A Fraction of a miss 0

To be honest, I have never read anything by Matt Fraction that I hadn't thought to be decent but this continuation has to be the worst to date. In some ways (without being offensive to those who are) Matt Fraction is a bipolar writer. This conclusion to an extension series was quite weak in many ways. The parallel arcing story of the concluding Fantastic Four, which was also written by Fraction, was to some extent a decent read and had some thought provoking elements to it. Yet the latter story ...

Getting Caught Up 0

I've been finding it hard to stay with all the new titles that have been coming out. I just had a spare moment to get caught up on the last few weeks' pulls. After Age of Ultron finished, which i wasn't the biggest fan of (not that it was bad I thought that the weaving of the Avengers 12.1 issue from like the 4th series was a nice touch to show that Marvel doesn't just forget about old stories or arcs and integrates them into current events - also sorry for digressing there) I was anxious to s...

It's always sunny for Venom 0

I have to say that this issue was a bit of a wrap up. The story with the U-Foes (every time I say that name, I feel as though I should Wikipedia the team and actually care about anything that they do or say.) The 'wrap-up' as I stated earlier is only brought on by the fact that the story climaxes with a device, of sorts, that turns the tides in Venom's favor. I do, however, have to say that I like when the creative team on this series shows Flash gradually loosing control in certain situations o...

It's Always Sunny... 0

I have to say that when his ran began, I didn't have much faith in Cullen Bunn, but this issue has definitely changed beliefs. This story has had a nice progression from the developments in the Secret Avengers with Valkyrie - who I think is definitely an underrated C-lister - and the fallout of the Minimum Carnage arc. I'm not sure I really grasp the concept of why he's going to Philadelphia but I think it's going to have a nice follow-up. "The city of brotherly love" can handle Flash Thompson a...

American History 0

This issue was another issue into the "wacked-out" adventures of the "Marvel Now' Deadpool. I'm glad that the series is written with the intention of a ridiculous and funny Deadpool storyline (with actually funny dialogues and jokes). I've been enjoying the puns and presidential satire that the arc has provided and for the american history lesson being given. The story has arced well so far, in this issue we have the solution revealed to the reanimated presidents and will see how it works in the...

This series was Doomed 0

From the onset of the 7.1 issue I could already tell this series was going to be a let down. From that point Hulk is revealed to still have the capability to a human side which, for the record, is a weak write-in. The whole purpose of this series was to have hulk, yet again, become a being separate from Banner acting on his own accord. When 7.1 rolled out it basically undid all of the great development of the first 7 issues.My major problem with this issue lay in the sheer number of Doombots exp...

Pure Doom 0

Let me apologize for the Doomgasm, but this issue was a nice sending off point of a really genuinely exceptional run by Jonathan Hickman. I'm disappointed to see him go but at least I know that they brought back my favorite character, Doctor Doom.This issue explains the whereabouts of Doctor Doom after the major arc surrounding the 600th issue of the F4. There was a little drop in Future Foundation #16 where they show Doom on a throne in front of enslaved other-dimensional Doom (real life doombo...

Scarlet Symbiote 0

This issue starts a pretty cool story arc with a familiar foe. Minimum Carnage delivers an interesting tale involving the newer of the emerging spider characters - Venom and Scarlet Spider. A cloudy set of circumstances allows Carnage to escape from his confinement, leaving a pile of bodies in his wake.I think that the way that Venom is being written is still a little too much like Peter Parker and is still far too nervous sounding. To the contrary Scarlet Spider was written as expected, and I t...

OzyMANdias, OzymanDIas 0

The series that I started to get excited for at the start of August has taken a little bit of a turn. Ozymandias has lost a bit of momentum and I don't really understand why it's taken this direction. The writing has been the same - with great narratives and the tussle between The Comedian and Ozymandias is well choreographed and executed - giving this book some positives. My only problem with the writing is how quickly they gave up on the investigation of the Hooded Justice's whereabouts and ju...

Cold is The Void 0

I never thought that a team lead but Hawkeye could be so well done. I have to admit Remender is making me take a shining to this C-lister as this dynamite series rolls on. This post AvX arc continues with the same setting that the SA 21.1 dealing with this nation of villains, which I think is an interesting concept to maintain and use later. The story continues with Venom (Flash Thompson) and Ant-man/Black-Ant (Eric O'Grady) being the only two not infected members of the every-growing shadow voi...

Wolverine Reborn 0

I never have a bad thing to say about Simone Bianchi's art as it is always a great sight to behold, and this issue was no different. I think Bianchi did a great job in portraying a "typical" wolverine story arc. I'm a little disappointed in Loeb's writing because he has been on quite a few work of note (Collaborations with Tim Sale etc.). This arc dealt with more manipulation of Wolverine's origins and how yet again he has done something and been seemingly oblivious to his dealings. The arc wrap...

Venom, Monster of Evil 0

Not a bad issue from Cullen Bunn after that Deadpool KIlls nonsense. The writing for Flash in this issue is pretty standard - although a little bit more like a Peter Parker style of dialogue - but good nonetheless. This three issue arc was a little bit of a filler storyline until the Minimum Carnage (which I am quite looking forward to). I only say that because they just got off the circle of four story which they note in the end few panels, with the demonic pentagram seal on his chest. I think ...

Deadborn 0

I just have to say from the start that this issue wasn't that great. It was Liefeld epic, need I say more? This zero issue tells the origin tale of how badass Slade is from his days as a soldier. My one major problem is that Liefeld, in his infinite wisdom, didn't really show us what happened to his eye - I mean he gets shot but in a later panel his mask still has the full facial symmetry. He didn't give much of an explanation before flash-forwarding to a present panel of him in a grand armchair...

No Responsibility 0

I'm glad that I didn't drop this series A few weeks ago, because this issue was pretty cool. It dealt with the Rangers, who really are not a selling point on anything, and a big psionic monster. I think that Yost has a good handle on the series and a good take on a more badass spider-character. I love when Kaine says that he doesn't know what he's doing indicating that he really doesn't know how to be a hero and usually just wings it. The art by Pham is well done through and through. Only proble...

Harvey Birdman 0

This issue was quite a nice surprise, a better showing by Liefeld than in recent issues. and to add to that, liefeld, announced via twitter, is leaving the DC 52 series he was on, making my day. The issue, I thought, was petty straight forward, with a nice fight sequence and an even better cliff-hanger to lead into the Zero issue of the 52.I thought that the way that he wrote Pike is really, in a lot of ways, how Liefeld should have approached Deathstroke. The fighting style he emits is like the...

Bianchi is Best 0

Contrasting from the last issue, this one had a more directed approach leading into it's finale. Some of the references made toward the Evolution arc (the preceding one by the same team where Wolvie kills Sabretooth) was a nice touch by Loeb. Some of the dialogue was spotty but it seems to be speeding up in pace and I am anticipating the conclusion.Every time I see Simone Bianchi's two page murals I just have that moment of sheer acceptance of his always, yes always, fitting art form with it's d...

Remender will not be forgotten 0

I'm glad that Secret Avengers has kept the same edge and quality of his Venom run, whose departure I am disappointed by. The Taskmaster fight was, in my opinion, absolutely indicative of how his style and powers should be displayed. Throughout this issue I have found more respect for Taskmaster. My favorite line in the issue was when he comments on how Bullseye is the better shot (referencing parts of Dark Reign and Siege fyi). I thought that the banter between Clint and TM was just golden, TM d...

Rogues Rebooted 0

This issue had the rebirth of the coveted Rogues, and a nice action sequence to boot. I am more looking forward to the annual in which, I believe, this whole situation is expanded and resolved. I think it has to be the annual because the amount of drama and events that unfolded in this issue would take a few more pages than your standard 32 pager. I always liked the big team-ups and I am really liking the new Captain Cold and how he has been involved, and the Glider character I am not too famili...

This series is finally dead 0

Man, out of the entire stack of about 10 comics this week this was the one I had to get out of the way first. I wasn't expecting much from this issue, and it didn't disappoint (ironic implication). I have to admit DP v Punisher was a win/win for me, either way somebody was getting killed. Deadpool just verbally assaults Punisher's livelihood and relevance in the universe (pretty much reflecting the other universes) and say's "Dear diary, Err, Dear War Journal" which got a few good laughs toward....

A Flashy Review 0

I really liked this issue, I on;y picked it up because it had Kid Flash on the cover and I was only picking up three issues this week. I thought that KF in this issue had a lot of the lightheartedness that is usually associated with Wally West. The introduction, in fact, makes me want to start reading the new Teen Titans. The delivery of his lines throughout the panels was just great and the action was well done as well. I think any angst ridden teen could relate to the opening monologue about t...

Dead 0

I do reveal some things in this write-up, but if you are reading this for insight to buy into this series, my advice is: don't, just save your 12 bucks.Wow, so in every other review I rip this series pretty hard. In this we find Deadpool, who is still serious in his conquest to kill the X-men. A problem that I have with this series is there is absolutely no lead up to bigger character fights. It just teevo's forward to a few panels of a super-powered corpse. Magneto is the reference in question ...

Rick Remembered 0

I have to say that this run by Remender was, in my opinion, a huge success. Turning a fan favorite villain into a mercenary style hero was no easy task. Throughout the series he's been developing and presenting the flaws in Flash's life and how he overcomes these hardships. I'm disappointed that he's off this title now but my solace is that he is still and Secret Avengers, which has been awesome (for those who still want to follow venom he's on this team, for now anyway) I'm glad that I got to e...

World's Greatest 0

This issue starts off with a earlier panel, known by FF fanatics, of the arc called "World's Greatest" by Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch (highly recommended) in which a F4 from the future comes to exodus there world's population because of the decaying earth, almost a future foundation of sorts....sorry I kinda had to. Anyway it revolves around the Nu World and how it is decaying in the same fashion and the efforts to restore the Nu world. I really appreciated the link by Hickman of the Millar stor...

Canadian Bacon 0

First off I have to give and extra .5 for wolvie saying "Canadian Bacon". A little Bias from me on this one but I read Deadpool Kills #2 today and one bad Wolvie script kinda warrants another. I hate to dump on Jeph Loeb but the ending page of this issue was a bit of a letdown. There was a bit of a weak twist but it was a 6 minute read, with lots of action. I never really answered any of the follow up of the Sabertooth clones and if they all have healing factor and so forth. I thought that the C...

Ozymandias King of Kings 0

Jae Lee is, in my opinion, one of the top tier artists in comics today. I only wish that he did more series but the problem with that is that his gorgeous art style would be associated with a possible bad story. Something I liked about this issue was Ozymandias doubting himself and not 100% ready for his first acts as a vigilante. We see him, for a little while, not as confident as the world's smartest man tends to be. For me, another positive point was how the style of the text was very much li...

Slade Into Wade? 0

Man, i think the greatest feeling of reading this issue was that the whole time it felt like the Liefeld run was coming to a welcomed end. The role where still reversed in some ways - Lobo being the developed character with a serious line of dialogue and Slade pretty much sounding like a 6 year old girl. The only real difference between Deathstroke the universe killing Deadpool is that throughout this issue Slade didn't have three different points of dialogue that where interacting with each oth...

Okie Dokie 0

I'm am pretty confused as to why i'm still reading this mini-series. I thinks it's because I have a weakness for seeing things through that I start.Let me start by saying that Doom in, no way, should even be considered as a possible implication at losing in a bout to Deadpool (One panel in this is enough to turn avid comic fans off this series). Again unless this is UMVC3 there should be no possibility of Doom falling to a Schizophrenic Mercenary (also see Doomwar for a true Doom v Deadpool).Luk...

A Tall Order To Fill 0

This issue of Avenging Spiderman was a nice conclusion to the previous issue. They introduced a new twist on a new character, without spoiling, and managed to keep the same lighthearted nature of Spidey. I like the new direction of Ms. Marvel becoming the new Captain Marvel, it has a nice fit and Terry Dodson does her justice in this two issue story.The writing for Spidey was spot on and kept the laughs rolling while saving the day. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next Avenging Spiderman ...

Only in another dimension 0

Seriously only in another dimension could Deadpool beat most if any of the marvel greats. In a dimension that has absolutely no relation to the shared or ultimate universes of marvel. The premise of the comic is that Deadpool gets psychologically altered into needing to kill the coveted 'Marvels'. Without spoiling it it is pretty funny but not the "lolz" associated with Deadpool, because in this he is in a coveted villain. I am anxious to see how he takes on Wolverine (who should never, on any s...

Better Late Then Never. 0

I know this came out a week ago but i just got it. I have to say, again, that nobody should be fooled by the cover because Joe Bennett does a great job of the art on the inside. The story seems to be moving along nicely with a really good fight in this one. My faith is renewed in this series but they have to keep an eye on Liefeld, as they have been, so that this series doesn't go the way of deathstroke. All in all a pretty good read, better then the last issue, not by much, but I really have to...

Remember Remender 0

Rick Remender has just knocked another one out of the park with this issue. Continuing the story prior to the AVX tie-ins this issue follows up a really great deep seated plot that gained depth from Secret Avengers 21.1-25. I think the story writing is well plotted and left a nice cliffhanger at the end. The art by Scalera is quite fitting and I look forward to reading the next issue in a few weeks or so.Rick Remender has been like Midas towards comics, all that I have read in the last little wh...

Never judge a book by its cover... 0

Don't let the Liefeld cover fool you, this read was not that bad. The art by Joe Bennett is pretty nice, and the script, as long as Liefeld gets a ton of help, was also not that bad, although this is a late review my comic store was behind with this series so I've been catching up. The end of this issue leads into a nice little continuation but we will see where the creative team takes the savage hawkman. I feel like they got back to what the first few issues of the series were about - that is, ...

No 5 and 6? 0

The only reason why I didn't give it 5 was because the arc ended. I thought the Venom/toxin fight was awesome and the whole development was great i just wish they would of had six issues involving some sort of pun with the Savage Six but the issue was well written. Rick Remender knows what he's doing and he does a great job. Anyone who likes this Venom series should check out Secret Avengers #29 which also came out this week and the arc before the AVX tie-in was great as well.The art by by Medin...

Yo dawg we heard you liked Marvels... 0

This issue was really cool. One thing I think is great about this like is that it usually but not always is a one-shot or small arc of team-ups with Spidey and assorted Marvel heroes. Another thing is that the creative teams change almost every other issue, which also isn't a bad thing, especially when Avenging seems to be doing such great job. This issue had some goofy moments but all-in-all I like the Carol Danvers banter with Spidey as well as the the Red Robot guy.The best line is when Spide...

Remender is King 0

I read this in a waiting room, waiting on a filled prescription. This issue was panel to panel action that has been set up so nicely by Remender in the prior issues. I loved the conflict between control of the Symbiote and the Symbiote taking control. In the previous issues I really liked the involvement of Eddie Brock in his transformation from a Punisher cop out and using the Toxin symboite, great introduction by Remender. For any new readers I recomend picking up Venom 18 and 19 while grabbin...

What is wrong with Deathstroke 0

I hate to speak negatively of professional writing but, for me, there is a huge problem with the writing (not so much art) of the Deathstroke series since issue 9 and the subsequent Savage Hawkman series of the New 52.With the writing pertaining to Slade Wilson's thought bubbles: I found that his overall thought and ideas are very pessimistic and dismissive when fighting Lobo (who is a pretty lame character to begin with). In this issue I just found that a lot of the time Slade would say things ...
