My moment of the week was seeing scans from Beta Ray Bill: Godhunter, wherein Bill was written surprisingly well and I was getting a Walt Simonson Beta Ray Bill feeling from the scans. Enough so that I'll be looking for a copy of my own next time I'm at the shop. Surprisingly, there were no anti-moments of the week for me outside of seeing various Greg Land tracings.
Hit the jump to see these and more!
Gas or no gas, Spider-Man doesn't get hit by someone using a bow and arrow.
Bullets, my only weakness! In all seriousness, WTF! They can't honestly pane out next issue nad have it be a shot to the wrist or shoulder or something. Not sure how they're going to get around what will have to be a major copout on some level.
Beta Ray Bill: Godhunter #1
That, my friends, is Beta Ray Bill destroying a planet Galactus is trying to feed on in an attempt to starve him.
This is Beta Ray Bill pimp slapping one of Galactus's heralds after destroying the planet.
And this is Beta Ray Bill being awesome. For those unfamiliar with Mr Horseface or his level of awesome (it's higher than yours), this series looks like it could be good and a throwback to his Walt Simonson days.
Uh...How does this work? Bullseye doesn't have a healing factor...
Fantastic Four #567
*Yawn* Latveria gets blown up every second Tuesday. I think it's usually retaliation for a SHIELD helicarrier crashing or maybe the Baxter Building getting destroyed.
Giant prehistoric sharks are no match for Doom! We all know he'll be back by the end of this arc for some Marquis of Death asskicking and Reed Richards gloating.
Scuzzy, burnt/rotting flesh filled metal masks are all the rage these days.
Flash: Rebirth #3
While it's not the standard Flash/Superman race, at least it was finally settled just who's faster (and by a large margin).
No, that isn't Zoom (well, technically it is Professor Zoom, just not the Zoom we know), it's actually the Reverse Flash, Eobard Thawne, whom Barry killed after he murdered Iris (they all got better) and was who Kelson Vibber had as his first choice in his recent guest post laying out the possible mystery villains for this series.
Green Lantern Corps #37
Ion's really dead??? That doesn't sound right...
Who are these guys again? Oh ya, the Alpha Lanterns. Was wondering if they still, you know, existed post-Final Crisis.
This was one of the more interesting moments this week, but had me a bit disappointed, too. We just get one of my favourite Sinestro Corps members, Lyssa Drak, who got a name change or is paying dividends to the X-Men on this page with the Drax spelling, back and she's immediately written out again by Scar.
Was under the impression Scar simply used the book, but it looks more like it controls her than the other way around. Although, I've yet to see a consistent portrayal of her across any books, so who knows.
Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers #2
I LOVE LAMP!
Starro the Conqueror looks amazing. Not reading Rebels, but might have to just to see this guy in action.
Uncanny X-Men #511
Wow, it's the same person with three different costumes on!
I still find it a little creepy that the formerly 15 year old Layla is have sex talks now. Might just be me.
