Comic of the Week: Feb. 21, 2012

To the books!

Comics Round-Up:

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #679.1 - 3/5 - I really don't get these "Point One" issues. I don't really care, I understand who Spider-Man is, I figured out where he worked from the first issue of it I picked up (#677) and I really don't need to be helped into this storyline. Either way, it was nice to see more Spidey I guess. #680 will be better though.

AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #4 - 3/5 - I already miss Joe Mad's art. It's a shame he was on for such a short time but it was more of a treat, I guess. The new art isn't bad, though. This issue was just ok. I didn't hate it, but didn't find it mind-blowing either.

CATWOMAN #6 - 4/5 - I love me some Catwoman! This issue was a great read from her being interrogated, to her breaking out (spoilers?), to her interaction with the Bats. Can't wait to see how long it takes for Bruce to come back to the honeypot. (no pun intended)

GREEN LANTERN CORPS #6 - 4/5 - The end of this arc is what I wanted this series to be, now to see if it stays there.

HUNTRESS #5 - 4/5 - Huntress was kicking all sorts of ass in here! As much as I love Helena, I just want this to end. I would have been fine with it ending on this issue but I'm fine with another issue if it's as action-packed as this one.

PENGUIN: PAIN AND PREJUDICE #5 - 5/5 - An amazing conclusion to an amazing mini-series! Can't say much more than that you must read this series, amazing all-around!

RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #6 - 4/5 - Starfire and Jason origin here. Loved it! Everyone who gives this series crap for issue #1 and Starfire's appearance needs to shut up already. This is a great series, if you're not reading it, it's your loss.

UNCANNY X-MEN #7 - 4/5 - Fun issue to an interesting story arc. Like I said last issue, Magneto and Psylocke are my favorites, and they deliver in here, albeit very little.

WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN: ALPHA & OMEGA #2 - 4/5 - This series just seems pure enjoyable and I'm excited for the rest of it. Quentin is such a jerk, that I can't help but enjoy reading about him!

Comic of the Week:

BATMAN #6 - 5/5 - Scott Snyder, if you could write Batman for the rest of your life, that would be awesome. Everything you have done in this series is amazing! The Court of Owls conclusion (kinda) is no exception. Bats came back from death basically and kicked some owl tail! Really great writing and the art helps that a lot! Can't wait for #7 and the Night of the Owls event after that!
