The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #87 by Dan!

Sandman Overture 1

Another week… another set of reviews. Let’s do this! Sandman Overture #1 Writer: Neil Gaiman Artist: J.H. Williams III Let’s get this awful fact out of the way: I’m not a huge fan of Sandman. I enjoyed the first couple stories, but got tired of the constantly changing art style and the continuing idea of stories about stories’ that I feel like Gaiman always does. Now that I’ve lost half the audience, I will say that I enjoyed all the characters that Gaiman created in the universe. I thought the ideas were clever and smart, but I didn’t enjoy the … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #85 by Dan


All right, we’re back! This week, no villains covers. Looks like I have about 500 less words to write. Let’s do this!   Lazarus #4 Writer: Greg Rucka Artist: Michael Lark In this issue, moving pieces finally create some actual results and consequences of the actions. Forever Carlyle (our protagonist) has to deal with her brothers actions and what he’s doing to her family. It’s all been very high-concept, attempting to create all these different families amid the struggle to stay within a specific class. It’s a lot of fun, and this issue really ramps up the stakes. Everyone is … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #84 by Dan!


And we’re back! Just one more week left of 3-D covers, and I’ll be here to cover them all. But first, let’s hit all the important other stuff of the week. Let’s do this! Zero #1 Writer: Ales Kot Artist: Michael Walsh This is such a good comic, even Eddie read it and enjoyed it (cue audience gasp)! A special op agent is out in the field looking to collect some data while two super-soldiers fight to the death around him. This issue acts as the pilot to the series, and it is pretty darn fantastic. The art style is … Continue reading

Batman'66 #02

All right folks, we’re back in action. Lots of stuff to talk about so let’s do this! Chin Music #2 Writer: Steve Niles Artist: Tony Harris Chin Music is a really hard book to review. On the one hand, you know exactly what you’re getting with the creators, but on the other hand, you don’t know where it’s going to go. I heard it described as “supernatural mob justice” and that’s about the best description I could put on it. Someone has murdered Al Capone, and Elliot Ness is very suspicious of the circumstances. This issue really gets more into … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #256

Saga #13

There are a lot of good non-corporate, creator-owned books out right now (this has been a great year for them), so let’s start with those this week: Saga #13 — Writer: Brian K. Vaughan;  Art: Fiona Staples This is revving up again after a few months’ absence (the creative team takes a break after each six-issue volume), and the cover helps to show why Staples, the artist, has been such a big part of its becoming a hit: the eyes are drawn to the cute baby first, and the lifelike eyes, but then they notice the horns… and the fact … Continue reading
