To save Life 0

This is a comic book based on a video game, that I'd never played and only heard about because of Joe Madureira's part in it. Basically it goes like that: there is a battle raging on between Demons and Angels, amidst this conflict there're a group called the Horsemen (War, Fury, Strife and Death). Death is one of the Horsemen and he is summoned by an Angel for a meeting, where he says to Death about a major threat that is lurking in Earth, a great beast, that could cause the total destruction of...

A displaced Man 0

It's positive to assume that this is the first issue Joey Casey is 100% free fo write Cable's story, free to develop his vision of the character, of a displaced man, without a home and time of his own, searching for his humanity,for a purpose,a new look of what drives him,a man looking for some peace of mind,comfort and even real connections. The rupture from Cable's past characteristics imput on him over the years is a visible goal of the writer, since he tries to disconnect the ties other writ...

Eating Flowers 0

Higher Earth is one of the best examples of a good story, a good concept that was executed in a poor way, for many reasons, from unnecessary subplots to mistakes in continuity, all these problems were agravated by Boom!'s decision to terminate this series earlier than expected. This series is based on a very intelligent and interesting concept: an empire (Higher Earth) of a multitude of Earths, in which there's a strict division and categories of Earths: ones for providing resources, others for ...

Goblin City 0

Searching for the cult responsible for changing the goblins' nature, our group of adventures face themselves with the dangers of the swamp, a forest called Mosswood, a place where all kinds of creatures exist, good and bad ones - what will they learn by crossing their paths? In issue two I'd make a big complaint about the lack of characters' development and the quality of the dialogues, it seems that Jim Zub really got those flaws corrected, but, unfortunately, this issue felt like he was more c...

Pauper's Graves with rain 0

Now that our brave group has gathered more information on the responsible for making the goblins act the way they were acting, it's time to track and bring them down. My complaints about last issue (the lack of development of the characters and at some point the bad dialogues) really vanished in this issue that, though not having as many battle and action scenes as the previous one, is full of interesting moments, especially the ones in which Jim Zub took the time to develop the characters and u...

Attack in Seven Tooth 0

Continuing their quest from last issue, our group now threads in another essencial element of a RPG fantasy story - after the dire battle against the frantic goblins, comes the time to be hired by the authorities of Sandpoint (the burg or city in question here) to wipe out this threat for good. This issue is splendid because of the high level of action and battle: it's been a long time since I've seen quite so many battle pages in a single issue (it were 12 pages of a 22 pages issue) and the qua...

Blood, Ale, Bounty and Battle 0

Being this a medieval RPG comic book related, even if you try to be creative and original (whats a little difficult in this genre), there're some patterns or paths that each single story of this kind must follow: the most basic and essential rule is a gathering of the heroes/characters for an adventure/quest.This is not different here: a man warrior, a female human sorceress, an elvish thief, a man wizard and a dwarf. A very colorful bunch who get together to investigate some real nasty problem ...

The truth will never let you forgive 0

A reporter. His beautiful wife. An affair. A big company. Ex-militaires (like Black Water). Detectives, two partners. A homicide. This is basically the plot about this interesting thriller, a very decent and consistent police story about a man searching for the truth and revenge. The most impressive thing is how cool the title sounds and perfectly fits for the story told: Point of Impact, after you've read it completely, really clicks and you realized that in every issue there's definitely a poi...

Mother will Kill you 0

John Prophet is a clone. Not only one clone, but a whole multitude of them. If you want, compare John Prophet with the Stormtroopers in Star Wars (The Clone Wars as seen in Episode III). John Prophet has a mission. Launched and in hibernation in a pod for centuries, even millenia, once awaken, he must complete Mother's mission: to secure Earth's Empire shall rise again. But, once in a while, all the years of programming and deleting of the notion of identity, is washed away and John Prophet may ...

You will know me by the trail of the dead 0

Occultists and criminals often walk side by side, luring poor lost souls to the dark path, driving them crazy, stealing all that was ever good, kind and sane, leaving nothing but an empty and old husk. No matter if you don't follow this strange force, it appears that, once in contact with it, it will never let you go, even if you never look back or run as far as the sun can reach. The concept of the forbidden arts, the occult and dark overlords in which some people gaze and pledge their lives to...

Bring the Wine! 0

Glory isn't a title for the weak at heart, it revolves every aspect known in comics as value foundations, twisting them, making them fun. Why is that? Glory's family has several issues: at the same time they are trying to bite each other's head, in a blink of an eye they are eating breakfast and getting updates of latest news. This is a very funny trait of this series and, though Keatinge has a tendency of clinging a little too much over this aspect, I do believe this is wheeling force driving t...

That's why I don't trust reviews 0

Saga's universe is as big as the galaxy that Vaughan spawned and, having a big character cast such as it has, it's easy not to miss some of our major characters when you can read about The Will, a bounty hunter that, paradoxilly, has a great deal of honor and feelings of compassion and justice. This is one of best things about this book, the duality of the characters, the fact that they don't have quite an established alliegence, that they can choose from a variety of action course and Vaughn kn...

Battle for science and power 0

This series shows great potential! Potential to break boundaries, to explore science fiction and politics of the time (after WWII) with absurdity and a dark sense of humor. Potential to prove Hickman is working without limitations, that his creativity, once the editorial allows him, is floating boosted by the wind, that he can play with weird characters, giving them purpose, that he can play free all his crazy ideas that infuse this story with freedom. Though this issue has focused more in actio...

Looking for a new home 0

Star Wars may be the franchise that most interested me in my life. Since I was a young boy, nine or ten years old, I remember watching "A New Hope", "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi" and still, when I rewatch these epic movies, the same feellings of rejoice and happiness come along. Strangely, in the opposite way, I was never much into Star Wars comics, read a few issues here and there, but my enthusiasm as a movie fan of the franchise never followed the comic books series (and I kn...

I'm no one's saviour 0

Praise the lord,'cus he has returned to us to clean our sins and bring retribution, it's the second coming as foretold in the holy bible. But what do you do when the lord is a clone, doing a reality TV show and starts cursing and becomes a rebel? Though the punk only started in issue 3, this sad story that explores politics, religion and mass tv was doomed for violence and rebellion. Chris is Jesus' clone (or allegedly is) and his shows tops the rates every time, often showing him learning the c...

The many faces of Death 0

Conan is in despair,drinking what he cannot change,but in the shadows of the pub, not only pain and tragedy lurks, since there's hope delivered by a strange woman and a promise to save the Tigress' crew. Wood's narrative colors Conan not only as the barbarian, the relentless fighter, whose will, drenched in his enemies' blood, is unprecedent and unchecked, no, Wood paints Conan as a zealous and worrying man, someone who is willing to fight and not give up in name of his love. But Wood also plays...

Meru (one of the main characters) is a girl living in a loop of tragedy: no money, no book (she's a writer without inspiration) and struck with a strange case of amnesia. We saw in the last arc story (issues 1 to 6) that Meru has a past connection with Agent Henry Lyme(a Mind Management agent who has telepathic abilities),what explains her problems of forgetting stuff. But now, after some suggestion hints and clues she left behind to herself, Meru is beginning to take a more active role, chasing...

Things are brewing in Westeros, when it's two biggest families, the Lannisters and the Starks, are at their throats, in what will prove to be the beginning of a bloody war. But before all that gore, a little Wolf puppy enjoys the little Lion's gift: the ability to ride a horse again. I really enjoyed how the creative team took it's time to tell Brandon's story in this issue and though there were some mild changes from the original book, I do believe the sequence in Wolfswood was done marvelous. ...

Fancy Lessons, Road Trips, a Little Sexy Moves and Revelations 0

The ghosts of tragedies are still hovering over Fabletown, once a distinct and thriving city, now reduced to an old castle, some mysterious characters and the community spirit broken. Willingham knows how to handle these feelings very well,sticking to his characteristic of multifocal characters,throwing at the reader' laps several different stories at once,all,in one way or another,connected. One of the best things about this series is this ability of the writer of playing with our atention, pla...

It is really sad to see such an amazing series end the fashion this one has, with a bad, meaningless, stupid self contained pointless issue.Rather than end the series with an important meaning, like in conclusion of the Rot World or with Frank's fellows Dark Leaguers, no, DC pushed throught our throats this terrible ending where Frank, again an operative of S.H.A.D.E. (yes, continuity is for what, I ask?), without placing the story correctly in the time line, it could be before or after the even...

The meeting: Destiny or Failure? 0

I was so bummed that Paul Cornell was sacked out of this series, but I decided to give Roberto Venditti a shot and despite this new arc story involvement with vampires, it was quite a good first issue from the new writer. Venditti managed to continue Cornell's depict of the most loved characters that no one has ever heard, beginning a new story set 30 years after the conclusion of the Battle of Avalon and though the narrative fell from the common ground of everyone getting caught, then receiving...

Trapped in world where magic is fading and science rules all, the Justice League Dark is falling apart and their only hope lies in a boy who doesn't want to play mage anymore. Picking up from the exciting last issue, this number provides us tons of action: from an angry Deadman that enjoyed his first and last breath too shortly, to all the league who don't know how to match Vikar's might. The greatest thing about this series is how Lemire is doing a terrific job on telling a captivating story ab...

When I finished reading this issue I was quite lost, at first, of what to think about all that happened, then concluded that this is a typical example of how an unbalaced issue can have great and impressive moments and,at the same time, suffer with some bad scenes that taint the story. Beginning with the things that bugged me,again I didn't enjoy how abruptly the current story gave place to the past story (Maxine's), perhaps if they had been done in separate ways, or in a different fashion, this...

One of the multiple things I enjoy about Morrison's writing is how he always manages to pick up threads long forgotten and insert them in the current story, making us look like dorks for not giving it it's due credit at the time and feel complete mesmerized about his skill of blowing our minds with his little games. If you've read this issue, you know I'm talking about the issue when Bruce Wayne returns - http://www.comicvine.com/batman-the-return-planet-gotham/37-244575/ - and how he connected ...

Toxic gas and Robins do not mix! All seats taken, this is the fight of the year: Father Vs Son, Jokerized Batman Vs Cowardly impaired poisoned Robin, and the director, Mr. Joker, sits in the front row, best seat in the whole Zoo, narrating this epic confrontation! Was the fight between Batman and Robin so epic as the announcement? I really don't believe so, mostly because Patrick Gleason's art was so off in this issue, I really don't know what happened with him: there were some pages that the "l...

The power of the Green 0

I like stories that the writer plays with the ideas of hope and tragedy, when you think everything is done for, comes a ray of lighting and you know, somehow, things'll work out. Like the Green that refuses to perish, this story gives us the legacy of Bruce Wayne,now a giant bat decaying of the Rot,but even in his last conscious act,Bruce Wayne was fighting the good fight, he was trying to discover a cure to the Rot, trying to be a beacon of light in this darkness, trying to give hope to humanit...

"You know me. I don't like Jokes" 0

Falling skies, a big explosion, people in danger, flames everywhere, family in peril, all that set the mood for this spectacular issue, where Batman must decide between Damian and Gotham City. If one day writers envisioned Talia as the new Ra's Al Ghul, Morrison's take of the character is definitely it:she's not anymore the devil's daughter, she's evil herself, she's the embodiement of everything against Batman's beliefs and apparently nothing will stop her cruel and mad plans. For me this was a...

Weird doesn't it even begin to explain the sick and twisted mind of the Joker, when you think he's reached the limit, he comes with more and more derranged behaviors, all an attempt to show Batman some kind of feeling he has towards the bats. In this new issue of Death of the Family crossover, we see a losing hope Batman go further and further into rooms of madness, accordingly placed in Arkham.It didn't even bother me the fact that Arkham Asylum is again in the equation, since it's a place that...

Stupid.Weak.Slow 0

After two weak issues, Hopelles finally nails down a good story, mostly because it focused more on the characters and not Arcade's evil plan or meaniest game he's ever played. Sure, the plot continues to be about a bunch of young heroes, trapped in a murder world, where only one of them can be left alive, meaning they have to kill one another. Despite the whole Hunger Games look alike (a copy), even an "homage" by Horn's cover, I really liked this issue because it was about a new character to me...

A big biological hazard that is killing only humans, that probably was unleashed by an anti mutant bilionaire and has the potential to stir up things badly for the mutant/human relation, what am I missing, YES, Cable is now branded again as a terrorist. It appears that Marvel is definitely making things bad for mutants again, since now they're are back for good, using this concept in more than one book, even using the same characters from Uncanny Avengers to try to convince Hope to help them tra...

One of the biggest disapointments to me in the Marvel NOW initiative was this title, I had such high hopes that Gillen would deliver amazing and fantastic stories of Iron Man, instead he came up with this mediocre mission of Iron Man having to rescue the Extrmis Kits from different people. Sure there was at least an evolution of quality, since after the complete failure of issues 1 and 2, issues 3 and 4 showed a little upgrade in perspective, but now, with this fifth issue, I'm glad I stopped ge...

I really didn't know what I was expecting when I got this book, for real, I like the character, I admired him way back when he used to fight Spider-Man, the whole tragic thing, being a vampire against his wishes, villain or hero, this kind of dillema. I believe Keatinge knew how to work these concepts regarding the character, but this first issue was very weak in my opinion.Of course Morbius is a B class rate character,but making a story about him becoming a bum, in a small city named Brownsvill...

It's awesome to see Betty as a smashing, raging and brainless Hulk, big, immense, pure muscles and fury, this is something that was reserved to Bruce Banner only and last issue's events that triggered this shift, resulted in this yet unexplored take of the character and how would she react once she sees what she's become. The emotional spectrum of Parker's narrative, one time focusing on Betty, then shifiting it to Machine Man (X-51) is a great asset in this series, that alligned with the S.H.I....

Evolution is a mess! Tears for you! 0

Bringing back the Age of Apocalypse was a bold move by Remender and editorial folks, but it paid off, delivering one of the best Uncanny X-Force arc stories. Letting the concept alive in a self titled brand new series were even a bolder move and again the pot was worth it! David Lapham built from the ashes of Apocalypse, a dark new world, where humanity is on the verge of extinction and Wolverine, carrying the Black Seed, is the new Overlord, doing the Celestial's evolution dirty work.

Alternate worlds stories can go both ways: or it's an incredible take, giving the readers every possible option that we would like to see, but can never happen in the current "Earth" or it can be just an incredible fail. Well, after four issues of Parker's new alternate world adventure with the Dark Avengers, it's safe to say that this story is a little bit of both. While shows some very interesting takes of characters such as Ben Grimm and Susan Richards, it's a complete failure in the subject ...
