New Comics Day

Doesn't look like anyone slipped and fell into a black hole, and comics have arrived on schedule.

Green Lantern Corps
Secret Invasion
Wonder Woman
Young Liars

Green Lantern Corps is getting weird. Good weird.

Lopresti is on break from Wonder Woman, which is a shame because it would have been fantastic to see him portray all the costume changes in this issue. The pinch-hit art isn't bad, but after the quality Lopresti consistently delivered on the last arc and change is noticeable.

Secret Invasion is not looking like it will win me over in the end. Here in issue 6 of 8, the pages are very impressive and Yu seems to be killing himself in true Perezian fashion-- but the truth is nothing really happens. In this issue more-so than others, the feeling is pressed that there is a shitload of events going on in other books (all other books, actually) and that the core title is just a wrapping. I am not a fan of that. The core story and events should be in the core book, with other books being the extension of that story. But such is the way of the mega crossover. Here's what the book left me with:

Page 19 - 20
DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD
ALL HEROES

IRON MAN: ASSEMBLE!

PAGE 21 - 22
DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD
ALL HEROES FIGHT ALL SKRULLS


Does that mean I can write for Marvel?
