With the Tom King train on full speed, i decided to check out Omega Men, which i ignored during it’s publication in single issues.
That title left me devastated, like any other King title, but the path to that final punch in the nuts is a fascinating one. The lines that are usuaally drawn in heavily pigmented black ink isn’t clearly defined, and in the middle of the fog of war is Kyle Raynor; trying to navigate the grey zone as well as possible.
The artwork further drives the point across that no one in this comic is acting out of true altruism. Everything seems to have taken a short bath in a black wash that won’t come off.
Great idea: twelve different artists/writer teams write an installment each month, leaving the cliffhanger to be solved by the next team. In the next issue the team from the preceding issue will write their idea of the conclusion for their cliffhanger in the letters section.
I don’t buy the paragraph about DC not being able to settle on a team for an ongoing.
That aside, i dug the issue. Picks up a lot from the classic first issue, Giffen and Eaglesham are doing their best to honor the King while retaining their styles while the story moves at a rather fast pce for our decompressed age.
Niv and i got together to start a new season of our podcast, Asteroids In Exile.
We talk about what we have been watching, trailers, Star Wars and amongst other things, we are very judgemental about the DC-Comics based movies.
Listen to it here, or tune your favourtie podcatcher.
Thank You for your time!
Let’s take a look at the stuff that will cover my corpse someday.
Shin Godzilla second form vinyl figure
I love the evolution the king of monsters goes through in Toho’s latest movie and getting this stage completes my Shin Godzilla vinyl collection.
Prices for this figure are through the roof on the secondary market when i looked, but i set an alarm on CS-Toys and got it for a justifiable price.
Black Series 6inch Sabine Wren
I wanted to quit on the six inch figures. Then Hasbro gave us Kanan and Ahsoka. Well, and now Sabine.
S.H. Figuarts K2SO
Everybody’s favourite droid (at the moment) from Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts line.
Omega Man tpb
Skipped the single issue run. But Tom King wrote it and because i was amazed by his work on the Vision i’m interested to see what he does with Kyle Rayner.
Jackie Kottwitz band 1
A german volume of Jérôme K. Jérôme Bloche, a franco-belgian comic about an aspiring detective. Since the english edition is on its way to be released later this year i got a volume of the german translation. I’ve read a story ages ago and liked it but must have lost it during moving flats.
Buffalo Classic USB-Gamepad
As mentioned in the post about the Retropie, i got a SNES like gamepad that was universally recommended by the internet.
 an alternative to the Nintendo Classic Mini
