Last Update Today, I Promise...Plus, Reviews 

Via Irresponsible Pictures comes news of several new titles from Digital Manga: Tenka Musou a ninja/samurai comic, and thus of no interest to me; Cafe Kichijouji de which looks like it might be a nice little absurd comedy, and I likes me the absurd comedies; and Seiyou Kotto Yougashiten about a gay pastry chef, and frankly that's all I need to know about it to want to check it out. The name apparently translates to something like "Antique Pastry Shop" and what I gather from this fan site makes me more curious to read about it.

I've also added Sam Costello's Little Terrors to my side-bar. It's a horror blog from a guy who knows his stuff. Corey, you need to check this one out.

Oh, and I suppose I may as well do some reviews of last weeks books.

Losers #16: The storyline that reveals what, exactly, set the Losers up on their current path begins and my first thought is: Max is really Claude Rains? No, really, it's really quite good, though I am a bit suspicious of the naivete of the Losers regarding the situation they're in.

Green Lantern #181: I'm going to quote Pete for this one: "Who writes this shit? They did all this just to bring back that ass-hole?"

New Frontier #6: Would I be a terrible person if I said that the long wait for this series to conclude made care less about it finally ending. It's a nice series, and it's beautifully drawn, but Cooke is not as strong a writer as he would like to think he is. And while this book is a nice homage to the era, there's not enough meat to the story to really make it stand out as a superior work.

Outsiders #16: It's always nice to see Jurgens work. He's very suited to super-heroic stories. And despite many others complaints, I think Winick's doing an excellent job on this book. And despite some of the fannish complaints, I didn't find the big "event" of the book to be out of character for anyone involved. The last time Nightwing was portrayed as a decent human being George Perez was still drawing him regularly. And there's nothing wrong with that...I sort of feel that Dick Grayson should be kind of an asshat.

Caper #12: Oh, thank God, it's finally over. The first two storylines were great...this one, really really dumb.

Wonder Woman #208: It's more of Rucka's mix of talky politics and mythic action this issue. It definitely has the feel of an "in-between" issue. Not the beginning of the story, but not the end either. And I really like Rucka's take on the Gods.

Adam Strange #1: I like the idea, though it's done to death at times, that outside of the super-hero community nobody believes Adam's stories. Diggle's writing is up to his usual par here, and Ferry's art is simply stunning, especially with Dave McCaig's colors. This is probably one of the best looking books I've seen come out in some time.

Batman #632: Definitely felt like a "getting the pieces into place" issue. Almost like Willingham didn't really have anything planned, so he just threw in a fight scene and got all the players set up for the next issue.

JLA #106: I almost feel like I owe Byrne and Claremont an apology. This is truly the worst JLA story I've ever read, in my life.

That's almost, because as bad as Austen's tripe was, it was only just slightly worse than the garbage Byrne and Claremont did...Hell, between the three of them, they made O'Neil's story look good.
