Phil’s Reviews:Stuff I Bought #228
Hawkeye #1 — Writer: Matt Fraction; Art: David Aja Invincible Iron Man #522 — Writer: Matt Fraction; Art: Salvador Larroca Defenders #9 — Writer: Matt Fraction; Artists: Jamie McKelvie with Mike Norton Three by one of Marvel’s top go-to writers. If Hawkeye’s creative unit feels familiar, that’s because Fraction and Aja were teamed (along with co-writer Ed Brubaker) on the cult favorite Iron Fist a few years ago, and since then they’ve only gotten better. This reminds me a lot of the sublime Daredevil, with its very clean, clear art, its masterful use of small panels to make the narrative flow smoothly, its firm … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #224
Popeye #2 (of 4) — Writer: Roger Langridge; Art: Ken Wheaton and Tom Neely I raved about the first issue of this, and the second is just as good, although on a smaller scale — instead of an ocean quest and the Sea Hag, we get one of those neighborhood domestic comedies that Segar was so good at, with Popeye dealing with a rival for Olive’s affections (in one of the Easter eggs Langridge has sprinkled throughout the book, it turns out to be Willie Wormwood, the “actor” who played the Snidely Whiplash-like bad guys in Segar’s early, pre-Popeye versions of Thimble … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #187
Jonah Hex #63 — Writers: Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti; Art: Jordi Bernet In a week without a lot of must-buy items, let’s start with an old reliable: as I’ve said here before, Jonah Hex stands or falls on its artists, and Bernet is the best among them; like a lot of European artists, his pleasure at getting to draw the Old West and its quirky, craggy characters and scenery is infectious, and the more terrible their actions (and the retribution that Hex rains down upon them), the more inspired his art becomes. Palmiotti and Gray give him a lot … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #7 by Dan!
It’s been a long week Ladies and Gentlemen, but comics make everything better! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) The Boys #47 Writer: Garth Ennis Artist: Russ Braun Dear god. Everything between Annie and Hughie comes to a head this issue, and we as readers get a special treat. Ennis is always at his strongest with character development, and it’s easy to forget that when he uses fart jokes all the time to hide it. The conversations feel completely accurate and real (except I haven’t heard anyone say “the c-word” that much) and it’s clearly helped … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #176
Hellboy: The Storm #2 (of 3) — Writer: Mike Mignola; Art: Duncan Fegredo Hellboy continues to punch his way to a big climax, as this mini, and the one to follow, complete an over-three-year story that began with Darkness Calls. Each issue works alone, though; you don’t have to know everything that’s going on to appreciate Fegredo’s moody, mystic and action-filled art, or to smile at Mignola’s laconic, stubbornly-regular-guy demon (at the end, he looks out a window to see that he’s surrounded by an army of undead, rotting English knights, and mutters, simply, “Crap.” Couldn’t have said it better … Continue reading
