Moon Girl is decent fun, though I'm behind on her book like many others.

"Pander?" Does the book written by a gay latina featuring a gay latina superhero not feature enough Pepe memes or white dudes saving the day for those people?

I hate how "pander" is thrown around to delegitimize books not written by straight white males. They think writers like Gabby Rivera are making some kind of calculated move for profit rather expressing herself in the way she wants. "Pander" assumes the audience is all white and male, and anything not tightly tied to their interest is "pandering" to an audience that's not real or worthwhile.

It's just not hitting with me. Plus America dumped her girlfriend because reasons which was just awful. And it made me realize I hate like 80% of all superhero banter. It didn't feel like the character being written was the same America Chavez I've been reading over the years.

Yeah! I know I'm overreacting to it but one thing I loving in any work of fiction in any medium is a couple that stays together happily no matter what. So when we immediately jump to America dumping her long time girlfriend in the first issue? BRUH.

I mean, I know long distance relationships usually don't work, but America can kick between dimensions for fuck's sake. And she's friends with so many tech geniuses they could have worked it out. it's just so ugh.

Batman #11 is amazing. Just spectacular. The parallel narrative device is under appreciated and one of the storytelling devices that absolutely shines in comic form.

Edit: Quote me on this in the future if I'm right: Fake!Clark is Superboy Prime but the escaped/broken out Oz prisoner is Mr. Mxyzptlk.

Andrea getting grazed by a bullet would be too predictable. And part of why the book had been so interesting lately is because of all the fakeouts. So this could be Kirkman trying to trick us into thinking he's doing another fakeout and then at the end of next issue after treating the supposed bullet wound Andrea transforms and gets a swift bullet to the head.

ANOTHER Remender book? Hope this doesn't hold him back on his other books. Interested in the Lemire books since he's not gonna work at Marvel anymore.

Well, Remender's got Low, Deadly Class, Black Science and Seven to Eternity right now. He said he's already written through 16 on that last book. Five could be doable, and it may not be an ongoing.

Not 100% that Lemire's announcements are new books, but that seems likely. In fact, looks like the announcements are happening tomorrow and Lemire's not ECCC til the weekend, so who knows. Could always be something about a film/TV adaptation, as he's got a couple things that have been optioned and are in development.
