Many geeks the world over are fans of Orson Scott Card. The writer behind Ender’s Game(soon to be a major motion boycott) and the soon-to-be-but-hopefully-not story director behind DC’s new digital comic featuring Superman. However, the question we must ask ourselves is: Can gay geeks be fans of Mr. Card? Or should we boycott the blatantly homophobic author?
Supergirl has not been having a great time since she first came to Earth but she may start getting some answers to all those questions that have been nagging her! Who shot her father? Why was she sent to Earth? Is Superman really her cousin? How many stars does this comic get? The answer to the last question is three!
How much am I loving this series? A-whole-fucking-lot! And Issue #12 of Azzarello’s Wonder Woman has everything: a child, creepy twins that give me an incest-vibe, and a Super Saiyan! This issue is getting four stars!
Five stars! Five. Five of them. To this issue of Batman. Why? Read after the jump to find out!
I should have dropped this comic a while ago, really. But how do you drop Superman? He’s the first superhero, you know? Regardless, I eventually found my wits and took this off of my pull-list. I was less than impressed with what was supposed to be a DC flagship title. I’m giving this book one star.
Scott Snyder has written my favorite Batman. Period. Snyder’s take on the inner-workings of Batman’s mind go above and beyond anything else I’ve read on the character. What’s more is he and the art team of Greg Capullo, Jonathon Glapion, and FCO Plascencia have managed to make Gotham into more than just a setting, but into Batman’s greatest confidant and greatest enemy. I give this comic 4 stars!
I don’t want to do this review. Seriously. I had really high hopes for this comic. And those hopes were drug out into the street and shot. This comic gets two stars . . .
Kara Zor-El, I’m sorry, Supergirl, has it made in Post-52 DC. No, she’s not rich and her life hasn’t been easy and she’s been hassled and pretty much had her ass kicked since the get-go. But in less than a year she already has a rogues gallery that rivals her cousin’s. And we all know it’s the villains who make the hero. Despite being attacked almost monthly by a new baddie Kara has made two new friends without learning English. The comic isn’t without problems but it’s a fun read. I give it 3 stars!
