Bedard is Killing It

10:06 PM

Tony Bedard has thrived throughout his career as a replacement killer, stepping in no matter how big the shoes are whether it is Chris Claremont, Gail Simone, Paul Dini and Pete Tomasi.

In every situation, he has seemed to supplant his unique gift for writing the ensemble or team-books on par with the best of them-- keeping true to longtime fans of books like Exiles,

Birds of Prey, Gotham City Sirens or Green Lantern Corps-- while still throwing his well crafted sense of humor and gaining more and more notoriety amongst readers that were not before familiar with Bedard.

By now, all of that has seemed to change. 

Along with Sirens and GLC not really losing a beat since he has taken on writing duties and R.E.B.E.L.S. being the talk of shops in many ways how Secret Six was a few years ago-- Bedard has definitely arrived as a top-tier scribe. 

I jumped on R.E.B.E.L.S. during Blackest Night, well so I could get them damn lantern rings, but I was actually considering picking up the book regularly as the art and story was effing good.

I boomeranged back to read the Sons of Brainiac and boy, am I glad I did.  Since then, I have been on the hunt to fill all the holes and just need issues 1-6 to have the complete run.  Vril Dox (Brainiac-2) is a major douchebag, self-serving a**hole and outside of Starfire and Adam Strange, most of the makeup of his mercenary squad are not even E-listers in the DCU, but all of that aside-- you have one of the most engrossing reads out there.  Boom!!
