Avengers #11 — Writer: Jonathan Hickman; Art: Mike Deodato Secret Avengers #4 — Writer: Nick Spencer; Art: Luke Ross Uncanny Avengers #8 — Writer: Rick Remender; Art: Daniel Acuna Avengers Assemble #15 AU — Writer: Al Ewing; Pencils: Butch Guice; Inks: Tom Palmer with Rick Magyar Lots of Avengers comics this week (plus Avengers Arena, although only the title of that mini-series really connects it to the franchise), and they’re a mixed bag. Hickman’s Avengers is the best; wisely, this is a special-ops, done-in-one story, so it doesn’t add to the title’s increasingly-complex backstory: it’s got Shang-Chi, Spider-Woman, Black Widow, … Continue reading
All right folks, we all survived Free Comic Book Day! That’s why this is a little bit late, but the quality will be as great as ever! I slept for 10 hours, so… Let’s do this! Hawkeye #10 Writer: Matt Fraction Artist: Francesco Francavilla: Guys, let’s be totally honest here. Did anyone think that I wouldn’t pick this as my book of the week? I am obsessed with Francavilla, and putting him on what is easily the best Marvel book coming out right now makes this an almost perfect issue of Hawkeye. After an upsetting secondary character death, Fraction rewinds … Continue reading
Hawkeye #9 — Writer: Matt Fraction; Art: David Aja This continues, in its quiet little way, to be one of the best monthly comics out there — while it’s not like much happens this issue (a couple of the tracksuit Russian mobsters get beaten up, but otherwise the only major action occurs on the last page), it’s a perfect little glimpse into the life of its stubbornly adolescent hero and the five women in his life. Aja continues to be just the right artist for it, too: everyone’s immediately distinguishable, even with Fraction’s “no costumes on anyone” rule, and the … Continue reading
And we’re back! It was a light week here for comics, but some of these titles are definitely worth talking about. Let’s do this! Detective Comics Writers: John Layman & James Tynion IV Artists: Jay Fabok, Andy Clarke, Henrik Jonsson, Mikel Janin and Jason Masters All right, so while not actually being the 900th issue of Detective Comics (but we all totally know it is) this issue talks about “the 900″, a block in Gotham City that just so happens to get infected by Man-Bat serum and everything goes crazy in Gotham. It’s a surprisingly good issue, and that’s even … Continue reading
Age of Ultron #2 ( of 8 ) — Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Pencils: Brian Hitch; Inks: Paul Neary Uncanny X-Men #3 — Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Pencils: Chris Bachalo; Inks: Tim Townsend, Jaime Mendoza, Al Vey and Victor Olazara First, for a story set in an Ultron-destroyed New York, Age Of is a very pretty book — all the little bits of rubble are lovingly drawn, while the desperate human refugees look unfailingly handsome; even a reveal of Black Widow’s injured face looks oddly attractive: this is what happens when you get Bryan Hitch to draw your comic. When you get … Continue reading
