Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #454

So, I was too lazy to do a top-ten list for 2017, but if you’re interested you can do it for me: just go here , look for the “Archives” section over on the left, read all 52 of my weekly comics reviews for the year, and decide from that. I will say that Tom King, writer of both Mister Miracle and Batman, would have been the only creator with two books on the list, although Donny Cates (Redneck, Baby Teeth, God’s Country, Doctor Strange, Thanos), Kieron Gillen (The Wicked and the Divine, Star Wars: Captain Aphra, Uber) and Rich Tomasso … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #352

Secret Wars #9 (of 9) — Writer: Jonathan Hickman;  Art: Esad Ribic;  Colors: Ive Svorcina Finally! On its own merits (ignoring the lateness, the hundreds of pages of mini-series, etc.) this has been one of the better Marvel events; you can accuse Hickman of many things, but he’s always got a solid plot, and character through-lines that make sense, and he uses them here: at base, this has been a Fantastic Four story (the last for a while), stemming from Hickman’s long run on that title just before he took over the Avengers books, and it’s a good one, with … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #260

After all those weeks of DC 3-D books, let’s take a break from the Marvel and DC heroes, and look at all the cool comics published by other companies this week instead: Battling Boy Graphic Novel #1 — Writer/Artist: Paul Pope Pope’s art is like a fusion of Jack Kirby and Robert Crumb; he’s got all their crackling energy and sure lines, and straddles the divide between mainstream superheroics and underground anarchy just perfectly. He’ll work for a major company, but on his own terms (see the remarkable Batman: Year 100), but he’s always been happiest charting his own course, … Continue reading
