Batman Ninja

T’was the night before GenCon,
And all through the halls,
Many people were stirring, because the setup was still happening and 70,000 people would be descending on the Indianapolis Convention Center in the morning and stuff wasn’t done yet.

(Hey, when I started writing this I’d just gotten back from a 3-day drive and was back on the road a day later. If you want poetry you’re in the wrong place.)

Anywhoo, there I was chatting with people and the setup crew was working away, coordinating 2 lifts to put up this giant 20′ x 30′ banner. They were having some technical difficulties, so we had sort of stopped to watch. What was on this giant banner, you may wonder? Well my rambling usually brings us to a point, so the banner was for Batman Ninja.

Eventually, I made it around to Bush...

Wonder Twins #4-5

Writer: Mark Russell

Artist: Stephen Byrne

Letterer: Dave Sharpe

Can I just start by saying wow? The Wonder Twins team has been knocking it out of the park. They’ve managed to ride a very fine line between episodic and serialized stories, with some interesting foreshadowing. At the same time, the whole thing is a light, fun romp.

In issue #4 Jayna’s friend, Polly Math, blows away their school science fair with a presentation on the inevitable evolution of the internet into a living, conscious, being. By the end of the science fair, both Jayna and Zan end up with a date later that night.

Zan’s date goes, well in many ways. They go out to dinner, then a movie...

Dial H for Hero #3

Dial H for Hero from DC seems to get a reboot every other year. That’s because it is about a magical dial, the H-dial, which allows a person to become a hero by dialing H-E-R-O. The dial causes its possessor to become a superhero with a new name, costume, and unique powers—every time.

Wonder Twins #3

Writer: Mark Russell
Artist: Stephen Byrne
Letterer: Dave Sharpe

The (mis)adventures of Zan and Jayna continue in Wonder Twins #3, and this series continues to be Wonder-ful (not even sorry about that pun.)

After a <quote> successful <unquote> first mission in issue #2, issue #3 gives us a perfect blend of action, character development, and plot development. Zan is pretty much just Zan, but Jayna meets a new friend who will probably destroy her in the school science fair, before having an alien heart to alien heart with Superman. There’s also a remarkable amount of backstory to Gleek, which is a pleasant surprise.

The League of Annoyance returns, and are out for retribution for their fallen associate, Drunkula (Sorry, Baron Nightsomethingorother)...
