Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #342

Uncanny X-Men #600 — Writer: Brian Michael Bendis;  Art: Sara Pichelli, Mahmud Asrar, Stuart Immonen, Eris Anka, Chris Bachalo, David Marquez and Frazer Irving Let’s start with this — not a beginning, but an ending, the conclusion to Bendis’s three-year run on both Uncanny and All-New X-Men.  It’s mostly everybody attempting to perform an intervention on Henry McCoy, calling him to task for all his messing with the time-space continuum, after which he kind of stomps out. That’s basically it, but the various flashbacks and little set pieces play to Bendis’s dialogue and character strengths, and the division into small … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #334

Eleven Secret Wars tie-ins this week, but the good news is that seven of them are conclusions; there’s a growing light at the end of Jonathan Hickman’s three-year-old tunnel.  Let’s look at all of them one at a time: Secret Wars: A-Force #4 (of 5) — Writers: Marguerite Bennett and G. Willow Wilson;  Pencils: Jorge Molina;  Inks: Craig Yeung and Walden Wong;  Colors: Laura Martin This tryout/preview for one of Marvel’s new relaunch titles has been decent enough, with sharp character interaction among a diverse, interesting cast.

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #333

Still nine Secret Wars tie-ins this week, but we’re starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel, since two of them actually conclude; over on the DC side, the flood of new titles has settled considerably (only Bombshells made it to my “buy” stack this week), but that just leaves more room for a number of cool indy titles, including Casanova, Brian K. Vaughan’s US/Canadian war comic We Stand On Guard, Rich Tommaso’s almost-an-underground Dark Corridor, a new Jeff Lemire book, a new Minimum Wage, and the usual good comics from people named Moore (Alan and Terry, … Continue reading
