The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #5 by Dan!

Quick and short week, so I’ll try to make this quick and short reviews.  We all know that’s not going to happen, but we’ve all got important things to do, so let’s speed this up! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Batman And Robin #14 Writer: Grant Morrison Artist: Frazer Irving Do you ever get tired of me telling you just how awesome Batman and Robin is?  Well I’m not sure I’ll be able to much longer with the changing creative team, so enjoy it while it lasts!  This issue, things continue building to a head … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #2 by Dan!

After some much needed post-San Diego Comic-Con rest, I’m back for a HUGE week of comics.  Lots to talk about, and plenty to say, so here we go! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Time Lincoln: Fists of Fuhrer #1 Writer/Artist: Fred Perry I cannot stress this enough: Time Lincoln is awesome.  If you have any problems with Abraham Lincoln firing a laser gun at winged nazis to help get Ben Franklin to save Albert Einstein, then we can’t be friends.  To think that this is one guy doing all the work (both story and art) is … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Read and Put Back #174

It looks like a “Dark DD” riff, sort of like DC’s Arsenal (but, sadly, without any dead-cat weapons or heroin use), involving DD, who’s now the leader of the Hand (don’t ask) against most of the NYC heroes, like … Continue reading

Stuff That Was Awesome #2

So even with a light week, there’s still plenty of stuff worth reading, and I’m here to tell you what it is! Flash #3 Writer: Geoff Johns Artist: Francis Manapul Oh man.  This Flash series has been some of the best stuff that I’ve read lately.  Very interesting ideas, new characters, and plenty of potential.  I’m not a very big fan of Manapul, but he is really cranking out his best material on this book.  Johns writes it as well as he can, and it’s clear he really enjoys it.  Even Eddie liked this, so I must be right! Secret … Continue reading
