Review: Jonah Hex #45

Nineteen sixty-four was the year that we were first introduced to the ‘Man With No Name’ and over the course of three movies the wise cracking, fast killing; laconic stranger redefined the basic archetype of the traditional cowboy. The anti-hero was all the rage at the time in mainstream crime noir cinema and Sergio Leone bravely decided to try and transfer that imagery over into the Western genre. He succeed in his task so well that it encouraged his leading actor to try his hand, in nineteen seventy-two, at directing his own version of the character in the movie ‘High…

Review: Batman Confidential #31

Let’s return to the days of the cold war… Batman Confidential has had a lot of ups and downs for me.  On the one hand the series gives DC a chance to tell origin stories about Batman and his villains, tech, and history, but on the other hand, DC canceled Legends of the Dark Knight (I know, I’m a broken record).  With the holiday weekend upon us, what better way to show our patriotism than having Batman take on the Russians, or more specifically, the KGBeast.

Review: Red White And Blue Rapid-Fire Reviews – Now With Roman Candles!

Or – “We Hold These Comics To Be Self-Evident…” Today is American Independence Day, commonly referred to as July 4th, as it takes place on the 4th of July, hence the name, and that’s why the song is called Alice’s Restaurant… To all the faithful Spoilerites of the United States, Happy 4th of July. For those of you who are from elsewhere, sorry about all the hegemony and stuff. Either way, it’s time for another bout of our Rapid Fire Reviews, bite-sized chunks of comics that I either couldn’t write three paragraphs about, or ran out of time to cover.…

Review: Uncanny X-Men #513

Or – “The Return Of The Greatest X-Man Of Them All!”  It has been many years since the original five X-Men teamed up to battle various fat, bald, ugly pro-wrestler types.  In the ensuing years, seemingly hundreds of mutants have joined various incarnations of the X-Franchise, but everybody seems to forget the FIRST mutant recruit to join the then-handful of X-Kids…  The man called The Mimic.  In a world gone mad, where no one’s loyalties can be easily discerned, this legendary lost hero has returned, to once again spearhead the team he once led. (Oh, there’s some other guys in…

Review: Captain America – Reborn #1 (of 5)

Or – “This Just In…  Former Captain America Steve Rogers Is Still Dead, Perhaps.” The first thought that I had upon picking up this book, alleged to be a huge bombshell and to reveal the giant hidden workings of the Marvel Universe and the Red Skull’s mind?  “Man, this Bryan Hitch art looks exactly like his Ultimate Captain America.”  Is this mere coincidence?  Or harbinger of something more going on within the book?  

Review: Batman and Robin #2

The second installment of Grant Morrison’s Batman and Robin hit the stands today.  Now that the euphoria of the first issue has worn off, how well does this issue hold up?

Review: Grimm Fairy Tales #39

The keeper of the tales has been trapped for a while by her nemesis, and now she’s back to make people’s lives turn around for the better.  But what if the person who needs to change, would really rather return to what they know best?

Review: Final Crisis Aftermath – Dance #2 (of 6)

Or – “Something Is Rotten In The State Of Hokkaido…” Last issue, the Super Young Team went global and set out to conquer the Western Hemisphere the way they’ve captured the imaginations of Japan.  If only this decision weren’t based on the machinations of a mysterious cabal that wants to cover up strange and unsavory doings back home in the Land of the Rising Sun…

Dynamite Entertainment
Review: The Boys – Herogasm #2 (of 6)

Or – “How Can They Trump Last Issue’s Antics?” So, what would be more over-the-top than last issue’s hijinks, including group sex, homoerotic trysts, and all manner of pruriency?  How about some drugs to go with our sex and violence?  Maybe even a government official in a compromising situation?  Or how about the whole thing getting even more complicated than before, thanks to Vought-American interference?

Review: Detective Comics #854

Woe is the comic fan who bemoans the loss of Paul Dini in Detective Comics and refuses to jump on a book featuring a strong female lead, for that comic book reader is going to miss out on one heck of an issue.
