Wrapping up the rest of the #1s! Here's my favorite clip of the week:
From Aquaman #1
Reviews of the internet were much more favorable to this weeks books than I was. A large number I didn't like, and even more are just barely hanging on. But let's get to the good stuff: the book of the week is...
A few weeks back, I posted some thoughts on the state of cable television, wherein I stated that the only way a la carte could ever happen would be through an act of Congress. Because any single cable company who attempted this would be fighting a losing battle against the channel providers.
Then I read this tidbit comes in:
Cable operators want to go "a la carte" U.S. cable operators are privately working on a plan to force programmers to unbundle their networks and allow customers to subscribe to channels on an individual basis.
Wow. The cable companies are working together to force this on the channel providers. I did not see this coming. And I am very impressed.
There was no real standout this week, but out of the new batch, only one book outright sucked, so I call that a win. Since normally I start this off with a pic of the issue of the week, instead I'll give my single favorite panel:
From Red Hood and the Outlaws #1
The sensitive side of me should be disgusted about what they've done to Starfire, but the lecherous side of me laughed my ass off.
