All New Review #10 0

Reviewing a new issue of All New X-men is tough since how each issue that comes out feels exactly the same as the last- which is a whole lot of talking and very little progression. Issue 10 continues the trend but with underwhelming results.Basically Cyclops comes to the jean grey school to seek for applicants, Wolverine, Kitty and a few others argue with him...and that's it. Oh, and Mystique's group rob some banks, however because those panels are undercut by the soap-opera drama later betwee...

All-New Review 0

All New X-men continues to struggle with its sloooooooow pacing, as it becomes more apparent that Bendis wants the focus of ANX to be on interaction between the original five and the present day world of their older counterparts than focusing on an equal focus on plot and character. You have heard in many reviews of how Bendis has a knack for dialogue and creating nice moments, and that continues here from Beast's perspective on the importance for why the original five are really here- when tell...

Uncanny Review ( Spoiler) 0

As I have said before, I am really not a fan of the current status quo of the x-men, even though I have been enjoying All-New X-men as of late. I am just not interested in reading Scott as this super-aggressive freedom fighter who throws up gang signs and does not hesitate to blow up police stations. I am not interested in reading a Wolverine that has become the new Professor X and has a grudge against Scott even though before Schism he supported said that he would follow Scott to the gates of h...

Death of the relationship (Spoilers) 0

Batman and the Joker have the greatest super-hero and super-villain dynamic of all time. When written by a great writer, their dynamic and banter between each other can be masterful and incredibly engaging. Scott Snyder has proven this with Death Of The Family, which as of the last issue of this arc, I hearby declare this to be one of the greatest Batman/Joker stories of all time.For months we were speculating: What was in Joker’s tray? Does he really know Batman’s identity? We get our answers i...

We are young 0

This comic immediately got my attention when I saw the variant cover drawn by Scott Pilgrim creator, Bryan Lee O' Malley. Kieron Gillen has been placed in charge of relaunching the Young Avengers- bringing in some new life into it with a mix of old and new faces, "music video" fights, and some modern love. From the first six pages you can already tell that you are experiencing something completely worthwhile.This title oozes with style and delivers a perfect blend of light-heartedness, energy, a...

Rest In Peace Parker...until your new movie comes out. 0

Do you remember when Ultimate Peter Parker died? Do remember how well done and emotional it was? We may not have wanted Pete to die, but at the very least it was done with respect and actually had some intensity and solid art to it. ASM 700 has neither. As a matter of fact, the main problem with the conclusion of this issue is the fact that we have already experienced the death of Peter Parker before. So to witness Peter die again, albeit in the core marvel universe, just feels like a desperate ...

Cyclops vs Cyclops 0

I will start off to say that All New X-men # 4 is without a doubt the best issue so far, and its also the first issue I can honestly say is " good". Not" eh, it was good" but actually saying that its legitimately good. While the first interaction between teen scott and present scott is short lived, it does not disappoint: Present Cyclop's inner thoughts are a perfect combination of confusion, paranoia and shock, Iceman's funny reaction to a Magneto who is not as ruthless and relentless towards t...

All New X-Review ( Spoilers) 0

Synopsis: Cyclops begins his revolutionary march now with the reveal of the new xavier school and the reappearance of a past member of the extinction team. Are they still the same team as they were before?What I Liked: Stuarts' artwork continues to be astonishing. His use of coloring and drawings of the x-characters gives the book a different feel than other current x-books. The last panel of this issue looks absolutley beautiful. I appreciate that Bendis reminds us that not everyone hates or is...

Good kissers and a cold 0

Rogue and Black Widow band together to take down a sentinel while Kitty Pryde and Iron Man fight some Brood. Pretty much it for a synopsis, bro.What I Liked:I honestly liked Bachalos' art for the most part in the first story. His backgrounds are nicely detailed and inked, and I thought he did a good job writing and drawing Rogue.After reading both stories, I wanted more of Kitty/Iron Man and Black Widow/Rogue. The two characters played off well with each other and the dialogue between them was g...

All-New X-men is all not too good (spoilers) 0

There has been a lot of dread over Bendis writing X-men, mainly since his run on ultimate x-men and was pretty crappy and his recent run on Avengers was incredibly hit-or-miss. While I am really not happy with the state that the x-men are in right now, I still held hope that All-New -X-men could give me some hope for the franchise. Sadly it did not.Granted this is the first issue, but what I got from this issue is that Bendis cannot write every x-character efficiently. The issue started off stro...

Uncanny Avengers NOW! 0

You have already read the plot summary when you clicked on this page or from the previews. So lets just get to the point.GOOD: God damn i love Cassaday's art. His colors are so vibrant and detailed and his characters look astonishing. I also am looking forward to see Havok in this series. He has much potential, and i am seeing how Reminder can tackle his positioning into the role of leadership. I really dig the premise for the first story arc for this series- Red Skull planing to eradicate the m...

No more AVX ( possible spoilers) 0

Well my friends, this is the end. Avengers vs X-men finally ends with issue 12, and the ending is just as predictable as the ''shocking death'' from last issue. I am not just saying that to be smart. Everything you could guess of what will happen in the end is pretty much accurate- Plot point 1 & 2 ( Hope and Wanda) make phoenix go bye-bye and give birth to a shit ton of mutants, Cyclops is defeated and taking into custody, Cap will start uncanny avengers and is still an out of character jer...

Or Sucker puch part 2 0

You know, for a title that is suppose to be the next big thing at marvel next to the relaunch, Captain Marvel thus far feels like just another ongoing book that is only getting hyped up simply because it has a female main protagonist. Which there is nothing wrong with that, but it would be nice if I had a sense of where this book is going or felt that there was something special about this book except for the art. I still do not have an idea what just happened at the end of this issue and honest...

Or Sucker Punch done right. 0

Rosie the Riveter (CM) finds herself in a strange world where the chicks from sucker punch are now badass soldiers fighting off mechs in a WW2 setting. What the hell is going on...i do not know. What i do know is that I could not read this without thinking to myself that this is what sucker punch should have been; badass women coming together to kick ass without the baggage of rape and all that other bullshit. It also helps that the art in this book is fucking amazing.My only gripes is that this...

From Phoenix with love 0

Out of all of the Phoenix Five, not much time has been spent on Colossus. I mean we see him fighting along side Scott and the others but never get his take on everything that has happened. More importantly, we never got a chanceto see how Kitty is adjusting to the fact that her former love is now a god- possibly corrupt. This issue delivers on everything you can hope for. The humor and great writing that has been watered down for the past few issues is back in full gear with 60% more bamfs. The ...

Kid gladiator vs the avengers (possible spoilers)ers 0

How can an issue featuring kid gladiator fighting the avengers be not cool!? Well leave it to Avengers Vs X-men to F#$% that up. What is more troubling is the fact that certain aspects of this issue do not make any sense. For one, and correct me if I had missed something, but in AvX 6 Beast left the avengers because what they were doing was, to put it in simplest terms, really stupid. So why is he fighting alongside them all of a sudden like nothing happened. It is also unsettling to see Hank fi...

The little B@#$% is back!! 0

GOOD: We are finally diving deep into Hit-girl's mind and past. It is really nice to see her try to adjust to normal life and back into the superhero business at the same time. I always enjoy seeing kick ass and hit-girl together and their scenes of dialogue in this issue were great. Speaking of which, the dialogue in this issue is an improvement from some of the issues. This is probably due to the fact that this is a character study of the most popular character of the series and this is the fi...

Kitty Pryde 2012 0

At long last, after the slow built up we are finally starting to see the X-men back into the spot light and ready to take action. Kitty pryde is the focus of this issue as she abandons her Shroud persona and is ready to fight for mutant kind and as shown, is not afraid to be a little aggressive about it. The inner monologues of Shadowcat are the best bits of dialogue in this issue as we see her struggle to see any hope that is left for both races while telling us her story into becoming the most...

All you need is Hope 0

AvX is still happening and you know what that means!! Another tie-in that is a more cohesive and satisfying read than the main title of the event. Set in the middle of issue 4 of AvX, Wolverine and Hope must survive against the death commandos, kid gladiator must decide whether or not he wants to stay and fight on earth, and Iceman starts to beat Red Thunderbolts ass. There is a lot to like ab out this issue. I am really glad we are back to the art style that actually fit the book, and the writi...

A not so epic conclusion to a not so epic run. 0

This is a slower book when compared to the past two issues, painfully slow. It focuses largely on Alex Summers and the folks that are looking for him, and that's about it. The United States was under attack and being destroyed by Nimrods. It's a little strange that those events are not even addressed here. Sure, we spend most of the issue in a mental institution, but it still feels weird that nobody is all that concerned. Nick Spencers run on Ultimate Comics X-men has overall been underwhelming....

Wedding of the year ( possible spoilers) 0

Another Wonder Woman issue of the new 52 that does not disappoint. In this issue we see the return of Strife, the revelation of both the ex wife of Hades, Persephone, the God of love Aphrodite, and we question whether not Wonder Woman is scheming against Hades or is really under the clutches of Hades. It is all freaking excellent. The writing continues to be top notch and the depiction of Hell continues to be creative. The art itself proved to work better here than it did in issue 6, more partic...

No words ( Spoilers) 0

I am going to say this upfront, do not go into this thinking its just an usual issue. It is not. There is absolutely no dialogue in this issue. What this issue achieves is granting the reader a symbolic summary of X-23's journey that can be interpreted by anyone who has follow the characters progress. That being said, while I think that this is a solid issue for people to talk about and for interpretations, this ultimately does feel like filler. If you are looking for a fitting conclusion to the...

Poor Rogue ( Spoilers!!) 0

After reading this issue two things came to mind; one was that Rogue cannot catch a break and two was that I think I am now starting to see what actually mattered about the schism. You see after Exodus's quick defeat early in the issue, I was treated to another round of " Our side is right and your path is flawed" discussion between Hope's team and Rogue's squad. Rogue stated that the point of their decision was not to keep kids from fighting but rather give them a chance to go back to basics- t...

Deadpool is the best part... review over 0

Pros: I found the dialog between Deadpool and Domino in the beginning to be pretty entertaining. Anytime you bring Deadpool with any of the X-men characters you have my attention for a bit.Cons: This whole X-men and vampire arc is pretty stupid. X-men and vampires just do not mix at all. It is even worse when the writing is cliched and boring to bloody hell. Example:"I hypothesized I could match the phase of my mist form to match yours, allowing me to confront you physically like this." Or, "I w...

Quire not a hero 0

The construct is falling apart, Wolverine is going berserker in the school, Rachel has a big booty for some reason? What will happened next?Pros: Much like Magneto: Not a hero, this mini series is a character study for Quentin Quire. It is not worrying about whether or not it fits within continuity and neither should you. You are only asked to enter the mind of Quentin Quire and go on this journey with him. The result is an understandable-to likeable- Quentin Quire who just wants to be noticed. ...

Ghost rider chick is a huge b@#$% 0

The Circle of Four arc concludes with this issue. In the end this event delivers a fun popcorn thrill ride that is worth the read.Pros: I overall enjoy the teamwork between the characters. This issue does not hold back as everything is on the line. It also helps that the art and dialog do a solid job at conveying the urgency and tone of this issue. There are some pretty brutal action going on in this book and it was awesome to see a symbiote- spirit of vengence- red hulk fight blackheart. In the...

Ultimate comics X... wait where are they? 0

POSSIBLE SPOILERS!!Pros: I really REALLY like the art in this issue. The depictions of tian in particular look great. I also found the dialogue to be much better written than the previous issue as well. All in all this a pretty looking issue with some engaging dialogue.Bad: If you have searched Karen Grant on wikipedia or read any of her appearances, you will already know that she is Jean Grey. Considering that this is the touted twist for this issue, it came off as "no duh." Also I did not care...

Hell on earth 0

Mephisto gives our anti-heroes another chance at life in exchange for defeating blackheart. Can they do it? Can the female ghost rider make me like her even less?Good: This is a event that you CANNOT take itself seriously. While there are high stakes, reading the comic, gazing at a lava-filled Vega and even just listening to the concept, it is just as absurd as a DragonBall Z episode ( yep, that is how you put Venom and DragonBall in the same sentence.) I really love the absurdity of it all, esp...

X-23 0

In the wake of the schism between the x-men, X-23 must make a choice on which side she falls on. Will she return to Utopia or stay in New York with Wolverine. The answer may surprise you ( unless you have read the latest issue of avengers academy.)Good: Marjorie Liu has done an excellent job in building the character of Laura since her series started ( Sorry I do not care what the fangirls will say about what she did with Hellion.) X-23 may come off as the generic "I do not know how to be human ...

Generation zero 0

Good: I really like the whole mystery conspiracy against Hope. It heightens the tensions and pushes characters who have mixed feelings for Hope to side with Zero. The art style was nice as well, better than the last issue as Hope looks more like a teenage girl than some zena-esc warrior like the previous issue.Bad: While i can see where zero is coming from, its hard for me to side with him. It is mostly due to the fact that he comes off as a poor man's Garra from the earlier days of Naruto ( Yep...

Bewitched by Scarlet Witch 0

The Good: Pietro has become a seemingly cold-heartless villain since the reboot, this issue is all about Pietro trying to do what would make his father happy, what he feels is the right thing to do. Pietro is viewed as somewhat sympathetic- no matter what he does, he keeps screwing things up. I also enjoyed the dialog between him and Wanda.The Bad: A certain villian who was a major antagonist from a craptacular event, makes a seemingly return here. Considering how appealing the redesign of the u...

Holy @#$% Spoilers!! 0

The Good: I loved Sana Takaeda's art style in X-23 and i love it here. The art style is beautiful and still retains the gritty feel of the story. Speaking of story, All four of our characters end up in unfortunate situation at the end. Sure we all know they are going to make a comeback in the end, but it was just so unexpected that it gives you that holy #$% moment. The writing is also top notch in this issue just like in the last one and the ending really REALLY made me want to pick up the next...

The original Fear Itself 0

So far this is what fear itself should have been- an event that delves into the fears of some of the heroes of this universe. It was cool to see Doctor Strange and Damion in this issue and it is curious where the story will take them later in this event. With the exception of the red hulk, all the heroes come off as sympathetic to me. What I really like are the antithesis. Not only do they represent the opposite and fear of our heroes, but to me they are a representation of the harsh negative fe...
