Aftermath 0

Cover: I liked the cover a lot. Art: The art was gorgeous.  I found myself stopping during the story many times admiring the art and backgrounds.  Even the citizens of Metropolis were interesting.  Story/Plot: Supergirl is dealing with a lot of pain after what happened to New Krypton.  I thought the emotions conveyed were appropriate.  It has been, I believe, a month since the big war happened.  She has already shed her tears.  I am happy to see her relationship with Lana is continuing.  The sce...

Damn the ending... 0

Cover: I loved the cover! I saw Atrocitus and Dex-Tar and I it made me very happy.  Art: The scene where it showed the returned from Brightest Day was beautiful.  Every page a masterpiece!  Plot/Characterization:  Atrocitus and Dex-Tar visit New York.  The scene where Dex-Tar comes out on the subway car makes me smile so big!   Sinestro, Hal, and Carol contemplate the white lantern.  While some of this transaction was seen before in Brightest Day, I still enjoyed this.  And where these threw cha...

Amazons United 0

Cover: I did not like the cover.  I do like the art of Nicola Scott, but the battle armor was ugly and kept thinking of Rambo when I looked at it.  Art: As said above, I like Nicola Scott's art and apparently Travis Moore's as well.  The action scenes were very well done and only one part of the art besides the cover took me out of the story.  And that was the appearance of Lieutenant Zusen.  While she looked excellent, it just reminded me too much of Avatar.  Plot/Story: The Citizenry attack Wa...

Change of the Guard 0

I am not a Hulk fan.  I did like the last movie and I have a few storylines I have enjoyed from the Hulk, but overall I find him to be a boring character.  I especially don't like the Red Hulk and all the other Hulks that have been popping up.  I am happy with just one Hulk even though I dislike him.  I find the Hulk to be a villain and I was more of a fan of those characters that tried to stop him.   In this issue, an old Hulk villain dies.  Many Marvel characters and Hulk characters show up in...

Sister War 0

I love this book even though I gave this a lower rating than usual.  Nimue vs her sister, Morgana, here.  Add a dash of Detective John Jones adventures and you have a pretty decent book.  Wagner continues to weave a great story intertwined with historical and fictional events.  The art by Hadley is excellent for Vertigo.  Morgana's story was well done and I think the coming battle will be great.  Oh,  and we find out who wins when cats vs wasps....

A Case of Mistaken Identity... 0

This title is now in the continuity after Blackest Night and the JSA All-Stars split.  The new team move into a temporary base while dealing with inner turmoil, recovery, and an incarcerated murderer.  Liberty Belle shines here as the very angry victim of gossip and allegation.  Mister Terrific does what he does and it is cool.  The art and story are well done.  My only and one complaint is after the very recent Jericho storyline in other DC books I am VERY tired of possession and mind control s...

Arkham soon to destroyed again? 0

So Jeremiah Arkham is in works to repair Arkham Asylum again, but this time outside and inside forces are trying to disrupt this process.  I am getting pretty bored with the idea of tearing down and lifting up Arkham Asylum.  Apparently the place does not work.  The funders must be out of their minds (which at least one is) to fund a many times over proven failure like this asylum.  Jeremiah is the narrator for most of the book, but we are also shown one his workers, Alyce,  who is up to no good...

Deadpool X! 0

While not a spectacularly funny issue, Deadpool #16 was a solid and interesting read.  Deadpool is upset after not being allowed to be a X-Man.  The art was pretty good, but I have to admit not to caring too much for the cover.  Deadpool is getting crazier and crazier.  Deadpool fights a certain X-Force member from his past in this issue.  Deadpool also makes plans to off an X-Man's father.  Get ready for a crazy and fun and smart read!...

Down in the Bayou! 0

Phil Hester...All I can say is wow.  I have not reviewed a comic in a long time, but after reading this issue I am going to start again.  Hester has made an intriguing beginning for a new story arc here.  I am very happy with Jackie's direction now going after host bodies of his enemy, The Sovereign.  I do have two complaints that kept this issue from being 5 stars: 1) While I do like the art by Hester in the interior of this issue...I spent many moments wishing the art inside was as good as the...

Hell Has It's New Leader! 0

The War between Neron, Lord Satanus, and Lady Blaze is over.  In my opinion, this was better, grander, and more relevant than Final Crisis.  I say this because there are actual repercussions.  There is only one leader of Hell and Purgatory now.  Things have changed in the normal world and the underworld.  This book has the death a character, many changes in roles for other characters, and a character I hate has become tolerable to me: Lobo.  There is mystery for Blue Devil and Black Alice.  Ther...

Hal...tryin on the Jewelry! 0

This issue is part Rage of the Red Lanterns, Origins & Omens, and the upcoming Blackest Night and War of Light.  What a great issue written execellently by Geoff Johns and drawn beautifully by Ivan Reis! Hal Jordan, Green Lantern, is infected by the red ring and becomes a member of the Red Lanterns of rage after Sinestro kills Laira of the Red Lanterns.  It is cool to see Hal struggle not to kill Sinestro while under the influence of the red and this issue’s conclusion is cool with Hal, but ...

The Dark Avengers' First Mission! 0

After a brilliant first issue, Norman Osborn as Iron Patriot leads HIS Avengers’ on their first mission!  This issue was almost perfect for me.  The only problem I really had with it was that Deodato had Norman’s face look too much like Tommy Lee Jones…it just took away from the issue.  I also loved the 2 different covers: the first one as seen here just rocks and the second shows Moonstone’s machinations. Roll Call: Iron Patriot (Norman Osborn) is awesome as the new leader of the Avengers, H.A....

Stale Cracker! 0

This book has lost its flavor.  Similar to JSA, JLA has too many members for their writers to really focus on.  Apparently this is the JLA's last mission before Final Crisis.  If the Origins & Omens backup is to be believed then the JLA will have a major facelift soon.  I am all for it.  In this issue, the JLA and the Shadow Cabinet battle each other and the Shadow Thief.  Hawkman also shows back up to fight the villain and to show back up in the life of Hawkgirl much to the chagrin of Red A...

INTENSE! 0

Wow...this was probably the best issue of Hellblazer I have ever read! And that is saying something for this long running series.  John Constatine is entering into a new relationship with a girl named Phoebe.  I like Phoebe and hope she sticks around.  Also, John reacquaints himself with an ancient skin-shedder named Julian.  I like Julian so far...very creepy.  The art makes the whole book scary and Milligan's writing in superb.  John's entire chest is covered in a "scab" which is really like a...

New Direction! 0

While this issue is standard hero fare as Green Arrow and Black Canary hunt Merlyn who is killing people for money, I am so happy with the new direction and creative team that I am not caring about the simplicity of this issue.  Andrew Kreisberg is such a better writer than Winick. Winick made Green Arrow/Black Canary a stupid and corny book that I despised reading.  Kreisberg is a breath of fresh air and hooray for the new artist Mike Norton. The cover on the other hand sucks arrows; Norton sho...

The "Anti-Batman" Returns! 0

I love Prometheus especially from his first two appearances.  Prometheus is Batman if he had been raised by criminals.  Besides Prometheus's fighting capability and intelligence, he also can download information into brain.  He once beat Batman in battle by downloading the moves of 30 of the greatest martial artists ever including Batman to beat Batman.  After his defeat by Batman and Martian Manhunter I was wondering why Prometheus sucked so hard.  He was beaten by Green Arrow, the Birds of Pre...

A Great Series Going Out With a Bad Issue! 0

This was not a good way to go for this series.  I have enjoyed this book quite a bit, but this two-parter really sucked.  The cover was good, but I have never been a fan really of the art of this book.  I know this issue is set in the future, but the characterization seemed off...maybe Marc Andreyko was sad for having to end it.  Sweeney Todd is a stupid villain also.Mask of Tengu for graphicnovelbookclub.com...

New Krypton continues! 0

Well my expectations were low coming into this book...all these Kryptonians is not very interesting to me...but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this book...it even has a retcon that seems out of place but right at the same time.   I never really got into the Kara Zor-El being ordered to kill her cousin. In some ways this is the story of how Supergirl came to Earth...a revisioned story and how Kara is dealing with her family being back...I think it was a pretty good story and the art ...

"Well, he does have a point..." "Yeah, on his ears!" 0

I stopped reading Marvel for about a month or two, but I decided to come back and limit the books I read.  I loved last issue of this series, but this one was even better!  Deadpool is Marvel's top funny man and I love reading his book and I am glad Cable was dropped from the title.  Here Deadpool continues fighting Skrulls in his own hilarious and weird way.  The surprise guest at the end was an added bonus as I love that character and his team.  Also add in a little Nick Fury and some Super Sk...

Terror is Right...This Book is Frightening! 0

Frighteningly bad...the plot really sux...dialogue is worse...I am all for comics where villains are the lead, but these losers can't carry a book...or mini judging by the first issue...These villains are second generation of Copperhead, Persuader, Disruptor, Bolt, Clock King, and Deathstroke...while I love Ravager she was not good here...and the plot is kinda stupid...they work for the Dark Side Club capturing young heroes to fight in their arena...boring...and what a waste of the heroes they k...

I MISS GREG RUCKA! 0

Ever since Rucka left this series, the books have been near to being deadly boring. This is no exception. Fire is walking around like she does not know what to do, but seriously wants to leave the book. Chimera is just a stupid character. The Global Guardians show for some reason that i am lost on. August General is boring as usual. Wanna read the book so far? The art is ok...I have seen better from this series. Overall I am disappointed, but DC is doing the right thing in cancelling this book n...

No Flowers for You! 0

I love Cassandra Cain. I love seeing her back in this mini-series. Cassandra Cain returns as Batgirl  and on a path of vengeance against Deathstroke and David Cain (who both returned Batgirl into a killer during 52). She is joined by Ravager (Deathstroke's daughter) and Marque...on the sidelines helping her is Oracle. Nightwing still does not trust her and is after her and Cassandra and her team have to deal with super assassins with moves similar to her.I love this issue because Cassandra needs...

Someone is Resurrected! 0

First thing...who is this character Infinity. There are hints here saying that she might not be a new character at all. Hmm. Anyways this issue is super enjoyable. Manhunter vs Black Canary...find out who has the best kung fu. Infinity checking out a secured supervillain storage room. The Huntress pulling a move I just saw in the movie The Dark Knight. Also a villain from Bab's past shows up. O'Hare killed with the art here...loved it! And the quips were done very well...great job Bedard...I am ...

Valley Forge continues... 0

Another chapter in the very good and complicated Valley Forge storyline. While Frank only makes a small appearance his actions from the past and his possible fate are the focus. I think this is a fine story and Ennis does a good job. I wasn't too impressed with Porlov's art though...I see traces of Steve Dillon, but not as good. Other than this it was great. A choice for a honest man: sully the reputation of the U.S. Armed Forces or help cover up what happened in the past. A must read...Mask of ...

Looker Returns! 0

Chuck Dixon is an amazing writer and it pains me that he is leaving this series...next issue is his last. The detail he puts in his writing is really complex and I like that. No simple mysteries here. And Dougie Braithwaite has such beautiful art...he is quickly becoming one of my favorites. This issue's big event is the return of Looker. While I don't know much about this character, besides the fact that she is a vampire, she comes into the story seamlessly. Batman was as always a scene stealer...

Hush Returns! 0

While not as good as Batman: R.I.P., this new storyline that is connected to R.I.P. called Heart of Hush is still very good. This book reminds readers what is so good about Dr. Thomas Elliot. He is ruthless, smart, and dramatic. He is one of the best of the newer batch of Batman villains in the past ten years. Here we are reminded of his past and why he hates the Wayne family so much. Also we get to see Batman and Catwoman go up against a new Batman foe that will leave you searching for a moral ...

Excellent Issue! 0

I will be totally honest...I have never read a comic with Fray in it before, but I have heard of her and when I saw the beautiful cover of this issue...I was honestly excited. The first splash page should be made into a poster...the whole Buffy vs Fray picture is very very awesome. Sure I read one review that said they were disappointed with how little Fray was here...but there were so many other things going on that I was still very happy and Fray will be in the next issue too. Dawn gets a new ...

I Changed My Mind...I Want The Darkness Back...BOO HOO 0

I have liked this series since it started, but this book was boring to me...Last issue he loses the Darkness to a female creation of his...This issue he is shot and is found by the rebels of the country Estacado took over...The ending has a not so shocking twist and this issue had all the makings of a filler issue...and Jackie's fascination with Marisol is boring as well.The art as well seemed off and it was constantly bugging me while reading this. Hopefully something exciting will happen in th...

Excellent Issue! 0

"For the Last Time, I am not a Villain, I'm a Mother Fucking Good Guy!" Just one of the hilarious lines from this excellent book! Ex Machine continues to be a joy to read each month...and I for one will continue reading. Mitchell Hundred continues working to prepare New York for President Bush's arrival. Trouble on the other hand is sabotaging everything...even going so far as spray painting "Bush=Osama" on a building. Wow! This book is soooooo not for kids by the way...nudity, language, and adu...

A' Killing Frost Giants We Will Go! 0

What an excellent issue of Thor! Probably the best of this new run so far. This issue focuses very little on the title character, but rather on the other Asgardians and more importantly Loki. We are treated to a Balder adventure here...as well a romantic prelude for Kelda...a possible revelation that may rock Asgard...and a lot of dead Frost Giants.Also this book does very well in humor. How do the Asgardians respect human law? Do they know how to play basketball? All this will be answered.The h...

The Mission Becomes More Perilous! 0

Batman’s team is split in this issue. Batman is gathering heroes for a rescue op for some fallen team members in China. Metamorpho is stuck in space with zombies. Geo-Force lets everyone he meets know he is not in the JLA anymore. Katana is fighting for consciousness. Green Arrow is questioned. Grace fights for life. And besides some cameos and minor things with Brother I we have one of my fave Bat heroes…Batgirl, armed with a sword and trying to save her teammates…even though they don’t trust t...

Watch Where You Stick Your Wick! Fine Advice From Ennis! 0

Garth Ennis does very well with war related stories with mature humor. He excels once again here. Kauffman is a likable character and his ailment this issue makes me laugh...it could have been much worse. In this issue also Kauffman gets something else that gives him more character. Chaykin's art does not disappoint and to see his work on the old planes is great. The cover could have been better, but oh well.Mask of Tengu for graphicnovelbookclub.com ...

Amazing Piece of Crap! Damn you Queseda! Damn you to Hell!! 0

Spider-Man. Spider-Man. Oh how I miss my Spider-Man.Brand New Day sux. We all know it. We should boycott the product. I did read this issue. Paper Doll is a silly and stupid villain. She is better than that meth monster that was around, but cmon. Seriously.When will Spidey return? When will Marvel see the error in their ways? The shocking ending was obvious when it was first hinted at. If you can change it once...you can change it again Queseda. Bring Mephisto back to fix this sample of Hell. Yo...

Damn Nick Fury Always Disappearing! 0

After the brilliance of the last two issues, I am very disappointed with this issue. Nick Fury was the bomb in the previous chapters...Sentry is better in small doses...a full on focus on him is boring and stale. This issue is a closer look at the Skrull's plans to take out Sentry...because he is the major overpowered, mentally unstable, hero/villain of Tony Stark. While I did like reading the Skrull Jarvis's speech to the Skrull forces...it just wasn't enough to give it a higher rating. The art...

Remember Underworld Unleashed? 0

If you do then maybe you will agree with me that this issue's bad guy, Libra, is giving whomever will join his cause their heart's desire...be ready for some pumped up villains and some major changes...and possibly the death of a Leaguer in the future. Underworld Unleashed had villains selling their souls to the demon Neron. Final Crisis is villains worshiping Darkseid. UU had many developments that are even relevant today...such as Kid Devil, who gained powers from Neron but would lose his soul...

The Green Goblin Returns In A Big Way! 0

One of the few resurrections or bringing back a dead character that I have supported is Norman Osborn. I have enjoyed his return and his leading of the Thunderbolts without the mask, costume, and gimmicks of the Green Goblin. Even here the readers are treated to Norman's breaking down under psychic manipulation and giving speeches while nude. I have always viewed him as a mix between Lex Luthor and the Joker...this makes his reemergence as the Green Goblin a big deal to me. Yes he puts his costu...

Run, Jaime, Run! 0

Another installment of The Boys arrives and I am still happy with this series. Another good one for Dynamite Entertainment! I have been a fan of Garth Ennis since his Preacher days and I am not disappointed with his work here. This superhero satire brings to light something that bugs the shit out of me: superhero resurrections. Hughie comes face to face with a resurrected hero that he himself killed and their final battle is here. Oh and the funny part it is over Blarney Cock’s former hamster, J...

Inner Examination! 0

I was shocked at how good this one shot was. I was expecting maybe a set up to Quicksilver's future interaction with X-Factor...instead we are shown Quicksilver in jail having hallucinations and having a journey of emotional discovery. What are the future plans for our favorite Marvel speedster? It looks bright if this issue is any indication. The art is beautiful and the writing is flawless. When I saw the author I almost didn't want to read it...his recent writing has been garbage...with this ...

Well this was a turd if ever there were turds with advertisements and about 20 something pages. This issue of Cable sucked. First of all my problem with the writing. Are they even trying to do a decent Cable story? I would expect more from such a major player coming out of Messiah Complex. Second, do the writers even know how Bishop's powers work. This is fucking stupid. The cover looks pretty stupid to me and the whole Cable with baby thing is getting ridiculous. The art inside is passable thou...

Who Is This Punisher? 0

Is Frank Castle Punisher here? I think not...the characterization is totally off. I have never ever ever seen Frank act this way...Faction is totally off on the writing here...all the while spinning a decent story that would work for any other vigilante with guns.The art is totally horrid and makes me want to puke all over it to give it some style and pizazz. Frank doesn't really look like Frank...he looks like a chubby pizza delivery man in a trench coat. Also when has Frank EVER been so sloppy...
