My latest purchase revealed

My mystery comic book finally arrived today from the Amazon Marketplace. Since I have it in my possession and I don’t have to worry about people rushing out to buy it (and therefore driving up the price for me to get it), I can finally make the big reveal.

It is JLA: Secret Origins by Paul Dini and Alex Ross, the only one of their oversized books that I didn’t own.

jla_secretorigins

I haven’t read it thoroughly yet, but I like what I have seen by just thumbing through it. It appears to be a collection of two page retellings of the origins stories of the Justice League of America (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Arrow (with Black Canary, but her origin wasn’t told.),  Captain Marvel (the real one, you know “Shazam!”), Hawkman (and Hawkgirl, whose origin has always been intrinsically tied to her husband’s), Atom, Plastic Man,  Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern Hal Jordan.

Since I cut my teeth on DC Comics way back when, there  is nothing in here that I didn’t already know but it never looked like this.  There is also a retelling of the Justice League of America themselves, which is restricted to one paragraph. The real treat on the JLA spread is Adam Strange, Zatanna, Metamorpho, The Elongated Man, Phantom Stranger and Red Tornado each getting the Alex Ross treatment for a panel.

After the story, there is an interview with Dini and Ross that includes a lot of sketches and a painting of the Big Seven, which is beautiful and I wish I had a poster of it.

Now my Dini/Ross oversized collection is complete and I can start getting some of the other books that I saw on TreasuryComics.com. This could take a while and get expensive. Luckily for me, I’m not as obsessive about such things as I once was.

Comic Book Noise 148: Hate vs Disappointment

Host Derek Coward explains why being disenfranchisement and disappointment is not the same as hate. To make his point, he mentions Batman, Superman, Captain Marvel, Prime, dating a female bodybuilder, Batman: Prodigal, Az-bats, Batman: RIP, dead Steve Rogers, dead Superman, blonde Wonder Woman, black Iron Man, gray Hulk, puzzle pieces, taking the audience for granted, podcast recipes, scripted material and stilted dialog versus satisfying spontaneity, referencing the hidden past, real competition, what are you buying this week, expanding pull lists, Andrew Kreisberg and Helen Killer, a sixty percent failure rate, Invasion, Animal Man, Doom Patrol and why lean does not mean sickly.
