The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #6 by Dan!

Do you ever just get really sick and tired of reviewing comics?  Cause I don’t! Let’s do this! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Secret Avengers #5 Writer: Ed Brubaker Artists: Michael Lark and David Aja What do you do when your superstar artist takes an issue off?  You bring in two of the sweetest possibly fill-in artists to come and do the job.  Both Aja (Iron Fist) and Lark (Daredevil & Gotham Central) have worked with Brubaker before, and they pick up right where they left off in terms of quality.  An absolutely fascinating back-story … Continue reading
