Which one bothers me more, that Ellen's calling Buddy on shit she'd have learned to deal with years ago, or that the shit she's calling on him has never been one of Buddy's things since, well, fucking ever?
It gets worse!
(sorry this scan is bigger and still looks shitty. this is why i don't like using my own scans)
I'm-- I'm really beside myself with anger right now. I found it jarring to find Buddy fighting supervillains to begin with when this mini started, but to completely change his role as a superhero only to set up fucking this is infuriating! Family always came first for Buddy! And Maxine, dammit, Maxine was supposed to grow up to be Animal Girl. :( :( :(
There's more bullshit with Cliff who's grown up to be a workaholic lawyer to be like his dad, but Conway essentially bulldozes all of Buddy' relationships with his family (which is what made him worth reading to begin with!) so he can give us this:
Fuck this book. You can see what I'm guessing might be Prismatik coming in on the last panel to beat them up, well let her have him! I don't give a shit anymore, I'd rather save the money for food.
And here I was gonna come on here to fanwank about the League of Titans (Dick's Nightwing again, and hardly looks the mid-to-late forties he should be, discuss) and the really poor color consistency (Clark' eyes can decide if they're blue or green (i almost wanted to think it was Kon, since it would've been fun if he got Lex's eyes, but no dice), Kory's eyes being yellow, and Cliff going blond sometime in the skipped fifteen years), but the book had to come and along and distract me, by sucking.
I'll give it one thing, Chris Batista brings it pretty fierce, but even he can't save this sinking ship.
