The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #61 by Dan!

deadpool 1

All right folks, it’s a big week with lots of things worth noting, so why not check out some of the best (and possibly worst) of the week. Let’s do this! Deadpool #1 Writers: Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan Artist: Tony Moore This is a book full of political assassination jokes; do you need to know anything else? You do? Oh…Well, alt-comedian Posehn’s dark comedy style is clearly injected into this piece and that makes it surprisingly hilarious. Where Daniel Way was relying on the multiple narrators in Deadpool’s head to crack all the jokes, Posehn and Duggan put them … Continue reading

FF 23

I’m in a good mood, so these reviews might be positive. But now I’m in a bad mood because I just found out Amazon purchases will charge Arizona residents sales tax, so these reviews might be angry. Let’s find out! FF #23 Writer: Jonathan Hickman Artist: Nick Dragotta This book is without a doubt the best of the week. We’re in this weird transition stage, and this is the week where four main Marvel titles come to their end. While other titles reestablish the status quo (more on that later), this issue takes a different approach. It’s upsetting and depressing … Continue reading

Batman 13

Ooooh boy I’m back! After traditional, respectful and insightful reviews from good ol’ Phil the last two weeks, it’s back to fart jokes, fat jokes and everything in between. Let’s do this! Uncanny Avengers #1 Writer: Rick Remender Artist: John Cassaday Well, this was a crazy thing, wasn’t it? After the ‘meh’ wrap up of AvX, something big needed to show up and make things all right. This book exceeded expectations, which is what you’re looking for from a flagship title. Cassaday’s art is a guaranteed victory, but it’s the plot that really drives this issue from good to great. … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #232

Journey Into Mystery #644

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 2

All right folks! Football season’s starting, but I won’t be writing these on Sunday’s, so you won’t get to hear about the stupid amounts of money and pride I lose! Let’s do this! The Boys #70 Writer: Garth Ennis Artist: Russ Braun I have to say, I do wonder what this book would have looked like if Robertson hadn’t jumped ship about 20 issues ago. I’ve moved on, but it’s interesting to see just how much Braun has done. Phil and I seem to debate each month about the ending of this book, and that’s how you know it’s good. … Continue reading
