Who'd Like A Cocktail? #74

I read that line above in The Boys and thought "well that's just perfect for this week's low title count Cocktail post."

  • The Boys #40 - poor old Wee Hughie's looking to get on the wrong end of a paranoid Butcher who's so used to betrayal and double dealing that he can't contemplate taking something at face value.
  • Crossed #9 - the series finishes in the only way it could, I guess, open ended. Even though the forthcoming sequel (more correctly a separate story written in the same fictional world) won't be written by Ennis, I'll be picking that up as well.
  • Justice League: Cry For Justice #7 - well, that's that over with then. Not entirely terrible following it's very shaky start but still less than I was expecting from James Robinson. And come on, killing Lian Harper? Jeez, that was low.
  • JSA All-Stars #4 - Johnny Sorrow manages to snatch Stargirl and drop her in the Subtle Realms, betraying the rest of the Society at the same time.
    • Co-feature Liberty Belle & Hourman - the husband/wife hero/villain teams are still trying to find that damn book; this isn't bad but feels like it is starting to drag a little, a result of the slightly cramped page count in which to tell the story - difficult to get things going in such a short time, but still fun nonetheless.
  • Punisher Max: Butterfly one shot - hmmm, okay, this was nicely told up to the end where it didn't seem to do anything. Maybe that was the point?
And what made me smile:

Stool Shadow? *snort* Only Garth Ennis would call a hero Stool Shadow . . .
