    Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

    Having seen it last night, this is definitely near the top for me. I didn't leave the theater feeling an extreme high like I did with the first two Raimi films, so it's not gone up past them for me, but in terms of writing and theme, it's easily the strongest Spidey film since the Raimi era. Better than everything since, and it's not even close. What's great is that the story isn't just a pat message on "Miles is good enough to be Spider-Man", but a more identifiable story about manifesting one's own control over who they want to be. The film's also quite a bit darker than I was anticipating, which is a good thing as Spider-Man needs to have a dark quality to the franchise to keep it grounded in the pathos that his origin stems from. As kid-friendly and comedic as this movie got, it had a great tonal balance that keeps you caring and reflects the humanity of the characters. Basically, the stakes are higher than "kid Avenger loses his super-suit". This also has the best soundtrack of all the films, and the best Stan Lee cameo since Spider-Man 3.

    Superman #6 (2018): I don't really care about any of the Zod/Rogol/Krypton stuff, but Bendis' voice for Clark, Reis' artwork and the ending keeping me returning to this book. Miles Morales: Spider-Man #1(2018): This was enjoyable. A decent first issue serving as an introduction to the character for the uninitiated. There must've been some time skip, because Miles is depicted like he's about 16 years old. Amazing Spider-Man #812: Good comics. Trade Paperbacks: 21 Single Issues: 275

    LOL facts. I actually thought the first part was the best, and while none of the succeeding parts were bad the Supergirl one was the most shmaltzy IMO. But Amell and Gustin made a terrific double-act, with the two of them selling every comedic moment thrown to them. And while this might not have ended up as proficient as Crisis on Earth X, I think this is my favorite just on the enjoyment factor alone.

    Detective Comics #994: Ooh, this was pretty good. Kind of an old fashioned mystery with decent gum-cracking thrills. Batman and the Justice League: A four-chapter manga by Shiori Teshirogi. A Japanese boy travels to Gotham to learnt he secret behind his parent's disappearance. Along the way he runs into Batman, the Joker and Lex Luthor. The start of what had better be continued, I always love Japanese renditions of superheroes. Its always an engaging exercise of character creativity. Trade Paperbacks: 21 Single Issues: 272

    X-Men Red #11: I haven't been keeping track (might try to do it next year) but I have to say, it's a crying shame that this book as been canceled. Like, this was seriously one of the best X-Books I have read in years and, considering Blue and Yellow were so wonderful, that says something. I could have read this for years but I'll just settle for 11 consistently good issues and an annual. I'm highly interested in how the resolution will work out in the X-Universe/How it will be forgotten for the next few years until some writer ignores it because they need a villain for their story.

    The Supergirl episode was easily the best of the three, and did a tidy job of wrapping things up -- which, as noted above, I was worried about. Kara's speech to Alex was the emotional highlight, just beating out Ollie's to The Monitor. Tyler Hoechlin played a brilliant evil Superman, and his normal Superman is absolutely perfect. Was this crossover the first appearance of Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane? She totally gets that character. Ollie is definitely going to take Barry and Kara's place as the big deaths in COIE next year.

    It was a fun crossover. Of the three crossovers, I'd put it in the middle. Still fun but everything still felt like it could have used an extra half of an episode. Going for Crisis next year feels pretty ballsy but I'm there for it. Assuming Batwoman gets picked up and Green Arrow doesn't end this season, I can see five nights for the crossover.

    This came into my mind when watching an episode of Superman: The Animated Series a few years ago. (It hit my "on this day" page on Facebook today.) When cranes randomly break and fall off buildings in Metropolis (for Superman to catch) why hasn't OSHA been doing the proper workplace safety inspections? What about the city building safety inspectors? Imagine the lawsuits over this.
