Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #264

Captain Action Cat #1

Captain Action Cat: The Timestream Catastrophe #1 — Writers: Franco, Chris “Zod” Smits, and Art Baltazar; Art: Art Baltazar Everybody knows Baltazar and Franco, right — Tiny Titans? Superman Family Adventures? Baltazar’s art epitomizes “fun,” and his bold layouts and colors are super-attractive to younger kids; I don’t know anyone under, say, seven years old who can resist them. Add in enough clever references to “real” continuity to keep adults entertained, too, and those DC books were some wonderful parent/child comics-bonding issues. In this new offering, the team takes their own creation, Action Cat, and sets up a crossover with … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #96 by Dan!

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #95 by Dan!

Animal Man 29

All right folks, it’s a lighter week so we won’t have a lot to talk about. But there’s still plenty of great stuff out there, so let’s do this! Daredevil #1 Writer: Mark Waid Artist: Chris Samnee Waid and Samnee ended their seminal run on Daredevil by revealing his identity and moving him to California. So now Waid and Samnee are back with an all-new location a possibly new set of characters and a lot of space to just roam. And roam they do. This issue acts as set-up (including a quick origin that is presented beautifully), Daredevil manages to … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #261

Beasts of Burden #1

Beasts of Burden: Hunters and Gatherers #1 (of 1) — Writer: Evan Dorkin;  Art: Jill Thompson This title, about a group of dogs and cats who fight supernatural menaces to their small town, doesn’t come out very often — once or twice a year if we’re lucky — but it’s always worth the wait, and always ends up on the top of my list. Dorkin is mostly known for his humor (Bill and Ted, back in the day, and Milk and Cheese and Dork, plus the about-to-be released Eltingville Club, a savage-but-loving takedown of comics fans which no one who’s … Continue reading
