Inked by Jamie Mendoza, Keith Champagne and Norm Rapmund

Picking up from last issue of Superman, an alien who can shape shift is being taken in by SHADE by Frankenstein, with the help of Lois Lane and the Man of Steel. Hey, it is his book after all.  But just when you thought things couldn't get even more out of hand, it does! Frankenstein's Bride shows up! Shes's got four arms and guns to match and she's blasting the alien (Kroog) to hell. Well, she's a bounty hunter now that she divorced Frankenstein. Bummer.

Comics Rant: Mighty Thor #14

Mighty Thor #14
Written by Jason Aaron
Drawn by Steve Epting
Colored by Frank Martin

Well, would you look at that. A Marvel comic that is hitting into the double digits. Better not get too used to this. You just know a new #1 is hiding around the corner waiting to ruin your collecting life. But that's not the most pressing thing going on here. Malekith is still waging war with the League of Realms and Thor. Also, kicking ass on the light elves, too. Which makes him the worst because, well, he did marry their queen and become their ruler. Ouch.

I say, damn, there are a great deal of ads in comic books these days. Shit, they don't even go to great lengths to hide them anymore. I guess with sales shrinking, they gotta get that money anyway they can. Much like a pimp in the night. Other than that let's talk about this issue of Superman. First off, I really enjoyed the fact that they were able to incorporate Frankenstein here. I haven't seen homeboy

Comics Rant: All Star Batman #5

All Star Batman #5
Written by Scott Snyder
Pencils by John Romita Jr.
Inked by Danny Miki, Tom Palmer, Sandra Hope & Richard Friend
Colors by Dean White

Well, I'm not going to lie to any of you. I really had no damn clue as to what was going on in this issue of All Star Batman. I mean, I understood parts of it, but you know, the whole thing was really strange. I think Scott Snyder has traded bodies with Grant Morrison or Brian Michael Bendis, just said, "Fuck It," and just started sending scripts even if they are good or not. Then, he ran to the local bank to cash his check before anyone noticed just what the hell was going on.
