Mister Miracle #12 by Tom King and Mitch Gerards. "...The fourth world... That is my world. The world I see when I close my eyes... And try to escape." Not sure how to put it on paper without writing a blog, but... Amazing book. Loved it. The best and most interesting one I've read since Azzarello and Chiang's Wonder Woman run. Wouldn't surprise me if it in time (for me) is up there with it, Dark Knight Returns as well as Allstar Superman. Simply put: Biblical.

Film & TV / Re: Grant Morrison developing The Invisibles for TV

Interesting news. I really wonder how it'll translate into TV. Could be really cool I think.

Hope it does well enough to warrant other stuff as well. I really want to see a 100Bullets show or movie. Also Unfollow.

Regarding Invisibles. I think I really like it that it exists, that someone got away with writing it, more than I like the book itself. For every story arc in it which I like there's one or two which I don't care much for. But it's a book I think people should give a go. If not it, Flex Mentallo or Filth.

Otherwise I tend to really like Morrison. Especially Doom Patrol, Flex Mentallo, Superman, Batman, Final Crisis and Multiversity. What I like most about them is that they manage to take something which on first glance looks ridiculus (for example flying people in tight pyamases) and manages to it to feel powerful and inspirational. His Superman being at such peace with things but still can tell someone on the brink of hurting themselves that they're stronger than they know. Such a lovely thing :)

Which order? I am sure you are aware that in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, he picks up the outfit in which he starts Fistful.

Cool. I wasn't aware of that. Gonna watch it and Fistful back to back when I visit my mum and dad this christmas :)

I've only read a bit Lantern here and there. O Neils and Adams Green arrow/lantern team up most notably.

I look forward to Grant's take on the two  :)

although not as weird as I'd have liked. Best bit was the Green Phlegm Lantern, the cop who's a virus, shitting criminals into submission.

But isn't that a bit weird?  ;)

Btw. Is yellow still a problem for green lanterns?

Btw. Apperantly Burnham (who illustarted INC) is the one doing the recap pages. I ordered the book as soon as I saw that.

Got it for 55 (I don't live in the uk). Which I think is more than fair :)

The Green Lantern #1 by Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp. My first impression, colourful and fun. Loads of lovely weird stuff which Sharp does a bang up job illustrating. I think Grant and Liam has a winner in their hands. Very much looking forward to what's next :)

Almost finished The Road by Cormac McCarthy.

Bleak, disturbing and very readable.

Love that one. And since it's being mentioned, I feel a need to read it again soon. Thank you ;)

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.

Some of it sounds resonable. I don't know. To me it's just comics. There's probably some magic way out (time travel ding ding ding) or some "all is not as it seems". If not, then DC will probably reset things in a couple of months time. Bit like with Damian or Wonder Woman becoming the god of war.

-- a character in story dared suggest she might be better then Batman.

THAY DAAAAARE!? Haha no. I read it. Thought it was funny. I really like the Harley in this story. A good mix of fun, sad and a bit eerie.

Got some info on another forum.

Not that heavy, but not light. Also 11 pages of 52 #30, 4 pages of 52 #47. A bit of Tim in there, 52 pages ends with Bruce exiting a cave. Also includes good recaps for both Final Crisis (could imagine some people needing that) as well as the demon stuff (Batman marrying Thalia or what not).

Will probably order it soon :)

Books & Comics / Batman by Grant Morrison omnibus vol 1 question
« on: 04 November, 2018, 08:43:46 pm »
I have a question regarding the Grant Morrison Batman omnibus.

How much of the 52-issues are included? When Bruce is in the cave, is the bits with Wonder Woman meeting some floating head of light included as well? (I remember something like that happening in 52) or are just a couple of pages/panels from 52 included?

Just a nit picky question. It being a bit jumbled is part of it's charm  :)

More importantly. How's the binding and such? Does it read ok? It's not as heavy as for example Morrison's Doom patrol no?

Perhaps this has been discussed before, but Brink's use of blacked out cursing. Anyone else thinking there's something more to it than just blacking out curse words? I don't remember ane of the language in book one or two being blacked out like that, and also not using words alluding to "f*ck" and such.

What if said words are actually something else, and no one is realising it? A bit like no one reactign that surprised when people start puking after hearing phale cronozon.

Really like Brink and Dredd at the moment. Both are brilliant thrillers!

Brink book one and two. Brilliant. Read the first one digital first, then got it and two as tpb. Colours really pop on paper. Some of the best colours I've seen. They're beautiful. Also really good sci fi thrillers.

Also finished reading Dark Justice: Dominion. A great horror story with harrowing visuals. Dark judges with a bit of zombie and aliens flavour. While I didn't mind the dark justice being quite funny during the 90s, I'm happy they're back feeling menacing again :)

Finished reading the master edition of From Hell #1. Basically From Hell, but with added colours by Cambell. Didn't think I'd like it as much as I did. Looked off in previews, but really good on paper. I find it to be a very interesting take on of my absolute favorite stories.

Anyone else who's also read it? Thoughts?

That's out now? I might have to nip down to my local shop and pick up a copy. It looks like an excellent job.

I was in that there London the weekend before last and asked for it in Orbital, and was amused to find that none of the staff knew anything about it.

It's worth a look. Funny. My LCBS owner was surprised as well by it.

Another surprising thing is that it doesn't seem to be any reviews for it. Wonder if it's slipped under peoples radar.

What I like most about it is the way Cambell has given some of the black lines colours instead of just the whites. Also interesting to see some of the colours having a similar feel to them as his inks. "Messy" or what to call it (meant in the best way possible). Really fits the book. Gives it a painted feel.
