stinglikeabee: classic denny colt  (a finals crisis)
Seriously. WTF. [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily is suspended? (via [livejournal.com profile] schmevil here)

But, but... That community drew me back into buying comics! And I wanted to share the comics I've just found!

stinglikeabee: classic denny colt  (sad)
Let's get some things out of the way:

1) For those worried about Kate Spencer after Manhunter was canceled: she will be Gotham's new DA. I know. My heart just about skipped a beat when I heard that.

2) New Doom Patrol title written by Keith Giffen, with a 10pg co-feature of Metal Men added at the back of the book that is penciled by Kevin Maguire and written by JM DeMatteis. I know. I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

3) Blackest Night 0 will be DC's offering for Free Comic Book Day. Sadly, Hal Jordan isn't dressed up as Rainbow Brite on the cover. Geoff Johns is writing, and Doug Mahnke is on art duties *whistles*

4) Gotham City Sirens is a team up of Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn. Bad news: Dini says this Harley is not the Harley of the DCAU or her previous comic incarnation. It's not a fluffy Gotham Girls-esque title, as he intends to take it to darker places. For me, these characters aren't simple villains so I trust Dini. The news means my interest in the book hasn't wavered.

5) A lady went up at DC Nation panel to ask some questions. When mentioned she had them written down, it turns out her out-of-town boyfriend had asked her to ask the questions for him. We gave her a round of applause. Love: it makes you do nerdy things.

6) My question was whether we'd see Captain Boomerang II (Owen) and the new Suicide Squad soon. The answer was that we'll see half of them. Huh. Well, as long as we FINALLY see Owen meet Bart. Or am I jumping the gun in thinking that?

7) Green Lantern movie trailer: Yawn, it's Hal Jordan. *looks at watch* Oh, it's his origin story. *looks at screen* Damn, look at those cheekbones! You could cut glass on those corners. *sigh* I think I just lost interest in the GL movie. From the perspective of the company, I understand why the origin instead of something like Sinestro Corps War (please please please!) but I've already seen a GL origin story in New Frontier. I don't know, I guess I was just excited at the possibility of Guy, Kyle, and John when we're just getting more Hal-love. *mopes*

8) After the WW movie, I saw a kid with his Daddy, who had dressed up in a Wonder Woman homage. Shirtless (and ripped, too), with a red cape, golden lasso, and red boots to die for. I loved, loved his costume.

And finally, the WW movie:

They said it couldn't be done. Were they right? MAJOR SPOILERS )

tl;dr: An enjoyable, entertaining movie. It's heavy on awesome action sequences, which are not at all gratuitous or overly bloody but isn't for the little kids (rating is PG-13). If you are watching for Diana and the Amazons being kick-ass, and either don't care or don't know Steve Trevor then I would rate it an A.

Since I take umbrage at Steve Trevor's transformation into Nemesis-lite, though I think everything else is awesomeness, I'm giving it a B+.
