I strongly disagree with people who feel that this very short 2-issue arc is a disappointment and a waste of time. I have really enjoyed both issues.  I think Tony Daniels writing is absolutely fantastic and thats what made this issue a great issue. Guillem March's art is also fantastic and works very well with the storyline.  In this issue, we really do see Batmans "detective side" as opposed to his fighting side which we do see but not much.    SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden con...

good start off 0

I loved this BN series so i wanted to move onto the brightest day series. However, when i realised it was going to be about those resurrected characters, i started to consider whether or not i should try it seeing as i wasnt a fan of these characters and didnt really know them. So i bought #0 and to be honest, i really loved it! im starting to get into the characters such as aquaman, martian manhunter, hawkman and hawkgirl and deadman. however, i CANNOT STAND firestorm! theres something about hi...

I understand that obviously Geoff Johns and Co are bringing in new things but i just feel as if the green lantern and blackest night issues are completely on the same things: all the lanterns flying in the universe to stop nekron etc. Why does this have to go on for 10 or 15 issues ? I feel it is very repeated yet the art is fanastic and writing great as usual. 4.5/5...

Red Robin #10 was the second part of the story arc - "Collision".  The start of issue #10 links in well with the end of #9 as it carrys on with the introduction of Stephanie Brown (Batgirl). The art, like usual, is fantastic and consistant throughout. The storyline is great and isn't that hard to understand.  For a Red Robin comic, we didnt really such that much of Red Robin as it mainly involves Stephanie Brown, Ra's, Prudence, Miss Fox and a couple of scenes of Vicki Vale.  Once again, i enjoy...

fantastico ! 0

As G-man and Babs rightfully said in their video review of Batman and Robin #10, the last couple of issues in the series have not exactly been what we would expect from a Batman and Robin series. However, talk about picking up and improving - geeeesee !..  This issue was absolutely fantastic. There are no action scenes involved but does there always have to be ? The art by Andy Clarke is superb and stayed consistant throughout. Rather similar to Frank Quitely's if you like.    The last couple of...

well all i can say is thank god this arc is now over. I have to admit, i didn't necessarily enjoy this x-men type theme but oh well. I felt as if the writers of the arc cannot think of anything else to write so they just come up with something random if u understand what i'm saying. The issue itself was not bad at all. Writing is good and art is still great so nothing really to criticise in this issue. You see the result of what happens at the end of issue 17 and you also see what happens to the...

hell zombie 0

Oh, no, they aren't zombies, Zatanna clarifies for us, as the team blunders into their now spooky and desolate Hall. They're evil, and they eat hearts, but they're also smart. So, like zombies then, but with extra added head games thrown in.I'm not asking for much from Blackest Night, as I'm not reading it except where it shows up in titles that I already buy. So all I want is that it not screw up things too badly, and maybe provide a little zombie thrill or two. The formula, in the books I've c...

continues to kick ass 0

deadpool mwam issue 5 - the cover by arthur suydam is once again a simple but great cover. To be very honest, i'm starting to think that this current series is better than deadpools main series involving x-men - not that i dislike the main deadpool series. the art is good - slightly cartoony but still good, writing is also good. In this issue, we continue to see deadpools "joking" side with plenty of funny moments SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content. including a "star wars arg...

Remember when M. Night Shyamalan used to matter? When "Unbreakable" was released and viewers (particularly the superhero-comic-inclined in the audience) hailed its tense unfolding and powerful, "realistic," evocation of superhumanity, while others railed against its arch formalism, cardboard characters, and methodical pacing? When I read "Flash: Rebirth" #5, I couldn't help but be reminded of "Unbreakable." And I don't mean that as an insult. But I do mean that this issue has some of the same ...

In terms of a basic idea, the "Image United" mini-series is one that reaches high. Let relatively new Image Comics partner Robert Kirkman write a mini-series starring creations of six of the seven Image Comics founders, then have each founder draw their own character. Strictly from a logistical standpoint, it sounds like a nightmare to juggle all the pieces -- and, of course, the infamous 10th anniversary book (which only had four founders involved) was several years late. But, to everyone's cr...

After spending several months running parallel to and accentuating the action of "Blackest Night," the main "Green Lantern" title directs its plot and characters right back into the main action. Geoff Johns is the lord of the rings in this issue as all of the colors of the War of Light are represented. The issue is briskly paced, covers a large swath of the DC Universe, and sets the cast used herein upon a path that leads directly into "Blackest Night" #5. There is a disclaimer in the first pane...

The middle installments in a series are often where things slow down. You're not at the early, "this is what's going on" stage of your story, and you haven't yet hit the climax. So while it's certainly not always the case, if there's a slow stretch to be found, that's usually where it hangs out. So knowing that "Blackest Night" runs eight issues, I braced myself for a lot of exposition this issue, and sure enough, that's what I found. But just when I had gotten used to that idea... well, things ...

this comic book was so simple yet very interesting. vampire killing with machine guns, swords and everything - sylva needs a ride to a city but the taxi driver refuses as he is an american and he is in iraq. as a result, he ends up in the hands of his rival, enemy, opponent - whatever u wanna call it but it was a quality issue with art and writing perfect....

great 0

The bad news about Dark Reign - The List - Punisher is that it is only a one-shot issue. Talk about action ! There is no doubt that there is action on nearly every page and it gets from good (the start) - to UNBELIEVABLE (the end). Daken is sent out from Osborn to finish off The Punisher who had previously escaped from green goblin glider geeks (like what i did there?) and this is where the REAL action starts. The fighting goes on in the sewers - Punisher is stabbed with Dakens claws, Daken has ...

Dark Reign - The List - Wolverine = Somehow i didnt really feel as if something hit me in this bigass one-shot issue.   SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content. The starting couple of scenes are good. Book starts off with Osborn shouting. Then it moves onto a sushi bar where Wolverine currently is. He is approached by someone - have a chat blah blah blah and end up in a field where Wolverines SNIKT appears and are chased by weird naked 'things'. Anyway - skipping along, Wolverine g...

fine 0

once again, the batman and robin series continues with a great issue, arts good, writing is great. However, i think the storyline has kind of dropped from the 1st 3 issues from the 1st story arc. i really do hope we get the good storylines back on track. phillip tans art is good but i think quietly's has a slight edge....

i think the series of red robin has really been average - maybe its time for a new artist to step things up? this issue of red robin was not bad. There are scenes from the past and scenes from the present. The scenes from the past with the girl who gets bitten by the poisonous spiders is great ! that interested me a lot. But there wasnt really anything that i could say was brilliant. Its no awful and its not fantastic - just average....

great finisher 0

This comic was a great finisher to the 3-issue mini series to BATMAN: BLACKEST NIGHT.  The amount of action throughout the comic book is outstanding. Deadman doesnt have such a big part in the 3rd issue but still plays a big part in the places where he is involved. The scenes where red robin and batman have conversations with their 'zombie' parents is written brilliantly ! There is a great flamethrower scene towards the end which helps the overall action in the book. There is also a great ending...

Comic starts off with the Question roaming around Gotham regretting he ever came back here. He jumps over zombie-looking people with Batman coming to help him. they both head back to the bat cave to discuss a couple of things. They then locate the area of where robin (who is disguised as a young boy) is being held after being kidnapped along with another lot of children. One of the children is cut open on the chest but does not die. Robin escapes and changes into his costume. Azrael appears in o...

lets start off with the issues cover - cover by arthur suydam and i think its simple yet fantastic. it really does stand out. Once again, the merc with a mouth series continues with laughter, jokes, and action. there is a lot of action between deadpool and the "zombie-dinosaur" and deadpool gets blown up by hydra missiles and SOMEHOW survives. They steal the hydra space ship and head back home. However, its not so easy - the hydra organisation located on the savage land call for another space sh...

good stuff 0

Yeah - This comic really caught my eye as soon as i saw its preview. I only got into the flash a couple of months ago. However, the flash is only a good character depending on its art and i think that the flash in this comic is excellent ! I am interested in war so i think this comics plot did me well. I also think it was a good idea putting the flash and blackhawks together - that worked really well. Overall, if you like the flash etc - its definately a comic for you to read - i truly enjoyed r...

need to pick up detective annual! 0

i was impressed with this issue. I thought the art was good and the storyline was clever. The art on Azrael was fantastic and i think this will end up being very good in the Dectective annual. It will be good to see what happens to robin who is disguised as a kid and later kidnapped with another few children - overall - a 4 out of 5....

not awful 0

this issue really disappointed me. after reading the first two issues, i would think the whole 5-issue-miniseries would keep to the action all the way through but this issue was not related to caps war days. maybe bringing in the thunderbolts into this issue is wrong ? hmm - the next 2 issues better get back to what it was !...

as good as it gets 0

when blackest night came out, i wasnt going to buy the issue because i thought the whole series would be c.rap. i didnt realise why everyone was hyped up about it. however..after reading it, i understand why there was so much hype before hand and i think this series is going to be OUT OF THIS WORLD !...

brilliant tie-in 0

4.5 out of 5  i thought this was a fantastic first issue! i enjoyed every single page and you will definately feel as if you can't wait for the next issue (just annoying that its just a 3-issue mini series).   -SPOILERS-  Sene starts off in Gotham City where THOMAS AND MARTHA WAYNE's grave has been dug-up and completely destroyed by Black Hand. Batman compares it to a 'battlefield'. They cover the 2 corpses with their capes and Batman asks for the batmobile. You are then introduced to DEADMAN wh...

certainly is mayhem ! 0

INCLUDES SPOILERS  i think the first issue of Tyrese's MAYHEM is great. the comic includes action from the very start. there is a good action scene involving mayhem and mr. chang - set in his restaurants kitchen. mayhem sets off a fire on the oven and stuffs mr. changs head in. he later kills him by sticking two chopsticks in his neck. mayhem later attends a church where the priest asks him not to kill people but mayhem leaves. there is a scene where a deal takes place on a ship - and once agai...

in a civil war issue, you expect big characters with plenty of action. however this comic just did not deliver . there was nothing in it that was special. it was actually very boring - although somehow i read through all of it. some parts better than others but i did not like it one bit - sorry...

stupid enough for the readers ! 0

i disagree with you likalaruku. giving positive comments about this comic is really just wrong. the cover persuaded me to buy it as you want to know what the storyline is about. however, i was deeply disappointed with the storyline. it dragged on, it was plain,simple and boring. i hope they make storylines more interesting in the near future....

okay..thats about it. 0

i have only just bought this comic and i had a glance through it and to be honest, i was quite disappointed with the art i saw. the art and colour is really nothing special at all however, i am sure the story will be stong and interesting. just like the cover.please dont let this review put you off as it is just my opinion. if you buy this comic - you may like it !...

okay 0

I think the idea of joining two massive superheros (batman & wolverine) together is a very clever thing to do..it means having more powers and new images.The story of  the comic works very well. The art is good, imaginative and enjoyable.I wouldn't necessarily say it is a must read - but if you have the chance to read - you should....
