Step Aside Daredevil, there is a new lawyer in town. 1

As much As I love Hulk, I've never really been compelled to pick up a she Hulk series. Sure, I've seen her in team centered titles as well as in other forms of media, but I've never really felt I was interested in her, I respected and knew her character through the Hulk which I guess is enough on it's own but aside from that nothing. I thought about picking her previous series up but I decided not to in light of Dan Slotts( the writer of the previous she hulk ongoing) current activities. So whe...

Danger 0

Three reviews with five star ratings, how does one really manage that? Honestly, This is probably one of my favorite newly launched marvel titles. While the comic might be uneventful action wise, it still has a lot of content story wise, which is fine with me, because good action in all reality needs good development.Peter David's main key factor to success has always been two main things: Dialogue and characterization. Even when the story is simply flowing towards a general direction these two...

THIS is superman, THE Superman 4

You know, there are certain characters Greg Pak can really click with, and when he does his writing instantly becomes top notch. While Superman/Batman is basically a cinematic treatment of two characters fighting very powerful foes and lacks in writing substance, here we get a taste of what superman truly represents, a noble, kind-hearted protector, and I'm glad that Pak has embraced these concepts completely. I think it's logical to start with supermans characterization because most of his tit...

Roy "Rage" Harper 0

Arrow might be a good show from a long term perspective, but that doesn't change the fact that some episodes are extremity mediocre and poorly done, and this weeks installment would be a good example of that. What's absolutely baffling for me is the fact that most of the mediocre episodes really have good premises, it's just that the execution and decisions made to finally make it are sometimes rushed and in all honesty dumb. I'm sure by now most of you are familiar with the premise, but still l...

Holy F*ck Indeed 0

Invincible is honestly one of the titles in which a lot of action takes place, two superhumans battling and punching each other is a regular thing in this series, and I'm sure going back to some of the previous issues you wouldn't be surprised as to why this is the case. But invincible isn't really just people slaughtering each other,(well, it has a A lot of that as well) but really it's a well written book with a lot of twists and turns, and this issue is not an exception to that rule.Let me m...

Don't call me nuke? 4

I've said this before, and I'll say it as many times as I have to, Rick Remender is not fit to write established characters, not at Marvel, nor at DC. Why? Because as I've probably mentioned countless times in my reviews and on many different discussion threads, Rick has a bad habit which he for some reason cannot get rid off. I've been patient with this series, sometimes it's good, sometimes it just flat out pisses me off. When I started reading the issue it was well and good, I though the cha...

On, Nothing I couldn't Handle.. 1

It's times like these that I am reminded of as to why I'm glad that Marvel is relaunching some of the titles, because in all honesty I wouldn't have been able to catch up to davids work other wise which would have been a real shame because he is a great writer, as I've probably mentioned, many times, in my previous reviews. Moving on...PAD really makes sure that you understand what's going on in the issue by formulating the dialogue in a way in which allows these explanations to be planted int...

Absence of Anger 15

You know I've defended this title for a long time, and I have to say that it is well written, but it's not really enough, because if there is one thing I hate, it is being mislead. I'm fine with Bruce Banner taking charge of his life, considering that he'll be technically dispatched off as Hulk launches in April, but if the previews say that Hulks going to fight, then I'm looking forward to Hulk fighting, because it's what the issues indicates. While the concept of the bomb not working was inte...

And I though I was Crazy! 12

Thor God of Thunder has been a great title with a couple of minor bumps, but it doesn't change that fact that I loved this ending. This is where I usually get worried when it comes to Jason Aaron, he is not especially good with endings, because he usually leaves a lot of unanswered questions, but I'm glad that this was not the case, the ending wrapped up nicely and while it's not as good as the first arc it's definitely still great. The first thing most people will notice will be the fact that ...

Enter the Rider 1

If you've been keeping up with my reviews it won't be news to you that I've been very skeptical about this title for a long time, mainly because it has been complete crap from the beginning, however, the arrival of Charles soule gave me hope that things will improve, and luckily, they did. But mere improvement wasn't enough, the damage had been done and it wasn't easy to get back on track because Charles soule had to set many things right. The issues following after Ways run were mediocre at be...

Only One way to find out. 15

I'll be completely honest here for a second, despite my love for peter davids writing I've never felt compelled to read X-factor. It's true that I've considered it a couple of times, but I never cared for any of the characters and quite frankly the series was too far gone issue count wise and I didn't have the time to read it. This is a fresh opportunity to jump back and read what Peter David has in store for us. Now I don't really now much about Gambit, Larna, etc. What I'm trying to say is th...

Game Over 7

I knew that reviewing this issue by issue wasn't really an option, because some of the events that take place here at times really looked bad and I knew that I had to wait until the end to make my final decision about it, and that's pretty much what I did. I needed things to be finally explained and Greg pak didn't disappoint in that aspect.Now I can't really go into this review without mentioning one specific thing: This arc wasn't specifically meant to deliver anything mind blowing, it was s...

Grammatically Questionable! 3

Taking a good look at larfleeze, one would really think that he doesn't really deserve a series of his own? But with one dimensional characters a writer has a lot of freedom to add layers to this specific characters background and personality. Last issue we've received some pretty interesting revelations about Larfsleezes character, which made clear to me that there was more to him than meets the eye.I'd like to start by saying that even if the story lacked any depth to it I would have still enj...

League of Fools 0

Thor has been for me one of the best series Marvel has to offer, it's fun, it's gory, and it's everything you'd expect a Thor book to be, it has some rough bumps but in all honesty in the long run, they have been meaningless. The tone is slightly less dark then it was in the first arc, but the writing pattern is basically the same. I'm loving the fact that Jason Aaron is focusing more on the political side of things, siting where one must and mustn't go in order to avoid War and general violenc...

Ego 5

If you've been following me around, you'd have noticed that I've shown a great dislike towards how the last agent of time arc concluded, it seems like a waste of potential above anything else, so I was hoping that maybe this new issue could have regained that spark waid had at the beginning of his run, which gladly is exactly what had happened. This is one heck of an issue, and it excites me greatly.Firstly, I had previously stated how much I disliked the change in character, specifically for ...

The Leader Is back...sort of... 6

I've been on the edge with this damn series for a long time, Danial way has destroyed one of my favorite characters and I actually thought that I'd never get to see him as the a cool villain he once was, luckily I was wrong. Charles soule, while he has some specific bumps, managed to restore my hope that maybe there is a chance this series could become better with time. I've been ranting about how Leader had become a spineless whelp with no motivation or confidence, and what's worse is that th...

Nuke em'! 16

You know it really saddens me that Rick didn't start with this arc, because Dimension Z was seriously weak as a story arc, and despite his abysmal writing on uncanny avengers this new arc of captain america was actually fairly strong, a bit overstretched but nonetheless enjoyable ,I have some gripes, but it was a solid read IMO.First and foremost my main interest is directed towards this new interesting villain Ricks been developing called the Iron nail, who's main goal is to oppose the america...

Promising Start 2

I've been really looking forward to this, Indestructible has become a hit or miss for me, and despite the fact that i'm excited for the next arc I still feel slightly skeptic about it to be completely honest. This mini-series holds a lot of opportunities since it's not really canon, therefore the author has a lot of freedom in doing what he wants to do. I'll just say this right of the bat, the premise of the story seems very intriguing, it would never have occurred to me to place Banner in a Pa...

Not quite a Monster 0

You know when you read the writing style of ONE author you definitely begin to see a specific pattern. This issue didn't need a name tag for me to realize that Greg Pak was writing, because the style and tone is increasingly familiar to me. I've seen this before, and I love it. It's the same raw emotion and action he showed off when he was writing Hercules or Hulk back at Marvel. The story doesn't really have much to it considering that it simply serves as a filler to provide a couple of plot-p...

Incredible! 3

I've been interested in what this one shot had to offer, considering that Jeff Parker didn't give many interviews nor did he really talk about this issue that much. Jeff Parker is a very talented writer, and having just finished reading this, I can safely say that I loved this small annual. It had everything one would expect for an one-shot to have. I've been slightly disappointed with Mark Waids last indestructible Hulk and his new inhumanity arc as merely just begun so it was nice to take a ...

Larfleeze the Traitor 0

I've never been a Green Lantern fan to be honest, they always seemed cool and all but I have never been urged to pick up a green lantern book since I consider Hal to be slightly annoying, and stewart to be slightly boring ( don't get me wrong, I'm not dissing on the characters, I'm simply saying that Personal preference wise, they do not really interest me). I wanted to read more on the Red Lanterns because to me utilizing rage was much more interesting than will-power, but due to the fact that...

Never Gonna Let You Down. 4

I've been on the fence with Indestructible Hulk because of the last arc, I wasn't planning to stop reading the series but my expectations have been lowered, still, I'm fairly interested in this new arc as it'll be tied to both banner and The Hulk in some interesting way, not to mention that It promises to explore one of the Banner's assistants which is always cool.The story itself is just simply a prelude to what is going to happen further into the arc, but still, I'm sure it did a good job of ...

Guess It Wasn't Really Time To Smash. 1

I've defended this arc from the very beginning, because it in all honesty it was a very well written,energetic, and fun story with hulk traveling around time and smashing things, so even by premise it was very interesting, And after I saw the events of the previous issue, I was extremity excited simply because it held so much potential. This is the ending installment to a cool story, and I have to say that I was disappointed. It wasn't bad, but it could have been something much greater.First of ...

The True Malekith! 0

After last weeks disappointing issue, I was worried that this arc might go down hill pretty quickly. The reason for this is the fact that stories such as this one have potential to become very repetitive, meaning that it rehashes the same formula over and over again. Jason Aaron has done something like this before ( incredible Hulk comes to mind), so I was hoping that this wasn't the case and that improvement would follow soon. I'm very happy to say that I immensely enjoyed this issue.The beginn...

It's Not a Dark World At All 19

Thor: The Dark WorldI'll admit, I have been seriously been looking forward to this movie for some time now, I enjoyed thor one even though I had some problems with it, and it's still one of marvels good movies. Usually, when I watch something, I always give the movie time to have a lasting impression on me, but today, I was absolutely sure that I didn't like Thor:The Dark World. Maybe saying I didn't like it is a bit of an overstatement as I will watch it again for the entertainment, but other t...

Yeah Yeah, I Get It, "Our Boys!" 0

I've been in a verge to drop this series for some time now because frankly I'm not liking much of what is going on here, and while I did rate the previous issue highly, it still doesn't change what had been done for the previous 11 installments, but I can say that this issue managed to at least pull me back in, least for a little while. Nuke interests me, and as someone who has never read up on him he seems like a good villain to captain america.The Iron nail seems like a cool villain to me, a f...

Force of Nature. 6

After waiting for what seemed like eternity, Greg paks Action Comics 25 has finely arrived, and I cannot be more happy. I have to admit though, despite my "fanboism" I was skeptical about this slightly, considering that Paks young superman was a little rough for my taste, but after reading this I cannot be happier. Action Comics 25 has almost everything a superman story needs, which is all a fan can ask for.At first I was really worried that clark would be full of rage as he was in the first arc...

Unique Idea 10

I've been looking for a good monster series for quite sometime now, so having found a new Vampire related series, one which doesn't require any previous knowledge or research is a real treat for me. I'll have to say that for the first issue, this was really well written.When reading this, It's important to consider that there had been numerous vampire-related series before, and not only that, the concept of vampires has been used in many forms of media before, such Books, movies, and videogames....

It's Not Good, It Ain't Bad, But It's Ugly. 2

"Venom" has been one of my personal favorite series from Marvel, It wasn't perfect, and it wasn't anything out of the ordinary either. It was simply tale of a guy trying to control a monster inside of him, a story of a hero who tried to follow the footsteps of his hero while ending up going in a different direction. Long story short, it was a good, consistent series which had a lot of fun moments, and I had hoped that it would have had a good, or at least a fulfilling ending, however, it failed ...

Like Sticking Your Head In a Blender.. 4

I swear each time I get my hopes up that this comic book will somehow improve, it really proves me wrong. Ever since Charles Soule took over, I had hope that maybe these characters would improve, and so would the story. I've seen Charles write, and it's pretty damn good, but due to the series being a disaster already, there is not much possibility of salvaging anything good from it any longer. It's supposed to be fun, but that doesn't mean that It can't have a decent story and characterization.u...

What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger! 3

Indestructible Hulk is easily My personal favorite series, and this issue hasn't changed my mind towards it, no; it has in fact made me like it even more. The thing is, the concept of the whole time travel arc is actually silly in general, because with Time Travel there comes a lot of inconsistencies and mistakes. However what Waid manages to so here, is grasp the fact that a time arc such as this can be very interesting with a character like the Hulk, therefore he utilizes these concepts almos...

Fitting Conclusion. 3

When I first read the conclusion, despite my anticipation, I'll admit i was slightly disappointed, because while I liked the issue overall, there were a few things about the story which I really disliked, But after reading or watching something, I wait before expressing my thoughts because it's necessary for the comic to have an appropriate influence on me. After analyzing this issue, i realized what pak had actually done, and then i realized how much i love this ending, because it all made sens...

Endless Disappointment 11

I've been indifferent to most of the avenger related titles from "Marvel NOW!" for quite some time now, so having Warren Ellis as the writer of a singular novel relating to the avengers was a real treat for me, especially since it had an interesting plot right of the bat, but after reading this, i have to say that this was a major disappointment for me. I expected so much more and it just blew up in my face, in fact, I'm usually skeptical when reading something like this, unless of course i'm s...

Apologize To The Hammer 9

I've been looking forward to this arc, more so than the last one, But i have to say, that despite every issue having redeemable along with being consistently good, this was by far the weakest issue in the whole series. The idea to me of Thor chasing Malekith around the nine realms is amazing and awesome, but again, everything could be good in concept, but if not executed well....this is the result we get. Now don't get me wrong, i still have hopes for this series as ONE bad issue doesn't mean mu...

A Nail Forged In Iron 4

I've stated on numerous threads that I dislike captain Americas current series. It seemed to have gotten worse after the wonderful issue 6 and just rotted both in writing and Art. However, with the opening to a new arc, where captain america seems to be back in his old element( NOTE: I liked the Idea of traveling into another word, i just didn't like the execution), i was hoping that'd there would be room for improvements, and lucky, things got better.I'm very glad that Romita is off the book, b...

Not Too Old 19

I'll be honest for a second, I at first, was really skeptical about reading this, Miller has had good stories, but he usually goes overboard with the Level of violence and vulgarity, and from what I've seen about this particular tale, is that his hulk just simply deviates from the characters core (i'll address that later during the review), but i decided that judging something i haven't read is not fair really, so i decided to give it a chance, plus Millar can be great when he really wants to be...
