I wish I had some kind of artistic skills. Ianto would have looked badass with a jetpack.

I picked up my comic books yesterday, for the first time in about two months. I had quite the stack, and I really enjoyed them. I culled some of the crap from my pull list, and there's been a marked improvement in a couple of the titles I was beginning to get impatient with.

I got the new Torchwood comic, but I haven't read it yet because I have to read them in alphabetical order. It's a thing. I'll get to it tonight, probably. (I also got the new Torchwood mag, so I can finally read the second half of Shrouded. We'll see how that goes, too.)

I'm really disgustingly happy to have Birds of Prey back, fugly-ass filler art aside (seriously, Benes? sleep on the job much?) and Fables is continuing to rock, since I've finally swallowed my pride and started reading it again after Bill Willingham pissed me off. I need to just stop reading creator interviews.

I have thoughts on X-Factor regarding characterization, relationships, the probability of someone getting knocked up every single time they have sex, and a sort of backwards comparison of the Rictor/Shatterstar relationship to the Jack/Ianto relationship. It really needs its own post.

Ianto with a jetpack = yesplz.

Oh, Bill Willingham. Nothing more disappointing than having someone whose work you love make you angry. Like yesterday when I found out that Felicia Day has always hated Inspector Gadget. *cries*

How can you hate Inspector Gadget? That's like hating Santa Claus.

Ah, Shrouded. The end is...interesting, to say the least.

I hope the stuff you got is satisfactory! :D

I just finished reading it. I'm not sure what just happened. I think I liked it? But. Just. Yeah. (BACKDOOR FIXIT.)

Hahaha yeah, I actually laughed out loud and then went WAIT WHAT.

I thought that the story needed a tighter focus or more length to explore the ideas presented. But overall, still fun, if only for OMFG JOHN HART. :D

Yeah, I dug the story, but it definitely could have been an arc versus a one-shot. That also would have given me a better chance to drool at the art. (AND OH GOD THE SCENE IN THE FIRST PART WITH IANTO AND OWEN IN THE HUB GAVE ME NOSTALGIA-FACE SO FREAKING BAD.)

Also going to admit that I was not being a good reader and conceptualizing when it was set and assumed Owen was Jack at first and was like WOW WHY DOES JACK LOOK SO OWEN-Y.

I think Owen is tough to draw. He never really looks like himself. I was a little bummed that we didn't see Tosh at all (unless you count her laid out on the slab, which... *sniffle*).
