The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #12 by Dan!

All right folks, it’s a Saturday morning, so you know what that means!  Review time! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Black Panther: The Man Without Fear #513 Writer: David Liss Artist: Francesco Francavilla This book was surprisingly awesome.  As was the case with Spider-man during “One More Day”, maybe Shadowland will lead to something much more fun.  Black Panther shows up fresh of his last failed series (has that been six?) to be a street level fighter on a quest for personal redemption.  He’s abandoned his family and kingdom to try to reconnect with the … Continue reading

Fresh Eyes on Old Books #10 by Dan!

Now it’s time for me to read some more old stuff and use excessive amounts of exclamation points!!! Let’s! Do! This! Fantastic Four #64 from 1967 This is a Kirby comic.  There’s no better way to describe what comes from this issue.  A combination of weird blocky robots, the Fantastic Four being fantastic, and the Inhumans lead to an exact representation of what Jack Kirby did for the medium.  It has the main evidence of Kirby’s styles in the huge drawings of machinery, Kirby dots, and big splash pages of action.  Not to mention that it’s a lot of fun.  … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #10 By Dan!

Oh holy crap!  We’ve already done ten of these?  Can you believe it? My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Batman Inc. #1 Writer: Grant Morrison Artist: Yanick Paquette Any comic that starts with the lines “Where are my hands?” and gets replied with “They are in Hell! Waiting for the Rest of you!” really is immediately sold to me.  Let’s be real here folks, you knew I was going to like this.  And dear God did I ever.  It had basically everything I wanted right from the sweet JG Jones cover (not pictured).  It was in … Continue reading

Fresh Eyes on Old Books #9 by Dan!

All right folks, it’s another dose of opinionated Silver/Bronze Age analysis.  Let’s do this! Amazing Spider-Man #88 from 1970 I was a little disappointed in this issue.  It was extremely misleading on the cover!  Probably only half the book was actually Doc Ock’s phantom legs attacking random people.  The rest was the usual Silver Age Spidey goodness.  It’s exactly what you’d expect from this Stan Lee/John Romita plethora of team ups from this era.  It’s absolute quality stuff that’s very simple to look at and enjoy.  Doc Ock captures some Chinese general (complete with stereotypical Asian designs) and Spiderman has … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #8 by Dan!

Interesting week here kids, let’s do this! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week): Punisher Max: Tiny Ugly World Writer: David Lapham Artist: Dalibor Talajic This book makes it to the top five based on how many times I went “oh holy S#!*” while I was reading it.  Lapham?  Still crazy.  But that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  Much like Garth Ennis, Lapham often tries to gross out with the extreme, and he succeeds so much.  I found myself unable to stop reading this book no matter how bad I might have wanted to.  The reason this … Continue reading
