Has anyone has ever said something similar about another character's murdered loved ones. Would anyone say this to Commissioner Gordon about how he couldn't protect Sara and Barbara from the Joker?

Wally West once shouted to Batman: "I'm getting lectured on child safety from a man who's gone through four Robins?"

So, I missed my window to post this when Sir Terry Pratchett passed on, and I missed another window on Terry Pratchett day. But this graphic novel was burning a hole in my shelf, just waiting to be shared with the world, so, um...Summer of Discworld?...ah, buggrit, just see what you think.

These were originally published separately, but are being taken chapter by chapter from the collected hardback. Be forewarned, I'm going to narrating the bits in between the scans as if whoever's reading has never read Discworld. Yes, I'm sure most people here have, but hey, you never know.

The Last Unicorn Part 1

IDW published an adaptation of Peter Beagle's novel, The Last Unicorn.

The adaptation is not without flaws: as a result of trying to cram the entire story into just 6 issues, they had to omit a lot of info and there is a lot of quick skipping from one scene to the next. If you are not familiar with the book or the movie, it can get confusing.

For example, the comic doesn't explain that Mommy Fortuna put a fake horn on the unicorn so that people who have lost the ability to recognize her would be able to see her as a unicorn. Readers may wonder why the horn is now red, and figure out the reason on their own, but the comic itself doesn't stop to clarify. That happens a lot throughout the issues, even with important details like characters' motives, so if you want the full story you have to read the novel.

That said, the gorgeous art and moving adaptation of the most powerful scenes make this mini well worth reading :)

The unicorn lived in a lilac wood, and she lived all alone. )

Cry for Justice #2

"I can honestly say that JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE was one of the weirdest, darkest tales I’ve ever written. I think it may be the darkest JLA story ever written, although others may beg to differ. AM I proud of that? Not proud, no. I merely state what I feel to be true. I certainly know this tale isn’t to everyone’s taste. I know some people are even angered by it. But it’s a work I stand behind. I hope, reading it as one combined (and therefore quicker) read, you’ll see what I was going for…the slower build, gaining momentum…the growing cast…the growing event."

"The story of Spider-Man is a person who, despite having a lot of problems he can barely manage, tries to be better because he knows he has to be. He’s our best self. It’s an indestructible concept, because it’s fundamentally honest." - Mike Costa

The terror that flaps in the night is back, now with a new publisher. This new ongoing picks up after the fourth storyline of the previous series and completely ignores the Ducktales crossover that closed it, meaning some plot threads are still unresolved. If you've read the "Definitively Dangerous Edition" trade that collects the entire previous series with some corrections and a new epilogue, you're good to go.

In some ways the 'Doctor Octopus' arc could be viewed as an example of Bendis's 'decompressed' storytelling given that it ran for seven issues, Spidey and Ock don't even meet until four issues in and the story is a bit cluttered with subplots involving Justin Hammer and Kraven. Still, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

"He’s meaner, he’s nastier, and he’s more personally conflicted—he’s suffering from more existential dread [than the SUPREME POWER version]. [This version] makes that guy look like a tame little pussycat."

"There [are] references to other characters in the Marvel Universe so that we know that they exist; for really long term geeky fans of Marvel, there’s going to be a character that pops up—I don’t want to give that away because it’s a major supporting [cast member] that no one is going to be expecting to see."

"If anyone wants to check out comics, wants to check out DC Universe Rebirth #1 and doesn’t like it, they can mail it to Warner Bros., to me, and I will send them a check, I literally will, for both postage and for the book. I will buy all these books back because I believe in this issue a lot. I think it’ll do very well. I hope it does well. But I seriously will, I’ll buy back this book." - Geoff Johns

"We're exploring a very big theme in that book. That theme is the power of optimism and the power of hope and how no matter what you do it will shine through if you try and help it shine through." - Geoff Johns

"Pulp characters are irresistible for a lot of us, and I think part of the reason is the romance inherent to their origins. They sprang from mass-market entertainment, but their creators were often (not always, of course, but enough of the time for it to matter) reaching for something more lasting and meaningful. The result is fast-paced, action-filled stories with transcendent flashes of cultural commentary, interesting ideas, and ambiguous heroics that highlight the nature of the human condition. As a writer of comics and genre fiction I love this about them, and have found a lot of inspiration in their pages."

That's the case for both the Richard Stark novel and the Darwyn Cooke adaptation.

The snow's an absence of color; things like the opening, the criminal Parker's armored car heist, stand out against it.

There's him and his bombing the car, getting the cash, and getting out.

And then there's the getaway driver turning a right so hard he turns them over.

Up and over. )

"When we do big events like this, we usually employ one writer and one artist. However, this story is so huge – it cuts across the entire Marvel Universe – we thought it would benefit from additional brainpower. So, we tapped five of our most popular writers (Brian Bendis, Jason Aaron, Matt Fraction, Jonathan Hickman and Ed Brubaker) and three of our most popular artists (John Romita Jr., Olivier Coipel and Adam Kubert) to do this story." - Axel Alonso

From the time she was reintroduced, comics fans, except for those that actually like Duella (Believe it or not, there are some), had wanted Harley to beat her up. It finally happened in New Suicide Squad #3.

The art wasn't good, but the punchline made it worth it.

"I don't want to say the Inhuman angle was 'forced' on us, but kinda sorta, so in a lot of ways, Lunella's wanting to avoid becoming Inhuman reflected our personal feelings about that story aspect! . . . In truth, the Inhuman angle became very interesting, creatively, as I think the story proved..." - Brandon Montclare
