Hmmm. I read "The Phantom" and Spiderman in the Sunday Comics. Does that count?

Er... not quite.

Oh, and did anyone get a look at Blackest Night and Green Lantern this week? Atrocius and Larfreeze need their own sitcom. Now.

And and Matt Fraction's Invincible Iron Man is just plain awesomeness.

GL #48 & Blackest Night #5 were so [tornado fang]ing awesome. 

So was Superman: Secret Origins #3.  Man, Geoff Johns is the best.

The man's in my personal pantheon, along with Weird Al and the Magical Platypus. And how could I forget Superman: Secret Origin? My pal Gauntlet doesn't care for the post-Infinite Crisis Superman mythos, but they finally set it right in my opinion.

Yeah, if it's the same Gauntlet as the one here, I already let him know that he should check out Secret Origins.

And yeah, Larfleeze is [tornado fang]ing awesome.



And I really really love this poster.

I need that poster on my wall.

And good luck convincing G to pick up the series, he's a huge continuity buff and the two of us of spent countless hours debating in on instant messenger.  ;)

Agreed. If not for restoring the Legion and Mon-El to the Superman mythos.

What I like is how it combines a lot of the elements of Superman's origin in various forms, from the Animated Series to Smallville and so on.

Don't forget the movie, I especially liked that scene where Supes saves Lois for the first time.

I didnt like Smallville that much. It was cool at first, but then they started introducing characters he meets as Superman.

Sure, technically its an AU Clark, but still. I clearly remember the early promos for the show having a few bits in rapid succession, and then teasing us with the silhouette of superman.

The mini itself doesn't start until January, but there's a "Seige" related one-shot starring the Cabal that comes out next month.

SO since PB and Quickie are doing that Lantern thin, Ive decided to read up on the events leading up to Blackest night. (specially since Flame's tken the position of Black Lantern).

And so far, I have to admit, I have found my favorite scene in the whole thing. Im sure.

Green Lantern: Rebirth was easily one of the best comics I've read in a long time.  The Absolute Edition of it comes out next year, and I really want it, even though I already own all the issues.  We'll see what extra stuff comes with it.

Also, as for favorite scenes in all of GL, from Rebirth to Blackest Night...

He was, he was, no one's debating that, but in the end, he was pretty much doing it so he could find his death. He even THANKED the Green lanterns for killing him. And then, when he had finally found the nothingness he had done it all for, he gets revived by the manhunters who insist on having him as their master.

maybe im just too empathetic or somethin.
