Well, I was in wars, right? Like I was there. And looking back at it, I don’t remember the loudness of it. I remember the quiet moments. I remember seeing my wife at the airport, waving good-bye to her. I remember driving in a car with a friend. I don’t know, it’s just where my memory goes, is the quiet moments. So to me, that’s what turns out to define the war, more than the big bang of it. I just sort of remember the small echoes. -- Tom King

That last page maybe one of the best I have ever seen.

They are people of honor, pride, and duty. Their marriage, their love affair is a pairing of equals. Neither will be a crutch or an anchor to the other. They are at once together, and very much themselves.

And then all that gets chucked out the window, because she loves him, and will not allow him to die, for her own sake as much as his. As dearly as they hold their principles, their love triumphs.

I can see a bit of why some writers don't like to write married couples: getting it -this- right must be tough.

Jeeze, Funky cannot catch a break can he? I mean the last time he showed up he got murdered by Captain Cold after he tried to rip off supervillain images for merchandise. Now this.

He's kind of an idiot, though. That's Big Barda. Did he really think for a microsecond that she wouldn't fight the armies of heaven and hell combined and shatter all the worlds that are, were and ever will be if that's what it took to save her beloved?

Oh I know Funky is an idiot.

The context for the Captain Cold thing is that in an issue of Superman, Supes finds out that Funky is selling merchandise with Superman and other heroes faces on it to line his pocket. Since in the DC Universe costumed characters are considered public domain, there's nothing they can do to stop him. So Lois suggests to Funky he could make even more money if he expanded into doing the same thing for super villains. Which he does... which draws the ire of Captain Cold, who walks into Funky's shop one day and is like "This is for me and all the other working stiff villains you are ripping off to hock your crap." And he freezes him solid.

So yeah, Funky being an imbecile who thinks he can make a quick buck off of insanely dangerous stunts and then paying for it is pretty consistent of his character (Also worth mentioning he's a pretty blatant jab at Stan Lee).

...Wait. Did Lois seriously manipulate a guy into committing suicide-by-supervillain because she was annoyed that he was selling stuff with Clark's face on it? O_o

As I recall it was a weird issue. There was also a B plot in that episode where Lois and Clark were doing an interview as some sort of weird sex roleplay like they were pretending it was like it was before they were married and she didn't know he was Supes.

Not saying they don't do stuff like that, but yeah manipulating Funky into killing himself was kind of an OOC move for her.

As Nickleback said, If today was your last day, And tomorrow was too late,
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?"

How would Tom King do a Daredevil run? Eh, he's probably make Bendis' run look "light and sunny."

I love Tom King's quotes. Every time I read them I want to see an autobiography.

I feel like I need to read all the pages of each issue to understand what is happening beyond the basics...
