Abe Sapien #1

Apr 4, 2013

Overall, the Abe Sapien series is off to a good start. The story is slowlyestablishedwith quite a few things being hinted at. Vampires look to be in the mix. Abe is easily one of the best characters of the B.P.R.D. universe, I'll be looking forward to the next installment.

Abe Sapien #2

Overall, the second installment of Abe Sapien shows us all the great things this title is made of. Atmospheric, goodwriting,scary looking monsters, and above allelseone of the finest comic protagonists. With this issue I can safely say this series is something youshoulddefinitelybecheckingout.

Abe Sapien #3

Jun 5, 2013

Overall, another very good installment starring everyone's favorite Hellboy supporting character. The battle with the Priest is amazingly done, and is packed with some great art and storytelling. I am very eager to see where our protagonist goes from here.

Abe Sapien #4

Jul 3, 2013

Overall, Abe Sapien is back for another great issue. Those looking for action may be disappointed, but the dialogue doesn't fail. This is one of the best written comics I've read in awhile. Even if you're not into Hellboy or B.P.R.D., I recommend giving this series a shot.

Abe Sapien #5

Aug 6, 2013

Overall, a solid issue of Abe Sapien. Action is light, but the dialogue is strong. It's kind of a sci-fi murder mystery, so many should find it entertaining. It's almost time for some big action pieces however.

Age of Ultron #1

Mar 6, 2013

AGE OF ULTRON #1 is fantastic opening establishing anapocalypticMarvel world. The writing is great, so is the art. While the title robot doesn'ttechnicallyappear, he has a very strongpresence.It takes some top notch writing to accomplish that. I have a feeling this could be the Marvel event to surpass Civil War. Of course, Fear Itself also had an amazing start, but we saw where that went. I don't have too muchskepticismhowever, this is an Ultron story after all. Nine issues to go people, the fun is just getting started.

Age of Ultron #2

Mar 13, 2013

Overall, the secondinstallmentof Age of Ultron further establishes the title villain as the mostsinisterthreattheMarveluniverse has ever faced. It's a very grounded issue. I am expecting some robot action next time however, can't keep the main reason why a lot of people are reading it under wraps too long.

Age of Ultron #3

Mar 28, 2013

Overall, another solid installment in the Age of Ultron event. It is losing its touch however, due to its lack of Ultron and action. It's still a great read, but I am hoping it becomes more explosive with the next issue. The ending is quite the interesting plot twist, we'll see where that goes.

Age of Ultron #4

Apr 4, 2013

Overall, AGE OF ULTRON continues to be a very intriguing event. This issue does answer some questions, but also provides even more build-up. Sadly the title robot doesn't make an appearance, this must change in the next one. There's a pretty surprising casualty and the ending will get you thinking. The next installment should be hopefully the big one.

Age of Ultron #5

Apr 10, 2013

Overall, another solid issue in the AGE OF ULTRON event. It's not action heavy and once again the title robot does not appear, which may put off some people. I found it to be quite an engaging read however. There's a certain desperateness with the heroes, you can see and feel it. With the plan to get Ultron in motion, I am however expecting these next five issues to be filled with excitementand Ultron action. The ball is in Marvel's court, we've had five issues building up to this point, it's time todeliver.

Age of Ultron #6

Apr 18, 2013

Overall, this is definitely the biggest issue of AGE OF ULTRON yet, which is thanks to the controversial ending. Without the latter, then there wouldn't be too much to say about the comic. Ultron doesn't appear yet again, and we're halfway through. For two years we've waiting for his big return, so in that this event is turning into a disappointment. Still, things havechangedand the next issue will be very intriguing.

Age of Ultron #7

May 4, 2013

Overall, the most disappointing issue of Age of Ultron. I'm truly beginning to think this event is just using a popularAvengers'villain on thetitleto tell a story that's not about him, but about changing the Marvel Universe. With just threeissuesto go, I'm not sure anymore. It's kinda disappointing whenthehighlight of an event issue is seeing a TyrannosaurusRex attempt to chomp on the two heroes. I'm truly hoping thesefinalfew issues will squeeze in enough Ultron action to make up for all this.

Age of Ultron #8

May 18, 2013

Overall, the eighth Age of Ultron installment isn't exactly the worst issue, that'd be the previous one. It's just disappointing because the Ultron conflict is pushed to the side in favor of this alternate timeline thing. Sadly with just two issues left, it's pretty much too late to start delivering the reason why this story exists in the first place.

Age of Ultron #9

Jun 8, 2013

Overall, at this point Age of Ultron is beyond repair. What should have been a really good issue is washed away with dialogue talking about what Pym should do about the Ultron situation. Supposedly the next one will be an ‘epic conclusion.' It's going to have to put a strong emphasis on ‘epic' if it's going to save the event.

Age of Ultron #10

Jun 21, 2013

Overall, despite 9 issues of buildup, AGE OF ULTRON #10 doesn't live up to the hype. It's horribly anti-climactic and for the title antagonist, he deserved more than his few pages of screen time. The secretive ending turned out to really be nothing other than saying “Look what's coming up in the Marvel universe!” Truthfully speaking, this will forever be known as the most disappointing event in Marvel history.

B.P.R.D.: Hell On Earth #106

Overall, a solid issue of B.P.R.D. It's not quite as awesome as the first part of A Cold Day in Hell, but it's still fun. Giarcco is an enjoyablecharacterand the dialogue is often funny. The action is good…and the only thing really hurting the comic is the lack of the main antagonist, but you should be reading the series nonetheless.

Before Watchmen: Rorschach #1

Aug 19, 2012

Overall, Before Watchmen: Rorschach #1 is a worthy title with the Watchmen name. It's a little disappointing if you're expecting revelations from Rorschach and the Watchmen world around him, but if you want simply a Rorschach mystery, this comic will satisfy.

Before Watchmen: Rorschach #2

Oct 3, 2012

Before Watchmen: Rorschach #3

Despite being more of a general story than a personal one, it's a fun tale in the Watchmen universe starring the best (opinion of course) character.

Clone #1

Overall, Clone #2 demonstrates how to continue the story and keeping the reader invested. There's a surprising amount of answers to Issue #1′s questions, but there's also some interesting new developments. Foss continues to be the best character, and Patrick is still a pretty solid antagonist. With a pretty awesomeending, you can bet I'll be back for Issue #3. (And the fact that this series is $2.99 an issue is a great bonus.)

You need to be reading Clone.

Deadworld: War of the Dead #1

Aug 1, 2012

Overall, this is one gritty and cool first issue. New readers can easily jump in thanks to the introduction. Great story, interesting characters, and there's lot of zombie action. (The final act has some really good fighting between the humans and undead, lots of decapitations.) For people that want more zombie action after the recently finished Rebel Blood, looking for undead stuff other than The Walking Dead, or just looking for a good comic with zombies in it, you'll definitely want to give the first issue of Deadworld: War of the Dead a go.

Overall, a disappointing conclusion to War of the Dead. It doesn't really end. If there's no sequel, you're going to feel a littlecheated since the story is not resolved. The majority of the main characters do not get an adequate ending, really only Donna is given development. Still, it's a very good issue, don't get me wrong. Just not the satisfying conclusion I was expecting.

Debris #1

Jul 25, 2012

Overall, it looks like we have another great mini-series from Image. I love these kind of storylines where the heroes have basically lost and are trying to survive. Add in these giant robotic dragon things, we have a pretty good comic in our hands. Plus Maya is a nice focus, isn't generic, and I wouldn't mind reading stories with her for awhile. Of coursethis being a mini-series, only four issues. So it's not even a huge investment on your part, all the more reason to pick up Issue #1 of what could be one of the best mini-series of the year.

If you haven't been reading Debris, I strongly recommend you give the trade paperback a shot when it releases.

Frankenstein Alive, Alive! #2

Nov 21, 2012

Overall, a truly great comic for longtime fans of the monster. It's a rather simple story about a creature whom has awakened realizing his plot to destroy himself had failed, but finding he is in good company. Of course, things just can't work out for this guy, as you'll see in the ending. So go ahead fans of Universal Monster movies, the book, or if you're looking to read about Frankensteinwithout having readthe old book, give Alive, Alive! #2 a read.

Furious #1

Jan 28, 2014

Like I said, Furious wants to take the big thematic bite. I'm just worried that it will start choking as it tries to digest it, having chewed far too quickly before swallowing. And yet a big theme can make the dinner party if served just right. Glass and Santos know how to craft comics, their work on Mice Templar proves that without a doubt. But even the best chefs sometimes over-salt a new recipe before they get it right.

Godzilla #3

Jul 25, 2012

Overall, a pretty solid third installment in this series. It's still lacking that ‘punch,' but this issue seems to be winding up for the epic blow that will hopefullybe Issue #4. (Rodan vs. Titanosaurus, are you ready?!) Sadly monsters like Kumonga are offed in a few panels, so get ready for your inner kaiju to cry foul at making a bunch of hunters able to beat these guys. Well, it appears this series is improving somewhat, I eagerly await the next issue which could very well have the greatest battle in comics this year.

Godzilla #4

Aug 29, 2012

Overall, I'm sad to say that this is the most disappointing issue yet. The fight we're all waiting for is not even half the comic. Boxer is really getting on my nerves now, just a guy you want to punch. I'm sorry, his gruff demeanor has gone to the point where I can call him a jerk. (Maybe that was the purpose.) The forth issue in this series gets yet again the same rating, average.

Godzilla #5

Sep 19, 2012

Overall, another average issue. It wasn't bad, but sometimes this is barely a Godzilla story. The title monster literally has no purpose as he walks through Tokyo. We have another disappointing debut from a fan favorite monster. (Or rather robot.) In the end, nothing major was truly accomplished other than the ending where you're going to go, “The heck is she talking about?” It made me intrigued for the next issue. Let's when hope when Mothra comes next month things get better.

Godzilla #7

Nov 28, 2012

Overall, I'm very sad to say instead of going forward in quality, it went backward. Issue #6 was a really good one, but #7 is like #5, it doesn't feel like anything big happens. The stuff we want to see, (Mothra, the Cosmos, SpaceGodzilla) is not here, instead we have to watch a bunch of under-fleshedout characters try in vain to destroy Godzilla. I sincerely hope the next one will bring this series into what looks to be an exciting final act.

Overall, GODZILLA #8 is what I would call a Godzilla comic. The writing is strong, stronger than it has ever been. Big things happen with the humans, and there's plenty of monster action. Godzilla is portrayed wonderfully, and the long awaited invasion of the space monsters has begun, and it's awesome. This is a great setup issue with some payoff. You can count me extremely excited for what comes next, the final arc of this series looks to be one of the best!

Godzilla #9

Jan 22, 2013

Overall, GODZILLA #9 is generally unexciting followup to the best issue in the series. The focus is set primarily on Boxer and friends with this horribly written old guy. The Space Monsters do get some fine destruction scenes, and Godzilla looks great. We also learn just exactly what Dr. Pohl's people had planned for the monsters on Monster Island. So this issue wasn't a total disappointment, but lacking. Still, the coming installments look to be the most epic things to grace the comics pages.

The art is great, the monsters take center stage, and there's a lot of “Aww yeah” moments throughout. By the end, you're all set for #11. Now this is Godzilla, folks.

The fights are spaced out well enough, (the SpaceGodzilla one might have been a tad shorter than what it should have been, considering the fact that Battra is on par with Godzilla in thiscontinuity)and it's just fun.

Godzilla #13

Jul 9, 2013

Overall, IDW's GODZILLA goes out nicely. I can't say these past few issues made up for the average earlier issues, but in the end it's a good enough story featuring the most awesome monsters in history. This issue has Keizer Ghidorah, the most powerful of Ghidorahs, take on Godzilla for a very climatic fight. With a cool appearance by Rodan, there's plenty to like. I can't say I was ever impressed with Boxer during these past 12 issues, and his ending here didn't help matters. But, it's still a solid read.

Godzilla in Hell #1

Jul 15, 2015

“GODZILLA IN HELL” is off to an intriguing start. We're not given any reason why G has entered the Lake of Fire, and I suppose that's the mystery which will be looked at in coming issues. So I won't count this unanswered question a negative. No human characters offers a fresh change of pace, since I think everyone has wondered what a Godzilla moviewould be like with no humans. Stokoe's art easily engages the reader from start to finish. What we have could very well go down as the most unique Godzilla tale of them all.

Godzilla in Hell #2

Overall, Godzilla's second issue into Hell is an engaging read from beginning to end. If Alex Ross is the painter of superheroes, Eggleton is the painter of giant monsters. Every page is fantastic to look at. Truly, the art is a masterpiece. The issue still presents the story in rather vague terms, and feels like we're almost getting something half the price of $4 since the issue can literally be read in less than eight minutes. Still, as a Godzilla fan, this is a must-have.

Godzilla in Hell #3

Sep 29, 2015

Overall, GODZILLA IN HELLcontinues to be the strangest thing related to the King of Monsters ever. We finally understand why G's been sent to the underworld, and quite an opening act it was. What happens afterward takes the story to some strange corners as the angels are portrayed as almost as antagonistic as the demons, which is a grave shame. Still, it shall be interesting to see what happens next month.

Godzilla in Hell #4

Oct 22, 2015

Overall, GODZILLA IN HELL #4 is a relatively simple comic…and that's the problem. It's supposed to be in-linewith the previous three issues, but comes off as confusing. It's a battle, and nothing really surrounding it. Still, it's fun since the characters involved are these guys. And I have to give credit for the story delivering one of the most intense scenes I've ever seen in anything Godzilla related. (If that was in a movie, it would be quite a “whoa” moment.) Hopefully the conclusion can somehow tie all this madness together.

Godzilla: Cataclysm #1

Aug 12, 2014

Overall, Cataclysm has a solid start. Not many surprising things happen; it unfolds just as you would expect it to. The concept is quite engaging, it's just that it has been played with a lot in the past. The characters aren't bad, and the monsters are pretty exciting to watch. The art is a little bland, or rather the choice of coloring. Still, Cataclysm is a good comic for both old and longtime fans.

So far the only character who is mildly interesting is Hiroshi, hopefully that changes in the next issue.

Overall, an interesting but kind of uneventful issue. Things do happen, such as the Meganulon swarm, but it just feels dull. The characters aren't that engaging, and the other humans are pretty jarring. The lack of monster action greatly shows. Still, it deepens the backlstory and I'll be looking forward to reading the next installment.

Godzilla: Cataclysm #4

Nov 18, 2014

Godzilla: Cataclysm #5

Dec 19, 2014

Overall, Cataclysm ends with an exciting final battle, but the story itself is left unsatisfied. By the end, the reader is wondering…”So what now?” There's too much exposition crammed into this issue trying to make sense of everything that is happening. The characters are forgetful and besides Hiroshi, none play a vital role here. While Cataclysm is not the best Godzilla mini-series, it's still definitely worth a read.

Godzilla: Half-Century War #1

Aug 8, 2012

Overall, a good start to The Half Century War. It's great how they're using Godzilla's original attack as the backdrop. While the writing leaves a little to be desired, it isn't cringe worthy like some of the earlier Kingdom of Monsters issues. We also get the best drawn Godzilla ever, this mini-series has a lot of potential.

Godzilla: Half-Century War #2

Sep 19, 2012

Overall, this is one of the best Godzilla comics IDW has released thus far. It understands Godzilla, gives a fierce/tough Anguirus, and contains a highly detailed fight. Not to mention it has a likable main character. I eagerly await the next issue with the Smog Monster, Hedorah. This will definitely be the series I recommend to people that have never read a Godzilla comic.

Godzilla: Half-Century War #3

Oct 18, 2012

Overall, another fantastic entry in the Half Century War. Lots of satisfying monster action, (including some whom are their first appearance in the comic world!) and the humans are pretty fun for the most part. Stokoe really understands what Godzilla is and just how powerful he and his kaiju brethren are, it's good to see these guys being the unstoppable things they are. (Which the Ongoing doesn't seem to get.) While not as good as Issue #2, #3 of the Half Century War is another great comic featuring some of the coolest monsters in existence. (Andif a comic can make even Megalon cool, you know you have a winner.)

Godzilla: Half-Century War #4

Jan 1, 2013

Overall, the Half CenturyWar once again doesn't fail to be a great comic both longtime Godzilla fans and new readers could enjoy. The King hasn't been written like this since Gangsters and Goliaths, another great mini-series. We get to see Spacegodzilla use his his rather odd powers, such as telekinesis on Godzilla, the battle doesn't disappoint. Even Mechagodzilla gets some great page-time, fighting Godzilla and even helping out in the final battle. Oh, and the ending is truly cool, a nice homage to one of the films. You can bet the final issue of the Half Century Warwill be a fine closure to this epic mini-series.

Overall, a great finisher to the Half Century War saga. I'm disappointed we'll no longer be seeing this version of Godzilla, it was the best portrayal of G IDW has given us. The fights in this comic are fantastic, and…Dimension Tide, the black hole shooter from Godzilla vs. Megaguirus, is used. The ending is awesome, andaltogetherthis will make one killer trade paperback for any fan, or if you want to introduce someone to Godzilla through the comic medium. Either way, The Half Century War will never be forgotten.

Godzilla: Oblivion #1

Mar 29, 2016

Overall, GODZILLA: OBLIVION starts out with an interesting first issue. It's not the greatest G comic and that's due to average characters and the artwork being more on the mixed side. Still, the concept is executed nicely, makings sure it's interesting enough to bring back the reader. Whether or not this will be as good as any of the prior mini-series remains to be seen.

Godzilla: Rulers Of Earth #1

Jun 25, 2013

Overall, Rulers Earth starts out nicely with everything we love about Godzilla. The fun atmosphere will be sure to appeal to everyone, and there's some really good monster action. Zilla, love or hate him, has never looked better. With a classic subplot straight out of one of the movies coming, it's safe to say this series is going to get big. And not to mention some of the Easter Eggs fans will pick up, such as a model of the Gotengo and a pic of Gorosaurus. Godzilla is back with what looks to be his best comic series yet.

Godzilla: Rulers Of Earth #2

Aug 5, 2013

Overall, Rulers of Earth #2 is the definitely the most fun comic you'll read this week. The battle between Godzilla and Zilla is amazingly done. Since it's pretty much one-sided, you're going to wonder how it was pulled off, but it's handled very well. Characters are a bit weak, but nothing bad. It's a fun story that can be enjoyed by all ages, Godzilla fans, and newcomers.

Overall, this is definitely an issue I especially see newcomers to the franchise liking a lot. It features plenty of soldier vs. kaiju action, which can either be a really dull or pretty cool thing. It's the latter, the story perfectly balances human dialogue and action. The plot is moving along nicely, with the the aliens taking center stage. With plenty of things being set up for coming issues, you can bet it's going to remain exciting. Next month: Dawn of Destoroyah!

Lucy is proving to be just as good as a protagonist as Steven Woods, I'm looking forward to seeing more with her. The Gargantuas also get to appear, somehow their appearance works in-between all the madness While the story doesn't actually develop much, it's still a solid issue.

Overall, this was a really great issue of Rulers of Earth. There's some fantastic, even gritty monster action. Some fans were disappointed when Showa Gigan was replaced with his Milliemum design, but I can tell you that Final Wars Gigan doesn't disappoint. He actually steals the spotlight from almost everyone! Orga is a welcome addition, and looks pretty cool throughout. With a great ending, it doesn't look like Rulers of Earth will be slowing down anytime soon.

The monsters have never looked so expressive, so hats off to Matt Frank. Jet Jaguar's big appearance doesn't disappoint, I can't wait to see more of him. (And it looks like we'll getting that in the next issue!) Volume 1 of this series just released too, so I recommend checking it out if you haven't been reading the book!

Overall, Issue #8 is solid. The fight between Godzilla and Biollante is really fun despite the rather anti-climatic ending to it. The Devonians have become petty good antagonists for the book. Sadly it isn't the ‘big' issue the description would have you believe. Jet Jaguar at least has some fun scenes, despite what people might say I think he's a great addition to the story. So while not the best issue, it's still a good read.

The ‘new' monsters don't really do anything, but the King Caesar/Megalon fight was handled pretty well. While not the best issue, it's another solid one furthering the story.

One could replace him with Gezora or Manda and it wouldn't have made a difference. The battle between SpaceGodzilla and Gigan does have some very cool (and brutal) scenes, but the rest of it isn't one of the better drawn fights.

However, if you have no interest in the character whatsoever, there's really no reason to jump in.

Jan 23, 2013

Overall, another great issue of The Lone Ranger. Each of the major characters, the Ranger, Tonto, Rebecca the Chief, all get insightful scenes. This book is one of the best on the stands, for it doesn't rely on big action sequences, but on its story. Native Ground is over, I look forward to seeing what comes next.

Lone Ranger Vol. 2 #13

Feb 27, 2013

Overall, at its core, this is astandaloneLone Ranger and Tonto story. It'sbeautifullyengaging as we root for the Ranger, he's one of thosecharactersthat is never truly subject to change like certain other ‘superior' heroes. It's a simple issue, but the story itself is anything but. It's quite vile how the women are being used, so it's not exactly a very ‘light' thing either. It's a perfectbalanceof story and Ranger action that can be enjoyed by all readers. Like I said in the first paragraph, pick up this comic, it's one of the best I've read in awhile. (Nice ending too.)

Aside from the great concept of putting the two characters in an urban area, this issue has a really engaging flashback of the Ranger's past and some pretty satisfying action. I've said this before, but it should be said again. You need to be reading The Lone Ranger.

Overall, another great issue of The Lone Ranger. The story is engaging right from the start, (and it's a violent one) and the writing is fantastic. If no one thinks the Ranger and Tonto are as good characters as Superman or Iron Man, they should givr this issue a read. You should consider putting it on your pull list, there are very few comics like The Lone Ranger.

Overall, MASKS #2 is a great follow up to the perfectfirst issue. It continues to be a very fun story starring these characters while at the same time making the reader think. As some people are getting led out to be hanged, one cries out “They mean to murder us!” Then a trooper replies “It ain't murder if it's the law doing it.” So basically if the law says murder is okay, guess what? It's not a crime. It's trulya great dynamic and one of the reasons why MASKS is being such a good read.

Nov 21, 2012

The art is pretty strong once again, with the highlight being the veryfirst page. It's just stunning, so a tip of the hat to artistRodin Esquejo. Both the cover and variant are pretty good, with the former one being more striking in terms of the story. The most interesting part is the dialogue between Elle's mom and the doctor. It's all vague stuff, but interesting nonetheless. Hopefully we'll get a big payoff soon. The ending also is something readers whom have been reading since squareone will find intriguing.Overall, a pretty strong issue of Mind the Gap. The writing is at its strongest, some really intense stuff going on. Technically not really much is revealed, but it grabs your attention and doesn't let it waver. And it's not a bad way to jump on if you've missed the first five issues, things look to get more intense as Mind the Gap continues.

Twilight doesn't appear, which was admittedly disappointing. But it doesn't hurt the story, you get a fantastic book worthy of your $8.

Overall, the final issue of the Micro-Series is a pretty funny comic. I mean, it's not amazing, but it will have its fans. The comedy is good but for Luna I'm just not so sure. It was nice however to get a picture of how the two sisters interact on a normal day. Also, I'm sure fans will be surprised/annoyed to see Flash Sentry get a small appearance. I was personally shocked, and it shows that the comics can do anything, which is cool. So, while I wouldn't consider this the best Micro-Series issue, it's still a fun read and it feels like double the content. (There's even a fun little short story after written by Cook.)

Overall, Tirek's issue is solid read from beginning to end. It's gives backstory to a great villain. Though, the way it ends makes the reader wish it were graphic novel size, because the writing makes the reader want to read what happens afterward when he overthrows the kingdom. In essence, it feels incomplete with the knowledge that there's no second part The significance of the pony isn't properly explained unfortunately, as well as his bizarre Luna-like appearance. (Basically, if the Princess was a stallion.) Still, if you enjoyed ‘Twilight's Kingdom' and are a fan of Tirek, pick up this comic.

Overall, this isdefinitelythe most story-based issue of My Little Ponywe've seen yet. It does have some fun and intense action, but it's mainly about Nightmarity getting ready to take over. The story keeps getting bigger, it's safe to see we canexpecta full blown war next time.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #8

Jun 11, 2013

Overall, a pretty epic conclusion to the second arc of the My Little Pony comic series. It's not perfect, it would have benefited from another issue to better highlight the war aspect. While the issue is pretty serious, that's not to say it's devoid of comedy, you're going to get a good laugh when you see Pinkie Pie mention ‘Pegasisters.' Oh, and Trixie gets the best line of all.

Jul 31, 2013

Overall, I was genuinely surprised by how great this issue turned out to be. I never doubted the team of Cook and Price, but it far exceeded my expectations for a Big Mac story. While Applejack's brother is the star, it also gives us a pretty cool look at Ponyville and all its interesting inhabitants. Pony fans are going to definitely want to pick it up.

Overall, this was a very fun conclusion to Big Mac's story. It's entertaining and unique. (Want to see a panel with Mac having an arm wrestle with Princess Celestia?) It shows just how much heart the team puts into the story and art, I hope they'll be on My Little Pony for a long time.

Sep 24, 2013

Overall, this was a very interesting issue of My Little Pony. It's really cool how it tells a story taking place in the past that has a direct relationship to something major in present day. Some might be irked that Shining Armor isn't like his current portrayal, but I personally didn't mind. Plus, you'll see how a certain background pony gets her cutie mark, pretty awesome scene that I have to give a round of applause to the team for including it. (For some, it'll be the the scene that makes the comic!)

Oct 29, 2013

Overall, Issue #12 ends the flashback story between Cadence and Shining Armor nicely. Now we'll forever know how the two got together. There's humor on every page, (look out for Batman and Teen Titans references) and is just a blast to read. Of course, you'll be ready for a new Mane 6 adventure afterward. Not that those two are tiring, but just as with all flashbacks, eventually you want to see the story move forward. Next month: Pirates!

The story is unique and engaging, we've never seen the ponies quite like this before. With a fantastic ending, (get ready for a boss fight in the next one) this pirate arc looks to be one of the best. Oh, and Twilight looksabsolutelyfantastic with her wings.

Overall, a pretty fun issue. It doesn't quite come close to Part One, it feels rushed. It does however bring in the famous mereponies for the first time, which was neat. The plot twist was admittedly unexpected, but too sudden. The ending moral about love was nice though. And you'll never forget the day ponies took on a giant crab.

Jan 15, 2014

Overall, sadly this issue of MLP was plagued with writing problems. Granted, while it will hinder some of the enjoyment for hardcore fans, (seriously, just like that they stop being friends?) it's still a very entertaining read with a lot of fun plot points thanks to them jumping from book world to book world. Daring Do doesn't disappoint, hopefully she'll have a nice large role in the next issue. This new Princess appeared out of nowhere, but with a cool design and good dialogue, she may end up going somewhere. So while fun, this issue of MLP is one of the weaker ones writing wise.

Feb 6, 2014

Overall, Issue 16 of MLP is definitely a better read than its previous installment. I'm still disappointed with the turn of events regarding the Bookworm, he would have been so much cooler as a beast. Sadly, despite being quite an interesting character, the Queen sadly didn't get to do much, same with Daring Do. But despite all of that, the comic still earns a nice enough rating due to being really fun. Seriously, nothing beats ponies…in space!

Overall, ‘Reflections' ends beautifully. All the parts come together nicely for a very satisfying conclusion. While much of the focus is on the Celestias and Sombra, each of the ponies get adequate page-time. The writing is at its finest; the scene where Celestia tells Twilight that the latter will make a great ruler of Equestria was amazingly done. Sadly the Mane 6 didn't run into their counterparts, a truly wasted opportunity. (The backup, while funny. doesn't make up for it.) Nonetheless, you'll want to pick up ‘Reflections' in trade if you for some reason haven't been reading, it's fantastic.

The Cutie Mark Crusaders were a lot of fun too, and Fluttershy while technically not doing much contributes some nice dialogue. (Aside from of course that one line.)

The ponies themselves don't actually do much as oppose to just talking, but that's okay since they're here to assist, not be the main stars. I'm going to miss the deers and the Everfree Forest, but at least we have wrestling coming up!

Flutterbat makes her big comeback from the episode “BATS.” The ending features some of the best dialogue from any MLP comic to date. The Apples themselves were more on the annoying side, but the issue was definitely great nonetheless.

Aside from a continuity error, (it's not big enough to take away the perfect score) the issue is a superb read and one all MLP fans should check out.

Non-Humans #1

Oct 2, 2012

Overall, a great start to this rather intriguing mini-series. There's so much happening, I'm not sure how it could all be contained into just four issues. The main character is pretty interesting, but really it's the world around him that's the engaging part. The Non-Humans are pretty cool, with many of them being actual characters in the story. For just $2.99, it's better than a lot of the $3.99 comics you see on the stands. Based on everything I've said, I hope I'veencouraged you to give this issue a shot, it's worth the read, as I'm sure the next three issues will be.

Aimes gets some pretty good backstory, and there's quite a few unexpected twists. Plus, when you see how the antagonist in the end connects with Aimes, you're going to be like, "Wow"that's very good." Non-Humans is easily becoming one of the best mini-series from Image.

Overall, THE HOLLOWS #2 is a really good read. It further establishes this unique world of Tokyo We have Craig whom is developed more as a character, we get to see his family and life in the trees, and"more Hollow action. I'm really liking this series, easily recommended. It's not like many others, you have no idea what's coming.

The Lone Ranger Annual 2013 #1

Sep 24, 2013

Overall, while I was disappointed that the Ranger and Devil-Gun didn't have a real confrontation, the 2013 annual is still a fantastic read. The writing is very good, especially all of the Ranger's fantastic dialogue. And the really cool part? This is a perfect one-shot for any newcomer or someone whom is looking for a 'different' comic book story amongst the explosions the cliffhangers.

The Lone Ranger: Snake of Iron #1

Jul 11, 2012

Overall, Issue #1 of Snake of Iron comes really recommended. The writing is great, the story is simple yet engaging, and just a great comic overall. I may have to take out my old Lone Ranger DVD now, reading this has gotten me in a Lone Ranger mood.

The Lone Ranger: Snake of Iron #2

Aug 28, 2012

Overall, a great second installment in this mini-series. Writer Chuck Dixon has a firm grasp on these characters. Snake of Iron has been a really good read and is recommended if you're a fan of the title character. Even if you're not it proves to be a great read anyway.

The Lone Ranger: Snake of Iron #3

Oct 17, 2012

Overall, yet another great issue in the Snake of Iron series. It isn't heavy on the action, but rather on its story. Writer Chuck Dixon has been doing a fantastic job, I'm sad to see it go next issue.

The Lone Ranger: Snake of Iron #4

Dec 5, 2012

Overall, a fine conclusion to Snake of Iron. This one has more action than the previous three, but still retains the excellent writing. While I do think the Ranger should have appeared more, it's still a great comic from the beginning to the final shot of the two main characters riding away.

The Shadow/Green Hornet: Dark Nights #1

Jul 9, 2013

Overall, a solid start to this Shadow/Green Hornet story, It might not be what you're expecting, but the historical backdrop should make it interesting regardless. I just hope we get to see some costume action with the two next time.

Thunderbolts (2012) #2

Dec 19, 2012

Overall, a disappointing followup to the average first issue. The story is generally unexciting, after I had put down the comic, I had to remember just what the heck happened. I like a good story, but the main reason whyI'm reading this series is for the characters. I want to see them interact with each other, we don't even see what their first reactions are when they found out who they were working with. Thunderbolts so far has been a disappointingseries. (Which is surprising since I quite like some ofDaniel Way's work.) Sadlythe wonderful cast is being underutilized, I can only hope it starts to improve, otherwise I don't see it lasting after the 10th issue.

Thunderbolts (2012) #3

Jan 9, 2013

Overall, Thunderbolts #3 is an intriguing comic. It's definitely an improvement, in both writing and story. It's still not the 'great' series it should be, but I think it's getting there. I'm looking forward to every character's reaction to the crazy ending next issue.

Thunderbolts (2012) #4

Feb 8, 2013

Overall, Thunderbolts may just be the worst Marvel NOW title. This issue wasn't good or fun, it's filled with stuff nobody cares about. I will say the fact that the team no longer trusts Red Hulk will make for an interesting plot point in the coming issues, but at this point this book is going to end by Issue #8.

Thunderbolts (2012) #6

Mar 14, 2013

Overall, Thunderbolts cannot be called a good series. This issue was justboring,nothing at all happened. There's virtually no story, it's even slightly confusing. I'll give this book one more chance since a new arc is starting, but that's it.

Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters #2

Jun 12, 2013

Overall, definitely a stronger issue than the first part. Beast Hunters is slowly becoming more than a companion story. With some good writing and action seen here, I'm confident we'll be getting some really good stuff in coming issues.

Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots #1

Nov 28, 2012

Overall, Rageof the Dinobots #1 is a fantastic start to this mini-series. It's exciting, part of the show's continuity, and no humans. (That's always a plus.) The writing is very good, plus we all could use a little more Shockwave to hold us over until Season 3, so there's always that. If you're a fan of Transformers Prime, there is no reason why you shouldn't pick this comic up.

Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots #3

Feb 6, 2013

Overall, a pretty action packed issue of Rage of the Dinobots. We get a pretty cool fight between Grimlock and Ser-Ket, some greatdialoguefrom Grimlock. and is a pretty fun Transformers comic all around. I'll be looking forward to Shockwave and theconclusion.

Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots #4

Feb 20, 2013

Overall, a fine conclusion to Rage of the Dinobots. Finally Shockewave takes center stageand shows us why he's oneof the best Transformers characters. Grimlock and his Dinobot allies get some greatscenes too, Iespecially likethe Slug/Ultra Magnus one, it was puregeniusand evenmanagesto fool the reader. With a very nice ending,I'm all set for Beast Hunters.

Transformers: Regeneration One #81

Jul 12, 2012

Overall, if you're a Transformers fan thanks to the films or Prime, this is the perfect jumping on point to get more out of your favorite bots. Longtime fans will have a nostalgiablast with a continuation to the classic Generation One story with writing that could have saved all three Transformers movies. (Well, maybe not saved, but could have helped a great deal.) Longtime fan or newcomer should definitely give Regeneration One a go.

Transformers: Regeneration One #82

Aug 1, 2012

Overall, the second edition of Regeneration One proves to be another comic Transformers fans will enjoy. It's a classic story in the making. With this issue comes some new developments with a last page that could either be interesting or a fan's worst nightmare.

Transformers: Regeneration One #83

Sep 5, 2012

Overall, a very interesting and soid entry in RegenerationOne. If it's one thing this issue did, it made me anticipate the big fight coming soon. Circuit Smasher ends up being one one of the more intriging characters, I'm looking forward to seeing where he'll be in the next few issues.

Transformers: Regeneration One #84

Oct 10, 2012

Overall, another solid installment ofRegeneration One. While this is mainly a setup issue for the more exciting things to come, it's still fun. (With no annoying teens in sight!) Transformers fans should be with this story, and if they're not, they'd best jump in.

Transformers: Regeneration One #85

Nov 7, 2012

Overall, this is by far the best Regeneration One comic yet and one of the bestTransformers comic I've ever read. The Optimus/Megatron battle is obviously the main reason why it's so good, it delivers everything you want. It's the end of an era. I'm a little surprised by the outcome, I'm not quite sure how the series will continue now, we shall soon see. Even if you haven't been reading Regeneration One, this is still a comic to pick up, it's going to go down one as one of the iconics

Transformers: Regeneration One #86

Dec 5, 2012

Overall, a really good start to Natural Selection. After the grand battle with Optimus and Megatron last time, an issue focused on setting a new story and Grimlock taking center stage was welcome. The Dinobot leader has never been more engaging as a character, and due to his decisionnear the end, I'm very curious to see where this goes. Transformers fans should be reading Regeneration One.

Transformers: Regeneration One #87

Jan 8, 2013

Overall, another great installment of Transformers Regeneration One. Grimlock gets some great page-time, and the words spoken by Optimus are words that should be read by all Transformers fans. We also get to see Galvatron, and the ending featuring S"well, you'll just have to see for yourself. Regeneration One continues to be the Transformers title you should be reading.

Transformers: Regeneration One #88

Feb 13, 2013

Overall, this issue of Regeneration One was just great. It brings back all of the major plots, almost everyone gets some page-time. There are many fantastic moments throughout, such as Grimlock's big descision. What's amazing also is that this issue proves you don't need Optimus to make a good Transformers comic, he doesn't make a single appearance in this one. I'll be eagerly looking forward to the next installment.

Mar 13, 2013

Overall, another solidissue of Regeneration One. The Dionobots finally get to dosome damage, and Grimlock has many memorable scenes. While some of the other plots are moving a bit slow, there's mo denying that this Scorponokstory is a well enough read. It should be interesting to see where it goes next time.

Overall, another great installment in the Regeneration One saga. The battle between Grimlock and Scorponok isamazinglydone with a veryunforeseenending. Galvatron and Starsctream are back in the game and when you think about it, the plots that's going to be connected will be insane since it's almost like a domino effect. With that, Ieagerlylookforwardto Destiny.

Transformers: Regeneration One #91

Overall, another solid issue of Regeneration One. Light on the action, but there's plenty else to like. Hot Rod has been aquestionableleader, that comes to full play here. We get more insight on the Soundwave/Bludgeon alliance, plus we see the unrest among the Cybertron citizens. Regeneration One keeps getting bigger.

Transformers: Regeneration One #92

Jun 12, 2013

Overall, a great issue of Regeneration One. All of the plots are coming together nicely. There's some good action on Cybetron and Soundwave fans will be pleased with his appearance. Blaster gets some nice scenes in too, and finally Optimus has a chat with Spike and Earth's survivors. I'm going to miss this status quo when it's over, but for now lets enjoy the epic things that are about to take place.

Transfusion #1

Oct 10, 2012

Overall, Transfusion #1 is one of those surprise new #1s on the stands. It has such quality, you feel like you're getting the most for your $3.99. Intriguing backdrop, great writing, interesting premise, (vampires vs. robots!) and most all, an engaging story. I cannot recommend Transfusion #1 enough, it's one of the best comics this week, give it a shot.

Transfusion #2

Dec 21, 2012

Overall, another utterlyfantastic issue of Transfusion, easily the best comic I've read this week. It's a truly unique series, one that I encourage all to check out. The writing and art are both triple A plus, the robots have a great design, and it's Vampires vs. Robots. I cannot recommend this series enough, the only sad thing is that it's going to be way too short-lived, since it's ending with its third installment in two months. (If this doesn't deservea movie adaption, I don't know what does.)
