All right folks, we all survived Free Comic Book Day! That’s why this is a little bit late, but the quality will be as great as ever! I slept for 10 hours, so… Let’s do this! Hawkeye #10 Writer: Matt Fraction Artist: Francesco Francavilla: Guys, let’s be totally honest here. Did anyone think that I wouldn’t pick this as my book of the week? I am obsessed with Francavilla, and putting him on what is easily the best Marvel book coming out right now makes this an almost perfect issue of Hawkeye. After an upsetting secondary character death, Fraction rewinds … Continue reading
All right folks, this week I’m going to try to talk about a couple books I haven’t really said much about. Here’s hoping it won’t become a rambling mess. But don’t worry, I’ll still complain about Captain America near the end. Let’s do this! Cable and X-Force #6 Writer: Dennis Hopeless Artist: Salvador Larroca This book started a bit slowly, but seems to have really figured itself out. Most recently, Colossus had turned himself in after all that stuff with the Phoenix Force, so now the team hopes to break him out… or do they? Hopeless has put together a … Continue reading
All right folks, we’re back! There’s a fair amount to cover this week. Let’s do this! Mara #2 Writer: Brian Wood Artist: Ming Doyle How to explain this comic… A strange future world where armies are still fighting, but everyone loves watching girls volleyball to the point that they are complete superstars. One star (our title character), has shined above the rest, but something isn’t quite right… this is the follow-up from the previous issue where everyone seems to think Mara is now cheating, and she is not taking it well. Doyle is drawing solid action scenes where everything makes … Continue reading
It’s Thanksgiving week; the holidays are in motion; you’re out with your loved ones, and I’m writing comic reviews. All is right in the world. Let’s do this! Captain America #1 Writer: Rick Remender Artist: John Romita This is a comic book. The more I think about it, that’s almost all I have to say about it. It’s about as generic as a Captain America book could possibly be. Remender may be building to something, but it feels like a slower burn than normal. We can’t forget that Romita Jr. doesn’t try as hard if he’s not doing creator-owned work. … Continue reading
Avengers Vs X-Men #12 (of 12) — Writer: Jason Aaron; Pencils: Adam Kubert; Inks: John Dell with Mark Morales and Adam Kubert This may not be the best book of the week, but it’s the best seller, and it’s been surprisingly good — partly because the last few Marvel events, especially Fear Itself, lowered expectations considerably. Aaron is a good choice for writer — he doesn’t have some of the stylistic tics in dialogue of a Bendis or a Fraction, so he doesn’t call attention to his writing, and lets the art and action speak for itself, while Kubert holds … Continue reading
