Review: Superman/Supergirl: Maelstrom #5

Well that fight was a let down The final chapter of Superman/Supergirl: Maelstrom is both awesome and disappointing.  For four issues we’ve been building to the battle of the century, but what we get is another life lesson everyone can learn from.

Image Comics
Review: Archibald Chases the Dragon

A vile den of drugs and villainy If I had to run down a list of movies that have a special place in my heart, Touchstone’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit would certainly be on the list.  I really fell in love with the idea of cartoon characters living side by side with humans, and when you throw in a big mystery and a song and dance number, how could you not like this movie?  Image Comics’ Shadowline imprint just released Archibald Chases the Dragon, and it brings back almost all of the memories from that crazy rabbit film.

Rapid Fire Reviews LVXXXIII: Dream Warriors

Or – “What Happens When I Continue To Fall Behind On Everything?” What’s the scraping noise?  Looks like the raccoon done busted out the heavy weapons, which means it’s time for another look at some of the comics that were too esoteric, too weird, or too numerous to look at individually: RAPID FIRE REVIEWS!  BRAKKA BRAKKA BRAKKA!  Make sure that the release lever is elevated, and that the debris shield is down, put on your safety goggles and PREpare… to REview!

Review: Superman & Batman vs. Vampires & Werewolves

vs. My Patience This past week finally saw the end of one of the most god-awful series DC has ever produced.  Surprisingly, I’m not talking about Final Crisis or Batman RIP, rather the horrid horror/superhero mini-series Superman & Batman vs. Vampires & Werewolves.

Review: Superman #683

Time for everyone to take sides If the Sinestro Corps War was the sleeper hit for DC last year, then Superman: New Krypton should be the hit for 2009 (although I think we all know that title will fall to Blackest Night).  Here Superman must decide what is best for is adopted home; stand with his fellow Kryptonians, or fight for what is right.  It seemed like Kal-El would stand with his fellow Kryptonians early in the series, but a single act of aggression has Kal firmly on the side of Earth.  Too bad there are 100,000 Kryptonians ready to…

Review: Green Lantern #36

Red, Yellow, Green, Violet and Blue… What Kind of Lantern are You? Geoff Johns has been spinning a tale of epic proportion across the entirety of the DC Universe, and it will hopefully pay off in this summer’s Blackest Night.  Until then, readers have been given a rebooted origin story of Hal Jordan, and are currently being fed the origin stories of the rainbow corps of lanterns.  We’ve seen the birth of the Red Lanterns in their blood spewing conversion, and continue to see the Yellow Lanterns and their baby stealing ways in Green Lantern Corps, but it isn’t until…

Review: Batman #684

When the Bat’s away… yada…yada…yada… Nightwing down?  Pizza Boy only hope for rescue?  Gordon and Bullock weepy over Batman?  Who is that girl in the tattered rags?  What the hell?  None of this makes sense from the previous issue…  Time to tune in for the latest installment of a world without Batman. (Cue organ music.)

Review: Blue Beetle #34

Wham! Bam! A Dead Blue Beetle? This title can’t come out often enough, but sadly, the faster the issues come, the sooner the series ends (thanks DC). With two issues to go, the big showdown between the new Doctor Polaris and Blue Beetle comes to a head. Only… Blue Beetle died last issue.

Boom Studios
Review: The Remnant #1

When Hollywood comes a calling to a comic publisher, it’s usually to take a property and turn it into a motion picture. In the case of The Remnant, the situation is reversed, as Stephen Baldwin heads to Boom! Studios to create a tale filled with suspense and the supernatural.

Review: Wonder Woman #27

Or – “Make A Hawk A Dove, End A War With Love, Make A Lah Farnah FOO!” Sorry, I was never really clear on what that last lyric was.  For months now, Gail Simone has seemingly been building up to something epic with her work on Wonder Woman, and it seems that we’re finally going to get a glimpse of what it is.  Last issue, yet another strange creature arrived to challenge the Amazing Amazon, but this time, the story ends differently…

Dark Horse Comics
Review: Buffy The Vampire Slayer – Season 8 #20

Or – “Time, See What’s Become Of Me…” I think the best part of Buffy (like any really good tapestry/universe story) is that the characters are allowed to change and grow, often in ways that you wouldn’t have imagined upon first viewing.  I found myself watching the Buffy pilot not that long ago, and was very impressed with how naturally the characters’ stories seemed to be, even when the source material was anything but natural.  Some time ago, Joss Whedon had pitched a Buffy cartoon series that would tell stories from the character’s past, with the addition of little sister…
