Hi folks! the internet is down at my house, so I’m hanging with my parents while I do this. Yee-haw! Let’s do this! New Avengers #6 Writer: Jonathan Hickman Artist: Steve Epting Aside from Deadpool, which I don’t count cause it’s a comedy, sometimes I feel like New Avengers is the ony Marvel Now book really worth reading. It’s a completely fresh take on traditional Marvel characters, it’s introduced some new players, and it’s got a high concept that’s bound to have a payoff at some point. With this issue, the cover doesn’t lie, as a planet blows up, things … Continue reading

Journey Into Mystery #644 — Writers: Kieron Gillen and Matt Fraction; Art: Carmine di Giandomenico I’ve made it no secret how much I like Teen Loki: instead of a stereotypical cackling villain, he’s a kid trying desperately to do the right thing, and he’s willing to cheat, lie and piss off any powerful adult figures to do it. That makes him, simultaneously, a typical Trickster archetype and a typical adolescent, and leads frequently to results like the one on this issue’s cover. In the capable hands of Gillen and Fraction, we’ve actually come to care about the little hustler; here’s … Continue reading

Hawkeye #1 — Writer: Matt Fraction; Art: David Aja Invincible Iron Man #522 — Writer: Matt Fraction; Art: Salvador Larroca Defenders #9 — Writer: Matt Fraction; Artists: Jamie McKelvie with Mike Norton Three by one of Marvel’s top go-to writers. If Hawkeye’s creative unit feels familiar, that’s because Fraction and Aja were teamed (along with co-writer Ed Brubaker) on the cult favorite Iron Fist a few years ago, and since then they’ve only gotten better. This reminds me a lot of the sublime Daredevil, with its very clean, clear art, its masterful use of small panels to make the narrative flow smoothly, its firm … Continue reading

The Latest and Mostly Greatest #47 by Dan
Oh boy, the Professor and I have agreed that there has been a ton of stuff worth talking about lately and limited internet space to post about it! It’s a good time to be reading comic books folks, so here’s more reviews for ya’! The Shadow #1 Writer: Garth Ennis Artist: Aaron Campbell At times violent, at times dark, and at times funny, this new iteration of the Shadow hits all the style you’d expect from a Garth Ennis comic. However… you don’t quite get the traditional Ennis-isms that have become “the type” that you would expect from him. It’s … Continue reading

Saga #1 — Writer: Brian K. Vaughan; Art: Fiona Staples Vaughan’s last extended series was Y: The Last Man, so he’s got a reputation to uphold, and this debut issue does so nicely: it’s a fantasy/Star Wars/Romeo and Juliet mashup, with all the sprawl its name implies — but this first issue focuses very tightly on just two characters, and the third one they produce. It’s very well done, and Staples brings enormous talent to the drawing: she’s just the kind of artist I admire, able to work with small human expressions and double-page city-destroying splashes (with giant turtles added!) … Continue reading
