So, uh, I kind of went a little overboard with the reviews this week, everybody. Sorry about that. It just so happens that a metric ton of my favorite Marvel comics all come out on the same day, and I didn’t want to skip over any of them! So be prepared for everything from Amazing Spider-Man to Unstoppable Wasp to Mosaic to the final issue of Power Man and Iron Fist! Plus I wanted to try out a couple more ResurrXion comics.
Fortunately, this week also delivered one of the best issues of Silver Surfer yet, an easy Comic Book of the Week! That comic is magical! Silver Surfer #10 combines tragic romance with all my favorite bits of Silver Surfer mythology, making for a wonderful issue.
Meanwhile, I really, really, really want to get back into reading more DC Comics. Now that Gotham Academy is coming to an end and Greg Rucka is leaving Wonder Woman, I’m going to try to get caught up on those two series so I can review them through the end.
Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #26, Detective Comics #954, Mosaic #7, Power Man and Iron Fist #15, Silver Surfer #10, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #19, Unstoppable Wasp #4, Weapon X #1 and X-Men Blue #1.
Not only has R’as al Ghul been confirmed for Arrow Season 3, but just yesterday they announced the casting of actor Matt Nable. I have no idea who that is, but he’s no Liam Neeson.
I’m perfectly happy with this casting. Like everyone else, I’d probably have preferred that they actually cast someone of R’as’ actual comic book ethnicity, but what do I know? I’m not some big shot Hollywood executive. I’m sure this Nable guy will do a fine job with the role. Arrow is usually pretty awesome when it comes to casting. Plus, how cool is it going to be to have R’as al Ghul on Arrow? That should be all manner of awesome.
And if you needed a reminder of awesomeness, there’s a new trailer for Season 3!
Looks freakin’ fantastic! Cannot wait!
