Now that's how you do comics. In this issue,King shows how much he has control over the flow and the pacing. Using the famous 9-panel grid, one of Watchen's narrative branda, Tom tells a story that is perfectly crafted and executed into the time barrier imposed by the story. I'm really trying not to enter the spoiler's zone, but it's almost impossible. So... Go read it. Probably one of the best i more

David Gabriel is a moron for saying Diversity is at fault for the Marvel Sales slump; that's not the case, that has never been the case -- I blame bad writing and events, and this comic is a perfect example of bad writing.

Do you want to buy a comic that is basically 22 pages of "How do you do, fellow kids" and "YASSS QUEEEN"? Then this comic is perfect for you -- it's also perfect if y more

Going back into the end of the New 52 volume, Abnett brings back the good note in which the last volume and shows it up again to the (possibly) new readers in a way that's perfectly comprehensible for them. The story develops smoothly and without rough turns or rushed pacing like the last issue. Bringing back the characters from the Dead Water arc is also a great idea, especially the scarred S more

5.0

Man-Thing by R.L. Stine sounded like an awesome idea. An incredibly succesful horror writer doing one of the flagship horror characters in the MU. Unfortunately, Stine's debut in comics lacks a lot of comic book-style story. He does not take advantage of the medium and the freedom it gives: The story is abruptly interrupted by a flashback, and although it began with an interesting idea, it boils d more

King's new story arc is definetly an improvement to the I am Suicide arc, and so does this issue. The parallels drawn between Batman and Bane really works alongside the story to give depth to the rivalry, as well as raise Bane to even more a threat. But the issue still fall in a recurring problem of this volume (and, being bold, of a lot of Batman's writers) that is the utter control of the plot a more

The greatest problem with this issue is the fact that it is a pretty rushed conclusion to a story arc. You get to know everything about Warhead's identity and arc in a feel pages of dialogue, jumping from 0 to 100 too fast to really feel the story flowing. It is, though, an interesting plot: Warhead's connection to two eastern powerhouses of old times (Bialya and Kahndaq) can be a good point to more
