If you’re looking for more weird DC sci-fi, this week's ELECTRIC WARRIORS 01 was a really good start to a 6 part mini series. In the future, after the Great Disater, but before the Utopia of the Legion of Super-Heroes, Earth is trying to reenter the larger galactic civilization. But the old  animosity between humans and animal uplifts remains strong, so when Earth must send a representative to partisapate in a a galactic gladiatorial battles used to settle armed conflicts and avoid war, Earth sends two representatives instead.

It’s written by Steve Orlando and I really dug it.

Gah: DC so no DRM-free download.
Sadly. Still a good value though.

Picked up Green Lantern 1 based almost entirely on the creative team. Morrison’s getting wild as he does, and Sharp is as good as ever drawing said weirdness. I dug it.

Lanterns of different scales and wavelengths are a super interesting idea. I hope it gets fully realized, and not forgotten by the next creative team that takes over.

Almost finished The Road by Cormac McCarthy.

Bleak, disturbing and very readable.

A lot of people dislike McCarthy's prose style and the way he does dialogue without quotations in this book. I disagree, I thought it incredible.

Chunky is way better then Zeal for my day to day comic reading imo, especially with syncing new comics via local server. It’s new version, I’m currently beta testing, is going to have all kinds of useful new tools for syncing with a my digital comic collection.

I don’t know if it’s changed, but when I was using ComicZeal I was having to physically plug my iPad into my pc every time to sync new releases.

Creators almost entirely. Writers far more so then artists.


 Only exception, The Legion of Super-Heroes. Though luckily, 80% of the time they’re writen by creators I like.

Anyone reading Heroes in Crisis? Because I kind of really really like it. Tom King remains fire.

And I think people comparing it unfavorably to Identity Crisis is really unfair.

I really like it as well. Really interesting concept! Wonder how far Tom will take things. His Mister Miracle is amazing as well.

Eh, ok? I don't see it. I really don't. Is it because the deaths? Not the first Crisis-event to have those...

Some people are annoyed at gratuitous deaths, in particular Wally West's because he was just brought back with much fanfare in Rebirth. Some people have more realistic complaints concerning the presentation of vulnerable people with mental health concerns being attacked after opening up to someone.

But really, most people on Twitter are angry at the notion that Harley Quinn could out fox 'The Trinity' as she did. And a character in story dared suggest she might be better then Batman.

As previously suggested, fill it with tribute strips and pin-ups.

'Whatever Happened to the Strontium Dog?'

The beauty of this is that we've already had it, and it was by John and Carlos.
It was fairly recent too, but I can't remember if it was in a prog or a special...
You arent thinking of the What if Wulf hadn’t died? one-off are you?

If we were to see more Stontium Dog, I’d like to see an entire Prog dedicated to different writers and artists doing apocryphal endings to the series, as a tribute. 'Whatever Happened to the Strontium Dog?' And then retire it.

Defoe / Walking Dead...would obviously require some inter-dimensional time travelling shenanigans, but may give TWD a new lease of life (excuse the pun!).

DeFoe/Marvel Zombies. Already has dimensional jumping built in, and intelligent zombies which DeFoe already deals with.

Judge Dredd / Savage Dragon, is my big one.

Four Dark Judges vs the Legion of Super-Heroes, is my second.

Honorable mention, Judge Dredd / Astro Boy.
