Coffee Table Cover No003 0

Jimmy Olsen is a dick..... This is my favorite Jimmy Olsen cover, I literally laugh every time I see it. I've read the issue, it's amazing, but what is more amazing is Superman crying on the front cover. "Every tear drop is precious to me" A+ comic cover. Most of the Jimmy Olsen run covers are ridiculous, but none as far out there as this one....

Lazy Covers No002 0

Now Prof X is leaving his saddened team on a white background. At least he has his head held high on this one... 6 H-letters in a row.. new record. Wolverine is obviously over-distraught as he bends down to fix his useless red bandanna. Again pretty people with powers with problems... You're kidding me? This was the last of the 3 issues I saw with this cover... 5 years after the new mutants issue. Can't wait to find it again....

Lazy Covers No001 0

Man, those claws are so long. This, in chronological order, was the second in the X-Men Universe to use the, sad guy leaves team on white background while team in background is sad technique. But this time, Wolverine is sad too. Oh, poor guy, everyone's favorite tough guy is sad. Oh whoa is me... Pretty teenagers with pretty problems and super-powers. Life's tough, get a job. Take a look at Cyclops's stature, ridiculous. He looks like a mannequin.  ...

Lazy Covers No003/Favorite Comic Trend No001 0

This issue doesn't technically count, considering that it was the first to start this lazy trend of guy walking away from saddened team on a white background. This time it's Sunspot... This is also an example of one of my favorite comic cover trends during the 80s & 90s: Hero leaves team, team is sad. And you know what, this is actually some of Liefeld's best work. The feet are there, no one is in a ridiculous pose for once, I'm actually amazed. ...

No one is "too cool" for family 0

Awesome, character development.... Not only does he have to be The Flash and save the world, but he has to make sure his kids don't get the crap kicked out of them. And his kids are super-powered, also awesome. A whole family of super-heroes working together for the sake of the city. Thanks Mark Waid... thanks. As for Acuna, why does everyone hate this guy? He has the same watercolor style as Ross, except he puts his characters into the more standard comic book format. A breath of fresh air and ...

This is two issues in a row.... 0

Two issues in a row where it is receiving a 0.5. The Marvel Zombies must be trying to sabotage  DC's good name. Fun to read issue, still setting up the big story of the year. The stuff with the Japanese super-hero team was a great read, pretty fun stuff. HUGE reveal at the end, if you didn't look at the cover that is. Oh, and not the Batman cover, the other one. Why would you put your big reveal, right on the cover? Well, most of us knew it was happening, but there are a few who are living in a...

Disagreement with Aspen No1827 0

COUNTERPOINT:Wow!    In all honesty, I'm a big fan of the art in this series. It's different and sometimes, different is good. It feels minimalistic, giving away enough detail for you to get the point and still be drawn in. Too many times I feel overwhelmed by artwork that looks great, but has way too much going on.     Another point to the artwork is how Jock is setting up his panels. when the action hits, he has this way of setting it up like a fast paced blockbuster film. A great depth of ang...

Oh Assistant Editor's Month.... HOW DARE YOU! "Not a hoax! Not a what if! Not an imaginary story!" SPOILER... The assistant editor fell asleep and dreamed this, or something like that. This issue is ridiculously awesome. Do me a favor, shell out the $2-$4 for this book and put it on your coffee table. It is amazing... In fact, open it up and read it... Awesome... Aunt May, the Herald of Galactus... she has to gather twinkies to feed him. I better the editors, or A.E. in this case, had a good chu...

inferiorego's favorite cover No002 0

I love this cover. It was on my coffee table at my old apartment. Do we kill Hitler & stop the mass genocide? Or do we not? Tough question... awesome issue. Paradoxes galore! This issue would have gotten 5 stars if Thing was in it, but alas, we get She-Hulk. Nothing against her, she isn't a F4 member. It is a great issue, but the cover is so much better. Any cover with Hitler saluting while a team of good-guys look stunned behind him... hilarious. If you can only have one issue on your coffe...

inferiorego's favorite cover no001 0

Yes, I know... I'm copying dmz... But, in my defense, I'm a huge fan of "someone on this cover will die" covers. Anyway, the most worthless of the team dies in this issue, female Mr Fantastic. I loved this comic as a teenager, and nowadays, not so much. But the kind feelings of a 2099 world are there. I bought the whole series thinking I'd live until 2099, in which I will be 117 years old. So I could sell these books for like $1,000,000,000,000,000. And then I'd spend the money on something awes...

Serously? Really? Ugh... 0

This was made? People bought this?! I noticed it was out, and I'll be honest, the comic book store is dead today. So I "read" it. No story, no words, just fake girls in bikinis. I'm dumbfounded, at a loss for words. I gave this comic 1 stars, one star for some of the decent artwork and that's it. This is garbage. You want to see good looking women, buy a maxim or one of those book, or go onto google and type, "hot chicks". Hey, at least that's free and you don't have to waste your hard earned $2...

PICK OF THE WEEK! THAT'S RIGHT, I SAID IT! 0

Speedy and WonderGirl go on a date. And you know what? It was awesome. I try hard to stay away from the lovey dovey stuff, I'm not a 13 year old girl with a crush on Billy, who sits next to me in Science class, but  this year one run has been great and this issue was probably the funniest of the lot. It brings me back two decades when Speedy does things like call Wonder Girl a "stupid girl". Great funny stuff, I laughed out loud on this one. Or as you crazy kids call it, I lol(ed). Past tense, I...

Delayed... 0

We all know this book was delayed, no question... The thing that bugged me was the conversation Batman had two weeks ago in "Batman" where he discussed how Salvation Run "all went down". Well more like "I never thought it would have happened that way" Immediately I got excited, "HOW DID IT GO DOWN?" And then the last issue came out, predictable, unimaginative, and too tidy to end a story. Everything wrapped up so perfectly. Overall, I enjoyed it, it just was a tad-bit of a let down. ...

You know what's awesome about this book? 0

Everything. I've had my problems with Countdown, 52 & Infinite Crisis, each one from the start... And this one delivers right from the start. If you're not reading this, then something is wrong, or you're one of those Marvel Zombies. The only stuff that was just "agh" for me was the Monitor bits, I just don't care. Everything else, A+...

Enjoyable.... that's about it 0

What's going on with some of these ratings? First Secret Invasion gets .5 from a large amount of people, which happens to be a great book and now this. In no way does this deserve anything less than a 2.5, in my opinion. This book brings a whole new light to mutants in the ultimate universe, it's fun, original and doesn't bore me. I was hesitant at first, but after actually reading it, good stuff. It's like going to see the Hollywood action blockbuster, you're not expecting Oscar material, just ...

Shouldn't some of this story be in a Batman book? SPOILERS 0

This book hasn't been too great as of late, I'm hoping it  will turn around...SPOILER AREAWait a second... Why is Ras escaping from A.A. in a Nightwing book? This is a big deal, too big for a Nightwing book? This was the reason I liked it all-and-all. The escape was done well and it flowed along side the issue really well. However, I'm not a fan at all of Nightwing's hang-glider... It's annoying and a little stupid.For me, this book needs to turn around quick, when he was working for the mob, aw...

0.5? Out of 0.6 right? 0

I can't give this a five star rating by the fact that I didn't crap in my pants from the awesomeness, I came close though. The best part of the whole issue was the reveal at the end, and no it wasn't a skrull reveal. The series has been solid, however you have to read at least one of the other Avengers books to know everything that is going on. I'm only reading New Avengers and seem to understand everything pretty well.The invasion is a great idea and it's nice to see Marvel pulling off a giant ...

Solid and fun: PICK OF THE WEEK. 0

I hated this book until this story-arc started. I enjoyed the Vengence arc prior (most because of a 5th dimensional imp teaming with joker). The whole, "lets find all the kryptonite and chuck it into the sun" bit is a lot of fun and more interesting than, "that badguy is tough, lets fight him". Some pretty big revelations happen in this issue and I was surprised and excited and I can't wait to read the rest. This and JLA this week were the most fun to read. I'm tired of racking my brain right no...

Good for a character study, but.... 0

I'm usually really into these super-hero slice of life stories, but this one really didn't do anything for me. I was bored, and felt like skipping over most of the dialogue. I don't care, in this case, who the Vision loves. The A.I.M. stuff was the only thing that kept me going. This issue maybe mislead me a little. I've really been waiting for Young Avengers to come back, without the Runaways for once. And a whole issue of the Vision made me think, "Hey, maybe we'll get some Iron-Lad/Kang (pre-...

Great creative team, bad comic. MY UNRECOMMENDATION! 0

After reading this book, I set it down and contemplated driving back to the comic book store and letting them have it for free. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed every second I read this, but overall, this issue was steaming pile. It seemed thrown together haphazardly in order to just get the issue on shelves. Spoiler area, but who cares... it sucked anyway.I just didn't care what was happening to these characters, the whole idea of Jimmy beating up Darksied was preposterous, and now they're going t...

Solid issue with some great set-up 0

It's nice to see Morrison returning to a straight forward story, since the 3 Batmen piece, although I thought it was phenomenal, walked the line of experimental narrative and straight forward narrative at times. Understandably, it could be hard to follow. This story, however, not hard to follow at all. Bruce and Jezebel eat dinner and have a conversation about their relationship. You know the conversation, "Bruce, why do you always disappear?" Morrison pulls it off though.I was just as pleased w...

There will be spoilers in this review... sorry... 0

All right, review first, spoilers and complaining next.I can't think of a single issue of this book, since the 2005 (i may be wrong on the year) inception, that hasn't been short of amazing. Brubaker has made Captain America a hero again, and not only that, but it is the single most interesting book in the current Marvel comics line. The combination of Epting & D'Armata have created one of the most memorable and beautiful comics to look at in recent years. This issue, again, all set-up for w...

Glad this is almost over... 0

It is finally picking up a little, with 2 weeks left to go. Jimmy vs. Darkseid is fun, mindless garbage... garbage in a good way. Written by the awesome Paul Dini, this issue may has well been a DC animated episode, it reads like one.The art, however, is sub sub par. I felt like I was reading a amateur comic. The art is miss or almost miss each issue. The story, overall, can be a tad confusing and jumpy at times. Personally, I'm glad it's done and I am glad I stuck with it, this weekly comic bus...

Never read Green Lantern before? Well, now is your time to jump in before it gets crazier. This issue, in a nutshell, is all setup for an upcoming storyline. And if you read the last storyline, you know it's leading up to something immense. This book finally made me care what Mongul is doing in the DCU. If you read any of my reviews before, you know I hate spoiling it for the reader, and again, I won't do it here. This issue is stand alone from the current Green Lantern series and deals more wit...

Why do people read this? 0

My first question was going to be, "Why is this published?" But the answer is, "Because people read it."This is an overall review, not a review of an issue. Once a month, when this pile of garbage rolls into our store, I skim through it. I've actually read a few, and this book has no substance. Poor writing, poor art, poor story.I can sum up this book like this: Boobs & Blood.This takes some of the characters from Grimm's Fairy Tales and makes them into whores. As a huge fan of Grimm's Fairy...

This kinda sucks... alot 0

I gave this book the ol' "two issue try" and I hate to say it, it sucks. I really like the people involved in this book, but it seems Marvel decided to let Millar off his leash and told him, "Be more like Ennis". I guess that means cuss every other word. That's all I see when I read this book, swearing. I'm not offended by any means, it's just completely unrealistic. Yes, I know, it's a comic... But dialogue should be realistic in any comic. I've spent a few years in what some would call, a "rou...

Spoiler free review... 0

First off, Yu's artwork is really great in this. He can be considered an acquired taste, but his style is geared more towards the mainstream comic audience, at least for the first issue. Bendis is Bendis in here, you love him or hate him.As for the issue itself, a few Skrull reveals in this issue, both of them decently shocking. Quite a few references to earlier New Avengers issue, mainly the savage land run. There's so I'd like to say about this issue, but any talk will ruin it for the people w...

Yes, good comics don't have to have fighting on every page 0

This book has been getting a lot of flack because the teenagers in this book are actually acting like teenagers. Hulkling meets his father and they talk. Great dialogue between the two and a compelling story. A boy meets his dad and wants said dad in his life. This is more of a slice-of-life book than anything else, and I think it works very well. The chain that I work for had this to say about the book, "It plays out in a way that makes Hulkling look like a whiny, needy teen and makes Cap [Marv...

Don't be fooled by the "Wedding Special" Title 0

My boss put this in my pull box this past week. I grabbed it and said, "What the hell is your problem? I could care less about another super hero wedding." He forced me to buy it and I read it. And by god it was entertaining. The return of the Injustice League, and they are for once interesting. I think the word wedding is mentioned twice in this comic. So in reality, this has nothing to do with the wedding at all, no really, nothing to do with it, just some great fighting and some snazzy joker ...

Only people who hate storylines hate this comic 0

I know, I know, not a lot of action. Deal with it, the writting is phenomenal. So much tension building within the team, who's a skrull? who isn't a skrull? Remember when Iron Man wasn't a dick? How long was Hawkeye's shower? These questions are ALL answered, yes even the one about skrulls.... and the shower. Finally the team starts to come together after revealing the truth behind who is and isn't a skrull on the team. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever enjoyed the avengers. Ho...

Hey, look it's Kyle! Wait... isn't he Parylax? Well, not in this issue of Countdown.... Just like John Stewart & Hal Jordan aren't fighting in the war in JLA & JSA..... There is no continuity within DC anymore. There's only 52 earths right now, and their storylines have all been used up.However, this was a great issue, aside from those major errors. The Piper and Trickster stuff is a lot of fun, makes me wish they had their own series.I understand a lot of people hate this comic, but it ...

Remember when this comic was awesome? 0

When I first got back into reading comics, this was my baby. My favorite of all creations by Marvel in the last decade or so. Then, a man named Chris Claremont took over. Up until his run Exiles was a pure fun read, and the stories were great. Now, don't get me wrong,when Claremont first broke onto the scene and wrote X-everything he had some great story lines and some great characters and there's a hint of that still within Exiles. My main problem is that up until this current issue, Exiles was...

NO SPOILER REVIEW!!!! 0

This comic has been nothing but amazing since it's inception roughly five years ago. You'd think a story about the last man on earth would be nothing more than a 60 issue fuck-fest. But alas, it's so much more complicated than that.Issue 60 marks the farewell to Yorick and the gang and issue 58 is NOT a lame filler issue like you'd think. This has the most jaw dropping ending in any comic I have ever read. I have NEVER literally "dropped my jaw" to any comic ever.... until Y:58. If you love this...

Since Wednesday, people have been coming into the store, staring at the cover of Booster Gold #1 and asking, "So, is this actually any good?" My usual response is, "Oh god yes!"Take The Exiles, when the comic wasn't filled with thought bubbles, throw in some back to the future, and most importantly, add a large amount of Quantum Leap minus Scott Bakula. This is the best first issue of any comic in the past 5 years. Booster Gold travels through time with a man who refuses to reveal his name, and ...

Ennis gone wild! 0

I started reading this comic when a fellow employee showed me the first page of issue seven. Tek-Knight saying, "I can't stop fucking things". And I laughed for a good half of an hour. This issue has the same effect. Further investigation into Tek-Knight lets Tek-Knight break the ice with the boys about a story involving himself, swingwing and a catwomanesque character.... The last page of this issue is one of the funniest things I have read in quite sometime. The whole book in fact is great. Th...

I understand why this comic exists now 0

One morning Frank Miller woke up and thought to himself, "Well DC wants me to work on a comic with Jim Lee about Batman... How much can I get away with?" That's what this comic is, Frank Miller trying to get away with as much as possible before DC fires him. This issue was hilarious, I recommend reading, but keep in mind, Miller is purposely trying to fuck this comic up. The variant cover is a Miller drawn cover in which we see Batgirl wearing her costume with her nipples erect. Batgirl in this ...

Lets start off by saying, I love Frank Miller and I love most of Jim Lee's work. Now you'd think by them joining forces we'd get one fantastic comic. Well, you are wrong. At the shop, we jokingly call this run All Sh*t Batman, because we get nothing more than that. When Batman says, "I love being the gad damned batman" I cringed, literally. And lets not forget the opening with wonder woman calling some random guy a sperm bank. This is subpar material. I strongly recommend you all stop reading th...
