Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #1

Oct 7, 2014

Despite Dark Horses confusing release for this title, it seems to a decent start. All the exposition is out of the way, so hopefully the next book will allow Sebela and Olivetti to cut loose with some Alien and Predator action.

Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #3

Dec 2, 2014

Sadly, this latest installment in the mini-series fails to invoke the drama and horror one would expect from aliens and predators locked in their primal clash. Considering this is the next-to-last issue, most readers are already pot-committed. Lets hope this creative team can end on a high note with the finale.

Ant-Man #1

Jul 16, 2015

I went in with the lowest expectations possible and was pleasantly surprised. There really isnt anything inherently bad in Ant-Man, sure there are some clich moments, but the ride is so enjoyable it doesnt matter. This is by no means the best Marvel Studios film, but it definitely is not the worst. This installments is the last of Phase Two and one will find out why throughout. Definitely check this film out! As usual, the 3-D is not great, so seeing it in 2-D works just fine. If an IMAX screening is available – go to that theater. Oh and make sure to stay for everything, there are two post-credits sequences that are just awesome!

Batman Beyond (2015) #1

Jun 4, 2015

This isnt a perfect comic, but its a good start. Batman Beyond fans should give this title a chance and who knows, maybe Terry will appear; This is comics after all. Those who followed Futures End should pick this up as well since this is a direct follow-up. This creative has some work to do, but this title definitely has potential.

If not, wait until they are compiled, in print, in this book each month. With two options to be reading these great books, there's no reason why you shouldn't be picking them up!

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1

Dec 12, 2015

Overall, this comic feels uneven and a bit of a letdown, but perhaps this is due to my own high expectations. Batman and Gotham were shortchanged and this was very much a highlight for the Ninja Turtles, so fans of those characters will be happy. Enthusiasts of either franchise should give this first issue a shot, but just have expectations managed. Hopefully the next book will step-up to the plate.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #2

Jan 13, 2016

Again, this comic is uneven from start to finish. Readers who really enjoyed the first issue will probably continue to appreciate the material, but those on the fence should probably hop off. It doesnt look like this mini-series is going to improve much. Its really depressing because this event deserved better representation and story.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #3

Feb 11, 2016

Since this is a major crossover, it merits close scrutiny and appreciation. This series has been an uphill battle, but it is finally bearing fruit. The comic still has a long way to go to reach its maximum potential, hopefully it will be able to do so in the final two issues. With the cliffhanger Tynion left readers with, the story is definitely on the upswing and has great possibility. Those invested so far or are still intriguing by the concept/content, should continue giving it a shot. Readers should continue crossing their fingers; there is light at the end of the sewer tunnel.

Batman: Europa #1

This is definitely a solid book. The writing and artwork mesh well together and are well done. Whether the rest of the series will follow suit or not is left to be seen, but lets hope it does. It will be difficult to follow in Lees footsteps, but maybe the other three artists will bring their own talents that will complement the story. In the meantime, check out this premiere issue of Batman: Europa.

Some may havekept hoping after each issue that the material would get better, but, after concluding this final issue, things did not change. The previous mini-series were so poetic and beautiful; sadly, Captain America: White seems too little, too late. Its just a shadow or glimpse at some the amazing work these two have done. Completionists should pick this up though.This is a recommended series to someone new to Captain America or the work of Loeb and Sale because they can only go up after this series.

Once again, Deadly Class delivers brilliant material. Remender truly knows how voice teenagers and their problems and the art team delivers an impressively stylized 1988, but never loses sight of the reality of the characters and their conflicts. As dense a comic as this is, it makes clear what is necessary to be conveyed to readers. The ancillary elements are what makes the comic worth reading multiple times. This is another must-buy from Image Comics this month!

Detective Comics (2011) #27

Jan 9, 2014

This may be a long review, but this is an iconic issue and each narrative merits some attention. With so many Batman homage, references and Easter eggs, one can tell this book was crafted by people who truly care about the character and his mythos. Also worth mentioning is the great pinup art within the comic from various artists such as Kelly Jones, Graham Nolan and, my personal favorite, Jock. Detective Comics #27 is a must-buy! You know what,buy two copies, one to read and another to keep protected because this is one you will want to hold on to and re-read. Heres to adding another 75 years to the Dark Knight legend!

Doctor Strange (2015) #3

Dec 4, 2015

This issue of Doctor Strange maintains the lively tone that number one introduced. With his feature film debut on the horizon, nows a good time to jump on the mystical Marvel bandwagon. The two interpretations of the titular character will more than likely differ, but its always nice to have a primer or context. Aaron and Bachalo make the comic very accessible for newcomers and dont bog the plot down with continuity constraints. If wild and crazy is what you want, wild and crazy is what youll get!

It is possible to read this issue cold turkey, but, of course, having read previous ones is recommended. Making the book easily accessible to all readers is another welcome highlight. Perhaps most importantly, though, the comic continues to be entertaining. If youre already reading, keep moving forward with this series.

The nice thing aboutJustice League #28is that no prior knowledge of the story arc is needed; it would definitely help, but this can almost be considered a one-shot. It's a wonderful story that everyone can connect to. Definitely deserves a buy!

Justice League continues to earn its place as one of DC's major titles. Mahnke and Johns have worked together for some time now and their work shows the seamless understanding of what they want to show their readers. There are very few books out that I will sit down and read immediately after buying and with a Justice League film on the horizon, now's as good a time as any to start reading some of the source material.

Having three sets of artists on this comic was a genius move because they each suited their content extremely well. Also, their work was different, but similar enough where it doesnt break the flow of the book. All this makes the comic work on multiple levels and deliver another passionately made comic. This is an essential part of this powerful story arc and also fulfills that desire of not wanting this series to end.

The Men of Tomorrow continues to be a brilliant story arc for Superman and delivers on the premise of an iconic creative collaboration. Geoff and Johns talents and sensibilities mesh very well together and allow readers to truly immerse themselves in the narrative and relate to Superman, which has always been a problem. These guys make it look easy.

This isnt necessarily the strongest issue in the arc, but it still packs a punch. Its four issues in, so theres no reason to stop reading, nor should one do so. As gimmicky as this may sound, this is a creative powerhouse many thought would never happen, so its best to have a front row seat to this great ride.

Feb 5, 2015

It is a travesty that this creative team is only doing one story arc, whoever takes over will have deep shoes to fill! With only one issue left, those who have been reading should pick this up without a moments hesitation. Now, those who are just hearing about this, should try to pick up the back issues or wait for the trade. Honestly, though, dont wait for the tradethis a fantastic Superman narrative that should be absorbed ASAP.

This is the end of the storyline, so those who have been reading it have no reason not to. This was a well-crafted narrative with excellent imagery that captures the essence of the Kryptonian. Id recommend picking up the single issues to jump on this, but waiting for the trade isnt a bad option either.

Superman: American Alien #1

Nov 16, 2015

Landis definitely had a specific vision in mind for this story, but that doesnt always mean that the material is good. In this case, American Alien shows promise; Max has the talent and is worth giving a few issues to find his voice. Since there will be a new artist on every installment, there is opportunity for this series to find its sweet spot. Some readers will like this comic more than others, but Superman fans should take the time and give this title a shot.

Unfortunately, this was an extremely disappointing follow-up. Again, the idea makes sense on paper, but the execution just didnt carry it out properly. There is no doubt room for some great young Superman stories, but this comic should make people weary of Landis future work on this mini-series. One doesnt need to break the mold too much to tell a compelling, realistic story. Hopefully, issue three will take two steps forward from this.

Superman: American Alien #3

Jan 17, 2016

Landis has taken a step in the right direction with this issue of American Alien. Readers should still be wary because it is by no means perfect due to some lines and story beats that seem out of character and/or forced. All the easter eggs were a bit unnecessary as well; he doesnt have to try to establish his geek cred by name-dropping characters like Bobby Milestone because the plot and story should be enough to establish that. The cliffhanger of the issue is extremely promising and definitely clinches whether one should pick up issue four or not. Heres to keeping fingers crossed, hoping the book delivers on the promise! In the meantime, give this one a shot. Its nothing exemplary, but its a nice little Superman story.

The story content in this issue mainly gave an overall view of the impact the disease has made on the populace and what it's capable of. Even if this was a little monotonous at times, the concept and visuals kept the material riveting. The two investigators that are introduced are not specified as being either with the CDC or FBI, so some little details fall to the wayside, but hopefully as the plot progresses these elements will come to the forefront. The last page just leaves one in total confusion and begging to see what happens next.
