Authority: The Lost Year #11
Grant Morrison, Keith Giffen and Brandon Badeaux

Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #4
Grant Morrison and Georges Jeanty

Buzzard #2
Eric Powell

Deadpool Team-Up #891
Frank Tieri – Chris Staggs

Flash #4
Geoff Johns, Francis Manapul and Scott Kolins

Franken-Castle #19

Green Lantern #56
Geoff Johns and Doug Mahnke

Green Lantern Corps #50
Tony Bedard and Ardian Syaf

Incorruptible #8
Mark Waid and Horacio Domingues

Jason Aaron and Steve Dillon

Secret Avengers #3
Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato Jr.

Unknown Soldier #22
Joshua Dysart and Alberto Ponticelli

WWE Heroes #5
Keith Champagne and Andy Smith

Deadpool Team-Up did absolutely nothing for me this week. Not only do you have Frank Tieri overly gushing for his own creation, but Deadpool is depicted as being a Leno supporter. That’s complete bullshit. Wade’s with Coco and you know it!

Authority: The Lost Year is something only I appear to be reading and I’m going to be sad to see it go as of next issue. But if it had more readers, I’m sure there would probably be some kind of fan backlash over how in the alternate universe from this arc, the Gen 13 girls are depicted as being strung out sex slaves with no pants.

  1. Is that supposed to be HHH?

  2. Normally the Green Lantern books do nothing for me (outside of Rage Kitty appearances) but I’ll admit to grinning over Larfleeze discovering Santa Claus…

  3. Here here on the Santa Claus gag. I came *this close* to picking up the issue, but if I had known it was full of jokes, it would have been a different story!

    Rectifying later…

  4. I was under the assumption that was Gen 13’s main appeal

  5. Hell, I’ve assumed that was their backstory since they first appeared.

  6. Sure, they’re basically cheesecake characters, but their depiction in this story could easily be construed as rape. In the story, the Authority find themselves in an alternate reality where the Authority took over the world and imprisoned all the other heroes. Over the years, the Authority members couldn’t get along, so a chunk of them have been killed off for having a conscience and the remaining few barely tolerate each other and wait for the other shoe to drop. The Doctor (the original, goggled one) is considered a major threat, but there’s an agreement that they won’t go after him as long as he agrees to spend his days high 24/7 and he’s given women to keep him busy. Though not named, the women shown are obviously the Gen 13 girls, strung out on drugs and laying around his apartment wearing only their tops.

    I thought it was a kind of fucked up development.

    @MarkPoa: It most certainly is.

  7. Deadpool is DEFINITELY with Coco.

    And I rather enjoyed how Mister X got his ass consistently kicked throughout Diggle and Parker’s T-Bolts run, and had hoped that Headsman would end up killing him. Too bad.

  8. I’m surprised Green Lantern didn’t tell Larfleeze that you only get presents if you’ve been “good.” Or is that not part of the Santa Claus canon anymore?

  9. You’re not alone, I pick up TLY too, to the odd looks from fellow patrons
