Let’s finish off the weekend with a look at the week that was and the things that are happening in the Geekery world.
Oliver travels to Metropolis to confront Lex Luthor in Green Arrow and General Zod’s end game is revealed as his revenge squad battles Team Superman in Action Comics. Plus, more reviews!
I may be behind on my comic book reading, but that won’t stop me from picking up another batch of books today!
Oliver Queen makes it to our nation’s capital, which allows the ol’ lefty to come out, and he gets to team up with Wonder Woman.
On the trail of the Ninth Circle to get his life back in order, Green Arrow Oliver Queen runs up into another hero who’s not so happy to see him, leading to a collaboration with The Flash.
The Man of Steel is still dealing with the ramifications of what Mxyzptlk did to him, both in Superman and Trinity, while Green Arrow deal with villains who want to reshape Seattle into something else, into someplace else.
In today’s edition, the New Super-Man of China continues to explore his growing abilities, with a little help from the original. Over in Gotham, Black Canary expands her Canary Cry in Batgirl and the Birds of Prey.
Batman comes to visit Superman on the farm, and nothing good ever comes of that. Plus, the reunion between Green Arrow and Arsenal gives us more of their history within the new DC Comics universe.
Family reunions are a big theme in today’s edition, as we take a look at the first issue of Jeff Lemire’s new book, Royal City, which focuses on a writer returning home after his father has a stroke. The second review looks at the latest issue of Green Arrow (a character Lemire used to write), where Oliver Queen reunites with his former ward, Roy Harper, for the first time in a long time.
When your life span covers decades of stories, a writer looking to do something new might try out a relationship from out of left field to try and shock readers. Or sometimes, the couplings just don’t mix well and it forces you to say “WTF?” when you read it.
