My look back at the entire series 0

Only a few moments ago, I just finished the final volume of the Star Wars: Legacy collected trades (Star Wars: Legacy – Volume 10 subtitled “War”) so the finale is still fresh on my mind. However this is not a look at the final volume of the series, but rather the entire series as a whole. So to clarify, these are my thoughts on the whole story from start to finish, not just my thoughts on the finale.-Star Wars: Legacy is a 50 issue comic series by writer John Ostrander with much of the artwork...

Not Liking the New Direction 0

I'm a big fan of this series and I love this series a lot but I'm not a fan of the sudden shift in the direction of the series. After the darkest of the dark, we had the Most Wanted and Stark: Dissasembled arcs and suddenly out of the blue we have this complete shift with happy go lucky Stark: Resilient. I understand that in the Age of Heroes, there is a happier shift in the Marvel Universe so this sudden shift is to be expected, but (and I can say this about most comics in the Marvel Universe r...

Amazingly Gripping Origin Story 3

Comics need to be more like this. By that, I mean three things. Firstly, they need to get rid of all the outlandish "super" concepts and get closer to the core of reality. Comics need grit, realism, darkness, humanity, things that people can relate to. When the supernatural gets thrown in there, the reader loses the connection to the characters and the situations. Secondly, the art is amazing. The last five pages in particular are some of the creapiest and breathtaking things I've ever seen in m...

Not Great, but Interesting 1

This issue is meh'. It didn't blow me away but it was also much better than most of the comics out on the stands these days. Yeah, the art is great but the hype over the amazing art has died away. I'm not blown away anymore. The great art is something that I've come to expect. Therefore, what makes this comic what it is is the story. In this case, the story was mediocre.  It is cool to see Kate's past and see how she and her sister were glued together. They looked alike and even thought alike. T...

Fabulous 0

What we get here is a crazy Norman Osborn (very well written) who finally loses. And guess what? Iron Man doesn't do shit. It's all Pepper Potts here. Norman crashes, Pepper soars and the good guys win. Nice finish to this AMAZING arc, I'd say. Plus at the end, we finally get like a "team" dynamic set up and the players are all super awsome.  This arc has been so cool. It is like a long saga or some sort of epic tv show that keeps going. I love stories like these. In fact, I would rather see eve...

The Action Continues 0

This arc is fantastic. I really love it. For the most part, my comments are the same as they were for the last issue. I still love that this one part of a long ongoing saga. I really like the epic tone to it. Too many comics these days have short story arcs but I love that this one is long and drawn out. More comics should be this way.  I'm still loving the Tony Stark/Pepper Potts story but I'm still a bit confused by the Maria Hill/Black Widow story. Well, maybe "confused" isn't the right word....

Better Than Issue #854 0

I liked this issue better than the last one, which is good, but the last issue didn't really blow me away like it did for a bunch of other people. In this issue though, I really started liking it and I see the allure. I understand why people love this "new" series. The action is intense (this entire issue is just one confrontation between Batwoman and Alice) and I think it is both creepy and creative that Alice talks only in quotes from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I think that makes her so...

Fantastic Action Story 0

This issue feels a lot like a high-paced action movie and throughout the entirety of this issue, we are right in the action. This is soooo good. The art is stunning. Salvador Larroca has a lot of cool machines to draw, which he does well. But the storytelling is where this book shines. I love Fraction's writing. It is so good. This is like a high-voltage action story in full swing. In some ways, it reminds me of Brubaker's stuff during the Death of Captain America story arc that lasted 18 issues...

Entertaining and Good 0

After the previous arc, (one of the most amazing Star Wars stories I've ever read) I thought that there was no way the comic could possibly keep up with the series's recently high quality. Issue #35 was, to put it simply, a really good comic. It had a twist, action, intensity, a deep story and it changed the KOTOR landscape in a huge way, putting Zayne back on the map. It really took the status quo and turned it on its head. So, I was pretty eager to see what could happen next. Well, as you can ...

Deadpool's Still Got It 0

After that fantastic Bullseye arc, I wondered how this pirate arc was going to turn out. Though the art was not up to par with what we've seen previously, I thought that there were so many funny moments in it and that the book was just as good as some of the earlier issues. I love the scene where Bob's mom was talking about her underwear. I love the part about the guy who speaks french "Frenchy, French, French". Also, when Deadpool is buying the boat from the Russians. Another good part was when...

Well... IDK What to Say 0

I'm not sure how I think of this issue but I decided to review it anyway since I haven't reviewed one of these in a while. I hope that as I'm writing, I'll get some ideas.  I guess the best way to start is by talking about the story, which I don't normally do. Anyway, the cover art is totally unrelated to the story. It has nothing to do with the contents. Noh-Varr isn't even in this issue. But that's cool. I like that he's leaving. I think that makes it interesting. I prefer the story about the ...

I LIKE the Art 0

A lot of people have trashed the art in this comic, saying that it isn't as good as the art in the previous arc was. Well, I happen to LOVE it! I know it isn't as detailed, and so what? The dark style that Philip Tan does is really good and it really fits the tone of the book well. I think it is fun to look at and he really has a feel for the way that things are supposed to be. There is totally a big shift from this issue to last, but I think in a good way. With that said, I'm going to talk abou...

Better Than Issue #1 0

I give this five stars. Not one. Not two. Not three. Not four. But FIVE! stars.  The art is fantastic. Frank Quitely can draw the interiors of rooms with such detail and accuracy that it looks like a photo. Most artists draw the characters well but then put some mindless blobs in the background to make it seem like they're in a room or something. With Frank Quitely, he draws the room and you feel like you are inside of the room. His proportions are spot on and his level of detail is stunning. He...

Should We Go Around the Room and Introduce Ourselves? 0

"Should we go around the room and introduce ourselves?" - Moonstone"Why?" - Daken"That was my nice way of saying I don't know who the fuck you are!" - Moonstone  Classic! That part alone is funny enough to get my vote. Yup, that's right. I gave this four and a half stars. Maybe it should get more? I don't know. But this is really good and there are a lot of good lines like that crowded in here. I love the team, mainly because I don't really read team books that often. I don't really read Bendis ...

Amazing Change of Pace 0

To say that this book is all over the place is an understatement. What started off as a strong series quickly crashed into one of the worst ongoing books I've ever read. After about five really good issues and five pieces of bullshit, we get this issue rising from the ashes of what could have been a potentially dead series. And how did this do? Well it did great.  Too bad it took so long for this series to not suck. I hate to be so blatant about it but frankly, that's all I can say. With the awf...

Quality Issue - Super Long 0

Okay, so I read this and it took like FOREVER to read. I don't know how many pages this is, but frankly the back-up stories were not worth my time. Two things that I think this book needed, 1: better format. Brubaker's individual stories all got their own titles on the top but the backup stories did not and I didn't understand why and overall, the format just could have been more cohesive. 2: more reader-friendlyness. This is the biggest issue here. Who is Rikki Barnes? I have no clue. Why is sh...

Okay, so this AWSOME Issue Came out of NOWHERE!! WOW!! 0

I think it's fair to say that out of Dark Horse's two biggest Star Wars books, Star Wars: Legacy is far superior in overall quality. While Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has been slowly getting worse and worse in quality, Star Wars: Legacy seems to maintain its strong momentum. Ostrander (the writer for Star Wars: Legacy) just tells a more gripping story: the story of the entire universe in a bitter and dark civil war. This story? Well KOTOR (Knights of the Old Republic) does have its fa...

Sharon Carter Suicidal? 1

Just finished reading this and I really don't know what to think. This issue was all over the place. Let me just start off by saying that the pace of this issue was rediculous. Almost NOTHING happens here but when something DOES happen, it is so creapy and carries tons of weight.   Sharon Carter's life really sucks. There have been tons of people with awful lives in comics (Celeste Mourne comes to mind) but unlike Celeste from the Star Wars comics, Sharon Carter really has nothing to live for. I...

West Coast Avengers Style 0

It was cool to see War Machine turn into a team book. Essentially, we get the reuinion of the West Coast Avengers here. Now first of all, I just want to say that I'm not the kind of person who reads "Team Books". I have the issues from the big crossovers like Secret Invasion and stuff but other than a few specials, I don't really think I usually buy any Avengers books at all. I can't remember the last time I bought ANY Avengers book since... I dunno... a long time ago. So the bottom line is, it ...

Literally the MOST FUNNY Comicbook I've EVER Read 0

The title says it all. Wow! Five stars!? Where did that come from? Guess what, this comic is amazing!    SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content. I've heard the hype around this "Bullseye" arc. Could it be too good to be true? Well honestly, there is a part here in this comic where Deadpool breaks into a guy's house and orders pizza from his house so that the pizza guy can come so that Deadpool can kill him because Deadpool has to fill out a kill contract with his ex-girlfriend who...

Return of Treis Sinde 0

Right when the momentum gets going and things go crazy, this issue of Star Wars: Legacy comes out right in the middle and disrupts it all. This issue was good but not great. If anything, my star rating above is perhaps a little too generous. Anyway, I can make this review short and sweet so I will.  Good: - Seeing the return of  Treis Sinde was awsome. I love the way that John Ostrander (the writer) can sprinkle in very minor characters from previous issues and have them come back. He did the sa...

Where Did This Series Go? 0

When the art dropped out, so did the quality of this book. Splat. Done. Finished. Gawn. What? You don't understand? Okay, let me slow this down for you.  Pak's run on this series has had its ups and downs but it hasn't yet drifted into the "terrible" catagory until now. Why? Well his artist Leonardo Manco has been pretty good. Even if Pak's script is "sub-par" Manco usually has some pretty looking images to make up for the stupid story. Well guess what! Here, we have a suuuuuper stupid story wit...

The Most Epic Star Wars Battle in this Series Yet!! 0

Holy crap! This intense issue came out of nowhere! Be warned because I'm so amped up on excitement that I'm just about ready to spoil the entire book. Like seriously, if you have not read this book then I hope you stop reading my review now.  To start things off... Darth Krayt DIES!?!?! And he's betrayed by Wyyrlok!?!?! Wow. Didn't see that coming. Muur pretty much wrecked everybody. That dude is one badass explosion starter who pretty much just lights up the whole battle and lightnings whoever ...

Better Than Issue #4 0

This story picks up a bit. If you guys have been reading my reviews, you should know that I've been worried that this series is "dragging on" which litterally means two things. Firstly, I thought that this story was a little too long. Secondly, I thought that it seemed like Greg Pak was just making up this story as he went along, with no planning ahead of time. It honestly seemed like that and frankly, I still question if that was the case. However, it goes without saying that this issue was bet...

Nice First Half 0

Matt Fraction is a good writer. Some people have compared him to other good writers like Ed Brubaker, but frankly I don't think that the two are comparable. Sure, both authors are good at writing a single  long continued story rather than mini arcs, but their styles are very different.  In this issue, our three character cast gets another rotation. To my suprise, I think that Maria Hill might win this round, but Stark's bit was nice too. Pott's story was cool. It was interesting to see Norman's ...

I'm Reminded Why I Love This Series 0

Wow, Star Wars: Legacy continues to blow me away. In terms of plot, almost nothing happens here. The moment on the cover never even takes place. So why is this issue so awsome? The answer is quite simple. Writer, John Ostrander, is fantastic at character work. He's like the Ed Brubaker of the Star Wars universe, maybe even better. I know that might sound crazy, but his flawless character work and amazing knowledge of the vast Star Wars history makes him one of the single greatest writers I've ev...

Written Like a One-Shot 0

This book is sort of written like a one shot. The situation arises (crew finds ship). The situation unfolds (crew finds ghouls (space werewolves) in ship). The situation gets worse (Cade and his high-school crush get bitten). The situation gets resolved (Cade heals him and her).  So pretty much, this is more like a short "preview" than an actual installment to a greater story. I guess it makes sense because the last time we saw the character Celeste, she was escaping from the moon place in Star ...

Downhill...? I Dunno. Series Seems Like Its Getting Old 0

If you've been following my reviews, you should know that I've had a fairly positive experiance with this series thus far. The prolouge... well, I was overly harsh in that review. It was actually pretty good. The first issue was astounding. The second and third issues were also good, but not as good as the first. The fourth however, though it isn't bad, makes me question the general direction of the series.  It seems like Greg Pak has no real direction here. As far as I can tell, it seems to me ...

Pleasant Suprise 1

The following is a review for both Star Wars: Rebellion #15 and #16.  This two-part Star Wars: Rebellion part of the overarching "Vector" story took me by suprise. Is this really the same book that grew out of the horribly awful Star Wars: Empire comics? Apparently not.  But wait... I'm getting ahead of myself.  I have not read an issue of this series. Star Wars: Empire was bad. Like, it was REALLY bad. Yet, I had read so much of the series anxiously hoping for it to get better that by the time ...

It's Like 24 But With Superheroes 0

Anybody watch the TV show 24? Well this comic seems to be a lot like that. This issue (and the last issue also) plays out really slowly, almost as if it is in real time (which is awsome). The army-esque situation, the secret plot and the fact that this issue pretty much unfolds in real time, make this feel like watching 24 with War Machine and Ares thrown in for extra fun.  It really is like that. It might sound weird, but that's how I would describe it. It's like 24 with War Machine.  The fight...

War Machine Returns 0

We haven't seen much of War Machine in very many issues of this series. Before this series we barely even saw any War Machine at all. If it weren't for that new ongoing series of his, we might have totally forgotten that he was ever real! Okay, well maybe that's going way too far. Anyway, the bottom line is that the Iron Man/War Machine dynamic has been missing for years now. Well guess what? It's BACK!  Firstly, I need to give credit where credit is due. War Machine would not have been as super...

Didn't Stand Out... But I'm Reviewing it Anyway 0

This was a good issue. At first, I wondered if a descent story could be told in only two issues. I was suprised to find that this story was actually very good. It did what it needed to do and it only needed two issues to get the job done. The pace was fine. There was drama, there was action and there was intensity. Though we all know that Celeste is obviously not going to kill Vader, there is still a level of "oh my god, what happens next?". Maybe that's because the battle is so dragged out? I d...

First Dark Times I've Ever Read! GREAT Vector Improvement! 0

For all of you who have not read my reviews for the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic #25 through #28, I suggest that you read those reviews now. For those of you who haven't, some of my comments may seem a little odd for you. Just bear with me... like a brown bear. Oh, now I'm making jokes. This is stupid, I should just get on with the review.  This issue of Star Wars: Dark Times is the fifth part in a twelve part crossover story called "Vector". If you've read my reviews for the KOTOR (Kn...

Better? Yes! 0

To say that this issue is better than the three before it isn't saying much. However, this improvement was, to say the least, a good thing.  The opening part of this issue was probably the best part. We get a fantastic sort of description of the plauge from the old Sith dude who created the talisman. We learn why he created it, and we get something that actually makes sense regarding Sith mentality. To say the least, the opening three or four pages were some of the coolest and greatest pages in ...

Still Not Great... :( 0

If you haven't read my review for issue #25 then you will probably not follow this review too well, as I will talk about my previous review rather often.  As you very well know (or should know from reading my last review), I thought that issue #25 was okay. It was good as a setup issue to the Vector event, but it didn't retain a good "Knights of the Old Republic-isk" flair to it. The art was poor, and the story comprised of either setup for the crossover (which was actually pretty cool) and then...

Start of the Crossover = Different Take on the Series 0

So the big galaxy spanning crossover event "Vector" has hit the stands starting with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic #25. If you didn't know, this crossover will encompass all of the four Star Wars comics, KOTOR (this one), Dark Times, Rebellion and Legacy. The main plot of the crossover is simple... have the Star Wars universe get invaded by werewolves and show the event from the perspectives of different characters. This issue isn't much like a regular KOTOR issue. That is, it doesn't f...

To put it simply, I was pleasantly suprised by this issue. If you read my review for the online preview, you'll see that I am very critical of the preview issue.

But the bottom line is that I was overly critical on my review of issue #0.  But enough about the past. It's time to look to this issue! As I stated above, I wasn't expe...

My Review of "Knights of Suffering Part 1" 0

It has been quite a while since I reviewed a KOTOR (Knights of the Old Republic) book. If I remember correctly, the last KOTOR book I reviewed was issue #2. But it is time to move forward.  This story, Knights of Suffering, is the fourth arc in a large year long story arc called "Days/Knights". The first of these four arcs was called Days of Fear. That story pretty much split up the group and did a good job showing parts of the Mandalorian war plauging the galaxy. I liked that arc a lot. The nex...
