    So for all the shit I give Earth 2 about it just being yet another way the New 52 pisses on legacy, I've actually decided to sit down and read a few volumes.


    S'not bad.

    Yeah, while being no where near as good as the JSA was, it does end up being pretty entertaining, more so when Taylor takes over (bummed he's departing).

    What I love about the new Wonders is how vibrant and colorful their uniforms are, contrasting nicely with both the rather bland palate of the current New 52 (looking at YOU, Teen Titans) and

    So I finally get the Stephanie Brown Batgirl comics on Comixology and after the first 13 issues, I must say this is probably the most fun I've had reading anything Batgirl related. This is even better than Gail Simone's New 52 Batgirl run.

    Yeah, Steph Batgirl was great, so was Red Robin, another reason the reboot is a bummer, on top of the characters having deep rich histories and for the most part being better portrayed, you lost so many great titles. These were 2 of the best Bat-titles.


    Speaking of Bat-titles, don't know if this bodes poorly, but I tried to sell Arkham Manor 1+2 and Gotham Academy 1+2 on Ebay for $4 each pair, and no one even looked at them. I get no bids, but I've never seen no views.

    One of the best runs I read. Easily my favorite bat-comic. The stuff with her and Damian, while Dick was Batman, was priceless.

    Red Robin was also amazing. Was not a fan at first of any new Robin replacing Drake, but they did it in such a good way it worked so well.

    Sold my Supergirl comics, looking back Red Daughter was the only arc I cared to re-read, the Lobdellstruction just hurt the entire run, and the rest, while solid, just wasn't consistent enough. Either way, made $100 off the sale, with it, I got the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection, and Southern Bastards volume 1 (which some left over). Solid read, very intriguing set up, can't wait for volume 2.

    Bryan Q. Miller got so much hell for that run because there was STILL a loyal fan base to Cassandra Cain. Today, no one gives a damn about Cassandra Cain. Cameron Stewart is essentially doing his own variation of Miller's Batgirl, which is pretty fun but it goes to show you timing is every thing in comic books.

    Yeah Barbara is definitely channeling her inner Steph but for me, it's not working at all. Sudden character/mood changes just don't work with me unless it's Daredevil for some reason.

    I just bought Super Girl volumes 1-3 on Ebay for $18 and I should get it delivered today. Super Girl was one of the NEW 52s that I really enjoyed until all the fucked up crossovers with Superman and boy.

    Yeah, it really had a lot of enjoyable content in there, the crossovers just killed it for me and made me stop caring, Red Daughter was great, but couldn't salvage my interest.

    Since this is the help desk I was wondering if someone could say something extra stupid today? I'm in a foul ass mood and feel as though unnecessarily verbally abusing a relative stranger would somehow make me feel better. Help a brother out.

    If you want I could always shit talk Aquaman and/or make fish jokes? Maybe make mention of how it was always stupid to see Superman wear red underwear over his tights (no seriously, how stupid do you have to be to wear underwear on the outside of your tights)? Though I don't think anyone really wants to see the return of Trollwolf (which by the way was a stupid name though admittedly it was better than Butters ).

    Thanks for trying Lony... Turns out it's not as much fun when I have to ask for it.

    "Why?" You may ask. Because it's not a drawing, it's cosplay.

    Ahem. You sir, came to the right place. Since Identity Crisis was erased thanks to the new 52, I think it's time to re-adjust that score card. My main man, Deathstroke did NOT get punk'd by Ollie (gawd that pissed me off). Strangely enough, Ollie doesn't have any facial hair and feels more like Conor but called Oliver.

    So I was all happy. Singing "Someone loves die fledermaus..." over and over again. Then freaking DC reboots Deathstroke AGAIN...and this no white hair and has both eyes intact. WTF?!?!?

    Still have a few things going for me: Rulk! *makes the devil sign with this hand*

    "Superior" Iron Man has a Fink quality about it, doesn't it?

    How's them apples?

    My local comic book/book store really came through for me this week in their used book section. Here is a list of books I picked up and the price.

    Invincible volumes 4 and 5 - $7.99 each
    Robin: Tragedy and Triumph - $6.99
    Batman and the Monster Men - $7.99
    Batman and the Mad Monk - $7.99
    Nightwing New 52 vol 3 - $8.99
    Aquaman New 52 volumes 1 and 2 - $7.99 each
    Aquaman New 52 volume 4 - $8.99
    Batman Broken City - $12.99
    Batman Through the Looking Glass - $12.99
    Batman Gotham County Line - $8.99

    The two $12.99 books are hardcovers. The rest were, of course paperbacks.

    Is this the comics thread now? Because I'm boycotting comics until Powergirl gets her boob window outfit back.

    Yes, it is one of a few comic threads in The Nerdery which is moderated by two female posters and while I appreciate your attempt at humor, you'll find that you are behind the 8 ball as Power Girl was given her boob window back in World's Finest a few months ago though the title is being cancelled.

    Time to jump back on the comic train!

    So Axis is finally over, and somehow nobody died. But of course, literally the only person I was worried about in the whole thing, the Wasp, is the only person who's fate is left vague. We see where Havok ends up, but nothing on the Wasp. And she's not in any solicits that I've seen. Why's Marvel gotta keep taking my favorite Avenger away?

    Aquaman volume 1 was pretty good but volume 2 is soooooooo much better so far. I'm only halfway through it but this is looking like a pretty good lead in to Throne of Atlantis.
