Look Out World, Here Comes Spider-Man & Alpha! 0

This might sound crazy to anyone reading this but I haven't read any of current Spiderman stories (other than reading Amazing Spider-Man: Sins Past, Spectacular Spider-Man: Sins Remembered, and Spider-Man: The Real Clone Saga)....until now. When I first heard that Spider-Man was finally going to get his very own sidekick it seemed impossible for various reasons:I always thought Spidey was the opposite of being a teen sidekick....but I guess we everyone, including fictional characters, need to gr...

Head Over Heels For Spider-Man Again 0

I have always loved the 1990's Spiderman cartoon when I was a kid, and when the show was over after five seasons I was sad about it's cliffhanger (where Spidey and Madame Web finally search for Mary Jane after defeating Spider-Carnage with multiverse Spider-Men and meeting Stan Lee) as well as the never successful Spider-Man: Unlimited with only 13 episodes. Eventually I was never satisfied until around another Spiderman cartoon arrived back in 2008: The Spectacular Spiderman! With only two seas...

They Came From The Deep 0

Assuming the book begins after BRIGHTEST DAY of GEOFF JOHNS & JIM LEE'S JUSTICE LEAGUE, it's great to see Johns back in AQUAMAN. Ever since his run on Blackest Night, Aquaman has been coming interesting for me. He was a zombie until he was brought back to life (again) with a second chance in Brightest Day, where he recruits his arch-enemy (Black Manta)'s son to become the new Aqualad as they fight against both Manta and Atlantean colonialists (from Xebel), and in the alternate timeline of Fl...

The Beginning of Anew 0

(I know it's been a month since this has been published, but I've been busy with school and buying and reading some of DC's new 52 comics).When I first heard that DC was going to cancel all their books for 52 new books I was astonished when Geoff Johns and Jim Lee were going to start a book together. What better way to start off new books with an all-star writer with an all-star artist, am I right? When I think about the Justice League I mostly think about the team from the animated show (Justic...

A Pirates Life For Me 0

 As one of the segments for the summer's new hit comic book series, Flashpoint, I was shocked to see Deathstroke dressed as pirate. At first I thought it was impossible to pull off, but after reading the first issue I have to say it reads off as Pirates of the Caribbean mixed with Waterworld - an all excess pass for high sea adventures over the horizon. Apparently the story takes place before the events of Flashpoint #2, but I won't reveal much afterwords. You will see a different persona of Dea...

The Return of the King 0

  In the summer of 2010, I first heard about an Kirby event so huge it would not only rebuild the Kirbyverse of Topps comics, but also bring together EVERY obscured KIRBY character that The KING himself has created from the 80's and 90's (from short lived comics through unused drawing board designs). This event was so close of what LISA KIRBY, the daughter of JACK "KING" KIRBY, did back in 2006 with the GALACTIC BOUNTY HUNTERS....but now....EVERYONE is coming back!  I have spent over a year or t...

Big Book, Shorter Scenes 0

 Back in 2007 I found out about the anime version of William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. When I saw the English version a year ago, I was drawn to this new, fantasy filled version that captured almost everything right with the exception of changing and adding new characters. When I bought the manga version I thought I was going to experience all 24 episodes in one book...however being only just one book and one volume some lengths from the show were taken out. Like all manga there are some...

The Deleted Scenes of Comics 0

 On November 26th 2010, I was blown away by Cartoon Network's, DC Comics' new animated superhero show - YOUNG JUSTICE. Although it almost related to the original comic book series, and I did even read them back then, I enjoyed every heart-bounding moment as I watched the 'Titans' - with SUPERBOY, MISS MARTIAN, and the NEW AQUALAD first television debut. As I watched the ending of the two part pilot, something interesting caught my attention: The gap between JULY 5TH through JULY 8TH - the day wh...

Thawing the 'Past' 0

 There was only ONE thing on my mind when I got this one shot special: GEOFF JOHNS why didn't you write this? The idea of Teen Titans against The Rogues definitely sounded like an idea that Johns would have developed since his start on the book and his interest in The Flash.Assuming that this adventure takes place after the "NEW TEEN TITANS" story arc (#34-37) and before "TITANS AROUND THE WORLD" (#38-41) it's great to see the ONE YEAR LATER Titans: Robin (Tim, before he leaves the team in #67 a...

The Once and Future King 0

In my previous blog, " Long Live the KING! ", I expressed my excitement about Jack Kirby's Galactic Bounty Hunters #1. Although it was a single issue, this trade-paperback contains all 6 ISSUES of this adventurous JACK KIRBY story. After reading this story as a whole it reminded of STAR WARS + HOOK. For all you Jack Kirby fans out there, this book has everything you are looking for: science-fiction, adventure, and of course some resemblance to the King's artwork. We also see a previous JACK KIR...

Some First Issue 0

 As I countdown to this special event when two comic book companies of two nations come together for the first time as Western superheroes team-up with Eastern superheroes...I had a few concerns: 1. We do not have a cast of characters about who THE 99 are. No origins, no explanations. (But something tells me that like all the MILESTONE characters, there will be a trade paperback to explain the early exploits of THE 99 before meeting the Justice League)2. The roster of the JLA: Old team. Does thi...

Follow the Yellow-Brick Road to Wonderland and Beyond 0

 Last year when I read Astro City: The Tarnished Angel, this issue of the story had to be one of most interesting outlooks on fairy-tales. Nearly everything of this book was inspired by Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass as heroes and villains were shown in the flashback of the featured character - The MOCK TURTLE. This turtle themed villain apparently charish his boyhood experiences reading fairy tales and trying to experience them (with disasterious results), but eventually 'gre...

The Symbol of Self-Publishing 0

 I bought the reprint version of this comic book about last Monday (6/7/10), and after reading the pages carefully it's no wonder that it became a big hit for cartoon shows. What inspired me to buy it was after seeing 'Turtles Forever', where the 2003 Turtles meet the 1987 Turtles who somehow traveled to their universe and from their The Shredder goes on a rampage throughout the multiverse. Anyway, the story was very good as it showed the Turtles dark and the violence is ruthless from their anim...

Long Live the KING! 0

 When I first found out about this comic book, I was blown away to whole new level! Despite that comic book legend Jack Kirby died for nearly 20 years now his legacy (both creations and children) live on. But for this creation...100% AWESOME! The art, the story...it's all wonderful and because of it I have found my new favorite story as I hope to find issues 3 through 6 (I also bought #2) at any conventions and/or comic book retail stores in California of elsewhere. The King would be very proud ...

The end of one problem, and moving on to the next one. 0

 Seeing Cyborg, Kid Flash, and Superboy with the Teen Titans almost reminded me of Geoff John's beginning for this book (he wanted Static as a part of the team in the One Year Later story, but there was 'red tape' to get around). Some of the dialogue, however, seemed a bit cheesy. Glad to see that something from MILESTONE FOREVER #2 has reflected onto this book as Frieda was blushing after her talk with Virgil (I hope that we'll see more MILESTONE CHARACTERS in future issues). As for 'Control Fr...

So far.... 0

 Is it me or our new writer is doing an awful job for our excitement? As Holocaust has Static, Wonder Girl, Aquagirl and Bombshell captured to have their power duplicated for the black market, the rest of the team seemed a bit boring to read when searching for their missing team mates. Let alone Miss Martian having an 'Out of Order' with her abilities (damn you Wyld, seen in issues 75 and 76) A few things however seemed interesting: Cyborg getting Kid Flash and Superboy back on the team (will we...

A Twist to a Mystery 0

 As I continue to find the clues of Dusk's origin...I new mystery piece has been found. At some point in the story where Static is on patrol and meets with Dusk she reveals 2 pieces about herself: She's been a hero for 3 months and that her family has been doing this before her. Heroes come and go....but what family? The only superhero family that Milestone created is the Tower Family, where John Tower (Dakota's first superhero) established the first superhero team. Could it be possible that Dus...

'And They Lived Happily Ever After...' 0

  I am so proud that I bought this! This have now wrapped up for the Milestone characters as they make their transition to the DC Universe. The first few pages almost reminded me of the Hardware #1....until Hardware decides to hang up his costume and leave the empire he inherited from the late Edwin Alva Sr. in order to marry his girlfriend. I was surprised to see Technique after her few appearances in Hardware as she comes in as his replacement. And interesting part of Hardware's ending was tha...

It's Almost Like Spiderman 0

 I don't know about anyone here...but it almost reads off as Spiderman, except for hero being the son of X-Men foe. A wimpy geek transforming into a muscled version of himself has been done from time to time. It's hard to believe that Juggernaut was once married.....can you say, "Hello, Uncle-X." (LOL). Some parts were funny, and I thought it was great. ...

Holocaust's Same Old Trick 0

 Is it just me or is it that this entire issue was almost like Static #4? Where Holocaust tries to lure Static into his side after showing the 'good life'. Despite ANOTHER real world reference (last issue being H1N1, this one discusses the Economic Downturn), I was kinda expecting more. But with Holocaust, he wants to deceive potential muscle for his (criminal) empire in order to rule Dakota. (Despite his 'death' from Milestone Forever #1, I smell a resurrection before/after everyone from the Da...

Definitely a Knockout. 0

  Seen from the 1st issue, Kay makes her actual costumed persona as Knockout. This issue seems to give out some hints about this sexy head; when she stole the Spear of Lono she spoke of how the "old gods" were over-rated it was hinted that she was had to be a New God. She and Superboy seem to be evenly matched in strength....but all of that was to get his attention (Superboy and Knockout sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.). Sometimes I wonder what it would have been like for Superboy to have Knoc...

Hulk Get's Lucky 0

 Asking Caiera for his hand in marriage as got to be the most peaceful moment of his life. She went from Spike survivor, Red King's personal guard, rebel, to the new Queen of Sakaar. The private wedding has got to be a greatest moment and message for all Hulk fans. When she ask him to reveal of him...we get to see Bruce Banner who hasn't been seen as human since the beginning of the story. The message in that revealing moment is that not matter what you have/are, someone will still like you for ...

'After all these years....' 0

 WOW! Fellow MILESTONERS...at long last MILESTONE returns! It's hard to believe that 17 years ago these characters were made and they launched a big impact into comic books.  Anyway....I was surprised that they follow up from ICON #42, where Rocket's grandmother passed away, and issues before that she goes undercover in Holocaust's new Blood Syndicate (Tarmack, Bad Betty, Bubbasaur, Harm, Boogieman, Fade, and Flashback, but no Mistress Murder), with Hardware and Harm in on the operation as well ...

Spiderman + Cinderella = Interesting Story 0

 Finally a medieval Spiderman....I was wondering when MARVEL would touch the subject after having medieval versions of Superman, Batman, and New Titans from the very early 1990's. Its an interesting twist after Marvel 1602....with the fairy tale twist. Swords and Arrows replacing powers, armor replacing costumes (that was funny). I was surprised that the conversations this story seem very modern than 11 century English....I guess that they didn't want everyone to talk like Thor. I was surpised t...

My Reaction 0

 Finally we get to have the Titans in the mean streets of Dakota....a plan was suppose to happen in the Static Shock cartoon before they went for the Justice League. Despite a good issue I'm a bit curious on a couple of things: Does this take place before or after The Brave and the Bold Vol.2 #24 (which was published 6 or 7 months ago, and within that issue, Vigil said he had a date with Madison, Virigi's new girlfriend from SS: Rebirth of the Cool, when in THIS issue it says that she moved on...

Bravo 0

  This issue of The Brave and the Bold has got to be perfect! After that little joke in Justice League of America #27, Black Lightning and Static meet face to face. The return of Frieda and Holocaust is also great pleasure to have as well. It surprises me that Holocaust had involvement with the Luthor Administration back when Lex was president....but it wasn't before Holocaust and everyone from Milestone Media returned in the end of 2008 and early 2009....but I'm sure that Milestone Forever wil...

Science Fiction and Westerns 0

 Getting this on free comic book day was worth getting. It kinda reminded me of Firefly and Serenity, where science fiction and westerns were an interesting mix....and so is this. The heroine, Jessie Garrett, was a country girl who went from miserable city girl to almost petty crook to inspired, entrepreneurial hero. The origin is good, and her partners, Panzer and Tsumi, seem like very interesting guys. Then you have 3 extra co-features of Jessie, Panzer and Tsumi. They were all funny. This got...

Dynamo 5 is Unique 0

 This comic has got to be the greatest comic I have ever read in years. It's like Batman Beyond (the mentoring part towards the next generation) meets Fantastic Four and Teen Titans (they're all blood related yet they are all different).  It starts out with action-pack fight against VEIL, then it goes into the origin story of how Captain Dynamo died and how Dynamo 5 was formed by injecting a truth serum into Visionary. I can't believe that Captain Dynamo (the Superman figure) cheated on his wife...

Ravager (Rated PG) 0

 It's about time that they brought Rose/Ravager into the comics....though I wished that she appeared in the show. I also wished that Jericho was in it to confront her and expose the Wilson family connection. The fight scene between Robin and Ravager....that must reflect the training Rose had when she and her father guest stared in Nightwing comics (issues 112 to 117) before the One Year Later event, and before Rose joining the Titans. I'm more surprised that Rose has both eyes instead of one, li...

The Fab. 5 Reunited! 0

 Finally, they brought WONDER GIRL in the animated comics! She only made a very brief cameo in that Season 5 episode - Homecoming Part 2 and in issue 34, when Kid Flash and Mas y Menos race and they are seen by the Amazon's magic well. When the issue was entitled 'TROY', it points out to 2 things: 1) Donna Troy, Wonder Girl's real name 2) The Trojan Horse, the gift for the city of TROY; in which Beast Boy disguises himself as an alien to get Wonder Girl in and free the other female Titans  Long ...

The 30-year-old Mystery of Duela Dent Solved 0

 I would never have guessed that Duela Dent/The Joker's Daughter would really be the daughter of Earth-3's Joker, The Jokester! Duela was a 30 year-old mystery when she was trying to figure out her father was. From the list of possible fathers , the top 3 (The Joker, The Riddler, and Two-Face) where really The Jokester (birth father), Three-Face (mother), The Riddler (step-father). That's the Multiverse for you, they'll drive you crazy (my best to McKeever, for putting the best origin story).   ...

Static and Dusk: Were They Meant to be? 0

 This has got to be my all-time favorite issue of Static because it shows the full appearance of Dusk, the mysterious new vigilante hitting the streets of Dakota since issues 19 and 21. So far shes able to handle herself in a fight, and her trash talk towards crooks at the docks was absolutely hilarious. When Static comes in and joins the action its like a match made in heaven. Towards the last few panels...she kisses him (finally Static gets something in his work as a superhero). I still wonder...

Deathstroke's A-Team 0

 After battling the Titans for 20 years, Deathstroke finally puts together a team to match up. Former Titans/heroes are good, evil clones are better, and two wild cards (Sun Girl and Kid Crusader) are the best! Already in one issue, the Titans East bet the living daylights of everyone, except for Rose and Jericho.  I kinda hate/like that Deathstroke always brings up how the Titans took away his children and his out to get them, I think that it not only reminds fans but also it introduces that co...

The Return of Milestone Media 0

 Before the summer of 2008, I knew that Milestone Media would return. When I heard about the come-back in July, was surprised as hell that I was right.  Anyway, the Shadow Cabinet (with all original members from the comics) is like the Justice League run by the CIA, who are 'saving humanity from itself'. New members Hardware and Icon probably volunteered to help out when they steal the candle remains of Arthur Light/Dr. Light while they have the current Dr. Light help captive. So far it's a stan...

Teenage Super-Mom 0

 This has got to be the first of many teenage mothers in comics (like Spoiler, from the Batman comics, was also one). It reflects the both generations back in 90's and the present, where young men and women expose themselves with their sexuality and not knowing the consequences other than pregnancies, like aids. It was a strong issue to tackle in this comic because finding the truth is the hardest thing to known if a young woman is pregnant or not. Rocket has got to be a great inspiration for a...

Enter Deathstroke and Family 0

 This issue has got to be one of my personal favorites because not only int introduces Slade/Deathstroke and the HIVE, but it shows the first Ravager, Grant Wilson. If not for Grant's anger for the Titans, who nearly destroyed his apartment and loosing his girlfriend, then Deathstroke and the other Ravagers would never existed into the Titans lives and their history. Overall, its a good story, and the begging on Deathstroke's career in the comics....

Olympics in Comic Books 0

 This issue focuses on the Olympics, where a young athlete runs away after practice, later there's an conspiracy by an evil organization (that's dedicated to hate and distrust) called Diablo who want to ruin the Olympic Games. It's kinda good, but it a good sportsmanship on a character called Davey Bradley, who helped the Titans and was one of the competitors for the USA Track team.  In comics now-a-days, they barely have focused on the Olympics since 1964, and I wished they did with a 21st cent...
