Everything We Read This Week – 10/24/2018

Everything We Read This Week – 10/24/2018

Welcome back as we make our weekly trip through this week’s pull-list. It features mostly spoiler-free brief analysis and commentary of each book.

As we keep saying, there are plenty of good comics out there, a lot of Spider books for sure. Make sure you go find some. Hopefully, you might find what we say interesting enough to try some of these comics. This is a big list this week as we are finally starting to catch up on our unwieldy pull-list.

Also, Don’t forget to check our hotlist of new books debuting this month over here. You will see books that we were looking forward to with the designation Hot #1 by them.

DISCLAIMER: 

There is a 4 star rating system. It is simple and not to be taken too seriously as everyone gets their own impressions of art. These ratings are just to give our readers an idea of what we thought of the book, and they will be on the generous side normally. So don’t expect to see a lot of 1 Stars. After all, its not often that you have a bad book on your pull-list.

The rating system is as follows:

Great

 Good

 OK

 Not Good

And here are the books we read in alphabetical order:

[Deadline] Brendan Fraser Cast As Robotman In Doom Patrol Series

[Deadline] Brendan Fraser Cast As Robotman In Doom Patrol Series

Brendan Fraser has been cast as one of the leads, Robotman/Cliff Steele, in DC Universe’s upcoming live-action series Doom Patrol, from Greg Berlanti and Warner Bros TV

Fraser will voice Robotman & play Steele in flashbacks. Doom Patrol will be a spin-off of DC Universe’s first live action series, Titans. Jake Michaels played Cliff Steele/Robotman in the first season of Titans, so the (re)casting breaks continuity.

The steaming service’s series will also feature Cyborg, played by Joivan Wade, who is not Ray Fisher the guy who plays Cyborg in the movies. However, it is unclear if the DC Universe universe is yet another separate universe, I have a sinking feeling it is.

Brainiac On Banjo #004: Do WHAT To Batman?

Brainiac On Banjo #004: Do WHAT To Batman?

One of the least surprising announcements made at the just-concluded San Diego Comic Con was the detailed debut of the forthcoming DC Universe streaming service.

The short reveal: this service will deliver a bunch of brand-new superhero teevee shows (Titans, The Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing, Young Justice: Outsiders, Harley Quinn, and Stargirl), evidently dumping most of an entire “season” at once in Netflix-like action. They’ll also offer much of their massive library feature-length movies, both animated and live action, and television shows, both animated and live action. You’ll be able to read various DC Comics right there on the screen, participate in discussions, look-up stuff in their encyclopedia, take a shot at a contest or two, and, surprise, buy all sorts of exclusive crap.

All of this happens for a mere $7.95 a month, or the cost of about two DC superhero comics. If you’re my age that probably seems high, but your mileage may vary. You get a 20% discount if you order a year in advance. There’s an even better deal going if you give them your money right now, trusting them to provide sufficient bang for your buck.

They showed a couple of trailers at SDCC because that’s what you do at SDCC. The big takeaway last week – their Titans trailer is 1:52 minutes of violent quick-cuts built around Robin’s verbalized oath “Fuck Batman!”

Well, the trailer is TV-MA. I guess that stands for “Mature Adults,” which is funny because such language often is perceived as immature. To me, a TV-MA is Barbara Billingsley. But (Hi, Peter!) I digress.

You might think Robin would never say “Fuck Batman.” Holy euphemism, Bat-fan! I find that impossible to believe. Continue reading “Brainiac On Banjo #004: Do WHAT To Batman?”
