A Style for Everyone? 0

This comic was a one of a kind style that I don't know many comic book readers enjoy as I must say I myself would rarely enjoy it. However, for my first encounter with Moon Knight I must say it was perfect, I absolutely loved the style and it got me hooked to the series.Though, to do this for every issue could get boring because even though it tells a very detailed story, it is a story that must be guessed at rather than known. For this issue I must say that effect was a good thing but I do hope...

Exciting? 0

I don't know if others find this issue exciting or not but to me it was just a disappointment. First off the art was originally difficult for me to adjust to...though in time I came to like it. However, the actual content of the book is something I can't find myself able to get used to.First off, in my opinion the issue is very much dialog to start off with and by the time some action starts it is quite lame, featuring Archangel, Husk and a president who turns out to be a superhero versus Viper ...

Character Development 0

Okay, this issue was awesome and finally began an action-packed story, now that we were introduced to the characters this issue finally showed who they are and I was not disappointed in the least.First on my list of improved characters and/or stories is Karl, in this issue we see that he truly does regret what he did to his friend who trusted him. We also see him not only pay for what he did but being given a second chance. All in all it is just a good story about deciding what truly matters to ...

First of Many? 0

So how was the first issue of the comic book series with the most issue in existence you may ask? Well, first off its black and white and secondly its an anthology and futuristic.The first story, Invasion, makes it obvious this is a British comic as it tells the story of Britain being taken over by the Volgs. However, the mass slaughter is just the beginning, the real action begins when an ordinary man, Bill Savage wages his own war against the Volgs to fight for Britain (which had already surr...

This issue was nearly perfect! It almost fits in with the original storyline, a tale of fantasy and magic. Once again a war of mystics will begin and I am really excited to see it play out. And to make the issue even better, it combined its teasing along with a real story.This Azure character at first seemed to be nothing more than some lonely loser to me, but he's starting to already improve in my eyes. In fact, I have nothing but idolization for the elf when I learn that he won Raven Hex over ...

The Cards 0

After what feels like forever, I have returned to Vertigo...still haven't started Preacher, Fables or Y: The Last Man but intend to yet.OMFG! This comic was totally awesome, though it seems obvious that it is for mature audiences and that the book has no humor whatsoever it is still a good read in my opinion.To me, this issue shows the world for what it truly can be, a place of evil and I feel that this comic is more realistic than most, even if its focal characters are supernatural beings.I am ...

This Story is Awesome! 0

Okay, I seriously can't believe I hadn't read this series before and I pity anyone who hasn't. This series is just completely awesome, though it has relatively little hardcore action and fighting it is the story itself that is so appealing.This story brings to a conclusion Emma's interaction with Matilda (her enemy) and Ian (her teacher/lover). In this issue, Emma expresses her interest to become a teacher but Winston is appalled...however, Ian tells her she could even be a Headmistress.So it is...

And So it Begins... 0

The 13 Chapter long story arc, Messiah Complex begins with this issue and I must say, it does a good job of keeping me excited for the next issue.The hope that their may be a resurrection of mutants, is actually a disappointment to me rather than an excitement though. If anyone finds the child, I hope it won't be the X-Men. I don't want there to be more mutants, there's too many already.Personally I hope either the Purifiers kill the baby or at the very least the Marauders take it and raise it a...

A Newfound Respect for Orion 0

In this issue, I find myself with changing views of all three main characters: Mr. Miracle, Orion and yes even Superman.For Superman, my change in views over him is very minimal yet still, for some reason this comic made me lose some respect for the guy. Despite being all powerful, he was helpless to anything, so it makes me ask, what is he good for?As for Mr. Miracle, it is simply a revelation of what could happen if Scott gave in to the Anti-Life Equation, the power he would wield, those he co...

Sinister Origins 0

First off, this isn't actually an origin story of Mr. Sinister but it does explain some of his past. It also explains some of his relationships and first encounters with other heroes and villains from the past including Namor, Captain America and Scalphunter.I personally love Sinister and so any issue focusing on him will be a favorite in my book, but honestly, in my opinion this issue was awesome.Some of my favorite scenes in the comic included when the unexpected happened: such as Captain Amer...

Emma the Mutant 0

I have become hooked on this series, I have to say that to my surprise this is quickly becoming a favorite comic book series of mine as I do quite enjoy the Frost family behind the scenes, especially Emma.I quite enjoy knowing what life as a young woman was for Emma and what her manifestation was like. The fact that she lied to everyone, even those she loved just proves to me how much humanity is expected to hate those that are different because of past reputation.At the same time, I enjoyed Emm...

Clacker 0

The second installment of the Legend of Drizzt brings back a character some may have forgotten, Belwar Dissengulp. In Homeland, the Drow had slain Belwar's mining group and at Drizzt's behest simply cut off the Belwar's hands...leaving him to spread news of the massacre to his people.It soon becomes obvious that Belwar is content, if not happier, after the accident as his hands have been replaced my magical picks that simply make living his passion easier though Drizzt still feels that he is to ...

Unexpected 0

Okay, after reading pixelized review I decided to read the comic because I wanted to try and something new and to my surprise not only was this comic not what I expected at all I actually liked it.Emma's past was nothing like how I imagined, except for her being rich and if it didn't state it in the comic I never would have even guessed the girl was Emma based on her appearance.I had two favorite parts of the comic, the first being the student-teacher relationship. I never thought Emma would be ...

Yes, the golden days of the Tarot comic, a time when the comics actually possessed an epic story and at the same time some beautiful women. I highly enjoyed the rivalry between sisters expressed in this comic as unfortunately I already know it does not last.And the great levels of power seen through the use of magic shall also be forgotten, so I say that this comic should be treasured in the series, it is one of the few really good stories and from which the capabilities of Tarot should be taken...

Aftermath of the Decimation 0

I enjoyed the first issue of The 198 as it gave you a look into the mutant world and its recovery after the Decimation. However, you are not looking into the world of renown mutants such as the X-Men. No, we are seeing things through the eyes of individuals like Magma, Mister M, Lorelei Travis and Toad.All their stories can be thought of as what truly defines them in this changing world as they may have to change who they are or what they believe to survive.Magma's heartbreak was really saddenin...

Go Wonder Woman! 0

My first Wonder Woman comic, and I assure you, I was not disappointed. Though I must admit I can't compare the new Wonder Woman up to Diana but I doubt I would like Diana as much as I do Diana.Normally I'm attracted to the coldblooded killers but this time I was rooting for the good girl, though Cheetah was an awesome addition to the issue.I enjoyed the entire battle between Garganta, Wonder Woman and Cheetah. I thought it was exactly the action I was hoping for in the comic but to find out what...

MATURE READERS SUGGESTED 0

In this issue, the origins of the main characters are given to the reader and in my opinion the origin stories themselves were very interesting let alone the story they were within.The main story revolves around Skeleton Man getting to know Tarot, as their relationship begins, a relationship that will become something a lot more intimate in time.Tarot tells of her family history, explaining the motives of her sister and often saying that witches are not like they are often portrayed...something ...

The Story of Etrigan 0

As of yet, I have not actually read the original Demon series' but I must say that I am enjoying John Byrne's take on Etrigan. I have always enjoyed the supernatural stories and though this one's art was a little disappointing to me, the story was perfect.I liked how throughout most of the comic, the reader and the characters all don't know what's going on with Jason and best of all, it never really is fully explained, leaving the answer to be thought out by the reader.Yet to me the greatest sce...

Nova Mans Up 0

First of all, it must be mentioned that I'm rarely into cosmic comics so when I give this three stars that usually means its the best of all cosmic comics in my opinion (though there are exceptions).I can't say I know too much about all the character's histories but I took a disliking to Nova right from the beginning. The way he was too much of a coward to use the power he possessed even when millions of lives were at stake sickened me.Thankfully, however with the help of Quasar's version of the...

Life on the Run 0

The first issue of Volume II in the Legend of Drizzt and I assure you, I was not disappointed. Now I will begin to list the main events in the story and why I enjoyed them.First off, it is here that we first meet The Hunter, Drizzt's alter-ego that lives for one sole purpose to kill. I enjoyed this A LOT because Drizzt is usually seen as the most gentle of the Drow yet when he becomes the Hunter he is more ruthless than the rest of his race.Then there is the new character of the issue, Jarlaxle,...

This issue to mean was not much of the humor and stories I have become to expect from Tarot. Rather it is simply a dialog between Tarot and Boo who reveal their past together, and what little action exists is dreadfully boring in my opinion.First off, the story introduces the lovers Licorice Dust (a vampire) and Boo (a werecat) who it turns out both had a history with Tarot. It seems that Boo and Tarot were once lovers but Licorice had tried to kill Tarot so their relationship ends.Now, as an i...

MATURE READERS SUGGESTED 0

After reading this comic, I ask myself, is Tarot really a series meant for crossovers cause this is probably the worst one I could ever imagine. To me the story focused on the other characters (who are completely lame, though on the plus side there all hot).Tarot barely makes an appearance and Skeleton Man makes a minor one as well but rather than making them look good, they look like idiots compared to the "new guys in town". Some people may find this entertaining or such but I do not.After rea...

My First Vertigo Comic 0

First off I will mention that I never really heed warning labels but it becomes soon obvious in the case of Vertigo that the publisher is directed at mature/adult audiences.I really enjoyed the comic, one reason being because of my studies of Heaven and Hell and their creatures. This allows me to recognize familiar beings and themes within the story (such as Lucifer himself).I also enjoyed the comic because its feel is far different from the majority of mainstream comics. Not only the themes but...

As the first issue of the series, the warning is at its weakest right now as this issue is still basically kid-friendly (at least compared to the gore and nudity in later issues).I enjoyed the art, and the characters in this issue and though the fast and seemingly meaningless introductions caught me offguard at first I have since learnt that few characters are even officially named in the series.However, this issue is a great story of fantastical events and revolves around the mysterious world o...

The New Lady Demon 0

This story features the return of the great Lady Demon, formerly a subconscious entity released from Lady Death by Lucifer.Now she has taken a mortal as a host and this mortal is none other than a very troubled mobster/FBI agent who is ashamed of her past.This provides for a very interesting story when two evils battle each other for control. However, at the end of the issue it seems the greater evil (Lady Demon) triumphs and takes control of her host body in her lust for battle.She then pits he...

The Sacrifice of Magnus 0

To me, the second issue of the Exiles only further expands upon the greatness of the series. It tells of the failures of a team of heroes rather than the successes.It also shows development for some members of the Exiles: Blink seems to have less control of the team likely because of less confidence in herself. Mimic is a lot angrier and blames himself for the release of Xavier on Phoenix, his pinnacle moment is when he kills the man who he thought was his father.However, the greatest member of ...

The Flash and The Griffin 0

In this issue, two super beings shall emerge in their early stages. In issue one they were the best of friends but in issue two their bitter rivalry shall begin and they don't even know it.In this issue, Bart Allen decides to accept his destiny after the accident in which he was unable to save Griffin because the Speed Force got out of control. The memories still haunt him and so he goes to S.T.A.R. Labs for help where he takes the suit of his grandfather. This excited me as Bart Allen is in my ...

The Journey of the 198 0

This issue was a personal favorite of mine, not only because it quickened the pace of the series but because it features the unimaginable power and protective attitude of Mr. M.The story involves many smaller stories within such as the blooming romance between Lorelei Travis and Mr. M or even the story of the refugee 198 who were betrayed by the O.N.E. who were supposed to be protecting the mutants.I was cheering for The 198 over the X-Men and enjoyed how the refugee mutants could just walk away...

No Tarot? 0

In my opinion, the biggest flaw of this poor addition to the Tarot series was that it the closest thing to a main character that appeared in the comic was Skeleton Man and it had nothing to do with Tarot or Raven Hex at all.Secondly, I never really did like his ex-girlfriend Brandi as she was too depressed and jealous for my taste.Yet in this issue we see an angrier side to her, a side reminiscing about her past...a very droll past if you ask me.And so in the midst of this storytelling Skeleton ...

The Best of Drizzt? 0

To me, this volume in the Legend of Drizzt series is possibly the best chapter of them all. However, that is because it focused on the type of story themes that I enjoy.It told a tale of fantasy, a man fighting his inner beast while on the run...running from the one who he feels loves him, his own father.I enjoyed the tales of him and his short-lived companions Belwar and Clacker.Perhaps my favorite part of the story (minus Zaknafein vs. Drizzt) was when the group was captured by the Illithids, ...

Black Adam 0

I really enjoyed this edition to the 52 series, as in this one the story focused around one of my favorite anti-heroes, Black Adam, and shows how he hopes to reshape the world.The developments involving Steel and Lex Luthor were not so interesting, but simply make you wonder what there future meetings will involve.However, back to Black Adam, throughout the issue the reader wonders what side he really fights for, whether at the point where he threatens Power Girl's life as she tries to bring Ter...

Surprisingly Interesting...for a Cosmic Comic 0

I never really thought I could -in any way, shape or form- enjoy a comic about deep space and the characters that dwell within it. However, this comic happened to focus on some of my favorites of that cast of cosmic characters.I personally enjoy all of the Heralds of Galactus and their stories even if I'm not a big fan of Galactus. So the idea that they'd band together is some big points for the comic in my opinion.Also, I am a big fan of Thanos and it is interesting to always wonder what his fu...

Overview of the Volume as a Whole 0

Combined the three issues of Homeland: The Legend of Drizzt Part 1 are even better than one they are separate. The TPB I would highly recommend, in fact the entire series could even be better if bought in TPB form rather than singular comics.This way, all the great plot stories are combined as one and there are no cliffhangers. Not only does Drizzt train under Zaknafein (1), or learn he is his father (2) he also bonds with him as a son and causes his sacrifice (3).When you read it in combined fo...

The Conclusion of Homeland 0

This book was an awesome addition to the Legend of Drizzt series and I must say it gives you a much deeper look into some of the characters, mainly Drizzt and his father Zaknafein.First off this tale is mainly focused on the "family" of House Do'Urden and how Drizzt and Zaknafein appear to be the only "pure-hearted" members of the family, in fact of the race.Though the two begin with distrust by the end they once again have the perfect relationship. Perfect enough that Zaknafein gives up his lif...

This comic was a Boo/Tarot vs. Pooka showdown and despite the fact that Boo's sexual drive is usually entertaining this issue was a huge disappointment to me.First off the storyline, Pooka being a goblin cat is going crazy and is a danger to everyone, was in my opinion at least pointless, stupid and often ignored in the comic.The real main purpose of this issue was just to focus upon Boo and Tarot's relationship. In other words, it was Boo lusting for Tarot who kept on ending up in sexual positi...

I only learned, a few days ago, in English class what the word Sojourn means and now that I know it I realize it does sum up the entire volume.This entire volume is interesting but it is ever-changing as it tells of Drizzt's first attempts at friendship on the surface world. Most of them ending in horrible failures, even deaths of the innocent.But eventually he meets a Blind Ranger who quickly befriends the Drow and from him learns much...thus becoming a Ranger himself. But alas, even this had t...

The Story of Bart Allen 0

I sincerely loved this comic book, and even though Wally West remains my favorite incarnation of The Flash. This book has boosted Bart's status in my eyes, I love his reluctance to be a hero and the fact that he is saving the world every time he doesn't use his powers...and nobody even knows it.This book also shares a little bit of Flash origins, trying to help readers understand the identities of all four Flashes and their relation to one another.The ending is my favorite part of the book, when...

I am glad to say that once again DC does not disappoint and that I am enjoying the 52 series. I enjoy the fact that this series brings the focus onto the less "important" heroes like Question, Booster Gold and Elongated Man.I am intrigued by the thoughts of Professor T O Morrow and his relationship with Will Magnus. I really want to see what becomes of these "kidnapped" mad scientists.I am also liking the mystery of Skeets and how somehow is presumambly messing up the time stream.To add to this ...

For the issue at least, I say the warning should be held in the highest regard...though some may see this as being a harmless issue without any real story it is still needed in the series.The majority of the panels depict nudity and the entire issue tells of the recovery of Tarot's Mother, Raven Hex, Skeleton Man and Tarot herself.Tarot's Mother is barely elaborated on but it is said that Raven's recovery was very painful.Skeleton Man returns from a coma by having the Fluffy Witch Coven delve in...

As usual, the warning still stands...but I consider this issue to be a lower point in the series.As previously mentioned by CaptHowdy I must bring up the misspellings and such mistakes as I too did notice them.The book itself focused on some of my least favorite characters in the series, and so its telling of their stories bored me.I do not really like Pooka and still wonder why he's even worthy of an origin story but that's besides the point. I didn't really find the Dragon Witch all that inter...
