Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #360

The Infinity Entity #1 (of 4) — Writer: Jim Starlin;  Pencils: Alan Davis;  Inks: Mark Farmer;  Colors: Jordan Boyd Mockingbird #1 — Writer: Chelsea Cain;  Art: Kate Niemozyle;  Colors: Rachelle Rosenberg The Haunted Mansion #1 (of 5) — Writer: Joshua Williamson;  Art: Jorge Coelho;  Colors: Jean-Francois Beaulieu This week’s Marvel debuts — Infinity Entity #1 continues Jim Starlin’s decades-long (as in, since the ’70s) chronicling of the adventures of Adam Warlock, Thanos, and Marvel’s cosmic characters; he’s been doing this lately in original graphic novels, so it’s nice to see this installment as a good-‘ol floppy comic. Davis and Farmer … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews : Stuff I Bought #284

Last week for the DC special covers, so let’s check them out (now that we’ve figured out how to animate them automatically), and then take a quick look at some of the best of this week’s other offerings: Harley Quinn #1 — Writers: Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Connor;  Art: Chad Hardin This Futures End one-shot comes the closest of all of them to just being a regular issue of the comic: it’s by the same creative team, and its tongue-in-cheek style means it doesn’t care about continuity anyway (a good thing, since the Futures End Suicide Squad #1 a few … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #234

Hawkeye #3 — Writer: Matt Fraction;  Art: David Aja;  Color: Matt Hollingsworth;  Letters: Chris Eliopoulos Daredevil #19 — Writer: Mark Waid;  Art: Chris Samnee; Color: Javier Rodriguez These two comics make me happy — they’re both confident, highly polished storytelling efforts, with writers who know how to create subtle, intriguing characters and slambang action plots, and artists who know how to break that action into fast-moving panels with crystal-clear composition and sharp, smooth lines. Special call-outs to the colorists of each book, too, who know just how to highlight, and when to be subdued, and whose palettes enhance the art … Continue reading
