Punisher 9 Preview. Jigsaw sank a new low. |
Wow, out of all the death and violence I seen Marvel do, why do seeing a marvel villian perform this act of drowning kittens disturb me even more and want to seriously see Frank blast his head off.

When Alan Moore was crap (Spawn/WildCATs, Part 1)|
Continuing the look through the sub-par stories Alan Moore produced during his mid-90s slump...
You've seen the rest*, now see the worst.
This.. I'm not sure how to describe this mini-series. I really wanted to like it. Moore's run on the WildCATs series proper, which I'd read before this, is genuinely good stuff, so I know he the ability to turn out good stories using these characters. However, I ended up really disappointed. This story isn't just bad by Moore standards. It's bad by anyone's standards, and mind-bogglingly so. Normally, even when a Moore story is bad, it's still original or distinct. Whatever else, he's never generic. A voice always shows through. This series, in contrast, is the very definition of generic.
There are plenty of Alan Moore work I've never read, but even so, I'd feel pretty safe betting that this is the worst thing he's ever written professionally. I mean, this is the sort of thing where, if it was written by a new writer, you'd do your hardest to avoid any future works by the guy because there is so little skill apparent here that you'd be positive the person's a lost cause. It's almost comforting in its way: The knowledge that Moore is really is just as capable as anyone else of scripting utterly uninspired schlock B-movie dialogue on an off day.
*Well, I skipped the Fire From Heaven crossover because I'd forgotten about it and didn't remember until I'd already begun composing this entry.

Team up with old friends.|
The Best of DC - Blue Ribbon Digest #18 (1981) is a 100 pages-comic full of Teen Titans stories and offers a nice little short story, in which the New Teen Titans team up with their old friends Speedy and Aqualad.
Together they go up against some drug smuggler... maybe not as mind-blowing as battling against gods, Brother Blood or Deathstroke, but hey, it's a team up with a classic 1980's 'Don't Do Drugs'-lesson.
Gar is a bit busy, though...

Detective skills for super-heroes|
See, this sequence is the sort of thing I would like to see Batman stories emphasise more. Observation and deduction are skills essential to solving mysteries and catching criminals. You don't see much of this lately, partly because it's harder for the writer to come up with than fight scenes and gore, but also because CSI-type gadgetry and doubletalk has taken over. One great aspect of the Doc Savage pulps was that (having been trained since infancy by experts),he was a multi-skilled genius with Olympic-level physical prowess ("Sherlock Holmes in the body of Hercules"). In one story, he ran up stairs with a full-grown man under each arm, then glanced into a ransacked room and could tell it had been searched twice-- because spilled liquids which dry at different rates were equally gelled. (This is one reason his fans say, "Doc Savage: adventure hero or THE adventure hero?").
This sequence is from Marvel's black & white DOC SAVAGE magazine, second issue from October 1975. Story by Doug Moench, art by Tony DeZuniga. Most of the story is a wild yarn about a huge cavern civilization of Reptilian people, a Mad Viking, lost treasure, that sort of thing. But to learn about this, the Man of Bronze casually shows some impressive detective ability. It's exactly the sort of engimatic clue that Lester Dent used to toss around in the pulps. What is that strange coin?

Eye for an eye|
In my Previous post Karate Kid died. The posted cover is from that issue. The following post is his wife's (Princess Projectra) reaction. (5 pages of 25)
Reading back through this original version of the Legion I remembered something that is missing from the later incarnations.
This LSH grew up from a gang of kids to seasoned adult heroes. Don't get me wrong, I believe that all the later reboots had
moments of merit and I enjoyed them. But this version had the history to back up the stories.
