Hataraku Mao-sama in 5 panels.

I shall crush the pitiful humans under my heel!

One month later...

Screw world conquering, I'm employee of the month!

 Its not stalking, if you are a hero of light.

Considering that this is the lord of lust, he is kind of a dumb-ass for not realizing that she has a crush on him.

 I became a general of evil for THIS?

Cry For Justice review.

James Robinson (one of my favorite writers of all time) has possibly made the single best Justice League story I have read. In Cry For Justice, he takes a bold look at how the JLA has acted in the past, what is been going on in the DCU, and how real heroes should act in the future, and not just wait for something to happen.
He addresses what makes a hero a hero, and what separates the heroes from the villains. I loved the change of pace with the League.
And you don't have to be aware of what has recently happened in the DCU to pick-up this book, Robinson fills us in as to the heroes motives and give us enough information to where anyone could pick this up and enjoy it without being confused! Not many comics can do that.
Prometheus as the main villain is a badass. I love it when they make C- or D-list villains suddenly badass. It worked for Dr. Light in Identity Crisis, and it worked for Prometheus here.
I know that the dark tone may throw some people off, as well as the strife among the heroes. But I think it makes for a much more interesting read than just your typical "super team versus big menace" story-line. And I realize that a lot of people were upset about what happened to Roy, but I dig his new attitude that came in the Rise Of Arsenal series that came after Cry For Justice.
Not only do you get the treat of Robinson's writing in this book, but Mauro Cascioli's art witch I have always been a fan of, and I love all his depictions of the various characters.

Awesome, amazing book with a jaw-dropping ending note to boot. I dont remember enjoying a series this much since Civil War.
I,m Waezi2, and thanks for wasting time with me.
Aprils fool, this comic sucks!

Blood Lad in 5 panels.

I'm a bloodsucking monster from hell!
(just like any other otaku)

Hello, I'm Yanagi Fuyumi. I'm a cross between Casper The Friendly Ghost and Shinobu from Love Hina.

I make Hit-Girl look like a little girl.

I dont know why, but I have this weird feeling that it's inappropriate to wear my shirt in front of her...

Yanagi's (after)life in a nutshell.

Despite there being a vampire, werewolf and a close to useless girl in this manga... its awesome.

Secret Invasion: New Warriors TPB review

Hello and welcome to my blog number 100!
I want to make something special out of it, so I have decided to review a series that I have long wanted to read; New Warriors volume 4.
If you have followed my resent activity, you probably have figured out by now that I'm a New Warriors fan. And I was of course pissed when Mark Millar decided to blow them up for his craptastic event-comic Civil War. That would normally be the moment the team disappeared, as it is tradition in Marvel Comics. But no, a new NW series was published during the Initiative event after Civil War with an interesting premise: a bunch of former mutants who lost their powers on M-Day are gathered together by the apparently not so dead Night Thrasher to become the next generation of New Warriors. They fight crime, makes Initiative teams look bad, and they're not shy about what they think of Tony Stark and the Registration Act. Lot of potential here. I wanted to read it for a long time, but because of my economy, it had to wait. Now I have found a TPB "Secret Invasion: New Warriors" on sale witch collects the last 7 issues of the 20 issue long series.
And I am not impressed.
I know it hardly seems fair that I judge the series on the end of it, instead of it as a whole, but after reading this much of the series, I doubt that I would enjoy any of the other issues, and reviews of the other TPB doesn't convince me. Then again, it could be that "Secret Invasion" is to the NW what the "Black Adam And Isis" story-line is to the Justice Society of America, so I will buy it, IF I happen to find it. But only if its cheep.
Now, lets take a look at it, shall we?
The first two issues aren't really that bad, to be fair. I haven't read Secret Invasion yet, but I have read some of the tie-ins and understand the concept: Who do you trust?
Well, your old friend, who return from the dead and form a new incarnation of your team without contacting you at all wont be one of them.
Justice and Rage (old NW members) believes that Night Thrasher is a Skrull, witch results in a fight between the Warriors and Justice and Rage's new team; Counter Force. They later team up, once Thrash reveals that his true identity is:
You don't know who that is, do you?
Donyell is the half brother of the original Night Thrasher. He was once known as Bandit, a enemy of his brother, due to jealousy of Dwayne having the family and money he didn't.
And now he's the new Thrasher, because they reconciled. Of-screen. Yes, seriously.
What is there to reconcile? They first met when they were both adults, its not like they were raised together. Beside the fact that they have fought each other, they are complete strangers. It would be like... I don't know, like, if Magneto had a father-like relationship to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.

... Wait, for realsies?
Beside that little bullcrap moment, its a decent story. Sure, the art could have been better, but all in all enjoyable.
And then comes the time travel...
One of the things I love about the Warriors is the fact that even though they a few times fight villains like the Sphinx and High Evolutionary, they are still pretty street-level. So its kind of a kick in the nuts when Thrash builds... a time machine. Out of scratch.
You know who has a time machine? Doctor Doom! Because HE is so insanely smart that he can actually do that. How the hell did Thrash build a time machine? Its just ridicules!
Anyway, the Warriors travel through time, so they can stop the Stanford explosion, but they make a mistake and ends up in the future.
I hate when that happens to me.
The future has gone all 1984 with Iron Man in control of everything and no superheroes left, except for Night Thrasher fight back. But Night Thrasher is really:
... Tony Stark... What? Does that mean that... No... NO! You cant be serious! Iron Man is really...
Dwayne Taylor, the first Night Thrasher? What the fuck?!?! What the actual fucking fuck!?!?
Like a) WHY is Dwayne Iron Man and Tony Night Thrasher? I get that Dwayne kicked Tony of the throne and took his power, but why change identity?
And b) HOW is Dwayne alive? Oh wait, that's right, they give us the answer: Science. Just science! No explanation except for that! No "he is a clone" or "a cure for death was found" or anything like that, just "science."
And c) ... you know what? FUCK C! FUCK D, E AND F TOO! FUCK THE ENTIRE ALPHABET!!!
I'm sorry, I normally don't swear this much, but this... THIS!!! THIS IS A PIECE OF CRAP FROM A DANISH POLITICIAN!!!
So as you may have guessed, the Warriors fight evil-Dwayne, release all the heroes so they can fight back, and return to their own time. And then they break up the team because... I don't know, and I honestly don't care anymore.
So that was "Secret Invasion: New Warriors." Thank god its over.
I'm confused as hell, since I have read another series written by Grevioux named "Adam: Legend Of The Blue Marvel" witch I truly enjoyed and recommend to anyone. But as a NW fan and a guy who loves comics, I do not approve of this... abomination.
That's all for now. I'm Waezi2, and thanks for wasting time with me.
It sure as hell was a waist of time for me.

New Warriors retrospective issue 32-34 and annual 3.

Seriously, WHY would anyone in the Marvel Universe live in NYC anymore? Its pretty much a war-zone for supers!
On the site it has been calculated that a more popular hero, like Spider-Man, probably has a twenty super-villains in their main rogue gallery. That’s not counting the hundreds of minor villains they have fought. Counting crossover baddies, let’s say fifteen super-villains for every superhero. And by the amount of superheroes operating in USA alone, it’s probably at least a hundred or so.  That is 1500 bad guys running around at one time, minus those in prison or alternative dimensions. That's an awful lot of super-crime!
Besides the daily super-villain crime-activity and alien-invasions that somehow always just happens to take place in the big apple we also have events like Infinity War and Civil War. Not to mention today's subject; Forces Of Darkness, Forces Of Light.
The issue begins in a drug-rehabilitation clinic, where we see a young man named Manny, who is scared out of his mind. He screams that "the Dankness" is trying to take him, but no one takes him serious, thinking that he is "just a punk who doesn't want to get better". That was a mistake. 
You see, the Darkness IS “talking” to him. The poor Manny is a mutant with the ability to control and manipulate the Darkforce (an energy-source from the Darkforce Dimension that has the ability to assume the properties of both matter and energy depending on the needs of the user). In his cell, the Darkforce takes a humanlike form and asks Manny to accept him. Manny does so, and all hell breaks lose.
Darkforce spreads around in NY like a black ocean and infects everything it touches. All the people in the town starts to run amok, and only a handful of heroes are there to try to keep the situation under control, which is easier said than done. Even some of the heroes are infected too, so its not just powerless bystanders.
Meanwhile Doctor Strange allows himself to be captured by the Darkforce, in the hope that he can discover its source and a way to defeat it from within. Using the Eye of Agamotto, he peeks into the Darkforce dimension where he finds super-powered individual who are all empowered by the Darkforce, like Cloak and the New Warrior known as Silhouette. But they are prisoners, not the cause of the disaster in NY.
When Strange finds Manny in his sell at the clinic, he tries to remove the Darkforce from Manny, but discovers that Manuel’s survival depends on the Darkforce, but at the same time is screwing u is already fragile mind. The good doctor instead tries to reason with the boy, explaining that he is tearing the city apart, so Manny can pull himself together… and it has the exact opposite effect. Manny now fells some sort of power for the first time in his life, and decides to be an actual part of the havoc in NY, taking the name Darkling.
Taking on the Avengers, the Fantastic Four(more likely the Dynamic Duo, since Reed and Sue are out of town at the moment), and the New Warriors, Darkling proves that he is not a pushover, as he toy with them as they were nothing. The only one of them who is actually capable of hurting him is Firestar, but the amount of the microwaves needed to doing so would also irradiate everyone across the city.
It’s Firestar who finally takes to the skies and cuts loose on her power; the blinding light frees all of those ensnared by the Darkforce’s influence; rendering Enrique momentarily stunned.
At that moment, Dagger and Nova arrive, sending one of Dagger’s “light blades” into Henrique’s eye. He buckles over, explaining that he needs the Darkforce, because it is the only thing that has ever “cared” for him and the only thing that made him feel he mattered.
Doctor Strange then arrives and uses the Eye of Agamotto to show Henrique what people aren’t as bad as he want them to be. That even in this crisis was there compassion and hope. Manny realize that even though he has never experienced it, there IS hope and love to be found, and he feels the soft touch of hope.
But he doesn’t believe that it is for him, and that he long ago lost the means to love and be loved. Still, it doesn’t means that anyone else should share his fate, so he consumes all of the the Darkforce back into himself. He decides that he is too dangerous to live in this plane with his sort of power, and travels to the Darkforce Dimension, so he can learn how to control it and might even learn how to use it for good.

In the annual is also two sub stories. The first is about Speedball dealing with a school bully in his identity as Robbie Baldwin, and the second is about how Mikey and Mike, the two teenagers who shares the identity of the superhero Turbo, saves Fabian Nicieza (the writer of New Warriors) during a comic-con.
This is my favorite NW story-line. It’s the classic tale about heroes fighting evil, and those never gets old. The ending where Manny goes to the Darkforce Dimension is bittersweet, and its what makes the story complete. But it may not really be a NW story, but more like a crossover with the Warriors in focus.
That's all for now. I'm Waezi2, and thanks for wasting time with me.
