The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #55 by Dan!

Holy guacamole… I’m back! Weird scheduling gave Phil the best shipping week in a while last week, and what do I get? Well, let’s just find out! Bulletproof Coffin: Disinterred #6 Writer: David Hine Artist: Shaky Kane Well, this was a thing. I decided to look up the word disinterred, and got the phrase “to bring from obscurity into view” and ya know what? I’ll accept that. This book has been a plethora of strange stories that don’t even remotely tie together. Individual issues that pretend to be a cohesive mini-series based almost entirely in the world of the strange. … Continue reading

The latest and (Mostly) Greatest #43

And we’re back! Here comes the latest round of reviews for this week’s books! Wolverine and the X-men #6 Writer: Jason Aaron Artist: Nick Bradshaw Holy Moly this is a weird book! As Beast and students have to kill the Brood growing inside of Kitty Pride, Kitty has to dodge the actual Brood attack going on at the school. Out in a separate galaxy, Wolverine and Kid Omega are gambling to get money for their school. The chaos going on in this book is perfectly rendered by Bradshaw who channels a “smushed face” Art Adams style. Every issue of this … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #212

Fables #112 — Writer: Bill Willingham;  Pencils: Mark Buckingham;  Inks: Steve Leialoha, Andrew Pepoy and Dan Green In a week that’s a holiday gift to readers — after what’s turned into a great year for comics, there were at least a dozen noteworthy ones just this Wednesday — Fables gets first position this week because it’s a Christmas story, of sorts. While we check in with most of the current subplots (but not the one involving Bufkin, Willingham leaving his fate, literally, hanging), the main thread involves Rose Red and a story about hope, taking its structure from A Christmas … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #211

The Defenders #1 — Writer: Matt Fraction;  Penciller: Terry Dodson;  Inker: Rachel Dodson This is Marvel’s latest attempt to revive this franchise, a best-seller in the ’70s and ’80s but not particularly successful since then, and Fraction’s using leftover plotlines from Fear Itself to do it (specifically, the Nul character who possessed the Hulk, now loose in our world and threatening to break the universe). The core group of Dr. Strange, Silver Surfer and Namor are there, with the Red She-Hulk substituting for Bruce Banner, and Iron Fist thrown in (presumably because Fraction likes writing him). As with Iron Man … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #36 by Dan!

Back again! Now that Phil’s stopped reviewing every DC title I’m gunna take his lead and go back to the regular amount of laziness. Let’s do this! Batman #3 Writer: Scott Snyder Artist: Greg Capullo So Batman has been a surprise. I knew coming from Detective that Snyder had a grip on the Bat-family, but his first real work with Bruce as Batman has been amazing. What’s really been the surprise of the whole thing is Capullo. I’m gunna be totally honest here, his work on Haunt was dreadful, but I think that’s because he had Todd McFarlane inking him … Continue reading
