So Comixology released a 'preview' issue for Death of the Family which was pretty much just the rest of the covers.

Which are under this handy cut tag! )

Ah, Arkham Asylum. Hospital for the mentally ill, prison for supervillains and the most mainstream HP Lovecraft reference in comicbooks! Now, when people talk about Arkham, it's normally connected in some manner with how Batman is "incompetant" in some way for not stopping the Joker, Killer Croc and company from routinely escaping from the alleged SuperMax facility whenever the mood strikes them.

Well today I've decided to have a look at the numerous ways that, really, it's really the Arkham members of staff who are at fault here, not just Batman not having the time to physically watch his rogues 24/7 to ensure they don't go walk about. Plus Halloween is coming up, and this is kind of good subject matter for the season.

Let's begin!

Robots in Disguise gets a lot less attention than the other current Transformers ongoing, More than Meets the Eye, and for understandable reasons. The two books are done by different creative teams, and the former is definitely the weaker of the two in both writing and art. (YMMV, of course.) But it's still doing some interesting stuff, I feel.

Take, for example, last month's Annual and its mythological Celestial-esque take on the more giant-sized Transformers. Eleven pages from a 40 page issue.

Feel the 1980s-ness! )
perletwo: Gim & Yera, the happy couple (legion - allons)

Hi ho! it's time once again for perletwo to bring you some new Legion Lost and to speak of herself in the third person for no good reason. Not a bad issue, #13 - some dangling plot threads begin to weave together at last.

You may recall, when last we left our Losties in #12, they had just evaded the military black ops metahuman hit squad out to capture them, courtesy of Gates, who told them they were headed for Krygyzistan. The hit squad, meanwhile, had gained an appreciation for the Legion via a telepathic time-share with the 30th-century bad guy Alastor, now an energy being.

But orders is orders, so the Losties are now Gates'ing from city to city to throw the hit squad off their trail. They've taken refuge in an abandoned amusement park when suddenly Tellus cries out in agony, as if millions of voices cried out in terror...and then...were silenced. Wildfire takes off into the black to investigate, rudely blowing off Dawnstar's offer of help. Unfortunately he finds something the cover lines describe thusly:

Back planetside, Yera again makes her pitch for going after Harvest, the big bad of the godawful The Culling crossover event. Tyroc points out there are no historical records of a 31st-century criminal operating in the 21st century or heading an organization like N.O.W.H.E.R.E. "What do you know that we don't?"

Yera holds her tongue, but cues up the flashbacks. )

"Next issue: SUPERBOY...the RAVAGERS...and HARVEST join the fray!!!" Which I guess means we'll be treated to another big multifaction donnybrook issue that kills any narrative momentum we've picked up. *sigh*
