loved the new issue -- high hopes for the future
Posted by Solar Samurai on August 9, 2008, 1:04 pm, in reply to "A Good Jaime Day"
I thought Sturges' first Blue Beetle issue was great. I'm actually a little surprised that there's some negative reaction at all to it considering the bland past couple of fill ins by Pfeifer. I'm really looking forward to the coming issues, with full awareness that it won't matter how good they are, because what fans Blue Beetle had acquired under John Rogers are going to start dropping it, and it'll soon be cancelled, and I'll be sad.
: Was anyone else more effected by Rogers' name
: mistakenly being on the cover of Blue Beetle
: #29 than they should have been? I saw it
: and was very happy, thinking perhaps Rogers
: had had time to squeeze one more issue out
: before his mythical other projects. That
: put Sturgess further behind even further.
: It was no longer me having months to get
: used to reading a new regular writer's
: stuff. Now I had to read his debut just
: moments after getting my hopes up about
: seeing Rogers' work.
: Sturgess tried too hard is all I have to
: say. I think he has Jaime's basic
: personality down and a good idea how to
: continue what Rogers built but in his own
: way. It was just too much, you know? Like
: when you're having a fight with your best
: friend and the next best friend in line is
: trying to take his place while you two work
: it out.
: Art? usual Blue Beetley goodness.
: Teen Titans? McKeever really isn't a very
: good writer, is her? Jaime is officially a
: Titan now but that was the only good point
: in the whole book, besides the fill in art.
: Barrows is quite good but his type of
: stylization isn't quite my cup of tea. It's
: the story that was complete and utter crap.
: The dialog didn't seem to fit characters,
: the forced bad feelings between Beetle and
: Devil, and the lack of anything but just
: rankled. And did anyone else think the boys
: had kissed and made up before it was stated
: so in the last page or two? I assume
: McKeever thinks he made it clear in the
: story, he was wrong and should be replaced
: before this book gets any more unreadable
: and unrecognizable.
