Surely Batman never cries.

I love this cartoon, it reminds me of Batman The Animated Series. The one that brought about the creation of Harley Quinn. (Love her.) This week Batman isn't really teaming up with anyone cause he got toxic puke in his face and as a result is ill and has purple bumps (pimples?) all over him. Aquaman and the Atom shrink and go on an adventure in Batman's internals. I'd just like to interject that this show has increased my desire to one day own the Batmobile. It's also a voice activated submarine! How awesome is that?!??! I'll go back on topic and end with the following.
Aqua Man is muscle bound asshole......and I love him.

p.s. Next week Batman teams up with Green Lantern. HELL YES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Smallville Thoughts

Lana Lang please go away. I heard that you had left the series which neutralized the fact that Lex was also leaving. Lex is awesome. You are a whiny self-centered annoying little twit. Stop ruining this season.

p.s. You're not Chun Li either. Much too skinny.

Millar + McNiven = Pure Awesomeness

I read too many comic books, waaayyyyy to many, I'm actually looking to weed a few out. Here's a brief list of my monthly books:
  • X-Factor
  • Green Lantern
  • Green Lantern Corps
  • Runaways
  • Avengers Initiative
  • New Avengers
  • Mighty Avengers
  • X-Men Legacy
  • Young X-Men
  • New Warriors
  • Deadpool
  • Teen Titans
  • JLA
  • Terror Titans
  • Ultimate X-Men
  • Astonishing X-Men
  • Fables
  • Jack of Fables
  • Titans
  • Uncanny X-Men
  • Star Wars Legacy
  • Supernatural (Whenever it's out.)
  • Dresden Files
  • Kick Ass
  • X-Men - Kingbreaker (Finally some acknowledgement of Polaris & Havok abandoned in space.)
  • Young Avengers
  • Spider-Woman
  • Dark Avengers
There's also several crossovers (for lack of a better word) that the wonderful guys at the comic store hold all related for me.

  • Final Crisis
  • War of Kings
  • Dark Reign
As you can see there is way too damn many books so I'm trying to cut them back to a more reasonable amount. I did away with New Exiles months ago, Umbrella Academy was just removed from the list this week but I'm still looking to remove a couple more. New Warriors I'm looking at you. Anywhoo my plans to remove more books was evilly foiled when I attended the last comic chat and Mark Millar the blame rests solely on your shoulders.

I kept hearing how great the Old Man Logan run was, even read the first issue and liked it but didn't want to add another comic to my pull. The owner of the store was reading the most recent issue and after seeing the expressions on his face I was sold. Picture a 5 yr old getting that pony that she's asking for, only this was a grown man who was just reading a comic. My normal steely resolve weakened I picked up that issue and the 2 issues before it. Read it first thing when I got home and OH MY FREAKING GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*Spoilers Ahead*

Amazing comic!!!! I've been loving the the Green Lantern but Old Man blew it out of the water. The whole time I'm reading I'm trying to imagine what could be so horrible that it'd cause Wolverine to refuse to fight again. Damn Mark!! You totally topped all the horrible scenarios I had running though my head. Maybe I'm just being a girl but I teared up a little. Seriously. I still can't get the picture Wolverine holding the dead Jubilee and the horrorific corpses of the other X-Men out of my head. I can't think of a more horrible thing to do to a person, it's devastating. I know that it's going to one of the comic moments that stick in my mind forever. Kind of like when Colossus injected himself with the Legacy Virus when Illyana died. Amazing. Even more amazing is that they (Mark Millar & Steve McNiven) were able to top it.
Can you say Venom T-Rex? I knew you could.

I cannot wait til the next issue. Well done sir, well done.
