The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #26

All right folks, this one’s a rush, so I apologize in advance.  Gotta get this going before I bail for the north.  Have a happy 4th of July and don’t forget to check out our BIG SALE on Monday! (shameless plug) The Goon #34 Writer/Artist: Eric Powell Oh hell yes! The Goon!  Literally the best thing you’ve probably never read is back and not missing a beat.  Powell is without a doubt the King of painted art, and his monsters rival some of the greats from the past.  It’s the greatest comic you’ve probably never read, but seriously, it’s worth … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #15 by Dan!

All right folks!  It was a seriously huge week, so let’s get down to business! My Top 5 (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Fantastic Four #587 Writer: Jonathan Hickman, Artist: Steve Epting I am shocked.  I really have not cared about the Hickman FF run at all.  I found it boring, pretentious and convoluted.  Then the last six pages of this issue happened.  I know that you’ve probably all heard about the death, but I don’t feel like spoiling it.  Just know that it was in a super bad-ass take no prisoners, kicking and screaming kinda way, adding … Continue reading

Fresh Eyes on Old Books #13 by Dan!

It’s a new year! Do you know what that means?  All these comics are older, and you are too! Let’s do this. Tales to Astonish #60 from 1964 So, I really don’t like the Hulk that much.  I find him a big, boring, punching machine, and it just doesn’t usually work for me.  This issue was no real exception.  Ditko art was very pretty to look at, and what really surprised me was just how much dialogue this Hulk story had.  You’d think it would be more of a grunt-and-punch type of story, but instead it was plot heavy, which … Continue reading

Fresh Eyes on Old Books #6 by Dan!

This Cardinals game is depressing me, and I’m already exhausted, Let’s look at some old stuff! World’s Finest #99 from 1959 I can honestly say this wasn’t what I was expecting.  They manage to cram four different stories into one issue and it kinda seems like the type of story that would be ideal for younger generations.  The first story is all about Batman trying to spend a million dollars, and the wacky hijinks as Superman tries to prevent it.  It was just as goofy as you think it would be, and ends with Batman mocking Robin while Superman laughs … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #4 by Dan!

Welcome back to the internet’s most exhausted reviews!  If you see the quality dipping I’ll blame it on the school semester, and we’ll see if Phil bans me from ever writing blog posts again.  Let’s do this: My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Secret Warriors #19 Writer: Jonathan Hickman Artist: Alessandro Vitti Secret Warriors is quickly becoming one of Marvel’s most fascinating works.  Month in and month out, Hickman delivers great action, drama, and ideas.  This time it’s probably the most powerful in the positioning of the Howling Commandos reunion juxtaposed with the death of many … Continue reading
