The comics are piling up again, but I've also been lazy about posting reviews. Can I blame allergies? Because this has been a horrible allergy season so far. Anyway, on to the reviews.
Secret Six 33
A satisfying conclusion to the main story in hell, which of course isn't a true ending, because there's the matter of Scandal's "other girlfriend." I love all the complexity in this book, especially the complex relationships and emotions. The art's been great, too.
Freedom Fighters 9
Again, the group is disbanded, more or less (I swear this is a recurring theme), and the politics is as thick as ever, which is why I love this book so and am sad it'll be ending soon. I wouldn't like all comics to be like this, but I do like having one to read, with characters representing a variety of views.
A pretty cover and the usual fun inside. The real intrigue for me is the direction Wendy's story is taking. I'm looking forward to seeing how that develops.
Birds of Prey 12
Super cover, but does Hawk really go around in street clothes and his mask? At least Dove looks like she's just wearing sunglasses. It was nice seeing Renee (The Question) in the story (and I'd love to see Batwoman guest next!). And what a nice, creepy story. Part 2 looks like it should be a winner. Junior's such a icky villain.
This sets up Flashpoint nicely, although a bit slowly. Zoom's a powerful villain and playing with time is always fun and it gets explosive when you put the two together. Next up is Flashpoint 1 and it had better live up to the hype.
