Review: Agents of Atlas #11

Or – “Why Long-Distance Relationships Don’t Work…” Jimmy Woo and his Agents have crossed swords with tyrants, monsters, aliens, even the cyborg son of the villain known as the Mandarin, but nothing could prepare him for an opponent who shares his resources, who heads up an organization as pervasive and insidious as Atlas, who even has a bigger killer robot!  Worse than that, his antagonist has been revealed to be his long-lost love Suwan…  Fame.  Ain’t it a b!+c#?

Review: Vengeance of the Moon Knight #1

Moon Knight is one of those heroes that I have always been aware of, but never really got into. The majority of my exposure to him was back in the West Coast Avengers days and a few issues around the Atlantis Attacks event (does that show my age?) and my opinion of him then was so-so. He was another vigilante gadget guy, and he filled a small space in the series. I just wasn’t a fan. So I was rather surprised when I saw a new book titled Vengeance of the Moon Knight on my LCS shelves last week. I…

Review: Buck Rogers #4

“The year is 1987, and N.A.S.A. launches the last of America’s deep space probes. In a freak mishap Ranger 3 and its pilot Captain William ‘Buck’ Rogers are blown out of their trajectory into an orbit which freezes his life support systems, and returns Buck Rogers to Earth five-hundred years later.”  Don’t worry, this series is nothing like the 1980’s television series – and that’s not necessarily a good thing.

Review: Dark Avengers #9

Or – “How To Do A Crossover…” Hey, look!  It’s the much-awaited return of AVENGERS DOUBLE-FEATURE!!!  For some months now, the Olympian known as Ares has remained unaware of the activities that his son has been engaging in with Nick Fury’s Secret Warriors.  That situation is about to change, and the God of War is about to register his discontent with Nicholas J. Fury.  Parent/Teacher conferences have never been this interesting…

Review: Mighty Avengers #29

Or – “A Question Of Degrees…” So, there’s this giant super-menace in China, and the Young Avengers coming together to help Stature figure out what’s up with the Scarlet Witch, something with Jocasta and The Wasp sort of being a couple now, The Scarlet Witch having a secret, Quicksilver’s big lie, the USAgent being an emormous tool, and now Ronin has arrived…  I wonder if “The Kitchen Sink” would make a good superhero codename?

Review: Gotham City Sirens #3

Surprisingly enough, leading ladies Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn take a back seat in issue 3 of this new series. Don’t expect this book to pick up where issue 2 left off; we don’t discover what becomes of Harley who was kidnapped by Tommy Elliot (posing as Bruce Wayne). The storyline will pick up again in issue 4 titled “Hush and Harley”.

Review: Heroes: Season 4.1

To start off this review, I’m going to be perfectly honest with you all: while I have watched every episode of Heroes’ 3+ seasons, bought the graphic novels, and grown attached to a few of the characters, I haven’t been 100% for the show. Like many of you (I’m assuming), I was about to give out on the show halfway through the show’s second season. At the half season break last year, I stopped recording the show. I don’t know. It stopped connecting with me I guess. Despite all this, I stuck with Heroes, more on the principle need to…

Review: 9

Dystopian future. Epic struggle. War between man and machine. A band of survivors, struggling to fend off the opposing forces. Sounds like a big budget live-action science fiction film, right? Well, what if I said this is an animated movie? Starring sock puppets! 9, the newest film with the moniker “Tim Burton’s …” contains all of this, and beautiful graphics to boot. But does the story hold up? Take the jump and find out!

Review: Blackest Night #3 (of 8)

Or – “Corpses, Corpses, Everywhere, And Not A Brain To Think…” I had intended to review an entirely different book today, but upon visiting the comic store, I realized I had missed the latest issue of DC’s most impressive summer crossover in years.  A space story that’s also a horror story that’s also a superhero story that’s also a story about loss and death, the first two issues of Blackest Night were both shocking and entertaining, and took full advantage of our emotional attachment to DC’s characters (mostly by brutally killing them.)  Issue #3 promises more skull-faces, more monstrous perversions of lost…

Review: Adventure Comics #2 (#505)

Or – “Kryptonian Powers And Mental Issues?  That’ll Work Out…” Connor Kent’s return from the dead has not been without it’s complications.  Last issue, we saw his attempts to get back to normal and figure out the Superman side of his genetic makeup.  Problem is, he’s also trying to figure out his other genetic donor, one Lex Luthor.  Kon-El is headed down a slippery slope, and the return of Cassandra Sandsmark to his life ain’t gonna make things any less confusing…

Review: Ghostbusters: Displaced Aggression #1

Two movies, an animated series, and a plethora of games spread out over 25 years would lead one to believe that the Ghostbusters franchise is healthy and strong. There’s a third movie in the works, and the silver anniversary is upon us, and interest in the property is once again at a high point. With the release of Ghostbusters: Displaced Aggression #1, IDW Publishing once again taps into a popular intellectual property and delivers a story that attempts to reignite the ectoplasm fever in the four color world.

Review: Secret Six #13

Or – “Banshee, Debauchee, Back-Breaker, Immortal, Beast-Man, and Sharpshooter…”   Can’t you just hear Dungeon-Master intoning their names and giving them each their magical weapons so that they can fight Venger? No? Just me?  Bygones…
