Floppy Copy – Dark Destiny

Ladies and gentlemen, The Grand Doyale has turned on the weekly Floppy Copy sign. If you haven’t already done so, please stow your overly opinionated bullshit underneath the seat in front of you or in an overhead bin. Only room for my overly opinionated bullshit round these parts, know what I mean? Please turn your laptops, tablets and desktop computing devices to full shiny mode. Also make sure your gaming computer chairs and lazyboy recliner backs are in their full and upright position.

If you are seated next to an emergency exit, catch me outside. please read your Floppy and any Previews special catalog located by your seat. If you do not wish to read said Copy of the Floppy described in the event of an emergency, please ask your local John, at Hall of Justice Comics to add something new and special to your pull just for you!
If you have any questions about our Floppy today, please don’t hesitate to ask one of our Internet attendants. (That;s Juan)  Thank you.”
That’s right TOTLB listeners… and hopefully supporters. Its the end of another week, and by that measure we must set our scales of truth, justice, and comic book judgery to maximum warp! So buckle up butter cup, and knuckle down charlie brown as we are all set and ready to take a look at DC’s Trinity, “Dark Destiny” Issues # 12-15.
This arc, had pretty much everything I like, and yet still kinda fell short by my reckoning. Not by much and overall the run was not bad, but that’s kind of the point to my frustration you know? I hate describing Comics with sentiments such as not bad, or pretty good, sorta kinda all right… you get the picture. I mean face value here these four issues should kick ass! You got your main Trinity in Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, your story based ringers Constantine, Deadman, and Zatanna all coming together to face off against a Demonically Possessed Red Hood, Artemis, and Bizarro. All of them possessed, and by such powerful evil as to completely overcome Zatanna and Deadman drawing Constantine into a magical showdown with a couple immortal badasses in Ra’s al Ghul, and Circe, only to have Batman figure everything out as our  friendly neighborhood Hellblazer plays the distraction, now I wont go to far into the story here as to avoid spoilers and such.
But Whatcha doing DC, come on now buddy, you done got your main 3 amigos dealing in something in which they are not familiar and frankly their failing, and how. Superman literally Gets possessed and we spend an entire comic building the idea that Supes always holds back he never unleashes his full power on even his most powerful foes, but that is all at an end now. We Gotta baby on board and with Clark playing host to beelzebub overhear surly we are in for some all powerful badass demon possessed Superman action; am I right??? Wrong he pretty much does nothing. And why bring in problem specific characters to get wrecked an then overshadowed by Batman… because Science! thats right and pretty much a quote straight outta  issue #14 I believe.

So much wasted potential in my opinion, 3 out of 5 Marthas here and thats being a bit generous.  I feel like Rick from Pawn Stars on this one. Offering you less than half your asking price for a beloved item or treasure while simultaneously assuring you that I think the offer is fair. the subject matter/ characters keep me invested through I will give DC that.
Honestly Dark Destiny is just a so/so story, and the creative teams inability to step off the ride that is full on Batman Erection for something more plot driven or perhaps something more inline with why Deadman, Constantine, and Zatanna are in this run of Trinity at all. But perhaps I judge to harshly, please feel free to comment right here as well as any thoughts and/or suggestions you may have for future Floppys do you Copy?

Comics Release September 1st 2017

New Comics Release for 11/01/17

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!
I am currently writing this up in-between kids coming up to the door and
passing candy out. Halloween really is one of my favorite holidays with lots of
amazing memories from when I was a kid! Anyhow, this week is kind of a light
week for new books but still lots of cool offerings so lets dive in!
From DC this week, Neal Adams returns to a
very familiar character with a new 6 issue Deadman series kicking off this
week! Issue #1 even features a super sweet glow in the dark cover! When we last left
Deadman, the true story had barely begun! Deadman’s death was unsolved, and his
fate was intertwined with that of his parents and siblings. Even the Dark Night
Detective couldn’t solve the mysteries of Boston Brand’s fantastic secrets!
Now, Batman is back, confronting Deadman about who was really behind his death.
Was Boston Brand’s assassination a test for the League of Assassins? Why does
Batman think Ra’s al Ghul was involved? And why does Deadman need the help of
Zatanna, Phantom Stranger, Dr. Fate and the Spectre to defend Nanda Parbat?

From IDW this week, keeping the spooky trend,
a gorgeous oversized tribute to the late great Bernie Wrightson is out. The
Bernie Wrightson Artifact Edition is a loving tribute to the master of the macabre
in a glorious 11×17 format will showcase
Wrightson’s ground breaking work in the DC Comics Mystery books and his
legendary artistic turn on Swamp Thing. Additionally, IDW has assembled a
number of rarely seen and completely (until now) unseen treasures.

From Image this week, two new series launch.
The first being Gravediggers Union. The supernatural
world has gone crazy! The apocalypse is coming, and only the Gravediggers Union
can stop it! How? Well, first their leader Cole has to find his estranged
daughter. But is she the one behind the apocalypse? Wild comedic horror with
steroid zombies, monster gods, swamp vampires, ghost storms, and space monkeys!

Also new this week is
No 1 With a Bullet. Her social media, strong. Her variety show segments, a hit.
Nash Huang is at the top of her game. But when the iRis Shutter contact lens
hits the market, Nash’s life is personally invaded. The latest leap forward in
“technological progress,” these contacts not only play video or
augment reality…but also record footage. Fighting to keep her life together
after a leaked sex tape goes viral, a clingy super-fan is the last thing on
Nash’s mind…but that’s exactly when the bodies pile up and the terror begins.

From Marvel this week, Cap is back! And he’s
no longer a sleeper Hydra agent! Steve Rogers is back
in action in the red-white-and-blue! Steve begins a journey across America to
restore his tarnished reputation – and the dangers he encounters along the way are
unlike any he’s faced before! From the creative team of Mark Waid and Chris
Samnee!
