Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #188

Iron Man #500 — Writer: Matt Fraction;  Art: Salvador Larroca and Frank D’Armata; Kano; Nathan Fox and Javier Rodriguez; Carmine Di Giandomenico and Matthew Wilson One of those start-the-original-numbering-over anniversary issues, complete with a five-page gallery of all 500 covers. Fraction proved with last year’s Iron Man Annual that’s he’s good at these big-event comics, and he doesn’t disappoint here, providing a 56-page story that guest-stars Spider-Man and roams from the present to the year 2052 (where the Mandarin, who was handled so well by Fraction in that annual, has taken over the world) and back; the varying time periods … Continue reading

Palmiotti and Gray give him a lot … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #184

Ultimate Spider-Man #150 — Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Art: Various, including David Lafuente, Sara Pichelli, Joelle Jones,  Jamie McKelvie and Scottie Young … and that’s just the major artists; the backup story has  a couple of  pages each from, among others, Alex Maleev, Dan Brereton, John Romita Senior, Frank Cho, Jim Mahfood, Craig Thompson (!), James Kolchalka (!!), and another dozen or more people. That adds up to 96 pages of story and art, so the $6 cover price isn’t that bad — and, as a celebration of the best mainstream superhero comic of the ’00s (yep, the first issue … Continue reading
