Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #259

Yet another week with lots of first issues; comics fans certainly can’t complain about a lack of new options this year!  Let’s start with Marvel, who are offering three brand-new titles (even though they’re all revivals…): She-Hulk #1 — Writer: Charles Soule;  Art: Javier Pulido This is a well-done first issue: it takes the best ideas from the character’s previous run (especially that she’s a lawyer specializing in superhero legislation, meaning her stories can involve practically anyone in the Marvel universe), adds a new wrinkle (she quits her job at her current law firm, and has to decide what to … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #72 by Dan!

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

The Latest and (Mostly) Greats #64 by Dan!

Hey guys! Two weeks in a row! Don’t worry, you’ll be sick of me about halfway through this thing. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #17 Writer: Tom Waltz Artist: Ben Bates I feel like I’ve said this a bunch of times, but IDW’s reboot of the TMNT franchise is phenomenal! And as a guy with just barely too much time on his hands, I’ve been watching the 80’s cartoon, and catching up to what’s going on here. Obviously, this is going to be a bit darker and more intense (only slightly less pizza) but updating these characters to work in a … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #51 by Dan!

Well folks, I’m back! It’s been another long week, full of wonderful comics, so here’s the best of the best. Let’s do this! Uncanny X-Force #26 Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Phil Noto With each issue, X-Force moves closer to the consistent quality of X-Factor as the best X-comic on the stands. There’s nothing here that you won’t like. Remender has a voice for every single one of the characters that works and helps build appropriate relationships based around what is going on. Fantomex and Psylocke have both quit, but of course they can’t actually get away. There’s a new Brotherhood … Continue reading
