And love dares you...

Green Arrow and Black Canary #3
I'm not going to spoil it or anything, but I will say that
Rachelle summed things up perfectly : "Congratulations, Judd Winick. You've ruined Christmas."

Green Lantern #25
The only DCU book published in 2007 that seems like it was made by the same company that publishes All Star Superman. Well done.

That is all.

For now.

Hmmm, a good Geoff Johns comic? Truly the end is nigh.

Also, a bad Judd Winick comic? Truly it must be, uh, Monday.

Dylan - Haha! Gold.

Dylan = not a fan of the "weird Jeffs", Geoff Johns or Jeph Loeb. Still waiting to see what the fuss is about.

I can't speak for all of Geoff Johns' work (and I will say he's got a real tendency, especially in GL, to get very fanboy), but I think he's more hit than miss. When they collect this Sinestro Corps War all up in trades (which is very, very soon) I'd say it's definitely worth checking out.
As to Loeb, I really feel like his return to Marvel is part of a plan to bring the company down from the inside.

Oh, also, no matter how bad the writing or the story, there is no way I can bring myself to call any comic drawn by Cliff Chiang "bad". His artwork used to look good to me, but now I find it simply irresistible.

Chiang's great, although I get him and Marcos Martin - who is also the rad - mixed up.

The plan to bring Marvel down goes deeper than Loeb, unfortunately. I'm planning an intervention for the House Of Ideas. I just can't watch him destroy himself like this anymore.

If it weren't for the glory of the Immortal Iron Fist I'd be done with Marvel forever, but likae a battered wife, I keep coming back.
