First Impressions – 7/22/2009

Due to some budgetary concerns I had to leave a few books at the store (Supergirl, Gotham City Sirens, Atomic Robo) but I should be able to grab them next week. Here are the First Impressions of the rest :

Green Lantern #44 – Good stuff and a great line from Black Lantern Martian Manhunter as he picks up a Firehouse to throw: “I’m as powerful as Superman. Why does everyone forget that?”

Final Crisis : Legion of Three Worlds #5 – I can’t think of a better ending, very well done. Also, Starman steals the show with this Gauntlet reference while standing in line at a fast food restaurant : “Warrior needs food badly!”

Blackest Night : Tales of the Corps #2 - The Bleez story was interesting and so was the Carol Ferris piece. The Blume story was a little dull though. Overall, not bad.

Transformers : All Hail Megatron #13 – Did Starscream just reference the 1985 Transformers animated movie?? “I’d just ceremoniously jettison his (Megatron’s) body out the airlock if I didn’t have a nagging feeling that he’d somehow return, even more powerful than before.” Yes, he did.

Power Girl #3 – Just the comments from the inmates as Power Girl walks through Blackgate Prison are worth it. We get such gems as “Cupcakes!”, “I love it that they never wear pants.”, Conjugal, anyone?” and my personal favorite…. “Wanna put you in a fridge!”

GI Joe #7 – Hellooooooo Cover Girl. Way to make an entrance. Ladies, want to impress a guy? Save him from drowning, then stand there all wet in a swimsuit that’s barely there. Works like a charm.

Reviews coming later…..
