  1. As much as I am for seeing him slap the taste out of Kenny Omega's mouth, short term deals and one-off appearances are just as enticing.
  2. Action Comics #127: Fun Tommy Tomorrow back-up. Adventure Comics #309-315: As always, the Legion of Super-Hero stories are fun diversions from reality. Adventure Comics #435-437: The prelude to Aquaman: The Death of a Prince, and it is not gelling with me Batman / Fortnite: Zero Point #1: Not for me, but people are seeming to like it. Batman Black & White #5 (2021): All around wonderful issue with great opening and closing stories. (They're both about Robins, so I'm on-brand here.) Batman: The Jiro Kuwata Batmanga #1-3: Lord Death Man is. Batman: The Long Hall
  3. Interesting topic idea! I'll add Reservoir Dogs and The Shawshank Redemption. Almost said Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, but then I remembered Nimoy directed Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
  4. Karate Kid II is probably my favorite of the original three, mostly because they're building on the Daniel / Miyagi relationship while reveling more about the mentor's past. There's a ton of world-building going on, and there's so much love and respect between the characters. Part three is so odd. It feels like two or three movies smashed together and set in a Karate Kid framework.
  5. And I hate to say it, but it was Kirby's Hunger Dogs book. 😱
  6. No joke, just the other day I started reading one of these mid-80s DC graphic novels and I had to give up.
  7. What?! No! Fuck! Rest well, Derrick.
  8. Valentino is such a crapshoot for me, but, admittedly, I've read very little of his work. Recently, though, I can say his Image X Month issue of Youngblood was nothing more than him having a moan about Hollywood, What If...? #3 is rudderless, What If...? #5 is a love letter to the classic Avengers, and What If...? #7 is an of-its-time Wolverine collaboration with Rob Liefeld. It seems like he sometimes needs a writing partner to firm up his ideas.
  9. Via various tweets, New Gods writer / director Ava DuVernay has confirmed DC / WB is heading in a different direction with the characters. No news from DC / WB though.
  10. Superman #423 & Action Comics #583 (What Ever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow): Classic for a reason. Adventure Comics #305-308: More Legion of Super-Hero stories. It was good to come back to them after a month-long break Adventures of Superman #451-453 and Superman #28-29-30: More exciting chapters in the Exile storyline. Superman is finally off in space, but cannot find peace. Adventures of Superman Annual #1: Read to fill in a pre-Exile gap. Discovered this was Dan Jurgens' first Superman story. All-New Wolverine #1-35, Annual #1, and Generations: Wolverine & All
  11. What about his hand in the creation of the Spider-Slayers? Did that ever come out?
  12. - The Sound of Music - Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country - Dracula 2000 (or Up, if you're okay with animation)
  13. I say this with all earnestness: I'm glad you're getting enjoyment out of that series, because it went sour for me around the fourth issue. The idea is solid, don't get me wrong, but the execution and landing did not work at all for me. And the whole series pretty much made one of my favorite characters nuclear for the next five or so years.
  14. Action Comics #1: Stone cold classic. Action Comics #300-304: The era of The Legion of Super-Heroes back-ups begins. So much fun. Adventures of Superman #445-450 and Superman #23-27: These are the lead-up issues to the Superman story called "Exile," a story I read in my youth and want to revisit. They do an amazing job setting up Superman as an unstable, dangerous threat to anyone around him. On top of that, the creators build up the supporting cast in amazing detail. From Cat's alcoholism to Jose's near-reckless urge to walk once more, there are characters here that I've fallen in l
