Martians, Midnighters And Cats! Oh My!

Just read this short interview with Peter Milligan, writer of Stormwatch over at CBR and in it they mention news that I'd obviously missed:
"solicitations for future issues indicate that J'onn J'onzz is set to quit Stormwatch"
Hadn't realised that, but I hope J'onn ends up somewhere instead of just vanishing into the ether.

The interview also mentioned the issue of Red Lanterns that Milligan used as a cross-over with Stormwatch which I didn't pick up, thus meaning I have missed something splendid:

Click for the full size madness
I'd like to think we live in a world where I don't need to say this but evidence would show otherwise: do NOT punch cats, people! This is a comic book, not an instruction manual.

You Fine Men Of War

And the DC news keeps rolling in, this time focusing on their fighting titles . . . sort of:

Stormwatch is a dangerous super human strike force whose existence is kept secret from the world. Jack Hawksmoor and the rest of the crew look to recruit two of the deadliest super humans on the planet: Midnighter and Apollo. And if they say no? Perhaps the Martian Manhunter can change their minds. Featuring a surprising new roster, STORMWATCH #1 will be written by the critically-acclaimed Paul Cornell (Superman: The Black Ring, “Dr. Who”) and illustrated by Miguel Sepulveda.
Paul Cornell, the Martian Manhunter, Midnighter and Apollo? I am definitely buying this one.

Friday Night Fights - Say Goodnight, Adolf

It's Friday and that means fightin' time according to Spacebooger. I missed last week's carnage due to being away with a bunch of fellow writers but I'm back and, after scouring my comics for a worthy fight, remembered this little beauty.

Forced to go back in time to kill Adolf Hitler, Midnighter ends up in the German trenches in World War I, just in time for an attack by the Franch infantry. He doesn't want to hurt them but . . .

Grabbing a grenade from a dead German, Midnighter hurls it towards a Frenchman with a machine gun:

Which ends as you'd expect:

Trouble is, he ends up being congratulated by . . .

Adolf Hitler himself!

Thing is, Hitler's admiration is short lived as Midnighter grabs him and . . .

Let's face it - who wouldn't knee Hitler in the balls given the chance?

Now head over to Spacebooger by clicking on the picture below, check out the other fights and vote for your favourite!

Midnighter becomes the darling of the civilised world in Midnighter #2 cover datedFebruary 2007, written by Garth Ennis, with art by Chris Sprouse and Karl Story.
