So what the fuck is happening with the JSA in Doomsday Clock?
Doctor Manhatten altered the DC metaverse (the main DC universe which all other universes are derived from or something?). He moves Alan Scott's green lantern out of his reach, killing him so the JSA and Legion of Superheroes never form.

At least Doc's Flash cover is bangin', and features the big space weirdo from Sideways.


Has anybody read the Flash/Speed Buggy issue from last year? It's from the same creative team.
Yup. It was actually fun in how weird it was. Looked like shit, of course.

For a one issue flashback cameo, it looks like. That reads like the full return's still a way off. I dunno if I'd want Snyder behind it either.

I'm not even a Wally West stan or anything, but Lobdell/Booth on the (hopefully) retcon-HiC-out-as-quickly-as-possible book has to be trolling or something on DC's part, right? At least the Shaner cover is nice.

Yuck at that Wally creative team.

Whats the general consensus for Fraction's X-Men run? Remeber enjoying it when I read it except for the Greg Land art and want to now if it was actually good or i was just new to comics at the time.
It has its moments. There’s a great Emma Frost story he did in an annual with Daniel acuna. And one steampunk science time travel story by Daniel acuna

maybe not, but one can hope. I don't really see how much they can do with the character going forward if HiC isn't retconned out
Why, he finds redemption in the cosmos, of course!
Heck. A bunch of the heroes already forgave him in the last issue.
edit: and the way Sanctuary reopened with people somehow willing to go after all that says to me that the world doesn't care too much. No justice for Lagoon Boy!

I think the idea is that they're gonna make Wally a really REALLY good boy to make up for what he did. Like him killing a dozen people is just a speed bump to being the Best Hero Ever or something lol.
Can you no longer view upcoming releases on CMX? I noticed they're not on a bunch of DC series I was looking at.
Not sure how far out you're looking, DC seems to only show up to maybe the next month's release and it's been that way for a good while. Don't know why they don't put things up as soon as solicits hit.

I'm just seeing this. Isn't this literally one of the joke creative teams we made up in past threads where we made the worst teams we could think of? Sure sounds like one of them. This... this is brutal. Which one of you made a deal with Satan? I hope you got something good out of it.
Uhh

Hahaha what is going on today??

Looks like it's less than a month now. Maybe even just two weeks. Can't see future issues on Female Furies, Wonder Twins, Deathstroke, or a few others I looked at.
Lobdell has seemed to leak a plan for various DC/Image crossovers
Show me.

I don't think anyone posted this, Jason Latour is doing a YotV Lex one-shot in September.
Huh, is this Latour's first writing work at DC? Should be interesting.

Immortal fuckin’ Hulk. What a book.

Silver Surfer Black ruled too, some of the best art I’ve seen all year so far. Tradd Moore absolutely killed and Donny has a good voice for Surfer, even if I’m not thrilled by the direction the last two pages took

Damn. He's really burning bridges with DC. Bet Jim's not happy.

Guys,
WE'RE GOING BACK TO KEY HOUSE!!!
Fuck YES
The thing that was always going to happen jumping from handheld to full on 3D pokemon on next gen hardware happened. They're not doing all 800+ pokemon. People are shitting themselves in entitlement.
800 Pokemon is a lot of fucking Pokemon. Nintendo will probably do them all eventually, but before the release of Sword and Shield is impossible.
Probably one of the most terrifying endings to an Immortal Hulk issue yet
Immortal Hulk is absolutely one of the best books being published. Will probably be the best after Giant Days ends.
Thoughts on the Hulk run by Loeb? Omnibus released and curious. It follows World War Hulk right?
I thought it was decent. There are some bits that are silly. But overall it's a readable series.

I really want to love Batman and the Outsiders, it has all the elements to be great, but it just isn't grabbing me. I hope it gets better. It should be better.

Remember when Gran Turismo first came to PS3 and 2/3s of the cars used old PS2 models? Do that for the new Pokemon and everyone would have been happy!

In Amazing Spider-Man, does MJ remember the whole deal with Mephisto thing? Does Peter? I haven’t read it so I don’t fully know the circumstances around the deal.

Does literally anyone remember that Mephisto is supposed to be in prison and not running around going as normal

It's seems Aaron is the only one to remember probably because he's a Ghost Rider dude so he has to

It's gets ridiculous that there's not even an explanation for all this

In the marvel universe mephisto magic made it so that it was basically a combination of Stark, Strange and Reed using magic technology bullshit to erase everyone's memory

No one should remember it except our mysterious villain

Ottley's art feels just slightly off to me in ASM. The moments that are supposed to be emotional are anything but.

It's a stretch but that last page makes me think the Kindred theory could work. There's thematics there that I think Spencer is pointing everything towards.

Why does DC hate Wally? Dude has been getting screwed over since Barry came back.

ask me about my ultron agenda
My guess is we’re finally getting the return of Hank Pym. The Avengers game had me thinking about whether we would actually get a return.

I would hope he doesn’t write Wally like Jason.

Also, if there's anything from Boom besides Coda, By Night, and Giant Days, please let me know.

Unnatural if you like furries.

Also looks like Isola #9 is the beginning of the end.

Olwyn and Rook stray from the path to Isola at great cost. NOW BI-MONTHLY!
Why do they act as if bi-monthly isn't a death knell?

Does Peter not remember it either then? For some reason I thought they both knew about the arrangement.

Is Morrison's New X-Men run COMPLETELY standalone and completely new reader friendly? I am debating whether to get the New X-Men omnibus (despite my dislike for some of the art) or the Thor by Simonson Omnibus, which I've heard is ridiculously dense, but I do love Simonson's art and it's one of the cases where I think the recoloring looks great.

other than being set in Gotham and having the word "monster" in the title they really have nothing in common as books
Oh I know, one just reminded me of the other.
