im a week behind but been busy to do this. minor spoilers ahed
Green Lantern: New Guardians #7 - 4/5- So in this issue the new guardians are beat by this new enemy, Invictus and seeing as how their physical ablities arnt working kyle decides to use his words and to do the fighting. sure, actions do speak louder than words, but in this issue Kyle seems to prove against this by using his emotions, which is cool because dont these lanterns represent emotion anyway? aha well it show here and were seeing more tem development. we also get to know a little more about Invictus and what his beef is with larfleeze. pretty good issue. great art, decent story.
Aquaman #7 - 3/5- so a new arc starts and this issue begins with a bang, the return of black manta! i found this to be the only interesting part, the rest of the issue didnt really do a great job of getting me excited about aqumans old team, they barley even have anything to do in this issue until the very last page..guess just wait till next week.
Justice League Dark #7 -4/5- so with this issue we begin the rise of the vampires crossover with i, vampire. and way to start it with a bang! great issue, love the dialogue and the fight scenes. art is great!
I, Vampire #7 - 4/5- part 2 to rise of the vampires. also a great issue. we see where andrew bennet is in the afterlife talking to a mysterious person and we get to see mroe fights. i really like the art in this series. it really fits that dark raunchy tone!
The Flash #7 -4/5- wow this series is just awesome! i love the art most of all the panels are really fun! in this issue flash must make a sacrifice to stop cap. cold. basically save one of his women(yaa he's a G hes got two women ;p) and he must travel into the speed force to save the other woman. read to find out which one! XP
Ghost Rider #9 -3/5- so this marks the last issue of this ghost rider series..sad..i had my hopes this series could be good..but it was really doomed from issue 2. but lets talk abotu this issue. so basically alejandra goes nuts and wants to avenger her old villlage. so she finds adam, threatens to throw him off the tallest building in the world if he doesnt grant her power. and marches into hell to duke it out with mephisto..and beats him almost easily..whcih is odd? then johnny comes to save the day and becomes ghost rider again alejandra gets burnt and lives, but is now an established villain and johnny is now re-enstated as ghost rider. yay? well a very anticlimatic issue..but good art.
hopefully they make another ghost rider series in the future...with danny(hopefully!)
Green Lantern Corps #7 - 4/5- In this aftermath issue, we see both Guy and John face the music for what theyve commited during their battle with the Ringslayers. their results are similar, being they were both only doing their job. this issue basically reminds us why we like both these characters so much. their personalities really show well in this issue as they both have to man up and explain why they did what they did.
really good issue. my favorite of the Green Lantern title still so far. :)
Uncanny X-Men #9 - 3/5- with the AvX event coming up in one more month, the two factions team-up one last time to round up a bunch of prisoners that have escaped from the Peak. i didn't really like this issue only because i think the team-up couldve been better. all the stuff i wanted to see was narrated and showed cuts to different parts around the world. we are also introduced to a new enemy called UNIT. who id like to know more about other than that this issue really wasn't that good.
Batman #7 -4/5- pretty cool issue. were introduced to a new character that will probabaly appear more later on in the series. and we get answeres on how the talons performance are enhanced. this issue definitely will get you pumped for night of the owls.
Nightwing #7 -5/5- COMIC OF THE WEEK! man oh man, so the first arc for nightwing finally concludes and we get some answers about Saikos intent on killing richard. we also get a court of owls tie in in this issue and big revelation on dicks past and the mystery of haly's circus. this issue is a MUST READ!! also youll probably need to buy batman to get a better experience of this issues ending.
Haunt #22 -4/5- man this series is really cool, and this new creative team is just what this series needed. i know people are dissapointed that a powerhouse team of mcfarlane, capullo, rickman, glapion. left the title stranded and this title probably lost alot of its readers because of it..but if anyone is reading this. GET BACK ON THIS SERIES. its awesome! :D
Green Lantern #7 - 4/5 - a great issue to a begin the next arc, Sinestro forces a very unWILLing Hal to put back on his ring and dawn his suit once more as they now are to investigate the indigo tribe and find out more about what the guardians are up to. and in the issue we get some plot movement as far as what the guardians plan to do and even what they're willing to do to intiate it. great art in the book, pretty nice spread of hal decking Sinestro in the issue
Suicide Squad #7 - 3/5- so is would seem the origin of harley quinn is concluded with this issue and the squad is sent to the GCPD building to hunt her down. there wasnt anything key in the issue that made this feel like a whole new harley origin story. i think its something that couldve been saved for a mini series, like Penguin: pain and predjudice. But the ending in this issue will definitly have your Jaws Dropped. Cool issue, but not great.
Ultimate Comics X-Men #9 - 2/5- So besides ultimate fallout and Death of spiderman, im pretty much new to the ultimate universe. nd ive liked this series so far. .but this issue in particular had my hopes up because i like colossus. and in the issue i was not pleased with the only appearence he had in this issue. The concentration camp the goverment has kept the mutants in is about to have an uprising. and basically no action takes place in this issue. and when things are starting to get good the issue ends..and with that i say go ahed and skip this issue. but from the ending, you can bet next issue will be good, save your four bucks for that one :)
