Identity Crisis

693 views • Dec 11, '09 • (4) Comments

Holy ...what an awesome series! I often give DC for being too corny/cartoony (can you blame me with names like Dr. Light and Mr. Miracle?), but I've never read a Marvel series that has felt this real or this emotional. The plight of Sue Dibny and the JLA is tragic and fantastic. My only regret is that the villain didn't end up being as sinister as I'd hoped. But regardless, a definite must read for any fan of powerful storytelling.

Review of "Emperor Joker"

2271 views • Sep 21, '09 • (1) Comment

This weekend I finished reading the "Emperor Joker" hardcover. First off, I'm mainly Marvel as I tend to find DC to be kind of cartoony and otherworldy compared to the more "realistic" feel of Marvel. Anyway, I thought it was a decent read, though a bit confusing at times (as I find many DC titles if you aren't well-versed in DC mythos). I did enjoy the wackiness of it all and the many humorous elements, reflecting the plot of the Joker as emperor of all creation. I also found the pitting of the Joker against Superman to be a nice change up; Batman takes a backseat for much of the story until the end when he does come back with a boom. Either way, it was interesting to see the Boy Scout, nice guy persona of Superman battling against the chaos and insanity of the Joker. Again, I don't read a lot of DC, but from what I know of Superman, it seems a change of pace for him to deal with someone with like the Joker, who is so completely unhinged yet at the same time often more sane than everyone else.
Overall, I would recommend this title for more of a fun read than anything. Good for a laugh or two.
