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!

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
