I’m always on the lookout for new #1s (insert watersports fetish joke here). I like to find books that will be my new obsession. I would estimate that 40% of the new series’ I pick up result in me reading the first 6 issues and of those only 10% make it to my pull list. In May I picked up several new #1s. The Movement (review here) and The Green Team (review here) didn’t hit the mark for me although I am giving each 3 issues to reel me in. The Black Bat was decent and I am curious to see where it goes but it needs to be amazing in issue #2. And I quit The Bounce before the end of the first issue (it was so lame). April only yielded one good one (Jupiter’s Legacy) and March had Guardians of the Galaxy (which I LOVE!) I also really liked Avengers: The Enemy Within #1 but that is a weird cross-over event and I can’t find what additional books it’s continuing in. With that track record I was dubious about picking up two new #1 titles on Wednesday but I think I may have stumbled on something good.

It’s two CBQties – with a twist! Which Avengers book has SaroSpice shaken AND stirred? Which title does the Scavenger think is on the rocks? It’s boozin’ and bitchin’ COMIC BOOK QUEERS STYLE, about all these current Avengers titles: Avengers; New Avengers; Uncanny Avengers; Secret Avengers; Avengers Assemble; Dark Avengers; Avengers Arena; and Gay Sex Avengers. We made one of those up.
SARO: Hey Jason! Hope this finds you well. That thing on your lip was starting to look like an open faced Reuben sandwich.Did you get a chance to read the AWESOME “Green Team, Teen Trillionaires” this week?It’s DC’s newest “young justice” title, this time focusing on a group of 1% rich kids entering the HERO game.

(WARNING: It’s best to read these reviews AFTER you’ve seen the latest episode OR while you watch! I spoil it all! It’s not comic books, but it’s certainly queer!)
Wherein we discuss Gail Simone’s latest entry into DC’s New 52. A tale of the 99% fighting back against the 1%.
Steele: Hey Saro. Happy Wednesday! So, we both read DC’s New 52 comic, The Movement. Written by Gail Simone and arted by Freddie Williams II. It’s a story about 6 super powered young activists, calling themselves “The Movement”, in a battle against the corrupt Coral City police department. What did you think of the first issue?
Sarospice: I think I’ve had more exciting bowel movements. Once again FAIL GAIL tries to jump onto “something” like the OCCUPY movement without an actual story to be told. The story is a heavy handed Swiss cheese of corrupt cops and teen titans warning everyone to leave them alone or they’ll post snarky memes on Facebook about them. It’s been done before, and better!
Steele: I didn’t hate it as much as you did but I did find it a little (well a lot) heavy handed. Read the rest of this entry →
