The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #49 by Dan!

What’s this?! Two weeks in a row!? How dare I… Yup that’s right, Phil’s out this week, so you’re getting a good-ol’ fashioned double-dose of Dan. Let’s do this! Fury Max #2 Writer: Garth Ennis Artist: Goran Parlov Hey! Remember all those reasons you like Garth Ennis comics? And remember how you think when he resorts to fart jokes you find yourself just a little disappointed cuz’ you know he can do better? Well, this right here is where he does better. It’s Ennis telling a straight-up war story, with Nick Fury acting as any of a million different war characters you’ve … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #45 by Dan!

Another day another dollar, and there are lots of dollars worth of comics that came out this week. So let’s do this! Batman #7 Writer: Scott Snyder Artist: Greg Capullo This is the best comic of the DC reboot. It’s moving along at it’s own pace; it’s doing it’s own thing, and it’s completely accessible to a new reader. Oh!… and it’s totally awesome! This story seems to be crafted out of the previous Gates of Gotham series, but you don’t even have to read that to understand what’s going on. There’s a section that is almost exactly the same … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #214

Daredevil #8 — Writer: Mark Waid;  Art: Kano DD continues to be a bright spot among the Marvel books — literally, since its pages are splashed with lots of reds, blues and other primary colors. That gives it a unique look (even when a different artist is drawing it, as here, although Kano turns out to be a good match for the previous pencillers), and suits its sunny, optimistic stories. This issue, the second part of a crossover with Amazing Spider-Man, features Spidey, DD and the Black Cat battling bad guys (and sometimes each other), and ends with an intriguing … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #208

Fables #110 — Writer: Bill Willingham;  Pencils: Mark Buckingham; Inks: Steve Leialoha and Shawn McManus This is just a normal issue of this book, by the normal creators — but it’s a good example of its charms: the monkey Bufkin and his allies are in the Land of Oz, fermenting revolution against the evil emperor Roquat, while in the land of the now-dead North Wind Bigby, Snow White and their children are facing down the other winds, and trying to decide which of the kids will take over as the new replacement avatar; meanwhile, in Mr. Dark’s old palace, the … Continue reading

Fresh Eyes on Old Books #33 by Dan!

All right folks, I’m back. I’ve got nothing fancy to say and I don’t want to ramble. I’ll save that for the actual reviews. Let’s do this! Teen Titans #10 from 1967 So here’s my problem with the Teen Titans in a nutshell. This comic has them fighting a bully. Robin gets invited to participate in a motorcycle race in a ghost town (not kidding), but this one guy is a big jerk and tries to ruin the race. It’s essentially Wacky Races, with the bad dude as Snidley Whiplash and everyone else as Penelope Pitstop (how obscure was that … Continue reading
