Thoughts on Wednesday’s Books

Batman/Superman #2 has a whole lot of Earth 2 goodness.

Justice League Dark #22

imageI could read a whole series of stories about John Constantine making a horrible Captain Marvel…. ahem…. Shazam. I’ve never read Marvelman… ahem… Miracle Man but that is all I thought of in Constantine #5

Newsarama has list of parallel universes they want to see added to the DC Multiverse. One of the earths is the original Earth-Two. A place where the JSA characters live in their original form. I’d like that. I’d love to see and Earth 2/Earth-Two crossover.
One earth I always wanted to see was a ’90s earth. I think Grant Morrison is doing something like that in Multiveristy. I’d love to see a Justice League comprised of Steel, Azrael, Artemis, Dark Flash (Walter West), Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner), hook-arm Aquaman, Green Arrow (Connor Hawke), Damage, Zauriel, Oracle, Tomorrow Woman, Aztek, and Bloodwynde in a Phantom Stranger like roll. 
What other earths would you like to see?

Thoughts on Wednesday’s Book

Just as fair warning there are a few spoilers if you have not read Earth 2 #13.

imageJames Robinson is doing a great job reworking and remixing characters in Earth 2. This issue introduces Captain Steel. He really pulls from all the past Steel characters when creating his story. One of my favorite notes in the story is that he makes a parallel between Captain Steel and Cyborg’s origins. It makes me excited for the inevitable crossover.

Hey, when did Kendra change her name to Shiera? Do you think we’ll see her link to the main earth’s Hawkman? Could we see a love that reaches across time streams?

Also the last page of the issue was shocking and awesome. It reminded me of (MAJOR SPOILERS) this article.

James Robinson will be missed on this book.

What did you think of your comics this week?

When I started this blog more than a year ago I had come across an episode of Alcatraz where a character was wearing a Wesley Dodds Sandman t-shirt. It was awesome and I took to the internet to find it. I couldn’t and it still can’t. But I have come across a couple of JSA related Ts. 
Batman (1, 2, 3)
Big Barda (1)
Black Adam (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Black Canary (1, 2)
Captain Marvel, Jr. (1)
Doctor Fate (1, 2)
Eclipso (1)
The Flash (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Green Lantern (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
Hawkman (1, 2)
Jade (1)
Mary Marvel (1, 2, 3)
Mister Miracle (1)
Power Girl (1)
Red Tornado (1)
Shazam (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17)
Superman (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Superman: Kingdom Come (1, 2, 3, 4)
Wonder Woman (1)
While I have found some awesome t-shirts like the Doctor Fate one from above I still wish I could find the Sandman T. My guess is they made it for the show but if anyone has a clue of where to buy it… let me know.

DC Comics is having a four-day sale on Justice League books to celebrate the upcoming release of Injustice: Gods Among Us video game. DC sales seem few and far between. Here are my thoughts on this one. 
JLA (1997-2006) #1-9I highly recommend these books penned by Grant Morrison. They are great Justice League stories filled with some perfect character moments. For JSA fans might want to check out issue #5 to see Damage the son of the golden age Atom botch his JLA try out.
Identity Crisis #1-7I really enjoyed the first half of this series but didn’t care for the end as much. Brad Meltzer sets up this story as a super-hero murder mystery but unless the reader has knowledge of 1960/70s comics and beyond it’s not a mystery the reader can solve (even when looking back on the full seven issues. The art by Rags Morales is gorgeous and Meltzer does give us some great moments. I love the super-hero crime scene he sets up. Former JSA members Hawkman and Black Canary are front and center in this story. The Justice Society, The Ray, Dr. Mid-Nite, and Sir Justin, The Shining Knightas get some great and sometimes pivital moments. 
Justice League of America (2006-2001) #1-7I had mixed feelings on Brad Meltzer’s take on the Justice League. I did really like his attempt to grow the character of Red Tornado and had mixed feelings on his use of Solomon Grundy. These issues include JSA members Black Canary, Red Tornado, and Hawkgirl. This also leads into a great crosssover with the Justice Society of America in that series.
Justice League (2011-)This is Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s introduction to the post-Flashpoint, New 52 DC Universe. This story shows how the main DC Universe dealt with the attack from Apokolips and it compliments the first issue of Earth 2 very nicely.
Injustice #1I read this first issue and it is great.
