First and foremost: Jorge Jackson Goes to Hollywood Panel #10.So,
it's the Friday before Halloween, which means I've got another amazing
costume that you're jealous of just rearing to go. I'll be dressing as
Jack Burton from Big Trouble in Little China,
continuing my two-year tradition of going as Kurt Russel characters
from John Carpenter movies. Yeah, no, I know you're jealous, you don't
have to tell me.
(Yes, you're jealous, I think we've already established that!)
My Weekly Comic Book Reading List!
Blackest Night #4: I was a huge fan
of Sinestro Corps War, but this shit is spinning its wheels. Perhaps
it's because DC spoiled the "big bad" months ago? Well, that's
certainly part of it.
Green Lantern #47: This is fantastic
and, by the way, not at all in danger of "spinning its wheels." There's
forward plot momentum like nobody's business, character interactions
that fascinate me to no end, utterly creative surprises out the
asshole, and the art...man, I love Mahnke. Like, in a romantic sort of
Superman: Secret Origins #2: Speaking
of loving the art, Gary Frank is doing a wonderful job here. Despite
the fact that this is in continuity, I feel like it's the perfect

Anybody else getting similar vibes? No? Well, that's because you're a
big, fat asshole.
Ultimate Comics Spiderman #4: This is the most consistently good comic in all of comics, and this particular issue continues that tradition pretty beautifully.
Ultimate Avengers #3: Interesting, entertaining, but not great.
Ultimate Armor Wars #2: I love
Warren Ellis and liked the first issue quite a bit, but this was less
impressive, in my opinion. Still good, just not as impressive.
