Sejic is on twitch right now drawing a piece of art inspired by his storyline Harleen and Isley books....



Man of the people.

Joker pulling Harley, Bramble pulling Ivy.

This feels good given the Harley and Ivy stuff today. He did say that it's leading to this, but it's a long build.

So he says DC wanted him to keep doing Harleen but he needs Isley to make it work. But there will be two more Harleen arcs the 2nd being the ending. Also Catwoman is probably involved now.

This is if DC approves it all.

He said if he gets the green light on Isley he can start this year.

Got the full Starman by Robinson run in singles on eBay for $45. Very happy with that.



Granted, I had the vast majority of it in the standard-size omnis already, but still. Cool to have these.


Edit: Man, looking through some of these issues, and I was reminded how amazing the series started.

This is the first four pages of the series for anybody who hasn't read it:

Wtf. I only have omnis 1&2. I didn’t even think a complete original run could be a lot cheaper.

It's great if you are okay with team books that don't take themselves super seriously. It actually occasionally has some really good storytelling moments, but it's mostly Seinfeld with superheroes. I loved it personally.

I hadn't seen it that cheap before. I was surprised. Typically it's over $100.
I'm now looking at complete sets of Starman, including the extra issues.

Couple things:
-Amazon destroyed my Sunstone Deluxe #1 in a bubble mailer.
-I received my first Masterworks today. I love this format and quality and wish they would reprint series.
-I also received all 3 Invincible compendiums and I was not prepared for so much book.

Fuck man. I'm sorry about Sunstone.

Yeah, sadly Amazon is hoarding all Volume 1's of Sunstone. I can pick up Volume 2 from a number of different sources (IST). Looking forward to it. It's funny...I purchased another item at the same time, hoping they would ship in the same package to avoid the bubble mailer. They shipped in two seperate bubble mailers.

OK. War Games. In which the “Worlds Greatest Detective“ doesn’t realize
he‘s standing next to black mask who has made himself look like Orpheus using “face putty” and is imitating his voice.

there‘s suspension of disbelief and there’s...that

In case anyone's planning to make an IST purchase over the weekend, there will be a 3% off code that goes live Friday at 12:01 AM. The code is GetOnTheLoveOmniBus. It'll expire Sunday, February 16 at 11:59 pm. It does not stack with the 2% loyalty discount.

Again, InStockTrades discount code for 3% off for the weekend! Care of OmniBros Live and The Omnibus Collectors Network.

I knew basically nothing going into Mister Miracle and I loved it and had no trouble knowing what was going on. It’s really new reader friendly imo. Did you accidentally read Miracleman instead?
You don't though? I mean, I read that only knowing the very basics about scott and the new gods that I got through osmosis and understood what's going on. In fact I think it's better if you go in fresh, Miracle Man's characterisation of the new gods was very off from what I read later (although you can argue it's on purpose). What are you confused about?

If you haven't, try out These Savage Shores. It's a short and great miniseries
Yeah, I meant Mister Miracle. There's all this stuff with Darkseid that seems to be the heart of this stuff, characters dropping in, referencing Darkseid, a dark event. They don't explain it. Ant man drops by and beats the shit out of Mister Miracle for some reason. The art is gorgeous, but I am so confused about what is going on. It seems like to me its something that you really needed to have read the previous comics.

Oh shit

SICK
I suspect Azzarello wrote something that's bad and terrible, and DC don't want to publish bad and terrible books, so they're trying to rework it, but I mean, the book was about Black Canary's shitty ex-boyfriend, maybe there's nothing there to salvage.
And here I thought it had been cancelled all together because why do a limited prestige series and then a regular series

Because why would I want that bullshit?
Oh boy
Phew, that's not exactly an inspiring collection of writers. Hopefully it means Williamson is finally leaving Flash...
Why would it?

There's really nothing you need to have read prior to Mister Miracle. Like Robin said, the characterization was completely different in that book over others.

I think the things you need to know is
1) Darkseid lords over the fourth world in a god like manner
2) The New Gods (the human characters) either support his rule or don’t. Those that do don’t like Scott
3) Big Barda is Scott’s wife

It does reward you for reading the old Kirby Fourth World stuff with the narration boxes ripped right out of them, and stuff like Funky Flashman turning from a critical spoof of Stan Lee to a loving one.

For now just give New Gods wiki articles a good read. Find out who Highfather, Orion, Granny Goodness and all them are broadly.

It doesn't necessarily mean that, but frankly...it's time.
I’ve been feeling this for a minute
because I desperately want someone new writing that book and cling to any glimpse of hope I see
Goddamn tim it’s not that bad
I’m kind of ready for someone new as well but I’m also still enjoying Willamson’s run and don’t have anyone in mind as someone I’d like to see take over.
What about Jeff Lemire as his unnamed big two solo ongoing?

look I loved Birds of Prey, but I love Emo Harley Quinn even more and James Gunn seems like he's gonna deliver that, and now I'm really hot for The Suicide Squad

So someone on Twitter said the new Batman's batsymbol is made from the gun that killed his parents and true or not I really think we should just cancel the DC universe now.

Wowo, that seems like an incredible deal man. Great pickup!
Sejic was there for us.

Dang. Harley and Ivy look gorgeous here. Way better than I'm used to from Sejic. Joker and Bramble look like what I expect tho so I dunno what's going on. Maybe it's his teeth.

It's because he did most of the work on Harley and Ivy. The rest aren't finished. Harley and Ivy aren't even done lol

This is going to be outside of Morrison's work. I think this is better than cramming the monthly book full of secondary stories and charging $10 for it.
