If the trinity weren't a thing, would she make a better member of the JLA than Wonder Woman?

For reasons other than her 10/10 rack

 No.734

Also her backstory would need a semi-rewrite to compare with the likes of Superman, Batman, GL and the Flash, but if you just had her effectively fall out of a hypertime portal, that would be fine. She just has the problem of not having a history or rogues gallery thanks to countless rewrites and ALWAYS being on a team.

She's just so much better than wondy.

It was going like arrow, with the patteron of "pretty good season 1, REALLY good season 2 with a dangerous ending that worries everyone", but they seemed to dodge the torture-fest that was arrow season 3.

On the bright side, Jesse Quick will probably die, or at least the Jesse+Wally pairing, so they can set him up with Linda. What's really weird is that this is now a different Wally West. Nu52 Wally and real Wally have been retroactively made into new characters by Rebirth. So this wally was technically never The Flash. But technically that Wally isn't Iris's brother either, so who knows.

Since Black Flash is 'dead' now, I'm waiting for a shoop of pic related if he puts on the costume

Oh yeah, and I'm really hoping they take a page from rebirth and give us Godspeed after that speed force lightning storm. That would be a good way to kill off Jesse too.

What /co/mics are you currently reading?

Pic related. I'm reading through this run of Lady Death. I'm unfamiliar with the character, but this origin story is interesting. If I stick with it and read the original stories I'll be able to see how much they got wrong while making this origin story.

Isn't she just one of those pseudo-porn characters like tarot?

In the stories I'm reading she's got a lot of Red Sonja going on. Though that image I posted is from book #5, and I posted it before I read it. Book #5 did this weird thing where it republished an old story in it, and it was very much crap.

I think this Origins line is from 2015, so there's a lot skin shown, but the dialogue and story is also there. It's interesting and though she's sexy, it's not the main focus and there is thought in the storyline.

Though in the old story that I just read, it seems like someone just drew a bunch of Lady Death images and someone added words to the page later. All of her poses in it are incredibly unrealistic (I don't mean fantasized, I mean she'll be talking to someone, then all of a sudden she's twisting her whole body so that both her butt and tits are facing the character she's conversing with) and seem to be there just for the artist that wanted to jerk off, and then someone later had to try and make sense of the images by adding dialogue.

So, like Red Sonja, I assume the series has some runs that are story driven with a sexy main charater, and other runs are just like reading playboy issues where every panel is a pose. Unfortunately, it seems that in the "playboy" style story that was in this collection, the art wasn't great. At least if it's going to be a series of provocative poses, they could have got a better artist.

Marvel Comics typically cancel books if they don't sell over 20k a month. Below is a list of books from Marvel that aren't hitting that goal and have the potential to be ended, or have already been canceled (denoted with an *).

There are a lot of books that are in trouble. When you hear people talk about Marvel being in a sales slump, this is what they mean. Source is Cosmic Book News. There's also a recurring theme with many of these stories.

Here is some more information from April. Interesting tidbits in here, but in the case of Marvel, the sold 5% more than DC, but published 20% more comics.

Not to imply that Marvel is going anywhere. Disney is raking in tons of money off of the movies.

Interesting, and scary, is that sales in April were way down. Not just compared to March, but also to April the year below. Toy sales dropped 45% month to month and 20% year over year. That can't excite anyone that works in the industry, especially local comic shops.

They're just going to pick back up after the reboot, which is 100% going to happen.

I actually have no problem with that, since that's what Inhumans comics have been like for some time. But for fuck's sake, Black Bolt's costume is so good. And they ruined it.

I'm almost certain they're not even going to call him Black Bolt.

Yes. Captain America books have historically reflected the state of the USA and now that the country is ran by a fascist, authoritorian, dictator for a leader Captain America is a part of Hydra. The story will obviously progress so that unemployed fat trannies rally to bring Captain America back and right his ship.

It's also a shitty story that 1 out of 75 Captain America fans are enjoying.

Definitely picking up this one. Youngblood was one of hte most exciting comics in the '90s, especially with the formation of Image Comics and how important that was at the time. I feel Rob Liefeld's creations really shine when others take and expand on the worlds he established, and that looks like what is going to happen with this new Youngblood book.

Other books I am picking up this week include.

>Lady Mechanika TPB Vol 3


This is a series I like so much I even own the coloring book. Joe Benitez is one of the most overlooked artists, and Lady Mechanika is his creation. It's a steampunk style adventure that follows a cybernetic woman and her journeys. Each volume is a complete story, so having to read any of the previous books is unnecessary.

>Lady Mechanika's investigation into the murders of 'undesirable' children in Mechanika City triggers an unexpected reaction from her subconscious self. But are they truly lost memories finally surfacing after so many years, or just simple nightmares? And what connection does the killer have to Lady Mechanika's past? Collects the complete third Lady Mechanika mini-series, The Lost Boys of West Abbey, including extra pages which were not published in the original comic books.


Will also be picking up
