My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Batman And Robin #14 Writer: Grant Morrison Artist: Frazer Irving Do you ever get tired of me telling you just how awesome Batman and Robin is?  Well I’m not sure I’ll be able to much longer with the changing creative team, so enjoy it while it lasts!  This issue, things continue building to a head … 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

Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #175

Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour — Writer/Artist: Bryan Lee O’Malley Yes, it’s a satisfying conclusion, and a cultural phenomenon, and about to be a movie — but don’t read this volume if you’ve never heard of it until now: it’s the sixth and last book of a series.

That way, you’ll get to see O’Malley develop over the six years it took to create this story (there’s a noticeable leap in storytelling ability with each of the first five books), and you’ll get to know and care for … Continue reading
