Review: Jonah Hex #58 0

Every bullet tells a story, and in this issue of Jonah Hex, one bullet tells a lot more than one story.  The Good Once again, for the 58th time in a row, Jonah Hex provides an entertaining story about the WIld West, and this time, Jonah punches a woman square in the jaw. A majority of the panels in the book have a caption of essentially the bullet's inner-monologue, and I loved seeing the juxtaposition of what was happening in the panel. It was a really cool concept. The art and writing pla...

Review: Captain America 608 0

Zemo is trying to ruin Bucky's life, and in this latest issue, secret information on Bucky's former job could be released to the public.The Good We've seen villains try to ruin heroes lives a million times in comic books, but in this issue of Captain America, it works incredibly well simply because Bucky has such a dark past. There's a couple big things about Bucky that are revealed, in sorts, within this issue, and it will eventually turn this character's life upside-down. The book moved i...

Review: Amazing Spider-Man #639 0

MJ and Peter continue their one on one talk to discuss what happened on the day they were supposed to get married. The Good I never thought that a single issue of two people sitting around talking about their past relationship would ever be interesting, let alone a whole storyline of it. One Moment in Time proves me 100% wrong. The story is engrossing, even though there is no action within the book. It's great to see this story play out as two people try to right their wrongs. My favorite...

Review: Gotham City Sirens #14 0

Poison Ivy seems to be influenced by an outside source. Can Harley quinn and Catwoman come together to stop this?The Good I didn't hate this book, but there was nothing really drawing me to it either. There were some pretty cool concepts within the book, like a man who wasn't a man at all. He's actually a plant. Other than that, there wasn't too much to like. It was a book I just wanted to finish for the sake of saying it was over with. The Bad Maybe it's because I'm not a huge fan of any o...

Review: Artifacts #1 0

If the thirteen artifacts come together, it will bring on the destruction of the universe... And obviously, some evil entity wants this to happen. Can all of the top players in Top Cow's universe stop this from happening, or does it mean the end?   Before we get started, I'll say this. Sometimes, you have to dive right in, head-first, into a book without knowing any back-story or history of a comic. This is me with Artifacts. I read issue 0, and I am currently reading Magdalena, but other t...

Review: Franken-Castle #19 0

Franken-Castle and Dark Wolverine battle it out in an end-all be-all fight to the death. The Good Overall, I did mildly enjoy this book, mainly because it was 100% ridiculous. People are getting hit by trains, chainsaws are run through torsos, explosions, gun shots, and so much more. It's like watching a cheesy over-the-top 80s action film starring Dolph Lungren... (The Punisher?) It's back and forth one-liner dialogue featuring stabbing. If this were an independant book, featuring two char...

Review: Green Arrow #2 0

Green Arrow and Hal Jordan team up to defend the Star City woods from the new security team at Queen Industries. Featuring a shocking conclusion!  The Good It's a quick, fun book. Krul's writing breezes you through this entertaining issue as we learn a little more about the forest in Star City and that White Lantern tree we saw in issue one. Lots of great action, and lots of Ollie proving why this place is "his forest." For me, the most enjoyable part of this book is Krul's take on Green Ar...

A new creative team is slowly putting their stamp on Adventure Comics focusing more on the Legion of Super Heroes. Is the book entertaining or is it just a little too talky?  ...

Review: X-Files 30 Days of Night 0

X-Files: Well, I like the X-Files. 30 Days of Night: I like 30 Days of Night. Comic Book: I love comic books! Vampires: They annoy me, but it's 30 Days of Night, so I'll forgive them. The Good These two properties word so well together! It makes sense. There are some great elements of horror and detective work in here and I feel that this could be it's own film or television mini-series. The writers, Steve Niles and Adam Jones work really well together, and there was only one time I felt an...

Review: World War Hulks Captain America vs Wolverine #1 0

Gamma powered heroes fight each other. That's about all you can say about this story.  The Good... Not reallyThere was only one thing I liked about this whole entire issue. (Spoiler Alert, but who really cares anyway) Logan and Squee (Who the heck is Squee? I'm missing something here...) are following a woman who steps into a high class restaurant. Squee is dressed the part to get in, but Logan is not, so both characters go into a tuxedo shop, cleverly located across the street, threaten th...

Review: Daredevil #508 0

Shadowland continues! Daredevil has just committed an unspeakable act for a hero, and the Hand has declared martial law on Hell's Kitchen.   WARNING: Minor Spoilers discussed within review for those who have not read Shadowland #1.  The Good Before I discuss the details I always discuss in almost every formulaic review I put up here, I have to talk about something that blew me away in this issue. A little less than half way through the book is one of the coolest splash pages in recent comic...

Review: Batman #701 0

What happened to Batman between Batman R.I.P. and Final Crisis? Grant Morrison and Tony Daniel come together to explain what happened to the Caped Crusader in the 30 day period before Batman was killed.  The Good Grant Morrison's writing can get a little confusing, unless you're reading every issue in a story back-to-back. Maybe I'm a little dumb, but when I read R.I.P. and Final Crisis, the light bulb above my head was constantly off. This issue turned the light back on. A wave of "oh, now...

Review: Jonah Hex #57 0

Two boys trade Jonah Hex stories with each other, and eventually they find themselves meeting Jonah himself, along with a few of his "friends."  The Good It's been done a few times, but this is one of my favorite set-ups for any type of media: Two boys sharing hero stories about someone they don't know. The issue is a lot of fun, and I loved seeing Batlash and Scalphunter back in the book. Two characters that just don't get the love in the DC universe that they should. There's no hiding it ...

Review: Red Hood Loast Days #2 0

More of Jason Todd's resurrection is revealed, and what he did between that and his Red Hood days.  The Good Overall, I like the fact this story exists. I loved the first issue, and I can't wait to see how this all plays out, even though we all know how it ends up. Judd Winick's writing is as strong as ever and Cliff Richards (pages 2-9) art is great. The first four pages of Jason freaking out, were probably by far my favorite part of the issue, not just because of the action, but because o...

Review: Fantastic Four Annual #32 0

In this very special Fantastic Four Annual, Johnny Storm gets a woman pregnant, the team experiences the movie Innerspace, and the daughter of a famous villain attacks... and terminating a pregnancy... yeah.  The Good I actually was really enjoying this book (even though the art was nothing that great) up until Psycho-Woman was introduced into the story. I thought, "Hey! This is turning out to be a decent peace about family and choices, even though I feel like I'm being hit over the head wi...

Review: Amazing Spider Man #636 0

Kraven the Hunter is reborn, and Spider-Man is dead? What about the rest of the Spider-friends? Will they survive their time with the Kraven family?  The Good This book has a lot of stuff I'd normally hate, but somehow it works incredibly well: resurrections, sons/daughters of heroes/villains, the switcheroo. No one stays dead in comics, ever. However, the idea of bringing a man back to life, who didn't want to live in the first place is something I don't think we've ever seen before, and y...

Review: Amazing Spider-Ham 25th Anniversay 0

Can you believe that the Amazing Spider-Ham is 25 years old? Neither can we... Celebrate with three short stories that are actually funny.  The Good I thought i was going to hate this book. I was dreading reading it, and yet, it was incredibly entertaining. Once you get past a lot of the puns and wordplay with the character names and a bit of the dialogue, this is a very funny book. The book was made up of three stories, and the funniest and overall best was called "Why not have Spider-Ham ...

Review: thor #611 0

Asgard has fallen, Mephisto has control of the Disir, and the rest of Thor's world has been turned upside down.  The Good There is a lot going on in this issue. We have the Asgardians searching for their new king, Mephisto and his reign in Hell, and Hela is doing her thing in Hel. There's a lot of actually interesting stuff going on in the book. Usually, Thor tends to bore me, but not this issue. The artwork in here was a mixed bag for me. Any panels that consisted of medium or close-up sho...

Review: Batman Beyond #1 0

Terry McGinnis returns again in a one month time period as Batman, but this time not in an annual comic but in his own mini-series, featuring a few villains from Batman's past.  The Good More Batman Beyond! It was one of my favorite cartoon series! Anyway, it's good to see McGinnis back in the suit again, even though we saw him two weeks ago in Superman/Batman Annual #4. the artwork in the book is done by Ryan Benjamin, and it looks like Dustin Nguyen's pencils met an updated version of the...

Review: Action 890 0

Lex Luthor stars in this story as he tries to search the universe to find more power rings. More importantly, he wants a black lantern ring. During the rise of the deputy lanterns, in which Lex was an Orange Lantern, I was hoping he, and the other deputies, would keep their rings for a little while after Blackest Night. This didn't happen, but thankfully, Lex is wants that power again.  The Good Best part of this issue is the fact Lex Luthor stars in it. I've never been the biggest Superman...

Review: Namora One Shot 0

Atlas member Namora gets her own one-shot as she swims through the depths of the seas and encounters other Atlantians.   The Good First and foremost, Jeff Parker can take any character or story and make it enjoyable, and although I may have my problems with this one, I still enjoyed reading it. (His six issue run on The New Exiles is highly under-rated) We also have great art work from Sara Pichelli which is complimented by the colors pf Rachelle Rosenberg. This book, talent-wise, has a lot...

Review: Supergirl #53 0

In the wake of the War of the Supermen, Kara deals with the loss of her family and her people, and threatens to leave the life of super-heroism once and for all, while an enemy joins S.T.A.R. Labs and causes ruckus in Metropolis.  The Good I don't regularly read this book, but on occasion I've been known to pick it up and give it a read through, and after each read through I always ask myself, "Why isn't this on my pull list." It never fails. I loved the dialogue between Lana and Kara in th...

Review: Franken-Castle #18 0

Franken-Castle fights Lady Gorgon in Japan.   The Good This book is all action, which is a good thing for me because I was not a fan of pretty much everything else. It was a quick read, so I didn't struggle through it.  The Bad Maybe it's because I'm a Frank Castle fan, especially around the time Ennis was writing the book, but I could not get behind the idea of this book. It made me cringe. I was hoping this would be a little more enjoyable than it was. I mean, it's about the Punisher as ...

Review: Green Arrow #1 0

After being "banished" from Star City in the last volume, Oliver Queen, The Green Arrow, has taken refuge in the center of the demolished Star City, which has become a lush forest, and a dangerous place for criminals.   The Good Where to start? As you may know, Green Arrow has been getting pooped on the past few months, with the most recent pooping being that Green Arrow was banished from Star City, but obviously, that didn't stop him. This book has turned into what I always hoped Gr...

Review: Wolverine Origins #49 0

After the battle between Romulus and his son, Daken, Wolverine takes some time off to get away and build a cabin in the woods, and he's confronted by Nick Fury, and ghosts from his past.  The Good Yes, this is a quick read, and seems like a throw-away story, but I really like it. There's nothing wrong with enjoying a comic book about Wolverine building a cabin in the woods. The majority of this issue deals with the pain of Wolverine's past all presented to him in a somewhat dream sequence, ...

Review: Black Widow #3 0

The story continues as Black Widow and Elektra square off.  The Good I had no clue Daniel Acuña was on this book! When I realized that, I was excited. As always, Acuña does an amazing job with action. His panel transition is smooth, seamless, and it feels like you're watching an action film. He's one of the few artists that gets me excited about a dialogue-less page. One the writing side of things, Marjorie Liu wrote this book, and there's a difference of night and day between this and the ...

Review: Dark Wolverine #87 0

After having his Maramasa wrist claws stripped from him by his father, Wolverine, Daken ends up in Rome, Italy, and has a few run ins with thieves of all sizes.   The Good I'm digging on Mierco Pierfederici's art in this. It's soothing and the coloring is really great. My favorite part about all the art is the shading. The lighting effects on objects and characters feels natural and it pops out, but not in a bad way. Sadly, that's all I liked about this issue. Normally, I really enjoy this...

Review: Patricia Briggs' Alpha and Omega Cry Wolf #1 0

Based off of Patricia Brigg's novels, Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf revolves around werewolves.  The Good I didn't know until I started looking up info on this book that this was based off of a series of novels. I'm very happy to see a comic not based on vampires or zombies though, as they seemingly have over-saturated the market. Comics involving werewolves aren't as common.  The opening 6 pages were the best of the whole book. It's suspenseful, paced well, and the art fits the scene very wel...

Review: Joker's Asylum II the Mad Hatter 0

The Mad Hatter tries to find his Alice as we get a deeper look into his psyche... and lots of tea drinking.  The Good I love the look into Mad Hatter's brain, so we can get a bit more of an understanding of what makes him tick, but I feel like it's been done before. As for the art, I loved the more detailed, almost Vertigo-esque quality of art, at times. With many aspects of this issue, the good mixed in with the bad. Artwise, I loved how Giffen & Sienkiewicz drew the Joker. It was simp...

Mutants are still illegal in the Ultimate Universe, and in this issue, we meet Derek Morgan, a teen who lives with his older police officer brother and his wife. He also has a secret, he's a mutant. More specifically, a mutant with wings and claws. Can "Karen Grant" and Jimmy Hudson get to him before the police find out who he is?  The GoodFirst off, I'm so glad this book takes place in Chicago. By far, this was my favorite issue as of yet. It reminded me of the old Disney cartoon Gargoyles...

Review: Daredevil 507 0

Left Hand Path story line concludes and the scene is set up for the upcoming Shadowland story line as secrets are revealed and friends become enemies.  The Good Getting right to it, the best parts of this book were the action and panel composition. Panel composition is pretty simple during these scenes: four long panels, stretching from top to bottom, but with what's happening inside the panels, they work amazingly. I'm mainly talking about two pages here, but they blew me away. There's a s...

Review: Nemesis #2 0

The team that brought you Marvel's Civil War brings you Nemesis, an ultra-violent comic for adults by two of the industries best creators around.   The Good Batman on coke, in white. That's the best way I could describe this book. This is one of those books were Millar can essentially do whatever he wants, like Kick-Ass. But unlike Kick-Ass, I actually enjoy this book, to a degree. The thing that bugged me about Kick-Ass was the cursing. There's a bit of cursing in this book, but it fits. I...

Review: Booster Gold #33 0

Booster must go back in time in order to prove of Maxwell Lord's existence in this literally laugh out loud issue of Booster Gold.... BRIGADOOM! The Good There's a lot of comics out there that I've heard people say are funny, and then I read them quickly learning that they are not funny at all. This book actually is funny. It makes me LLOL. (Literally laugh out loud) Most of this issue is Booster Gold being Booster Gold, meaning he's just hanging out in costume talking to other costumed her...

Review: Avengers Academy #1 0

A new team of teenage Avengers comes together after months of promotion. But is this book any good, or is this something you can sweep under the rug for later?  The Good Preconceived notions be darned! After tons of those "I am in Avengers Academy" which annoyed the living heck out of me, I was ready for a sub-par teenage angst filled, poorly drawn book, and it was nothing like that. Christos Gage, who wrote Avengers: Initiative and Absolution, does a great job of in...

Review: Ultimate Comics Avengers 2 #3 0

The Ultimate universe gets introduced to the Ultimate spirit of vengeance, Ghost Rider. Can this new team of Avengers solve a group of gruesome murders and stop the Ghost Rider at the same time.  The Good As always Millar and Yu’s work is awesome. I’ve said this before, so I’ll cut to the chase. Storywise, I think this book has a lot going for it. One aspect I love is that Hawkeye is more than the archer from the 616 universe, he’s essentially Bullseye. He never misses. This was played up i...

Review: Batman Confidential #45 0

Batman and Dimeter, a vampire, have teamed up once again to fight off reanimated corpses (zombies).  The Good The one thing I'll say this book does above everything else is the Detective work from Bruce Wayne that we've missed so much over the past year. There's a lot of mystery within this issue, which is pretty cool to read, since we haven't had much of that in a Batman book in quite some time. It was a really quick read, which for me was fine since I wasn't digging on the story as much. ...

Review: Invincible #72 0

The Viltrumite War is in full swing as Conquest and Invincible go at it again.  The Good Since the first time I picked up this book, I loved it, and even though I'm 12 issues behind, I still loved this issue too. I started reading this book because I've always been a fan of Robert Kirkman's writing, and it quickly became one of my favorites because of Ryan Ottley's pencils. I love how these two guys work together, and within this issue, there are some amazing battle scenes and splash pages....

It's been a few years since we've seen hide nor hair of Terry McGinnis, well since those couple of Justice League Unlimited episodes, and he has returned to team up with Superman to take down now old timer Lex Luthor.   The Good Other than the fact it's great to see the return of what started out as the WB cartoon Batman Beyond, this book is a fun, self-contained story. You could easily get by never seeing the original Batman Beyond cartoon to enjoy it. It has all the detective elements tha...

Justice League is in the middle of a pretty big story arc called "Fatherland" in which the Fourth Reich has de-powered and killed most of Earth's heroes, and only a few remain. This time, Mr Terrific leads a group of heroes with a final resistance in order to end the Fourth Reich's reign of terror.  The Good In the years I've read comics, I can not remember a force of evil this powerful. Not the characters themselves per se, but the weaponry they use. There is little to no hope for these he...
