Green Lantern Corps #2 – Interesting story here, but very disjointed. I dn’t think Gibbons and Gleason are well matched, because this is where both of them are weakest – connecting the narrative (Gibbons) and having the storytelling flow naturally (Gleason). If Gibbons were pencilling himself, for instance, it’d be a lot easier to follow the action and esp. the scene changes. While a different writer would be easier to follow generally. But it’s not boring, like some of Gibbons’ previous work, so I’m still on board.
The Escapist #1 – The first Kavalier and Clay tie-in comic I’ve read; I like that it’s behind the scenes instead of trying to just do the classic “K&C” run from the “40’s”, because how could anyone make it as good as Chabon described it? The art is lovely, if a little spare.
Y - TLM #whatever – Great issue – I love seeing this side of Dr. Mann, given that she’d been pretty one-note through the series. Although I think Vaguhan could have come up with a better end to the relationship than simply Ali’s gf being a LUG.
The Thing #8 – Sweet way to go out. Didn’t like the resolution to the Ben/Alicia/Arlo triangle because it cut through all the good stuff Slott did with that in prior issues. I’d rather he left it alone so he or someone else could return to it when the market was more forgiving instead of resolving what had been a pretty well crafted subplot in two panels. I’m going to miss this book.
Runaways #18 – Golly.
