Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #267

Since there are a fair number of books this week, let’s be different and break them down by company…. Deadly Class #1 — Writer: Rick Remender;  Art: Wes Craig Pretty Deadly #4 — Writer: Kelly Sue Deconnick;  Art: Emma Rios Bad Dog #6 (of 6) — Writer: Joe Casey;  Art: Diego Greco Image’s business model — for a set administrative fee, they provide a publishing platform for creators, who retain all rights to their work — has attracted a number of excellent writers and artists over the last few years, and led to a sprawling, diverse group of titles. Cases … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #89 by Dan!

All right folks, events are ending, things are happening and comic books are still coming out. Let’s do this! Infinity #6 Writer: Jonathan Hickman Artist: Jim Cheung w/Dustin Weaver New Avengers #12 Writer: Jonathan Hickman Artist: Mike Deodato Hmm…without really ending, Infinity comes to a close. If the real villain was Thanos, then the story is wrapped up, but it’s really hard to say after you read New Avengers. As has been the case with most of this event, it’s clear that Hickman has a plan, but after reading the epilogue in New Avengers it’s clear that this plan is … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #86 by Dan!

All right folks we’re back! It’s another great week of comics with plenty worth talking about. Let’s do this! Letter 44 #1 Writer: Charles Soule Artist: Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque This new comic is probably the most interesting thing to come out this week.

Apparently something was found out in space and it is building stuff out in space and the previous president did everything he could to learn about it, regardless of what it did to the American people. The new president … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #79 by Dan!

And I’m back! It’s been so very long since you’ve heard from me, but I’m back in action. Let’s do this! Justice League Dark #22 Writer: Jeff Lemire Artist: Mikel Janin Constantine #5 Writer: Ray Fawkes Artist: Renato Guedes I’m starting to think I’m a little burnt out on all the DC events that go down. That’s not to say this one is bad. Things are actually happening and moving right along, but I just kinda don’t care anymore.  The Justice League, Justice League of America and Justice League Dark all officially run into each other while trying to deal … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #253

Lots of first (and a couple of second) issues out this week, so let’s start with those: Ghosted #1 — Writer: Joshua Williamson;  Art: Goran Sudzuka A very rich old guy breaks a criminal mastermind out of jail, to put together a team to enter a haunted house that’s about to be torn down, and bring back a real ghost from it. High-concept but kind of low execution, since if you poke at the plot it starts to unravel like a cheap blanket (if he’s that rich, why break the mastermind out in a bloody prison break? There are lots … Continue reading
