Hammie ended up getting a copy of the new Birds of Prey and it is a solid three out of five stars for me. Solid, decent, but nothing to blow your socks off. Still, I'm waiting to get the earlier stuff Gail wrote for birds of prey, so we will see.
Reactions will come later. This will be like someone making an "All Your Base Are Belong to Us" joke to some of you here but dangit, Hammie needs to see what the fuss is about, outdated or not!
While I'm not sure if I'm as rabid about Gail as Witchslasher there with the dictionary thing but I certainly agree that if you can find any Gail Simone stuff... PICK IT UP.
I'm not really sure how I feel about the current BoP lineup. I love Ivy ...as a baddie. Not sure how I feel about the current turn around, even though I dont expect it to last for long. The others outside of Dinah I really dont have a emotional investment in so I wouldnt lose sleep if they swapped out.
I'm going to have to agree. She's a villain. She's great as a villain. I'm used to rooting against her.
Every now and then there comes a character that can straddle that line (like Catwoman) but generally characters are better off as either good or evil. IMHO many people have tried and failed to make a character 'morally gray' since that's been 'trendy' (how many video games proudly claim to give 'morally gray' material, etc) but end up making one that leans one way or the other. Every trend eventually exhausts itself eventually.
We should root against Ivy but like her Maybe she'll do something later on...we'll just have to see.
EDIT: And just because I forgot to say it earlier...EMO EMO EMO EMO! These dang kids! Grr! Get off my lawn!
Valiant is back? Oh my. Some folks just don't learn. The speculator market they helped create is dead, dead, dead, which means they'll have to find something better than variant zero issue covers to drive their sales this time.
I'll be unavailable for the next few days as Thursday marks the start of the annual BOGA game retreat when I will be playing boardgames all day long and not doing online stuff at all. I will return either Sunday night or Monday morning
