Whew...finally back in the saddle for a week.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #569: This is the second issue of the arc I was eagerly waiting for. So far, it hasn't disappointed. Everything seems to be tying together nicely, except for one REALLY nagging point. How does Norman Osborn not remember who Spider-Man is? That nasty question aside, this was entertainment and that's the highest compliment that can possibly paid to ASM at this point. Thumbs up!

FINAL CRISIS: ROGUES' REVENGE #2: Geoff Johns knocks it out of the park again, but that's nothing new. All of the plot points surrounding the many different players start to come together and I very much like Zoom's motivation for training Inertia and everything therein. But the best part of the issue is definitely the Rogues taking the goofball wannabes from Gotham Underground to school. Thumbs WAY up!

FINAL CRISIS: SUPERMAN BEYOND 3D #1: And on the other end of the spectrum, there's...this. I have no freakin' clue what this was supposed to be. A major disappointment, because I felt that Grant Morrison had a pretty good handle on Superman after hearing so much praise for All-Star. This was such a mess and the "art" gave me a migraine. Thumbs WAY down!

TEEN TITANS #62: Call it morbid curiosity, but I just HAD to see the official comic book take on Wendy, Marvin, and Wonderdog. And I liked it...until the end. Then it turned into a collective middle finger for anyone that grew up with those characters. Sure, they were cheesy as hell, but they deserve MUCH better treatment than...THAT! Thumbs WAY down!

TRINITY #13: Ok, seeing Superman with a bit of an edge towards the CSA is pretty cool. And I'll admit, I'm a bit intrigued as to the nature of Enigma. The guesses that he was a part of Earth-3 might not be too far off, after all. One thing's for sure, my boredom has been tempered...for the moment. Thumbs mildly up.

That's it for me this week. Missed out on the Secret Invasion tie-ins (including Black Panther), so feel free to pile on, as always.

I guess part of the One More Day fallout is that NOBODY remembers that Spider-Man is Peter Parker. It's kind of confusing, because Peter refers to the deal with Mephisto, but he shouldn't be aware of it. Hopefully they figure out a way to get that to make sense.

I'm loving New Ways to Die, by the way.

I will just ditto It's False's opinions on "Rouge's Revenge" and "Superman Beyond."

However, I will offer that Brad Meltzer's "Last Will and Testament" was another great read that came out this week and it was *very* disappointing to read the Superman book on the heels of RR and LW&T because I was on such a comic high and that brought me to a screeching halt and pretty much made my head hurt (3-D art aside).

Back to LW&T: Geo-Force is one of my fave "B" or "C" list DC heroes going back to his Batman & the Outsiders days so I was ecstatic when Meltzer included him in JLA and he shows his personal affinity for the character here as well as settles a score from stories done a long time ago. The story really elevated the character and hopefully demonstrated to those who aren't necessarily fans why he's good enough of a character to be in the JLA.

Well worth the money and hey, it's one of the Kubert's on art? I had heard they had signed an exclusive with DC but I haven't seen anything from them in what? years ;-)

I like Meltzer's writing, but I'd like to see him writing something without always using his 1980s favorite from his youth.

Forgot to mention these two:

Justice Society of America #18: I am liking this storyline, but think it's ultimately going to read much better to those of you who will read it in one sitting or in trade format. Things happen, but it still seems like all that's happened is that Gog has wandered the jungle healing people. Nice art and I like where it's going, but will be glad when it really feels like something has happened as opposed to one long jungle walk.

Guerillas #1: I'm torn on this. I liked it and am interested to see where it goes based on the ending but it feels weird paying $5.99 an issue for what will be a 9-issue mini. It's true that it has enough pages to be two regular sized issues, but I see that $5.99 pice tag and it gives me pause with gas prices the way they are even though I'm getting my money's worth as far as page count goes (I think). It's weird. I'll definitely pick up the 2nd issue, but it's going to have to be really good to get me to pick up the next 7. I hate to spoil the ending, but knowing sort of what the book would be about is what got me to pick it up in the first place. (http://www.imagecomics.com/schedule.php?d=20080827#6972)

Geo-Force was always one of my favorites too. Was it ever explained why he is not in JLA anymore, or did I miss something?

Geo-Force was "traded" to the Outsiders when Batman (and Chuck Dixon) took over the team.

Okay, thanks. I knew I should have read that series. So did the JL get anything in this trade, or was it for cash and a hero to be named later? ; )

They got to not have Geo-Force on their team anymore. *rimshot*

I think they got Roy, unofficially (wait, that was beforehand) um, no, I think they just wanted more of the original line up from the Outsiders on the team. Looker, of all people, has made multiple appearances in the past months.
