Jovian Reviews, June 2010: Part 1

Posted on June 18, 2010 at 11:32pm 1 Comment

Okay, many of these are current, many I just got around to reading after lengthy stays in my pile. Take them for what they're worth! Of course there are some mild spoilers, you know.



Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine #1

Marvel

I'm procrastinating doing any work for school, so I'm going to sit down and write some reviews on most of the comics I've read over the last couple weeks.



Fables 87-89

Vertigo Comics

Willingham, Buckingham, Pepoy, Leialoha

2.99


The winds are changing once again in what was once called Fabletown. In the wreckage of city hall, our story focuses on Bufkin the Flying Monkey, the dismembered head of Frankenstein's Monster, and the magical mirror. Only a book… Continue

Jovian Reviews: The Trade Shelf, October 3, 2009

Posted on October 3, 2009 at 11:05pm 2 Comments

It was a cold day today, and I was really tired. I laid in bed this morning and read two trades instead of getting up and doing yard work and laundry, not to mention grading the 67,349,309 papers that need to be graded. I'm sure you'll all forgive me.



Here are the two trades I read today, and my humble critiques:



Batman Cacophony HC

DC Comics

Smith and Flanagan


I had read a review of this one online that said the first two issues weren't that great,… Continue

Doom Patrol #2

DC Comics

Giffen, Clark, Livesay, DeMatteis, Maguire

3.99


I have to say that I enjoyed this story even more than the previous issue, which I liked enough to return for #2. That's saying something. It's quirky, but not Morrisonian, and this is a good thing for this umpteenth remake since Grant's version. I liked the way the people with the black voids for faces somehow looked like they were drawn by Keith Giffen, if that makes any sense. I really… Continue

Happy Birthday Man, assuming this is your real birthday and you haven't just put a random date in there...

Here's a birthday present for you.

Good luck finding the pertinent bits!

I'm working my way through those Zoids strips myself. I thought I'd read the whole run as the Morrison stuff is right at the end and I wanted all the context.

They're good fun. I think I'm scratching the itch I had as a kid when I couldn't afford those big lumps of colourful plastic that looked so cool in the ads.

Actually I'm downloading them as I just know I'm going to visit that site some day and see that they've been taken down...

If you happen to find out the creative credits for the different episodes and their publishing dates I'd be grateful for the info. I couldn't find them anywhere.

Sorry I missed your friendship request before now. I wasn't ignoring you, just couldn't see the fine print.
