Skyman #2 Review

skyman #2

 Still trying to overcome his fear of flying after a plane crash that nearly killed him, Sgt. Eric Reid doesn’t have time for PTSD as the new Skyman! The superhero’s life isn’t made any easier by the confrontations with his handler and the shocking number of bugs plaguing his suit. And matters are made even worse as he discovers someone’s trying to sabotage the suit and smear his good name!

 

The Good

Cover- A simply gorgeous and striking image on the stands, as a Arabian inspire architecture of Cairo burns below Skyman and his striking Blue and White costume, with civilian in hand soars to the sky. I love it!

Art-Manuel Garcia’s art is better than last issue; it’s not as jagged or rough. Compared to DC and Marvel’s art it lacks certain smoothness but the inks and colors really do give it a unique look.

Story- Reid remembers a few years back when he was a pilot. In the present he saves a ship before taking a tour of Cairo. As he tours lieutenant Sharp dons the Skyman costume and completes’ a secret mission. Reid witnesses him flying away from as he rescues children from the burning building. Reid confronts Sharp and takes the Skyman costume

Action- The daring rescue by Reid and the ensuing explosion were darn well rendered. The later fight between the Reid and

Things to come- So after recruiting Reid to the Skyman program for “affirmative action” the program has then gone on doing assassinations. This is the type of “government conspiracy” that you can get quite a bit of mileage out of. Reid stealing the suit and going off on his own opens up even more possibilities.

Black Hero- The new Skyman is here and if the cover is to be believed he’s the titular star. Also worth noting is Reid being the second character of color to use crutches and have a back injury. The other being Silhouette.

 

 

The Bad

Art- While I do like the art when I asked my wife at a casual glance she thought it looked unfinished. It lacks a certain smoothness which would greatly enhance the overall package.

Cliché- yet another government conspiracy, have we not had enough of these already?

 

The Ugly

Skyman is well written and well illustrated providing a interesting story and protagonist. We give this issue a 3/5 Stars.

stars- 3 good

 


Savage Dragon #194 Review

Savage Dragon #194

Savage Dragon #194

  SAVAGE DRAGON: THE NEXT GENERATION! Malcolm Dragon has big shoes to fill. His father saved the world on a few occasions and kept Chicago’s notorious criminal organization the Vicious Circle at bay for decades — can the younger Dragon hope to live up to the legacy of his famous father? Not if the new nemesis Torment has anything to say about it! With a benevolent voice in one ear and a sadistic one in the other, he may just be the most conflicted killer of them all, and Malcolm Dragon is the only one standing in the path of this fearsome new foe!

 

The Good

Art-Erik Larsen outdoes himself this issue channeling classic Kirby in each and every panel. Ive heard a great many things about Larsen’s art, both good and bad. This issue is very good on every level. The choreography was tight, the details were present and he manages to both have a smooth finish while preserving some of his trademarked edge. I love it!

Life of a celebrity- Larsen creates a pretty interesting situation to Malcolm this issue with the groupies. It’s a testament to his more wholesome personality that he turned down the sexual favors on offer.

Humor- It was particularly hilarious how his friend went on and on about the Beyonce booty on offer. Good stuff Erik!

Story- A young Malcolm witnesses his “mother” get killed by a monster during a crisis. He is quickly whisked away by Mighty Man who reveals his mother is not dead and they have an emotional reunion. That Night, Malcolm overhears the truth that neither woman is his mother but instead other dimensional counterparts. In the present he battles Torment. At first the villain eludes him and he returns to his apartment where some groupies follow him back into action. Tremor attacks again and the women are killed angering Malcolm who thrashes the villain then flash fries him with his electric powers.

Black Hero- If you don’t know yet you need to get into Malcolm Dragon! One of the freshest superheroes out from Image comics right now!

Cover- I glossed over it last issue but the new logo for this book has a letter man jacket kind of feel presumably because Malcolm is in High School. It’s simple but has allot of underlying meaning. The cover also harkens back to a time when covers actually had something to do with the story inside. This is vintage 90′s and I’m digging it to the core.

Action- It’s been awhile since I read a comic where there was an all out knock down drag out fight like this one. I loved it! Every destructive and well rendered blow! This is the stuff the 90’s were made off and Larsen gives it to us like it’s 1992. I freaking love it! All you action junkies out there you need to get into Savage Dragon right now.

 

The Bad

Throwback feel- The 90′s feel may put some off.

Art- Erik Larsen’s art is an acquired taste allot like Rob Liefeld and Todd Mcralane, if your not a fan stay away.

Background- Honestly to truly understand the flashback you would have to be a Savage Dragon veteran a wiki can only put so much into context unless you actually read the tale. This is disappointing since it would have nice to have this new lease on Savage Dragon be accompanied by a fully accessible tale to new readers.

 

 

The Ugly

Overall I enjoyed the whole issue. Great art, cover, story with a knock down drag out battle straight from the 90′s! Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon the next generation rocks! 3.5/5 Stars

stars- 3.5


Mighty Avengers (2013) #9 Review

 

Mightyavengers2013 #9

 

 The Blue Marvel faces a nightmare from the depths of the Neutral Zone – and the depths of his past!

Meanwhile, Ronin can’t hide from the Deathwalkers any longer……or from the readers!

This ish – the mask comes off!

 

The Good

Art- Greg land has taken time off the last few issues to clearly put together this gorgeous issue. There are a few hiccups but for the most part this is a good looking book (Yeah I said that about Greg Land’s art).

Story- Ronin talks with Kaluu in his safe house before being attacked by Ninja Were-snakes. In the battle the safe house explodes. Elsewhere the unstable Kevin Brashear puts the whole world in danger. Blue Marvel is unable to do anything about the situation

Black Heroes- Blade is revealed as Ronin (gasp), Blue Marvel makes an appearance and Monica Rambeau continues to be used to great effect!

Action- Rampaging She Hulk enhanced by Monica Rambea vs Out of control Kevin Brashear was pretty damn cool!

Cover- This issue’s cover touts “Ronin Revealed”, it has the new Ronin taking off his mask in front of shocked Monica Rambeau, Falcon, Power Man and Ava Ayala.

Tragedy- This issue makes Blue Marvel move up a couple places on my favorite Black Superheroes list. Like Monet St. Croix before him Blue Marvel has powers that should seemingly make him another Superman clone which is the equivalent of being neigh omnipotent and boring to boot. Instead of dear stale Clarke however Blue Marvel is humanized by the tragedies in his life like Monet. His failure as a father, his retreat from public life as a superhero, his failure to save his wife, all these things makes him a very emotionally resonant character. His strained relationship with Max Brashear, Max’s rebellion against a father who couldn’t save his mother or brother, the loss of his favorite son in Kevin and then the nail in the coffin Kevin’s unstable arrival and having him lost again. When Adam Brashear shed’s a tear this issue I want to shed one right alongside him.

Team- The escape of Monica Rambeau and She Hulk was awe inspiring stuff! I would never have thought of it but it makes perfect sense in retrospect.

 

 

The Bad

The reveal- This could have been an issue to create waves and set the internet on fire the same way Bendis reveal of Echo as the original Ronin instead this was spoiled so long ago I can’t help but wish it was someone else under the mask just to get a touch of shock or excitement.

 

 

The Ugly

Mighty Avengers #9 is an emotional, action packed, deliciously rendered tale, we give it 4.5/5 stars

stars- 4.5


Iron Patriot #1 Review

Iron Patriot 01 (1)

This March, peel back the layers of Colonel James Rhodes in IRON PATRIOT #1 – the all-new series from critically acclaimed writer Ales Kot and fan-favorite artist Garry Brown! Who is the man in the armor? What drives him? James Rhodes may have quit the Secret Avengers, but that’s not going to stop him from bringing the fight to the bad guys from inside the Iron Patriot armor! But his heroism will come with a steep price…

 

The Good

Family- I enjoyed the moments between James, his father and his niece.

Black Hero- James Rhodes is back in the saddle but this time as the Iron Patriot.

New Mission- James is no longer on kill missions but is now a symbol of American peace. That’s cool I guess.

Opening- The best part of the entire issue was the foreshadowing that James Rhodes will have a close to death situation involving an enemy in a power suit. It set a dark and somber mood in the first few pages.

 

 

The Bad

Cover- Not feeling it on any level, if my supplier hadn’t suggested I try this book the cover alone would have sent me to the hills and away from this issue.

Art- Biggest problem has to be how young James Rhodes appeared throughout the issue. I don’t get this recent trend at marvel. First it was New Warriors 2014 and now Iron Patriot.

Boring- While the opening was great everything else was just plain dull and lifeless on every possible level.

 

The Ugly

I was eager to read this issue since its release had received no fan fare whatsoever and I was curious why. Having read the entire thing I must say it’s terribly dull on every possible level. Will I stick around? Hard to tell at this point, if things don’t pick up in the next four or five issues and in a major way I won’t be sticking around. This issue gets 2/5 stars

stars- 2


Batwing #30 Review

Batwing#30

 Batwing races Menace to attempt to save his family! But the Gotham Underground is about to boil over with anarchy, and no matter which tribe rises up from below Gotham City, Batwing will be the first target!

 

The Good

Art- It’s been well established already that Eduardo Pansica’s art is consistent, sharp, clean yet detailed and well suited to the high octane action.

Story- Luke escapes from the subterranean fish monster. He rescues a man from the “speaker heads”. After bartering his way into a disguise he is lead into an ambush under the pretense that he’s getting info on his sister’s location. He manages to capture the leader of the Anubis gang “Mother of Anubis”. Before he can escape he runs straight into Menace. Back in Gotham Lucius is losing his mind with Luke and Tiff missing and Tamara now comatose. Batman however can’t find Luke because of the cloaking technology present in the subterranean underworld.

Action- Batwing vs. subterranean fish monster? Check! Batwing vs. the Anubis gang? Check! There was also a brief skirmish between some prisoners and the Speaker heads. As usual Batwing manages to have a great balance of story and action. Eduardo Pansica’s art continues to do an excellent job of rendering the action.

Culture- I’m still fascinated by everything about this underground world has going on. None of it is terribly original but the way everything fits together is interesting; Slavery, rival gangs, microcosms etc.

Black Hero- Luke Fox is still alive and literally kicking this issue (thankfully). The battle raging inside Luke continues though, the anger over what happened to his sister is very close to the surface yet he does need his brain and wits to stay alive in this city. Lucius is the panicking father and given his current situation is entirely understandable. Tiff, baby of the Fox clan is a fiery as always but understandably freaking out about the situation in which she currently finds herself.

Villains- Menace finally comes face to face with Batwing and I would kill to learn more about Mother of Anubis.

 

The Bad

Cover- While it’s not a bad illustration the departure from the typical stylized covers we’ve seen thus far is a bit jarring.

 

The Ugly

Overall this was an enjoyable read with good art, characterization and action though it lacked the emotional resonance of the last few issue. We give this one 3/5 stars!

stars- 3 good


Fantastic Four #544 Review

FantasticFour#544 cover

In the aftermath of Civil War comes RECONSTRUCTION, the beginning of a stunning new era of fantastic adventure. The team has been rocked to its foundations by the controversial events of the last several months. Now Reed and Sue have announced their plans to take some time off to work out their marital problems, leaving Ben and Johnny to hold the fort. But they won’t be doing it shorthanded. Two new members join the team, Black Panther and Storm. Epoch says that the events that occurred are beyond their comprehension. The Fantastic Four make to land on her but she begs them to leave. She says their energies she’s releasing are detectible and she fears being discovered by the Herald. With that, the Silver Surfer arrives.

Summary

The Black Panther and Storm join the Fantastic Four and renovate the Baxter building to be more like home.  After a press conference they meet with Deathlok who has them investigate the mystery of Gravity’s missing body. They manage to visit the Watcher and get the information they need.

Tracking Epoch the living planet they discover she has Gravity’s body and she refuses to hand it over. A fight ensues and the Silver Surfer arrives.

The Good

Mystery- Who the hell is gravity and why is his body missing?FantasticFour#544 1

Cover-We have the ever loving blue eyed thing in the foreground, followed by the human torch with our favorite married couple Storm the mutant weather goddess and Black Panther the most dangerous man alive.

Believable- McDuffie manages to put Storm and Black Panther on the Fantastic Four and even have the costumes changed to match Black Panther’s black motif in a very natural and convincing manner. He also makes a point of having Storm reconcile her normally volatile relationship with the press by having her acknowledge that as queen she must now comport herself like a queen as she no longer has the benefit of being a mutant outlaw.

Future Portents- This issue references the watcher attending the wedding of Black Panther and Storm back in Black Panther (2005) # and also makes reference to the children they will have…….now by my calculation that would mean Sky Panther, Azari from the cartoon Avengers Next, Panther who joined the exiles, The children from the “dune like” future T’chaka who marries Luke Cage’s daughter Danielle, Twari, the unnamed son, the twins…..yeah that’s all I’m aware of so far. But me thinks there must be quite a few more that should eventually pop up!

FantasticFour#544 2Humor- Quite a few chuckle worthy moments in this one, my favorite had to be where Black Panther went into his exposition about the watcher and Storm nips it in the bud. Pity Reggie Hudlin didn’t take note that this was the proper way to write a marriage.

Black Heroes- Ladies and gentlemen I give you Storm and Black Panther the mightiest coupling in the marvel universe under a scribe whose execution is damn near perfect! Oh and Deathlok shows up too!

Art- Paul Pelletier’s art is a visual feast. Everything has a good balance of details, smoothness and cartoon aesthetic.  Storm in particular is beautiful, with full luscious lips, charming eyes and well defined African nose.  The art also manages to give all the characters even the rock like Thing very expressive facial features.

Team- McDuffie manages to lay all the personalities at his disposal very well. Storm is warm, comforting and friendly with Ben and Johnny yet very loving though not submissive to Black Panther.  Storm steals the ultimate nullifier off panel thanks to her thieving skills, Johnny is the typical hothead mess and Ben shows that he’s not the dumbest member of the team by piloting the new ship easily and also grabbing the information the tea needed from the Cycloedia Universum (the Watchers Wikipedia) while everyone else was overwhelmed. This is simply bloody good writing!

The Bad

Action- This issue is very light on the fisticuffs, which will surely prevent a great many from digging into this feast.

Thief- This was an aspect of Storm’s characterization and continuity that Hudlin all but ignored. I would have gotten a kick out of seeing how Storm got the nullifier but that probably just me.

The Ugly

Dwayne McDuffie RIP this is by far one of the most enjoyable tales that feature the Black Panther & Storm. It shows them taking over the spot of Invisible woman and Mr. Fantastic with great ease while adding their own unique flair. Overall I must say this issue is a solid 4/5

stars- 4


New Warriors (2014) #2-3 Review

 

Newarriors2014#2

New Warriors (2014) #2

The Evolutionaries are on the war path! If it’s not human, it DIES.

What does the High Evolutionary want with Nova?

All across the world, the New Warriors come together… SEE! Sun Girl and Haechi deal with Morlocks! WITNESS! Justice and Speedball fight to save magic! CRINGE! As Scarlet Spider refuses to play well with others.

What I thought

Honestly this issue was head and shoulders better than the first for me. The action was good and while I can’t accept Kain as the Scarlet Spider or the book’s lack of Night Thrasher I can see the threads being woven together. The unified outlook that Kyle has planned is an interesting take on the Marvel Universe, quite similar to New Warriors Volume one from the 90’s. The team has potential: Clone, Demigod, Atlantean, Inhuman, Human tech user (Sun Girl) and Superhuman. All the bases are covered and the threat provided seems big enough to warrant a team made of these seemingly disparate groups joining together.

Another complaint is the lack of seeming maturity among the original New Warriors Vance Astrovic and Speedball. I thought it was a nice touch having Speedball mention Firestar who had a long running relationship with Vance and also joined the Avengers with him. She’s clearly not going to be joining this team since she just joined the Amazing X-men.

I also liked the use of the High Evolutionary as the ‘big bad’ of this opening arc. He really does need to get more usage with his range of skills and abilities.

Overall

I give this issue a 3/5 for good cast, art and a step in the right direction.

stars- 3 good

 

 

New Warriors (2014) #3 Review

New Warriors (2014) #3 Review

THE KIDS ARE ALL FIGHT!

The all-new NOVA has tea with the High Evolutionary as a world-wide genocide approaches.

Why does the High Evolutionary want to kill anything that’s not human? Is he a hero or villain? The answers are here!

PLUS! As the New Warriors gather in New York, a captured SCARLET SPIDER meets Nova, and one of them REALLY annoys the other. Guess.

What I thought

Art was good and I’m enjoying the story development. Team dynamics are starting to come into play. The New Nova and Scarlet Spider are two very different people who get on each other’s nerves instinctively. There is enough tension between Justice and Sun Girl for that to lead into a romance in the future or for her to be co-leader; of both. I enjoyed how Yost tied together all the different races into the grand scheme of the celestials in the first few pages. I could nitpick, the hell out of it but I’m going along with it because I’m curious to see where this goes. It’s also quite effective in introducing new readers to the marvel universe in general. That level of accessibility is priceless in this often convoluted and back story heavy realm of comics, kudos to Yost on that one. The art is pretty good though the cover is pretty damn bland. Still waiting for Night Thrasher to show up but seems like a moot point now.

Overall

I’m enjoying this which is a major step up for issue number one. I give this issue a 3/5

stars- 3 good

Cataclysm: Ultimate Comics Spider-man #2 Review

The young heroes of the ULTIMATE UNIVERSE gather together to save New York from the terror of GALACTUS!!!

War time romance blooms!

A NEW hero debuts!

Story- A flashback to two years ago when New York was flooded by Magneto and his brotherhood, we find out what Dagger was up to at the time. In the present Cloak and Dagger teleport right onto Galctus’s face and start attacking. They realize they are way out of their league and instead turn their attention to evacuating the city.

Cover-This one has an all white cover with a cut out in the shape of Galactus head showing Miles Morales, Cloak and Dagger primed and ready for the attack.

Cataclysm: Ultimate Comics Spider-man #3 Review

Cataclysm: Ultimate Comics Spider-man #3 Review

The question everyone has been asking: Will Miles Morales survive CATACLYSM???

Story- With Galactus in the center of New York all hell breaks loose. Miles dad has an emotional outburst upon realizing his son is Spider-man. Before they can hash things out a plane crashes on their street. Miles helps the survivors and tells his dad to remain in the apartment until he returns. Once he swings off his father breaks down and cries. At the crash site Spider-woman, Cloak, Dagger and Bombshell show up to aid things. J Jonah Jameson is also rescued. Miles returns to his house to find his father gone. Before he can process what has happened the Ultimates contact him for aid.

 

Overall

This series  had gorgeous art from start to finish. Stunning Splash pages and characterization popping off every single page. The most powerful scenes from issue #1 were Bombshells memory as a child criminal with her mom and Dagger’s realization that her parents had just packed up and left her behind. In issue #2 the ending was the best part as Miles stands without his mask in-front of his father. The finale issue had allot of powerful moments. The confrontation between father and son and the shocked realization his dad experiences pulls at your heart springs in a way only if you’ve been here from Ultimate Comics Spider-man #1 you will truly get it. Other notable happenings was J Jonah Jameson trying to talk to Miles and then saying “When this is all over I’m going to change your life”. It’s spine tingling and tear jerking when you realize Jameson after Peter Parker died regretted everything he put Parker through. It’s the same reason he refused to disclose the Miles identity back when Venom came onto the scene (See Ultimate Comics Spider-man #16.1, Ultimate Comics Spider-man #19, Ultimate Comics Spider-man #20Ultimate Comics Spider-man #21 and eventually killed his mom (Ultimate Comics Spider-man #22).

This series manages to ease us into the Cataclysm crossover without being jarring or feeling as forced as the tragic and average United we Stand (Which ran through Ultimate Comics Spider-man #15, #16-18) which happened earlier in this run. Brian Michael Bendis delivers simply divine Characterization wrapped in great art and deep-seated emotion. I give the entire thing a 5/5

stars- 5 excellent


Batwing #29 Review

Batwing#29 1

 Gotham City has been invaded by an army of criminals sent from the Gotham Underground!

Batwing must defend his home and live through his first meeting with his most dangerous foe yet: Menace!

 

The Good

Cover- This month continues the Batwing trend of a cover predominantly of blue hues. Batwing and his costume are almost completely black except for his bring blue glowing insignia. It’s simple yet effective and really sticks out on the comic stands.

Art-Eduardo Pansicca is still on art and it appears to be one of his best illustrated issues yet.

Emotion- Luke is a man out f control and out for vengeance. His life, this life he has longed for has finally resulted in tragedy. He thought he was in for a life of high-flying action, instead his sister is now brain-dead, his other sister missing and his family irrevocably emotionally shattered. Batwing#29 2The panels in which look sheds a single tear as he watches his parent’s emotional upheaval were excellently done. It was a tear jerking moment which leads straight into Luke roughing up the thug by breaking his arm and literally using too much force. It all flowed and made the book that much more enjoyable, kudos to all involved.

Action- Luke faces off with the Anubis gang before being attacked by a mutated fish creature at the end. How the hell do Palmiotti and Gray squeeze so much into every issue without making it feel rushed is truly astonishing.

Gotham Underground- I find this new playground fascinating. It literally adds depth to Gotham and opens up endless possibilities for storytelling.

Consequences The opening scenes which has Alfred and Batman lamenting Luke’s downward spiral and the tragedy which always comes with being a part of the Bat family was on point. I immediately thought of the death of Dick Grayson’s family, the death of Jason Todd, the death of Tim Drake’s father, the crippling of Barber Gordon etc. There is a great deal of danger which comes with being a crime fighter in Gotham. It’s one of the reasons why David Zavimbe was such an excellent choice; he had already lost so much. Alfred points out that if anything happens to Luke’s sisters Bruce will bear the brunt of the blame because he pulled Luke into this lifestyle.

Black Hero- Batwing/ Luke Fox is here, His father Lucius also makes an appearance as does Tamara and his mom.

 

 

The Bad

No complaints

 

 

The Ugly

I’m sick and tired of telling you each and every month to buy this book. Batwing #29 is an exciting, emotional, beautifully characterized and rendered gem. BUY IT! 5/5

stars- 5 excellent


New Avengers (2013) #15 Review

newavengers2013#15 1

 Just who, or what is the Black Swan? Black Panther and the Illuminati make a shocking discovery about their mysterious ally! All this and…..everything dies! 

 

The Good

Cover-A painting-esque rendition showing Black Swan in the foreground while statues of the Illuminati surround her in the background.

Art- Simone Bianchi’s art is pitch perfect this issue with, I have no complaints. Complimenting the line work of Bianchi are some bold and dynamic colors courtesy of Adriano Dall’alpi. Good stuff!

Action- Not a whole lot but dismemberment and disintegration are used to break up the rather exposition heavy plot.

Reveal- Clearly we expected the Black Priests to be kill-able but the casual nature by which the Black Swans do it was rather anticlimactic. Nonetheless it was good to know they are not the threat they originally seemed to be.

Story- The Illuminati use their devices to check the background of their “ally” Black Swan. They discover she will betray them and has seemingly more power than they realize. Later they jail her once more hoping to prevent the dismal future they watched from ever happening.

Black Hero- Black Panther the King of the Dead/Most dangerous man alive is present and accounted for.

The Bad

The Reveal-So the big reveal is that the Black Swan is not an ally? Really? Did the readers or the Illuminati trust this chick when in her debut issue she betrays her allies and has them all slaughtered (See New Avengers (2013) #1 for details?

Fight- Am I the only one who would have loved to actually see the Illuminati vs. the Black Swan? No? I didn’t think so! I would have paid good money and enjoyed it allot more than I did this issue if I witnessed a good old fashioned knock down drag out fight.

Somber- It’s becoming a bit overbearing that everything is doom and gloom always with this title. You can only see so much dismemberment and death before it really loses its ‘sting’.

Exposition- At some point it just gets too much, this book is heavy on the exposition

 

 

The Ugly

New Avengers #15 was surprisingly average and dull. We have great art sure but the “big reveal” lacked any kind of punch. This issue gets a 2.5/5

stars- 2.5
