REVIEW: ELEKTRA #1

Blackman and Del Mundo’s vision of Elektra is remarkably beautiful, set against a strange and dirty pastel-colored world where time and space are soft and undefined. This world is a violent one, as Del Mundo brings Blackman’s brutal story to the page through dramatic two-page spreads and fluid design, where memory and fable, past and present all run together.

REVIEW: ULTIMATE FF #1

This week’s Ultimate FF #1, despite my lack of interest in the universe, caught my eye. My favorite title of the old Ultimate universe was Ultimate Fantastic Four, so this seemed like a good reentry point to Marvel’s Ultimate line. Plus, I thought Joshua Hale Fialkov’s run on I, Vampire was one of the best comics I’ve read in years, meaning I had, if not high, then definitely moderate hopes for this book.

REVIEW: BATMAN AND…#30: WONDER WOMAN

With the return of a Robin to Batman’s side now essentially confirmed for this summer, the four part “Hunt for Robin” arc has taken on a greater bit of importance. I’m still left to wonder however, is this the story that should be told in the lead up to either the return of Damian Wayne or the debut of a new Robin?

REVIEW: RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #30

For all the disparate pieces of DC Universe pulled into this issue it could easily have wound up a trainwreck. On the contrary though, it actually all comes together quite nicely with each part serving its purpose nicely without distracting too much from the fun of the overall story. And then there’s the final reveal, which both gives us some slight insight into the purpose behind the aforementioned aliens and gets me supremely excited for next issue.

REVIEW: HULK #1

I may be overselling things here, but to me, what Mark Waid did in this issue may just be a game changer (a terrible buzz word I know) on par with what Dan Slott did in Amazing Spider-Man #698. Yeah. I’m serious. Fact is, right now I’m both excited and terrified to see how long Mark Waid plans on letting this story play out.

REVIEW: WONDER WOMAN #30

Brian Azzarello’s Wonder Woman, much like his masterpiece 100 Bullets, uses the possibilities of long-form storytelling to their full advantage.  As a result, his stories are intricate, and each issue is a small piece of a larger picture.  Wonder Woman #30 is a slow read on its own, but serves its purpose as another installment in a grand arc.

REVIEW: MS. MARVEL #3

As young a character as she is, Kamala Khan is making a big difference, creating a more inclusive stable of Marvel heroes and reaching out to readers who have otherwise never had representation in cape books. And I’d say she’s doing a hell of a job so far.
10/10
