Batman/Superman (2003) #72

May 24, 2010

To wrap up, Batman/Superman is a title that's definitely under the radar. Not to take anything away from The Flash or Brightest Day series, but this comic is definitely a gem. Hopefully the storyline can develop and reveal Lex Luthor's perversion of our hero.

Batman: Battle for the Cowl #3

May 24, 2009

Nonetheless, Battle for the Cowl #3 delivers a decent ending to an overall great series. Although the conclusion may not come as a surprise, all the followers of the series owes it to themselves to pick up this issue.

Batman: The Brave and the Bold #13

Feb 1, 2010

Although this issue provides some chuckles, I would like to see more original ideas. The concept of featuring different heroes impersonate has been done before. However, similar to issue twelve, Brave and The Bold is another straightforward and solid issue. However, innovative ideas should be considered in the future.

Booster Gold #20

May 25, 2009

Despite an interesting story, this issue does include a blemish. The problem reverts to the fact that nothing of importance occurs. This doesnt deter me from the comic. However, the absence of crucial information doesnt add an incentive to the reader either. Although it lacks new information Booster Gold #20 is a fun and clever read.

Booster Gold #24

Sep 14, 2009

In brief, Booster fans will enjoy Dan Jurgens' clever storytelling. Although there are a few hiccups in the artwork, this problem doesn't overpower the consistency of nice visuals these artists have provided.

Caped #2

May 18, 2009

All in all, Caped #2 is one of the most intriguing indie comics Ive read recently since Kick-Ass. Lobis and Moiselle deliver on an appealing but amusing comic. This book is sure to entertain anyone in search of a new comic series.

Caped #3

Jun 19, 2009

Nonetheless fans will laugh it up with Lobis and Moiselles work in Caped #3. However the pacing is half a step slower, due to unresolved questions involving Flexs actions from issue #2.

Caped #4

Jul 16, 2009

Caped has the potential to be a great series that parodies masked superheroes however, the lack of cleverness is hurting this issue.

Cla$$war: The Collected Edition #1

Nov 25, 2009

Without a doubt, Cla$$war is one of the greatest comics Ive ever come across. An amazing script and compelling graphics have me hooked. The comic book community truly owes it to themselves to pick up this title.

DC Universe Legacies #2

Jun 20, 2010

Though impressive, this comic features a slight flaw in some of Joe Kuberts unwarranted inking. Nonetheless, Legacies #2 is a collaborative effort that shines bright. Im truly curious to find out how the story will transition into contemporary times, and if the tone will become darker.

Doc Savage #3

Jun 14, 2010

Though Doc Savage has an arsenal of abilities, Paul Malmont isnt allowing the character to be challenged. And his squad of teammates remain uninspired, because the author hasnt developed their potential. Honestly, this book just isnt worth $3.99.

Farscape: Gone and Back #1

Aug 6, 2009

Nevertheless, Im recommending this exclusively to fans of the series. The art reveals glimpses of beauty and the writing is on par with the script of the television show.

First Wave #2

May 17, 2010

Truth be told, Firstwave #2 is a nice looking book with decent writing. Unfortunately, Batman fans must wait a little longer until their hero receives the spotlight in this miniseries.

Grandville #1

Nov 11, 2009

Overall, though, Grandville is nothing short of entertaining. The art and story telling are balanced, and Talbots use of anthropomorphic characters is great.

Green Arrow / Black Canary #19

Apr 27, 2009

All in all, unless you want to add to your Green Arrow collection, I suggest you skip this issue. Although the visuals and dialogue are respectable, this story falls short of providing excitement.

Green Arrow / Black Canary #20

Jun 1, 2009

Unfortunately Kreisberg and company are underachieving with Green Arrow/Black Canary #20. Please save your money and skim through this issue at your local comic shop.

Jonah Hex #43

Razorjack: The Collected Edition #1

Nov 25, 2009

Finally, the ending seems undeveloped and flat. Theres not enough supporting information to support the finale. All in all, though, Razorjack delivers a startling and entertaining experience with a few hiccups in the storytelling.

Sgt. Rock: The Lost Battalion #5

May 4, 2009

Sgt. Rock The Lost Battalion #5 includes some of the most appetizing visuals I have seen in a comic. Unfortunately, difficult to follow speech bubbles and extensive dialogue has dissuaded me from buying the sixth and final chapter to this series.

Teen Titans (2003) #70

May 9, 2009

At the end of the day, Teen Titans #70 is a visually impressive read with a lack of valuable information. Although the trade edition of the Death Trap mini-series may prove to be beneficial, this latest installment is not worth the money unless youre a diehard fan.

Teen Titans (2003) #79

Tiny Titans #16

May 29, 2009

Titanium Rain #1

Underground #1

Aug 20, 2009

At the end of the day, Underground executes one of the most realistic concepts Ive seen in a comic. This unique comic is certainly worth the money and it will be interesting to see how the next four issues of this mini-series progress.

Vigilante #5

Apr 20, 2009

All in all, Vigilante #5 is an above average read. Nothing spectacular occurs. But the information story is relevant. If youre a fan of the V man or your into the Teen Titans series, this is a must have.
