Looking To The Stars - The Week In Reviews
I'm a bit spoiled for choice about one thing in particular to write about this week. Can't make up my mind, so we're going to cover everything I've read this past week. But just to make it interesting, I shall once again challenge myself with a self-imposed limit on words. One sentence; that's all.
ACTION COMICS #834
Nice to see the Queen of Stories back.
I think the only Aquaman villain we don't see here is The Fisherman.
AUTHORITY THE MAGNIFICENT KEVIN #5 (OF 5)
I miss Garth Ennis' Hitman... but this helps stave the want a bit.
Still one of my favorite books, even if the ending this time was a bit of a cop out.
GREEN ARROW #57
No comment until next month.
I thought Rann/Thanagar was over?
Note to Judd Winick - HERE is how to write Oliver Queen!
Man, that Deathstroke does get around.
SUPERMAN TRUE BRIT SC
TEEN TITANS #30
The Captain Carrot comic is the best bit of satire in a comic page in forever.
BOOKS OF DOOM #2 (OF 6)
Sadly, this is ten times better than anything being done with Fantastic Four elsewhere and the best treatment Doom had in a while.
GHOST RIDER #4 (OF 6)
For that matter, I miss Garth Ennis' Preacher too.
Worth getting even without the official Marvel Legends action figure promotion.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #21
Turns out he was only MOSTLY Dead!
PUNISHER SILENT NIGHT
For those of you offended by silly comics like GLX, try this!
SECRET WAR: BOOK FIVE (OF 5)
It's finally out, so we can all go back to forgetting it ever existed.
SON OF M #1 (OF 6)
Peter Parker Pimp-Slaps Pietro.
ULTIMATE IRON MAN #5 (OF 5)
See SECRET WAR #5
WHAT IF WOLVERINE
So basically, this is "What if Wolverine Were The Punisher?"
Tune in next week. Same Matt time. Same Matt website.
