Amazing Spider-Man (1999) #541

Jun 25, 2007

I always wanted to read a story that reflects Peter's darker side, showing no inhibitions in escalating his violence towards those who deserved it. Straczynski's portrayal of Peter is genuine of a person motivated by anger and revenge towards those who are responsible for hurting his loved ones.

Birds of Prey (1998) #108

Jul 24, 2007

Last summer I purchased an issue of Birds of Prey. After reading that issue, I was hooked and proceeded to acquire back issues written by Gail Simone on this series. One rarely comes across a writer who genuinely understands the characters. From the sincere sister-like interaction between Oracle and Black Canary to Huntress's razor-sharp edgy superhero style, Gail has imprinted her mark on this series. For many readers, the mere mention of the series title is followed immediately by the name Gail Simone. This was not caused by accident. Gail earned this distinction by constantly producing quality work from her debut on the title up to her finale in issue #108. I daresay this might very well be the best issue of this whole run. Don't miss out. BoP fans will miss Gail's work. It is always best to depart at your best, reminding fans how much their support for the series was very much respected.

Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man (2005) #21

Jul 9, 2007

Final Words: This book is for you if you are a Spider-Man fan and want some of Spidey's other stories to tie up its loose ends. If not, it is still a good book to pick up if you just want to be entertained with a genuine Spider-Man character who is witty and entertaining.

Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps Special #1

Jul 1, 2007

Both major publishers are currently presenting big events that promise danger in epic scale, but they pale in comparison to the kind of danger the Sinestro Corps bring up to the plate. It makes all big events look miniscule. Readers will devour this story and wonder especially how the two Franchise Players can be stopped by our heroes. I mean these guys make Parallax and Sinestro look like junior varsity players in a professional ball game. I definitely highly recommend this to all readers. Dont miss Sinestro Corps Special #1. You will find yourself opening the book over and over and just shake your head in utter disbelief at the level of power of the villains. Unbelievable! At 64 pages, of which only 8 pages are ads, this books price of $4.99 is a steal. The quality of this book speaks for itself.

Superman/Batman #37

Jul 9, 2007

Final Words: I can only recommend this issue to diehard Superman/Batman collectors. Notice, I did not type "readers." Purchase this if you are collecting this series. If you want to read and be entertained, wait until the next creative team takes the helm on Superman/Batman.

Wolverine Origins #15

Jun 29, 2007

Final words: Wolverine's genuine smile at the end. I never came across a comic book with a genuine smile on Wolverine. It did not feel forced. And the revelations regarding the death of the women in Logan's life captured the tragedy that is Logan's life. I highly recommend this issue.
