Identity Crisis #6 (of 7): Well, we find out who the killer is in this issue. Somehow the way it goes down is startlingly anticlimatic, so I am really hoping for issue 7 to slam things home. I have read Brad Meltzer's novels and think he is an excellent writer, so I am keeping the faith that he is going to pull out all the stops for us readers. Also, he is a longtime JLA fan, so I am taking into consideration that he won't beat the crap out of continuity. As to why the person who is taking lives did this, God only knows.
JSA #67: An Identity Crisis tie in that finds Mr. Terrific and Doctor Midnite doing Sue Dibny's autopsy while the rest of the team reflects on their personal lives. I especially enjoyed the Power Girl-Superman interlude. I have to give Geoff Johns a great deal of credit for rejuvenating the Justice Society while holding them true to their roots. This is a must read book month after month for me.
Avengers Finale: This issue took the sting out of Avengers #503 for me. I was pissed last week after reading it, and this book gave me a sense of closure. Though I am not thrilled with the deaths of Hawkeye and Antman, and am iritated by Scarlet Witch's transformation, I am willing to try and trust Brian Michael Bendis to make things interesting. I wouldn't be as open to the idea of rebooting the team if Bendis wasn't on board.
Nightwing #99: Dick Grayson learns the end results of War Games and is less then thrilled to say the least. The high emotional tone of the issue keeps it from becoming just another recap. I am really looking forward to issue 100 to see resolution of the Tarantula/Nightwing relationship. I am also crossing my fingers that Dick doesn't bite it somehow in Identity Crisis or his 100th issue so I can continue to follow his adventures for years to come.
Those are the comics I have read twice. I hope to reread several more tonight so I can come back with more reviews. Have a great night!
