A few days ago I posted from issue #622, which was an Invaders-heavy issue. Today I will post from the latest issue, which is much darker.

So for my $2.99 this is just about the best thing Marvel has going. I thought I'd post some scenes from last month's issue— #623 came out this week, but I am still putting my thoughts together about that.

Anyway, this the book that they turned Captain America into when they killed him off in Fear Itself. Basically, it charts the coming of age of Bucky Barnes in self contained single issue installments. Ed Brubaker and Marc Andreyko on words, Chris Samnee on pencils, Bettie Breitweiser on colors, Namor McKenzie on burn.

So seriously, what the hell has DC been doing with Two-Face for the past year and a half?

I ask because I wanted to review the final part of the first-ever Two-Face solo story wrapped up in Batman: Streets of Gotham, which came out today. But I realized that such a review was impossible without looking into the events that brought the character to this point, as written by Tony Daniel, Judd Winick, and Marc Andreyko, neither of whom seemed to read the other's stories and utterly ignored continuity when it came to Two-Face.

Has anyone else noticed this? Has anyone else been confused?

Let's take a blow-by-blow look at Two-Face over the past year and a half, and you let me know if this makes any sense, or if I'm missing out on some crucial detail somewhere along the way. Please, seriously, help me out here. I feel like no one else is even noticing these glaring inconsistencies.

And while I'm at it, I'd like to rant a bit about Andreyko's Manhunter co-feature from Streets of Gotham. Hope you don't mind.




How Harvey's been (mis?)used ever since the events of BATMAN R.I.P.... )

...

What?!

Is this all due to some editorial clusterfuck, ala Countdown, Death of the New Gods, and Final Crisis all contradicting one another in various ways? And unlike that clusterfuck, no one else seems to be noticing THIS clusterfuck!

And then there's the actual Two-Face solo story by Ivan Brandon, the one that just today wrapped up in Streets of Gotham. That one seems to be another clusterfuck for some reason, not to mention the story itself is frustrating in its own ways. But I'll address all that in my next post, when I tackle Two-Face: The Long Way Down heads-on. Hopefully no one else will post scans of it in the meantime.

(I have never done a txt post this large so if i am doing it wrong please let me know and i will fix it :)

Hey Guys, like most of us, i like using my icons based on what I post. ie Asking a question, i use "The Questions" Postuing Information, i use "Oracle," something snide or 'come and get me-ish' i use one of the Manhunter pics i have....

now, since SOMEBODY posted a horrifying picture of a Spider that was supposed to be "cute" (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE)i have been looking for an immage that shows horror "A character being horrified," it can be genuinely horrifying, or funny horrifying... (there was one i found a while back with Atlee that was pretty funny, she was watching a horror movie with PG, but cant for the life of me find it...) others are cool too, and hey, if you have any other types of emotions that would be cool too.

Angry would be cool too (unless it is a pretty decent pic, trying to stay away from "Lantern" pics, unless, like i said, i t is really good.)

thanks guys.

oh and for legality!



Damon and Todd... i miss them... :( )

I just sent Didio a message asking "Why don't you do something like Countdown to Mystery, which published two normal-length stories together, with Manhunter and Blue Beetle? This would allow the writers to write 22-page stories, as opposed to 8-page ones. While both series struggled with low sales, if the audiences of both books bought the same title the sales would probably be higher."

If such a series were to be published, do you think it would work?

And, for legality...

Once Rucka's run was over, there was, mostly, pain. INFINITE CRISIS pain, Heinboot pain, Shamazons pain, it was a dark time for Wondy fans. We snarked, we cursed, we railed, we wept, we prayed for some benevolent god to save us.

There was one small, bright candle in the darkness, though, and his name was Marc Andreyko - the writer of the then-ongoing MANHUNTER, a true gem of a series about a lawyer named Kate Spencer who strapped on a costume when the Law just wasn't enough. Much in the vein of Slott's SHE-HULK, Kate dealt primarily in metahuman crime. Unlike Shulkie, Kate worked very much on the edge of Acceptable Vigilante Practices, killing those rogues whom she perceived to be too dangerous to live; she spent much of her series defending metahuman criminals in order to get close enough to effectively take them down.

Guess who, thanks to Brother Eye, was considered a metahuman criminal after the OYL jump?
