Based on last week’s call for
feedback, I’ve put some emphasis on the
collections of reviewed material, and included links
to the reviews. The review of the second arc of
Runaways I mentioned last week will still go
up shortly, and I’ll post a review of volume three
when it gets reprinted next Wednesday. After that,
rather than continue that series, I’ll focus on
reviewing issues of comics whose trade paperback
collections are just about to come out.
- 52 WEEK #50
- BATMAN AND THE MAD MONK – Read Timeshredder’s
- BIRDS OF PREY #105 – Gail Simone will take a few
more months to wrap up loose ends before she moves to
Wonder Woman and Sean McKeever takes over this
- BRAVE AND THE BOLD #3 – I’ve liked the first two
- FLASH THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #11
- JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #8
- NIGHTWING ANNUAL #2
- SHOWCASE PRESENTS SUPERMAN VOL 3 – I stopped
collecting after the first two. DC was really,
really saccharine back in the 50s.
- SUPERMAN BATMAN #34
- WONDER WOMAN THE GREATEST STORIES EVER TOLD
- WORLD WAR III PART ONE A CALL TO ARMS
- WORLD WAR III PART TWO THE VALIANT
- WORLD WAR III PART THREE HELL IS FOR HEROES
- WORLD WAR III PART FOUR UNITED WE STAND
- BATTLESTAR GALACTICA #8
- ANNIHILATION BOOK 2 – I’ve heard this effectively
reinvigorates Marvel’s cosmic characters, but I
haven’t read it myself yet.
- CABLE DEADPOOL #39
- CIVIL WAR AMAZING SPIDER-MAN – Reviewed here.
- CIVIL WAR FRONT LINE BOOK 1 – Reviewed with the
contents of Book 2 included right here.
- CIVIL WAR THE CONFESSION – A second printing of
the material reviewed here.
- CIVIL WAR THUNDERBOLTS – The first part of this
collection was reviewed here.
- DAREDEVIL DEVIL INSIDE & OUT VOL 2 – While we
haven’t formally reviewed any of Brubaker’s work on
Daredevil, it’s HIGHLY recommended. So far, it’s
been better than a lot of Bendis’ work. Brubaker
keeps the character depth and still maintains high
levels of action. SPOILERS TO GET CAUGHT UP TO THIS
POINT (though I strongly recommend just buying
Brubaker’s first arc and reading it yourself): This is Brubaker’s second arc. In the
first arc, Matt is lead to believe that Foggy Nelson
was murdered, though the reader eventually learns he
survived and was placed in the witness protection
program. Matt, who was imprisoned at the end of
Bendis’ run, is cracking in prison, and constantly
beating the crap out of the other inmates. Part of
the pressure is due to another man in the Daredevil
outfit still running around in Hell’s Kitchen,
fighting the good fight. Matt eventually breaks
free, with the help of the Punisher, Kingpin, and
Bullseye, to confront the second Daredevil, who turns
out to be Iron Fist, being payrolled by someone
anonymous. The arc ends with Matt setting out to
track down Foggy’s “killer,” who is also the person
paying Iron Fist to keep up the ruse. End
- MIGHTY AVENGERS #2 – The first issue was a lot of
fun, and was reviewed here.
- MOON KNIGHT #9 – This should wrap up the Civil
War crossover. I’ll review it soon, but as I’ll be
out of town until late Saturday, it won’t be right
- SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN #37
- SQUADRON SUPREME HYPERION VS NIGHTHAWK #4 (OF
4) – The end of this enjoyable miniseries.
- ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #108 – The Ultimate Knights
story arc, which is also Bagley’s last arc as
- ULTIMATE X-MEN #81
- YOUNG AVENGERS VOL 2 FAMILY MATTERS TP – I
enjoyed (but didn’t review) the first arc, so I’ll
definitely pick this one up.
