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. Let’s look… Captain Marvel #6 — Writer: Kelly Sue Deconnick;  Art: David Lopez This is the end of the book’s first arc, and it’s been a smart, stylish space story, with Carol helping the population of an oppressed planet against a seemingly-overwhelming military force (this issue’s scenes of an unarmed people protesting against heavily-armored authority figures echoes, quite by chance, recent events out of Missouri), … Continue reading

Kick-Ass 3 #8

Kick-Ass 3 # 8 (  of 8  ) — Writer: Mark Millar;  Pencils: John Romita Jr.;  Inks: Tom Palmer Millar has said previously that this issue is the end of both this mini-series and the entire Kick-Ass saga; he’s been coy about hinting that one or both of the main characters might not survive. I won’t play spoiler here, but I’ll say that it’s a satisfying conclusion, and has been his best sustained work (and certainly, if you go by publicity and movie deals, his most successful) — and that I actually cared whether the characters would live, one of … Continue reading

Hawkeye #19

Fatale #24 (of 24) — Writer: Ed Brubaker;  Art: Sean Phillips Hawkeye #19 — Writer: Matt Fraction;  Art: David Aja Sandman: Overture #3 (of 6) — Writer: Neil Gaiman;  Art: J. H. Williams III Outcast #2 — Writer: Robert Kirkman;  Art: Paul Azaceta These first four books are linked simply because they’re all good stories from top creative teams, and representative of the best that weekly serial comics have to offer. Fatale is the last issue, and a definite, and satisfying, conclusion to the story; Brubaker and Phillips have been offering effective crime/noir books for a decade now, since Sleeper, … Continue reading
