Review: Justice League of America #27

Or – “1993 Called.  It Wants It’s Comics Back…” I Will Not Make A “Kiss Me” Joke.  I Will Not Make A “Kiss Me” Joke.  I Will Not Make A “Kiss Me” Joke.  I Will Not Make A “Kiss Me” Joke.  I Will Not Make A “Kiss Me” Joke.  I Will Not Make A “Kiss Me” Joke.   I Will Not Make A “Kiss Me” Joke.  I Will Not Make A “Kiss Me” Joke.  I Will Not Make A “Kiss Me” Joke.  I Will Not Make A “Kiss Me” Joke.  

Review: Marvel Zombies 3 #3 (of 4)

Or – “How Aaron Got His Groove Back…” The strip-mining of Marvel’s 2006 surprise monster hit (pun fully intended) continues apace, with the dead folks engineering several brilliant strokes, even finding a way to crack the dimensional barrier into the regular Marvel Universe (which, now that we think of it, may be the first real proof that the 616 and Ultimate Universes actually HAVE the ability to crossover, even through an intermediary) and finding ways around the endless hunger within ’em.  Of course, they’re still $&@%ing flesh-eating monsters, so they got that going for ’em.  Which is nice…

Dark Horse Comics
Review: Conan the Cimmerian #6

Perhaps Crom has something more in store for you, Conan Conan’s adventures have taken him to far away lands, where he has beheaded many enemies, bedded many ladies, and beheld many a site.  Now his travels are taking him back home, and while homecomings can be a good thing, for Conan, it’s sure to bring more trouble for the once and future king.

Red 5 Comics
Review: Atomic Robo: Dogs of War #5

If you thought the second volume of Atomic Robo was spinning its wheels, you might want to pick up the fifth issue and give it a read.  The Sparrow is out, Milligan is in, and Robo has to stop the greatest weapon ever developed.

Review: Tangent: Superman’s Reign

Big Battle Coming Right Up The Tangent Universe is one of those fifth week events that introduced a new group of heroes from a parallel – or rather a tangent – universe.  We were introduced to the likes of the Green Lantern, Flash, and others, who had similar powers but were not the heroes we know. Tangent Earth is nothing like New Earth.  Sure it has the same land masses, the similar characters, but on New Earth, Superman hasn’t taken control of the planet and isn’t subjugating his will on everyone.  So what happens when Harvey Dent (Tangent Earth Superman)…

Review: Terra #4

In which things get wrapped up too quickly I’ve been digging the Terra mini-series from Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray.  The introduction of a new character to the DCU is a fresh one, full of interesting adventures.  Sadly, the four issue run has come to a close, and I can’t help but wonder why this wasn’t a six-issue mini-series.

Review: Batman and the Outsiders #14

Riddle me this:  When is Batman and the Outsiders not Batman and the Outsiders? The answer of course Dear Reader, is when the issue features neither Batman nor the Outsiders.  But there in lies the juicy bits of the issue.  With the “death” of Batman, there has been chaos throughout Gotham City.  And while there are those that are scrambling to fill in the void, there are few who are willing to step up with a new plan.  Someone like Batman’s daughter. Wha?

Arcana Studios
Review: The Greatest American Hero #1

Believe or not, they did make a comic book In my youth, I spent my summers running through the fields, firing up the newly purchased Commodore 64 and trying to defeat the Wizard of Frobozz, watching The Greatest American Hero on television, and singing along to my own 45 (that’s a record for you young ‘uns) of Believe it or Not. Jump forward 27 years and now I enjoy chasing my kid down the hallway, firing up the latest installment of World of Warcraft and trying to defeat the Lich King, singing along to Believe it or Not on my…

Review: A Very Rapid-Fire Christmas…

Or – “Wasn’t There Another Reviewer At Major Spoilers?  Some Old Dude?” It’s a little known fact that the month of December contains space-time anomalies that keep you from ever completing anything on time.  Add to that a new paradigm at my office, wherein my team load has doubled and my patience halved, a tendency to want to spend time with my friends around the holidays, a scanner that works about half the time and my recent birthday, and I admit it…  I may have been neglecting my reviews.  Still, t’is nobler in the mind to beg forgiveness than it…

Review: Robin #181

Wow.  I mean, really, wow. After the climactic explosion that ended last issue, and the announcement DC was canceling the Robin title in February, the fate of Tim Drake really seemed to be in question.  Fortunately, comic books run like the Saturday morning serials of yesteryear, the reports of Tim’s death have been greatly exaggerated.  That doesn’t mean Robin’s life won’t be shaken, in fact this issue might be the event that changes everything…again!

Dynamite Entertainment
Review: Army of Darkness #15

Hellbillies and Deadnecks Poor Bruce Campbell Ash.  He’s been to hell and back, been sent to witness the birth of the Marvel Zombies, and has kicked it a time or two with Xena.  After many blood filled adventures, it finally looks like our hero has found a bit of peace guarding the Necronomicon in a far off mountain watchtower.

Review: Superman/Batman #54

With Great Power Comes Much Punching and Fighting With all the craziness that is going on in the DC Universe, it’s nice to know you can sit down and read a title that both follows and breaks continuity at every turn.  Superman/Batman reintroduced Supergirl to the world, but it also featured a run where the entire universe went flippy a couple of times, and no one in any of the other titles noticed. We’ve now come to a tale that has the Silver Banshee doing the thing that she does so well, which had the odd effect of Batman acquiring…
