But before we get to the first of this week's reviews, geez, people. I post the lovely illo of a naked man (Grifter) with a well-placed gun, standing in the middle of a hotel, and I got just one comment. I'm not sure if this means almost no one's reading, or only the one person noticed, or folks don't think it's a big deal, or what.
And the daddy is.... Sam from the looks of it. Another gorgeous cover. Mostly setup, and boy is the Film Freak nutso. Ted babysitting was fun and Selina was in fine form. More, please.
Birds of Prey 98
Ah, there's nothing like a cover homage, this time to the appearance of the Babs Gordon Batgirl. And who is the new one? Still a mystery, and an odd one, at that. Everytime I see Dinah with Sin, who at 9 is a bit older than Lian, I think of Lian. I wish there would be some mention of Roy and Lian, given Roy's like a brother to Dinah, Lian's like a niece, and Lian's half-Asian and is growing up with one parent. It's the sort of connection I expect in real life to be made, so I expect it here, too. And that's my only quibble with a book building to another nice little mystery tale.
Nice version of Animal Man on the cover. He's really been growing on me. I hope he's not one of the upcoming deaths we've heard rumors about. I know people think it's Kory, but I think it might be Animal Man. Good issue, but I want to get back to Ralph and to Renee and Charlie. Even weekly, I can't seem to get enough of this book.
