    Holyyyyyyyyyyyy shit.

    IC is really heating up. Alex merging worlds. Black Adam doing whatever the hell he did to Psycho Pirate. Emoboy Prime.

    Connor. :cry . Titans 34 confirmed that Conner indeed is dead. But.....Tim's working on re-cloning him :peoples: 

    Gar's off with the Doom Patrol. Raven's MIA, as is Kory. Cassie's at odds with everyone since losing Connor. Man, if it's a crime to be in love with a comic character, lock me up for my lust of Wonder Girl.

    he pushed the mask clear through the guy's head! it was awesome. :thumb 


    But yeah, the whole iss was just too awesome for this lowly mortal to put into words...

    I was afraid TT might lose me w/o Bart and Conner, but I actually enjoyed it and can't wait to see where it goes (a lot of OYL is rubbing me like that actually)

    No more silly faces. :lol 

    Issue #6 was quite possibly the best one yet; so many great moments. I love the beginning with Hal and Olli just standing around the bug, the whole "The world's ending. What do you want to do next week?" bit was wonderful.

    Also, it was nice to see PeeGee stop being a decorative wall-hanging and start kicking ass again. I missed my Power Girl. :( 

    I knew Conner's death was coming, but it still worked really well. Big thumbs up for how they pulled off that scene. Can't wait to see the throwdown with Superboy Emo next month.

    As for TT, it seems like a promising start. Tony Daniel was my all-time favorite X-Force artist, and I've been hoping to see more of his work. The last couple pages provide a really nice twist, too. I'll definitelys tick around to see where this is going.

    The new line-up looks good, but I have one small quibble... WENDY AND MARVIN!? :sly2:

    This was a total kick ass issue. That final scene with him and Cassie was really moving. I think in that one instance, stopping Superboy Prime, Connor stop being Superboy and became the Superman that the Multiverse needed.
    I havent read Titans 34, but I'm wondering if Superboy Prime gets wacked, and Tim uses those cells to reclone Connor, ineffect making him truely Superboy.

    I've been pretty hard on DC for all the "lookit, gruesome death of B-grade character!" going on in IC, but Psycho Pirate's demise actually didn't feel quite as crappy. Black Adam got to be badass, and PP finally got what he had coming since the original Crisis.

    I knew I shouldn't have looked but ofcourse dunno what causes it yet so that helps. Tomorrow is my comic run day so here's hoping local shop has a few copies left.

    Funny though, I just finished reading about some huge court deal about the rights to Superboy at Comicbookresources.

    I love the fact they made a statue of Connor at TT tower. Oh the irony.

    I just realized something while reading the DC message boards: On the last few pages when Alex says he's found "You" (The last Earth he needs to make the perfect Earth) He is talking about our real world! That's why he is gazing right at YOU, the reader, and reaching his hands out of the panel to grab you. So that means that Conner also saved all of us in the REAL world! That's so cool. :rock

    I'm starting to suspect that the whole point of IC is a grand commentary on how realworld comic patrons, comapnies, and stories have fucked up things so badly. Why else choose "Our" Superpoy to be the villain. This is all a metaphor for the need for continuity among comic book readers.

    Yes, that was cool as hell. :D  I didn't wanna mention it because I was wondering how many people caught that.

    I actually double-took. -That- is how you break the fourth wall in a non-intentionally-comedic way.
