Waiting In The Wings -- 11/4/2009


Do we have any Hawk-related stuff to look forward to at the LCS this week?  Let's find out!

Superman: World of New Krypton #9 -- Last issue detailed a clash between the New Kryptonians and... a race vaguely resembling Thanagarians.  I am not sure what the heck Robinson was trying to pull off with the Thanagarian dialect being spoken, but it didn't work.  They haven't been portrayed that way, well, ever.  And if it was military slang, it was laid on too thick to be really believable.  The Wingmen slang from Hawkworld was pretty well developed by Truman, and would have made more sense.  "Devils!" for instance.  About the only one I liked was the use of "Grand!" as a modifier, which struck me as similar to the use of "prime" on Transformers: Beast Wars.  Anyways, needless to say I didn't care for the Thanagarians last time out.  This issue features alien badass Jemm, Son of Saturn, but it may also include the Thanagarians as well.

Well that is disappointing. Glad I didn't spend the money on it then. One does wish the editors would do some more research before blindly excepting scripts from writers. Cover still looks good though.

Agreed. I love that cover!
