Hibbs & The Single 11/30 (part 2)

Brian Hibbs

OK, so not “Wednesday or Thursday”, but here’s the balance of the week…

ARCHIE #627: Archie meets Kiss, huh? Can I say that Archie has changed quite a bit since the days of this…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

or this one….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The plot in this issue has the Archie Gang hanging out with Sabrina, The Teenage Witch (who has disturbingly off-Archie-Girl-model eyes and nose!), and they decide to cast a spell in order to protect the town from Monsters (this is a Very Legitimate Concern that many of today’s teenagers face!). I mean, they literally sit in a circle and cast a spell! Man, I hope for Archie’s sake that the Fundies don’t get word of this — I’m a godless liberal from San Francisco, and even I was pretty shocked that the Gang was personally involved in witchcraft. For very poorly motivated reasons, however, Veronica and Reggie instead decide that THEY should be the one to cast the spell, but instead of a “Protection” spell, she reads a “Projection” spell, instead (oh, that Ronnie! How scampish!), leading to Riverdales being infested by Archie-d versions of Universal monsters. Then Kiss shows up to stop the monsters, but you’ll have to wait until next issue to see if they do that without inadvertently killed Principal Weatherbee.

Y’know, like how Kevin Keller proved so popular as to spin out from his initial appearance in VERONICA? I’d be oddly pleased if Archie Comics launched an ongoing Kiss comic. I wouldn’t buy it (this was pretty AWFUL, and lacking in story logic, even for an Archie comic), but it would still make me laugh.

BOMB QUEEN VII #1: Alternate future story where like a League of Shadowhawks protect the world? And then a gender-bending projection of Bomb Queen’s personality takes over some dude? I personally would expect that the usual audience for the pro-camel toe comic is going to seriously dislike this comic. I didn’t like it either, but it wasn’t for the dramatic drop in the cleavage-on-display ratio — it’s because anything this series had to say was probably said back before the third series concluded. Dramatically EH.

FABLES #111: I haven’t read an issue of FABLES in some time (I got really dramatically burned out during that Mary Sue-d War plotline, and this isn’t the start of a storyline, so I was fairly lost. But Buckingham can sure draw, can’t he? Willingham and Buckingham have to be pretty close to matching Stan & Jack’s run on FF, don’t they? Despite not being sure what exactly was going on, I still liked this passably: it seemed OK to me, and I was especially pleased to see that it even had a letter’s page. Why can’t the mainline DC books pull that trick properly?

FUTURAMA COMICS #58: Nice dense issue, with lots of stuff happening. I laughed! low GOOD.

GREEN LANTERN THE ANIMATED SERIES #0: I was fully prepared to hate the cartoon, with it’s low-rent CGI animation (I dislike cartoons that inherently look like toy commercials), but Ben and I were both generally amused by the pilot. But it’s got a weird-ass setup — instead of being Hal-specific and doing his rogue gallery on Earth; or being Corps-specific and using all of THAT mythology, instead they decided to essentially do GREEN LANTERN: VOYAGER, sending Hal and Kilowog as the only two lanterns out on the far fringe of the universe away from any support, in a talking ship, while they fight Species 8742 (Or whatever it was called), er, I mean the Red Lantern Corps. Strange premise. This comic is even weirder as it takes that premise, but renders it with a non-CGI look, effectively gutting its value as a tie-in. It was serviceable, but hardly exciting. EH.

LEGION SECRET ORIGIN #2: I don’t need to read most of this. It isn’t bad, really, but I just don’t see the wisdom of having three distinct Legion-based series running at once. The property simply isn’t that strong. A low OK

PILOT SEASON THEORY OF EVERYTHING #1: I’m starting to get sick of these, as a reader, because if I like it, there won’t be any more; and if I hate it, I just wasted my time. Why do all of the work in building a premise and a world, that there won’t be any follow up upon? This one is more in the latter camp, anyway. EH.

SPACEMAN #2: Super terrific work, all around — Risso draws like a dream. VERY GOOD.

SUPER DINOSAUR #6: Ben loves this book, and I like it solidly, and I have nothing else meaningful to say! Strongly OK.

TINY TITANS #46: I know it’s a kid’s book, but I boggle when I see that this comics is effectively an inside joke based on this comic:


If you had a newborn the year this was released, that child would be twenty-eight today. Wow, long way to go for a joke! This comic also features the REAL identity of the “Mysterious Purple Lady” from the New52 comics, and, y’know what? I like this explanation Best of All! This is a slight slight comic, but I kinda liked it a lot — a solid GOOD.

 

That’s it for me for the week.  What did YOU think?

  1. With Tiny Titans (of which I have only read maybe 1 issue, but constantly see excerpts online) I always imagine comics-reading parents buying it for their small children and then being bummed out because they don’t get the jokes. But maybe little kids just like the cuteness and don’t worry about the stuff they miss? Any parents who have successfully provided this to their kids are welcome to set me straight.

  2. I originally wasn’t going to get Tiny Titans because I was afraid I wouldn’t get the jokes. But my kids love it, and I have been drawn in to it’s mulligatawny stew of pre, post, and nu continuities, all swimming in a sea of child-like logic.

    Art and Baltazar are the inheiritors of Giffen and DeMattias, in that sweet spot of “Ambush Bug and the Substitute Legion of Super-Heroes”, when their love of comics was still greater than their cynicism for the comics industry. In otherwords, they are having FUN, so much so that even a child “gets” it.

  3. My kid *loves* reading Tiny Titans! She’s 11 and it isn’t about whether she gets the jokes. She likes the characters! Mind you, she also likes the jokes, and why wouldn’t she? The jokes rarely ever really on having any kind of insider knowledge… the jokes come from situation and character and *anyone* can appreciate that kind of humour.

  4. I think Tiny Titans works on two levels. My niece likes it, but she doesn’t know ANY of the characters as existing outside of it. I like it as a gag comic in supehero drag (the level my niece appreciates it on), but I also dig the many in-jokes.
