My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hey, this is not half bad. I will never be a real fan of the Supes/WW ship, but I can read it. Especially when the Kent looks delicious in the occasional panel.
Current comic boyfriend ranking:

2. Batman
3. Aquaman
4. Superman…when someone draws him right

Spider-Man/Deadpool, Vol. 1: Isn’t it Bromantic by Joe Kelly

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well that was surprisingly really fun.
I much prefer puns and slightly intellectual jokes to Deadpool’s brand of risque humor, but this one made me snicker to myself a lot.

The story follows Deadpool in his attempts to befriend Spiderman, who quit the Avengers for some vague reason I don’t get. Of course, since this is Deadpool, his ulterior motives have ulterior motives, so things are fairly complicated.

Ahem.

There are two kinds of people in the world: the ones who believe Batman is the real personality and the ones that believe Batman is the persona.

Ok, the latter camp is something I made up, but it was a cool way to open the review.

Anyway, I belong to the third faction (population: 1) that believes that neither Batman nor Bruce Wayne is the real person, but something in between, a mixed personality that we never get to see.

Sunstone Vol.1 by Stjepan Šejić

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

For some reason, I’ve decided this is the cat gif review. (shrugs)

Sunstone deals with what some people might call uncomfortable topics, but which will surprise no one who is acquainted with:
(a) fanfiction
(b) M/M romances
(c) anime fan-girls

I happen to be one of those people.

Power Girl: Power Trip by Jimmy Palmiotti

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

So…I dived into the latest Shallow buddy-read.

No one better than Power Girl to fulfil the criterion of an embarrassing amount of cleavage on display, am I right? I mean, she’s on the banner and all.
Though at this point it’s gone beyond the event horizon of cleavage…

What in the world is this story?

On paper, I agree it seems like a great idea…Darkseid vs another evil titan and this conflict taking place on Earth.

But the reality was more like…

Unpopular review time!

Am I the only one who wasn’t that impressed with this volume?

Scrolls through friends’ reviews

Yep.

To clarify, it wasn’t bad, I just thought it didn’t live up to the first two volumes of the series. Or the last. Not all of it, anyway.
