If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you may already be aware that I’ve been dealing with a week of the miserable hell that is computer failure over the past few days, and as a result, I haven’t been able to do my usual shameless self-promotion here on the ISB. Then again, if you’ve been following me on Twitter, you’ve already seen some of this stuff anyway, so… You know what? Let’s just get to the stuff I wrote this week.
Bizarro Back Issues: Batman and Kamandi’s Post-Apocalyptic Team-Up: I’ve been doing these Classic ISB style posts on specific issues that I think are hilarious lately, and in honor of DC finally putting out that Kamandi hardcover last week, I wrote a little about a Haney/Aparo joint where Batman went to the future and pretended to lead a gang of gorillas. It’s a pretty good one.
X-Men Schism: Long after I thought I was immune, I have totally been sucked into an X-Men Event, thanks to the magic of Jason Aaron. Read up on why I think Schism has been great. HINT: Robots.
Flash #1: Just so you don’t think I’m a straight up hater of the New 52 (and not just a, you know, 4/5 hater), here’s another review of a first issue I really did like: Francis Manapul and Brian Buccelato’s Flash #1. Even Boring Allen (get it?!?!?!) couldn’t slow this one down.
Ask Chris #74: Super-Pets A-Go-Go! Once again, I get asked about DC’s Silver Age super-animals, and I make a judgment call against the Dog Knight. Do people call Ace that? The Dog Knight? Because they should.
