The Turning Point 1

I'm going to make this brief… However, I will hit all the notes that I will need to.The show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was taking a bit of a nose dive since the first episode opened with a bang. It never could find it's footing sadly, but that all changed with this episode. And the few ones leading up to it. Smart writing, good character development, an intriguing plot, amazing CGI (yes, even this has improved), all seem to have came down in the form of a flood of entertaining and good TV in...

Fish Out of Water 0

Back in my Riddler #1 review, I said that it was the best Villains month comic out there at the time, and now it has been dethroned. Before I opened the first page, I had no interest in Ocean Master aka Orm, he was pretty cool in Throne of Atlantis, but he didn't do anything for me as a villain. However, this thought was soon put to rest once the last page was over, I felt sorry for this man, but at the same time I felt horror that he could be so heartless. This character, who I've had no pr...

Prelude to Arkham War 0

This is not a game, this is real life. The Justice League is dead, including Batman, and his villains are running amuck in Gotham City. In fact, they have taken it over! Each one has a certain part of the city they run, with their own citizens and all. Now, enter Scarecrow, this is not his story, but he is the main star. He is going around what remains of Gotham and planting seeds of trust and deceit in his fellow villains. He knows... there is a war coming.The Story/WritingStory was great...

The King Has Spoken 1

In the midst of Forever Evil and Battle of the Atom. Another major event in comics is about to shake it's entire universe. In the 3rd part (out of 6) of Jonathan Hickman's galaxy-wide epic, rightly named Infinity, the war is being fought on two fronts, Earth and the rest of the Galaxy. The Kree have surrendered to the Builders, and the remaining resistance as suffered devastating loses. And if Captain America cannot come up with an alternative plan, this might be their last stand. Meanwhile...

No Time Like the Present 0

One might think the idea of time travel would be a tired old concept, especially with the X-Men. In Brain Michael Bendis' "Battle of the Atom", this is not the case at all! Bendis, along with Chris Bachal's art, makes this the most enjoyable issue out of an already spectacular event.The Story/WritingWriting wise, this is the strongest out of the other three issues. Bendis shows all the sides of the argument in sending the original X-Men back to their own timeline, giving you sympathy for what ha...

The Riddler is Back 0

Last week, we received the less than acceptable Joker issue, which many fans found lacking, myself included. I was hesitant to pick this up, but since Scott Snyder was co-wirting this issue, I had to pick it up! Boy, was I glad I did. This is arguably the best Villains Month issue out this week, if not the best overall (We will have to see how the rest of the month shapes out).The Story/WritingThe Riddler has always been one of the most interesting and one of my favorites of Batman's crazy ro...

For Lack of a Better Punch Line... 0

All I can say is... really? I love the Joker as a character, but this was embarrassing. This story follows the strange relationship between Joker and his adopted ape "son" Jackanapes. You would think that would make an entertaining story with some humorous instances... sadly, the jokes are few and far between. The Story/Writing The story felt bland, and most importantly, unnecessary. Even the attempt at Joker's backstory falls flat, giving a slight sense of sympathy for a character that...

Worlds' Finest? 0

I'm probably biased in this issue because I love Huntress, however this is probably one of the funniest titles I have read within the New 52! Considering how dark and serious the other DC books have been, this is a breath of fresh air. The chemistry between Power Girl and Huntress is that of close-knit sisters, with their snarky comebacks and their endearing moments. Their organic conversations and reactions make this book worth picking up. They keep this serious book, well... not so serious, al...
