1) Give me a pairing.

2) Give me an AU setting.

3) I will write you a three-sentence fic.

Jumping on the bandwagon later than the others. Bite me.

Aaaand even later!

Sure, I’ll do it. I could use some brainteasers to help me write my latest assignment.

I’m reviving an old classic since I have a story due this week.

DEMON KNIGHTS #1

WRITER: PAUL CORNELL

PENCILLER: DIOGENES NEVIS

INKER: OCAIR ALBERT

Wow, this was a fantastic book.  Opening with the “Last Days of Camelot”, we see the fall of the Kingdom of Arthur, and the fusion of Jason Blood and the vile Demon Etrigan. 

I will gush about Paul Cornell’s dialogue here, because if there’s one thin he does well, it’s clever dialogue. It truly seems like he’s already found his voice with this motley crew of characters he’s assembled, and at no point did I find myself cringing at the dialogue. Nevis’ art is really stellar here as well, seeing as how he manages to render both the human and non-human cast exceptionally well.

The story itself was engaging too, as we see the horde of the “Questing Queen” marching towards it’s unknown goal, laying waste to anything in it’s path. Unfortunately, it would seem as though the Horde is attacking the wrong little village at the wrong time, as Jason Blood and Madam Xanadu have just set up camp there. Fighting ensues, and The Head Geek in Charge is a happy camper.

DEATHSTROKE #1

SCRIPT: KYLE HIGGINS

PENCILS: JOE BENNET

One of the points brought up during the pages of Deathstroke’s first issue is that the title character is in dire need of a perception update. In the DCnU, Slade Wilson is getting on in years and has been regulated to simple bodyguard work and that’s not okay. In a lot of ways, it’s sort of a commentary of the treatment of Deathstroke as a character, he’s never really given his due.

Higgins has gone on record saying that Deathstroke was going to be brutal, and he was definitely not kidding. The second and third pages are just a giant spread of Slade just murdering the holy hell out of a squad of Russian mercenaries. Heads go flying, blood sprays every where, it’s a gory splatterfest right from the get go.

That is until we meet The Alpha Dawgz, a group of young mercenaries that are teamed up with DS for his newest mission. They’re “the new generation” of mercenaries, and Deathstroke’s primary competition. They inject that all too common sort of “Buffy” ness that is so common in comics now (Remember when BTVS’ dialogue was new and exciting? I do.) Providing a sort of foil to the all business, all serious Slade, we’re made to think that perhaps they’ll be a mainstay of the series.

Well… You’ll have to read it yourself. 

Bottom line is that Deathstroke is a fun book, with a cool main character and ridiculous action pretty much from start to finish (Fun Fact: Three books had plane sequences in them this week. I think Deathstroke’s is the coolest.)
