Very Good 0

When I saw that there was a Green Lantern and Space Ghost team-up, I was really excited, and when I read it, I wasn't disappointed. I was really glad that Ariel Olivetti was doing the art, he did the art for the pretty cool but a little too gritty 2005 Space Ghost miniseries. Olivetti's art is very good, though sometimes looks a little off, but overall it's pretty cool, in fact I would highly recommend Martian Manhunter Annual #1 - Heart's Afire, his artwork is great in that. The writing in this...

Amazingly Fantastic! 0

This is an incredible issue, even better than Man-Thing #6 - And When I Died...!, which is also a fantastic issue by the way. In this, instead of creating a statement about humankind through Man-Thing by using him as an observer of it like they usually do - and sometimes just an anthropomorphized metaphor for nature - they show a portrait of a mind of a wretched man named Brian Lazarus who has become detached from both reality and sanity. They do this via Man-Thing's ability to feel other peop...

Best Issue Yet 0

I think these comics have grown on me, either that or this issue finally used some of it's previously unused potential. I think what really sets this issue apart from the previous ones is that there isn't really all that much pointless blood and guts, theres a couple, but even those aren't as in your face as other issues. I also liked the way the main villain - The Cheese - was taken out, when Foolkiller tells The Cheese he'll offer him a chance to live, he tells him that he'll flip a coin and i...

Meh... 0

This issue is pretty much the same as the previous ones, and has a lot of the same problems too. There is still pointless goriness which serves no other purpose than to be R rated. This really bothers me, because there are good ways to use gore, a great example is in Batman: The Killing Joke. In that, they used really good, detailed art to depict bloodiness which creates an emotional response from the reader by using captivating and beautiful art to hold the eye on whatever horrific thing wa...

A lot Better Than The Last Issue 0

This comic is a pretty big step up from the last one, this one seems to actually have some heart to it. In this issue they focus more on the relationship between Nate McBride and his daughter. His daughter is suffering from a heart condition and Nate is doing everything he can to get money for her operation. His daughter hates him though, because Nate got his wife and youngest daughter killed because he pocketed some money from the gambling pushers he worked for. The ironic thing is, he used...

Not Too Good But Not The Worst Comic In The World 0

The second issue in this miniseries isn't much better than the first. However the things that I liked in the first one are still good, such as the art, but the comic still isn't that great. They did the origin story in this one. They used the cliche murder/death of the parent thing, which is really getting old, but what I did like is that that isn't what pushes him over the edge. Well, actually I liked and disliked that, on one hand, it's less cliche, but on the other hand what does push him...

Gritty and Dull 0

This comic just plain fell flat. I mean the art was pretty good, some of the background scenery looked pretty cool - it was well drawn and well colored - but even that was kind of annoying. A lot of MAX comics have the tendency to shadow stuff a lot, especially characters' faces, which can get pretty annoying. It's kinda like how some movie scenes are really dark and you can't really see what's going on. For example when I was reading "Foolkiller White Knights" Foolkiller meets up with Punisher,...

Oh My God I loved This issue! 0

There is just so much cool stuff in this issue. First of all you get Jonny Quest crossed over with Birdman, which is a dream come true for me. They used Birdman's original secret identity which isn't really well known, so obviously the writers are huge fans of the characters. I also really liked the Space Ghost tease, which will be really cool in the next issue. I think it's especially cool that they're finally bringing Space Ghost back into comics after his extremely long absence from comi...

Great Issue 0

This comic is really, really good. It features incredibly unique storytelling, as it combines detective/noir with the superhero. While this has been done before, it has never been done in such an updated and relevant way. So while it sheds new, originality on modern superhero comics, it also sheds new light on modern detective stories. The art is really good as there is a lot of experimentation in it. With each panel new variations and ideas are explored, but at the same time it seems to m...

why is Martian Manhunter So F@#&ing Cool? 0

This is the 4th Martian Manhunter comic I have reviewed, and each time I have been left very pleased and entertained by the issues. The same goes for this issue, the narration is very good and the art is as enthralling as usual. The way that the Headmaster and his minions are drawn are really detailed, and the panel presentation is very well crafted. In the end, this issue is just another very good comic book with very good art, very good writing and a really cool narration aspect, just like...

A very well explored origin story. 0

This is probably one of the best origin stories I have ever read. The way it is presented to the reader is beautifully crafted, as it is all shown through the perspective of Martian Manhunter. As I am beginning to notice, Martian Manhunter comics have really great narration, this is a very strong point of this particular issue. I really liked the art, it completely succeeded in capturing the essence and feeling of the way the writer wants you to perceive Mars, which just goes to show how much...

Good, But Not as Good as The First Issue 0

I reviewed the first issue of this and very much enjoyed it, while I did also enjoy this issue I didn't think it was as strong as the previous one was. The art is still good, but again, isn't as good as the last one, because Ariel Olivetti wasn't doing it, but I do think that the coloring was actually a bit better. It's also more of a Justice League Story with Martian Manhunter narrating over it, which by the way, his narration is one of the better things in this comic. I didn't really like the ...

A Good Issue 0

I Liked this comic pretty well. The story is obviously strange (I mean, it's Howard The Duck.) I liked the art, it felt like a throwback to the 90's style, and the villain was pretty funny. It gets a bit gratuitous, but it's Marvel MAX, it's supposed to be rated R. So if you are uncomfortable with things like that, than this, and all of Marvel MAX comics are clearly not for you. Other than that, there really isn't much else to say about this issue, I mean, it's pretty much just an explorati...

A Very Good Story With a Very Good Villain With Very Good Art 0

There is so much to like about this issue, the writing is very good and the villain they created was really interesting, leaving you with an understanding of his actions though extreme. The art is great thanks to the always fantastic Ariel Olivetti, on that note, panel arrangement is a very under appreciated art form. There is a lot you can do with it and even include the panel itself as part of the art, this issue has superb panel arrangement and it is very involved and interesting. This is...

Fantastic issue 0

This is another one of my favorite Man-Thing stories. One of the best things about it, and Man-Thing stories in general, is the narration aspect. The narration applied to the characters makes for really great story telling. When a drunk causes a bus to go off the road and crash into the Swamp, the characters have to work together to find a way to safety, this leads to conflicts and opens up character depth, al the while they are being watched by the Man-Thing who once again becomes the observer ...

Man Thing #6 0

This is one of my favorite issues of man-Thing. The art is classic, good 70's art, though there isn't much movement in the characters. The story is darkly compelling as you watch a clown who has killed himself act out every failure and misery in his life to try and appeal to three mystical critics on whether he gets to go to Heaven, Hell, or Purgatory. Part of the reason this issue is so good, is the fact that the clown uses Man-Thing to play his inner conscious, Tragg to play his childhood ...

Man-Thing #1 0

I really enjoyed this issue. It is written like a classic Man-Thing story but it is given brand new modifications, such as, it focuses a lot more on Man-Thing himself, and what's in his mind, whereas in the classic Man-Thing stories, it was more about the characters around him. The art is really good and almost seems to help tell the story, and the panel arrangement is done almost as artfully as Todd McFarlane. Overall this issue is a great throwback to classic Man-Thing stories, but at the...

Giant-Sized Daredevil #1 0

I didn't think this issue was that great. First of all it has some of the lamest villains in Marvel history in it, I mean, Stiltman? The writing is also fairly lacking, as it is pretty much just an average story with very little character depth, however, it is a significant issue because it is a special annual issue, so it might be worth getting just to add to your collection. The art is pretty good though, as movements are very fluid looking. In the end, this issue isn't very good but might...

Spawn #5 -Contains spoilers 0

This is one of the darkest issues of Spawn, it is also one of the best because of how descriptive and captivating it is (though this makes it a lot more dark). It opens right away with Billy Kincaid (a pedophile) being released from prison, through a loophole in the system, and at the same time showing what he did to his victims. This adds to the dark and grotesque feeling that is built up through the entire issue. The story reaches it's climax when Kincaid tries to kidnap Cyan (Wanda and Te...

Cartoon Network Presents: Space Ghost #1 0

I liked this comic, the art was fun to look at and the fight scenes were well done. This issue is also very significant because it features the return of Tansit (after he had been presumed dead after he was hurled into the death mists in the episode of the original Space Ghost cartoon: "Hi Jackers"). The writing isn't anything special though, all the characters are basic and two-dimensional, but if you just want an easy light read, this is pretty good....

Space Ghost 6-ish. Miniseries (2005) 0

I very much enjoyed this miniseries. Especially because it is the first time Space Ghost's origins have been told in the 30 plus years he has existed. Ariel Olivetti's art is very good, though I thought the story was pretty cliche, as it is is pretty much the exact same origin story as the Punisher's, where a man's family is murdered causing him to become a superhero and exact revenge on his family's killers. This time however, instead of Frank castle it's Thaddeus Bach who's wife and un...

Space Ghost #1(Comico) 0

I thoroughly enjoyed this one-shot written by Steve Rude and Mark Evanier.* Steve Rude's art is very good and ahead of it's time for the 80's as it comes across as being from the late 90's or early 2000's. Rude is a big Space Ghost fan so he stayed loyal to the characters and their motivations which I liked, though this could be the comic's downfall for the fact that Space Ghost's two sidekicks, Jan and Jayce are annoying and are overall crappy sidekicks for constantly getting captured which ca...
