I’ve been reading and watching all sorts of interesting things in the wake of Christmas and my birthday. Here’s the cream of the crop.
Deadpool: I love Deadpool, especially when a page turn involves, “Hail Hydra! I mean… STOP TRYING TO DECAPITATE MY PAL!” That’s right, friends: the triumphant return of Bob, Agent of Hydra! Well, maybe not so triumphant.
Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps are still two of my favorites, despite some questionable moves. I’m a romantic at heart, but I don’t believe that two characters should be together just because they are opposite genders and in the same book. Nevertheless, Kyle Rayner and Soranik Natu’s command to fall in love (Really, the Star Sapphires and their Love Lantern hoodoo confuses me. Sometimes it’s cool, but at others it’s only good because it) adds well to the drama of the Guardians’ decree that members of the GL Corps are forbidden from romantic relationships. But the Red Lantern story is still cool. How can you not enjoy something that involves a guy called “Atrocitus”?
