Hoopla! - Episode 6: Back from Spring Break

Hello and welcome to Hoopla!

Just got back from a very lovely spring break with the even lovelier Mie... we spent a few days on Emerald Isle, NC, walking along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, collecting sea-shells, and being all romantic-y...


Oh, yes... and reading comic-books!


(Well, I did... she's not much of a comic-book person... or, at least, not American comic-books)


Anyway, I've got a bazillion comic reviews that I want to get to, but it's going to have to wait a few days as I try to get caught up on school-stuff and work-stuff...


In the meantime, though, I thought I'd show off this very cool cover to Final Crisis #2...




I had my doubts about picking up this series, based on my complete dis-interest in DC's multiple Crisis of the Convoluted Continuity series, spin-offs, and cross-overs, but I'm starting to think that this might actually be cool...

Art thou dubious? If so, read on, dear doubter...


FINAL CRISIS #2
Written by Grant Morrison
Art and covers by J.G. Jones


Meet Japan's number one pop culture heroes, the Super Young Team and their languid leader, Most Excellent Superbat! Join legendary wrestler Sonny Sumo and super escape artist Mister Miracle as they team to face the offspring of the Anti-Life Equation! See Earth's superheroes mourn one of their oldest allies! Witness costumed criminals sinking to new depths of cowardice and depravity as Libra takes things too far! Uncover the doomsday secrets of the poisoned city of Blüdhaven! Learn the shocking identity of the prime suspect in the murder of a god! And read on if you dare as Batman becomes the first of Earth's champions to face the Fallen of Apokolips. All this and a spectacular return from the dead...Grant Morrison and J.G. Jones' multiverse-spanning epic continues with bombshell after bombshell in FINAL CRISIS #2 — “Ticket to Blüdhaven”!
On sale June 25 • 2 of 7 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US



Most Excellent Super Bat? Sonny Sumo?


Yeah, this just might be pretty good, after all...
