Review: Batman Streets of Gotham #17 0

Bruce Wayne is back in Gotham as one of the Batmen and reconnects with Selina Kyle. Meanwhile, Thomas Elliot AKA Hush, who has been posing as Bruce Wayne while the real Bruce was lost in time, has been kidnapped by a group of people who have a deep history with the Wayne family.  The Good I've been waiting for a story that's heavy Hush since the Heart of Hush storyline a few years back. For me, this is the best creative team for any of the Bat-Books. It has Paul Dini as the writer, who was ...

Review: Knight and Squire 0

Knight and Squire have a playful romp through the English countryside only to end up solving a mystery at Stone Henge.  The Good I'm REALLY conflicted about this book. Overall, it's a lot of fun, has a good spirit, and the art fits so well with the writing. It is humorous, but I never laughed out loud or chuckled. It has a very British sense of humor about it. I do really love the fact that books are coming out based on these little sub-worlds Grant Morrison set up in his Batman run. It's a...

Review: New Avengers #6 0

The battle for the eye continues as a super-powered Wolverine battles Agamotto in the light dimension.  The Good There is some great and a bit trippy artwork in the light dimension by Stuart Immonen (pencils), Wade Von Grawbadger (ink), Laura Martin, and Rain Beredo (colors). This was the most entertaining aspect of the issue. I'm usually not the biggest fan of the mystical aspects of comics, but this was a pretty cool issue with a lot of fun fight scenes. Aside from that, I wasn'...

Review: The Incredible Hulks #616 0

Hiro-Kala and Hulk come face-to-face! Will father fight son? Will Hiro-Kala destroy Earth?Will Hulk destroy Hiro?  The Good This feels like the third act of the Planet Hulk series. (Act One being Planet Hulk and Act Two being the Son of Hulk series) Although Planet Hulk is my favorite of all Hulk stories, this one is coming in a close second place. The art, done by Barry Kitson and Scott Hanna is very solid and is complimentary to the writing. It's a ...

Review: Avengers: The Children's Crusade #3 0

The search continues (and ends) for the Scarlet Witch as the Young Avengers team up with Magneto and Quicksilver in a quaint little family reunion.  The Good I've said it before, and I'll say it again: It is great to see Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung working together again on a Young Avengers book. These two guys brought us the original Young Avengers mini-series a few years back, and since then, every Young Avengers title has been lack luster because these two guys wer...

Review: Teen Titans #88 0

Doctor Caligan (a new villain?) has some plans for a young high school student, and the Teen Titans work together to stop some enraged citizens.  The Good Honestly, I never ever thought about picking this book up before, but when I saw JT Krul was writing it, it seemed like a good idea. Well, it was a good idea, since this issue was a lot of fun. I laughed out loud when I saw the villain Doctor Caligan, although I don't think I was supposed to. He looks like a mixture of a ninja and a ...

Review: Wonder Woman #604 0

The final issue of this storyline is here and a whole bunch of craziness is revealed! Will Wonder Woman come out of this alive?  The Good I really enjoyed the battle scenes within this issue. They were exciting and downright intense. The back story for the main villain in this issue, whose name I did not pick up on after reading it, was pretty cool and was an interesting look into the psyche of a madman. The best part of the issue, however, were the final few pages where there was little to...

Review: Justice Society of America #44 0

New creative team! Marc Guggenheim and Scott Kolins take over as the Justice Society of America fights a super-terrorist in Monument Point, the city Jay Garrick is now mayor of!  The Good I was a huge fan of the very short Willingham run. I also loved what Geoff Johns did with this team and this book, so needless to say, I wasn't too enthusiastic to see my favorite super-team get a new creative team... again. I am a fan of Scott Kolins work, and I love the way he draws Alan Scott, ...

Review: Action Comics #894 0

Is Lex Luthor dead? Well, he may be since Death (From the series Sandman) has crossed over into Action Comics! The Black Ring Part 5 continues in one of the most intriguing Action Comics stories in years!   The Good Where to start? I was incredibly leery about Death crossing over into the book, since Vertigo and DC characters are so different from each other in many ways. However, after reading the first few pages, I knew this was a dynamite issue. This is a great introduction to non-...

Review: Ultimate New Ultimates #4 0

Thor is reborn and he's looking for the blood of Loki.  The Good This was one action packed issue, just like the rest of them. If you're looking for a book with numerous punches to the face, and awesome splash pages, you've come to the right place. Frank Cho's work does shine a here on the splash pages. His work is beautiful when it is enlarged and spread across two pages, which happens a few times throughout this issue. There's a few really cool reveals here that will really keep you inter...

Review: Batman Beyond #5 0

The story unravels a bit more as Hush, who was revealed the last issue, leaves Terry for dead and only Catwoman can save him? And what role does Dick Grayson play in all of this?   This review will contain spoilers! The Good Loving the cover, first off. This would make an awesome poster. Dick Grayson was revealed to be Hush in the last issue, and a few people were pretty pissed about it; however, this issue turns things around as it is revealed that Dick Grayson was cloned because Waller wa...

Review: Deadpool #28 0

Deadpool continues his team-up with the Secret Avengers, but decides to do things "his way" which Steve Rogers doesn't agree with. Also, Doctor Bong is hilarious.  The Good I laughed, I laughed some more, and I felt fulfilled. It's no secret that I find Deadpool annoying. He's Wolverine for this decade, but don't let that get you down: This book is the most entertaining read Marvel has to offer. I almost took pictures of frames I laughed out loud at to show you how funny this book is, but t...

Review: Brightest Day #12 0

Martian Manhunter battles D'Kay D'Razz on Mars, while Firestorm deals with Deathstorm and his Black Lanterns.  The Good We're roughly 6 months into this storyline, and overall, it's been pretty enjoyable. This issue, in particular, has a lot of solid writing, and great artwork. If you're a Martain Manhunter fan, you'll fully enjoy this issue. This book goes pretty in depth into his history, and it does a great job at it. This issue also covers what's going on with Firestorm and Deathstorm (...

Review: Green Hornet #8 0

Green Hornet, Kato, and Black Hornet have a all out battle in Century City. Black Hornet's identity is revealed!  The Good First thing's first. I've missed out on a few issues of this series, but jumping back in was incredibly simple. I was never confused or felt lost, since the dialogue did a good job at catching me up without being too expository. Aside from that, there isn't much I didn't enjoy about this issue. Do you like action? Good because you're going to get a buttload of it in iss...

Review: Batman Odyessey #4 0

Batman deals with death and not being the hero he thinks he should be. Legendary artist Neal Adams draws and writes the book.  The Good Neal Adams is a legend. There is no doubt about it, and in this issue, his work really does shine, but sadly, that's all I enjoyed while reading this book. I searched for a few other things to like and the only thing I really came up with is that I enjoyed the letter, which really pushed the boundaries of the soap opera feel to the book. The Bad The biggest...

Review: Klaws of the Panther 0

Black Panther and Shanna team up to find Ka-Zar in the Savage Land.  The Good I'm really excited to see Klaw return in a series as a villain. It's been quite a while since we've seen him, and even though he's got the stink of Silver Age cheesiness on him, I still think he's a cool villain. The overall story in the issue of Shanna and the new Black Panther teaming up to find Ka-Zar was a pretty cool idea. We get to see some A.I.M. drones running around, and then getting their butts handed to...

Review: Pilot Season: Crosshair 0

Marc Silvestri recruits Jeff Katz to write a story about a ex-government agent, who's been enjoying his non-government life. The agent's, Justin Weller, life soon crumbles as the government hunts him down in his own suburban neighborhood, and Weller decides to step up and hunt them right back.  The Good All right, I know we've all read or seen a movie with this story at least once. (Red, The Bourne Trilogy, and Mr. and Mrs. Smith as a couple of examples) This book does have its differences ...

Review: Batman Streets of Gotham #16 0

Hush, who had plastic surgery done to look like Bruce Wayne, continues to pose as Gotham city's number one playboy while being "babysat" by Zatanna. What does he have planned for the city and who's trying to kill him?  The Good Many Streets of Gotham fans, like myself, have been waiting for this storyline to pick back up, and the creative team of Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen deliver a highly entertaining book. Even though Thomas "Hush" Elliot has been posing as Bruce Wayne for quite some tim...

The Rogues are trying to open up the original Mirror Master's "In Case of Flash, Break Glass" weapon that will unleash the mirror lords upon the world! In addition, the Renegades try to arrest Flash for murder! Top , from the 25th century, and The Flash team up to stop this from happening.  The Good Francis Manapul and Geoff Johns make an amazing team! Now that the obvious is out of the way, there's a lot more great things in this book to talk about. There's a ton of stuff happening in this...

Review: Hulk #25 0

Red Hulk has been captured, but not forgotten as Bruce Banner and Steve Rogers have greater plans for him. Sadly, not all of Earth's Mightiest Heroes realize that Red Hulk is working for the good guys now.  The Good The Loeb era Rulk is over and the Jeff Parker era begins. I've heard time and time again that people (not me though) just didn't enjoy Loeb's run on the book. Now, we have Jeff Parker writing the book, who is a solid writer and he writes books that are just plain fun to read, es...

Review: Justice Society of America Special 0

Is it Magog's end? (I hope so) The Justice Society of America comes back together in order to stop Magog.  The Good While I loved the character Gog during the Kingdom Come run of JSA, I found myself despising David Reid who later became someone I despised even more: Magog. From the looks of the solicit, it sounded like they're killing off this character, so I was intrigued. It was also drawn and written by Scott Kolins, a writer and artist I admire. I love Kolins' heavy line work ...

Review: Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #2 0

Guy Gardner, Arisia, and Kilowag team up for a secret mission, but there's a few stops they have to make first.  The Good This is the Green Lantern Corps book! No offense to the current series, but it has lost its stride. This book has everything I want from a GLC book: Guy Gardner, Kilowag, and lantern corps members going on missions, no matter how small. It must be incredibly hard to write a Green Lantern book at the moment considering, over the past 6 years, the corps has dealt with Hal ...

Review: Deadpool #27 0

Deadpool, who seemingly has way to many on-going and mini-series at the moment, gets into his 27th issue of this series, which features the awesomeness of a Daniel Way written Steve Rogers.  The Good I'll admit it. I'm a little annoyed that Deadpool has numerous amounts of books right now, and most of them are pretty mediocre, and a few are just terrible. However, this book, since the beginning, continues to be a solid and fun read thanks mostly in part to Daniel Way's awesome and "laugh ou...

Review: Batman Beyond #4 0

The identity of the masked killer is finally revealed! Is it Thomas "Hush" Elliot? And how will Terry stop this crazed killer without the help of Bruce Wayne?  The Good This has been said before by myself and fellow reviewer Zack Freeman, this book reads so much like the television show, with a little bit more of an adult twist. There are two huge reveals in this issue. We learn why Dick Grayson stopped being Nightwing and stopped talking to Bruce, and we learn the true identity of...

Review: Freedom Fighters #1 0

The Freedom Fighters and Uncle Sam have returned in this new series!  The Good I've never read a Freedom Fighters book before, and this new series does a pretty good job at introducing the readers to the characters and world, without bogging down the story. The opening to this book is amazing. There's nothing more satisfying than a bunch or racist Nazis getting the tar kicked out of them by some good ol' heroes! Those first 6 pages are the most fun I've read this week. I think Black Condor ...

Review: Amazing Screw-On Head Hardcover 0

In 2002, Mike Mignola released a single story, packed into one issue called " The Amazing Screw-On Head". 8 years later, the story, along with some other shorts written and drawn by Mike Mignola, are released in this hardcover by Dark Horse comics called The Amazing Screw-On-Head and Other Curious Objects. Mignola fanboys unite!  The Good Remember when I said "Mignola fanboys unite?" Well, I'm one of them. I love Mignola in the way G-Man loves Michael Allred, in the way Babs lo...

Review: Wolverine #1 0

Jason Aaron of Wolverine: Weapon X, and Renato Guedes of Action Comics come together to take Wolverine somewhere new... Hell.   Good Yep, Wolverine is going to Hell. Seriously. When I saw the solicit for this book, I laughed too. However, I gave the book a shot, and was glad to see Jason Aaron on it because I loved his run on Weapon X. This book is obviously more than just Wolvie trapped in Hell slicing and dicing his enemies. Essentially, without giving away too much, there's two Wolverine...

Review: Green Arrow #3 0

Green Arrow is dead... or is he? What's going on with the forest in the center of Star City? Who the heck is Galahed?  The Good This book is less about Green Arrow this issue and more about what's happening to the forest. It's kind of cool to see the characters sit in the back seat to a location. It happens occasionally, and it's cooler than seeing the same "good guy beats bad guy" story we get weekly from every other book. There's a lot of great back story about the new woman in town who t...

Review: Superman Secret Origin #6 0

Superman battles Lex Luthor and Metallo in the finale to Secret Origins.  The Good Everything? Sometimes, I wish that would suffice, but it doesn't, nor will it ever. I'm a huge HUGE fans of Gary Frank's art on this, even moreso than Geoff Johns' writing, which is almost sacrilegious for me to say. A lot of people get bummed out by the retelling of their favorite character's origins, but in the defense of this book, it really needs it. Writing styles change over the y...

Review: Legion of Super-Heroes #4 0

Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad find out who kidnapped their children. Was it a Darkseid cult or Darkseid himself? Earth-Man tries to adjust to being a member of the Legion, and Sodam Yat refuses to let the Green Lantern Corps die!  The Good Lots of great stories in this book! Out of the three mentioned above, the Lightning Lad and Saturn Girl story gets the most page time. Normally, a story about a couple finding their children would be com...

Jessica Drew gets a job at the Roxxon Corporation in order in infiltrate the company, Captain Marvel and Rick Jones learn why each of them are on Earth, and what for, and the "depowered" Ben Grimm learns he's not as depowered as he thought he was.  The Good There's a lot of great stuff happening in this book. Kree Captain Marvel is insanely awesome. Great costume design, and he's got a little bit of transformer in him as we see in this issue. We're starting to understand his purpos...

Review: Justice Society of America #42 0

The JSA and JLA continue to team up and stop the corrupted Alan Scott. The Good I'm not the biggest jla/jsa crossover fan Sure, the Lightning Saga was pretty entertaining, but for the most part, I like having these two teams separated. With the crossover, both teams work together well. As weird as it is to see one of my favorite characters, Alan Scott, as the main baddie in the run, the story makes sense and doesn't feel forced. James Robinson does a nice job here of telling an entertainin...

Review: Supergirl #55 0

Supergirl battles Bizarro Supergirl! Yes, that's pretty much the whole issue.  The Good Me hate this book! Get it? It's Bizarro speak. That means I love it. The whole issue is Supergirl battling it out with Bizarro Supergirl, and it's awesome. It never gets dull, although there's a very very small lull as we get a peak into the Daily Planet with Cat and Perry, but even that is still good stuff. My favorite part about this is the fact it kinda ties-in with the Escape from Bizarro World story...

Review: Wolverine Weapon X #16 0

After Nightcrawler's death in Second Coming, Logan learns that within Kurt's will, he asks Logan to do one last thing for him. In this series finale, we also get a glimpse into some of their history together.  The Good A lot of the time, finales for short-lived runs tend to be pretty anti-climactic or downright horrible. This is not the case here. Although I've only read about 6 issues for this series, they've all been pretty good, and this one stands above most of those issues. The whole i...

Review: Web of Spider-Man #11 0

Mary Jane and the Black Cat team up to find out what happened to Spider-Man, who is missing or possibly worse.  The Good The only thing you can really say about this book is that the artwork is great. Pepe Larraz does the art on the main story and uses a style that's just as well fitted for a 2000s animated series, but more complex. The facial expressions are a bit over-the-top, but they work well with the story, and make it a little more interesting. I am a little worried for Black Cat tho...

Review: Unwritten #16 0

Tommy comes face to face with his father, the killer, and his own world and beliefs crumbling in front of him. The Good This book is something special. It takes something we're all familiar with, the world of Harry Potter, and adds an adult spin on it. The writing of Mike Carey never fails to let me down. The writing and story, co-created by Peter Gross, is one of the freshest ideas in comics, even if it's based on a high selling novel series. This issue, more than the others, really shows ...

Review: Steve Rogers Super Soldier #2 0

Steve battles with a love from the past, as Steve tries to find out who shot Erskine, and who hired the shooter.  The Good This is what I was missing from the Captain America book. It feels like the Captain America book did the first 30 issues. Yes, even after Steve died. This book, so far, brought back the detective/covert ops feel that I was waiting for. If there's one thing Brubaker is great at (well, there's more than one actually) it's writing Steve Rogers. He really has a handle on th...

Review: Syndrome Hardcover 0

Back in April, during C2E2, I was hanging out at the Archaia booth, chatting it up, when Daniel Quantz came up to me with an iPad. At this time, I was strongly against digital comics, mainly because I was ignorant of how great it was. He showed me some pages from a book he co-wrote called Syndrome. The pages weren't lettered, but he showed me a few of his favorites. The art looked great, which, for the vast majority of us, is the first thing we judge, when we open up a book. He described th...

Review: Invincible Iron Man #29 0

Still struggling to get his life back in order, Tony Stark keeps his friends close and his enemies closer. Pepper  Potts gets a new Rescue suit, and Sasha and Justine Hammer have a few tricks up their sleeves.  The Good Fraction does something that few other writers can do, when it comes to "the big two" companies, he makes the set-up to each story as, if not more, interesting than the climax. This book isn't as much about Iron Man as it is about the key players of each story. In this case,...

Review: Secret Warriors #18 0

Dum Dum is being forced to answer questions by the United Nations Security Council and Nick and Cap share some fun war stories.  The Good It's a solid story with some great artwork. Even though there was a decent amount of action, and a good story behind it all, the best part of the book for me was the guys sitting around the table drinking, telling Captain America stories. It's a lot of fun to see these war-torn characters sit back and try and make the most out of a bad situation. I loved ...
