What Looks Good?

Brightest Day #8 -- After the revelations of last issue, the resurrected are driven forth on their missions: Deadman is teleported away, along with Dove, by the White Lantern, Martian Manhunter learns what happened to Miss Martian, and the Hawks learn more about Hawkworld.  Strong issue featuring lots of Hawkman and Hawkgirl, and a lot of mythos for Hawkworld which raises a lot of questions regarding the history of both Earth and Thanagar, which is begging for more exposure over at Being Carter Hall.  This series has been a real treat for me.

Tiny Titans #31 -- It's the All-Super Issue!  At the Fortress of Solitude, Superboy and Supergirl are gathered for Match's birthday, but uninvited guests keep popping up.  Featuring the Legion of Superheroes, the Brainiac Club, and the Phantom Zone criminals (!), this one has laughs the entire way through.

Image United #3 -- The world is going to hell, quite literall, as Fortress, the Youngblood, the Dragon, ShadowHawk, and others try to stem the tide of evil.  We finally get the third issue of the epic crossover, and we get... not much, really.  Mostly a running battle with lots of characters I don't recognize who are not named; this is mostly for those who read all of the old Image titles to pick out who is who.  The one nice piece for me was seeing Vendetta in her battlesuit out there.  Why the hell Vendetta would help Chapel and his army of lunatics is beyond me, but hey!  Vendetta!  The art still looks good, at least.  Things look like they should pick up next issue, hopefully.

The Last Phantom #1 -- Ugh.  Check out my critique, and avoid this book.

Darkwing Duck #3 -- Gone missin'.  Appropriate, as #2 is also on backorder for me.

Re-Read Pile: Brightest Day.

The Pick Of The Pile is Brightest Day.  Not the strongest week ever, unfortunately.
