    General Krang's identity is revealed as he prepares to confront Stockman on an unrealized promise. Mikey and Raph get some pizza while sharing some brotherly quality time together on the town. Leo, Don, and Splinter find themselves attacked by mousers, and Casey and April have "a moment." That's the short version of the lengthy story...you'll want to actually read the issue for the details that make the story so worthwhile.

    The art seems a little bit "off" in a way I can't quite find the words for...and yet, I still like the style. I think that's my continued weakness for the TMNT...even what would sour me on any other title I have far more tolerance when it's found in TMNT. ...

    I'd already decided some weeks back that this was going to be my final issue for this series for now. While lightly intrigued at the cover to #7 and the new creative team, after realizing belatedly I'd stockpiled 3 issues (#s 3-5) without "missing" the title, I figured I'd finish out the opening arc and call it a day.

    So in that regard, I certainly did not go into this issue with a mindset to be particularly "Wow"ed nor was I looking for anything to convince me to come back for another issue. But what I found was a story that starts out with me apparently having missed one, maybe two issues' worth of action (At least a Superboy issue, maybe a Supergirl issue as well?) and so I'm put off anyway by that. Though I'm thankful for the editor's notes/"footnotes," I don't like the lack of notation that I should have read certain issues before this ...

    I happened to peek this week at the Comixology app on my phone, and noticed the cover image of this. I'd seen it somewhere else recently as well, and was kinda intrigued. Something about the timing led me to the decision to buy this, just to see what's up with Bane here, and if this maybe had a flashback. I was getting ready to buy the digital copy when it dawned on me: I was NOT going to have time to read this before I got to the comic store, so might as well wait and have a physical copy if I was gonna pay full price.

    Turns out, I should've passed on this entirely.

    As I understand the New 52, Batman's story is relatively intact from the old DCU, just that his history's compressed into 5 years, but most of it still happened. This issue specifically confirms that Batman has fought Bane before, and had his back broken, though no actual details of the rest of the events surrounding that. ...

    Upon seeing this issue in my stack this week, I realized I probably oughtta catch up on this title. The last issue I'd read before this week was the first issue after the Dark Angel Saga (first of the "Regenesis era") and probably enjoyed this largely for being part of a larger chunk read in one go, as the single issues seem largely to be forgettable to me. This issue is the third part of what seems to be another 4-part story, of X-Force in Otherworld with the Captain Britain Corps.

    Captain Britain Brian Maddox kidnapped Psylocke and Fantomex to put Fantomex on trial for killing the boy Apocalypse. Meanwhile, the Corps is facing an invasion from some undead/demonic horde, and the rest of X-Force is caught up in the battle against that horde, trying to save the innocent "regular folks" of the realm. We find out the 'scoop' on the main villain of this arc and his connection to Otherworld and the Weapon Plus program. ...

    The trouble with 2-issue minis is that there's gotta be more going on than just what you'd have in a quick one-shot; and being two issues is a whole different thing than a double-sized one-shot...to me, at least. All the more here, as the characters are new to me, and I think actually new characters, period: barely begin to get to know what they're about and the story's over with.

    After the setup stuff in the first issue, this picks up with our elven friend and dwarf facing a city of madness, one of the Old Ones having appeared in the sky and causing all this trouble. The two figure out a way they might be able to stop this giant threat from destroying everything they know, which leads to them kidnapping a bunch of wizards and putting them to work on the plan. And though things don't go quite as smoothly as they'd hope, there is a quick conclusion, and they're left to bicker like some odd couple.

    I love the concept: IDW has the license to a number of different properties, so have some multi-dimensional crisis, and it can affect all these different planes, which means that without crossing the characters themselves over with each other, it can still be one big story that involves all these properties. ...

    Archer
    Episode 309 –Bloody Ferlin
    Aired February23rd, 2012
    10 PM, FX

    Although the title of this episode may make you think this episode is a parody of FX's other really great show, Justified, it's not. Well, it is if you limit it to the episode's title alone. No, as Archer says, it's closer in spirit to White Lightning, an old Burt Reynolds film (well of course). Archer and Lana respond to a break in at ISIS's armory,only to find the person responsible is Ray … who is no longer confined to a wheelchair. Seems he never needed it at all, it was just that everyone assumed he was since he left the hospital in one,and he figured he'd play along, if only to screw with them. Kind of a cheat, but I'll allow it, because everybody in ISIS is a vaguely horrible human being in some respect. (Malory may have no redeeming qualities whatsoever.)


    Anyhoo, it seems Ray's brother down in West Virginia is a pot farmer, and a dirty local Sheriff is threatening to kill him and take over his operation, so Ray is going to help him, because that's what family does. Even though Ray isn't all that wild about his brother, who also thinks he's straight and married to a woman. Archer decides to help because it sounds a bit like the plot of White Lightning, and because he's thinking of moonshine and hot to trot farmer's daughters.
