  1. Kinda cool and sad that the one shot acknowledges Tefé by reference for the first time in nearly 15 years after Swampy's 4th vol (2004-05). Then again, considering The Mustache and Milligan, we should be grateful she's been in limbo for this long. Re: Art- anyone noticed a slight nod to Sean Murphy a bit with the zipper patterns on the coat sleeves?
  2. Almost wenr over analysis kode but goddamn it, give me October 30th already!!
  3. Ironic considering how Frusin drew the trench coat that long in the 2000-2003 (especially late Azzarello and early Carey) period long before Tennant and 10th's coat came into public view
  4. Especially when that arc from the NBC series was never Berlanti's Guggenheim's or Legends' showrunner to begin with. Makes me more forgiving of the New 52, Doyle-Tynion IV and the Genie crap (not really saying much for either one)
  5. Or if Gaiman can ween our John & Matt away from the Berlanti Ghetto for a guest appearance in Sandman triggering a new series spun off from it w/ Books of Magic in tow
  6. Given restrictions and mandating capes (i.e. the JL cameo both his one-shot and Seeley's 3 parter and the final issues with Huntress), sap out is an understatement
  7. Since its Gaiman and Spurrier, I trust their word deeply compared to Oliver (and I wished he was given Swamp Thing instead of them putting the old guard in Len Wein for it to get the Abby stuff sorted out and close the damned Djinn shite there) and Seeley did fine despite the shoehorned capes and poor art after Merino.
  8. Shiiit. I'd take those 4 years as a coma dream at this point
  9. Same. Considering a decade of shit between Milligan, the New52/DCYou & Rebirth (with a fraction exception to Seeley), there's nowhere to go but up* for the moment *Unless Cacarot (DiDio) fucks it all to to the shitter for another episode of why he'll never be Jim Shooter (and Paul Levitz was a whole fool for giving him a job in Editoral in the first place all those years ago)
  10. If so, it'd be a better career highlight than being Not!Vader

    DC Comics

    .....😑 between Alan Horn (the WB exec who killed DC by screwing over the inprint and bringing in Dan DiDio who's now running a Live Action Remake Mill*) and Tom Rothman (his own exec meddling during same 12 years at Fox as Horn's tenure at the WB), I wish neither fucker made it as far they did; especially Horn. He got his wish far as turning DC into the branding wasteland and nothing gets spared. We know what they'll pump out with Black Label will be only Capes so the likes of Miller and Azz can get more work. DC is dead to me Mark my words, the only TPBs for our John they'll put out is the New 52/DCYou/Rebirth material and the stuff we enjoyed will suffer the same fate Paul Jenkins' run did for a long time (til 2014) *might as well call the House of Mouse that anyway outside of Marvel
  12. Thus the blame lies on the doorsteps of Warner and its AT&T overlords
  13. And bang goes what little goodwill WB/AT&T ever gained from the DCU stream. Now folks will worry about Doom Patrol's fate because of this. Good luck on reclaiming the customers they just lost from this choice.
  14. OH, I do hope so. Anything to get him and our John away from the CW Ghetto
  15. Not so much that, but one person credited as a EP had been pushing Cyborg for nearly a decade: Geoff Johns. Why I single him out? Well, he does have a strong preference for what he considers his era of comics and entertainment (i.e. The Superfriends era 1973-1986) hence why he, along with the 'stasche when devising thr Nee 52 snatched him and abolished his Titans history while in turn screwing over Martian Manhunter out of the founding member role in the JLA. Another reason for why this show is due to the failure of the Snyder flavored DCEU (though semi salvaged by both Wonder Woman and Aquaman) along with the fact that the Cyborg of the New 52 era isn't of interest; only there because Johns made him 1 of the 3 mother boxes of Apokolips. Plus given how little the character (& actor Ray Fisher) was given plus the two cancelled solo series within the last 4 years, the planned movie signposted for 2020 is pretty much dead and buried. But yeah, I got to side with Christian on this. There is Joshua and Tempest but considering who's name has been tied to every DC project since The Green Lantern movie to here, of course "we need our diversity brownie points even though the tide will reverse this corporate hollow trend in the 2020s"
  16. Gonna have to agree with Christian. Hell, we've not even seen Tefé in the decade since Diggle and Dysart and she like Gemma (the real one as we last saw her under Carey and Mina) buggered of to the same Waffle pocket universe Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain were hiding in soon as DiDio and Johns got their grubby hands on our John
  17. Ok, so having read this issue while in route to work, it does have something going for it* even for a now 3 part fill in far as introductions go. Seely got our John's voice on point and Merino's art feels right back at where we ought to have been after Diggle as opposed to what we ended up getting 8 years ago around this time. *Said this about Oliver but we been deep throated by Djinn and a bride of a Elemental who's now Blue!Lady Jane
  18. Finally read the two. Its Denise Mina all over again except Djinn is the new Empathy. The arc should've been capped off at #6 then different story would've took its place. That plus the Book plot thread of Lapdogs and Englishmen molded into one giant muddle As for the missing Abby, that other plot thread would've bern more investing had the DiDiot greenlit a Swamp Thing: Rebirth title so that thread csn conclude there.
  19. And that couldn't be Mako from Diggle's run WHY, Simon??
  20. Turkish Tony's* remembers.... *Pepperidge Farm's taken
  21. But on Oliver: Like Denise Mina a decade before, he got the voice and swagger of our John but not the story. For Mina, it was the Third Place & for Oliver, its the Djinn. Which is a pity even more since he's one of us. Credit where credits due,at least Johns and DiDio didn't hijack the run for their "All the bad stuff you dislike is all Alan Moore's fault (even though we're the real monsters)!!" campaign
