Review: Superman/Supergirl: Maelstrom #3

It’s man against nature, and nature looks like it is winning With the Death of the New Gods, Superman disappearing in Trinity, and Supergirl going through whatever Supergirl is going through at the moment, you’d think another book featuring Superman, Supergirl, and the New Gods would not be high on my radar.  For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been looking forward to Superman/Supergirl: Maelstrom, for the great art, the compelling story, and the fact it gives readers a break from the complicated goings on in the main Superman titles.

Review: Terra #3

Faster is not always better I knew that if I didn’t jump on the latest installment of Terra, someone out there would be screaming bloody murder.  So without further ado, here’s your look at the third installment of the four-issue mini-series from DC Comics.

Review: Terra #2

See what happens when you don’t read all your comics the day they are released? Hey, I know this past week saw the release of Terra #3, but I realized when I sat down to read the issue, that I hadn’t had the pleasure of reading Terra #2.  Don’t ask me how that works, but needless to say, I think I was blinded by the incredible cover, and was temporarily mind warped into believing I had enjoyed ever page.  Now that the purple haze has cleared, here’s your belated review, with the Major Spoilers tease that is becoming more and…

Review: Captain America #44

Or – “Serious Flashback Time…” Part two of the first REAL story about James Barnes as Captain America continues apace, as the sins of the past come back to bite him in his cyborg @$$, and we find that even a kid in a band uniform called Bucky might have a skeleton or two rattling around in the closet…

Review: Hellboy: The Wild Hunt #1

Things are not well in jolly ol’ England After the very excellent Crooked Man run, and the equally enjoyable In the Chapel of Moloch, it’s time to for a much larger and deep storyline that runs maybe as far back as the first issue in 1991.  One thing that is a given, with Mike Mignola back, readers are going to be in for one hell of a ride.

Review: Secret Invasion #8 (of 8)

Or – “Setting Up The NEXT Big Crossover…”   Marvel has sent us from crossover to crossover in the last few years, from House of M to Civil War to World War Hulk to Secret Invasion, with the overall effect being that there is no longer a status quo to upend.  Since the entirety of their publishing plan seems to be “Everything you know is wrong,” this makes for a somewhat tempestuous relationship with books like this.  Now, Secret Invasion is ending, and the question we all have to ask is:  How long a timeframe have these stories all taken…

Review: Justice Society of America #21

What Gog Giveth, Gog Taketh Away What happens if you don’t do what a god tells you to do?  That’s what the members of the Justice Society of America are about to find out as Gog makes a demand that not everyone is comfortable with.

Review: Ex Machina #39

Or – “Soooo, I Finally Got My Scanner To Work…” Occasionally, you have a moment where life steps on your toes. So far, December has stepped on my toes, kicked me in the shmeckle, thrown dirt at my face, stolen my girlfriend, poured salt in my gas tank, and eaten my last Oreo. Okay… the whining is done, let’s talk ’bout comics!!!

Review: Batman #682

Wait, he’s supposed to be dead, right? What do you do when you have a buffer from the moment you “killed” the world’s greatest detective, and the Battle for the Cowl storyline?  Oh, and don’t forget that little thing called Final Crisis, which just so happens to feature the character that was just offed?  A trip down memory lane seems appropriate.

Review: The Chronicles of Dr. Herbert West #2

Horror updated for modern times Any fan of Lovecraft knows the tale of Dr. Herbert West, heck they even made a movie about it.  But what of those who weren’t around in 1921 and ’22, or who didn’t get the chance to see the brilliant Jeffrey Combs portray the Re-Animator in the three movies?  Zenescope Entertainment is taking the Lovecraft tale and bringing it to the modern day, complete with disgruntled doctors, reagents, and the dead come to life.

Review: Wonder Woman #26

In which Genocide walks the Earth The DCU experienced a year without Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, and since the One Year Later return, things have not been so good.  Superman got his powers back, only to discover he is no longer the last son of Krypton thanks to the New Krypton story line.  Batman went on a spiritual journey in which he killed Batman, returned as Batman, only to “die” in the pages of the R.I.P. arc and Final Crisis (two different titles to kill Batman?  That’s one bad S.O.B.).  Now it’s Wonder Woman’s turn to experience the one…

Review: Blue Beetle #33

I love it when a plan comes together.  Wait, there’s a plan? One of the great things about the Blue Beetle series is how the writers who have taken on the challenge of this series are able to bring the collected group of heroes together to fight a common enemy.  While the big bad doesn’t get his comeuppance in this issue, it’s good to see everyone come out of the woodwork to give aid to our favorite beetle in blue.

Review: Superman #682

We’re powerful, you’re not.  What’s the problem? The sixth installment of the New Krypton saga came out this week, and the story becomes even more interesting as the Kandorians decide it’s time to flex their muscles a little, and do something for Kal-El.  It’s just too bad those flimsy frail humans keep getting in the way.  Oh, and Mon-El and Bizarro make an appearance too!
