Phil’s Reviews #231A: DC’s Zero Issues

No, I’m not doing all of the DC #0s for this week; just the six (well, seven) that caught my eye. Props to DC for including a full-page “Who’s Who”-type entry in each book, by the way — that’s a good move, especially if you figure that each of these origin issues will attract some readers who aren’t that familiar with the main title. Anyway… Team Seven #0 — Writer: Justin Jordan;  Pencils: Jesus Merino;  Inks: Norm Rapmund and Rob Hunter This is the one “new” title of the lot, and it suffers for that — DC had a good … Continue reading

The Latest and Mostly Greatest #48 by Dan!

Hello again! In case you didn’t read Phil’s reviews of the Avengers movie, long story short: He’s right, it’s awesome, go see it already. Batman #9 Writer: Scott Snyder Artist: Greg Capullo This is exactly what a crossover should be. Every story is tied into the main story, and so far every tie-in has been better because of the main story. This is probably the first time I can say that tie-ins actually work with this type of story. Basically,  the Court of Owls is set to destroy Gotham City and all the main people that help keep it going. … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #42 by Dan!

Hoo boy! It’s a Saturday, so it’s game on with the reviews folks. This was an odd week with cancellations and new titles and more, so let’s do this! Adventure Time #1 Writer: Ryan North Artist: Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb This. Book. Is. Awesome. An evil “bag of holding” starts trying to defeat Finn and Jake and everyone in adventure time, so it’s up to them to save the day. That doesn’t exactly work, even when they combine together to make Jake into a suit that Finn wears. It’s absolutely crazy. There’s captions at the bottom that put the … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #40 by Dan!

Busy week, so I’m putting this together nice and quick for you guys.  Let’s do this! PunisherMax #21 Writer: Jason Aaron Artist: Steve Dillon Holy Moses. This is the penultimate issue of this title and everything starts to go bang bang bang! Phil and I had a discussion determining how this fit into any kind of continuity and I think I finally put it together. This is acting as the end of everything from the Garth Ennis MAX run. That’s why there’s a random appearance by Barracuda, and that’s why Aaron can get away with killing the S$^% out of … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #38 by Dan!

Oh boy. Amidst the chaos that is graduation I’m still droppin’ reviews like it’s nobody’s business. Let’s do this! Batwoman #4 Writers: J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman Artist: Williams Don’t get me wrong, I love this book. It is without a doubt the best looking book of the new DC 52. It’s a delight to just look at every single page and analyze what exactly is happening. Williams varies his style by the page, and every one seems like a new invention. However, I really miss Greg Rucka. The story itself is just falling flat with me. It’s … Continue reading
