First Impressions Double-Shot (9/9 & 9/16)

A total of 14 books came home on Wednesday (half of which were from last week). Click below for First Impressions :

9/9/09 Releases

Kick-Ass #7 – “I got Kevlar down to my Underoos, dickhead.” Gotta love Hit-Girl.

Red Robin #4 – Please, please, please DC, you need to keep Tim Drake in this role for a while. And finally something from Final Crisis ties in….still doesn’t make sense, but it’s there :-)

Blackest Night : Batman #2 – Damian in an armory, that’s one place I would keep that kid far, far away from.

Green Lantern Corps #40 – When did Salaak become such a bad-ass?

Secret Six #13 – Consistently DC’s best book right now. If you’re a fan of villains, you should be reading this. The scene where Scandal gives the henchmen 30 seconds to pray or call their loved ones before slaughtering them is brilliant.

Superman : World of New Krypton #7 – So… Kryptonians have to wear oxygen masks in space or not? Just curious because it seems kind if inconsistent.. In the beginning of the issue, Superman flies from Earth to New Krypton without one, then at the end he needs one?

9/16/09 Releases

Blackest Night #3 – OK, I’ve been reading comics for waaaaaay too long when I can read these lines of dialog : “The ring has the same porous structure as bones or dark matter : the unseen skeletal structure of the universe. It’s laced with microscopic wormholes that are channeling some kind of energy to who knows where…who knows why.” …and think to myself : Of course, this makes perfect sense.

Batman & Robin #4 – Why do I get the feeling that Jason Todd is not under the new Red Hood?

Transformers : All Hail Megtron #15 – Two great stories after the last lackluster issue. There is some sinister stuff going on in the ranks of the Autobots that I hope they get into in the new ongoing Transformers series

Batman : Streets of Gotham #4 – I’m loving the new take on Mr. Zsasz, and who ever thought that a real estate broker could be an interesting character??

Jason, may I suggest that Kryptonians are wearing the masks not for breathing, but for talking. Otherwise they wouldn't be able to hear each other.

Jeff : I did not think of that at all. I retract my previous concern :-)
