Wrapped up nicely. 0

This is the last issue of the volume of Action Comics before September. I've only been following this book since Paul Cornell came on, and i've enjoyed his run so far. He wrote a great lex story, and my main problme with this story is that i don't understand it. It's been fun, but what are the Doomsdays motives? it seems a bit abstract, and i don t really understand where they come from. This issue was a good ending, but defintley not perfect.  What was good? The story itself was emotional and s...

Chris Samnee? He is a genius. 0

Cap and bucky was a book I picked up because of the art. Chris Samnee is one of the best artists working in comics now. Don't get me wrong, I like Brubaker's Captain America, it's just that Chris samnee was the big draw here.  What was good?  Andreyeko and brubaker deliver a fun World War 2 story with romance, action, drama, spies, and everything else thatyou could  want. There are some fun moments, such as Steve and bucky at the movie theatre, as well as when they try to "ask out" girls at a fa...

Near perfect! Ok, absolutley perfect. 0

So here we are. The Ultimates #1. I've always liked the ultimate Universe. i read quite a bit of ultimate Spider-Man, as well as X-Men, but I never read the actual ultimates. They've been playing this up as a good starting point. This was one of the first few books i read, so I can't say it was the best but, it was really close to it.  What was good? Hickman does a great job of balancing action, character development, and story in this issue. It was completley accesible to me, a new Ultimates re...

Fear Itself isn't bringing the Thunderbolts down. 0

I've been complaining about thunderbolts lately. Fear itself seems to be spreading in to so many Marvel books right now, and just running the concept of the event into the books, and these creators haven't gotten a chance to tell good stories when being overwhelmed by crossover tie ins. This issue proves that Fear itself can't bring down the thunderbolts.   What was good?  The frog people are just the kind of crazy fun that this book needs. The plots in recent issues have been pretty sub-par, an...

Kids? Really? But Acuna 0

So the the third issue of X-men: Schism finally hits stores, and to be honest, I enjoyed it. We're provided with an in-depth look at the new hellfire club, and we gtet to see the splitting between Cyclops and Wolverine finally start. We have Daniel Acuna on art for this issue, and I cannot express how much I loved this art.   What was good? The art. I love Daniel Acuna's art so much. From the facial expressions to the poses, and the action, everything was spot on. It sets the tone for the overal...

Out with a bang. 0

If you know me, you know that I love the Secret Six. I've loved them for years. You might also know that I have been having some issues with the book recently mainly because of J Calafiore's art, and the new members of the team. The last issue here ties everything up very nicely, and in fact, changed my opinion on the last few arcs.   What was good? Almost everything was good. Gail Simone gives me everything i could have ever wanted out of this book. I love the compromise that Scandal reaches ab...

Conflicting.. 0

Okay, I'll admit it. I picked this issue up simply because of the new Ultimate Spider-Man reveal. I told myself I would avoid this book, and just buy Ultimate Spider-Man when it came out, but I was really excited for this issue.  The issue is comprised of three stories. Brian Bendis, and Sara Pichelli start off with a tale of the new Spider-Man, Miles Morales, as he fights Kangaroo. I've always loved Ultimate Spider-Man. It's been one of my favorite books for a long time, but I think Bendis thre...

Off to a good start! 0

X-Men: Schism. Where do I start? So much to go through. I've always liked the X-Men. Being more of a DC guy, the X-Men got me into Marvel.I've never been a huge fan, but I figured this was a good place to jump back in.  Schism is supposed to be the split of the X-men. There's supposed to be a huge split between Wolverine and Cyclops that leads to the foundation of two splinter X-Men groups. In this issue, we get to see the relationship between Cyclops and Wolverine grow even more, the introducti...

Bye bye, Sterling and Jamal! 0

As you've probably heard, Supergirl has a new creative team now. Taking over from Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle, are writers  Nick Spencer and James Peaty, and artist Bernard Chang. I really enjoyed Sterling and Jamal's run on Supergirl, and this issue didn't quite live up to their standards.  Story The story opens with a few college kids talking about Supergirl(for the most part). That only lasts for a page until we transition to Lois Lane and Catherine Deveroux(who I'm not familiar with), talk...

Good or Bad? You decide. 0

 Just want to get one thing out of the way first. I don't read Superman monthly. Actually, I don't read Superman. I like JMS, just not that much. G Willow Wilson and leandro Oliveira step in for a fill in, and I picked this up just because everyone said it was so bad. it was okay.  The story The story focuses on Lois Lane, who wants to get back to her old life. She thinks about Superman,and runs into her old boyfriend, Brian. He's gotten married, had kids, and they reminnisce a bit. Lois then ru...

Ending the year with a Bang! 0

   2010 is the year of the Women of Marvel, and this issue is a good example why! We have four short stories about the vaious women of marvel.  The first story focuses on the invisible Woman, and parodies Cinderella with a few twists. It's a straight up Cinderella story except Sue Storm replaces Cinderella, and Medusa and Malice act as the stepmother and stepsister. it's by Dame Darcy and Robin Ha, neither of which I'm familiar with, but I enjoyed it . It was cute, fun, and the art was very cart...

Kate Kane is back, and better than ever! 0

I can not explain how much I loved this issue! When JH Williams was on Detective Comics, it was easily one of DC's best books, I like Rucka's story, but I came back every week for Williams's absolutley stunning artwork.     Story The story itself is pretty simple, but it's defintley captivating. Bruce Wayne(yes, Bruce) is watching Kate Kane fight a group of thugs from the religion of crime. He creates a journal of sorts to record Kate's fighting styles. The pages spilt up, and we're presented wi...

Early New year's Resolution! 0

Whoa, just whoa, incredible, I'm speechless! Well, for starters, I'm enjoying the heck out of Paul Cornell and Pete Woods run on Action. As the title of my review states, I now resolve to buy anything I see with Cornell's name on it, he is fantastic! Onto the story!  Story  The story starts of in an alternate dimension. Lex Luthor finds his dead body, and also finds himself standing right next to Death. That is, Sandman's Death. Luthor fails to belive that he standing next to Death, and in the s...

Is it worth it? 0

Seriously, Robinson has a great story planed out for this crosssover, and turns it into this!? I read all five issues of this crossover(sans JSA #42), hopng that it would be worth while, and then I saw a preview of JSA #42, with what I think is singlehandedly one of the worst ieads in modern comics, the morphing of Jade and Obsidian into one big crazy creature!   Story The story starts off with the return of Alan Scott. I'm guessing the Starheart morphed Jade and Obsidian together, and they're(i...

Return to Bizarro World! 0

Supergirl not a fun book, and Sterling Gates nor Jamal Igle haven't done a great job  revitalizing the character! April Fools! That, or it's Bizarro-Girl writing that!  Story In the beginning, we start with a flashback to Bizarro World. Bizarro plans to ship himslf, and his cousin, Bizarro-Girl to Earth. He is detred by Bizarro Jimmy Olsen, and Bizarro Lois Lane, who manage to stop Bizarro from leaving, but not the rocket containing Bizarro Girl to be sent to Earth. We cut back to present time, ...

Really, another bad pun?! 0

 What is it with these puns? Last issue, it was "Crash Test", now "Crash Course"?  So, on to the story  This issue begins with the backstory of the new villain Crash. He got beaten up at school quite often, so he stole electronics, sold them, and gave the money to other boys, so they would beat the bullies up. We flash back quite quickly to the present, where Power Girl is battling Crash. Crash punches Power Girl through a couple buildings, and she then calls up"usiong her newly acquired cell ph...

OH, it's time for,,, more Roy Harper overkill! 0

Roy Harper, does anybody care about him anymore? the Arsenal miniseries was a complete monstrosity, James Robinson's magic trick ofhaving Roy lose his arm(although I'm not doubting his skills as a writer) was defintley the last straw for me. Amazing how this is what spins out of it.  Story The story starts with Cheshire, who is in a cemetary visiting the grave of Lian Harper. Who would show up but Roy Harper(now going by his totally out of style 90s yet original name Arsenal) Roy, Roy, Roy, out ...

I feel, strangley pleased! 0

Let me start off by saying that Power Girl before this, was one of my favorite books, for a year. Almost every issue delivered a fun story, with  amazing artwork. I was so p----- about the creative team change, I had so much fun reading Power Girl before this, I love Judd Winnick almost to death, but he's nothing compared to Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti writing Power Girl. Sami Basri's art had nothing on me especially next to Amanda Connor. The story connects with Power Girl's teammates in th...

Might have worked better as a Green Arrow and Oracle book! 0

I picked this issue up, hoping to find out more about Hawkeye and Mockingbird, being the DC zombie that I am. I found out that Hawkeye is basically a carbon copy of Green Arrow, while Mockingbird is a cross between Oracle and Black Canary. Hawkeye's a cocky bad@$$, while Mockingbird's more of a geeky daredevil. In the beginning of the story Mockingbird and Hawkeye are chasing down a couple of thugs, and they shoot them down. They chase down one of them, and question him, until he is shot y who i...

A little off, but you can't hate Zatanna! 0

For me, there were onlt a couple problems. I really like where the story is going already. IN the beggining, Zatanna is performing at a magic show along with actors dressed as Joker and Dr. Ligh. She escapes from their "trap", and is soon approached by a detective.(stalker) The dialogue in this parts gets humorous, but ya know, Dini, so,  He takes her to, I guess a banquet hall, where we find the bodies of many murdered animals. Strange, but we're eventually caught up to speed by Zatanna, who re...

Feeling Old school,,, 0

Now, for staters, i have absolutley no history, or had no intrest in The Spirit, but this issue changed evrything. The SPirit is one of those Golden age, old school heroes who kinda grows on you. The book gave him sort of a modern look, and modern feel. We poen in what i'm going to call, The City, and some drug dealers are trying to smuggle some candian booze into The City, and the Spirit comes in, throws a bomb in, and walks out, but doesn't say a word, it's only narraration, which sort fits a ...

The Hawks Take Flight! 0

Finally Brightest Day is here, and it's welcomed very heartily for me! There wer many things that I loved, and that I disliked about this issue. I didn't exactly enjoy the first Deadman sequence, not enough dialogue, plus a little long. I loved the Aquaman part, Mera was super smexy, I actually mistaked her for Cyclone, odd cause the first time I saw Cyclone I thought she was Mera. I don't even understand why they bothered to put Zoom in there, I think they could have done something with him and...

Aw Yeah Geoff Johns! 0

First things first, I just wanted to say "Thank You" to Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis, and all the people who made Blackest Night so @3!@#^*&(! awesome, and to Hal Jordan, foir existing! Now here's a synopsis opf the book. It picks up straight from last issue, where Sinestro had claimed the white light, and he's fighting Nekron. All of the Lanterns and Deputy Lantern are fighting the Black Lanterns, and Guy Gardner brings the cavalry, which is all the diferent colored corps, presumably summoned ...

Love Truly Conquers All! 0

And so does this book! To start off, I love Greg Rucka, although I never read  any of his Wonder Woman stuff. It sorta reminds me off Gail Simone to an extent. Nicola Scott's art is beautiful as always. And Nei Ruffino's colors were so vibrant! For a rundown, Diana embraces  her new violet ring, as she is soon confronted by Carol Ferris. Carol explains the whole situation and they fly to Coast City. This is just a small touch, but I really like the fact that when they arrive at Coast City, we se...

Yay for Indigo Lantern Atom!!! 0

Truthfully, I was looking forward to his issue more than any of the other revived titles. This doesn't disappont! For a quick rundown, we have an introduction to the Atom and the possesion of his new Indigo ring, ending with him in an Indigo Lantern outfit. He fights Black Lanterns Hawkman and Hawkgirl and basically chops off Hawkgirl's head off just like Mera did to Dolphin in Bn #2. Indigo-1 shows up and tells Ray that Indigo Tribe members can project the other light spectrum color things, whi...

Bad Girls is Good! 0

I picked up this trade a while ago,but never reviewed it. Basically,It's about a girl who moves to a new school and encounters some snobby  "Bad Girls". The new girl,Lauren chooses to hang out with these girl until they get superpowers and start ruling the school. She enlists the help of local nerd Ronald to get rid of their powers,which is when she finds out that a potion that he made gave them their powers,accidently.Lauren then obtains powers when Ronald purposely gives her the same serum tha...

Starting To Like her. 0

At first,I thought well Stephanie Brown,I don't know about her as Batgirl. It was mainly beacuse I really wanted Misfit to be the new Batgirl. I'm starting to like Stephanie as Batgirl. This issue,unlike the other issues of the new series gave Stepahnie a whole new character. She seemed to me in the first scene to be acting a lot like Misfit. The scene with Damian talking to Stephanie sorta urks me,in the fact that it just makes me hate Robin even more. I always liked Tim,but Damian's just this ...

Perfect! 0

First off Geoff Johns continues to amaze me with Blackest Night. When you think it can't get any better,it does!!!! Best issue of Blackest Night ever!  So in this issue,We see Barry Allen and Hal Jordan basically dodging the Black rings,which gets to be pretty cool, and they end up evading them We then see a sorta pickup from Green Lantern#49 with Atom,Mera and Black Lantern Jean Loring. Poor Poor Jean! Mera just rips her arm off! Why,Why Mera? They escape from the black ring,John Stewart arrive...

Not exactly what I expected. 0

Well,Im glad John Stewart gets his own issue,as theyve sorta been hinting at giving him the spotlight in the last couple issues. I am a huge John fan,but this isn't exactly what I was hoping for. What we do get is mostly random Black Lanterns fighting him.  Sadly,the only two i recognized were Driq and Katma Tui. The issue didn't really have much of a cliffhanger,but at least the art was ok. I actually enjoyed the backup tale more than the main story,I love the sorta banter bewtween The Atom and...

Judd Winnick is one of my favorite writers,but this didn't really do it for me. He managed to make it funny,though,like when Mia and Connor were talking and Mia calls him Dr Phil. The art,on the other hand was amazing.
