"[This book is] trying to point out that life doesn't end at grim and gritty. A little fun never hurt anyone." - Keith Giffen

A bit more from issue 1...



"Well, it’s Giffen-DeMatteis-Maguire doing what we do: high adventure through a lens of what I like to call neo-vaudeville. Lee and Kirby by way of Woody Allen and Monty Python, all of it rooted, first and foremost, in the characters. That said, this is a very different group—there’s no Beetle or Booster in sight—so they’ll dictate the tone as much as we do." - J.M. DeMatteis

"Absolutely. Why mess with what works? Now I know there are certain, quite vocal, folks out there who want their comics grim and gritty and heart attack serious and bleak and wretched but those aren't the readers we're shooting for." - Keith Giffen

Arrggggh.... I'm doing it again, I can feel myself getting tetchy and irritable and I haven't even started reading my comic stash for this week... and that pisses me off at myself, Lord only knows what it does to others..

So, as is my wont in such cases, I will make a conscious effort to accentuate the positive... and how better to start that than with the comic book equivalent of "Stupid Pet Tricks"?

It's Legion of Super-Heroes try-out time! )

So Keith Giffen's invisible series Threshold limps to a close this week with even less fanfare than the title itself ever got, which was slim to none. The issue dispatches the fates of the Hunted, a bunch of characters never really heard of before and unlikely ever to be heard from again, not even the "dark and gritty" update of Captain Carrot. But happening in the background is one little development of note. Two pages.

We've been cancelled! )

And thus another of the DCnU's big, dramatic plot twists peters out, like letting the helium out of a balloon. The $64 question is, where will this beloved character fetch up next? Someplace better, I hope. JLA, perhaps?

The break-out character from Geoff Johns' Green Lantern run explodes into avaricious action in his own brand-new series!



'Larfleeze is a chance to do a fun comic book, surrounding him with new characters, new villains, new ideas, new sections of the galaxy. New, new, new, new, new, new, new.

'I guarantee six major, new, cosmic villains in the first 12 issues, as well as alien worlds and all kinds of craziness with Larfleeze.'

'And fun. No deep thoughts, no misdirection or trickery. You just come in, there's Larfleeze and look! He's having an adventure, with a bunch of exciting new characters and concepts. At the end of the book, you say, "Yeah, I had a good time reading that book."'

Back again with four pages from the hot off the press Legion of Super-Heroes #18, part 2 of the return of the Fatal Five. You'll recall that last issue in part 1, things fell apart rather spectacularly. We spent all our time with two teams of Legionnaires last issue; this time we check in with the rest, and things aren't looking any better on the home front.

There's nothing we can do! )

So that's four out of five accounted for: Tharok, Persuader, Validus and the one in the next ish teaser. Will it be faithful old Mano, or someone new in the fifth slot?
