Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #270

The Wicked and the Divine #1 — Writer: Kieron Gillen;  Art: Jamie McKelvie Iron Man #28 — Writer: Kieron Gillen;  Pencils: Joe Bennett, Cliff Richards and Derlis Santacruz;  Inks: Scott Hanna and Rick Magyar Gillen’s one of the better writers in comics right now, and his first big splash was Phonogram — especially the second volume, a multiple-perspective tale of one night in a dance hall, and the magical effects of the music played there on its listeners. That was a collaboration with McKelvie, too, and the team went on to create one of last year’s best mainstream series, Young Avengers; … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #267

The Shadow: Midnight in Moscow #1 (of 6) — Writer/Artist: Howard Chaykin The Shadow’s one of those classic characters who attracts creators — Denny O’Neil and Michael Kaluta in the ’70s, and Chaykin himself in the ’80s — who see him as an effective springboard for slam-bang pulp adventure. This story’s set in 1949, a period whose fashions and people Chaykin has always loved to draw (Satellite Sam, his other current work, is set the same era — and written by Matt Fraction, who knows full well how to keep his artists happy), and watching him set up his plot, craft … Continue reading

All right folks, we’re back in action. Not a bad week for comics, but only a few that really stood out. Let’s do this! Elektra #1 Writer: W. Haden Blackman Artist: Mike Del Mundo The first few pages of this issue threw me off. It was a fair amount of talking, reminding the reader about just who Elektra was and what had come before.

In a similar … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #93 by Dan!

It was a weirdly light week full of strange books, so let’s get right to this folks! Daredevil #36 Writer: Mark Waid Artist: Chris Samnee This issue brings an end to a lot of different things for Matt Murdock. Waid has built this story for a couple years, improving Murdock’s life while always letting him have a different new problem to deal with. Waid built stories that didn’t come off as aggressively depressing like his predecessors, and he found a delicate balance between all the conflicts that Murdock had to deal with. This series will just reset with a new … Continue reading
