Beyond Batman 0

Right out of the gate, I have to say that this issue was fantastic. Before today I didn't even know who Inque was. If she was in the cartoon then I completely forgot about her but after today she has become unforgettable. The issue starts out with Batman (McGinnis) attempting to stop her from stealing, "A trigger that can be adapted  from any weapon, from hand fired to remote with unlimited range...". She gets away and that's where a traditional comic story ends and a great one begins. We find t...

A must buy 0

My knowledge of the DC Universe is limited compared to that of the Marvelverse but I do know a quality story when I read it.  Flashpoint #2 was, to quote Good Old J.R., restaurant quality all the way. I'm going to spare you a  straight recap of the actual story because I think everyone should run out and pick up this book. If you liked issue #1, then you'll love #2 and if #1 left you with a feeling of, "Eh...." then still go out and issue #2! I'm a guy whose extensive knowledge of The Flash span...

Awesome, and I don't even normally buy The Flash 0

To call me a Flash fan would be a flat out lie. I haven't read a single Flash comic before but in recent weeks, my two comic buddies have talked about nothing but The Flash. I got an Flash history lesson from them and became interested in Flashpoint. I have to say it was $3.99 well spent. From Barry not being The Flash to the big Batman reveal at the end, Flashpoint #1 kept me intrigued and wanting more. I have to say, if most Flash stories are this good, then I may be adding him to my pull list...

A Solid Issue 0

This week's issue of Amazing Spider-Man is a very solid addition to a fairly decent year. Our adventure starts with Anti-Venom stopping a cocaine shipment and in the process learns that there is a something these men fear greater than him. Then our issue jumps to Peter and Carlie in bed, we learn today is a significant day for Peter, he's getting his first science paper published in the "American Science Journal". He gives the good news to Aunt May who is passing out a create full of issues to a...

Great start, bad filler. 0

I really enjoyed the main story of this book. It was a breath of fresh air, compared to the last 3 horrid issues. My only gripe is the fact that they jacked up the price to give us some really boring back-up stuff. Marcos Martin is the man, but I'd rather have more of the main story then have it cut off for the filler....

Good Riddance 0

I very, very happy that this is the last issue of the "Shed" story arch. From the beginning, I have been consistently disappointed by both the art and the story. I could go on for days why I hate reading anything that Chris Bachalo is attached to, but I won't. I'm happy I won't have to read word balloons that mainly consist of, "Stupid Monkey brain" or the gem, "Connorssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss". I would rate this book higher (because it's fina...

Lamest adaptation ever 0

 I'm far from  misogynistic, but Female Force sucks.  Each issue is about an unimportant female who doesn't belong in the comic world. The art is consistently bad and the stories are laughable at best. Any woman that's written crappy vamp fiction gets a title. Also Princess Di and some Kennedy women got books too (way to cash in on death about a decade or more late).  I've never bought a Female Force title, but I did read one in the store for a kick, so do the same and avoid this title all...

Bad art, bad story. 0

I have suffered through the clone saga, I've suffered through the mid 90s,and I've suffered through the Straczynski run but nothing Spider-Man related has sucked as much as Chris Bachalo's art, and this story. I can't even begin to tell you how much I hate this story arch. I wish I could Shed the memory of this arch from my brain permanently . Please avoid this issue at all costs. ...

Another Great Issue! 0

One night,the art and story of this comic got drunk, made a few bad decisions, and made a beautiful baby named Peter Parker #2. This issue follows the stellar first issue of the series by bringing more of what made the first issue great. Pat Olliffe once again delivers his unique and beautiful take on the Spiderverse and Back to the Future's Bob Gale delivers another stellar script. It makes you wonder if Gale hopped in the DeLorean and went to the future to make sure this story was as good as p...

The Beginning of a Dark Era 0

Todd McFarlane signals a decline in comic book art. Many argue that it was the beginning of the Rock and Roll age of comics, I feel that it's the beginning of the most aesthetically unpleasing era in comics. Because of McFarlane we got guys like, Liefield Larsen and others. The only excellent artist that spawned from that era of comics was Jim Lee. McFarlane was different from the normal fair of hte late 80s, but that did not make him the greatest thing in comics. His art has lumpy characters, b...

My Favorite Issue of Spider-Man 0

When you think of great issues of Amazing Spider-Man, the usual ones like The Night Gwen Stacy Died, Spider-Man No More and How Green Was My Goblin pop up. While these stories do deserve all the accolades they get, there are some stories that are equally good, but don't get the recognition that they deserve. This is where issue #271 comes in. It gets glossed over in the clutter of some early 1980s Spider-Man junk but it is truly a gem of a book. The art is from Ron Frenz, which is a guarantee th...

A Surprising Read. 0

Last Friday I was perusing my local comic shop and came across this book. I was surprised that a new Spider-Man title was released without me knowing (I usually have my finger on the pulse of new Spidey), but it was a great find. Pat Olliffe's art is always great. The way he draws Spidey is very distinct, but very classic too. It almost feels like an extension of a 1980s Ron Frenz, with Peter having thin facial features and a very lithe frame. The story itself is very entertaining, almost to the...
