I hope that this arc is over soon and this book starts coming out on a more regular basis as delays have really made me not care about this book more and more. This is really a shame because Armor has great potential and this is the only title she is utilized in.

Caligula #1

Apr 6, 2011

From all of the hype and build up that Avatar has pushed into this title, I was expecting something a lot more visually gruesome. Especially from David Lapham, the writer of Crossed:Family Values, the most visually disturbing comic of 2010. Don't get me wrong, all of the despicable acts that occur are clearly described but the writer just leaves the visuals to your imagination.

Crossed: Family Values #1

Jun 24, 2010

So what do I think of this book? Well as a huge fan of Kirkman's The Walking Dead and the original Crossed series from Avatar, I can honestly say I like this book. What can we say about David Lapham, the writer? The man is insane. I am pretty confident that there is some disturbance in his past that he is venting through his writing. Its bad enough to have psycho sex obsessed sadists after you, now add a rapists controlling father to the mix. The plot so far is not too intricate. No surprises or twists. The art, drawn by Javier Barreno, is excellent. Lots of gore, violence, and decapitations, as is common in Crossed books. I feel that we have barely seen the tip of the iceberg when it comes to dad's depravity. I'm pretty sure its going to get a lot worse. The foreshadowing at the end of issue one makes me quite certain of it. The covers are all beautiful and very violent. Overall a great book. I can't wait till next issue. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Crossed: Family Values #2

Jun 24, 2010

I'm of the opinion that in a world where the Crossed are supposed to be the enemy, the true evil is closer than you think. Maybe that's what David Lapham, the writer, is doing. Making us see true evil in a world completely engulfed in evil. The art, by Javier Barreno, is stunning. You can feel the insanity coming out of each Crossed face.

No overabundance of gore. No mindless violence. No sickness or depravity. (Can you blame them after all of the sick stuff crammed into #3?) Is this really a Crossed book? Yes, my fellow readers, it is. However, this time, humans are the sadistic ones. And that is what David Lapham, the writer, is trying to portray.

Daken: Dark Wolverine #1

Sep 16, 2010

So let's talk opinions. This is a perfect jump on issue for anyone looking to root for the bad guy. Not Deadpool insane but funny bad, but Bullseye psycho killer bad. Daken is that type of character. This issue proves it. He has an agenda and a mission. What that is will be the main focus of the next few issues, I think, and that is fine by me. I really want to get to know this character and he needs to be fleshed out more. Other than daddy issues, I want to see what makes Daken worthy of his own title. We have lots of teasers dropped in this issue which is always good. Keeps you wanting for more. The art is not great, but the dark and the shadows on every page kind of add to the mysterious feel of the book. Even in daylight, it always seems that Daken is covered in shadows. (Kind of funny since he is trying to come out of the shadows of his father and Romulus. Personally, I can't wait to see what Daken has planned. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Daken: Dark Wolverine #2

Oct 15, 2010

So let's talk opinions. A really strong issue. Better, more cleaner art than last issue. Less shadowy and more colorful. Also, it was great to see Mystique get some face time. She is such a great character with so many ties to everyone and everything that I fell that she needs to be used a lot more. The exchanges between her and Daken are priceless. I was a little curious as to why she thought Nightcrawler had shown up at the restaurant. I'm pretty sure she knows her son is dead. I guess it was an instinctual reaction to the brimstone. Her shape change into the dress was also pretty cool. I keep forgetting at times that she has that ability as well. I hope next issue Daken throws Demon Wolvie a good beating. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Daken: Dark Wolverine #4

Dec 30, 2010

So let's talk opinions. So Daken achieved his goal of anonymity but reveals himself to Reed Richards. How smart is that? Like Reed won't tell Logan and every other hero on the planet and tell them to keep quiet about it. What good is pretending to be dead if everyone knows that you're still alive? In any case, it was a good issue. Daken is still shown as stealthy, clever, devious, and an excellent actor. He really is a chameleon who can blend into any situation and take advantage of it. The art on the Fantastic Four was much better this time around. Thing looked great. The NYC skyline was gorgeous and pretty damn accurate. (Trust me, I'm from Brooklyn.) The story was solid and funny at times. Daniel Way, the writer, has a talent for making witty smart ass comments. I hope that continues. I can't wait to see Daken cut loose in Madripoor. Maybe even get into some of his father's old haunts and make them his own. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Deadpool (2008) #33

Mar 6, 2011

So let's talk opinions. What a truly great issue. This amazing book had everything you need to know about Deadpool. Any person who wanted to jump on the title would have a perfect example of what to expect month in and month out. Deadpool did his mercenary thing. There is plenty of action and violence. Plenty of humor as well. A complete story all wrapped into one issue. Add to that the wonderful art and we have perfection. That cat was hilarious. Deadpool's face with the mask all messed up was hilarious. The little old woman was priceless. The two splash pages were pretty cool. I also enjoyed the shifts in Deadpool's moral grounds as the issue progressed showing you the many level's to Deadpool's motives. From greed, to extortion, to cunning, to pity, to satisfaction, Deadpool experienced it all. Plus, a classic Deadpool ending. A perfect book, by all accounts. I hope this trend continues. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Apr 13, 2011

So let's talk opinions. Thank god this story arc is over. It was starting to get depressing. No humor. Very little action. Louse plot. Other than Deadpool going back to his heroic ways and revealing a bit of vanity, there was really absolutely no development at all. (Oh yeah, Id is dead. Big deal) The art was the usual bit of excellence. Great space backgrounds and clean looking aliens. Other than that, this issue had absolutely no substance. They could have combined the last two issues into one and ended our suffering sooner. The best part of the book, for me, were all of the advertisements for upcoming Marvel titles. That was cool and exciting. I really hope Daniel Way can return this title to greatness as all of the other Deadpool books that were entertaining have been canceled. That's my opinion folks.

So let's talk opinions. Well the action this issue was pretty sweet. The humor was present. Too bad that the story was pretty much an afterthought. I mean seriously. Deadpool pisses off Hulk. Hulk gets madder and stronger. Hulk finally begins to smash Deadpool. That was pretty much it. Not that the issue was bad, just very single minded. There was, however, an excellent use of a classic TV theme song that had me cracking up in my chair. (Deadpool is my Greatest American Hero) The art was the usual fare of awesomeness. Lots of nice colorful images. Lots of large splash pages. Lots of big action shots. I just wish we had a little bit more substance but you can't always have everything. I hope next issue we see some nice smashing and bashing as well as Deadpool being the heroic shnuck we all know he wants to be. (Save those kiddies Deadpool) That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

I think that they took an awesome character like the Champion, who brought so much humor in the first three issues and completely wasted the opportunity for another great issue. At least there were jokes here that were somewhat funny. At least they did not focus only on Deadpool. And not as much of the multiple characters talking to all of their inner voices. Also, like I said in my last review, Lady Deadpool is now a much more interesting character. I'm still on board for next issue. Hope it keeps picking up speed. That's my opinion folks.

Is it just me or does Teela look like Domino? Also, how the hell does Deadpool lose the right arm portion of his costume? One page it's there, the next, it's gone. (Spandex eating space termites?) And where are all the backgrounds? All I see is air and space. At least the violence is still present. Hot girlfight was a nice touch. (Also, why the hell is Headpool not getting into the action and chewing on some enemy heads? And where's dogpool?) Storywise, its not a bad issue but we can do better.

So let's talk opinions. Something doesn't feel right. Maybe I'm too hung up on Valiant and the really cool universe that it was. Maybe its the plain, non-super powered enemies. (Serious enemies, like Master Darque was, not these petty muscle bound monsters.) The story feels stretched and simplified. Too much jumping around and not enough focus. I'm still on board for next issue but Mr. Shooter really needs to give me something to keep me hooked or I'm afraid that this series will be removed from my pull list soon. Artistically, this book is strong. Clean visuals and nice action sequences. There is even a touch of humor infused in this issue which is always a nice touch to a book. Overall, I say hang in there. If I know Shooter, it will get better. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Dec 23, 2010

So let's talk opinions. This issue continues last issue's excellence. The story is great. The action is non-stop and intense. Solar is now using the full extent of his god like powers. Jim Shooter is back on the ball here. After a slow start, the first arc ended with a bang. A bunch of cool character intros. A nice patsy first enemy who can clearly be brought back in the future to pose a threat. An intro of a new mastermind villain. All written and drawn phenomenally. There's even some humor being thrown in which was sorely missed from prior issues. Solar is not doing as much brooding or second guessing. His confidence is back. The story itself is solid. The technical jargon from prior issues are gone. The battles are constant and intense. Everything a great comic book should have. Let's hope the greatness continues. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

So let's talk opinions. I'm very happy with this issue. I'm glad that some of the focus is shifted away from Hope and onto the rest of the kids. We need to build them up a bit so we can really get to know them and relate to them. Without that personal connection, no one is going to want to read this or any title. I am also very happy to see Kitty Pryde as their liaison. Kitty would make a wonderful mentor, considering that she was in their position all those years ago when she became the new kid on the block and had to adjust to the realities of the dangers that surround her and her kind. Plus, she had Wolverine as her mentor and can definitely put that knowledge to good use. I like the new light and it's powers. We need a new telepath. The overall pace here was nice. A perfect jumping on issue for new readers. The art was pretty cool as well. Very clean and easy to decipher images. All in all, a very good issue. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

So let's talk opinions. First off, no back-up story wasting my time and money so that already makes this book a winner. The writing, in my opinion is improving with every issue. I like the way Rulk, and Ross in particular, are being put through the wringer. Hardship upon hardship is being laid out in front of Ross and he's stepping up to face them each time. This is good personal growth for Ross. I really like the concept of Black Fog. In a way, its a Wolverine type character so this battle should be fun. The art in the book is nice but not overly splashy. (Even though the last page image was freakin awesome looking.) I do like that there is a lot going on in every panel. Details always makes a picture more enjoyable. The rain scenes were very nicely done too. I can't wait to see this artist do some nice action sequences. Hopefully, they will be nicely detailed as well. Overall, a great issue. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

So let's talk opinions. The action is picking up and in a gross way. The whole bug battles and bugs inside of you is just gross and disgusting to think about but seeing it is even nastier. I'm not a fan of bugs in general but to see them attack and work together is just sick and scary. I'm glad banner made a cameo but I guess it's all Hulk from now on as the bugs in Hulk's body would probably kill Banner. I'm hoping that Hulk regains his strength little by little so we can see a nice final fight. Overall, the plot is moving along nicely. I like the rekindled connection between Miek and the Brood. The art was both awesome and disturbing. Bugs really do creep me out and these were drawn convincingly well. I can't wait to see what's next. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

So let's talk opinions. Woo hoo. I was waiting for the Plutonian to reveal that he knew it was Modeus all along. Let's face facts. The character is supposed to have super powers on every level and he doesn't know that his greatest enemy is hanging out with him? He can't tell that his old sidekick's speech patterns and facial expressions have changed? I didn't buy it when I first read it. Thank god its going to come to a head. I also enjoyed the quick peeks into how Qubit's mind works. And Survivor really needs to be developed a bit further. So far the all rage and righteousness is getting boring. The art is very good, as always. No surprises. Overall, another great issue that picks the pace back up and gets me brimming with anticipation for next issue.

So let's talk opinions. So the battle that I have been looking forward to for over a year was a huge let down. One blast and Modeus runs away? Then the Plutonian chomps down a Snickers? WTF? Hornet's back-story was nice. It is also good to see what else they can come up with to stop the Plutonian. (Obviously it won't work. If he ever is stopped, the book would end.) I like that the most human of the super-team was the only one who feared the god. (Maybe Lex Luthor has a point. Superman may need to be removed for everyone's safety.) It's also a shame that the most human of the bunch was willing to condemn multiple planets to death, destruction and servitude, for the safety of his own planet. Kind of selfish and unheroic if you think about it. The art, as always is great. (Though don't the aliens on the last page kind of look like the Crimson Guard from G.I. Joe?

So now with the Plutonian out of the picture, I assume Modeus will be the focus of the next batch of books. Should be interesting. I'm a big fan of intelligent enemies over super powered ones.

(More cannon fodder when Tony does return.) I love the way the Plutonian is looking for peace and his mind is doing everything it can to help him achieve it. I wish there was some fighting or action scenes to pick up the excitement factor a bit. Still, we can't be doing battle all of the time. The art is, as always awesome. I love the colors.

So let's talk opinions. The story is very fast. It really doesn't stop for a second. Too much is happening all at once. I know I usually complain about slow books but fast ones are a problem too. There's no time to develop a character. There's no time to get any insight into their personality or identity. Also, I was never a Magnus fan so this might be skewing my opinion as well. At least the art is phenomenal. (That cover is awesome to look at.) It's not too big that it takes over the page and takes away from the story. (If only the story was better.) However, there is still plenty of detail in every panel. I seriously hope that this is a Valiant revival and not just a Gold Key revival. And I also hope that they slow it down a little before it crashes into a wall. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Jim Shooter is doing a much better job with Samson that he is with Solar or Magnus. Or maybe my opinion is biased because I read the Valiant version of those characters and think these re-imaginings are slightly inferior. The art was great. Clean, dark when necessary. Reminded me of old school Conan art that Barry Windsor Smith used to do. So far this book is awesome. There's drama, betrayal, conniving, war. Everything that makes a book a page turner. The reprint was a nice added bonus as well. I'm definitely going to keep this one on my pull list for a while. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Of course one of the kids had to be a mole but I was hoping they would wait a bit longer to reveal him/her. The art was very nice but I did have a small issue. I have this issue with any comic that draws wet characters. Their clothes always seem dry. But that's just me. Still, even with that tiny flub, this book has a great story and very nice art.

Oct 22, 2010

So let's talk opinions. I'm still loving this book. One problem though is I wish that there wasn't six characters to develop. Someone always gets lost. This is the case in all team books. My thing is that I like all of the characters and want each one to get equal face time. So far its been the Casey show and I'm not into that. Build up each character every issue. In any case, the story is moving along nicely. The addition of the mystery message adds some intrigue and gets you thinking. I'm sure it will make perfect sense later, but for now, I can't see the connection. I hope it doesn't get dragged out. Dragging a mystery makes me hate a book. (For example, the whole Red Hulk identity plot-line taking over two years to come together made me hate the book after the first ten issues.) The art is very good, as usual. The whole bald nun dismemberment scene was great and the writing in blood was a great touch. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

So let's talk opinions. I'm not sure if this issue is supposed to be a past story or a future story but I found it to be a bit of a waste. I like that it ties into the main story but the mystery of the entire thing made me a little confused. Is this a past, present, or future story? If so, is this our Jade or a different Jade? Is the device the same as the one from issue #5 or is it a future or past version of it. All very convoluted and confusing. (Maybe I'm missing something.) When a book gets overly complicated, (like anything written by Grant Morrison) I start to zone out. Let's hope this issue is cleared up in the future and we get back to the regular cast as soon as possible. The art is still great though. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

So now all of a sudden the armor talks like a sarcastic punk. The alien speech style is gone. And the movement on this entire story is just so ridiculous. Too many jumps. It feel totally random like the writer is trying too hard to make the story flow. The comedic attempts fail miserably. The CIA agents with the witty banter were weak and completely unbelievable characters. (cheap Men in Black rip offs) Soldier One felt like a Terminator rip off. Nothing at all is original in this book. My advice is to drop it and focus on Traveler and Starborn. For now, those are the MUCH better choices for a great exciting read. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

The Thanos regeneration scene was also very cool to look at. I cannot stop praising the art. Storywise, we are progressing quite well. Battles are being won and lost. Characters are falling and dying. Humor is still present in every issue. We are getting closer to the final battle. (I predict the return of Adam Warlock by issue 6). Next issue's set up for the end should be great. I can't wait to read it. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Once again, its nice to see that Juggernaut is still a villain at heart when he lets Crossbones get some vengeance. I still want more Man-Thing. (I guess rats have no fear) I kind of figured that the Thunderbolts would enter the Shadowlands since Cage is their leader. But seriously, 32 ninjas vs the Juggernaut? If the ninjas win, I'm suing Marvel for defamation of character. Once again the art is sub-par, in my opinion, but the story more than makes up for it.

An excellent starting on point for new readers to get a general idea of the history of the team and where it currently is today. The battle was pretty cool too, so the book did have some action. Also, the sarcasm and banter was here as well, making the issue well rounded. With some nice premonitions, it allows new readers to actually get a feel for where these stories are heading. The art this issue was incredible as well. Great action shots and detailed panels. The two page spread showcasing every Thunderbolt was mesmerizing. I loved the river inside Satana's lair. Really eerie. In general, this book is always a lot of fun to read and I can't wait to see the confrontation between the two teams when they finally do meat. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Angry, resilient and merciless when the kill option presents itself. Also able to drop a few sarcastic, though not humorous, jokes. The rest of the team was pretty cool too.

It looks like a bunch of old wrinkled people fighting each other. The backgrounds are either all black or not there at all. The colors look bland and faded. It just falls very short of good. The story was very slow. So Cyclops has Batman protocols. How unoriginal. Wolverine's mind is being controlled yet again. Another unoriginal concept. Stop rehashing old stories. The Wolverine Origins series that this title replaced was a hundred times better than this crud. For once, I wish there was a terrible back-up to take away some of my hate towards the main tale. I can't believe we have two Wolverine monthly books on the shelves and they both suck. Please get a better artist and better stories soon. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

So let's talk opinions. What the hell is there to say? For the fourth issue in a row, we are being told the same story. Once again, Wolverine has fought an enemy, gotten beat up a little, and then killed them. Also, we get another flashback of one of the Red Right Hand's members and why they hate Wolverine. That's it. Nothing else. There was no plot progression, no new reveals, nothing. No Daken, no demon, absolutely nothing. NOTHING!Just the same story over and over and over. That's not original. Jason Aaron is better than that. Maybe going bi-weekly has caused him to forget how to be original and just become lazy. I really have nothing else to say that I haven't said in my last three reviews. At least the art was still good. That's about it. I'm beyond pissed off and I feel cheated. That's my opinion folks.

So let's talk opinions. From the first page to the last, this issue was stunning to look at. That cover is amazing. Pirate Gambit and Laura look so bad-ass. The interior art is so good too. Very Animeish which is pretty cool. The shark battle scenes were sweet. The story was all right. A nice filler issue with a bit of character growth for Laura, showing us that she is compassionate and not a bloodthirsty killer. It also seems that we might be getting some Gambit background stories in future issues. Always a fun time to learn about the mysterious Cajun's past. My one issue with this book is that some of the humor and sarcasm that was evident in the first few books have disappeared. I hope it returns soon. Still, I am extremely looking forward to the X-23/Daken crossover. That is a battle I have been wanting to see for a few years now. I'm betting if they do fight, it will be awesome.

Syrin and Richtor's banter with Madrox was priceless. The art is also really nice. Lupacchino really knows how to draw people. Especially hot women. I can't wait to see her draw a certain blond-haired god who probably will be making a guest appearance soon. (They are after Hela, you know.) Longshot in Vegas should be illegal.

The whole gay discussion is hilarious. Peter David is an expert at making multiple characters come to life. The opening art with the kids and the fiery background is very nicely drawn. My one issue is the total lack of Las Vegas updates. We could have thrown a few pages of Vegas in. It wouldn't have upset the tone of the book. Well, here's hoping next issue is all Vegas.

I didn't get any here. At least the story is progressing nicely. Thor's appearance was no surprise as this is Hela we're dealing with. And the art was awesome, even with the limited amount of it that we saw. That's the best Hela I have seen in a long time. (Can we get to see her face every once in a while?

This issue was much better than the last one. The story is moving along nicely and it was pretty cool to see Feral again. I hope that they wrap up this baby situation pretty soon as it is becoming a lodestone for the stories being told.

X-Men Giant-Size #1

Here we go. It's about damn time something exciting happened in X-Men. Curse of the Mutants was pretty cool, but the five issues afterward was pure crap and a waste of space. This story actually feels like its something big and can change the landscape of mutantdom.

Well today I definitely got my money's worth. The first story was great. Legion's personalities are beyond powerful and beyond dangerous so stopping them will not only be a mission, but a dangerous one.

This was another great issue. So much is happening and it's really happening pretty fast. I love Frenzy's character. She is really getting some big growth from her earlier days. She's funny, super tough, and has some deep mental issues. What more can you ask from a character?

This issue was good but not as fast paced or action packed as the previous two. This issue was more of a character building issue. We got to see some growth in both the Rogue/Magneto relationship as well as the Gambit/Frenzy one.

I have no idea what to make of this issue. There wasn't anything really wrong with the book but something was missing. There was no excitement. No holy crap moment that just makes you crave the next issue.

So this issue was awesome. It tied in to the main "event" and to Wolverine and the X-Men #10 perfectly. There were a few continuity disorders as to who went to join Cyclops and who didn't, but who cares. As long as they fix it in the next few weeks, all is cool.

X-Men Vol. 4 #3

Sep 9, 2010

So let's talk opinions. We are progressing nicely. No wasted time here. All action and no filler. That's what makes this series great so far. The art on Dracula's resurrection was amazing. I like Dracula's new look. A mix of manga and the classic. Jubilee with fangs was great too. (Still miss her earrings though.) How the hell Wolverine, the most aware mutant ever, got suckered by her I have no idea. (Women. They make you do crazy things.) The dialogue given to Dracula is also very cool. I like the exchange between him and Cyclops. (The man has no sense of humor. Stop trying to make him funny.) I also like Dracula's Blade description. Unfortunately, like I said before, the man gets no respect and this issue verifies my belief. Well, I can't wait to see what will happen next. Cyclops has a plan, I'm sure of it. But it will be fun seeing what it is. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

Overall, a terrible arc. I hope next issue we get back to X-MEN stories focusing on the X-MEN and their lives. Also, I pray to ANYONE listening at Marvel that Bachalo never touches an X book again.

First off, thank God that Bachalo is gone. The art was actually interesting and enjoyable to look at. It wasn't awesome or over the top, but it was a tremendous improvement over the disturbingly overlapping images that Bachalo cursed us with in the last arc.

Wow, wow, and oh man wow. Now this is what a multi-level, high energy, fast paced story is supposed to look like. Lots of tension and drama and suspense all leading to a (hopefully) strong ending next issue.

Overall, a great first rendition of both teams. Now we need to get some more actual writing into the book and some more action and I'll be back on board. So far, I'm not completely happy with this arc.

Here's the thing. I really didn't like the story at first. However, when I actually read all four issues back to back (which I did) it actually really grew on me. I loved the whole multi integrated teams working together to accomplish different goals.

Welcome to the new espionage team of X-Men. Is this team as stealthy as the former X-Force? No. Are they more violent? No. Can they whup your ass a whole lot better and faster? Oh hell yeah.

This issue was definitely better than the last one. Non stop action makes an issue fun to read and this one was all action. There was still a tiny injection of humor but it felt sort of weak. Victor Gischler, the writer, needs to either give a heavier focus to humor or completely abandon any attempts at it as it messes with the pacing and overall feel of the story.

At least the art is still top notch. Everyone looked amazing and the battle scene was really cool. Nice detailed backgrounds and line work also added to the overall visual enjoyment. At least the book has that going for it.

Wow was this an awesome issue. After seeing the last page, I'm just salivating for Issue #4. This one was non stop from the first page to the last. Jason Aaron is really maintaining a breakneck pace but is not skimping on story or action at all.

If these emotionally filled action packed stories are any indication of the direction that the new Valiant universe is heading, then you can call me a fan from day one. I can't wait for what comes next.
