LOL, so I read Teen Titans #3 today. Apparently Tim Drake is invulnerable now if we're to go by this issue. A sapient garbage pile slams Red Robin's head into a steel girder hard enough to bend the girder!

Detective Comics #4:

This one actually wasn't too bad, honestly. I think it's the first issue of the Detective Comics books I've really liked. This appears to be the end of the first major story/arc so it's where I would drop the title but I may see it through the next story.

I looked that up. The creature clearly had no intention to kill, although it certainly went overboard. It basically looks like it safely cupped Tim's head between its fingers, and it's the force of the blow of the fingers first, not the head, that bent the girder. At least that's the only reading of that panel that makes sense to me.

Is it just me or does the Red Lanterns, though cool, really have no story at all?

It's not just you. I passed on the book because it seemed boring to me. DC has been pushing the Red Lanterns pretty much since the end of Blackest Night. I guess they think they are "kewl" or something. To me they are the least interesting of the Corps.

I think it could be interesting if they didn't dwell on Atrocitus and Bleez all that much. They were created as a foil to have a big fucking war two years ago but now seems to have outlived their purpose. And

*SPOILERS!*

..knowing the Guardians and the power(s) they wield, would you really keep Krona, though dead, wrapped up in a thin saran wrap and not some thickass holding tomb?

I'm all about the Green Lantern franchise, but "Red Lanterns" is absolutely uninteresting and boring. I don't care about these non-characters in the slightest bit. They really, really do not deserve their own title. I'd much rather see a Blue/Indigo Corps title or something! Or a comedy book starring Larfleeze!

The many different Corps is a cool premise - and rather long overdue, I mean I've been wondering for forty years when Sinestro would start handing out yellow rings - but that doesn't mean that it's a premise that can carry titles.

Marvel is starting to close the sales gap...I predict they'll take over the lead by next summer. Sad about Jerry.

Avenging Spider-Man is pretty fun.

Looks like the concept is roughly Spidey team-up? Y'know, each story arc with a different Avengers member? BTW, he mentions he's on two Avengers teams.. what's the other?

Gene Ha is filling in for Jim Lee on Justice League #7 which also features the earlier reported Geoff Johns/Gary Frank Captain Marvel back up story. I have to admit these pencils look pretty amazing and it looks like the League comes into some kind of conflict with Batman.

I'll give it until spring. With Spider-Man and The Avengers having movies (and related tie-ins) next summer, that will undoubtedly bump sales back to Marvel's favor.

Being more of a DC guy, I want to be wrong, but I just don't see DC coming out on top for very much longer.
