The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #96 by Dan!

Inhuman 1

All right folks, while it was a lighter week, there’s still plenty of good stuff to check out this time around. Let’s do this! She-Hulk #3 Writer: Charles Soule Artist: Javier Pulido I hate feeling like I have to take a bet on when Pulido bails on this book, but I know it’s coming soon. But that’s a conversation for later; right now we should just enjoy this book for what it is. Embracing the recent success of Hawkeye and Daredevil, this book helps bring the street level lawyer She-Hulk into a more realistic setting. It helps that Soule writes … Continue reading

Animal Man 29

All right folks, it’s a lighter week so we won’t have a lot to talk about. But there’s still plenty of great stuff out there, so let’s do this! Daredevil #1 Writer: Mark Waid Artist: Chris Samnee Waid and Samnee ended their seminal run on Daredevil by revealing his identity and moving him to California. So now Waid and Samnee are back with an all-new location a possibly new set of characters and a lot of space to just roam. And roam they do. This issue acts as set-up (including a quick origin that is presented beautifully), Daredevil manages to … Continue reading

Moon Knight 1

All right folks. We’re back with a bunch of new comics and a big ol’ week of books. Let’s do this. Moon Knight #1 Writer: Warren Ellis Artist: Declan Shalvey So you’d think I would love this book if only because Ellis is writing it, but it goes way beyond that. Ellis take on Moon Knight is as quality as you’d expect it to be, but it’s Shalvey’s art and Jordie Bellaire’s coloring (or lack thereof) that make this book easily stand out as the best of the week. I think they chose to not even color in any part … Continue reading

daredevil 36

It was a weirdly light week full of strange books, so let’s get right to this folks! Daredevil #36 Writer: Mark Waid Artist: Chris Samnee This issue brings an end to a lot of different things for Matt Murdock. Waid has built this story for a couple years, improving Murdock’s life while always letting him have a different new problem to deal with. Waid built stories that didn’t come off as aggressively depressing like his predecessors, and he found a delicate balance between all the conflicts that Murdock had to deal with. This series will just reset with a new … Continue reading

saga 18

All right folks, we’re back in action. A smaller week, but lots of good stuff, so let’s do this! The Saviors #2 Writer: James Robinson Artist: J. Bone Picking up right where the first issue left off, Saviors kicks up the action with Tomas fleeing from a weird flying lizard dude that used to be the sheriff. He gets rescued by another guy, who has some of the answers, but not quite everything. They run off to Mexico, but the sheriff seems to already know pieces of the plan. Robinson’s writing is at its best when he has some type … Continue reading
