If I had had to guess, I would’ve thought that Dial H would be the standout hit, with Earth 2 being somewhat okay, Worlds’ Finest being utterly mediocre, and G.I. Combat not being worth the paper it was printed on.  But that’s not the way it shook down for me.  The Earth 2 comics were convincing and well made, offering a window into another way that the Justice League could have gone, and I can’t wait to see the Justice Society come together in Earth 2 and for Power Girl and Huntress to either find their way back home or find their way on our Earth.  Dial H may still become great, but issue 1 stumbled.  And I was half right about G.I. Combat, but Gray and Palmiotti saved it with an enjoyable backup piece (that was actually half of the book (and thank the stars for that)).

And once again, Avengers movie.  Holy crap.  A well-made flick with dozens upon dozens of adrenaline-spiking simple moments.  For instance, the part when the guy ejects from a jet;  if you saw the film, you remember what happens next and you’re smiling ear to ear.  You’re thinking you should go see it again.  You’re right.
