Hawkeye #9 — Writer: Matt Fraction; Art: David Aja This continues, in its quiet little way, to be one of the best monthly comics out there — while it’s not like much happens this issue (a couple of the tracksuit Russian mobsters get beaten up, but otherwise the only major action occurs on the last page), it’s a perfect little glimpse into the life of its stubbornly adolescent hero and the five women in his life. Aja continues to be just the right artist for it, too: everyone’s immediately distinguishable, even with Fraction’s “no costumes on anyone” rule, and the … Continue reading
Green Lantern #17 — Writer: Geoff Johns; Art: Dan Jurgens, Phil Jimenez and Doug Mahnke Green Lantern Corps #17 — Writer: Peter Tomasi; Pencils: Fernando Pasarin; Inks: Scott Hanna Green Lantern: New Guardians #17 — Writer: Tony Bedard; Art: Aaron Kuder These are the first three parts of Johns’s final GL serial; he; and all the other creative teams, are leaving after that, so one expects that a number of threads involving the now-evil Guardians, the various colored rings, Black Hand and all manner of other subplots will get wrapped up. The “First Lantern,” the bad guy driving the plot, … Continue reading
OK, people, there were a ton of decent books this week — a holiday bounty partly because there will be only a handful for next week (although Amazing Spider-Man #700, and Avenging Spider-Man #15.1, the next chapter in the story after that, will both be out) — so let’s get to them. Marvel’s many relaunches lead the pack; I had my doubts about Marvel Now!, but have to admit that reshuffling the creative teams and starting from scratch led to (a) a lot of satisfying conclusions to the old runs, and (b) a lot of intriguing beginnings to the new … Continue reading
The Boys #72 — Writer: Garth Ennis; Art: Darick Robertson with Richard P. Clark The last issue of Ennis’s longest complete story since Preacher (he wrote more issues of Punisher, but that had no conclusion). Like Preacher, most of the action took place in the penultimate issue, leaving this one for codas, cleanup and relationship resolutions (at least, of those characters who are still alive), and while it’s hard to say much about it without spoilers, it’s nice to have Robertson back for the ending (although Russ Braun, who actually drew more issues, deserves at least a shout-out somewhere here), and … Continue reading
Daredevil #17 — Writer: Mark Waid; Art: Michael Allred Guest artist Allred puts this book at the top this week (although it doesn’t need a lot of help — the letters page mentions the three Eisner awards it won this year, for best writer, best continuing series and best single issue (#7), and also lists the great artists it’s had – the Riveras, Marcos Martin and Chris Samnee — so it’s been doing just fine, thanks). The story’s little more than treading water from last issue’s Matt/Foggy split — DD muses about an earlier case he and Nelson argued over … Continue reading
