Captain Marvel says, "Give me that Pie!" 0

So a friend showed me a great site to look at old golden age comics (like I don't have enough to read as it is!) and I have always wanted to read a Fawcett comic, so I thought what better place to start than America's Greatest Comic!What happened to the Cheese?I've always considered golden age comics to be cheesy, because honestly the only ones I actully have read are the...well...cheesy ones! You know, the stories which are just sort outragous. I don't know what they were like in the time they ...

Mr. Element becomes...Doctor Alchemy! 0

If you read my review last week, then you would know of my annoyance about Mr. Element, but i can happy say they fixed all that in this issue!Doctor Alchemy!This is the highlight of the issue for me. Mr. Element was a...stale villain if that makes any sense. He just didn't pose a threat to Flash in the previous issue (showcase #13). I mean sure he turned a wall into another element, but (small spoiler) Flash was able to go through it easily! If you look at any of the previous antagonists, such a...

Rebuilding the Pyramid! 0

The Flash comics just keep getting better and better with each issue I read!Around the World in 80 Minutes!I think one of the highlights of this issue is the story Around the world in 80 minutes. I won’t say anything to spoil the story, because it is the best I have read out of all three issues of the Flash comics I have read. However, I will say that Barry had just exited the theater after watching a production of Around the world in 80 days with Iris and is determined to find out how long it w...

Enter: Captain Cold! 0

That's right! I'm back to review the second appearance of Barry Allen!The ArtIn my review of Showcase #4 (review placement, anyone?), I talked about the writing (and how impressed I was with it), so instead of repeating myself, let’s talk about the art instead! It’s quite different from the art I am used to seeing in comics (no glossy finish on top of it!). There was no Photoshop to make the art jump (back then, Photoshop might have just been…well, you know…a shop you sell photography equipment ...

Is this the end of Darkwing duck? 0

I really hope not.I just love his suit!i want to share something with you all. I love Riddler, but the very first ongoing series which I picked up was Darkwing Duck. Do you have a favorite series which you collected from beginning to end? I'm sure you do. Darkwing Duck was that series for me. I started getting into comics in late 2009 and I joined this site in January 2010 (Nearly 2 years ago! god, I'm old, or I feel like it sometimes when people ask me questions about the site). In the time bet...

Next Stop, Duckburg! 0

Hello all! Welcome to the last issue of Duck Tales and the second to last issue of the Dangerous Currency arc. I would like to start by saying this series has been a fun ride and I look forward to the future, whatever that brings.Recap!!Ok, so the combined team up between the Fearsome Five, the Beagle Boys, the Phantom Blot and the newly formed Eve-IL have taken over St. Canard, so its up to Darkwing Duck and company to defeat them!ArtThe art is amazing. Its surprising to think that this is the ...

Now Presenting…Barry Allen aka The Flash! 0

Let me begin by saying I am astounded, flabbergasted and bamboozled (glad we did introductions!). I mean, not a single soul has reviewed the first appearance of Barry Allen also known as The (second) Flash! Why is that? He’s been such an important part of DC, so it’s surprising that I am the first. To right this injustice to this iconic character, I have decided I will review the silver age appearances of this character starting with this comic (I have digital copies of all of those comics). So,...

Running from Shadows and Treacle Sandwiches 0

Snarked has reached its second issue! And May I say the adventure is in full swing!The GryphonLet me start the review by looking at the issue's villain, who also is one of Roger Langridge's Snark-ified Carroll Characters (Hmm...Snark-ified...I like it! I'll send it to Webster's Dictionary!). The Gryphon, in his first appearance in Carroll's Alice's adventures in Wonderland, was a minor character and served to explain (along side the mock turtle) the who and what-nots of Wonderland. Mr. Langridge...

Da Da Danger! 0

With the second issue of the Darkwing Duck / Duck Tales Crossover (Dangerous Currency!), the action only heats up! (and that is an understatement if I ever typed one!). This is the moment I wish we could vote higher than just 5 stars...Recap!So St. Canard is being taken over by an evil-inducing ink and only the combined powers of Uncle Scrooge and Darkwing…so yeah! There's a recap! Oh, and now our heroes are now going to the heart of all the evil to confront the villains!Gosalyn and her interact...

It was worth the wait! 0

I complained about the quality of Duck Tales and the pacing and such in previous reviews of the series. But, this issue is perfect! To make things even better this is the start of the first official crossover with Duck Tales and Darkwing Duck: also known as Dangerous Currency!Art and WritingThe art is wonderful! Perhaps it was because of the more whimsical arc or perhaps it was the influence of James Silvani. Either way it was good. Same goes for the writing. The previous arc was alright and sor...

Up in smoke! (or: 13 reasons to read this series) 0

Guess I am in a list making mood. Any way, lets begin:The Art: The art is fantastic! Mr. Ben Morse actually makes his art look like the TV series this 6 parter is based on! Not only that, but his style is really quite graceful looking. Its very different from the styles I have seen before. It doesn't look like regular pencil and ink. Its like the artist has a paint brush or something, because I don't know how they could get some of these curved edges which I think would be impossible for me to i...

"Very interesting...Very Interesting INDEED." 0

A few months ago, I reviewed the #0 issue of a peculiarly named series. Now, two months later lets look at issue #1!The Looking Glass is ShatteredAs users who looked at my past review will remember, this series is based on Lewis Carroll's tales from Wonderland. However, this is not your grandmother's wonderland (and most defititly not your great grandmother's wonderland!). Roger Langridge brings us something new and different. We don't see an Alice in this story. Instead, it focuses on the more ...

And so it begins to get Dangerious... 0

Alright upon starting this review I must say:RecapDarkwing and Launchpad are both running for mayor! (theres actully a third person running, but we can forget her, she's not important...) However, they must first deal with the Menace known as Suff-rage (page coming soon to CV!). Suff-Rage had created several supervillains (such as Cat-Tankerous and One-shot) in order to prepare herself to defeat darkwing.Cameo CounterThere's actully low number of cameos James Silvani put into this comic, but he ...

Iffy story, but alright ending... 0

Let me say that I am a Sherlockian. I love Sherlock Holmes, espeshelly those stories by the Great Arthur Conan Doyle (I was the one who created the Creator page for the guy, for the record). So, when I was heard about this series I really looked forward to it. Here is my review of the whole 6-parter (just because I didn't feel like doing a review previously for this series).ConceptThe original concept really sounded like the film "Young Sherlock holmes" and at times there is a feel to it (in fac...

The Unknown has a new adress...in comics! 0

Let me say that I am most definitly a fan of the SyFy ("Imagine Greater") series. I was mopping about what with the DC revamp wiping out my pull list and Darkwing Duck ending soon, but when I heard about this series I was over joyed! So lets get to reviewing, shall we?  The Writing!If you enjoy Warehouse 13 (like I do) with its querky jokes and adventurous tone, you will enjoy this series. See, this comic is written by the same writers as the show! This means there are no lines in this comic whi...

Who watchs the Splotchmen? 0

If you enjoy the Simpsons (like I do) and have read Watchmen (if you haven't...I don't know who or what you are, but we will find you and force a book in front of you!), then you would enjoy this comic. Consider it Watchmen in the Simpson universe (which has super-identities added to some of the regular characters).  The red stain Knowing Watchmen, you would know of that familiar button of the comedian's which starts the story (and ends it). This parody is ...

Lets get dangerous!

A Lewis Carroll Story 0

I just got my comics today, so there was a week delay in reviewing this, which I apologize for.  Story This is actually just an introduction to the the characters; a prologue as it were to get introduced to the characters; so it isn't much to the story. The basic idea to the story is that the walrus and the carpenter literally skip into the palace to get food. There they meet the princess who believes they are inspecting for what she dreads the most: Snarks!  I must say this seems to be more of ...

It's a Duck Blur! 0

Before I leave for a relative's house and then the airport to New York City, I thought I'd spit out one last Review.  Recap Scrooge and Rockerduck have made a bet to see who can return the most artifact to their Rightful Owners. However, Rockerduck really wants to win the bet, so he has hired Camile Chameleon and the Beagle Boys to prevent Scrooge from returning his first artifact. Thats where this issue picks up with Scrooge fighting the Beagle Boys (with...

What's purple and greeen and bleeds profusely? 0

I went to this issue thinking I'd recamend a review or maybe even comment, but seeing that there are no reviews in sight currently I thought I'd review it myself!  There are actually three different stories concluding in this issue: Two's face's, Kitrina Falcone's and  Riddler/Enigma's.  Two Face Two face has always been known for being troubled. He was troubled when he was District Attorney Harvey Dent and had acid splashed on half of his face. He was troubled when he became ...

Purrrrfect Storm! 0

Darkwing Duck is running for Mayor...what could go wrong?   The Style of Writing When I first heard about this arc (which is not an arc) of One-shots I was excited. Unlike the others series I have read, Darkwing Duck has normally had 4 issues per story, so I love that Ian Brill (who aproved of my work on this site...I'm still excited!!!) is challenging himself by doing stories that don't continue into the next issue. I love the stories that they've done, don't get me wrong, but having...

A spotlight on the women! 0

Been a little busy, but without further ado: lets start the review! (boy, I am a poet! it rhyme!) This second issue of Duck Tales was interesting. There were several things I liked about it and some things I didn’t so much like.   Recap How ‘bout we start with a recap of the story thus far, shall we? If you read my review from issue #1, you would know that the Quinta-Quadrillion-zillionaire (their term, not mine), Uncle Scrooge had made a bet with John D. Rockerduck (a rich duck...

The Begining of Something, but what? 0

In honor of that Dangerous duck's comic anniversary, I thought I would review lucky number 13.  The cover Lets start with the cover, shall we?

Life is like a Hurricane, Again! 0

I am a bit late in reviewing this (thought someone else would review it...*coagh* Gman *coagh), but anyway on to the review!    And Uncle Scrooge and his creators jump into a new series, not knowing where it will lead them! When I heard there was going to be a duck tales comic (outside of Uncle Scrooge), I didn't really jump in my seat. Granted I have seen the entire series a few times and enjoyed it, but I am mostly a Darkwing Duck Fan. However, when my Duck eyes caught onto the phrase "...

A comic fighting over a comic 1

A while back a friend of mine heard I was interested in comics so he gave me several perfectly legal (Cough cough) cds of digital comics. I haven't really gotten to reading many of them (there are several cd and within are several series), but recently I looked at my list of things to check out and this was among them. I guess I put it on there because of the appearance of the riddler (which I am unable to find). OK, after that long introduction, lets talk flash comics!This comic was interesting...

When I bought the individual issues that are contained in this volume set, I thought: "cool, a three parter staring batman and the Riddler! what more could you ask for?" Well, for starters the Riddler. needless to say this was not what I expected it to be like.The Riddler is so out of character in these issues! its annoying. I have no idea w...

this is What I said a few months ago...I haven't (admittedly) read this, but thought this was a great cover.I have seen covers like this published in more recent years with illustrations of that publisher's other other current serieses (sort of a product placement), but this is the earliest occurance I have seen it.

Clever and fun! 0

I think this was my first introduction into the world of comics. I was given it at a library convention which had an assorted group of people (like comic con, but for libraries from all around the country). I got lots of books (including a signed book by Marc Brown..of the Arthur the aardvark series. even got to tell him how I was going to be a writer. He told me that maybe someday he would be waiting in line for one of my books), including this one.   I love the stories, perhaps because it is p...

Iffy 0

I want to start by saying this could have been worse. The animation quality is top notch (not like the Toy Story Movies, but better than the regular series following this pilot movie which began the Star Comand Show). I want to also point out I haven't seen many episodes of this show, so I have no idea if it is good or not (though the two I have checked out leave much to be desired what with their cheesiness).  This story takes one of the stars of Toy story and puts a back story to why (as a toy...

Indeed Sweet! 0

I must admit I haven't read any other Resurrection Man issues, so I have no idea whether this is just a highlight issue or what, but this was a really cool read.  The basic idea is clever (in fact I was thinking of writing a story about a killer with the same choice of weapon before I read this, but I digress). No one can no look at this cover and say it is not cool. I picked this up at a free comic book day when I was first started collecting comics (which was last year). It was in the older co...

Monty Python's flying circus 0

I have enjoyed this series. It is witty and charming. I love all the British humor (although some of the references are beyond me and my knowledge) and the creativeness of the writers. They really developed the characters into something more than just Batman's alternate counterparts. Jarvis Poker is such an amusing villain. I mean, when we first meet him, he worked as an ally of Knight and Squire. I really didn't think highly of the character because he was just a 2 dimensional character; undeve...

questionable 0

I bought this over the internet with something I was really interested, thinking, of course, that it would be a good read. Perhaps its just me and the fact that I don't really like stories from this time period as they are a bit grainy at best. I guess I prefer modern or really old wimsicle comics from the silver age. I just don't know. I like the cover. the inside art at times bugs me.  if it weren't for that I think I would like it.   I give it an 2.5 of of 5, because it did have a good plot a...

Fun for the whole family! 0

This was a fun movie. It combined my two favorite genres Mystery and Comedy (is that even a genre?). While wacky, it really imbodys some of the older pulp-gumshoe detectives like Archie Goodwin/Nero Wolfe, but allows room for the less mature section of the crowd (the Pennut Gallery for us older viewers) to enjoy it as well. It has also cameos from cartoons which some of us will remember and others will soon learn to love.  a sweet classic. come, watch, enjoy...

He's back! 0

I loved this movie! It had a wonderful and incredible story, and influences of both the normal Animated series and the Beyond series. I liked all the dialog. They introduced all the character in a way that even if you had not seen either series you would know how it happened and who people were. I liked how got Joker back. It made the plot even more thrilling to know that it wasn't exactly the Joker himself, but someone entirely different. Also, you also get to see on of the few times in which B...

A riddle with a Riddler 0

This was one of those stand alone stories which You just love. It was fun with Joker narrating the whole story, making it an interesting perspective to say the least. I loved the art. It was really well done (does anyone else think that the Riddler on page 2 looks like the Batman: animated series Riddler?). I liked the story. It was a bit simple, but when you look over it there are hidden clues and cultureal refrences. If you look at pages you can find the Beetles, Shakespeare, a Magritte painti...

one of those great stories 0

This has to one of the best stories in Batman lore (minus the original Mr. B's, of course). This combines the legend of Batman with a new age full of technology, ideas and consects. I like this movie (or Episode as it was) because it presents Batman in an entirely different light. It shows that no matter what age you are in, there will always be a Batman. I liked how the creators of this show made a gang based on the classic idea of what the Joker stood for: crazness, jokes and of course the cr...

This Movie was alright. For anyone who has not seen the Rocky and his Friends/Bullwinkle show (which everyone should) this would be funny and just wacky. For people, myself, who have seen Rocky and Bullwinkle, the movie was alright. I sort of picture this movie as a alternate Jay Ward world where love can happen and explanations can be inserted into the program. I was sort of bummed that the actors did not keep with the Pottsylvanian (Rushian-spoffed) accents. With that said, I must give it cred...
