The colors by Diego Simone and Michelle Davies also add a dynamism thank to lighting and contrast that truly brings the entire package together in a beautiful way.Story- This tale published by Dark Horse Comics takes place in another dystopic future.

Conflict resolved? 0

The Good Cover- This month Clayton Crain delivers a slick and poignant cover. This one has an all white background while Ninjak holds a sword to the throat of Toyo Harada who is bloody and beaten between his legs. I dig it allot! Art- Doug Brathwaite’s art is gorgeous yet surprisingly subtle. While the action flows seamlessly and the bodies are all distinct and shapely it’s in the small things that it truly shines. On the opening page as Livewire and Harada walk away from the vault ...

Introducing the Blue Marvel's evil son?! 0

The Good Art- Valerio Schiti is still here on art and he’s seen some improvement. There is now a clear distinction between the more senior Blue Marvel and the more middle aged She Hulk and Monica while Ava is clearly a teenager. Black Heroes- Roll call: Luke Cage our fearless leader is here! Monica Rambeau, Ava Ayala, Power Man and the mighty Blue Marvel are also here.Villain- I’ve been dying to see the Blue Marvel’s kids for quite awhile now. I never expected any of them to b...

The best book your not reading! 0

It’s simple yet effective and really sticks out on the comic stands.Art-Eduardo Pansicca is still on art and it appears to be one of his best illustrated issues yet.Emotion- Luke is a man out f control and out for vengeance. His life, this life he has longed for has finally resulted in tragedy. He thoug...

The GoodArt- It’s been well established already that Eduardo Pansica’s art is consistent, sharp, clean yet detailed and well suited to the high octane action.Story- Luke escapes from the subterranean fish monster.

Dull and boring 0

The GoodFamily- I enjoyed the moments between James, his father and his niece.Black Hero- James Rhodes is back in the saddle but this time as the Iron Patriot.New Mission- James is no longer on kill missions but is now a symbol of American peace. That’s cool I guess.Opening- The best part of the entire issue was the foreshadowing that James Rhodes will have a close to death situation involving an enemy in a power suit. It set a dark and somber mood in the first few pages. The BadCover- N...

The tragedy of Blue Marvel 0

The GoodArt- Greg land has taken time off the last few issues to clearly put together this gorgeous issue. There are a few hiccups but for the most part this is a good looking book (Yeah I said that about Greg Land’s art).Story- Ronin talks with Kaluu in his safe house before being attacked by Ninja Were-snakes. In the battle the safe house explodes. Elsewhere the unstable Kevin Brashear puts the whole world in danger. Blue Marvel is unable to do anything about the situationBlack Heroes- ...

Smooth flight! 0

The GoodCover- Smooth, slick and hot are the best words to describe Skyman #1 illustrated by Freddie Williams II and Dan Scott. It is worlds above the interior colors and art that much is for sure!Interior Art- Manuel Garcia’s art is distinctive and they are complimented by the deep dark pen lines of ‘Bit’. The contrast of the deep darkness of these inks really allows the colors by Marta Martinez to bring Manuel’s art to glorious life. Story- Talk about opening with a ba...

Betrayed by the Government! 0

The GoodCover- A simply gorgeous and striking image on the stands, as a Arabian inspire architecture of Cairo burns below Skyman and his striking Blue and White costume, with civilian in hand soars to the sky. I love it!Art-Manuel Garcia’s art is better than last issue; it’s not as jagged or rough. Compared to DC and Marvel’s art it lacks certain smoothness but the inks and colors really do give it a unique look.Story- Reid remembers a few years back when he was a pilot. In th...

Cyclops all red suite is sleek and sexy, Magneto’s almost pope like white costume is a radical departure from his purple and red ensemble, let’s not even mention Emma Frost’s all Black sexy back and Magik’s Britney spears inspired midrift + spikes. These all look great!Cover-The standard cover has Cyclops in the foreground decked out in red while his team in black and white flank hi...

This issue we have him give an impassioned speech in front of a great many viewers which will no doubt end up on youtube and the news making him even more of a hero to all those with mutant pride. Sure wolverine has the quite school like pristine at Jean Grey’s but those who are looking to change the world will no doub...

The GoodArt- Fabrizio Fiorentino does his best work yet as he highlights killer action, the sexy and seductive Dawn and everything has this stylized tinge I’m going to surely miss.Cover- Well this is the last hurrah for David Zavimbe before the all new status Quo sets in. This cover shows David cradling Matu Ba as his new enemy bares down on him from above his suit and base in shambles around him.New status quo- here’s hoping that with this issue marking t...

Bloody Good Start!! 1

You can view scans from this issue here!The GoodArt- Stuart Immonen is on art duty and he delivers big time! There is a subtle difference in how he illustrates modern day Scott and the teenage “Slim” version which I really dig as well as the strangely similar jaw line of furry Beast and his furless teenage self.Motivation- By starting the story off with Beast undergoing yet another mutation and him fearing that he may be at death’s door, he’s trying to do something meaningful before he dies and ...

Storm also tells us she’s now a criminal in Wakanda because she chose her team over her husband/king and subjects.Cyclops is carted off to jail by mutant haters and placed in a mutant only wing. His physical abuse at their hands is a prime example of what Magneto, Emma Frost and Scott have been spouting for awhile. They will NEVER accep...

Beautiful characterization for John Stewart 0

View Summary and Scans can be viewed hereThe GoodArt- Everything looks good, solid lines and dynamic colors.Characterization- John and Kyle are my two favorite lanterns and this issue spotlights why John is held in such high regard. Here John’s heart weighs heavy over the death of the rookie lantern at his hands as well as the grief of the lantern’s family. John more so than any other lantern has a life filled with tragedy. Every time he makes a hard decision of screws up someone dies…or a plane...

Race relations break down nightmare! 0

View Summary and Scans HereThe GoodStory- despite the wafer thin concept this issue poses many moral questions. The Avengers have not had allot of experience with the phoenix force so I understand their perception that it’s a purely destructive force. The X-men have a more intimate knowledge and relationship with the force. They have seen it destroy and create life (they had Jean, the cookoo’s, Rachel etc all wield the power for both good and bad). This is typified in the exchange between Scott ...

Too violent for it's own good 0

The mystery of what defeated the heroes and it’s imminent arrival on earth is intriguing to say the least! I’ll certainly stick around to see where things are headed!Characters- The personalities ...

Behold the new Justice League 0

View Summary and scans hereThe GoodCover- Gorgeous! Jim Lee’s style is perfectly suited to the larger than life characters of the Justice League and don’t get me started on how cool Cyborg looks!Sombre tone-DC has taken a page out of marvel’s post civil war line up and re-created the dc universe as abhorrent to superheroes and vigilantes. It works wonders in injecting freshness in to the otherwise “stale” DC comics of couple months ago. Sure I miss old continuity and sure most of my dc collectio...

Leaving the X-men 0

View Summary and scans hereThe GoodCover- Absolutely breathtaking cover art by Mark BrooksStory- Very simple and to the point, the issue serves to remove Cloak and Dagger from the X-men and finally answer the question of whether or not they are mutants. Stuart Moor handles this in a very quick and decisive manner within the very first few pages but also adds layers to what would otherwise be a cut and dry answer. Both Cloak and Dagger want different things, it’s always been a trademark of these ...
