Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #203

Sergio Aragones Funnies #2 — Writer/Artist: Guess who Just as entertaining, wide-ranging and well-produced as the first issue, with a combination of the one-page gags that Mad readers are so familiar with, plus a trio of longer (five and seven pages) stories, including a fascinating autobiographical piece about the first time the schoolchild Sergio ever got paid for his drawing; like the other longer works, it’s colored by Groo‘s Tom Luth, and looks wonderful. Throw in a couple of puzzle pages, and this continues to be one of the best comics on the stands. DMZ #68 — Writer: Brian Wood; … Continue reading

It Came From the Back Room #18

Standard recap: I’m slowly going through AABC’s one-million-plus back-issue room, restocking the boxes on the sales floor and pulling stuff to sell as discount/overstock/special items. I’m going through the alphabet backwards (don’t ask), and at my speed, this amounts to a two-year project. This week is brought to you by DC, who have the longest-running of all the “J” titles: Justice League of America In our last regular installment (before we broke to discuss Dwayne McDuffie), we had just finished up Justice League Volume II (the ’80s Giffen/DeMatteis bwah-ha-ha run), and were about to start the next incarnation.That would be the … Continue reading

Fresh Eyes on Old Books #18 by Dan!

Whoa, it’s late on a Sunday and I’m late with the reviews.  How responsible! Let’s do this: Wonder Woman #169 from 1967 So there’s this Crimson Centipede right?  Multitude of arms and legs, so on so forth.  Nineteen sixty-seven was a freaking genius time.  This villain carries guns in his right hands, and stolen money in his left, so what’s not to love?  Add to that the fact that this guy also uses those arms to run super fast.  I can’t make this kind of genius up.  The art is kinda terrible, but in one of those “I’m looking at … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Read and Put Back #173

Justice League: The Rise of Arsenal #4 (of 4) — Writer: J.T. Krul;  Pencillers: Geraldo Borges, Kevin Sharpe and Fabio Jansen;  Inkers: Marlo Alquiza and Scott Hanna Green Arrow #1 — Writer: J.T. Krul;  Penciller: Diogenes Neves;  Inker: Vicente Cifuentes Two related books, both by the same writer: Arsenal has become the summer’s most-mocked book, a humorless, soul-deadening, editorially-mandated deconstruction of Roy Harper that’s managed to embody the worst excesses of corporately-controlled characters. No, Roy doesn’t get better by the end of the series; he turns into the Punisher, if the Punisher were addicted to heroin. No, that doesn’t make … Continue reading
