current mood: moody
I replaced two icons-one of them being my default icon, as is evidenced way too many times below-due to the turmoil I'm currently in. Yet, as promised, here are my thoughts on the aforementioned issues:
Nightwing #111: This is supposed to be a book that focuses on the title character. Yet, while I'm pleased that the panels did just that-focused mainly on Nightwing, and he was in costume for most of this issue-for nearly 1/2 of it, the thoughts were on the letter to Dick from Sophia (I think that's what her name is; I stopped picking up Nightwing after 100 and only came back because of #110). I enjoyed the way Deathstroke was brought in at the climax of the issue, which will inevitably lead to the clash between the two in #112.
Supergirl #0: The issue left me feeling partly disappointed, since the name of the book is SUPERGIRL, yet the thoughts were left exactly the same when this had been released as Superman/Batman #19; I had been hoping that the thoughts in this rerelease would be the Girl of Steel's. I did like that the cover was a pure white background, though, and noticed the pages were placed in different places than they'd been in Superman/Batman #19.
Supergirl #1: The issue I had been waiting for since early 2005, and I wasn't at all disappointed! I enjoyed the part where Kara mentioned, if only briefly, about the past Supergirls-Linda Danvers, Cir-El; I doubt that would include Kara Zor-El from pre-Crisis, however-and that this time around, the book showed us her thoughts. The battle with Power Girl was...interesting, to say the least. I liked how it ended in a draw of sorts, and was reminded of the 6-issue Supergirl from Krypton saga in last year's Superman/Batman when Power Girl mentioned that she'd sensed something dark inside Kara while atop the Statue of Liberty.
The way this issue ended was stunning, to say the least-Superboy coming out to see Supergirl, and the first words out of his mouth were "Turn back now. I'm not going to ask you twice." First impressions must've changed a lot between them-unbeknownst to Kara-since their meeting on Paradise Island. Plus, it leads into Supergirl #2, the issue I'm on pins and needles for now. The quote for this weekend comes from Nightwing #111 and Supergirl #1.
"I can't even begin to imagine the trouble you must be in." -Deathstroke, Nightwing #111
"...I can tell this is going to go well..." -Kara Zor-El, Supergirl #1
