Some weeks it’s mostly likes, other weeks it’s dislikes.
So what’s grinding my gears this week?
Wonder Woman Dead Earth
I got a hold of an advanced review of Wonder Woman Dead Earth #1 by Daniel Warren Johnson and I must say, it’s a great read, so it made my likes this week.
It’s on FOC this Monday but I don’t think this will be hard to get come release day.
It’s an alternative timeline story but when Diana seeks out Bruce Wayne, she only finds a dead Bruce Wayne..
The rest of the book is just great story telling in very Daniel Warren Johnson gritty fashion. If you liked Extremity, you’ll like this new take on Wonder Woman.
Bendis + Superman = Headline Chaser
Instead of just writing great stories, he (Bendis) writes stories to just attract the media and it seems to work to his benefit and whoever is cutting him the checks.
I’ve given Bendis a lot of chances and I just can’t bring myself to read his stuff anymore. He’s had some decent runs in the past but his style and sometimes controversial approaches are just to make up for the lack of poor writing and creativity.
So while some outlets are trying to press on that this issue is a big deal, it’s not. It’s just Bendis chasing headlines! I have the feeling just wants his name mentioned on the wider audience outside of comic news circle.
But like always, if people actually start buying these at inflated FOMO prices, buying into the hype as I’m sure Bendis’s goal along with DC’s is to make this a national headline as the release inches closer, as I always say, buy low, sell high and Always bet on Cover A!
That’s all that’s grinding my gears this week. What’s grinding yours? Tell us here in the comments or on the forums.
