Back in those first couple of issues, he was pretty intelligent, although later he fell into a kind of Cartesian dualism where Banner was all brain and the Hulk was all body. Personally I like smart Hulks better than dumb ones, especially for horror — for the simple reason that a dumb Hulk can be controlled. When a monster like the Hulk isn't just a bellowing beast — when he has his own agenda, and you don't know what it is, and he might be two steps ahead of you, that's inherently more frightening. -- Al Ewing

Hi guys, it's been a long time. I've been without a computer for a while, so I've been lurking on my phone, but posting has been out of the question. Well I've got a new comp now, and I'd like to catch up on this Solstice Event I missed. So my next three posts will be a story about one of my favourite familys, friends, and a ghost story all in one. We'll call part one the "friend," part.

This is from Sakura Taisen: The Manga Version. A very expanded adaptation of the Sakura Taisen video games. Here's the gist, in an alternate version of 1920s Tokyo the Teikoku Kagekidan Hana-gumi are a group made up almost entirely of women, who have high levels of "spirit power," that allow them to perform superhuman feats and and effectively combat demons using steam powered, spirit driven mechs. To train those powers, and hone their team work they pose as an all female musical revue, inspired by an actual Japanese theatre style pioneered by the Takarazuka Kagekidan.

Two members of that team have an interesting "love-hate," or maybe "double tsundere," relationship, they are Sumire Kanzaki, and Kanna Kirishima. They are my number one favourite pairing in this series.

We join them now as they are putting on a production based on the Chinese Novel, "Journey to the West." 28/84 pages from this chapter

"He’s a young man who could have a successful and peaceful life if he could just put away his desire for revenge. In this case he’s really focused on Klaw and the men that took him from Wakanda, and also punishing Wakanda itself for its failures. We begin the story with him making that choice to step away from one potential future and step into another that speaks to more of his darker nature. For me, that’s what a tragedy is, really. Something isn’t tragic unless you can see a way that it could have worked out better." -- Bryan Hill

Sorry for all the posts, guess most of my month's list came out today. (In retrospect I probably should have saved some of the earlier posts for later.) Will probably post two more after this and then I'll be done.
