Ya’ know… only 170 more of these and I’ll catch up to Phil… sigh. Let’s do this! Thunderbolts #1 Writer: Daniel Way Artist: Steve Dillon This introduction to the all-new Thunderbolts is your traditional team-building first issue, but laid out in a different way. The Punisher is tied up with a collection of mobsters ready to close in, as General Ross gives him a very lopsided ultimatum. There’s info about every single character put into place in a pretty violent way, and I can only imagine the dark twisted pieces of this comic will not disappoint. It’s like the early … Continue reading
What’s this?! Two weeks in a row!? How dare I… Yup that’s right, Phil’s out this week, so you’re getting a good-ol’ fashioned double-dose of Dan. Let’s do this! Fury Max #2 Writer: Garth Ennis Artist: Goran Parlov Hey! Remember all those reasons you like Garth Ennis comics? And remember how you think when he resorts to fart jokes you find yourself just a little disappointed cuz’ you know he can do better? Well, this right here is where he does better. It’s Ennis telling a straight-up war story, with Nick Fury acting as any of a million different war characters you’ve … Continue reading
Earth 2 #1 — Writer: James Robinson; Pencils: Nicola Scott; Inks: Trevor Scott Worlds’ Finest #1 — Writer: Paul Levitz; Pencils: George Perez; Inks: Scott Koblish These books are inter-related, with Earth 2 best read first; as its name implies, it’s setting up the alternate DC Earth that contains a modern-day version of the Justice Society. The first issue, though, focuses on death instead of birth: it shows a world where the only super-heroes who exist are Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman — plus a Supergirl, and a Robin who’s Batman’s daughter. That turns out not to be enough to … Continue reading
So we’re back in business, and now we’re taking on the number twos, which sounds weird to me, but I’m also a 12-year-old, so that makes it funnier. Before attacking the DC relaunch, we’re actually gunna hit up some other comics, including more #1′s, that are worth noting this week. Let’s do this! Legion of Monster #1 Writer: Dennis Hopeless Artist: Juan Doe I don’t know why I love this book. To put it simply, it’s a team-up monster comic that’s absolutely hilarious. It’s in the style of things like N.E.X.T.W.A.V.E. and it’s damn good, especially for a book with … Continue reading
Now it’s time for me to read some more old stuff and use excessive amounts of exclamation points!!! Let’s! Do! This! Fantastic Four #64 from 1967 This is a Kirby comic. There’s no better way to describe what comes from this issue. A combination of weird blocky robots, the Fantastic Four being fantastic, and the Inhumans lead to an exact representation of what Jack Kirby did for the medium. It has the main evidence of Kirby’s styles in the huge drawings of machinery, Kirby dots, and big splash pages of action. Not to mention that it’s a lot of fun. … Continue reading
