This (or rather, last weeks since I was sick and offline) week's Geek Speak we have: Secret Invasion #3, Trinity #1 and Invincible TP vol 9. and something worth mentioning that's not a comic but worth a mention just cos of the awesomness of it.
Secret Invasion #3
Okay I can't say much here cos I don't wanna give away any spoilers but if anything, the story's intruiging enough to keep me wondering what's gonna happen next. Though there's at least one thing I didn't agree with in this issue cos I think it'd just be a huge cop out, but I'll stick around to see how it plays out. Issue 2 was cool cos Clint Barton finally started acting like the Hawkeye I know again. So lets see how the invasion goes. It's kinda like reading an episode of Battlestar Galactica, but with spandex.
Seeing the big 3 of DC hanging out and acting like friends was definitely one of the coolest moments. For a change Bruce wayne ain't being his paranoid, angry self like he's been written before. Which, truth be told, turned me away from most of the Bat-titles. Now I don't wanna piss of all the Batman fans out there cos I am one too, but at some point Batman was written like an ass for awhile and his paranoia made him even treat his most trusted friends like crap, and it didn't really gel that well with me. But it seems like DC are making an effort to bring him back from the brink, which I've noticed in the latest Justice League and now in Trinity which is great!
The story's just gotten started so can't say much for the series yet, but Bagley's a legend and his art really kicks New God ass in this! So on general priniciple you should pick it up for that. And wait till you see Mark Bagley's Flash. Check this new series out now.
Invincible TPB Vol 9
Finally finally finally it came in and I picked it up without hesitation. Such a great series with cool characters and great ongoing plot. Great action and off the wall artwork which is so clean you could eat off it. If you want a taste of it, check out
's gallery. If you haven't read Invincible ... then you're should be ashamed of yourself.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
I can't say much about this movie cos I don't wanna spoil anything but as an Indiana Jones fan, I totally loved it. Watching it brought back all those feeling a had when I watched the originals and though some people said it was a bit long, I felt like it was a rollercoaster ride of adventure that I didn't want to stop, just to see where the next clue would lead and what traps and threats would show up to slow down the veteran bullwhip wielding hero. Tons of fun in a kickass fedora. Before I wanted to be a superhero, I wanted to be Indiana Jones, part of me still does.
