Bottom of the Pile: Apr. 8, 2015
Convergence - Justice League
Convergence - Flashfew weeks ago--I'm going to be heart-broken when this is all over.
Convergence - The Atom
This doesn't have anything to do with anything, other than its nice to see the original Guardians written properly again and not according to the movie. Also: I'll concede that Gamora's Annihilation-era outfit was more than a bit male-gaze-y...but I still want her cape back. She just looked more like a regal bad-ass in it.
Howard the Duck
Miles Morales - The Ultimate Spider-Man
Transformers: More than Meets the Eye
They were some of Megatron's most loyal soldiers, and they've been out finding and punishing Decepticon traitors for so long they weren't even aware the war was over. Only, for them that's not how it works. They're the type that are so devoted that even when the guy they worship recants his ideas for the sake of peace, it isn't good enough for them. When you devote yourself so single-mindedly to a cause, most often the only options are you achieve that cause, or you simply die in the attempt. And so, bam. Just like that, we have a new Decepticon Army, and the war's started all over again.
....Or has it? (No idea, but I suppose we'll find out over the next few months!)
Author's Note: Bottom of the Pile is a weekly column (or at least, my attempt at said) in which I cover the comics that found their way to the bottom of my reading stack, thus being the "best". Since bog standard reviews can be found literally anywhere, coverage here can range from mini-reviews to funny comments to commentary on a creator's run or comics as a whole, depending on a wide range of factors including the comic itself, the amount of time I have, and my general mood.
