Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #359

Black Widow #1 — Writers: Chris Samnee and Mark Waid;  Art: Chris Samnee;  Colors: Matthew Wilson Avengers Standoff: Assault on Pleasant Hill Alpha — Writer: Nick Spencer;  Art/Colors: Jesus Saiz Two debuts from Marvel: Black Widow‘s had a lot of anticipation, coming from the Daredevil team of Waid and Samnee, and what this first issue offers is basically the first five minutes of a James Bond or Mission Impossible film: a full-on action sequence/chase showcasing the super-spy derring-do aspects of the character. Since much of it is wordless, it’s over quickly, and readers may feel like “That’s it?”, but if … Continue reading

Spider-Man #1 — Writer: Brian Michael Bendis;  Art: Sara Pichelli;  Ink Assists: Gaetano Carlucci;  Colors: Justin Ponsor Amazing Spider-Man #7 — Writer: Dan Slott;  Art: Matteo Buffagni;  Colors: Marte Gracia Spidey #3 — Writer: Robbie Thompson;  Art: Nick Bradshaw;  Colors: Jim Campbell and Rachelle Rosenberg Three Spider-Man books in one week isn’t exactly a testament to Marvel’s shipping strategy, but at least they’re all very different.  Spider-Man is Miles Morales in the regular Marvel universe — and he’s one of only a couple people who even remember that there was any other universe, or a Secret Wars,  all because he … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #351

Before we get to the reviews, let’s give a shout-out to DC this week: their new batch of alternative covers for their January issues involves a cool coloring-book-ready black-and-white style, perfect for both kids and adults to pick up some markers and try their hands at the profession of cartoon colorist; even if you’re the kind of fan who shudders at ruining a perfectly-collectable comic, you can always remove the special thicker-paper outer cover, because the book’s regular one is right underneath it — or, buy two copies, one to color and one to keep (then, encourage everyone else to … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #342

Uncanny X-Men #600 — Writer: Brian Michael Bendis;  Art: Sara Pichelli, Mahmud Asrar, Stuart Immonen, Eris Anka, Chris Bachalo, David Marquez and Frazer Irving Let’s start with this — not a beginning, but an ending, the conclusion to Bendis’s three-year run on both Uncanny and All-New X-Men.  It’s mostly everybody attempting to perform an intervention on Henry McCoy, calling him to task for all his messing with the time-space continuum, after which he kind of stomps out. That’s basically it, but the various flashbacks and little set pieces play to Bendis’s dialogue and character strengths, and the division into small … Continue reading
