The Latest and Mostly Greatest #17 by Dan!

I’m writing these on a Friday, whoa! Stuff on time! Let’s do this! My Top 5 (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Amazing Spider-Man #655 Writer: Dan Slott Artist: Marcos Martin Yup, I’m on the bandwagon for this issue. It’s been going around the “internets” (as dear Dubya once said) that this is some big special fantastic issue, and holy crap it is.  Look, all you need to know is that Dan Slott really loves writing Spider-Man and Marcos Martin draws the hell out of it.  With the recent death of J. Jonah Jameson’s wife, this is a first … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #13 By Dan!

The last reviews of the New Year! Don’t forget to come to the sale!  Heck, why are you even reading this, go to the sale now! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Flash #8 Writer: Geoff Johns Artist: Scott Kolins Kolins is completely in his element whenever he does a Rogue profile, as can be seen in this issue.  Dealing with how the Reverse Flash came to be, Kolins is able to make every word that Johns puts on the page really come to life.  The story itself is bizarre, and sounds like an idea that … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #7 by Dan!

It’s been a long week Ladies and Gentlemen, but comics make everything better! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) The Boys #47 Writer: Garth Ennis Artist: Russ Braun Dear god.  Everything between Annie and Hughie comes to a head this issue, and we as readers get a special treat.  Ennis is always at his strongest with character development, and it’s easy to forget that when he uses fart jokes all the time to hide it.  The conversations feel completely accurate and real (except I haven’t heard anyone say “the c-word” that much) and it’s clearly helped … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #4 by Dan!

Welcome back to the internet’s most exhausted reviews!  If you see the quality dipping I’ll blame it on the school semester, and we’ll see if Phil bans me from ever writing blog posts again.  Let’s do this: My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Secret Warriors #19 Writer: Jonathan Hickman Artist: Alessandro Vitti Secret Warriors is quickly becoming one of Marvel’s most fascinating works.  Month in and month out, Hickman delivers great action, drama, and ideas.  This time it’s probably the most powerful in the positioning of the Howling Commandos reunion juxtaposed with the death of many … Continue reading
