Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome...

To the couple of thousand extra visitors who've come in over the last few days. Only in the comics 'blogosphere' could "man stops buying comic because he doesn't like it" cause such comment. I am the new Mary Jane statue. Or something.

Anyway, just to reassure those of you nice enough to ask me to carry on talking about other comics that I will be, but not until Sunday. I hope those of you new to reading this blog will bear with me til then...

Bitching about a comic appears to be fine, but actually stopping buying it? You can't take that back, man. You've crossed a line.

The latest Countdown interview on Newsarama, here is stunning, in that the interviewer asked how Superman could be so blase about the events of Amazons Attack, got an unsatisfactory answer, and editorialized within the interview:

Newsarama Note: The effects of Amazons Attack were first seen in Countdown 47, which, if going by the original explanation of time in this series, suggest that the Amazons have been attacking the U.S. for over a month. We still wonder how Clark can justify sitting around, but we’ll move on.

He did the same thing in discussing the timeline of the Flash:

Newsarama Note: Not to nit pick Mike, specifically, but in discussing Countdown #43, he said “So it’s my vote that this happened before Wally was back,” speaking of the funeral, while All-Flash #1 showed that Bart died and Wally returned within the same hour.

Likewise, the “carrying” of Karate Kid is a recreation of the scene from JLA #10, where Kid’s teammates were helping him to walk due to the injuries suffered when Wally came back – time, apparently is very fluid - the Karate Kid scene is happening at one time, the Piper/Trickster at another (stemming out of them attending Bart's funeral) at another, and the Amazons' activities at a third.


I mean: ouch.
