The Flash: Season Zero #2 Review

Written by: Brooke Eikmeier and Katherine Walczak
Art by: Phil Hester
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: September 22, 2014

Freak Show


I can't wait for the Flash TV Show to start so when this comic was announced I was pretty hyped up.  I'll take any Flash comic I can get my hands on and mix in a prequel to my most anticipated show and you got yourself a sweet deal.  Unfortunately, the first issue was a bit of a letdown.  It seemed to suffer from an identity crisis and struggled to find it's footing.  You'll probably never see me write this again, but it was too cartoony for my tastes.  This issue does a better job, but adds a couple new problems to the mix.  It's not a bad comic, but it's leaving a lot of potential on the table.

Just For The Hell Of It Mondays: Supergirl


With the Supergirl TV show being announced that it will find a home at CBS this week, I figured that I'd take the opportunity to have a video featuring our favorite Girl of Steel.  Now while I could show you something awesome like Stargirl and Supergirl teaming up from Justice League Unlimited or Laura Vandervoort rocking the Supergirl persona in Smallville, I figured I'd stay consistent and find the most boring video you could imagine.  Well it's not that bad, it's the end of the documentary on the making of Supergirl the motion picture and while I don't think I've ever heard anyone say that they liked the flick, it did have a fond place in my heart as I was growing up and didn't know what a bad movie was yet.  As bad as the flick was, Helen Slater will always be my live action Supergirl and I'm not ashamed to say that I had a bit of a crush on her as a child and I might still today.  I have to see if I act like a complete idiot when I meet her and I'll be able to completely understand if the feelings are still there.  If this is a way to prove sexual feelings for someone though, then I have a full out man crush on James Hampton who placed Michael J. Fox's father in Teen Wolf, because man did I geek out on him.  But anyway check out this making of video and get a little nostalgic for our original Supergirl Helen Slater and the movie that burned us on Supergirl for many many years.

Red Hood and The Outlaws: Futures End #1 Review and *SPOILERS*

Written By: Scott Lobdell
Art By: Scott Kolins
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: September 17, 2014



Taking Out The Trash


What's there to say about Red Hood and The Outlaws Five Years From Now?  Well for one thing this
cover is really misleading.  I can assure you before we get into this review that there will be no Arsenal and Starfire trying to take down Red Hood, like the cover suggests.  Maybe just a little Arsenal, but it's briefly glanced at and the important thing to know about this book going in is it returns Red Hood to his roots by allowing him to go off and simply kick ass and take names.  While I've always liked that expression, I've never really got the whole taking names bit.  I've never had my ass kicked and then the person doing the ass kicking asks me "Hey, what's your name?" and I've certainly not kicked any ass in my time.......  That's what I read books like Red Hood and the Outlaws for to get it all out of my system.  So let's see Red Hood kick some ass Five Years From Now and see if he's missed a step in a post war world.  Let's check it out.

Written by: Dan Abnett

Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: September 21, 2014

Awful Fate



Last week I continued my ranting about this book.  My main issue is that it seems happy to just tread water.  Maybe it's a problem inherent with a video game tie-in, but Dan Abnett and company seem to be more intent on introducing new characters instead of pushing the story forward.  Well, this week isn't any better.  Last week's ending seemed to be gearing the reader up for some real story progression, but instead we start off with a new team.  Don't get me wrong, they are pretty awesome...for a bit.  Then the issue ends inches from where the last one did. Lovely.

Weird Science DC Comics News Week of 9/20/2014




Heloooooooooooooooo everybody.  You think that's annoying to read, you should hear it live.  Actually, you just may.  It seems that Eric and Myself are going to be guests tonight on Geekcast Radio's Pull Bag Podcast.  I have no idea when it will hit the website, but I know one thing...I will surely make a fool of myself.  It's all about how we got into reading comics and such, but I have a feeling it will go off the rails a bit.  We tend to ramble on about meaningless things so I hope Mike Blanchard, the host with the most, puts up with us.  As for comics, I'm pretty sure Eric will have better stories of how he got into this hobby we all know and love.  I will add stories of dancing dwarfs and eating massive amounts of hot dogs.  You know, the important things in life.  Well, enough of the shameless plugs (and no, I'm not speaking of Jeremy Piven), it's time to get down to brass tacks.

Batman Beyond 2.0 #34 Review

Written by: Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel
Art by: Thony Silas
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: September 20, 2014

Family Ties



Batman Beyond 2.0 only has a handful of issue left, but Higgins and Siegel use this one to setup more than push forward.  That's not a bad thing since what they setup is pretty damn awesome.  This arc has been about Family, but it's also clear it's about living up (or down) to reputations.  Everyone and everything seems to be heading towards a huge final confrontation.  I can't wait until it happens and when it does, issues like this one will make it all the better.

DC Comics Best Covers of the Week 9/20/14

We are right in the middle of the Futures End Event and while I think those 3D covers are a bunch of bull pucky, that really doesn't
matter this week.  This week should be called, "Multiversity Week" because that book's covers are sweeping the awards like it think it's Ben Hur in 1959.  It truly is the King of Kings.

It’s the final showdown between The Flash and his future self for control of the Speed Force – with Wally West’s life hanging in the balance!



Now this is an issue I'm looking forward to.  Not only does it have the full regular creative team, but uses the Event to continue it's own storyline in a way that matters.  I'm sure Wally West haters are still gonna hate, but I just hope Venditti and Jensen make him a wee bit more likeable.  One thing is a given, Brett Booth's art rocks as usual.  Enjoy the preview.

Cover Price: $0.99

Crisis Prevention


Now this is more like it.  After being disappointed by the ending of Chaos and the beginning of Continuity, it only took this issue to make things right again.  This issue is strong from start to finish and Supes even gives another "Independence Day" speech to end it and this one is pretty good.   I guess the second time's the charm.  I'm usually all for a good reboot, but I'm now officially against it.

Supergirl: Futures End #1 Review and *SPOILERS*

Written By: Tony Bedard

Release Date: September 17, 2014

Girl of Steel...... Literally


I guess since I can't give you a proper recap because there's five years between what I know and what's going on here, I'll simply give you a tutorial on the New 52's Cyborg Superman.  This could be completely pointless for people who have been reading every issue of Supergirl, but way back in Supergirl #24 we learned that one of my favorite villains in the history of DC Comics was for his re-imagining the father of Supergirl, Zor-El.  Yeah Cyborg Superman's whole plan was to use a Kryptonian and use their DNA to revert himself back to the Kryptonian he used to be before Brainiac changed him and when he actually succeeded in his plan he realized that he was Zor-El and that he just destroyed his daughter to get that information.  So aspiring for father of the year award, Zor-El reversed the process, bringing his daughter back to life and becoming the monster that he was trying to escape once again.  While it wasn't the Hank Henshaw version that I loved in the old continuity, this version really created a cool dynamic and it was one of my favorite Supergirl stories of the New 52.  Okay so now you know and we can get into this Futures End event not completely in the dark.  Let's check it out.

I can't wait to read this issue.  You know why?  It's Sholly Fisch and not Ann Nocenti. Fisch was the writer on the only Catwoman issue that was worth anything in the past year.  From this preview, I think I'll enjoy this as well.  I think that Crime Boss Selina has been a bit forced in Eternal, so I hope this changes my mind a bit.  Again, it's not Ann Nocenti...awesome.

Top 5 Fridays: Top 5 Titles That Should Have Been Cancelled Before Superboy


While I was tooling around this week thinking about what Top 5 list to do, it occurred to me through numerous conversations that involved a lot of bitching, how much I really missed Superboy.  While I enjoyed reviewing the title I never really thought of it as one of my favorites, but now that it's gone and since it's Futures End tie-in sucked, I finally know that it was my top Superman family book and I want it back!  The book took so long trying to figure out what it wanted to be and yeah it took misstep after misstep, but it's heart was in the right place.  Yeah that doesn't make any sense, but it was Kon and he was cool and if the title would of held out a little longer and figured out a way to bring Kon back and get rid of Jon Lane Kent, it would have won it's fans back by showing them what they've missed.  Now it's rumored that Kon will return either at the end of this year or beginning of next in a Gen13 comic, but the problem I have with that is, it still isn't the title I want.  The hell with it, You all know that I love this title now and I'm going to throw other titles under the bus that should of been cancelled instead of my recently realized beloved Superboy.  For this Top 5 I'll also be giving you the sales numbers from May, when Superboy was announced cancelled and giving you the August sales numbers for Superboy's final issue.  So let's get to bashing titles you might love just so I can get through a proper interweb tantrum with Top 5 Titles That Should Have Been Cancelled Before Superboy.  Let's check it out.

Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #6 Review

Written by: Ivan Cohen

Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: September 18, 2014

'Cause You Gotta Have Faith


I've really enjoyed Sensation Comics for what it is.  Nice little stories about Wonder Woman and her place in the World.  Nothing too mind blowing, but that's it's charm and I wouldn't want it any other way.  This book has filled the void that was left after DC canceled Adventures of Superman and seems to be it's spiritual successor.  I can only hope this book lasts as long (if not longer) as Supes' book did.

I Want to Suck...



I wish I had some fancy time traveling Police Box that may or may not be bigger on the inside because right now I'd set it to go back ten minutes or so and warn myself not to read this issue.  I know that would mean that I couldn't review it, but it also means that I'd still have total faith in Marc Andreyko and his take on Batwoman.  I have complained about these Future End issues having nothing to do with Futures End and this issue is a prime example, but my hatred of it runs deeper.  It's just an awful issue that ruins everything I've loved about Andreyko's run on the book.  Don't get me wrong, I am not a dummy who thinks this story is ever going to continue or that these Futures End stories won't be wiped clean after the event, but the bad taste this issue  left is going to stick around for a while.

Teen Titans: Futures End #1 Review and *SPOILERS*

Written By: Will Pfeifer

Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: September 17, 2014


The New Kids On The Block


So if you've read Batman and Robin: Futures End, then you'll know that the Dark Knight spent the majority of that issue getting his ass handed to him by The Heretic.  Now the interesting thing about that is that The Heretic is the one that killed Damian Wayne and turned out to be a deformed baby headed hulking monster clone of Damian, so with all this Robin Rises hype going around it's not out of the realm of possibility to think that this might be a future incarnation of Damian or a clone of Damian.  Here's the problem.  In Batman and Robin: Futures End, The Heretic was just a silent hulking beast that wanted to kill Batman.  Here we'll see a very different Heretic that joins this new group of super teens that form a team to take down an asshole billionaire that does awful things to people and pretty much anything around him.  We can speculate about the other Heretic just being a programmed clone, but for the Damian lovers out there I'm going with this being the "real" Damian or the "real" incarnation of a future Damian created from a clone.  I'll quit it with the exposition so we can just get into this issue.  Let's check it out.

Getting inside Batman's Head


Getting to our weekly recap so you know what's going on this issue, we're looking at Cal Corcoran aka Tim Drake who has faked his death and has decided to spend his days dispensing beer at a bar called "The Wounded Duck".  All would of been fine and Tim could of lived happily ever after with his girlfriend Madison if Lois Lane hadn't come snooping about with the items from her mystery box, she got after Green Arrow's funeral, pointing her to Tim and other mysterious things.  So Lois tried outing Tim and eventually outed Shazam as being an impostor Superman.  More things we'll be looking at here involve Batman Beyond teaming up with villains to gain access to Terrifitech, where they planned on stealing the Usphere prototype and Terry planned on gaining info about Brother Eye's location.  Well Terry got what he wanted and got Key and Coil arrested.  On Cadmus Island we've learned that Brother Eye has been hiding out in their systems and now has full control over it and the Earth 2 heroes that were given implants.  Well all of Cadmus except Deathstroke, Lana Lang, Fifty Sue and Grifter.  One last thing, awhile ago we jumped further ahead to the future where we saw that Brother Eye didn't kill Batman after sending Terry back in time and after he was captured we also saw that the Joker is alive and well Thirty Five Years From Now.  So let's jump into this issue and see where Futures End takes us this week.

Dr. Manhattan Envy


Here we are with part two of the story that began in last week's Justice League United.  There we saw Equinox team up with the Futures End Justice League to try and stop a prison break from a secret gulag on Mars, built to keep the worst of the worst off of Earth.  We found out that after the facility was built, Martian Manhunter became it's warden to watch over the prisoners and to telepathically keep them docile.  Yeah it's a bit fucked up, but everyone's crazy in the future so what would you expect?  Once on Mars the team is met by many villains and when Equinox, Dawnstar and Stormguard break off to find Martian Manhunter, we find our hero restrained by Gorilla Grodd, but the mastermind behind the breakout turned out to be the long missing Captain Atom.  So let's jump into this conclusion and see why Captain Atom was locked away in the first place and see if our heroes will be able to overcome him and his new band of villains as they try to escape their Martian prison.  Let's check it out.

This Futures End Event sure is an odd egg.  I'd dare to say it's like a box of chocolates, but that reference is played out even for me.  I'm just confused about what it's all about.  This issue doesn't tie directly into the Futures End story.  It doesn't seem crucial to the main run of the book, either.  However, it's one of the better books I've read so far this month.  How can that be?  Well, sit down and pour yourself some grape kool-aid and listen as I tell you the story of the God of War.

Fight Scene


Leading up to this issue I've been getting really excited because since Damian died and this title became Batman and *Insert Name Here*, I've been patiently waiting for any sign of Damian's final fate.  So here we are Five Years From Now and we have The Heretic on the cover, so why wouldn't I just squeal like a tiny Asian girl at the prospects of seeing what became of young Damian?  So this could be the issue people that gives us the definitive answer on the fate of our fallen Robin and possibly give us some closure, or at least a bit of hope for what future stories might bring........  Oh yeah that's right this is merely a deceptive event issue and probably won't lead to anything that isn't completely vague on something that matters to so many of us.  Sorry I almost forgot how comic books work for a second.  So enough banter, let's check out what Batman and Robin holds for us Five Years From Now.

Damn That's A Long Title


Here we are again, exploring Grant Morrison's strange imagining of the Multiverse and this time we'll be checking out Earth 20 and Earth 40.  Not that it really matters here, but last time we saw Superman of Earth-23 and a convention of parallel Earth superheroes all get together at a hub of the Multiverse to rescue the last Monitor, Nix Uotan from a unspeakable evil that was threatening the whole of the Multiverse.  After missing their landing point and ending up on the wrong Earth, our heroes fought Marvel-esque versions of the DC Universe and eventually found themselves in trouble when Nix Uotan and his sidekick pirate chimpanzee enter that Earth, but it seems that he too has been corrupted by the evil that threatens them all.  It's funny to me that after all that info was dropped on our lap that this issue has nothing to do with it and we have to relearn everything all over again.  So let's check out this issue's Society of Super-Heroes and see what peril threatens them and their world.

Justice For All!  Except For Maybe Them Over There.


It's time to jump back into the future and see what our favorite characters are up to Five Years From Now.  Only problem that I can see is that we really know nothing about the Justice League United and the slew of other new titles that have taken up the Futures End moniker this month.  Now so far I'm digging this event, but we're dealing with a mysterious past that led to these characters being the messed up people they are in the future and now we have that with characters we know literally nothing about.  This is a Equinox heavy story and in the normal title I would be happy about that, but I don't get how they can just throw this character at us with nothing to tell us who she is, or what she can do.  Okay I'm done bitching so we can get into this issue which is part one of two and will be concluded in the Justice League: Futures End story.  So let's check out Equinox and the Justice League Five Years From Now and see what we can gleam from this mysterious new character.

I'm a bit confused with this Futures End "Event".  I wouldn't have minded too much if the September issues were just fun little what ifs of the future, but to shoehorn them into something they're not is upsetting.  And don't get me started on those 3D covers...jeez.  Okay, I've got a little off my chest and am ready to continue.  This issue is a fun little what if of the future that doesn't have much to do with the Futures End story.  Of course, "fun" in this future means killing, maiming and explosions.  You know, fun.  Unfortunately, fun doesn't always equal good.
