Comics of the Week (8/13/08)

Legion of Super-Heroes in the 31st Century #17 - another so-so issue. This book jumps around between the younger LSH and older ones, as the show did. Not sure I like that. I hear the book is going to be cancelled soon anyway now that the show is off. Oh well.

Final Crisis: Revelations #1 (of 5) - this mini series focus on the Spectre during the huge events going on. This first issue flowed well as the spirit of vengeance goes after those who killed the Martian Manhunter. A good, solid issue - and clearly much easier to follow than the main Final Crisis book. Glad my shop pulled it for me (I didn't have it on my order list but will be picking up the remaining issues after this first one).

Trinity #11 - the story continues to move forward at a great pace, building this into a huge epic with a large tapestry across the DCU. This, Grant Morrison, is how to write a major event. Not the cryptic, mumbo-jumbo, vagueness that you are putting into Final Crisis, sir.

Booster Gold #11 - Chuck Dixon steps into the writing spot for a two issue arc of the title. There is a time anomaly in the past of the Dynamic Duo, and Booster has to come to the rescue. Will he straighten things out or make them worse? I so love time travel stories as the writers really can have fun with the possibilities. Still one of the best monthlies out there, IMHO.
