The Black Vortex Saga: (Belated) Comic Review Writers Edition

In commemoration of the collection release here is my review. Note: I was not able to get my hands on Guardians Team-Up #3 or Captain Marvel #14. Those titles flew off the shelves and were never refilled by Marvel, according to my LCSWriters: Sam Humphries, Brian Michael Bendis, Gerry Duggan, John Layman, Kelly Sue DeConnickNow […]

(Belated) Comic Review: All-New X-Men #37

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Artist and Colors: Mike Del Mundo; Additional Colors: Marco d’AlfonsoThis issue could be seen as filler afer all of the adventures in the Ultimate universe we just experienced. But we see some tremendous personal development for Jean Grey through her on-the-job training in Madripoor, courtesy of Emma Frost. She has to […]

(Belated) Comic Review: All-New X-Men #35-36

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Artist: Mahmud Asrar; Colors: Marte GraciaMr. Bendis brings the All-New X-Men back from the Ultimate universe and down a path towards redemption. The Jeans interact very well without just being a gimmick. They understand each other on a deep level, and not just because they are the “same” person. They like each other, […]

Secret Wars Concerns

So I subscribe to comics like some of you do. I have some coming up for renewal right before Marvel’s new “we’re blowing up everything event” Secret Wars. Should I halt the auto renewal until after the event of just go with it and hope for the best?How long is Secret Wars going to last?

(Belated) Comic Review: All-New X-Men #34

Lost in time and space the original X-Men + X-23 try to find their way back together. Jean and Miles Morales met up with the ultimate X-Men. The Jeans verify the identities of each other and the current situation in this wonderfully drawn two-pager: It mirrors this issue #32 spread: I’m glad Ultimate Storm still […]

(Belated) Comic Review: All-New X-Men #33

I think this my favorite recent iteration of Bobby Drake. Kudos to Mahmud Asrar for this melting effect. If they kept this look it would help show some evolution of young Bobby. We already see evidence he is learning from his new experiences with making ice hulks. I’m not sure of the creature he ends […]

(Belated) Comic Review: All-New X-Men #32

Last issue Jean ended up in New York but it was not the NYC of her dimension. She’s in the Ultimates universe and has come face to face with the Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales.  Status check: Warren Worthington, III, Angel, is in the Savage Land with our first post-Wolverine sighting of a clawed male character. […]

(Belated) Comic Review: Legendary Star-Lord #1

This issue is a wonderful start/setup/introduction to the “legendary” Star-Lord. Sam Humphries and Paco Medina have a great thing going on here. I’ve missed Mr. Medina’s work over in Nova. He was the artist when I came on board with issue #7. I read some Humphries with part of his run on Uncanny X-Force. This […]

Comic Review: All-New X-Men #30

Now THIS is what I’ve been wanting from an X-Men issue: some nice character development and good old relationship building. AND who can forget the amazing Sara Pichelli on pencils (plus an Immonen cover). Marte Gracia was expert on coloring this issue as well. The panels really jumped out to me.  This issue is (sort […]

Comic Review: All-New X-Men #29

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing X-23 in action. She’s pissed and I’m not sure if she’s so scary because she’s a female Wolverine or because she’s a woman with claws, literally. I know Wolverine is featured in every comic possible (and then some) but he has not been as utilized in battle in this manner for […]

brianmichaelbendis: EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK!! To celebrate battle of the atom making Amazons best books of the year so far list and the Trial of Jean Grey making the New York Times bestseller list…  here is Sara Pichelli’s x-men long-awaited debut from all new x-men 30  this issue is stunning  I probably should’ve waited till Friday […]

Review: All-New X-Men #28

Stuart Immonen is kicking ass and taking names. Maybe not true on the latter but the former is definitely correct. Just look at this panel. I could have put up the big X-Men on X-Men fight he drew up but this one expresses what I enjoy every issue. Now to the story, I’m not sure […]

Daddo’s House Update and Comic Review

So I had this whole big blog written detailing everything about this post. Then Bug stirred as she was sleeping in my lap. She also just so happened to swipe back on my browser and erase the whole thing. After that she smiled. Boo, Bug. Boo. I cannot guarantee that all of the information I […]
