away, but what the heck - here's what I picked up:

  • Black Terror #8 - Black Terror finally finds the original American Crusader and ends up helping create a new one. Not a bad series, but still seems to be lurching from one fight to the next a little.
  • Blackest Night #7 - the Guardians' secret is revealed and Sinestro claims his position as the best and biggest Lantern in the Universe! Oh, crap.
  • Blackest Night: JSA #3 - Power Girl doesn't give up against the Black Lantern Superman and Mr Terrific comes up with a way of getting rid of the Black Lanterns en masse. Of course, it has to be a one time only deal, doesn't it . . .
  • Chronicles of Wormwood: The Last Battle #3 - you'd think the Antichrist having a rough time of it would be the right thing to happen, but you can't help feeling sorry for the poor bugger.
  • The Dark Tower: The Battle of Jericho Hill #4 - traitors revealed and friends die as the end of Gilead draws ever nearer.
  • Green Arrow #30 - well, so much for the Green Arrow / Black Canary title of this book. Still, new writer J.T. Krul works a good story into the Blackest Night event, and artist Diogenes Neves is such a huge improvement on Sienkiewicz. Hopefully this book will manage to claw it's way back from the last few months.
  • Justice Society of America #36 - another alternate future looking back tale, this time with the Nazi's in control. This should be good.
  • Project Superpowers: Chapter Two #7 - what seems like four thousand sub-plots are crammed into one issue here but it looks safe to say that Kid Terror's secret is going to come to light soon.
  • Teen Titans #80 - as one door opens, another closes. Just as Green Arrow starts to recover, Teen Titans continues its downward slide. The writing here is dreadful: Holocaust spends the whole issue saying how lovely and kind he is then flips in a split second? Wonder Girl and Beast Boy's supposed antagonism is clumsy at best and no-one else seems to do anything.
    • Co-feature Ravager - this, on the other hand, is still ticking along nicely with Ravager seeking revenge.
And what made me smile:

You might not get it if you haven't been reading Chronicles of Wormwood: The Last Battle but it made me laugh!
