Buttercup Dishes On Avengers Weekly

Ally and The Hood

Jimmy on Batman

Best Book of 2017

51bInDtIo5L._SX323_BO1,204,203,200_Black Hammer by Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston is the best book of 2017. I haven’t enjoyed a book this month since Watchmen. A stunning take on the darker side of a team of heroes who suddenly find themselves trapped in a world from which there is seemingly no escape.

There is a lot of retro stuff here as well as new twists which make this story amazing. It reminds me a great deal of what the Justice Society would be like if they were kinda creepy. It has that Silver Age feel to it.

This book is a must read for any collector. The first two volumes are out as trade paperbacks. Pick them up at your local shop.

Dave (and Scooby and Shaggy) Go To The Future

Pick of the Week: Doomsday Clock #1

sep170247dI’ve been waiting over 30 years for this comic and it’s finally here. A straight up sequel to the Watchmen. Even better, it’s the first step towards incorporating the characters from the Watchmen universe into the DC universe.

Mega.

The first issue sets the tone perfectly as we return to the darkness of the Watchmen universe. Dr. Manhattan has vanished. Vedit is on the run. The Owl and Silk Spectre have retired. And Rorshach is back? WTF?

I won’t give away too much more except to say that I’ve looked forward to this book since it was announced. I can’t wait to see how Johns is going to fold all of this into a much happier and brighter DCU.
