5/23 Comic Week In Review


Deadpool#55
Writer: Way, Art: Crystal, Rauch
Art looks a little more dark and serious than before. Deadpool gets bored and decides that he wants to do what he does best. In doing so he also realizes his mortality and that he can no longer be the best at what Wolverine does.
Verdict: SKIM
Secret Avengers#27 AvX Tie-In
Writer: Remender, Art: Guedes, Breitweiser
A lot to grasp, accept, and find out story wise. The ever impressive art alone keeps me buying this title. A story of traitors and loyalists.
Verdict: BUY
Batman Incorporated#1
Writer: Grant Morrison, Artist: Chris Burnham
Cover looks like classic Quitely art but inside art is not quite as good. Feels like just another Batman & Robin title that doesn't quite gel with any of the other Bat books or NEW52. Art is almost as good as Frank Quitelys but not quite. I would have preferred a different more unique style.
Verdict: PASS
Smallville#1
Writer: Brian Q. Miller, Artist: Pere PĂ©rez
Continuance of the show in comic book form. The dialogue and looks of the actors does not cross over well at all. I had to force myself to read this all the way through. The art was horrible, story was boring and hard to get into.
Verdict: PASS
The Mighty Thor#14
Writer: Matt Fraction, Art: Larraz, D'Armata
I've never liked the way Fraction writes Thor and I still don't. The story was confusing and a little hard to get into. The art is in your face explosively colorful and visually enticing.
Verdict: SKIM
The Flash#9 Manapul/Buccellato
Story is confusing at first. I was really excited about this but it was really down played and kind of a let down. It ended with a confusing cliffhanger with a lot of open ended questions. The art was as always wonderful and tantalizing even though it stuck primarily with one color palette.
Verdict: BUY
The Amazing Spider-Man#686
Writer: Dan Slott, Artist: Stefano Casselli
The art is back to being some of the best Spidey art I've ever seen. The color palette is all over the place in the most amazing way. The "performance" was kicked up to a whole new level with twists and turns. This is Spider-Man at its best.
Verdict: BUY
Aquaman#9
Writer: Johns, Art: Reis, Prado, Albert
Short, quick, easy, intense, awesome read. Aquamans past meets his present as he searches for his greatest foe. The art does most of the story telling quite impressively all the while looking better than ever.
Verdict: BUY

CoTW: Amazing Spider-Man#686
PoTW: Secret Avengers#27
SoTW: Aquaman#9
BnBoTW: Aquaman#9
