Blue Beetle 10 and 11

Blue Beetle (Volume 6) #10
Written by Keith Giffen and John Rogers
Art and Cover by Cully Hamner

Well, Blue Beetle and Brenda have been sucked away to the worlds of the new gods. I think they are on New Genesis and not Apokalips, which is cool we do not get to see New Genesis as often. This issue was still not as exiting as I thought it would be and I think it is because I am not a fan of Hamner’s art at all. I don’t know.

Alright! This was a much better issue than the last. The art is so much better and I am glad that this Rafael is the new regular artist! We still do not know about the scarab despite Blue Beetle trying to get that information out of Metron. Metron is a character that I am really interested in now. I love how he just flies around in a chair. Very cool. There were a lot of funny moments this issue. Especially this one comment Jaime makes about Lonar’s sentence structure. I enjoyed this issue quite a bit. Reccomended.

A Little Anti-Climactic

JSA Classified #22
Written by Walter Simonson

I must say that even though Hawkman was a long time member of the JSA and will be again in the near future, this was the most un-JSA issue of JSA Classified. There was not even a mention of the Justice Society in this issue. I am not complaing; just making an observation. This was a decent issue. Nothing really to write home about. Hawkman of course defeats Blackfire in the end and re-unites with Hawkgirl in the end. Their re-uniting after a year of being apart was a little anti-climactic and not nearly as emotional as one would think. In fact, it wasn’t emotional at all. Hawkgirl was a little mad that Hawkman did not let her know why he hadn’t returned to earth yet. I guess I can understand her point but I mean come on…he can’t just send her a letter he was across the freaking galaxy for gods sake.

Green Lantern Corps 7 and 8

Green Lantern Corps #7
Written by Keith Champagne
Art by Patrick Gleason and Prentis Rollins

This was a pretty cool issue. The idea of an undercover unit of the Green Lantern Corps is fascinating and of course anything that has to do with the Dominators has to be good. I hate those things so much that they really bring emotion into any story I read with them in it. This series is pretty violent and has some pretty provocative stuff in it. Especially when Guys says, I think my nipples just got hard. I laughed out loud at that.

Green Lantern Corps #8
Written by Keith Champagne
Art by Patrick Gleason and Prentis Rollins

This issue was really quite gross. Lots of blood and guts and people getting ripped apart. Not really a comic book for the kiddies (not that I am complaining). I liked this issue. I hope that Guy and the butterfly girl aren’t really dead, I am sure they are not. That can’t be right? I do hope that the villain gets his ass handed to him next issue. I really don’t like this evolved dominator guy. Champagne is a good writer and artist. A rare talent in comics. I hope that he stays around for a while and maybe get his own series to write.
