TRUE BELIEVERS ABSOLUTE CARNAGE PLANET OF THE SYMBIOTES 1 Comic Review for week of July 31, 2019
I’m reading this and asking, who are these characters and why do I not recognize their motivations?

BATMAN LAST KNIGHT ON EARTH 2 Comic Review for week of July 31, 2019
Fantastic story and fantastic art, I love what is being done here.

PUNK MAMBO 4 Comic Review for week of July 31, 2019
Best shot of this issue was when she was looking into a mirror and talking about her origins, which I had no idea about. Valiant does that a fair bit, where they just throw characters out there with no introduction or “previously on”, so I guess I should come to expect that.

TRUE BELIEVERS ABSOLUTE CARNAGE MIND BOMB 1 Comic Review for week of July 31, 2019
I had no clue that Warren Ellis did a Carnage storyline and it’s everything I could hope for.

MARVEL ACTION SPIDER MAN 6 Comic Review for week of July 31, 2019
looked like a good jumping on point, I’m still saving the previous few issues to read at a later date, I’m still missing #2 due to Diamond or LCS shenanigans.

STAR WARS GALAXYS EDGE 4 Comic Review for week of July 31, 2019
The theme park comes to life!

G.I. JOE A REAL AMERICAN HERO 265 Comic Review for week of July 31, 2019
A.I. storyline stumbles on, I only have a couple more issues of this book to get through.

STAR WARS AGE OF RESISTANCE SPECIAL 1 Comic Review for week of July 31, 2019
Two good stories sandwiching an absolute shit show of a story involving one of the worst characters in the worst of the Disney Star Wars films, with a hamfisted story line about why you should just blindly trust someone telling you to shoot yourself in the head. Admiral Holdo was silly in the movie and she’s even worse here.

EXILIUM 6 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
A nice wrapup of a series that I came in about halfway for. It could have used some more polish, but what we ended up with was still a fantasticly drawn and scripted book.

ICYMI 6 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
I’m really digging this series of unrelated stories that have been released previously by PUBLISHER, but I happened to miss.

IT CAME OUT ON A WEDNESDAY 7 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
I’m also really digging this series of unrelated one shot stories. LOG and BIRD are amazing analogues or Conan.

KINO 17 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
Final Issue?

MIDNIGHT MYSTERY 1 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
There’s an audio version of this story as well. It’s not my cup of tea, but I love seeing this type of medium flipping.

MIGHTY MASCOTS 2 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
This story is absolutely bonkers in the best way possible.

SCRIMSHAW 3 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
The first couple issues of Scrimshaw had me on the fence, but now that they’re moving the story along, I’m digging what they’re putting down.

SECTION ZERO 4 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
A time jump didn’t help me feel connected to the story, I barely recognize everyone involved, which is a shame, I was just starting to feel like this was a great story.

SPACE BANDITS 1 COVER E PICHELLI Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
First issue of a new mark millar series, with a very strong start.

STAR TREK YEAR FIVE 3 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
Remember that Mobster episode from TOS? It’s back, taking some really cool leaps of imagination to make that planet less of a joke.

STAR WARS ADVENTURES 23 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
Chewing and Lando enter into a space race with an unexpected informant. The A story is much better than the B story this time around.

STAR WARS AGE OF RESISTANCE FINN 1 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
I’m not sure if I’m on board with every backstory for Finn making him out to be a saint amongst sinners, never having to pull the trigger when ordered to kill innocents.

STAR WARS TARGET VADER 1 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
Someone’s put a bounty out on Darth Vader! I bet it was the Emperor!

THE PUNISHER 13 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
Franks back in the US and with some IRL message on how he feels about police using his logo while being cops. Spoiler: cops should used The Punisher’s methods or logos.

TRUE BELIEVERS ABSOLUTE CARNAGE CARNAGE U.S.A. 1 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
American Carnage, speaking only as I could about a comic I can’t remember much of even though I read it just last night.

TRUE BELIEVERS ABSOLUTE CARNAGE SHE VENOM 1 Comic Review for week of July 3rd, 2019
Lady venom? ok.

Purchased, but did not read.

STAR WARS VADER DARK VISIONS 5 325x500 Comic Review for week of June 12th, 2019
Ah, the first book I actually read. I love the idea of a series of looking to an entire galaxy’s reaction to someone as dangerous as Vader running around with them.

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF TOYO HARADA 4 COVER D PRE ORDER EDITION 324x500 Comic Review for week of June 12th, 2019
I like the concept of Toyo Harada, wish he survived longer than he did, seems like he would be useful in the current Valiant universe.

THE PUNISHER 12 325x500 Comic Review for week of June 12th, 2019
In which Frank leaves Bagalia and does his best Rambo impression on a forest island surrounded by Hydra.

TRUE BELIEVERS SPIDER MAN VS HULK 1 325x500 Comic Review for week of June 12th, 2019
Purchased, but did not read. I didn’t need to though, as I remember this story, it’s amazing!

ACCELL 21 323x500 Comic Review for week of June 12th, 2019
The man that runs with balls doesn’t run at all!

G.I. JOE A REAL AMERICAN HERO 263 329x500 Comic Review for week of June 12th, 2019
A memorial day / fourth of july issue in which we are reminded that back in the 90’s there was a brave toy line manufacturer that made the decision to kill off entire teams of Joes.

INFINITE DARK 7 325x500 Comic Review for week of June 12th, 2019
I love what this series is doing, every issue is another ball of crazy that gets unspun.

HIT GIRL SEASON TWO 5 COVER B PARLOV Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
I’m not a fan of the character’s lips on this cover, they seem way too pouty. The story is dope though.

LIVEWIRE 7 Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
I love Livewire as a character, but I really feel like they’re slow walking her here.

PORT OF EARTH 11 Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
Soon to be a major motion picture! (maybe?) The original concept was interesting, but these last couple issues have really struck me as a great turn.

PSI LORDS 1 Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
A good start to the series, but I’m somewhat confused by a few things. Hopefully the questions I have will be cleared up in future issues.

SPIDER MAN LIFE STORY 3 Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
Purchased, but did not read, I missed the first couple issues and I need to get those to make sense of everything.

STAR WARS 67 Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
The end of the current writer’s story, it ends well enough with a planet almost exploding but not quite, much to the dismay of the death cult that had gathered to watch the fireworks. They didn’t go away empty handed though. . .

STAR WARS DOCTOR APHRA 33 Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
I love Doctor Aphra, but getting her mixed up with an galactic sniper rifle is weird. Enjoyable, but weird.

STAR WARS TIE FIGHTER 3 Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
Pew Pew Pew. Hard to write a story about a team you know is all going to die, right? Wrong!

TRUE BELIEVERS SPIDER MAN SPIDEY FIGHTS IN LONDON 1 Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
Remember that time Spidey went Far From Home and fight very bad guys?

TRUE BELIEVERS SPIDER MAN WEDDING OF AUNT MAY AND DOC OCK 1 Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
Remember that time that Spidey had to break up a marriage or two?

FIREFLY 7 Comic Review for week of June 19th, 2019
I’m torn on this series now, is it good? Do I still like it?

BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT 8 Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
A confusing but satisfying end to this character’s original origin story that isn’t for the character you thought it was originally an origin for.

KICK ASS 15 COVER B FRUSIN Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
Drug money and family do not mix. Family and fires don’t mix either.

PUNK MAMBO 3 Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
I think I’m coming down on the side of not liking this character. She seems too contrived.

STAR WARS AGE OF REBELLION DARTH VADER 1 Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
What happens when the most powerful force user in the galaxy is told to do everything a “Grand Moff” says, “to the letter”? Obviously the Moff dies, but it’s a fun journey to witness him being murdered in a painful way, along with most of his bridge staff.

STAR WARS GALAXYS EDGE 3 Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
Hondo! Love the guy on TV, he’s a little less tolerable on the printed page, but I think he’s written pretty well in this issue.

SUMMIT 15 Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

TRUE BELIEVERS MARVEL TAILS STARRING PETER PORKER 1 Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
Dude, Captain America is a CAT in this.

TRUE BELIEVERS SPIDER MAN VS. MYSTERIO 1 Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
You’ll never believe who’s behind Mysterio’s attacks!

VALIANT UNIVERSE HANDBOOK 2019 EDITION 1 Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
I honestly thought I would struggle to get through this, there are a LOT of character and team profiles here, but this is some of the best written and laid out bios I’ve seen in comics.

X MEN GRAND DESIGN X TINCTION 2 Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
Finally! The second issue, so now I guess I can star reading the other …3 that I have?

ASCENDER 3 Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

BATMAN BEYOND 33 VARIANT EDITION Comic Review for week of June 26th, 2019
I missed an issue somewhere, but this series is still kicking butt.

SCRIMSHAW 2 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
So much better than the first issue, but still confusing. But in a good way!

ACCELL 19 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Fast as balls, because he has giant speed balls that appear when he goes fast.

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER 3 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
I’m definitely dropping this one.

EDEN 4 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Fantastic story from this publisher, much better than all the other books, but for the same price!

EXILIUM 4 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Same level of story from Eden, this is a great book.

ICYMI 2 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
I did miss this originally, happy to have been introduced to this story and art.

G.I. JOE A REAL AMERICAN HERO SILENT OPTION 4 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Silence is best when it’s ended.

HIT GIRL SEASON TWO 2 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Better than the first issue of season two, man that first issue really rubbed me the wrong way.

THE FREEZE 4 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Another set of great twists that really work. Such a great premise that is actually being followed through on.

IT CAME OUT ON A WEDNESDAY 5 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Such a great story!

LIVEWIRE 4 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Definitely not a mini series, I’m happy to get more about this character, but I feel like they stripped her of all her powers just to be able to tell a story.

MARVEL ACTION SPIDER MAN 2 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Diamond neglected to send a copy.

MIDNIGHT MYSTERY 3 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Such a mysterious mystery! Well written with art that captured.

STAR WARS AGE OF REPUBLIC GENERAL GRIEVOUS 1 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
General Grievous never once captured my attention, and this story was just about as boring as all his other outings. They suggest heavily that his cybernetic body was a choice of some sort, but I find that easy to comprehend. It’s not like that body did very well against a single Jedi.

THE PUNISHER 9 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
The Punisher kills his way out of prison, then goes on a rampage to kill the guy that put him there. Next issue: more killing.

OBLIVION SONG 13 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Holding for back issue acquisition.

STAR WARS HAN SOLO IMPERIAL CADET 5 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
Last issue that ends the better of the two Solo book that have been coming out.

THE WICKED RIGHTEOUS 1 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 13th, 2019
This book left no impression on me at all.

FIREFLY BAD COMPANY 1 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 20th, 2019
Some much needed backstory for one of the more interesting characters from the shortlived television series.

SUPERB 18 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 20th, 2019
Another series that’s about to end up on the canceled list, though the b-stories in this are good cheesy camp that I enjoy, so maybe it won’t.

STAR WARS 63 324x500 Comic Review for week of March 20th, 2019
Princess Leia seeks revenge on a Queen that betrayed the rebellion. Leia’s going to be able to do it in spectacular fashion!

SPIDER MAN LIFE STORY 1 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 20th, 2019
Fantastic first issue of a series that I’m assuming is going to be just a summary of spider-man’s life, in broad strokes.

SOLO A STAR WARS STORY 6 324x500 Comic Review for week of March 20th, 2019
Apparently there’s an appealing death cult that goes places to watch things die, and I just love that.

INCURSION 2 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 20th, 2019
I’m really digging this story about a cosmic horror coming to Earth because it’s hungry.

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF TOYO HARADA 1 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 20th, 2019
I missed out on Toyo’s story previously in the Valiant universe, this is a great way to expose yourself to his fantastic origin and ideas.

X O MANOWAR 25 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 20th, 2019
RIP Man-o-war, guess you really can’t make it much past issue #25, ever, can you?

SEVEN TO ETERNITY VOL. 3 RISE TO FALL TP 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 20th, 2019
I’m saving this one for a raining day, it looks like it’s going to be a fun read.

MARVEL ACTION AVENGERS 3 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 20th, 2019
Holding for #2 to come in.

STAR WARS ADVENTURES 19 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 27th, 2019
There’s a funny story here about a battle droid who grows a conscious after getting hit on the head, it’s fantastic.

BATMAN BEYOND 30 330x500 Comic Review for week of March 27th, 2019
This is one of the best covers I’ve seen in a long while, I’m halfway considering putting it up on my wall. The story inside is pretty good, but man: that cover, right?

BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT 5 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 27th, 2019
Bloodshot get shot several times and butts heads with the HARDCorps. I think this is the first time that I’ve seen them in the new Valiant universe, and I like what they’re doing with them.

DETECTIVE COMICS 1000 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 27th, 2019
I’m not sure why, but I felt like this #1000 is much better than the Action Comics #1,000. Maybe I was expecting more from the Superman book, as I had picked up the previous 10 issues, something I didn’t do with ‘Tec. There’s a few good stories here, a couple clunkers, but they all have heart.

DIAL H FOR HERO 1 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 27th, 2019
I remember reading or hearing about DIAL H way back in the day, but other than knowing there’s a phone involved, I don’t remember much about the series. I think that’s for the best, as this was a great read and I’m sure that if I knew more about the original series I would have something to complain about.

THE FORGOTTEN QUEEN 2 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 27th, 2019
Her superpower: live a long time and cause men to be angry! The “forgotten queen” is a great read, but I’m not sure where they’re going with either the flashback story they’re doing, nor the present day story.

HEROES IN CRISIS 7 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 27th, 2019
There are no Green lanterns in this book, so I have no clue why the death of Kilowag is featured. We finally get the main story to move forward just a bit, but this really feels like a story that’s been stretched to it’s very limit.

STAR WARS DOCTOR APHRA 30 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 27th, 2019
Doctor Aphra and her love bot realize that they’re in love and that the bombs in their heads should be no barrier. Then, Doctor Aphra messes up and gives her robot lover all it’s memories back and he realizes that life is a joke.

STAR WARS VADER DARK VISIONS 2 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 27th, 2019
Vader is only featured on maybe 3 pages, but he looms large on ever single panel, to horrifying effect. A great story that should really be checked out to be believed.

INCIDENTALS 16 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 6th, 2019
Actions on the cover don’t actually take place in the comic book.

CURSE WORDS VOL. 4 QUEEN MARGARET TP 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 6th, 2019
Continues to both feel like a great epic story and an amateur comic book. I’m still going to read it though, I’m enjoying it thus far.

STAR WARS VADER DARK VISIONS 1 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 6th, 2019
Fantastic first issue of an anthology of horror stories involving the dark lord vader. In this one, he rides a space pony.

CHAMPIONS 3 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 6th, 2019
Still holding off on these!

G. I. JOE A REAL AMERICAN HERO YEARBOOK 1 329x500 Comic Review for week of March 6th, 2019
A great yearbook story that has little to nothing to do with the mainstory line, which I’m perfectly happy with.

STAR WARS AGE OF REPUBLIC – PADMÉ AMIDALA 1 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 6th, 2019
Padme kicks some butt and lets her friends get murdered, all to make her political station rise. Hmm.

HALO LONE WOLF 3 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 6th, 2019
Spartan Linda is off shooting things and finding exciting new Artificial Intelligence to play with. I’m still a huge fan of the franchise and this book continues to be great.

STAR WARS 62 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 6th, 2019
Jeddah is back!

NOBLE 16 325x500 Comic Review for week of March 6th, 2019
I think I’m going to drop these Catalyst books, they’re….not that great.

Notable mentions:

  • Captain Canuck First Summer Special – Printed the same month that I was born, this is a hilariously poorly printed and constructed book, there’s no set uniform for the Captain, the stories are jumpy, and there’s likely not a single page that was error free.  I loved this look into how poorly a book can be published and how quality control for both the character’s designs and print production go hand in hand in making a good comic book experience.
  • X-O Manowar #19 75th issue anniversary, which was shipped late by Diamond, a great story about picking up the pieces from the rushed and poorly executed “harbinger 2” mini series.  All the post-war stuff has been so much better than the actual mini series, I do wonder if that was intentional somewhat.  Also, the numbering shenanigans reminds me that it’s not just the big two that have problems with counting.
