Guess who set the world ablaze...? Supermen. 0

We are hell-bent on building things to worship, we are driven to, we are hardwired to do so. Throw supermen able to fly, sharp dialogue and politics (which are, essential in the plot) into the mix and there you go, SUPERGOD. A brand-new series by "godhead" Warren Ellis, a man that does not sleep, he just goes "stand by" while he's wired to an ever-changing (and ever-growing) super-computer network that produced what might be one of the best post-apocalyptic tales involving superheroes of all tim...

Go pick it up, it's an order! 0

I got excited when I read the preview for the very first issue, most of you know my taste in comics and my opinions about series spinning out of events, but there's SOMETHING about Dark Avengers Ares that's just gorgeous (as in: Look! It's your over-the-top propaganda comic! Which has ARES HIMSELF talking to the troops, George S. Patton-like, as a big-ass USA flag decorates the dang background). Kieron Gillen is carving himself a seat in the "pantheon" of "great comic book writers", with the lik...

Twilight of the Superheroes, continues... 0

Sky City is in ruins, The Plutonian did it. After all, he just went rogue, right? This issue kicks-off with the story of one of his former allies (the girl you see in the cover), named Kaidan. And one of her (at least from my point of view) very first jobs as an enforcer of justice, which doesn't go too smoothly and she ends up being rescued by The Plutonian, who resembles a silver age Superman (by this point this shouldn't be a surprise) and demonstrates Waid's bond to the comic book genre and ...

Crank-like! 0

I was totally hooked when I saw a plot summary on Marvel's official page. Didn't know this guy was a reinvention of an old character called Mighty Destroyer (who makes a cameo in the second issue). In addition, I didn't even know that Robert Kirkman, one of my favorite writers, was on board. Plus, the MAX thingy on the cover makes me wanna check it out immediatly. Keene Marlowe is your old warhorse dying hero who's trying to take all the f@#s that make this world a dangerous place for every sing...

Collision course! 0

Zack Overkill is in trouble, yes he is. Ava Destruction, the girl that you can see in the cover is after him (she had a affair or something like that), apparently, she ran off the reservation she was in to look for him because one of the infamous Overkill Brothers is officially running amok on the streets beating thugs and rescuing girls in the dark, crooked alleys of the city! They even send a couple of whackos to execute a job that might shatter the current status quo!The universe that Ed Brub...

Drenched in good ol' VIOLENCE! 0

The upcoming game looks great, but I cannot deny the greatness of this book, it's just SO GOOD that I can't wait for the next issue to be released. The back story of the series (which is also the game's I think) is pretty interesting. The first pages being set in the Vietnam conflict with a unit of G.Is storming the jungle, the main character's name (at least in this story) is Peter Randall, a bad-ass lieutenant who is tough-as-nails and an enemy of the ever-dangerous communists, who is facing t...

Noir awesomeness 0

So far, i've liked the take on the established Marvel characters in that noir, brooding setting. Being my current favorite Daredevil and his hell's kitchen exploits, Wolverine: Noir is slowly pushing his way to the top though. His back story is very interesting, trained by a crazy irishman who traveled to Japan and brought the art of the knives and swords with him, James Logan trained with him, learned the craft and nailed the very nature of the art so you could say that's his superpower (I thin...

Their final stand... 0

I've been following this series for months. Not really for a decade, but the Minutemen and the whole cast of characters had been growing on me since the first issue. This is a great example of what a modern pulp epic should be. This book shall be remembered as one of the greatest (and longest) ongoing series of all-time. I knew that the ending would be something astounding, and the final twist of the plot was going to be something I wouldn't forget, at least not easily. I will really miss Cole, ...

What makes a hero Irredeemable? 0

I was really looking forward to read this series, it was SO WORTH the wait. Thank you, Mark Waid. Okay, so after i saw a sneak peek, like, 2 months ago i was hyped as hell. Now that i've read the very first issue i'll totally recommend it without a second thought. The artwork by Peter Krause is really great, it brings to life Waid's story to the letter. It tells the tragic story of earth's mightiest superhero, a guy called The Plutonian (pretty much a Superman-based character, given Waid's love ...

Goldie... She says her name's Goldie... 0

There's no wonder why this story arc became pretty famous after the Sin City movie premiered in 2005. Mickey Rourke portrayed Marv in a great way, a man who didn't stop his search for the men who killed Goldie, even in the face of impending doom. Some people complain about Frank Miller's artwork, which i love, because it helps to set the mood of the book. A noir epic of romance, death and redemption. I'm sure a lot of people has already heard about Miller's run on Sin City. Back in the 90s when ...

Pure PULP-awe. 0

I read this series after the movie came out and found what the past of Dwight was like. First of all, he's a great character. By far, one of the greatest in the Sin City Universe. He roams the streets of Basin City a broken man, taking pictures of sordid happenings in town. We get to see he's kind of sad because of a woman (women...) Named Ava. Who's a runaway girl that ended up living with a rich man in the outskirts of the city. Then Dwight meets her in a bar and they have a noir-esque convers...

Elseworlds Project #3 0

The first Elseworlds ever. Brian Augustyn had wrote the script and (the one and only) Mike Mignola did an amazing work in the pencils, the tale is set in 1880, in the Victorian era where Jack The Ripper is srtiking terror in the hearts of the population. Bruce Wayne decides to go after the serial killer dressed as a giant bat, that looks as post-goth and dark as this issue gets... The panels are eye-candy, as mignola shows what he's capable of in the story that pretty much had set-up the basics ...

Elseworlds Project #2 0

The Devil's Workshop, an Elseworlds written by Howard Chaykin and illustrated by Mark Chiarello, is a tale about a "darker than ever" Batman and the famous magician Harry Houdini the cover is pretty much perfect and speak for itself, if you know at least a bit about the history of magic in the 19th or the early 20th century this is a perfect example. The artwork is great, mysterious and amazing, photograph-like that fits the batman like a glove. Also, we get to see the hilarious team-up of the s...

"When dark forces seek to destroy the shining place known as camelot... And a mysterious knight, born of magic and garbed as a bat, seeks vengeance... And JUSTICE."I'll be doing elseworlds reviews for this whole month. I've read quite a lot of them and i decided to stand up and let ya know about them too...

Bloody Good! 0

I decided to pick Scab quite a while after i finished the Holiday Special. I wanted to experience the work of Peter Milligan. I had read some a'his work in Human Target (Vertigo) And such, but i did not know SCAB was this friggin' good. I should start giving Hellblazer my two cents every month. I love the pacing skills of Mr. Milligan and the art of Guiseppe Camuncoli. Although it's not that scary, it suits the mood of the story. I liked the fact that John has a new girlfriend, she's bloody gorg...

Iron Man's finally on the 21st century! 0

I read this series a long time ago but it's still fresh on my mind, like i had finished it just yesterday. I was frigging surprised while i was reading it, i mean, Iron Man has always been a cool character, but he absolutely had NO LUCK when it comes down to artwork, his costume looked, so, so lame. but that was just what Warren Ellis and Adi Granov came in for: CHANGE. His costume did look as an armor. Something practical, functional, robot-like... Some artists still make the same mistake with ...

The definitive series of this decade. 0

I reviewed The Ultimates quite a while ago, but i don't know why i didn't stopped to review the second series, anyways, behold! The Ultimates 2 in a cinema-like review, by TwilightThunder... Some people complain about the lateness of the book, some others complain about the tone of this series and some other didn't understand this thing at all. First of all, if you're a "616" Hard-core fan you're not going to like the whole thing, it's like reading The Authority for god's sake! This is a brand-n...

I want more a' The Darkness damnit! 0

I was pleased when i finished this One-Shot, although i bought it in quite a high price: 24 bs, i usually get them at 13 bs but i did pay for it because i thought it was worthy (i was aware of the 3.99$ price). And god be my witness, i was friggin' right. Rob Levin and Michael Broussard are the hell of a creative team, however, this tale wasn't about Jackie Estacado but his cleaner... Butcher Joyce. It kicks-off with solid captions of Butcher, introducing himself to the readers while he's shown ...

A fast-paced high-octane ride! 0

I haven't finished this series but let me tell you something, i just friggin' love it. Jock's art absolutely brings Andy Diggle's great script to life. While paying a well-deserved tribute to the good ol' Losers' DC used to publish. it got cancelled after the earth-shattering events on Crisis on Infinite Earths. This brand-new take on  the Losers puts them as the hard-boiled, relentless and daredevilish team we'd likely see starring this sort of series, they got betrayed by those that employed t...

The Barracuda... Enough said. 0

"He’s big, he’s mean, and the last thing on earth you want is to see him smile." As my fellow user The Outsider said, The Barracuda is one a' the worst (if not the worst) villains The Punisher is to face in his MAX series. This arc is pretty special due to the fact that's not really a "street-level" Vendetta, but a corporative scandal sorta thing. A company is planning the greatest scam of the century while eliminating any possible threats using The Barracuda, Frank is set to fight one hell of a...

Is not as gory as you think it is. It's SICK GORY. 0

Slavery... Human trafficking, whatever name you're likely to call it is a crime and Punisher is hell-bent on slaughtering them slavers!!! He just found a girl who barely managed to escape from her pimps and is looking desperately for protection, enter: Frank Castle. but instead of taking her with him he pitches her over a lady that works for women's rights or something like that (or was it the immigration office?) Anyways, he's clearly on a mission and he cannot be interrupted, these guys need h...

Epic arc. seriously. 0

Hats off for Ennis script on this whole arc, it pretty much fits my definition of "black-humored epic" It kicks off with Punisher being sent to russia to finish some bussiness there, he knows this russian general called "the man of stone" Is out there and is probably anxious to lay his hands on Frank who has a task to complete that involves a nuclear silo that will likely end with losta' bullets all over the place. Also, enter: Nick Fury, the "spy supreme" of the marvel universe. Ennis wrote one...

I'll start reviewing MAX stuff from this day on! 0

My late review of Punisher MAX was just plain awful, i don't know if i really wrote it, probably i was sleepy or something, anyways i'll start reviewing this great series again, one issue per arc, as i read almost alla them. In this arc, titled Kitchen Irish you might know what to expect from Ennis. Punisher is having dinner in a nice cafe when suddenly a bomb explodes and takes a good chunk a' the block with it, Frankie manages to survive the blast as the police start swarming the place looking...

Tooth N' Claw! 0

This new series pays a direct homage to the old series and at the same time adds a brand-new take on werewolves, i thought there's not so much you can do with a werewolf unless you set the tale in a Dark Ages setting or something, but this guy, Duane Swierczynski did pull off something i expected to be quite redundant. We have the "on the run" Tale with the lead chracter called Jack Russell (nice homage to the old character) Fighting back his disease, a blood-thirsty monster that will stop at no...

my first 3 star review, why? You're about to know. 0

I don't hate this book, nor i love it, i just "like it" I'm not the type, comic books for me are meant as a form of literature, read my reviews and all that you'll see is pure greatness. Brian Bendis, the mainstream writer of the century (he'll get as overrated as Jeph Loeb) Now takes us in a mistery-plagued ride called Dark Avengers (this name is just... Lame...) One of the main books of the Dark Reign storyline, so far, so good, i like big events (Do i?) when you get to see real change (take t...

I was lucky enough to buy the first and second issue when i saw them quite a while ago... Then a friend told me that he had found a guy who had lots of issues at a fair price and i rushed there and bought quite a few (there's still some a' them left) And so, i learned to love Jonah Hex...

Bought it yesterday, what a good comic book! 0

I ended up buying this instead of 6 or 5 issues of Jonah Hex. (but that's another story) I really enjoyed it, the artwork by Duke Mighten is really great, weird, but great, also the script by Pat Mills is also great, a friend told me he's a horror-genre writer and that's what this book is about, a secret society in gotham city whose plans are being screwed up by Bruce, so, they send their goons in order to get rid of the annoying Batman, but it seems our Bruce isn't willing to go down with a fig...

"The secret ingredient is PULP" Ed Brubaker 0

These guys' work gotta be one of my main inspirations in the comic medium, and they haven't let me down since i started to buy anything with their name's on it, from Gotham Noir to Incognito. They've proven themselves worthy, winning almost every major award in comics, they gotta be at least "cool", Right? Brubaker and Phillips are known for-street level epic stories, and Incognito it's just one of those (think of guy Ritchie on RockNRolla, Snarch and Lock., Stock and Two smoking barrels). It's ...

One the best covers i've ever seen, and also, a GREAT tale. 0

Planetary should be kind of "essential" Reading for those who're looking for an alternative reading in a comic book medium filled with useless crossovers and maxi-series, despite his length (26 issues) Planetary offers a nice vision of the world as we know it, it's full of secrets, myths and legends that are surprisingly true, and it's up to our stars, Jakita, Drummer and Elijah to unravel the secrets of this mad, mad world. Superbly written by Warren Ellis and drawn by the "one and only" John "...

The first flight of the phantom eagle! 0

I read this series quite a while ago and i really enjoyed it, i'm not too fond of Howard Chaykin's art, but Ennis' Scripture it's totally worth your while, even if you're not a "World War" Enthusiast, this book isn't about heroic deeds during the war but about how horrible and cruel was is. Karl Kaufmann is an idealist, a man who puts a white cloth over his helmet to get recognition from his enemies and allies but soon he will realize that war isn't as "plain" As he imagined, he starts experienc...

What a good conclusion! 0

If you were a fan of Ennis' Run on Punisher in the Marvel Knights line, then read this arc, if not, you shouldn't really bother about it, because there ain't no serious talking nor murder here it's just over-the-top, cheese, or-whatever-name-you're-gonna-put-to-it, the whole thing of the Ressurrection of Ma Gnucci it's just crazy, you won't believe your eyes, this guy Ennis...

I fell for this series when i saw an article about it on the image official site, but it mas mandatory for me to read it when i saw who were involved on it. Ennis/Palmiotti, a couple of crazy guys i've been reading on Jonah Hex current series and Punisher MAX.

Ennis & Dillon = Pwnage 0

I loved Ennis run on Punisher: MAX, and i also loved his run on the Marvel Knights line, though it wasn't as violent, gritty and realistic as his MAX conterpart. Ennis ands Dillon did a GREAT JOB in their vertigo bestseller, Preacher and now we get to see them again in this limited series called "The Resurrection of Ma Gnucci" I was one of the few asking "WTF?" As i started to read, you might know that Ma Gnucci was killed by Frank in one of the most awesome executions i've ever seen, now. Word ...

Weird ending, yet, amazing. 0

This is regarded as a milestone in the comicdom, due to it's "date-wise" Improved style of inking, coloring and printing, i read it sometime ago but i still remember clearly those panels, Mad Max-like, decadent yet heroic, Frank Miller knew what he was doing back in those days (now he just sucks) DC published some real stuff back in the 80s when Julius Schwartz was the VP editor-in-chief. Ronin is quite long and dense, immersive due to it's drawing style, Lynn Varley was in tip-top shape when sh...

Amazing! Shocking! Astounding! And cinema-like reviewed, Twilight Thunder proudly presents his spectacular 25th review!This issue is as special as my 25th review (this means a lot to me, seriously) Because it's written and drawn by the best of the best, people who had previously offered their vision of Alan Moore's "bleeding british" Paranormal investigator, as they say in the synopsis of the book, always-naughty, never-nice John Constantine.

Even though i'm not a fan of vampiric action (which i've never considered action... Drama will probably do) I do cherish this piece of work, it's edited by genius Denny O'Neil and superbly written by Doug Moench, this guy knows how to create an extemely believable version of a Bruce Wayne who feels his own body succumbing to a new addiction, blood-driven after a woman named Tanya appeared several times in his sleep and did bite him. This was sort a ritual and they were bound by something larger ...

Featuring Miller's witty script and Geof Darrow's Art, Hard Boiled pushes it's way onto the comic book scene with a vengeance. This piece of artwork it's a comtemporary classic, the artwork is amazing, nonetheless crazy and sometimes confusing (this guy knows how to fill the panels, that's for damn sure) And the script is nothing short of astonishing, Nixon's fighting style reminds me those of Gun Fu hong kong action cinema films, just without the fluency and coreographed greatness but with the ...

It's absolutely amazing, noir from begginning to end and absolutely mysterious, pope is also a great writer, he's just one of those "magicians" who can pull off action sequences that look really like action sequences and not just "posing" thro...
