My fave of the new 52 so far 0

I was rather upset that the whole storyline about Selena's baby adoption was essentially wiped away because that story from the previous CATWOMAN volume brought me to tears more than once. Nonetheless, I had to accept that DC's reboot (whatever you call it properly) didn't mean someone couldn't still enjoy those good old stories for their own merit even if they were no longer the new timeline.March's artwork feels like he's trying too hard to be J.H. Williams III. March's layouts are so much cle...

Great blend of pulp & modern magic 0

I loved volume 1 of MYSTERIUS because Jeff Parker took this forgotten character and brought him into the modern timeline while still developing Mysterius as a "man of mystery."  Excerpt from my Dynamic Forces review:  The parodies and homages to popular stage magicians and illusionists brings a comforting feeling to the story. You may not feel like taking a risk on a character like Mysterious but an analog of David Blaine or David Copperfield would pique your interest. Unfortunately there’s no ...

Best of the Green Hornets 0

Matt Wagner has continued to take the classic persona of the Green Hornet and his partner Kato around the world through the late 1930s. Part of the appeal of this Year One book that makes it stand above the other Green Hornet titles (aren't there 12 by now?) is that Wagner truly captures the essence of pulp noir. He has thus far contained the crime fighting to real street level gang warfare without distractions of super powers and fantastical environments. The Green Hornet and Kato move fro...

Holy smokes! 0

I'm kicking myself for not checking out this title sooner. I have heard great reviews for a long time but I never found DD that interesting as a character. Truthfully, I never gave him a chance. I based my opinion solely on the short appearances he'd make in the various Spider-man cartoons. This book is amazing!   ...

Young story but still best of the year 0

Only at issue #2 and I can;t imagine any other superhero story topping this.   Just as a fair warning, Blackest Night: Batman #1 and Green Lantern Corps #39. ...

So NOT worth the hype 0

There is literally one panel in this entire thick issue that is worth getting excited about. Sharon Carter holding the gun that "killed" Captain America. Other than that, there are some nice revisited stories. I particularly enjoyed the one that didn't involve Steve Rogers; it's about Patriot bumping into Ricki Barnes. As two youngsters donning the red, white, and blue, they are fresh and intriguing. I wouldn't mind a team up of the two of them away from Young Avengers....

Still loving this series 0

Even though Dorothy and the Lion are driven into uncontrollable slumber by the field of poppies, readers will not find any part of issue #3 snooze-inducing. This issue shows the friends facing uncertain doom over and over again keeping interest of readers of all ages. By this point it should become evident that the characteristics the individuals believe they are lacking are actually part of them already; but that isn't something they'll notice for a while and so they continue onward to see t...

Definitely a high recommendation 0

Marvel knocks another All Ages book out of the park with Pet Avengers. Like the other reviewers have said, it's not just for kids because it's lacking in voilence, sex, and harsh language. The "kids" books can be very entertaining.   ...

Super Science 0

I did a quickie review on youtube for this preview. It's basically not my kind of thing and I think it will appeal to a specific and small audience. If you liked the show Buck Rogers, for example. If you like the original Star Trek, or any of the pulp serials and you just love space adventures, this is one you'll want to add.   ...

Beneath the veil of unnecessary adult language and potty humor, there is a truly awesome story by Warren Ellis accompanied by fantastic artwork of airships and the space port.   ...

Satisfying story and decent art 0

I read the book yesterday and I think it's a fine book except for the one typo inside the cover where they spelled Jarrett's name incorrectly; first it's shown as "Jarrett" and then as "Jerrett." Overall, I enjoyed the story and thought the artwork was quite nice with clean lines; the colors threw me off a bit but I believe those panels were going for an "emergency light" glow in a laboratory. All the violence is "non-lethal" which fans say was vital to Jarrett's character. As for his look, I l...

Slowed down recently 0

The action of the Zorro storyline has been slower for the past couple of months to make room for the budding romance between El Zorro and a beautiful Senorita Pulido. The coloring of the book isn't appealing yet I find the bright Spanish colors attractive after reading so much Batman; it's just a bad digital coloring job on this title which for some reason doesn't seem to improve.The beautiful girl's father is about to be tricked out of all his money and lands if El Zorro doesn't put a stop to t...

Good start, very intriguing 0

I've really gotten into the genre of Westerns lately and I'm loving the supernatural ones. I actually wasn't very impressed with Dark Tower except for the artwork; here in Dead Iron, the story is stronger than the art but it's got a dark and creepy horror vibe all throughout. If you like the 30 Days of Night style with Vincent Price story, this is for you:   ...

Dini pwns Morrison 0

While this isn't a groundbreaking story by any means, it's more enjoyable than any issue of Batman that I've read for the past several months. Dini seems like a writer of legend to me already and he's not anywhere near retirement age. I would choose his work over Morrison's any day! As inferiorego stated, Hush has become a more appreciable character since RIP but even there Bats was up against Hush and the Black Glove and the Joker still running loose. This story has more focus than RIP or The B...

What the.... 0

Yep, that was my reaction panel after panel, page after page, "What the....!"Nice way to say that you made a huge mistake with your universe is to just have a time continuum alteration of the entire universe. Of course just about everyone is either brought back to life or "returned to their prior selves" in this tail end of After The Fall; everyone except my fave Wesley (Grrr Argh, indeed). This "reboot/retcon/whoops" is how Aftermath will launch. Does that mean you shouldn't read it? No. As a f...

More mind-blowing questions 0

Since I have yet to read anything written by Grant Morrison that is what is seems, I simply am stuck in that pathetic "Denial" stage of the five stages of bereavement. I refuse to acknowledge that Batman and Bruce Wayne are dead. This is the ending of the Batman RIP storyline (naturally DC pissed off a lot of people by having the ending in a crossover book, not Batman) so I am supposed to accept it at face value. It ends tragically with Superman holding the rather "melted" looking corpse of Batm...

Not the strongest issue 0

There are some major GLC events in this one issue but the writing isn't quite where I expected it to be considering the juggernaut it's been in 2008. There is death of a GL and then the mass resignation of seemingly thousands of others; plus a revelation between GL Rayner and GL Natu as they experience the power of the Star Sapphire for the first time. I'm also very confused as to why this arc has been titled, "Sins of the Star Sapphire." It makes no sense in regards to this story....

Continuing down the Yellow Brick Road 0

Skottie Young's art is really the driving force behind Marvel's Wizard of Oz. I'm enjoying the story for the first time! I never wanted to read it before because I hated the movie so much. However, I've tried very hard to get over my Oz fear. I've watched "Tin Man" which was beautiful to look at it but barely mediocre in all other aspects; I read Image Comics version of the legendary tale and there were so many grammatical errors that I couldn't enjoy it. Marvel did the right thing and got a tal...
