Booster Club 0

This is the first of the 'New 52' I have read...THE GOODI liked this issue. Dan Jurgens has always kept me entertained with his writing. I thought the introduction of team members as part of the story was clever. I liked the exchange between Booster Gold and the UN representative, when he first arrives. I have been a fan of Aaron Lopresti's work for years, and this is no exception. Lopresti's work is complemented greatly by Hi-Fi's coloring. I really like the group of characters selected as well...

The return of...I'm not telling! 0

The undead action continues as the zombie "Squadron Supreme" continue their feeding frenzy and Hyperion's escape lands him in...Kansas!?! The Good Like last issue, the artwork is good, and again a beautiful cover.  The story is getting better, with a couple of surpises as well.  The return of a hero and the positive side of Mad Cow disease (who woulda thought?) The Bad The demise of the Harvesters, I wish the would of lasted a little longer.   The Verdict - 4/5 This series is starting to gro...

Supreme Snackers 0

    It appears that the Squadron Supreme have become zombies!?! The Good The artwork for this issue is very well done.  First off, the cover is gorgeous, and interiors work great for this story.  Also, the Squadron Supreme are in it (sort of) and a very surprising appearance by former Bucky and anti-SHRA hero Battlestar.   The Bad Zombies.  More zombies, and what do zombies do...they eat people.  Not only do they eat people, they (mostly Hyperion) make jokes!?!  Since when does Hyperion, in an...

Not The Only Wall-Crawler 0

Amazing Spider-Man #30 (or #471, depends on who's keeping track) Is the start of a long run by J. Michael Stracynski(JMS for short).  In the lead off issue for JMS, Peter goes back to his old high school to find it has become a much tougher place for the kids to learn.  And after delivering a 'bully beatdown' on some kids as Spider-Man, he finds a barefoot man wall-crawling next to him.  JMS' writing is great, he sets up a lot, new characters, a new mystery, and maybe a new job.  JMS introduces ...

Nothing Can Stop The Juggernaut! Don't believe the hype. 0

"Nothing can stop the Juggernaut!"    A phrase uttered by Cain Marko, on many an occasion.  The cover alone suggests otherwise.    I'll admit, I haven't read Amazing Spider-Man in a few months(since #600), and was afraid to jump into an issue so far removed.  I'm happy to say this wasn't a problem.  The 'Bugle Girl' page recapped recent events perfectly, allowing me to enjoy this issue, worry free.    First off, I loved the art on this issue.  The cover alone makes me want to read this issue.  I...

Norman's Win/Win Senario 0

SOME SPOILERS  Jeff Parker's transition as the Thunderbolt's writer continues to be a smooth one.  And with Parker writing, it should be no surprise that his other stradling the line of good and evil group should appear.  Here's the skinny: Norman Osborne has a mean-on for the Agents Of Atlas for a double-cross, at the same time he knows/suspects that someone in the Thunderbolts is causing trouble.  Osborne send the T-Bolts to destroy an Atlas base in hopes of pitting the two teams against each ...

SPOILERS AHEAD!  In Dark Reign The List: Amazing Spider-Man, Norman Osborn decides it's time to take care of his number one problem.  After months of trying to expose Norman Osborn for what he really is, Peter Parker gets a break. Peter's Front Line colleague Norah Winters was able to get information, when she went undercover at Avengers Tower(during "American Son" ASM #594-599).   Spider-Man breaks into Oscorp after finding a secret room on some stolen blueprints.  As, Spidey is copying informa...

Setting Up Camp - Marvel Digital Review #3 0

X-Men: The 198 follows several mutants after the events of M-Day.  And this story takes place after Decimation: House of M - The Day After.     To me the great thing about this issue (as well as the rest of the series) is that it focuses on lesser known characters.    Magma.  Erg.  Toad.  Lorelei Travis.  Mr. M not what you'd expect, but an interesting story....

Jungle Love - Marvel Digital Review #2 0

Classic X-Men back-up review #2 featuring Colossus.  The X-Men arrive in the Savage Land, after their encounter Magneto at his Antarctic base.  The heat, playing tricks on his mind, make Peter think he sees Anya.  Anya is a girl from back home, but he is really looking at three females from the Fall People tribe.  The women are attacked by a T-Rex, and Peter comes to their rescue.  One of them is killed by the T-Rex, and to repay him for saving them, the other two want to have a "ceremony"  with...

Holy crow!..uh, I mean Vulture. 0

I'll admit I haven't read an issue of Amazing Spider-Man for awhile (though I did read through the 'Barnd New Day' Yearbook) so I know some general stuff.  I really liked this issue! The art was great, well written, Spidey's humor.  And even though I did not read the previous parts to 24/7, the recap at the beginning from Peter's point-of-view set it up nicely.  The new Vulture is badass(can I say that?)  He makes Adrian Toomes look like a pussycat.  Good stuff. ...

Down To Earth 0

*SOME SPOILERS*Planet Skaar Prologue, was just that, a set-up issue for the bigger arc.  Greg Pak has mentioned that his Hulk story is a trilogy, and I expect this may be part three.  Pak brings Skaar to Earth looking for Hulk, and his mere approach causes Bruce Banner and Jennifer Walters to "Hulk-up".  Norman Osborn, pardons the Warbound and then does his best Montgomery Burns, as he finds out about how Skaar's pressence has effected Kate Waynesboro.  I was pleasently surprised with dan Panosi...

Great Start! 0

I just read Girls #1, and while I'm primarily a superhero guy, something drew me to this issue --c'mon it's got a naked lady on the cover :P The story follows small town twenty-something Ethan Daniels sexual frustrated day, that boils into a drunken rant on the women of Pennystown.  The art and color add so much to the tone of a great story, with believable interactions between the characters.  This issue leaves many questions unanswered and I look forward to issue #2....

Feels like the first time... 0

Spoilers...HO!Jarvis is back, Scarlet Witch is back(how? why? (not explained, not important) The Avengers are back! I know, the series has been around for a while, but its felt different. This issue is primarily a set up issue, a gathering of heroes and at the end the threat revealed. The group appears to be Wasp (Hank Pym), Jocasta, Hercules, Scarlet Witch, USAgent, Hulk, with Cho, Stature and Vision. The world appears to be in peril(again), and Jimminy Cricket...I mean Cho and Hercules track d...

Pleasently Suprised! 0

SPOILERS!!!As stated above, I was pleasently surprised by this issue.    Hold on to your hats, but before this issue, I had yet to read any of the previous Marvel Zombies titles.  Despite the rabid reviews by critics and fans alike, I just couldn't bring myself to pick up a copy.  So what compelled me this time around?  Machine Man and Jocasta.  I am a huge fan of obscure characters, of which this issue has plenty.  Right off the bat, we are introduced to The Initiative' Florida based group The ...
