It’s Knittin’ Time

Don’t let the Yancey Street Gang know about it, but Ben Grimm’s now into knits.  When the creator of this gem figures out how to make a flaming Johnny Storm, I’ll be impressed.

Good Hood Hunting

Usually these sets of JLU figures don’t interest me, but I might just have to purchase this one. Yes, it would mean owning yet another Batman, Superman and Flash figure (I think I’ll soon drown in them), and the Grodd figure, while cool, is nothing terribly exciting. No, the real reason to buy this set is for the Red Hood/Joker figure.  Has anyone seen this in a local Target (it’s an exclusive to them)?  If so, let us know if the Hood looks as good in reality as he does in this photo.

Batman and the Anguish of Guilt!

Some things simply don’t require any further comment.  I never thought of Bruce Wayne as the Raskolnikov type, but maybe there’s something to the idea….

Dostoyevsky Comics Featuring Batman

Dostoyevsky Comics

Brian Hughes has a great write-up in Again With the Comics about “Dostoyevsky Comics” by R. Sikoryak, an amazing comic book adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” featuring Batman. It was originally published in 2000 as part of Drawn and Quarterly #3 and here are all the full scans of the comic.

Is Countdown Working for You?

Tepid reviews, lackluster fan interest, and a meandering plot have made a lot of folks just plain meh about DC’s supposed-to-be landmark Countdown series.  I had high hopes. I mean, when Darkseid showed up in the first few pages of the very first issue, my adrenaline started pumping. Now, I’m about 8 issues behind, and I’m not terribly interested in catching up.  What about you?  What’s your view of Countdown?
