Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #174

Lots and lots of books worth buying this week, kids, so don’t expect more than a sentence or two each on the later ones — and let’s get started: Casanova #1 — Writer: Matt Fraction;  Art: Gabriel Ba (plus a back-up story by Fabio Moon) The lead story’s four years old, but it was originally a 16-page, monocolored comic; now it’s been remastered (meaning recolored and relettered), with a backup story by Moon added, making it worthwhile even if you’re one of the few people who have the originals. It’s a superspy romp with tons of narrative tricks (Fraction lists … Continue reading

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

Shadowland #1 (of 5) — Writer: Andy Diggle;  Pencils: Billy Tan;  Inks: Batt This is the kickoff to yet another crossover event, one stretching over the next five months, although the only regular titles involved seem to be Daredevil and Thunderbolts (depressingly, there will be 18 “extra” books with “Shadowland” in the title that readers will be expected to buy too). 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 Wasn’t Very Awesome #2

And we’re back!  This was a lighter week, but don’t worry, I still found some mediocrity in there.  So let’s get to it! Justice League of America #46 Writer: James Robinson Artist: Mark Bagley Justice Society of America #40 Writer: Bill Willingham Artist: Jesus Merino This was rough.  I haven’t really liked anything about the Robinson-Bagley run so far.  It’s been a series of weird narration and what seems like half done Bagley art.  This is no exception.  I really do like Bagley, he’s on time, usually passable to look at, and fairly consistent, but that’s not what we’re getting … Continue reading
