There is so much mayhem and madness going around here as the House of Secrets wreaks havoc for the team. This issue set the premise for what’s going on in the Justice League Dark comics at the moment.

Godhead Act I | Part V: God is Red

I miss Dex-Starr. He was a good kitty, and he had better be okay. But I digress, seeing as he’s not in here I felt the need to express my feelings on the matter.

Now, let’s put our head in the game and focus on the issue at hand. Guy no longer wears his red ring, or so he claims, but now keeps it for when he feels he really needs it. Out on a beach with Tora, aka Ice, he is trying to forget the mini-war he had with Atrocitius. That is easier said than done when he is still a bearer of the red ring of rage. Not only that, but there is the added fact that when he faces off with the New Gods and get’s his tushie handed to him, well, this just puts him in all sorts of bad moods.

Robin Rises: Part 3 | Hellbound

Batman has never looked more frightening. In his new suit formatted by his best friends, he has made it to apokolips in the hopes of regaining his son and the chaos crystal. In the meantime, Batgirl, Red Robin and Red Hood have made the decision that they are not letting him do it alone, leaving Batwoman in Gotham to work the night and keep the streets safe.

Godhead Act I: Part II | Dead Worlds

I’m always amused when Hal gets his tushie handed to him. It’s not that I don’t like Hal s a character, it’s just that he gets on my nerve every so often with his head up his tushie. That being said however, this was a very good issue.

Following the events of NEW GODS: GODHEAD #1, Highfather and the warriors from New Genesis have stolen the rings, one from each emotional spectrum, in the hopes of creating the Life Equation. However, the new gods went too far and stole the ring from Mogo and the Green Lanterns are not taking too kindly to that. Both go head to head and the Green Lanterns discover that the New Gods are a force to be reckoned with.

The Secret History of Superman and Batman | Part 1: Temptations

Well this certainly paints a very different world from the one all readers are all familiar with. In this world Jor-El was the doom of Krypton versus the scientist trying to warn everyone who wouldn’t listen about its impending doom. Not only that, but he was visited by a God of Apokolips who offered them a chance to save their son. But Jor-El saw through that. Seems as though Darkseid has always had this unhealthy obsession with Superman. That’s certainly a little disturbing and entertaining at the same time.

Blinded by the Light | Part 3

What I like about this Teen Titans re-launch is that it doesn’t undo what the previous series established. At least not completely. Gar has his old fun loving personality and green skin back while Raven’s darker personality and stoic attitude has a lighter side.

Pfeifer has done a very good job writing this comic. His writing is very expressive and has a lot of interaction with the reader, giving the characters a lot of life. Take for instance each time he introduces the character. He writes “Raven…having the time of her life…Wonder Girl…not asleep. Not anymore.” It’s instances like that that are incredibly unique to his style of writing and make the third person narrative more captivating and capture the story and the characters.

The Blood of Grayskull | Part 4

Wow. Only two issues left before the climactic ending to the new 52 He-Man.

I wish Keith Giffen had stayed on the project. Nothing personal against Dan Abnett, but this series got way to dark, and this issue shows just how dark it got. Spoiler ahead, Adora kills her own brother and slices him down and Teela, the new sorceress, tricked her into doing it. That was just far too dark for the He-Man Universe.

I’m getting there! Catching up on my reviews isn’t as stressful as I thought it would be. I enjoyed my little break but I’m back. Todays reviews focus on Superman/Wonder Woman: Futures End #1 where Soule introduced Wonder Woman’s future role against the Goddess Nemesis and Red Lanterns: Futures End #1 where Guy Gardner, now a Blue Lantern, has teamed with Bleeze to rid the universe of the Red Lanterns before they go up against their strongest foe and former ally.
