Action Comics #894

Oct 28, 2010

This is truly one of the best character studies I've ever read in a comic. This is the sort of comic that you'll instantly want to re-read and revisit for years to come.

Action Comics Annual #13

Dec 4, 2010

The best DC annual that I've read in some time. I wish DC would do this more often for the Annuals: use them as an excuse for the title's usual creative team to do something different instead of calling up some B or C list creative team to do something underwhelming and unrelated.

Adventure Comics Vol. 2 #1

Aug 15, 2009

A lead feature that goes down easy, yet it is unfortunately paired with a weak back-up… Make no mistake, the main is good and expertly executed, but it's just a preview.

Agents Of Atlas Vol. 2 #4

May 8, 2009

Captain America's reasons for attacking Atlas are still weak at best. Sure it “makes sense,” but it doesn't have anything at all personal behind it. Furthermore, Cap is written terribly in this issue, coming across as an incredibly bland and even bumbling character. Cap fighting Atlas just looks absurd and it isn't convincing. Atlas is just doesn't fit in the central Marvel Universe, and as a result, you get unintentional comedy like Captain America getting sucked up by a flying saucer's tractor beam or Cap whining about a “Day the Earth Stood Still-esque” robot's arms hugging him too tightly. It just looks ridiculous and doesn't work in the slightest.The Bottom-Line: The 1958 side of the issue is lots of fun, but the modern day portion is a laughable mess. That said, this is still a relatively enjoyable issue in an incredibly unique title and the art is more gorgeous than ever. That said, considering how bad Cap was, I'm really not looking for

Agents Of Atlas Vol. 2 #5

May 22, 2009

A really fun comic. The Spider-Man/Atlas dynamic is no small amount of fun and the action sequences are definitely enjoyable. I'm really looking forward to the very logical conflict with Namor next issue. With Namor and Dark Reign, it makes a lot of sense. That said, with this issue, I can't overstate how much I missed having a 1958 story. I feel like the comic, while still having the same great characters, has lost a part of what made it special.

Agents Of Atlas Vol. 2 #6

Jun 6, 2009

Agents of Atlas #6 is a much more nuanced, subtle issue. Which isn't a bad thing. Certainly, a more intelligent story is the best way to get readers to accept a simpler creative method (one artist and one story instead of two of each).

Avengers Vs. X-Men #0

Mar 28, 2012

Well, it really did nothing at all to set up AVX, so this issue didn't really do what it was meant to and may, to some, even feel pointless as a result. Aaron's Hope story is also a bit dull, even if it picks up at the end. That said, the art is gorgeous and Bendis' Scarlet Witch story is absolute dynamite, delivering in spades in action, bombasity, and soap opera drama.

From aplotperspective, this issue is a waste of time. Nothing moves the major conflict forward, and there are just too many damnedminor issues going on at once. However, if you are a Jack of Fables readeror are looking to be one, skip this issue. I've never said this before. Skip it. You don't want to see Jack as a rapist, as it will ruinthe character for you.

Jul 20, 2012

A mediocre, poorly developed script meets art that's merely passable. I have a feeling that Hickman's Fantastic Four/FF work post-Fantastic Four #604 (when Hickman wanted to end his run, but for Marvel's insistence) will be treated much like Rucka's final arc, “Cutter”, on Batwoman's Detective Comics. That is, it'll probably end up being largely overlooked and forgotten. Well, hopefully with the exception of that awesome “Ben Grimm in the future” done-in-one one and the hilarious “Annihilus on the toilet” issue of FF.

Invincible Iron Man #522

Aug 2, 2012

Another very solid outing for one of Marvel's best series, even if it is a bit guilty of being a chapter in a trade paperback more than an issue in an ongoing series. Still, lots of cool stuff here.

This is a very different sort of Bendis book with fantastic artwork. The difference between last issue and this one, however, is the addition of that fantastic new guest star, which raises the book to another level.

The Literals #1

May 4, 2009

Writing-wise, my only niggling concern is just how necessary this whole crossover is. Right now, there are just too many disparate elements, which leads to some things being left forgotten on the backburner. The Jack Frost segment was just weird and out of place and needs to be made relevant FAST. Also, having Kevin Thorn and Mister Dark as adversaries at the same time is just odd, as focusing on one leads to the other's being forgotten, and the existence of one threatens to dilute the threat of the other. It seems the comic has chosen to focus more on Thorn, but that leaves Dark as the elephant in the room, and it's awkward. For instance, Bigby is revealed to become more feral when in the same state as Mister Dark. This issue, he's right in New York City but experiences no difficulties whatsoever. Huh?The Bottom-line: Despite my nagging, as an individual issue, this is fantastic. It's witty, funny, and clever as all hell and it's Mark Buckingham drawing. As a Fab

The Not So Good: This is an amazing book and there's really nothing lackluster here at all. If I really, really tried to find something to whine about, I suppose three or four of the smaller panels looked a little rushed.: A concept like no other, solid artwork, and writing that is intelligent idea-wise and impressive in technical execution, this is a comic not to be missed and this is a perfect first issue. It is just astonishingly good. Vertigo potentially has a big hit on its hands here. It's also only $1.00 for this double-sized issue, so you really have absolutely no excuse not to give it a shot. One issue in and for me, this is already the best new series of 2009. Buy this book!

Unknown Soldier #21

Jul 6, 2010

A really great idea that needed a little more breathing room. I guess I just wanted more.

I have to dock points for just how crammed and rushed this is, but Dysart's success under these circumstances wins out.

Venom (2011) #3

May 28, 2011

Gotta be honest – it's a bit of a letdown compared to the last two issues. Still a really strong book, however, and not one that I'd stop recommending.

Another solid outing for Venom and the Savage Six. The artwork, while not at all bad, is a bit forgettable, but otherwise, you'll find much of what you enjoy about this book in these pages.

Winter Soldier #11

Oct 1, 2012

As is the usually the case with Winter Soldier, it's really not a question of what's good and what's bad, but more one of simply “how good?” While it may not be the loudest book in Marvel's line-up, it's been nothing less than solid for 11 issues now and once again, I find myself with nothing to really complain about.

Wolverine (2010) #4

Dec 17, 2010

While I feel that there's only so high I can grade a book whose greatest strength, and majority of content, is action sequences, this was a really fun ride in an arc I've had mixed feelings about thus far.

While Jason Aaron's talent is apparent, it's ultimately pretty misdirected here. If you're not a completionist, this is pretty skippable.

It's action-heavy and not particularly revelatory, groundbreaking, or emotionally evocative, but I cannot deny that this was a really fun comic that sees Jason Aaron clearly operating within his comfort zone.

Wolverine (2010) #302

Mar 10, 2012

Don't get me wrong, for everything I've said, this is not an unenjoyable read. It's the equivalent of a light, breezy beach read of a novel (albeit with stabbing). It's just strange that Aaron would end on such a simplistic arc. Furthermore, it's hard to wholly enjoy an action heavy “fun” comic when one of the artists isn't quite up to the task, as comics like this one often rely on the artist to do the heavy-lifting.

Honestly, this issue is a showcase of all the downsides of "the event tie-in issue." On the plus side, it has that sweet, sweet Nick Bradshaw artwork.

I can't go into much more detail without spoiling this issue's laughs, so I won't. Suffice it to say, when I finished reading this, I realized that my face was literally sore because I had apparently been smiling the entire time.

Wolverine: Weapon X #2

May 21, 2009

Right now, this is probably the best Wolverine comic on the stands, and at issue #2, the most accessible. With tThat said, fans of Aaron's breakthrough “Scalped” will also find a lot to love. In Logan's rough demeanor and alcohol-swilling ways, the ties are quite clear and it's more obvious than ever that Jason Aaron was the right man for this job.
