Snitches Catch Stitches 0

Someones leaked the name of every confidential informant the government has in every criminal Organization in the Marvel U  The Good Scott Eaton turns in some really solid artwork here and I can definitely see it growing on me in the future. He's not in Deodato's class yet, but given time, I'm sure he'll win us all over. I think he'd have a stronger showing had he been given more dynamic sequences. He definitely makes the most of the one's he gets though. Valkyrie doesn't get any dialog but she ...

When Reality Challenges Perception 0

Henry and his VMS unit begin there operation on Taipan, but things get ugly, quick...The GoodI recently got into this title thanks to G-Man's strong recommendation and my love of Snyder's Detective run. Anyone familiar with my reviews for that title will know that I go on heavily about Snyder's chemistry with JOCK and Francavilla. It seems this guy has bottled lightning because the same holds true for American Vampire if not more so. No disrespect to any of the talented artists who've filled in ...

Casualties of War 0

Mark's life returns to whatever he considers to be normal, but Eve has a secret that threatens to turn his life inside out all over again.  The Good One of the best thing's about Kirkman's writing on Invincible is how naturally he writes everyday life scenes. We get a lot of these moments in this issue and they're all wonderfully done. Eve's gained a little weight since Mark was away and she's really insecure about it. Early in the issue Mark reassures her that she's gained it in all the right p...

The Gemini Complex 0

We learn what happened to Jun the night he tried to escape and the sordid history of Jun and his twin brother Hisao.   The Good To this point in the series Jun's been the biggest enigma out of all of the Glories, so I'm glad to get a little insight into the guy. The peeks into his childhood and his relationship with his brother really helps to offset their interaction in the present. Throughout the issue Spencer plays with duality and parallels and it's really subtle.  This issue is simple and s...

Me, Myselves, and I 0

Mark has been dying lately, and I mean dying a lot. Fortunately for him he's not the only one who's noticed it. In order to protect him from who or whatever is after him Mark's other selves hide him in the place they're least likely to look for him, amongst the dead enders. The Good This cover says for itself just about anything I could attempt to about the art of this title so I keep it brief. Christian Ward is a genius and like his partner Nick Spencer is a certifiable legend in the making. I'...

The Natural Order And That Which Upholds It 0

This issue picks up right where the last left off. The brothers Kilgore have found Alegria in hopes of finding out more about their powers and about the mysterious being that's been mercilessly hunting them. Unfortunately for them, before they can get any answers the Apparition renew's it's hunt.  The GoodAs always the art team is topnotch. Capullo's pencils have been on point in this series from the moment he took over from Ryan Ottely and he shows no sign of slacking off. Jonathan Glapion fill...

Holy Zombie Insurgents, Batman!!! 0

The Alpha squadron completes their latest mission just as Bravo team's called in for their first.  The Good This is quite possibly my favorite cover to have graced this series.  Like last issue, the stories split between the regular bolts and the second squad. Last week I found this to be a bit distracting, but this week the transition happens a lot more smoothly. So much so that I can say that I genuinely enjoyed it.  I liked the idea of Satana joining the T-Bolts, but she really was a bit too ...

Tainted Love and Family Ties 0

Colleen heads out to settle some family business. We learn the complicated history of Colleens mother, father, and how T.H.U.N.D.E.R. fits into it all.  The Good Fiona Staples turns in an A-1, first class, superb cover! I've never seen her work until now and I gotta say I've been taken aback. somebody please get this woman to work on their interiors Asap! I've always loved the design of Iron Maiden's costume. As  a kid she always stood out to more than any of the other characters in T.H.U.N.D.E....

What Becomes of the God of War When the Battle's Done? 0

Franks finally out of the infirmary and moved into 24/7 lockdown. It seems like Frank'll have a good while to think about what it is that Bullseye said to him as their battle ended and he's starting with what happened when he left Nam. Meanwhile a plot to eliminate Frank while he's in the big house sets into motion.  The Good This issue takes place both in the present and the past. There's a very fluid interplay between Dillon's pencils and Aarons dialog. This really sheds some light on Franks s...

Modern Art of a More Morbid Nature 0

Tony goes to Paris to investigate an astronomical anomaly and finds an old foe waiting for him with a few new tricks up his sleeve. The GoodI HATE events, but I didn't feel like the main narrative of this series was interrupted for the sake of one. In fact, this didn't feel like a tie in issue at all. I'm sure that's because both Fear Itself and Iron Man are written by the same author.The issue opens with some Resilient daily operations stuff. I've always enjoyed how Fraction handles these seque...

The Architects of Fate 0

A mysterious assailant has bombed the New Trigate bridges and it's up to the Batfamily to find out who and why. How does the history of Gotham's founding families relate to the tragic events of the present? Well that's exactly what Dick Grayson plans on finding out.  The Good I absolutely love this cover, everything about it is just so aesthetically pleasing. It reminds me of Grant Morrison's Gothic. The stained glass window with the various members of the Batfamily is an excellent touch and a r...

Lots of Flash, But Little Substance 0

Barry, other Barry, and Bart confront Zoom. Can they stop him before he puts his next nefarious plan into action?The GoodI liked that Scott Kolins and Francis Manapul shared art duties on this issue. Seeing as it's most likely the final issue of this title it's than fitting to have these two both take part in the finale. During the Reverse Flash highlight issue I wasn't a fan of how Kolins drew Zoom. The technique he used to do the motion/energy effects was just distracting to me. This go around...

So, Four Reeds Walk Through A Multidimensional Gateway... 0

Doom throws a tea party, Valeria has some 'splaining to do, and we find out just what the surviving members of the council have been up to.    The Good Absolutely Love Acuna's covers for this series. No other artists I'd rather have handling these. I've been a huge fan of his work since I first saw it during Liu's Widow run. I like the way he integrates all of my favorite reeds into it. And that look of palpable terror on Reed's face is just excellent. He put both the epically bearded Reeds in t...

Unfinished Business 0

Tim discovers an assassination plot against Bruce Lucius which has ties to his days working with the League of Assassins.  The Good Marcus To's back on art duty this month and I couldn't be happier about it. Not that the art for the Judgment of Gotham tie in issue wasn't nice in it's own right, but nobody else has that exact vibe that this title needs. Most of the Dialog in this issue occurs through Tim's internal monologuing, which is no problem, because Nicieza knows exactly how to write Tim. ...

T'Challa and Vlad's battle comes to a dramatic close as new dangers await beyond the horizon. The GoodAnother issue, another superb cover by Simone Bianche You know the drill by now. Francesco Francavilla is a one man art team and a force to be reckoned with. It's really not fair that Liss get's Bianche on covers and this guy on interiors. This issue has a lot of action. both the opening scenes which take place in the after math of Vlad's bomb exploding in the diner and Vlad and T'Challa's final...

From speaker of dung to shoveler 0

Loki disagree's with the drastic actions of the All Father and foresees a coming danger which is imperceptible to his Asgardian brethren. Problem is, being the god of mischief is one hell of a way to ruin a reputation. Allies in his quest aren't going to be easy to come by, seeing as how people would sooner cut your throat before you get the first syllable out and all.    The Good Love, love, love this cover if you read Issue 623 you'll totally appreciate the symbolism of this cover. And if you ...

The Morning After 0

The week long rager known as the Age of X has ended and everybody has one hell of a hangover. Emma and the Cuckoos offer their aid to all those who'd rather forget themselves, but not everyone wants to let go of the night that never was.  The Good Really like this cover, the AoX versions of the characters being reflected in blood is a nice touch. Taking a closer look it really has that iconic movie poster feel.  This issue starts off with a very succinct synopses of the events of AoX provided by...

Kneel Before Kruun!!! 0

former Powerlord Kruun and a host of refugees from Breakworld petition Scott for asylum on Earth. But are his pleas for his people sincere or a ruse to strike back at those he deems responsible for the fall of his empire and the source of his personal shame? The Good This issue's light on action but heavy on characterization, interaction, and dialog. And Gillen has a firm mastery of all three of these elements.   The meeting between Kruun, Scott and Agent Brand is very well written. I never rea...

Children of a Lesser Glock 0

See that cover? Yeah, Nun's with guns. If you're not interested then I know not what strange things you desire. Anyways, this issue picks up right where #1 left off. David and co. face off against a veritable army of creepy corpse kids clad in Halloween costumes. And the mystery deepens as we learn that James Church isn't exactly what  he appears to be. In fact he's something far worse...The GoodLook at that cover and tell me that ain't eight types of kickasstastic awesomeness! None the Less pac...

It's Been a Longtime, I Shouldn't Have Left You... 0

Dick's introduced to the new breed of Gotham criminal when he's called in to help analyze a crime scene that's strange even by Gotham's standards.  The Good Really like this issue's cover by JOCK. I'm a big fan of Moby Dick and the biblical tale of Jonah. This cover perfectly alludes to both these tales and just gives off that primal feel. It very much connected to that bit of the universal unconscious in me. I always talk about how Snyder and JOCK's Gotham's a living, breathing beast, ever thre...

Punisher Max #11 0

The Bullseye arc concludes with Frank's assault on Kingpins headquarters, culminating with the confrontation between Frank and Bullseye we've all been waiting for.   The Good  Love the cover  Bullseye has cracked the enigma that is Frank Castle, and just in time for the big confrontation we've all been waiting for. Bullseye's hilarious prayer to God before things kicks off serves to perfectly underscore this issue. To call this fight brutal would be like describing World War II as a minor misund...

Justice League: Generation Lost #21 0

A Requiem of Jaime Reyes...  The Good This is quite possibly one of my favorite covers to ever grace this titles and saying a lot considering the high quality of the covers on this series. Once again Dustin Nguyen keeps it simple and knocks it out of the park.   Anyone who knows me knows that I hate character deaths, but even more so I abhor the pointless requiem issue/arc that's soon to follow. The grieving process is rarely captured believably to me in comics, especially considering they take ...

Batman and Robin #21 0

Dr. Langstrom's insane rantings from last issue begin to make sense. Dick and Damian have their first confrontation with the White Knight. And the method to the White Knight's madness is revealed.  The Good This week's cover is leaps and bounds better than last issue's saltless cracker offerings.   Gleason's Artwork is nearly flawless this issue and really brings Tomasi's excellent script to life. The image of Dr. Langstrom's family angelically garbed is truly unnerving. Especially the close up ...

The suits come in to voice their concerns about The Man-Thing, meanwhile Jennifer Kale shows up to spring Man-Thing from The Raft and restore the guardian of the nexus to his rightful home? But What does he have to say about all of this?  The Good This issue highlights Man-Thing, which is something I've been waiting for, for a while. We rarely get to see the Swamp Walker in action so it was nice to see him square off with some interdimensional invaders, even if only briefly.   Man-Thing doesn't ...

The Guardians declare that Hal's to be considered an enemy of the corps, The Book of Black reveals the history of Krona and the Guardian's of the Universe, and new prophecy is discovered within it's mysterious pages.  The Good This issue does a good job of making you feel like you're really looking eons and eons into the distant past. The original appearance of the Maltusians, their uniforms bearing the symbol of the , Krona's precursor to the power ring, it all feels appropriately antiquated.  ...

The JLA, JSA, and Teen Titans arrive in Miami to aid the wounded and to discuss the actions of the White Lantern possessed Deadman. The Martian Manhunter's narrative concludes (or does it?) when he makes his decision between Earth and his home world of Mars.   The Good Absolutely love this cover by Fank and Eyring.   Gleason does a stellar job on the art this issue.

One of my favorite covers in this series.  Before this title Max Lord was one of those one and done villains who I felt had so much potential if written properly.

I've soooo missed that.   It's nice to see Sinister back around, but I wish he'd made his return in a more worthy venue.   I almost felt bad for Claudine as she tells Laura how's she's been struggling to stop Sinister from taking control of her.   The Bad I was against ...

Rhodey returns to the Military industrial complex and Gen. Babbage can's wait to make his job as unpleasant as possible. His first assignment? To hunt down a man who doesn't exist. How does one capture a ghost? Well Rhodey better find out quick fast and in a hurry.   The Good  Iron Man makes a quick cameo at the beginning of the issue. I like that it's a swift in and out appearance which allows the story to truly be about Rhodey. The interaction between the two is perfect due to Spencer's natura...

Jim and James have a long overdue talk and Dick and Tim team up to take down some smugglers.   The Good Love this Cover, it has that vintage Batman feel, very much reminds me of Morrison's Gothic run.   I'm overjoyed that Francesco Francavilla is doing art duties this issue. This guy's a one man art team and his pencils perfectly compliment Snyder's writing. The synergy between these two is electric. The chemistry between Snyder and JOCK was crazy enough, but to have that kind of dynamic with tw...

Well it would seem that I have the immense pleasure and daunting challenge of being the first reviewer to tackle this title. Well, here goes nothing! The Unwritten is a story about stories and how they have power to shape one another, us and our world. The main character of the series is Tom "Tommy" Taylor, son of world famous (and mysteriously missing) author Wilson Taylor. Wilson's beloved Tommy Taylor books are his world's equivalent of Harry Potter novels. This has caused Tom to have a most ...
