Comic Reviews For 13 & 20 July, Plus Incoming


Comics of 20 July Casanova #2Fraction keeps to the page limit with this issue of Casanova, packing it full of action, funny dialogue and mad ideas. Ba’s art copes with it all with ease, drawing some sexy and cool art that serves the story. I’m not completely sold on it yet, but this definitely showed that the idea works in…

Solicitations, Inventory, And, Erm, Stuff


A lot to get through today, so let’s crack on and commentaritating (and making up words): Marvel solicitations for October As Marvel ploughs on with the massive Civil War crossover, there are only a few items worthy of merit that deserve mentioning, for whatever reason I see fit. Ultimate Power #1 Bendis starts off this bizarre crossover, with the Ultimate…

Inventory, Good News, A Great Film


Incoming Inventory – 13 July To make up for last week’s barren list, this week the publishers of the ninth art provide me with periodicals: 100 Bullets #74 I’ve been reading this for too long to switch to the trades now, so I look forward to my monthly hit of Bullets, as we head towards the last quarter. Fables #51…

Marvel Solicitations and Incoming Inventory


Marvel solicitations for September here. Like the DC soliciations, a selection rather than a long rundown: Ultimate Spider-Man #100 I don’t read Ultimate Spider-Man (although I did start out reading it), but you have to admit that it’s an impressive feat for the same creative team to continue for 100 issues straight in this day and age, especially on a…

Incoming Inventory and Bonus Links


Incoming Inventory 100 Bullets #73 I’m seeing this series through to the end, rumoured to be the appropriate issue 100, and enjoying it as it comes out. It probably reads better in the trades, but it’s too late for me to switch now. Ex Machina Special #2 Ex Machina was easily one of the best new series of last year,…

Comics on my shopping list (if I make it to the shop …)


Pulse-pounding Periodicals for Perusal! Supergirl and the Legion of Super Heroes #18I’m still intrigued by the ‘Supergirl thinking it’s all a dream’ concept, which has shook things up quite nicely. I still have faith in Waid, although it faltered a little in the middle of this run, so I hope I’m not piling on the expectations. PvP #26I still enjoy…

Bring Me The List of Clandestine Critic


The comics are still impossible to access due to the move, so blogging detours to another topoic where the research is provided online – this week’s list of my pulse-pounding purchase: Tag & Bink: Episode 1 Revenge of the Menace There can never be enough Star Wars comedy, in my opinion. I know it’s an easy target, but Rubio does…

Incoming…


(As I already give too much love to Ellis, cover of the week goes to Stan Sakai and his brilliant creation.) Comics filling my fiction fix for this week: Usagi Yojimbo #87Stan is creating another epic storyline, so not an issue for those wanting to pick up their first issue. Still wonderful stuff, though. Gotham Central #36One of the best…

Comics in my near and not-so-near future


Books I want this week: Strangehaven #18When was the last time this came out? Always a pleasure to see this appear on the New Comics List. Jack Cross #2I never watched 24, so the comparisons some have made mean nothing to me. Even if Erskine isn’t at his best, the first issue was taut stuff, so looking forward to more.…
