This week: More weird editorially-driven comics from DC, as we get one new #1 and one “Rebirth” comic. Guess which one does a better job at telling a story?!?!?!?

Rearranging the deck chairs: DC Rebirth titles, Week Six!

img597 (2)

DC cranked out two more “Rebirth” titles this week, and I’m beginning to get worried. I have less than half the store credit I started with, so I don’t know if I’ll be able to get all of them for free, especially as they’re seemingly stretching this thing out to infinity. What will I do?!?!? I’ll worry about it later – for now, these comics aren’t going to review themselves!

Are Hanna-Barbera execs a bunch of cool people, or do they really not pay attention to comics?

img568

The fourth Hanna-Barbera/DC comics collaboration, The Flintstones, came out this week, and like the other three offerings, it’s a truly odd comic. I really can’t answer my question that forms the title of this post – I want to believe that the people who licensed these characters to DC are just awesome people, but I really wonder if they paid attention to DC when they were told, “Yeah, we’re going to mash up a bunch of characters into a Jonny Quest story, put Scooby-Doo and the gang into a post-apocalyptic world, turn Wacky Races into Mad Max, and that’s even before we get to the Flintstones!” Maybe they just said, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, who reads comics anyway?” and went back to whatever it is Hanna-Barbera execs do for fun. But hey, we’ve gotten some interesting comics out of it!

Rearranging the deck chairs: DC Rebirth titles, Week Four!

justiceleaguerebirth

After two weeks in which DC released zero (0) actual “Rebirth” titles or #1 issues of new series (some series aren’t cool enough to get “Rebirth” titles, I guess), this week we have … one such title (1). Sigh. Come on, DC, step up your scheduling game!

Flippin’ through Previews – July 2016

Dr-FATE-cover-16-f6267 (2)

There’s been no DC comics I want to read in the past two weeks (that changed this week, as you’ll soon see!), and I’m in the middle of unpacking after our move so I have no access right now to old comics that I might want to write about, but when Previews comes out, it’s time to check what’s what! Let’s dig in!

Rearranging the deck chairs: DC Rebirth titles, Week Three!

One is the loneliest number this week, as one shalt be the number of DC Rebirth titles thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be one. It’s better than next week, I suppose, when there are none. Let’s get to it!

Rearranging the deck chairs: DC Rebirth titles, Week Two!

img502 (2)

It’s the second week of DC‘s latest Great Rebirthening, and if you thought I was going to bail on these posts after one week of fairly mediocre comics, you thought wrong! I have store credit and I’m not afraid to use it, so let’s check out the shiny new books that DC unleashed upon us this week!

The gloriously insane hot mess that is Wacky Raceland #1

img494

Run, don’t walk, to your favorite neighborhood comics shoppe and get a copy of Wacky Raceland #1. Or, if you’re a godawful Millennial (you young’uns with your complicated hair and your fancy vests), download it onto your phone so you have to squint to read it. What’s wrong with you people? What the hell is wrong with good old-fashioned paper, which is how Ike read a comic, damn it! However you read it, you must read it. It’s just that important!!!!

Rearranging the deck chairs: DC Rebirth titles, Week One!

img439 (2)

Much like I did with the “New 52,” I’m using my store credit to check out the “DC Rebirth” titles. As they’re being released on a staggered schedule instead all in one month, I figured I’ll do them week-by-week rather than all at once. But after one week, will I really feel like getting the rest? Let’s find out!
