    The Question is Badass. :dj 

    Discuss.


    (Really liking it so far, but I could do without them making Booster Gold seem like even more of an ass than he really is.)

    This book has everything. A kickass version of the Question and Lesbian sex!!11 Really liking it so far, can't wait to see what's causing the messed up time stream that's screwing skeets up.

    I am a little disappointed by the history of the DCU at the end. I was hoping it would have been more profile style, and each book would have given the "new" origin of all the big DCU characters.

    It took me about 15 minutes to finish reading both pages of the lesbian bedroom scene, and it wasn't becasue it had too many words... :redface2:

    I thought it was weird in the first panel the blonde was in, she was compeletly nude, then a bra appeared randomly. Ah, horn dog.

    I love the book. Booster is a great character because he is just so stupid. He's like that kid that always gets picked last but really really wants to upstage everyone.

    I was disappointed, too. I was hoping we'd get to see what has changed, not just another recap of the pre-Crisis multiverse. Maybe there are some people out there who don't know about that, but it's not exactly a long-forgotten secret.

    The rest of the issue was solid, though. I love seeing Ralph in the spotlight again. Here's hoping they're going to give him Sue back.

    The Question is awesome, but I keep thinking about Rorscach when I see him. Hopefully that'll stop happening once I get to know the Question better.

    Lesbians. :D

    That's probably because Rorschach was based on The Question. Moore originally wanted to use the Charlton comic characters for his story that eventually became "Watchmen" but was unable to do so because of character trademarks, or some such thing.

    Heh...wasn't aware Montoya munched carpet. Though I'm only really familiar with her away from the GCPD in the DCAU.

    Forget Question and Booster, I'm just really happy to see Ralph getting some spotlight again. (Other than Identity Crisis).

    He's had a few series/miniseries. He doesn't sell well enough for his own consistent series.

    Maybe after 52, he will. He is much more badass than Batman, who is a dick.

    Not really to fussy about this series.

    I picked up Infinate Crisis on a whim, and while good, it was hard to follow as I didn't know half of the cast due to me mainly staying in Marvels camp.

    And now that IC's over I'm going back to Marvel and staying there.

    I think a Question series would be great now. After his JLU appearence, and full year as Gotham's guardian he'd be ripe for a full come back. huzzah

    If they can give a crappy new Blue Beetle a series, they can give the Question one.

    Well that ... and what Moore intended to DO with the characters.

    It was decided killing ringers would be a better idea. :wink:

    I read through Infinite Crisis and thought it was okay to really cool throughout. I had only borrowed issues and would rather wait for the trade to get that series. I never read Identity Crisis, but I'll eventually either borrow or buy the trade.

    Was gonna skip out on 52 because of the cost, but lo and behold! I had signed up for a 52 raffle at a local comic book shop on Free Comic Book Day and they notified me just a few days ago that I won! So free 52 issues for the year! I've yet to pick up any of them, been busy and all with other things, but if they're free and I'm stopping in anyway for the last few series I am buying (Astonishing X-Men, Ult. Wolverine v. Hulk, Dracula v. King Arthur, possibly Civil War and Moon Knight), then I'll definitely grab 'em. Notice though that most of the stuff I'm buying isn't DC... (though I did like the art on Supergirl #5 and 6 enough to buy them).
