Review: Wolverine and the X-Men #29

By | May 16, 2013 | Reviews

In this epilogue to the latest arc of “Wolverine and the X-Men,” Wolverine gives a rousing speech, plays around with time, and shows us why this little title is still relevant in a post “Avengers vs. X-Men” world. Written by Jason Aaron Illustrated by Ramón Pérez • See the Jean Grey School of the future! […]

Review: Superboy #20

By | May 10, 2013 | Reviews

On paper, giving the New 52 version of Superboy to the man behind the “Luther Strode” series is a fantastic idea. DC seems set on making this incarnation of the Boy of Steel grittier, with a heaping helping of violence (hence the bloody “S” crest on the cover). Unfortunately, very little of Justin Jordan’s voice […]

Pick of the Week: Suicide Squad #20

By | May 9, 2013 | Reviews

Alan Moore’s “Swamp Thing.” Grant Morrison’s “Doom Patrol.” Warren Ellis’ “Stormwatch.” Each of these runs have a unifying thread in their history; their existence is owed to writers who took a struggling series, trimmed the fat, injected their own creativity, and gave life to a book that previously had little to offer. While it’s certainly […]

Review: The Movement #1

By | May 2, 2013 | Reviews

Rest assured, this isn’t quite the “Occupy Comics” book expected by many. Rather, “The Movement” #1 is a grim, scatterbrained debut that manages to carve a unique niche in the New 52. Written by Gail Simone Illustrated by Freddie E Williams II We are faceless. We are limitless. We see all. And we do not […]

Review: Five Weapons #3

By | Apr 25, 2013 | Reviews

Jimmie Robinson’s “Five Weapons” continues to exemplify the best of the “boarding school” genre, while adding a delightfully violent twist. However, by following the same formulaic plot structure issue after issue, “Five Weapons” is beginning to lose some of its magic. Written and Illustrated by Jimmie Robinson At the annual school festival, Tyler is caught […]

Review: Wolverine and the X-Men #27AU

By | Apr 19, 2013 | Reviews

“Wolverine and the X-Men” #27AU is an unfortunate type of event tie-in. Taking place between pages of this week’s “Age of Ultron” #6, writer Matt Kindt is forced to tell a story within a story, one that expands on the event, without giving away any information or plot threads that would make it “required reading.” […]

Review: Justice League of America’s Vibe #3

By | Apr 18, 2013 | Reviews

Sterling Gates returns to DC Comics in his first writing gig since “Hawk and Dove.” Does his take on “Justice League of America’s Vibe” (still such a silly name) fare better than that ill fated run? Is a creative change this early in the book’s life an early death knell? While this book still struggles […]

Review: Ultron #1AU

By | Apr 12, 2013 | Reviews

Despite its several shortcomings, one good thing about “Age of Ultron” is its relatively low number of tie-in issues. The latest tie-in issue, “Ultron” #1AU, has a strong concept that’s extremely relevant to the event (despite the issues’ absurd naming convention). However, much like the event series that spawned it, “Ultron” #1AU is packed with […]

Review: Saga #12

By | Apr 11, 2013 | Reviews

“Saga” #12 makes headlines with a bit of controversy, but we’ve got the real scoop: One year in, this book is still fantastic. Written by Brian K. Vaughan Illustrated by Fiona Staples Prince Robot IV makes his move. Joking aside, it’s truly incredible what Vaughan and Staples have accomplished here. Over the course of twelve issues […]
