The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #74 by Dan!

Age of Ultron 8

All right folks, lots of stuff this week, so let’s do this! Age of Ultron #8 Writer: Brian Bendis Artist: Brandon Peterson I just can’t get into this. I can’t explain why, I’m a huge fan of time travel, I love the high-concept stories, and I want to like the entire idea behind this, but it just feels like Bendis is trying to push a redone version of House of M at us, and I can’t get into it. Add the fact that Peterson seems wickedly rushed making his faces look crazy, and that everything has been building to a … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #242

Young Romance #1

Young Romance #1 (of 1) — Creators: Ann Nocenti and Emanuela Lupacchino (Catwoman/Batman); Cecil Castellucci and Inaki Miranda (Aquaman/Mera);  Ray Fawkes and Julius Gopez (Batgirl/Random Guy);  Peter Milligan and Simon Bisley (Apollo/Midnighter);  Kyle Higgins and Sanford Greene (Nightwing/Ursa Minor); Andy Diggle and Robson Rocha (Superman/Wonder Woman) DC exhibits rare good timing, with a 48-page Valentine’s Day special the week before the event. If your significant other is a DC fan, this $7.99 package would be a decent present: the leadoff Catwoman/Batman story is good, while there’s welcome diversity in the Apollo/Midnighter tale (and the best art); the Superman/Wonder Woman story … Continue reading

Hey guys! Two weeks in a row! Don’t worry, you’ll be sick of me about halfway through this thing. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #17 Writer: Tom Waltz Artist: Ben Bates I feel like I’ve said this a bunch of times, but IDW’s reboot of the TMNT franchise is phenomenal! And as a guy with just barely too much time on his hands, I’ve been watching the 80’s cartoon, and catching up to what’s going on here. Obviously, this is going to be a bit darker and more intense (only slightly less pizza) but updating these characters to work in a … Continue reading

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
