My pull list for 2013! Please feel free to suggest a comic for me to check out or drop in the comments!
Running this in a same fashion as the last group. Three small reviews (with possible spoilers) for the three comics that work with H’el on Earth; Superboy, Supergirl, Superman.
And so ends the seventh month of One Sentence Reviews, complete with an updated leaderboard. It’s getting harder and I already know I’m going to have to consider what to do when the second wave of New 52 titles commence (it’d be silly to continue as I am). What that will mean I’m not yet sure … but in the meantime I’m sorry for the lateness of this week’s article and need to apologise in advance for next week’s, since I haven’t read a single issue of that batch at this stage.
As usual, each comic is scored out of five.
Warning, there could be spoilers ahead, although I try to avoid them.
Flash #1 I enjoyed, and this issue is no different. In fact, there are some interesting bits of Flash info tossed into this comic that I at least think readers who aren’t as new to the Flash as I am will enjoy.
Looking into issue 50-54. Issue 50 is a collaboration between McKeever, Johns, Wolfman, and Dezago. This is also Johns’ last work on Teen Titans and after this issue, McKeever takes over by himself for a while.
I’m a fan of the Teen Titans, especially the latest incarnation that went from 2003-2011 and as this relaunch makes it seem their entire history may be erased, I wanted to give them a farewell starting with issues 1-7 (also collected in trade form as “A Kid’s Game” or the soon to be released Teen Titans Omnibus 1). Like usual, beware of spoilers.
After Flashpoint #2, I was legitimately concerned for the series. The last issue was scattered and uneven, trying to do a bunch of different things and failing at just about every single one of them. The book was torn between being a big action book and a big ideas book, and it was failing at both. Flashpoint #3, however, brings us right back on track, telling a clear, focused adventure story. Spoilers below…
I love this book. Continue reading
