New Comic Day 11.18.2009

Middling week, I guess I'd have to call it. Excited to see Flash: Rebirth get rolling again.

Dr. Horrible (One-Shot)

Writer: Zack Whedon
Penciller: Joelle Jones
Colorist: Dan Jackson
Cover Artist: Kristian Donaldson

OK, how cool is that? And, remember....the hammer is his penis.

Batman: Streets of Gotham #6

Written by Chris Yost
Co-feature written by Marc Andreyko
Art by Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs
Co-feature art by Jeremy Haunn
Cover by Dustin Nguyen

Total truth...this story has done absolutely nothing for me. Dini is the draw here, can't wait until he's back.

The Brave and the Bold #29

Written by J. Michael Straczynski
Art and cover by Jesus Saiz

You had me at "Brother Power The Geek." I really hope Straczynski doesn't screw this up, because some of those bizarre DC Comics 60's/70's creations need some love. How about "Prez" next?

The Flash; Rebirth #5 (of 6)

Written by Geoff Johns
Art and covers by Ethan Van Sciver

Ok, excited to get back into this, but, that being said, the delays on this title have only pointed out that it's kind of irrelevant. This does not feel like a Flash story that "needed" to be told, especially not as a premium-priced special-event mini-series. It's a GOOD flash story, don't get me wrong, this could EASILY have been the first arc in a new Flash ongoing, and I'd have been very happy. It was clearly modled on the Green Lantern: Rebirth series, with the same creative team, even, but that level of retcon was not needed. Barry Allen was back as Flash, Grant Morrison took care of that in Final Crisis. We didn't really need any more.

The Stand: Soul Surviviors #2 (of 5)

COVER BY: Lee Bermejo
WRITER: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
PENCILS: Mike Perkins
INKS: Mike Perkins
COLORED BY: Laura Martin
LETTERED BY: VC - Rus Wooton

So, the Marvel adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand continues. You either love this story, or don't. I do. I think it's the best thing King's ever done. The best thing I can say about this series, or set of series, as it were, is that they are getting the story right.
