Another DC title I read is Gail Simone's Secret Six. My gosh, I can't contain myself about this series! I love love love!!! Gail Simone! I think her writing is exquisite-- she has the talent of making sure that each of her characters constantly stays distinct, and her dialogues are believable and amusing at the same time. I can honestly say that I love each and every one of her characters-- all for different reasons.
So it seems that I'm a big "group" kind of person. Well, what can I say? My tastes in comics are like my tastes in dining. I don't like getting bored, so I especially like it when my meal consists of small portions of differing flavors. (My gosh, I love Korean restaurants!)I like the drama and tension that groups bring, and I like to root for different characters. So it's no surprise that I really enjoyed Grant Morrison's first volume of Seven Soldiers of Victory.
I'm already a Grant Morrison fan, anywho: I cried reading WE3 and I gushed over his depiction of Emma Frost in his New X-men. In this series, however, I found myself actually LIKING all of the unfamiliar characters he pooled together. I'm a big Anglo-Saxon freak so of course, I liked Justin and Vanguard and the whole Avalon story. I love pirates, so of course I liked the Manhattan Guardian story with the underground pirates! AAAANd... I like magic, so yes, I did like the Zatanna story. I also love, love, LOVE! all the art in each of the stories. Especially Frazer Irving's depiction of Klarion and his Roanoke Puritans.
No conclusion. Must get back to working.
