All-Star Western #34

All-Star Western #34 — Writers: Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray;  Art: Darwyn Cooke This is the last issue of this book, ending an eight-year run (70 issues of the pre-New 52 Jonah Hex immediately preceded it): an impressive accomplishment for a western book in today’s market. Part of that is attributable to Palmiotti and Gray’s steady, solid writing — most of their earlier stories were one-issue tales, with a good grasp of their surly, barely-heroic protagonist and his gruff charms, while later ones were marketing-savvy enough to take him to the 1800s Gotham City and even, for a while, to the … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #279

Multiversity #1

Not a bad week — two hotly-anticipated first issues, plus still-early, you-can-still-get-the-whole-set editions of some really good titles, and assorted other cool stuff too. Let’s look….: Multiversity #1 — Writer: Grant Morrison;  Pencils: Ivan Reis;  Inks: Joe Prado Morrison first announced this years ago, right after Infinite Crisis, so it’s had a long gestation; as the title suggests, it uses the 52 universes (universi?) of the New-52 cosmos as its playground, as a group of heroes gather to try to rescue Nix Uotan, the last Monitor, and protect the multiverse from encroaching evil. There are lots of echoes of earlier … Continue reading

Captain Marvel #6

There weren’t quite as many good comics this week as in the last few months — summer is definitely starting to wind down — but still more than enough to make a decent reading pile.
