Onomatopoeia reviewed Excalibur #5 Jan 9, 2020
7.0

Aside from some really great lines from Rogue (that Dolly Parton line made me chuckle), this issue was a bit flat for me. With the Mutant resurrection, I don't understand why Remy is so freaked out about Rogue...
The other big complaint I have is that this team has yet to mesh. Captain Britain has yet to really lead anyone, no one else seems to have an inclination for magic, and Apocolypse s more

Batman #85

The stunning conclusion to "City of Bane" is here! How will Flashpoint Batman be vanquished from our dimension? What will become of Gotham Girl now that she's betrayed all she knows? How will the Bat team cope without Alfred? Will Catwoman stick around? Who will rebuild Gotham City? Is Batman ever going to be Batman again? The event of the summer n...

Oh, so this is like a thing you're doing. Multiple story lines that have nothing to do with one another (or do they?!?!). *Sigh* I must have missed that in the description.

Not going to lie, I was excited to see Beak make a comeback, always felt that character had more potential (he and SquidBoy deserved a solo title). That being said, this issue just uses him as cheap nostalgia and a more

New Mutants #4

When Armor and her team set off to bring their friends home to Krakoa, they thought it'd be an easy sell and a quick trip. Then everything went sideways, and now they're in serious trouble-looks like it's time to call in the cavalry. But will that be enough to turn the tide?

Geez...didn't see this review from you coming. Methinks your reviews for Fallen Angels and Excalibur are Betsy-Centric driven...miffed that Kwannon got the code name, the Psionic Blade, and the Butterfly effect in the Kwannon/Betsy divorce? Lemme guess, your reviews for next weeks Fallen Angels will be under 5 and Excalibur will be 10.

Julian Keller - Dec 11, 2019

I rate every issue based on my enjoyment of them. Also my reviews for Fallen Angels are in line with 90% of the reviews for this book, and they all say the same thing, that this book is pretty much bad. Your rate of 10 on the other hand is the odd man out. But since you asked, my enjoyment of Excalibur comes down to my obsession with Arthurian/Celtic Legend and the fantasy genre. I don't particularly care about this Betsy Kwannon stuff.

"God lives in the moment a gunshot ends a life." I have never rolled my eyes so hard it hurts. By the time I recovered and my vision cleared, I was able to see artwork that would make a middle school art teacher proud, and that's about it.

I feel like I'm reading mythology being built out of the rubble of past failures. This is a reboot that doesn't seem forced like the films, instead I feel like I'm being reintroduced to old friends I haven't seen in years. You can tell that Hickman is passionate about the characters and giving them the respect they've been due. Please please please keep this up.

"Wait for the final issue" "You just don't get the story" "You are too stupid to understand it"
"Everyone loves HiC and those who don't are clickbaiters"
Well. Here we are. HiC is a collection of tropes coupled with some really nice (yet problematic) art. You can see that the artists, especially Mann - despite finding his portrayal of women problematic - loved working with this and put t more

@Hi! I'm TP your PS at the end of the review still stands. It does not sound like you are saying "maybe" therapy will work for you. In essence you confuse me, since you contradict yourself. You're also putting words in my mouth when you say I said Therapy is useless, again this is not a black and white issue. To be honest I think Therapy works for the majority, putting me on the side of Therapy. Just because it didnt work for me doesnt mean it wont help you.

Æther - Jun 1, 2019

I would never tell someone not to go to Therapy. However I sure as hell won't tell em all thier problems would be solved either. Infact it was that sort of attitude that made Wally feel so isolated, cause it wasnt helping him... at the end of the day, the only person that can fix you... is you.

I was going to write a long drawn out review of why this comic was a slap in the face. Instead, Mr. King, I'll give you the same amount of respect you gave Wally.

Fuck you.

This is issue as well as the series was so disappointing. What readers will find is an issue that explains the entire story. Sounds great right? Wrong! A comic that felt like a mystery with clues sprinkled in along the way turned into a writer withholding information for 7 issues, giving absolutely no clues, so he can drag readers along to make them THINK it’s a mystery when in all actuality K more

Ok… I get it, Wally is having a tough go of things. His family is gone and the love of his life doesn’t know who he is. That sucks and I sympathize. That does not give King an excuse to ruin Wally’s legacy. His revival was considered a “return of hope,” but what did we get instead? A bizarre explanation as to why Wally hacked Sanctuary, accidentally killed everyone and then proceeded to more

It feels like Tom King finally read Marvel's "Ultimatum" and thought to himself "hey I could do that too." There is no denying his skills and while the dialogue and art are fantastic, the deaths seemed gratuitous and cheap. I'm trying to give King the benefit of the doubt on this since this is the first issue, but come on... I'll hang on to see how things pan out, but it's off to a rocky start.

This felt like an obligation to the Heroes in Crisis story line. It was clear that Scott Lobdell wanted to get through this issue as fast as possible in order to get back to his story. Roy Harper's death should have been a critical moment in Jason's life, but instead it was nothing more than a voice message. Death doesn't have to be the cliche'it is in comics, but this issue was a bigger let down more
