Spider-Man #1

Spider-Man #1 — Writer: Brian Michael Bendis;  Art: Sara Pichelli;  Ink Assists: Gaetano Carlucci;  Colors: Justin Ponsor Amazing Spider-Man #7 — Writer: Dan Slott;  Art: Matteo Buffagni;  Colors: Marte Gracia Spidey #3 — Writer: Robbie Thompson;  Art: Nick Bradshaw;  Colors: Jim Campbell and Rachelle Rosenberg Three Spider-Man books in one week isn’t exactly a testament to Marvel’s shipping strategy, but at least they’re all very different.  Spider-Man is Miles Morales in the regular Marvel universe — and he’s one of only a couple people who even remember that there was any other universe, or a Secret Wars,  all because he … Continue reading

Green Lantern #48 coloring

Before we get to the reviews, let’s give a shout-out to DC this week: their new batch of alternative covers for their January issues involves a cool coloring-book-ready black-and-white style, perfect for both kids and adults to pick up some markers and try their hands at the profession of cartoon colorist; even if you’re the kind of fan who shudders at ruining a perfectly-collectable comic, you can always remove the special thicker-paper outer cover, because the book’s regular one is right underneath it — or, buy two copies, one to color and one to keep (then, encourage everyone else to … Continue reading

Green Arrow FE #1

So, the big news this week is that DC, who had so much success with their 3D cover promotion last September, is doing it again this year, with a few twists.  First, the covers are lenticular instead of 3D; that means, while they appear to have depth like the 3D covers, they actually have two scenes embedded in them, and if you tilt the cover back and forth you can toggle between them — so, for example, on the Green Arrow cover, one scene just shows Oliver Queen’s tombstone, but when you look from another angle his ghostly image appears … Continue reading

trillium 1

All right folks! we’re back. Lots of good stuff this week, so let’s do this! Dial H #15 Writer: China Mieville Artist: Alberto Ponticelli Welp, another one bites the dust! Like Demon Knights next week, this is the latest book to get the axe from DC. But holey moley!, does this thing go out with style. The increased price is to compensate for almost double the amount of story content and boy, do they throw a lot out here! The Dials themselves get fully explained, everyone has a proper motivation, the big villain gets his just comeuppance as strangely as … Continue reading
