Unity #1 Smallville #19 Batman #25 Nightwing #25 Deadpool #19

This is what I just picked up and read today.

Smallville 19:

I liked this issue a lot, I haven't been to fond of this whole Wonder Woman arc. It made Superman really cool, but he really stole Wonder Woman's spotlight.

Spoilers:

Superman threatened Hades that he would throw him into space, it was kinda lame, but the only alternative to killing Faust, Hades agrees to go back to hell. Also Diana isn't wonder woman his ends up Agent Prince/ Punisher Woman.

3 out of 5 stars.

Unity 1:

It started of kinda slow with the random lady blogger. It was really cool seeing how all the Characters will fit together. Harada is hard to like or hate, he is a "good guy" in this, but In Bloodshot and HARD Corps he is the "bad guy". Eternal Warrior was a little disappointing, I expected him to have a Deathstroke level healing facter, so seeing him in a cast was strange. I loved his flashbacks, and him putting together a plan using all the battles he was served in. The Art is okay, but it kinda makes everyone look old. I don't know who old Ninjak is supposed to be, but he looks late 30s.Ninjaks tech was very cool. Also I loved the approach to Aric's forces and Russia.

Spoilers:

Ninjak had to sneak around both. Unity gets wiped out in like 4 pages. And Livewire isn't in it but maybe 1 page.

4 out of 5 stars.

Batman 25:

I liked this issue and I love origin story's so I have been liking Zero Year a lot. The "Dr. Death" story felt very "thrown in". It was cool to see Bruce and Gordon, But I really don't like that Bruce hates Gordon he seemed okay with him in the 0 issue. I'm interested with Gordon's connection to the death of Bruce's parents. I also liked seeing Batman deal with the police, it was fun to see and reminded me of the chase scene from Batman Begins. I didn't like the "sticky" tires thing though, it was a little weird. Also what's up with the Batcave why is it in the middle of nowhere? And those soldiers, I have absolutely no idea what was up with them. I has very surprised at the end when Lucius injected Bruce at the end.

Why the poop is the price so high? I don't know, but I actually really did like the feel of the cover.

5 out of 5 stars.

Nightwing 25:

I like this issue a lot, I really liked that Dick Grayson looks younger maybe 14 or 15?. The problem I do have is that Amygdala (I've never even heard of him before) seems too big for pre-Batman training Dick to beat. Also I didn't think Dick doing his best in the circus gave his friends a reason to hate him.

3 out of 5 stars

Deadpool 19:

Great issue, It was a great way to end the story. Deadpool have some serious character development in here. Deadpool possibly having a daughter is interesting. Cap saves the day just by standing in front of an entire army. My favorite part was the end when Captain America calls Deadpool his friend. Shalvey's art is super awesome. I liked how he actually drew Wolverine being short. Some artists forget that Wolverine is a little guy. I really want to see another story with these 3 teaming up again.

5 stars out of 5

I get the complaint that Superman stole the spotlight from Diana...she should have been the one to defeat Hades....but we also have to remember that it's called Smallville and not Themyscira

@danhimself: I agree with you too, im a little torn, I cant wait for Smallville Alien though.

yup it was great. I forgot to mention above, but I like the weird coloring for zero year, the purple/green/red's

Posted by danhimself

@allstarsuperman: the first issue of Alien came out Friday...it was good..I can see where they're going with it and it should be pretty cool

Edited by AllStarSuperman

@danhimself: ok, I guess im not a fan of the mini series idea, but as long as the quality keeps up ill be happy.

Posted by danhimself

@allstarsuperman: I understand why they're doing it...for sales...but in the long run it'll just make it harder for new readers to jump in....what's easier? having a straightforward series running from issue 1 to whatever or having a twenty 4 issue mini's?

Posted by AllStarSuperman

@danhimself: I agree again, they should just have a lengthy recap page at the beginning and maybe a certain phase on the cover like "new arc" or something. I for some reason like having a high issue count.

Posted by danhimself

@allstarsuperman: are the print issues also going to be renumbered or are they going to keep going?

Posted by AllStarSuperman
Posted by danhimself

@allstarsuperman: that sucks....so I'm guessing that the mini's will most likely be collected into one issue...how many of the digital issues are in a print issue?

Doubt it, Alien seems to be 4 issues long.

how many of the digital issues are in a print issue?

don't know but all the arcs so far have been 4 issues, except Argo was only 3.

Edited by danhimself

@allstarsuperman: the Smallville wiki says that there are 3 digital issues per print issue...so how do they do it if an arc is 4 digital issues? is the last broke off and put in the next print issue? that seems like a really dumb way to do it

Posted by AllStarSuperman

@danhimself: I guess I don't quite get what you mean?

I assumed the digital issues are cheaper and weekly, bu a month of weekly issues equal one month in print. with the exception of the specials like Batman and MMH, and Lois and Lana, and Tess and Lex.

@jeanralphio: oh, why don't you like Higgins? I say he is good, could do better if it wasnt for batman crossovers and editorial issues. Dead pool is 2.99. You spent a lot I'm trying to not spend more then 40 a month. But I read a lot online.........

Good reviews but I have to disagree on two of them with the rating with you.Batman #25 was a pretty weak issue for me and a big letdown while Nightwing #25 deserved more than a three star rating.But that's opinion but still you have done a pretty good job!

Posted by JeanRalphio

I've never been a fan of his writing. I rarely ever read online or digital comics,I love getting the actual books because I always find something else to read at my local shop,with the Inhumanity event coming up that $48'll turn into $60+ but since I'm the most frequent customer I get half price on back issues.

Posted by AllStarSuperman

@jeanralphio: cool I wish my store gave me discounts. By online..... I meant for free.......

@tdk_1997: thanks what did you not like about batman 25? What did you like about nightwing 25?

Edited by TDK_1997

@allstarsuperman: Well the Batman issue felt like it had nothing in common with last issue and it's ending.It picked up from a point where it seemed like Batman had no concerns about Riddler and a new villain showed up out of nowhere and started to have impact on the characters and it seemed like the Riddler was being forgotten or he was not even wanted in the issue.I know Snyder is trying to keep Riddler as a big bad here but so far apart from blacking out the whole city - the Riddler hasn't done a single other meaningful thing. Mostly 2,5/5 for this issue for me.

While Nightwing was a big surprise this week.I was getting tired of Higgins' take on Dick and the supporting characters but this was a nice change to the situation and to the state of the characters.The issue seemed like it was having a lot of cintinuity problems with Dick being like 14-15 and still being at Haly's circus and his parents being alive but apart from that I had a lot of fun reading the issue.It was like 4/5 for me.

Butlers sister says she doesn't even know him, but she know she hates him, and that she was already in hospice before he got her. she stays down in the lab even after they tell her its gonna blow. She lets herself die, Deadpool lets her, and he tells Agent Presten it was her free will. Deadpool blows up the place. Cap has just been standing there. They walk right through the army. Then 96 hours later in Tokyo, Cap says Deadpool is his friend and a great soldier, Wolverine says he'd like to get a beer with deadpool stateside. Deadpool tells agent Presten to find his daughter.
