Age of Ultron vs. Marvel Zombies #2

Aug 3, 2015

There are a few cameos in this issue we see zombie versions of Lady Deathstrike and Electro battling Punisher. In Salvation we see Iron Patriot, Daredevil and maybe Black Widow and an A.I.M lacky.Captain America, Namor and the Human Torch are all seen in a flash back panel as are Giant Man, Hercules and Ironman.

Agent Carter: SHIELD 50th Anniversary #1

Sep 21, 2015

Being a massive fan of the TV show, I was a little taken aback when I saw this issue, however the longer I read it the more I felt like I was reading about the Peggy I love. The bond between Peggy and Sif felt natural. Peggy refusing to join Shield and Fury telling her she would be a great asset or a serious threat was written well. Dum Dum and Peggy integrated perfectly. It's very well written and the art had that retro feel to it.

Army of Darkness: Furious Road #2

Apr 6, 2016

The art inside is nice with some of the panels of Ash looking exactly like Bruce Campbell, the story is easy enough to follow, they want the book to send all the demons back to hell. Simple. But to be honest you're not reading for the story, it's the over the top kills and Ash's one liners that make this book worth while.Is it keeps this pace it'll keep me coming back.

Army of Darkness: Furious Road #4

Jun 1, 2016

As a fan of the movies and the to show I'm probably more the target audience than those unaware of the Evil Dead franchise but I truly believe that anyone new reader could pick up the trade for Furious Road and enjoy as much as I have. Sometimes with books the story feels like the writer are trying too hard to be cleaver or creative and original but this feels easy and simple while being cleaver, creative and original. This whole creative team have done an amazing job at bringing a story that's easy to follow, full of action and interesting.This is one of the titles I look forward to the most each month.

Batgirl (2011) #45

Nov 2, 2015

This title needs a new team or the old team or just cancellation. It's not working for me. That could be because it's no longer aimed at me. It's aimed at younger readers that want a happy, cartoony Disney princess Batgirl. Sadly that's not what I want.

Blood Feud #1

Sep 16, 2015

This issue was actually a pretty good build up issue. It felt like the start of a horror movie, it had everything you want from horror. I really enjoyed it. The art is great and for the first time in a long while all the characters were likeable. It's gonna be sad when we start to lose them one by one. If I'm being honest I have to say it felt a little like the walking dead. Almost like a prequel until the vampires.

With each panel to make it feel dark and scary.The story itself is very cleaver, the vampires are trying to poison the whole world so that not hung living can survive in it, since the vampires are not alive they would survive while the wolf's died off.American Gothic Press has some very good titles out right now.

The action doesn't stop in this comic. Having a threat so big even Wonder Woman and Superman are out gunned is very interesting to see. Deathstroke being the anti hero, having to say the day after being the one responsible is great to read. The art and the writing make it not only easy to read but a pleasure.

It's a bit choppy, a little too much going on in a singe issue. With so many teams all doing their own things it's hard to see a through point. I'm sure as the series goes in all with intertwine but, as it is, it all feels a little too separate.

Dreaming Eagles #2

Jan 27, 2016

This book is a great World War II book on its own but at times it's very heavy on the 'oh look how racist everyone is', The sad thing is this is probably a lot more mild than it actually was. Great fighter jet fight panels and gorgeous art make this a war story I didn't get bored reading, I'm not normally into this kind of book but fighter jets are cool, even the old ones from the 40's.

Apr 1, 2016

It's all good watching drug dealers turn on each other and feed them to rats but that's all you get here.Mikey's home life is tragic and it's sad to see what this young boy had to do to help his family. But I want to see him get his powers already. Imagine reading a batman book that is all about a 12-year-old Bruce Wayne…. Oh wait that's A tv show already, well yeah it's like that. But where Gotham works because we know who Bruce WILL be this is dragging as we don't know this guy.The art does save it somewhat with some gorgeous panels. The writing isn't bad it's just slow, the last issue had the pacing this one lacks.Fingers crossed the next issue gives us the title character, 3 stars!

The overall story has been interesting enough to keep a reader happy but I am glad we finally get to see what Mikey can do, 3 issues in doesn't seem like a long time to wait but reading monthly it feels a little long, this might read better as a trade but that's not to say it's slow, far from it, it's just that after the amazing first issue cover I've wanted to see the Elasticator in action and this issue gave me just that, albeit without the costume for now but hopefully next issue.

Go Go Power Rangers #1

Jul 26, 2017

As a more “mature” Power Ranger fan this series, like the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series is perfect for me, it keeps close enough to the show that you feel like a kid again while growing with its audience for a more grown up story telling. The art is stunning in every panel from the first page to last and getting to see a closer look at how they became the team we know and love is great. This is hands down a 5 star book.

The over arching story of this four part tale is entertaining in its own right with plenty of plots to keep you going between the queen trying to save her kingdom and the bog witch trying to overthrow it and her minions with ideas for their own rise to power this is a must read. The great writing stands out with serious panels quickly evaporating into laugh out loud moments. The art in this is simple gorgeous, simple yet so stunning, bold colours make each page pop and keeps you lingering to check out each panel closely. This book is one of my favourites right now, I'll be sad when it ends.For me this easily a 5 star book.

This quarterly title has had me hooked since issue one with its over the top violence to its witty one liners as our two heroes travel the countryside on a mission from the queen to save the lands from beasts and man alike. The action doesn't let up for a second as Norgal does what he does best and lop off heads on almost every page. The art has been some of my favourite out there while the writing hasn't let this book down with some fun interactions between the leading man and lady. Agatha is simply a joy to read with her snark and sarcasm always on hand to help Norgal remember why he hates her so very very much.It's going to be a long wait until the next story early next year.This is a fivre star book no question.

Inferno: Resurrection #2

Meet Mercy, Hells latest reject, she wasn't too good at the whole being in hell thing so Lucifer sent her back to round-up all the souls that have escaped…. I remember a TV show like this called Brimstone, God I'm old. Anyhoo back to the book. Mercy is damn good at her job but she's still got a softer side so when a young girl asks for her help to save her boyfriend Mercy agrees even if it means missing her date. Action and ass kicking ensues. This book was made for me it checks all my boxes… Strong female lead.. Check. Great fight scenes.. Check. Cool supernatural elements.. Check. Beautiful art and an interesting story.. Double check. Top it all off with being a nice compact 5 issue run and you have a winner. Great introduction to Zenescope as I've not read any of their work until now but I'll be sure to check out more if this is any indication of the quality of their title.

Interesting idea. Far from original but interesting nine the less. The story moved along nicely and it didn't feel like I'd missed the first 4 issues. It's easy to jump into which shows some good writing here. It has potential as long as it doesn't go too far into the superhero style book and more of the lost kids looking for family and make it about heart over action.

It's a teen+ book which means it's not for kids and it's really night. From threatening to see how many hot coals he can fit inside a guy to cutting a guy's face in half. It's violent.

Midnighter (2015) #8

Jan 11, 2016

I've yet to read a bad issue of Midnighter, it's one of my favourite DC titles at the moment. The art is great, the fight panels make every battle look amazing and the stories are always fast paced, action packed and just plain fun.So far he's teamed up with Grayson, kicked so many bells of crap out of countless Multiplexes, had his heart-broken and done it all while flirting and fighting like a sexy trooper.Midnighter is about more than just fighting, he's got friends and lovers all over the world that he meets up with when he need to talk or maybe a little something, something *wink wink*.Calling him gay batman is an insult, he is so much more, he's grown so much in so few issues and that's a testament to the great writers.If you've not already picked up a Midnighter comic this is as good a place as any to start.

This final issue didn't disappoint as Midnighter and Apollo team up with the Suicide Squad and Spyral to take down Henry Bendix and his new creation the Unified, a combination of the tech in Midnighters head with the powers of Apollo. How can they stop the combination that is essentially the best of them both. I've not been able to find a flaw with any issue of this one until now and that flaw is simply" It's the last issue.

The art is some of the most gorgeous I've seen, both people and zords are drawn so well. I can't say enough good things about this title and yes that might be the 90's kid in me jumping for joy that I get to read about the best Ranger team of all time, but I have to say this feels like it's written by an actual MMPR fan that knows not only who these kids are but what fans want.

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers #12

Feb 15, 2017

I can't lie, this title has been one of my favourites each month and this issue is a prime example why. The war of the Rangers looks like it could be its own mini series and the glimpse into what could have happened if Tommy stayed with Rita is fantastic. Seeing Zords from Rangers yet to come and the sad loss of one of the Rangers at Tommy's hands make this one of the best issues in the run. If this series keeps this pace it's going to keep its place in my top five books each month.

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers Annual #2017

When it comes to annuals these days they're not usually part of the ongoing story they just exist to get us to buy more comics, ideally an annual should be a jumping on point for new reading to get up to date on what has happen in the past year of the title. But that said this is a solid five star book.

The writing is very well done as both a horror book and more importantly a crime noire. The story is interesting and fun, it feels very easy to read which makes it a joy. Monsters, murder and a private eye with an eye for the ladies, Really what more could you want.

This book is far too cute to be this dark. With a cast of characters that look like Funko Pops this should be a happy-go-lucky title of rainbows and lollipops but if I Hate Fairyland has taught us anything it's that cute kids killing things can be awesome.This book feels a lot weirder then I was expecting and it works against it as it feels very random and the writing is choppy and broken, I'm not sure what language it's translated from but it feels like something was lost in translation. The idea is solid, an 8-year-old obsessed with serial killers and enjoys killing people should be hilarious and fun but it feels forced and dull. The art however is simply gorgeous, I cannot fault the art in this book on a single page it's a joy to look at.It's dark and sad in places and just not fun at all. I was looking forward this one after seeing the cover but Sadly this only gets 2 stars from me.

This is a very weird book. I'm guessing it's meant to be. The art is childlike and simple. Bright colours and plain panels make it easy on the eye. Jumping in five issues makes me wonder if I've missed anything of note. Not a lot happened in this issue, so maybe it's a filler issue to the overall story. I'll never know as I don't plan on revisiting this title.

As a new title I'm sure I would have really enjoyed it, but being called Puppet master my expectations where too high going in.

I'm not into gore-porn but it would have been nice to see a little carnage.

This is essentially a cooking show in comic form with all the back stage bits thrown in. Intertwined with the bonding of a father and daughter after what appears to be years of absents.

The art is simple but very well done with smooth lines and soft colours, the facial expressions are some of the best and I really like this smooth look in a book. Although the book starts with the possession of an innocent woman's body The book takes a darker turn when Wendy is threatened with exposure and the next issue will show how far Jason will go for her. I enjoy a good thriller/Horror title and this one is better than expected, dark and creepy while having emotion and humour make this a great all round book so it gets 4 stars from me.

The story is simple yet hits hard in the last few pages.
