kingrockwell: he's a sexy (Default)

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.

I haven't used this since the old S_D:

This is not Animal Man. This is an aberration of Animal Man.

he missed a year, involuntarily. That's all.

Maybe it'll turn out to all be a dream/

This about sums up my feelings on the subject.

It's a shame -- this is Conway's best comics writing, like, ever. But he doesn't know these characters at all, or what made them appealing. This was the wrong cast for the story he wanted to tell. If Conway was telling this story with different characters, or better still his own original characters, we could judge the story and the writing on its own merits. As it is, there's just a total cognitive disconnect.

This is pretty horrible, but I can't get past the fact that Buddy's costume is the same color as Starfire's skin. It's hilarious to me.

Well, Conway did say he thought of this story with a generic any superhero and they gave him Animal Man.

Well, Conway did say he thought of this story with a generic any superhero and they gave him Animal Man. Too bad he didn't do any research.

And now he missed the chance to be introduced to her girlfriend. Sad really.

Yup. Animal Man has never been characterized as someone who'd wind up like this.

This is from the non-canon Death Of book, right?

Because what the fuck is this shit?

Wait, he's known Kori twenty years? Did he meet her when she was five or something?

What's the point if the story can be applied to any ol' hero? You'd think he would have at least adapted it to Animal Man.

Pllleease tell me this is out of continuity, it seems like a flash forward.

Actually, that doesn't matter, Animal Man went through SO MUCH SHIT to be with his family always, there is no reason for this.

Okay, as a female high school girls' basketball player, what the hell kind of basketball are they playing? You do not put four girls on defense for one player. Morever, she's jumping for a layup, but there's no basket in sight. You don't take that step until you're about seven feet from the basket, you risk a sprained ankle or other injuries if you jump like that in the middle of the court. I am, however, gratified to see that Maxine wears spandex under her shorts, that's smart and what many of us do. Prevents chafing and accidentley exposing yourself.

As for the rest of this crap? Discontinuity for me.

Wait, are you serious? Because if so, I'm torn. On one hand, I'm tempted to sqee at a normal, lesbian relationship. On the other, are they seriously playing into the "all basketball players are lesbians" sterotype? I mean, I am, but the majority of my teammates are straight. Booo sterotypes.
