How do you like the new header and my new icon? I made them myself. Snazzy, huh? It was due, with how this blog has grown in so little time and for the next big changes on the horizon. What big changes? Well, for starters, I'm going to need your help with something, my dear readers/followers/etc... I'm sure you're going to have a blast with it! Also, soon a brand new section of this site is going to come to life. Last time that happened has been for Corridor of Uncertainty, so... Make your math! In the meanwhile, though, I'm going to share with you just what is making me have a blast, in these days. I give you my review of Red Hood & the Outlaws #7!
This series just keeps on getting better, and better, and it manages to do so by keeping you wanting to come back for more! In this issue, Jason and Co drop off their latest enemy off at Arkham Asylum with a pretty geeky camouflage on Jay's part, followed by a discussion and subsequent fight with Jason's acquaintance Essence. Now, the following months are going to be filled with awesome. We will have the gang fighting in Gotham, an overgrown mob boss daughter first, the Court of Owls and a brand newly designed Mister Freeze then. After that, the gang is going into space. I know that nowadays space-travel in comics is as common as shit, but what really gets me going is that this team is going into space.
Although, that's not what I'm looking forward to the most. What I'm looking forward to most of anything else is the continuation of what looks to be established as the main plot of this series, the fight of Jason, last scion of the All Caste, against the evil Untitled. If it was interesting before this issue, now that Essence has revealed how many Untitled are left and just how the All Caste and Ducra – Jason's teacher – are connected to them, I am positively giddy. This series has all the right cards to shape and snake like a freaking old school RPG. I don't think I've ever been this excited about a Comic Book, especially one where mostly everything in it is new and original. This issue gets a 8/10 from me if only because yeah, the fight with Essence lacked a certain Omph, but the bait of future epicness Lobdell has brushed under our noses more than makes up for it. Go hoodies!
Meinos Kaen out!
