emeraldstag: Sailor Moon's Usagi & Luna (smallville)
Wonder Woman #1 - I love the art (Cliff Chiang) but I will say the first half or so was a bit confusing with the lack of dialogue. I liked the action and the last bit with Diana, Hermes and Zola made up for the confusion earlier. An interesting start.

Supergirl #1 - I loved this issue. Don't know how I feel about the metor containing Supergirl going through the Earth's mantle but whatever. I liked her confusion, thinking it was a dream until the sun came up and she knew something was wrong. And then the ending page, perfect first issue.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #1 - I don't like the changes made to Kori that she can barely tell the difference between humans and has no care about the "group" she was with before. It's an understandable conceit and probably done so to help buffer any dislike of Kori's sexual proclivities but ugh, Kori/Dick was one of my favorite pairings and for her to be frolicking with Roy and Jason, its like a nightmare in that aspect lol.

Nightwing #1 -
It'll take a bit to get used to Nightwing being red colored but I liked this first issue. The whole I have to be different than Bruce gotta be in some loft in the bad part of the city is getting a bit old, I feel like Dick is moved to a new place with every writer that takes over. Especially when having access to the Cave and the mansion is so handy, or even the penthouse with the bunker underneath it, it seems a waste to shelve all that. I do like the return of Haly's Circus and the continuing of Dick's tendency for redheads, and even the hired merc with claws is interesting.

Catwoman #1 -
Not bad. I'm not a fan of Guillem March's art, disliked it on Gotham City Sirens so the fact that it has followed Selina to her own book I'm a little disappointed. I also am less thrilled by the fact that Winick is the writer and that he just had Selina brutally kill a guy. I don't mind bringing back the thief, grey aspect of Catwoman but that seemed a bit much. Hot and Heavy with the Bat, at least they kept one thing consistent lol.

Birds of Prey #1 - Interesting first issue. Again like the Batman & Robin book with Bruce/Damian, I'm a little confused and disheartened by the coldness between Dinah/Babs. Outside of that, I'm all for the book, and I'm glad that reporter wasn't going to be a continual presence because his perspective just wasn't needed. This could be Dinah's solo book in the way that Green Arrow/Black Canary never was.

Batman #1 - By far the main Batman books seem to be hitting all cylinders. Snyder just does the Bat Family so well and I love seeing the Bruce Wayne side of things along with Batman, sometimes Bruce is forgotten by other writers and all that you get is Batman. The last page twist didn't do much for me but I am sure it's going to be a great mystery to be revealed. Also love Vicki Vale. Also Capullo's art is a nice change of pace, love it!

Flash #1 - One of the first comics I read of the new DC52 and I have to say one of the things I love about the reboot is freeing up the locked in relationships (I like Patty Spivot and seeing Iris West in a more Lois Lane type role). The art by Manapul is amazing (and I have to say the seams that have been added to a lot of the heroes costumes I like a lot) and the story seems interesting with so many clones? of Barry's friend.

Teen Titans #1 - Solid first issue. I really don't get some organization getting the jump on Tim unless he meant to let them so he could find out who he's dealing with, and I'm intrigued to see how Cassie is different. Kid Flash ... it depends on who he is, there's much confusion there but I do wish they'd build the team first before sending  Superboy after them but I guess .. if he is going to be part of the team it makes sense.

Batman: The Dark Knight #1 - Not as great as the other two Batman books but pretty good. I like Finch's art, and Jaina Hudson seems like an interesting new character. That internal affairs guy I could care less about and I am intrigued by what happened to Two-Face.

Aquaman #1 - Masterful first issue, you can tell that Geoff Johns just gets it. I like how they confront the misconceptions/stereotypes built up about the character and his frustration/anger about it. And monsters from the sea, I am excited about the series.

Superman #1 -
Probably the downside of freeing up relationships, it just feels weird for Lois to be with someone else. As long as they don't turn Clark into a morose voyeur like Superman Returns I can live with it for awhile. A lot happened in the book, maybe too much but I can understand wanting to try to set up the world and get going as fast as possible. One positive note, not one mention of Luthor.

And that was it! All through the pile of books I've had sitting on my coffee table for a good six months at least. Apologies for filling up so much commentary on 8 month old stories.

emeraldstag: Sailor Moon's Usagi & Luna (dc)
This is where I continue reading DCU comics that came out 8 months ago.

Flashpoint #5 -
Wow. I can't remember the last event book to have such an emotionally affecting issue like this one (maybe Identity Crisis when Tim's dad died) but as a final issue of a big event, having Barry say goodbye to his mom and then delivering Thomas Wayne's letter to Bruce. HEARTBREAKING.  A satisfying final issue to an event book, again something I can't remember the last time I felt that way.

Detective Comics #1 - I have to say as my first taste of the DC52, this was BRILLIANT. Reading this issue reminded me how much I missed the Batman vs Joker dynamic back before everyone and their mother knew that Batman and Bruce Wayne was connected.  I can't say I'm all that fond of "the man" hating on Batman but I guess it is too easy a path not to take.  That end was unexpected though. Great twist, leaving me wondering what is going to happen.

Action Comics #1 - I'm intrigued by seeing a young, unknown Superman in Metropolis but there are still a few tired aspects to the Mythology that unfortunately seems to be sticking around with this restart. The General Rossification of Sam Lane kills me, and enough with Luthor.

Batgirl #1 - I'm excited about Barbara being back as Batgirl but I'll be honest Gail Simone's stories have never really wowed me. It took me awhile to realize I was only reading Birds of Prey because I liked the idea of the characters and not the stories, and her run of Secret Six I lasted even less time on. Other than that, this issue was probably the quickest read so far and pretty much went from action scene to action scene.

Hawk & Dove #1 - I tried this out because I absolutely enjoyed Dawn in Birds of Prey and I really came to like Liefeld this past year through watching interviews and following his tweets.  That said, Liefeld's art is not that great, every other face has them clenching their teeth. I'm glad that Dawn & Deadman still are together apparently, but I would definitely probably not really enjoy the book until a different art team is on it. Still don't care about Hawk.

Superboy #1 - I like the idea of bringing Superboy back to the roots of being a lab-created clone.   I love that Rose Wilson is in the book and I am interested to see who this Red is that has some "bond" with Superboy. Also it was great how the simulator kept putting Superboy in small town Kansas and they couldn't figure out why. And then how he keeps ignoring the woman in the burning house and the comment that unless the human DNA is extremely arrogant and all that jazz .. This has the potential to be a fun book, much more than the Superboy comic that just ended.

Suicide Squad #1 - Only picked up the book because of Harley Quinn. I don't know any of the creative team and outside of King Shark I have no real interest with any of the characters outside of Harley. It's a shame if this can be my only outlet of her and getting only a glimpse of what is going on with her.

Green Lantern #1 - Now this is an interesting start to a book.  I was a little confused at first to what still existed and what had happened but Carol still has the Star Sapphire ring, Hal lost his to Sinestro and the Guardians are up to no good as usual. Now the idea that Sinestro might be realizing some of the wrongness with his Corps is an intriguing aspect and I should not be surprised that they made Hal screw things up with Carol, its rare for a superhero book to put much thought into a relationship. I'm excited.

Batwoman #1 - The art is gorgeous, of course. I'm intrigued by Kate and I love that they're keeping Bette around, although I did like the FlameBird persona so hopefully that's still in the mix. So I'm guessing Renee's frame means she's dead? I always liked Maggie Sawyer but didn't like taking her out of Metropolis but getting to be the main police presence/interaction for Batwoman works too.

Batman & Robin #1 - I was pretty disappointed with this start. While I thought Tomasi had been pretty brilliant writing Dick in the Nightwing series and then pretty good at writing Dick as Batman, He just doesn't seem to have the Bruce/Damian dynamic down at all and really Damian completely feels off. It went from a way too cold conversation between Bruce/Damian and then as Robin it was like Damian was Jason Todd all over again.

And that's all I can muster reading and commenting on in one sitting. I promise only one more of these and then I'll go back to more current topics.

Here is where I will talk about comics that came out uh .. 8 months ago? Yeesh. I am so behind. Once I get through this pile I'm skipping ahead to January releases. Busy Busy Busy.

Detective Comics #881 -
I really wish there had been more time to explore the Dick as Batman story. I think Snyder is one of the few writers who wrote Dick well and didn't just try to turn him into Bruce-lite. I also would have liked to have seen more between Dick!Bat and Barbara/Jim Gordon, which was some with this story. It's a great dynamic.

Batgirl #24 - It's a shame that the story was rushed to a quick end but I love Steph so it was a nice wrap up. I also liked the glimpses of what she saw under the influence and I loved the Nightwing-esque outfit in one and the one where it looks like she is a mom with I will pretend is Tim's kid since I loved those two together.

Batman #713 -
A great story telling the balance between first Bruce!Bat and Dick!Robin to then Dick!Bat and Damian!Robin.  I love the parallels between the two and how Waynes seem to grow best working with a Grayson.  Not a better duo than a balanced Batman & Robin.

Justice League of America #60 - Now this is a depressing issue. I was always a fan of this incarnation of the group given that it had the next generation Dick, Donna, Jade, Kara, Jesse, etc. leading but Robinson wrote some way out there stories and honestly Bagley's art really set the book back. He just did not fit with the characters. One of the things I enjoyed greatly was seeing Dick and Kara interact, the crush aspect and all it entails.

Action Comics #904 - Okay, I'll be honest I remember very little about the Reign of the Doomsdays but I did think a previous issue had resolved everything with Luthor failing so this was a little weird to see them all fighting again. Everything was just okay, nothing special. A nice little speech by Lois at the end but I feel like that is something that is too often repeated in Superman stories this days, reminding him that his goodness is why people do what they do for him.

Teen Titans #100 -
Extra-sized issue, nice sprawling battle.  Also enjoyed the appearance of the Source Wall, using it to trap Superboy-Prime. And one of the things I've always liked about a teen team book is the possibility for ever changing relationships, like this one had a little tease of Conner/Rose but of course Conner screws up by not seeing it at all and going in a complete different direction. Love the art at the end, reminds me how much I enjoyed the future Titans arc that happened so many years ago.

Wonder Woman #614 - Outside of that weird Witchblade-esque moment in the beginning with the sword, it was nice to see Diana finish her odyssey and return to the life she remembered.  Touching end with Hippolyta remarking the end of this era.

Looking forward to starting the pile of #1 issues I have left. Will save for another post. NEXT STOP THE DCNU.

I finally saw Red this week. Came out around this time last year, and I'd been wanting to see it since I'd first gotten a glimpse of it.  Starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich & Helen Mirren, it was adapted from a comic that I never read or knew about before the movie.  That said, this was pretty fun action movie with a dash of comedy sprinkled throughout it.  I think the characters I enjoyed the most were the two that I had no idea were in the film from the ads I'd seen of it, the damsel in distress played by Mary-Louise Parker and the agent put in charge of eliminating Bruce Willis' character played by Karl Urban. And Ernest Borgnine is 94!! Amazing to see him still so active of an actor at his age. 

Almost done with S1 of Glee, and upon the discovery that there's only been 2 seasons (thought there had been 3 for some reason) I am hoping to find S2 online so I can catch up completely before S3 starts and watch it on time with the rest of the world.  I have however found a ship that is greatly growing on me (a good sign that the show is becoming one of my favorites) and the ship even has a cute name: Quill! (Quinn+Will)  Of course I doubt there will ever be any actual movement on the show of that ship, I will begin to scour the fandom for fic.

The last two Saturday mornings I've put on the Nolan Batman movies and watched them again for the first time in a year or two.  AND THEY ARE STILL SO GOOD.  I think the most underrated parts of Batman Begins are the scenes with Thomas Wayne and I really like the evolution of that relationship that gets transferred to then Alfred & Bruce.  The Dark Knight gets you pumping a bit more and is nearly a perfect film but I do have some minor complaints. First the underrated part probably has to be the end scene between Dent, the Gordons & Batman. Dent's pain, then Batman's decision to take on the blame and then Gordon explaining to Jim Jr. why Batman's running.  Still gives me chills when Gordon says "the dark knight" and then it goes right to credits.  The negatives: feels slightly too fast paced and maybe a bit too focused on the Joker, that whole plot hole of Batman jumping out the window after Rachel and leaving a whole room of Gotham's elite alone with the Joker and his armed henchmen, and that Katie Holmes did not return to her role as Rachel Dawes.  I'm a big fan of continuity with sequels and having a different actor play the same role in a continued story just bugs me, although I've softened my stance against Maggie Gyllenhaal a bit since The Dark Knight first came out.  Still can't say the same for Don Cheadle in Iron Man 2.

I also watched Tangled again this week and I still love it. Think it ranks up there with Tarzan, Hercules, The Lion King and the other classic 90's Disney films, just missing catchy/memorable songs.  When Will My Life Begin, I Have a Dream, Mother Knows Best & I See the Light are great songs just not the easiest to remember the lines to unlike some of the 90s movies that you can at least say a line.  Although I think the opening number and Mother Knows Best are the closest to that point.   Also don't stream something you own on a big screen because about 30 minutes in to watching I stopped streaming on Netflix and just popped in the Blu-Ray to enjoy the visual beauty of the movie.  I can't wait for the animated short coming out next year.

Prepping for the end of Smallville and I almost forgot to make a new month post for May. Above was my Mac's wallpaper for April, I usually try to stay away from close up shots because it almost feels like the person is staring back at you but I had not had a Superman related background since September and over a year since the last Smallville related image. Saying all that it would probably have worked for this month to celebrate the finale but I can't believe I forgot to think about that I've been so content this year with using randomization for my many desktops. Anyway, this was Erica back at the Batman Begins movie premiere nearly 6 years ago. How time flies.

April was another dry writing month which is depressing but I'll admit that my work load is starting to lighten now in May and with the Smallville finale buzz still going strong in my head I am feeling very creative-oriented of late. I hope to make up for the last two months with a solid second half of May. WRITING TOTAL: 0 words

May's sole birthday baby is my fellow gem friend, [livejournal.com profile] emerald_night (12th), who's birthday was last week. I hope you had a good time and made some worthwhile memories on your birthday! :)

And what I started last month because I just find it so fascinating and I love twitter: my twitter plug for May with an informational screencap of my #FollowFriday tweet.

PS: Expect a busier week from me on here as I catch up on things. TTFN. Tah Tah For Now!

Since I've started ranting weekly about specific comic book issues this monthly wrap-up has become more commentary than outright reviews about the issues. Less spoilery.

I think I talked about my plan to try to get through every video game I own from this generation and the last of consoles before I continue purchasing games only to have them sit on the shelf for a long time.  Anyway, first on my list (alphabetically) was Batman Vengeance for the PS2.  It came out in 2001 and is based off the 90's Batman the Animated Series with voices from the series like Batman, Batgirl, Harley Quinn and Joker (Mark Hamil!).  The cutscenes brought back memories of the old series and the game was separated into several episodes each with their own title page like the series.

The game was a total of 19 levels and some were extremely short, some were confusing in what you had to get done and others were just plain out right frustrating in the simplest maneuvers would take me close to an hour to get through.  I don't know how much was the control scheme and how much was the fact that my controller is not the newest and doesn't have the sharpest response as a result.  I think any fan of the BTAS series that likes video games should definitely give it a try but be ready for frustration. I'll put it this way, it's a great game that I hope never to play again.  I finished it last month. Next game on the list is Bloodrayne 2 for the PS2, I've played about an hour or two of it and damn it is VERY BLOODY.  Totally warranting the MA-17 rating.

I can't remember a time when I'm actively watching so many new seasons of TV shows.  The return of White Collar led to me trying out Covert Affairs which caused me to then catch Burn Notice and Psych AND NOW I'M WATCHING NEARLY EVERY SHOW ON THE USA NETWORK!  But clearly Psych is my new favorite show. I can't believe it took five seasons for me to give the show the chance, but I think I've changed in that time and maybe I wouldn't have enjoyed Psych back then.  I'm making sure never to watch an episode of Royal Pains just so that I don't get hooked on another show, and as for Burn Notice I have to say it seems much more like a 'on in the background' type of show for me.  I like the action and the narrating storytelling device but I've seen a handful of episodes in the last week and more often than not I'm not exactly wanting more afterward.

I've also started watching the new BBC Sherlock series.  I've only seen the first part and plan to watch last Sunday's episode shortly but it is doing just enough to keep me interested.  I did think the 'Pink' episode had some pacing problems, and at times it seemed like Holmes' keen observation skills were dulled in order to help the viewer figure out the clues at the same time of him (I'm thinking of the scene where the police are in Holmes' place and he's telling everyone to be quiet over and over).  Also has anyone noticed that they've certainly modeled the music after the Robert Downey Jr. Holmes movie, I wasn't the only person to notice that similarity when I was watching the episode and I think it's a brilliant thing to do considering the success of the film and how it gives the show a touch of the Old Holmes feel while being modern.

That did get me thinking though - does anyone remember hearing about another Holmes movie being made?  I'm not talking about the Guy Ritchie directed, RDJ starring sequel that I'm sure is on the horizon, but when the RDJ movie was being made I had heard that there was another Holmes movie in the works by a different company and there was question as to which would do better as Guy Ritchie had been in a bit of a rut box office wise with his movies.  Since the RDJ Holmes came out I have not heard a peep.

Lastly, I met my writing goal for last night!  Already in one day I wrote more than I did in July and some of the months before that.  I love when I can get in a groove and I'm looking forward to getting back to writing tonight (I think you can tell with the length of this post).  Also everything I wrote last night is for a story I've decided wasn't going anywhere and wont' be seeing the light of day anytime soon, but fear not I am absolutely excited with the idea of touching up some of the fics that I've left dormant here for the last few years and maybe completing a few (since that is a peeve of mine to leave something incomplete).  I'm going to proclaim it now, AUGUST WILL BE BEST WRITING MONTH EVER!!!

Had some comic book thoughts while reading that I can't really cover in my stack posts. Might do this on occasion.

Talking the Lack of Comic Relationships, Ultimate Spider-Man, Batfamily Villains & DC Titles I'm Dropping )

It's strange that the Olympics are over already.  The two week length has that ability of making it feel like a long event while its happening but also giving that feeling of being over too fast when it's done.  With how NBC covered the Winter Olympics this year, I definitely feel like I missed out more than saw.  I wish they'd shown more events outside of Hockey (and sometimes Curling) live without the benefit of being delayed and cut up so you only saw the top contenders and team USA because some of us would just like to watch the sport no matter who was participating.  Also, forcing us to stay watching close to midnight for unshown content from huge events like Figure Skating and others is INSANE.

DC's next direct-to-DVD animated film, Justice League Crisis on Two Earths recently just came out and because of that release the previous two DVD's (Green Lantern First Flight & Superman Batman Public Enemies) were on sale (less than $9 each) so I snapped those up.  I have yet to watch a DC DVD that I haven't enjoyed so I imagine I'll like these as well.  They were backordered so I'm just waiting them out right now. I also bought 17 Again for less than $9 too.  Don't judge, I liked the movie.

Something that has irritated to me over the years is when I notice that I'm missing content out of my control.  Every so often I'll notice several journals here on LJ that for whatever reason will not show up on my friendslist despite being mutual friends.  This has started to happen with me on Twitter too where there will be people who will tweet and I'll never see their updates but I'm a bit more lenient there because I follow so many that it's easy to fall behind on the timeline. LJ it's more of a convenience thing and I hate having to dig through all of my friends journals just to see if I missed something.

Alice in Wonderland comes out today and I can't wait to see it.  I haven't been a very good theatre watcher so far this year.  Outside of seeing Avatar, I missed The Princess and the Frog, Sherlock Holmes, and I'm still planning on seeing Percy Jackson.  But back to Alice, from what I devine from the trailers I've seen on TV, this looks like a quasi-sequel to the typical telling of Alice's original journey to Wonderland. With the proposal and going into the rabbit hole, I am thinking this movie is one of those returning to your childhood to put a close to it and be ready to move to adulthood.  Also, I think I'm developing an attraction to Helena Bonham Carter. She's a little odd, but I love it.

Starting off, I want to wish a very Happy 22nd Birthday (perhaps the best palindrome age) to someone who was my very first Brit friend, [livejournal.com profile] ruhenheim! I hope you're enjoying your Sunday, Sarah, and having fun both inside and out of the internet realm. ♥

Secondly, despite spending parts of Thursday & Friday trying to fix the water heater, the water is only coming out lukewarm. Going to give it one more shot to get it hotter and if it doesn't work, a repair guy will have to be called on Monday to fix it this week. Couldn't have happened during the Summer, could it?

Talking Batgirl & the Batfamily in General )
emeraldstag: Sailor Moon's Usagi & Luna (celebrity)
If you've been paying attention to LJ today you'll have noticed that I've been very busy today catching up on everything. After all that fun stuff I got deluged with other tedious life things to do, like knowing about the car theft I talked about previously, today the water heater decided to stop working. It was fairly new, bought only in June 2008, but it comes out it's a slightly faulty model. Thankfully the parts warranty lasts 6 years so it was covered in that area but what looks like a simple wire to replace is a pain in the butt to actually remove. I had to make shift tools and use them for other purposes to get the faulty piece out. Of course by the time I got it out, the store was already closed so it wont get resolved till tomorrow to find out if that was truly the problem or not. If not a true repair man will have to be called in. It's strange to realize how much hot water is taken for granted, and what timing is this that it happens on the day southern CA is the coldest its been since maybe last Winter.

Secondly, and perhaps more importantly some of my fabulous LJ friends had their birthdays today. I'm talking about [livejournal.com profile] misshapenmuse and [livejournal.com profile] weasleygirl89! I hope today was a great day for you both and expect sometime down the road a birthday drabble to come out (hopefully not two months from now, lol). Happy Birthdays!! ♥

Lastly, my phone is a Razr3. I've had it for over 2 years now. The contract I agreed to has now expired and honestly I'm just waiting to get into a better financial position before diving into the smart phone market and getting an iphone because those phone plans are expensive! I really want one though. ;3 Anyway, the flashiest I get with this phone is using the bluetooth to upload ringtones onto it, and changing the wallpaper on it. Since I just recently switched to a more Smallville flavored wallpaper I thought I'd go ahead and show off all the ones I've used so far (from first to my current): My Razr Wallpapers )

I would call myself a fan of the Twilight movie, it certainly surprised me with how much I enjoyed it.  I really have no interest in reading the book series and didn't really understand the whole Jacob vs Edward thing especially after seeing Twilight.  Since seeing the movie, I've been looking forward to seeing the sequel and hoping to enjoy myself again.  Then the paperback version of the book got a new cover, and I saw the exclusive trailer of New Moon that they showed during the MTV Movie awards.  I am now steadily backpedaling on my expectations with the next installment and am thinking about waiting for the DVD release to even see it.  I knew there would be some sort of love triangle aspect, but like with most stories I learn to enjoy, I've become attached to the main character pairing of Edward/Bella and don't want to see a movie where Edward does the typical hero leaving the love behind thinking it would be safer for them, and have the focus be on Jacob.  Also did he really need to cut his hair? Seems odd to change his look - unless that's in the book of course. My enthusiasm has certainly been dampened.

Something that has got me really, really excited is this preview of a comic art piece on DC Comics' blog that has Dick Grayson Batman kissing Starfire!  Ever since the idea that Dick was going to Batman became a serious possibility, the shipper side  of my brain immediately kicked into action in regards to my favorite DC character and thinking how his relationships would take new uniques look now that the Bat cowl was a factor.  Imagining Dick!Batman kissing Starfire was one, or having the Birds of Prey walk in on Barbara kissing Dick!Batman and even the possibility of matching Dick!Batman with characters that just didn't work with Bruce!Batman.  The piece might not lead to anything but it does look fabulous and I'd love to see it inked and colored. (On that note of Bat family and shipping, I am really becoming enamoured with Squire and I hope she continues to get some run in the Bat books now that Battle for the Cowl is over).

And I wanted to mention that I started a new story the other day.  I even made a banner for the chapter and plan to for every one after that because it ended up being really fun to do. :)  It's intended to be the first part of a trilogy, but seeing as I've yet to complete a multi-chaptered fic I'm not going to promise that and instead will make sure that the story works on its own in the end just in case.  It's a big sign that I'm in the writing mood and plan to get stuff other than birthday drabbles and the ocassional challenge ficlets written down.  I was almost derailed with the Xbox 360 gift I recieved last week as it really started to suck up my free time, but after two days of obsession on it I realized that none of my other fun endeavors were getting any traction and I didn't like that one bit.  Now I've limited my gaming time to when I've finished everything else on my to-do lists because I know how easy it is to get sucked back up on it. Now everything is pretty fun right now. Just in time for the heat to bear down on us.
