The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #24

All right folks, the X-men movie is out, and I haven’t seen it yet.  Do not spoil it for me… I warnin’ ya’!  Let’s do this! My Top 5 (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Secret Seven #1 Writer: Peter Milligan Artist: George Pérez This series is the exact kind of story that these mini series should be.  You draw in the classic people with Pérez art, you draw in the indie crowd with Hellblazer‘s Milligan and what you get is pure F-ing insanity.  There’s so much going on here, and it’s almost completely independent to the Flashpoint series … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #22

So it’s almost Free Comic Book Day.  Are you prepared? Are you SURE?  Well, here’s some reviews to settle you down before the brouhaha. My Top 5 (The 5 Best Comics of The Week) Moon Knight #1 Writer: Brian Michael Bendis Artist: Alex Maleev So here’s the deal.  I saw this and went “Wow! Maleev actually isn’t photo-referencing! This looks hand-drawn, but it doesn’t look quite right.”  Then a very aware customer (I’m lookin’ at you Jeff) says “You know, it’s a tribute style to Bill Sienkiewicz” and my mind was blown.  This book is absolutely great.  And the new … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #190

Jennifer Blood #1 (of 5?) — Writer: Garth Ennis;  Art: Adriana Batista A suburban housewife is also the Punisher — that’s the premise of this mini-series, one that Ennis says, in an interview in the back, is meant to be less “bleak,” and lighter in tone, than a lot of his recent work. Of course, as an example of “lighter,” he mentions Hitman, which had a body count higher than most W.W.II movies — so, too, with this book, which features our heroine going to the docks at night (after spiking her husband’s and kids’ bedtime drinks with Valium) to blow … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #14 By Dan!

I’m going to be completely honest with you people.  I am exhausted.  Add to that the fact that this was an especially light week and you’re gunna get the internet’s quickest, yet still strangely, awesome-est (not a word, I know) reviews! Let’s Do This! My Top Five (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Thor the Mighty Avenger #8 Writer: Roger Langridge Artist: Chris Samnee And with this, the best comic that none of you were actually reading comes to a close.  I don’t even know what to tell you guys.  This was probably one of the best books on … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #11 By Dan!

This was a shortened week, so forgive me for this rush.  Just means I’ll be cramming in sarcasm by the boatload! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Jonah Hex #62 Writers: Justin Gray Jimmy Palmiotti Artist: Eduardo Risso This issue was so very pretty.  Risso has his distinct style that just worked perfectly for this issue.  It’s amazing to me that it’s taken 62 issues for him to get involved in the Hex mythos.  Hell, it’s amazing that this title has lasted 62 issues.  But it’s been all about the writing team.  Gray and Palmiotti have … Continue reading
