A Sunday Review

I may never catch up...

This week's movie was The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones Chapter 19: Winds of Change (1919) - Indy being present at the "peace" conferences after the war was a fairly powerful way to look at the situation. Various characters made for various points of view, all of which gave a better perspective. Indy's return home showed just how hard it is to stuff someone back into a box once they've been out in the world.

Here are reviews of the DCBS comic books that I've gotten around to reading and reviewing, sorted by the original shipping date:
  • Jun 6th
  • The Legend of Oz: The Wicked West #4 - Following the book to some extent, but there's a bit more going on there. How will this end?
  • Justice League International #10 - Is this book over yet?
  • Earth Two #2 - Three little stories, I like Jay's the best, even if I'm now used to seeing him as an old man.
  • Worlds' Finest #2 - Robin and Supergirl become Huntress and Power Girl after switching universes. Neat concept, but I miss the old DC.
  • Smallville Season 11 #2 - Hank Henshaw, huh? An interesting way to fit pieces together. I'm still not sure what is happening overall (didn't Luthor die?) but it's ok.
  • Doctor Who Classics Series IV #5 (OF 6) - Another story that fits in comic book format, and works as a whole. Enjoyable.
  • Jun 13th
  • Green Lantern #10 - That was an unexpected source of help. Not happy about the Black Hand, though. That's going to be a problem soon. Maybe it'll bring back the real DC?
  • Resurrection Man #10 - Getting closer to the truth, but what the heck is with the angels and dude of the dark?
  • Green Lantern: The Animated Series #3 - I've never had that much trouble trying to get a little grub. Knock on wood.
  • Saucer Country #4 - Oooh, the governor really is good, isn't she? Going to be a real battle, but I think she might just win it.
  • Spongebob Comics #9 - Yay, more Mermaid Man!
  • Jun 20th
  • Green Lantern Corps #10 - I wonder what John is up to? Is he trying to show that the corps is out of control?
  • Batman Beyond Unlimited #5 - Potential new vigilante, new Luthor-villain and the rest of the origin story of Warhawk. I'm torn between the first story and the last story being the most interesting. The first because of the name and the last because of the identity of Mr. Stone.
  • Young Justice #17 - Halfway decent story despite the lack of Aqualad.
  • Fables #118 - And the purpose becomes... well, not clear. There's obviously more to the Queen of Deadland than we've seen, but at least more has been revealed.
  • Jun 27th
  • Justice League #10 - VULKO!!!! YES!
  • Aquaman #10 - There's a lot here to wonder about. Aquaman was never that reckless originally. He's even more like Namor in this version than he's been.
  • Green Lantern: New Guardians #10 - I think this is where we say "yikes" because Saint Walker is going to the dark side.
  • Superman Family Adventures #2 - Aqua-Ohs! JOY!!!!
  • Star Trek TNG/Doctor Who: Assimilation #2 - And so the crews meet. Some nice twists in this one, but not enough to make it truly excellent, just pretty good.
  • Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz #8 - Eureka is a piece of work, isn't she? I wonder what Inkwell the cat would say if he went to Oz?
