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.

SO MANY great comic books this week.  Can't remember the last time that happened.

A comic that starred Dick Grayson, Kara Zor-El, Jennie-Lynn Hayden (Jade) and Donna Troy?!  That is like a dream title for me.  James Robinson is quickly winning me over with his run on Justice League America.  Only thing that kept it from being my favorite book of the week was that I wish there was more of the Dick/Kara storyline instead of just a few pages bookending the Jade/Donna story.

For a book about the fastest man, the Flash is mired in the slowest developing plot line and I'm really close to dropping this title.  I get that the Rogues are an important part of the Flash Universe but way too many Rogues on the pages and it feels like the story hasn't moved at least 5 issues worth and I'm not fond of wife/family in danger plots.

If Portacio is going to be Uncanny X-men's new regular artist, I'll be dropping this book.  I was already leaning that way with how Fraction writes the X-men but the art style is not something I'm fond of.  They keep making Hope look older than she is/should be and there's just a lot about the X-men I haven't enjoyed in YEARS.

The art is pretty but the stories in Power Girl since Winick took over have been not as fun and entertaining as the previous creative team.  I'm also not fond of having Power Girl's identity get figured out.  Did like seeing some Dick/Karen interaction but I'm honestly only reading this book lately for the art.  Might be dropping it soon and that's just sad because I like the character but not the direction the book is heading.

Kord Tower? Seriously? I give up, I'm dropping Birds of Prey.  This book should at least have great art and it doesn't even have that.

Is there a worse mentor/guardian-like figure than Wolverine? I never understand why the writers mess with X-23 so much.  She could be a fun character to write, but instead they always go for the tortured, born to kill, isolated from/ostracized by everyone route. Sigh.

Can we just forget about Magog? He wasn't interesting even when Geoff Johns wrote JSA. And the art in the annual was subpar at best, made it hard to even try to read through the entire issue.

ETA:
Just realized I was pretty much all negative here. I guess it's just one of those weeks. Tiny Titans was my favorite issue this week.

My macbook desktop wallpaper for June comes from an art piece I found on Deviant Art. Drawn by MarcioTakara, it's a group picture of the X-men. I am a fan of his drawing style and noticed his art because of his pieces on Justice League & Avengers.

There seems to be a trend developing in my writing in that every other month (FEB,APR,JUNE) have equated with no amount of writing produced. While early June was pretty free for writing that I didn't get done, the last three weeks have been hectic and it's been odd times of the day here in July that I'll find myself opening up docs and tweaking things. I'm been outlining chapters for several stories to the point where I'm almost ready to write, so I'm hoping July will be my most productive ficwise in awhile. And I hope I'm successful in that because in August I am setting myself an ambitious goal as I focus solely on a original story I've been piecing together for about five years now. WRITING TOTAL: 0 words

And on the note of writing, a reminder to anyone that has been thinking about participating in the bi-annual Porn Battle that I've written for two of the last three events: PROMPT SUBMISSION STARTS MONDAY!! We have through Thursday to get submissions in and then posting occurs from the 18th-25th. I have an unfinished smutty Chlark one-shot that I had originally started for the [livejournal.com profile] dcu_freeforall Spring Porn Fest that I may convert for the Porn Battle. One-shots tend to be the only place I can contain my shippyness to only one ship for a story so I do want to submit one or two.

There are a lot of July birthdays happening around me with not only my friends here on livejournal but also offline. Unfortunately for them I only send out birthday wishes to my friends here on LJ, so a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUG TO: [livejournal.com profile] scarlett71177 (11th TODAY!) & [livejournal.com profile] dj_tenku (14th).

Lastly, in what seems to be a trend with these new month posts, I just made a new icon post over at [livejournal.com profile] capes_and_cowls. It features plenty of icons from the Cliff Chiang drawn issue of Brave & the Bold (and everyone knows that I just adore his art!).
