Thanks to Jeff Lemire on Aquaman, I am totally wanting my kids to draw a superhero book with me as the lead. I wonder what I can bribe them with?

MLP #17

Obviously, My Little Pony comics of course. And good to know they can both read better than a pony…

IMG_0034

From Nova… hang on, didn't they have a Skrull Invasion not that long ago? Didn't Fear Itself get everywhere? How about when the Thanos took away half the population? What about Galactus? Surely even this hick town couldn't have missed it all?

IMG_0032

Avengers World manages to get Bruce Banner to point out one of the flaws in the mega casting so far. He should be on an internet message board. Maybe he already is.

IMG_0022

And the entire Batfamily modus operandi comes crashing down as well in Batwoman

IMG_0024

Really Iron Man? The show turned you into a pervert? And not banging your way around the galaxy, regardless of species? Not that there's anything wrong with that…

IMG_0014

And New Avengers has a go at its fellow storylines… you know, I didn't think Mark Millar's Red Son was that bad!

IMG_0009

Maybe you should ask Nightcrawler in X-Men, he might have a different take. Even th Beast seems to have come round on this particular one.

IMG_0036

Not human? Pandora if I were you, I'd keep a close eye on Tony Stark. Especially if he brings along any… equipment. You know what I'm talking about.

IMG_0012

And so does Harley Quinn. Say, is this the first use of "personal massagers" in the New 52?

xthoughts_aix9

And in Aphrodite IX #9 we can see how those devices can have… other uses.

undertow

Though Undertow #2 seems to insist that they're not as good as the real thing.

IMG_0023

Well, yes Boomerang in Suicide Squad, with that kind of hand held equipment, you probably could as well. Say, I know someone you should meet.

Suicide Risk Vol 2

From Suicide Risk Vol 2, we have the demonic entity known as Aksholer. How do you pronounce that again? What kind of hole?

swdcs4p1

The kind that, I don't know, this starcruiser from the new Star Wars comic might be able to make?

IMG_0021

You know, I think you might have just let the neighbourhood go a bit. I think Heaven needs some gentrification in Wonder Woman, straight away. Also, you're a bit of a fixer upper yourself…

TERMEomE2

Terminator : Enemy Of My Enemy#2 might have some ideas how to deal with that.

buffyEven if Buffy Season 10 #1 might provide some competition.

IMG_0020

I'm surprised that New York water tower in Daredevil managed to survive that long without superheroes and super villains using it to hit each other with/smash into leading to a flood/send plummeting down to the street, only to be snatched away at the last second.

IMG_0019

Poor guy. Being in the Uncanny X-Men can be rough on a fellow.

IMG_0018

Look, we checked into the Fantastic Four movie story properly okay? We really did. Thanks Superior Spider-Man Annual … and yes, readers of the regular storyline will probably need to pick this one up too.

IMG_0016

I want that on a T-shirt, Superman Unleashed.

IMG_0015

C'mon, how many other folks do you know with their own personal revenge mosque squad, than from Ms Marvel? Any other religious-based violence to hand?

Loki Ragnarok and Roll 2

Why yes, it appears Thor from Loki Ragnarok and Roll #2 wants to get in on the act.

Okko Vol 4 - The Cycle of Fire

And the holy order of the samurai show they're something not be messed with in Okko Vol 4 – The Cycle of Fire.

Samurai Jack #6

There are more pressing concerns for Samurai Jack #6 taking a night time walk. Just be careful and don;t fall in or you never know what might happen.

Witcher1

Witcher #1 does like to use the word drown a lot. Almost as if it is drowning in it… could anyone else use that water.

 

Utrom Empire #3

I can think of one fellow in Utrom Empire #3…

IMG_0013

Funny, they could have used her over in Superman Unleashed, which is going through the same thing this week. Supergirl shows us why these secretive spy megaconglomerates exist!

sex criminals

I confess, thanks to Sex Criminals #5, I have just googled "kegelface". I thought I knew. I needed to be sure. And now I will never forget ever again, not even if you scrub my brain with mind rubbers.

AdventureTime 26

In Adventure Time #26 this, apparently, isn't some screaming hideous nightmare to wake you in a cold sweat, gripping the sheets with one hand and your heart with another. Different strokes.

Clockwork Angels 1

Clockwork Angels #1 gives us the wind-up dog. And not in the usual way by saying "walkies" repeatdly but never even approaching the door.

Curse 3

Curse #3 give us the distraction technique. But thankfully all secondary booby trap have special sounds when they are activated, as opposed to doing their job and being quiet.

xthoughts_avitd5

A Voice In The Dark #5 makes me feel so very very old. Poloroids have to be explained to the audience now. Or at least the younger characters within…

BPRD117

In BPRD #117, the scenery really comes alive. Are those vent pipes really trying to get a look down he sights themselves as well?

WhiteSuits2

White Suits #2 shows us the latest in diplomatic language protocol.

Skyman3

Thank you Skyman #3, before any kind of supercharacter fight, it's good to lay down what is expected of the participants in a full and forthright manner. Why not draw up a contract? Call it a pre-kerpow.

zero

There's a lot of frankness going around today, thank you Zero.

murders

Oh yes, I should point out, I have a comic story out today in Dark Horse Presents #34. The conclusion to The Library In The Body, the second Many Murders Of Miss Cranbourne story. There may, apparently, by other comics in this anthology as well that might even be worth checking out…

Robots in Disguise #27

Transformers Robots in Disguise #27 shows us that you never want to get on the couch with Shockwave.

Regeneration One #100

While Transformers Regeneration One shows us that you can go back home, at least if it's your hundredth issue… technically.

Magic The Gathering Theros #5

I thought that was quite a magical proposal in Magic The Gathering: Theros #5. I mean, I'd have said yes.

 

Illegitimates #4

Yes, Illegitimates #4, that's exactly how dibs work. I look forward to everyone respecting that call, don't you?

G.I. Joe #14

G.I. Joe #14 takes on the Twitter generation as its embedded tweeter isn't that pleased with the commercially handy role the character has been prescribed. Breaking the on pack programming?

lazarus

My ass quit years ago. Thanks for the reminder, Lazarus.

fuse

Fuse #2 goes straight for the stereotype. I don't know, I know many funny Germans. What can I say, they have ways of making you laugh.rocket girl

While Rocket Girl shows the the impact of removing racial profiling from enforcement officers of all descriptions…

So, what have you been reading this week?
