Comics Daily – 52 No. 24

Comics Daily – 52 No. 24 – The new Justice League. They seem more like the Great Lakes Avengers. Firestorm gathers together a rabble of misfit superheroes. They don’t know what they’re doing and people get hurt. Luthor’s Infinity Inc. swoops in and lends a hand. The whole thing is a ploy to get people…

Comics Daily – 53 No. 23

Comics Daily – 53 No. 23 – The Isis and Black Adam story is my favorite. I already know how it ends. It is easy to see but the execution is entertaining. It is a comic book story, but it isn’t that typical. The long search for Isis/Adrianna’s brother has come to an end. Montoya,…

Comics Daily – 52 No. 22

Comics Daily – 52 No. 22 – Considering this series came out once a week for a whole year, without being late once, it is impressive it too this long before the gimmick was felt. This issue feels a little bit like a breather. It isn’t filler. It isn’t a hole in the plot. It…

Comics Daily – 52 No. 21

Comics Daily – 52 No. 21 – Infinity Inc! I don’t know who they are, but it is a great name for superheroes. Apparently, Infinity Inc. was a team of superheroes who were the kids of the original Justice Society. This version of the team are Lex Luthor’s LexCorp made heroes. The name of which…

Comics Daily – 52 No. 20

Comics Daily – 52 No. 20 – The lost in space trio of this series don’t get enough story. This is a fun idea that deserves more pages to tell more story. Animal Man, Adam Strange, and Starfire land in a refuge for lost aliens. Kind of like Knowhere in Guardians of the Galaxy except…

Comics Daily – 52 No. 19

Comics Daily – 52 No. 19 – We have a plot twist! However it is at the end. At the beginning of the issue we have Booster Gold’s funeral. Except no one shows up. Clark Kent is there covering it for the paper, but no friends or fans show up. Even the pallbearers are paid…

Comics Daily – 52 No. 18

Comics Daily – 52 No. 18 – I don’t know anything about Doctor Fate, but I am a fan. I’ve never read Doctor Fate or Doctor Strange. Not significantly.

52_17

Comics Daily – 52 No. 17

Comics Daily – 52 No. 17 – I forgot about these guys. Animal Man, Starfire, and Adam Strange are on their own Lost in Space series. Again, 52 is more like an anthology of comic book stories than one arc. On their last adventure the space trio got their way into space after being stranded…

Comics Daily – 52 No. 15

Comics Daily – 52 No. 15 – I never knew Booster Gold was such an asshole. His plot in 52 hovers around him using information from the future to save the day and then capitalize on the publiciy to become a celebrity. It maybe shitty, but at least he is saving the day. That is…

dc-comics-52-issue-14

Comics Daily – 52 No. 14

Comics Daily – 52 No. 14 – 52 doesn’t feel like one comic book. It feels like at least four comic books taking place in its own pocket DC Universe. That kind of makes it Heroes Reborn, but good. Heroes Reborn was a Marvel imprint that separated Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Captain America, and Avengers…

Comics Daily – 52 No. 13

Comics Daily – 52 No. 13 – Todd Nauck is one of my favorite comic book artists. He was the main artist on one of my favorite DC books, Young Justice. He did some Spider-man work for Marvel. He has a dynamic superhero style. The action seems extraordinary, but not absurd. He is does every…

Comics Daily – Future Quest No. 1

Comics Daily – Future Quest No. 1 – This comic delivers. Jeff Parker immediately sets up an engaging universe for all of these Hana Barbera characters to exist in.

BlackWidow4

Comics Daily – Black Widow No. 4

Comics Daily – Black Widow No. 4 – I don’t know much about Black Widow. She is a dead zone in my Marvel Universe knowledge. I know she was introduced in an early issue of Iron Man. She has had relationships with Hawkeye and Daredevil. She had a grey jumpsuit kind of costume in the…

Comics Daily – All New All Different Avengers No. 11

Comics Daily – All New All Different Avengers No. 11 – I wonder if the soap opera aspect of comic books is diminished by writing for the trade style. In years past a series would go on and on and on for hundreds of issues. Stories would weave through each other. Plot points would drop…

Comics Daily – Darth Vader No. 22

Comics Daily – Darth Vader No. 22 – Darth Vader dies in the end. I mean at the end of this issue. Except he doesn’t because he ends up being around for Empire Strikes Back. So. Spoilers? All of the machinations that have been going on are coming to a point. And. I guess I’m…

Comic Daily – Green Lantern Rebirth No. 1

Comic Daily – Green Lantern Rebirth No. 1 – We get Atrocitus’ assessment of the Green Lanterns of Earth. More entertaining is the demarcation of before and after the Green Lanterns of Earth. As if through the entire history of the Green Lantern Corps pivoted, when humans started to wield the ring. I like that….

Comics Daily – Superman No. 52

Comics Daily – Superman No. 52 – This is the second time I’ve read a death of a Superman man story. I feel like the first one was better, but considering the emo-like state of character the New 52 Superman was characterized with, this was decent. It at least felt like a DC comic. Some…

Comics Daily – Captain America: Steve Rogers No. 2

Comics Daily – Captain America: Steve Rogers No. 2 – I don’t get it. Did people think they rectconned Captain America to have been a Hyrda agent all this time. Did they think they were going to fly in the face of 70 years of comics, three mega successful movies, cartoons, branding, and toys? Why…

THOR2015008_COV

Comics Daily – The Might Thor No. 8

Comics Daily – The Might Thor No. 8 – Jane Foster is Thor. Spoiler alert? Jane Foster is Thor, but when she isn’t she is dying of cancer. That is a pretty good hook. Right at the beginning of this issue is a week in the life of Thor. Using her godly powers to bring…

Comics Daily – Dark Knight: A True Batman Story

Comics Daily – Dark Knight: A True Batman Story – I’m mostly a Marvel Comics comic book fan. Not in any way that I believe they’re superior. Just that when I started getting into comics Marvel were the comics that caught my attention. They drew me into the world of heros, mutants, and cosmic beings….

Comics Daily – Vision No. 7

Pre-Heroes Reborn my knowledge of Avengers is pretty much just the big moments. They comes together to stop Loki. Cap shows up and Hulk leaves. Kree/Skrull War. Korvac. Avengers VS X-Men (the one with the Soviets not the one with Phoeinx). Avengers: West Coast was a thing. I know the moments, but not the details….

Comics Daily – Superman Lois and Clark No. 8

Comics Daily – Superman Lois and Clark No. 8 – There is a certain satisfaction this comic gives me. Almost a smugness. It isn’t earned. I’m not in comics. I’ve never sat down with a writer or editor and explained my take on plenty of heroes. However I have heard lots of people (not just…

Squadron-Supreme-8

Comics Daily – Squadron Supreme No. 8

Comics Daily – Squadron Supreme No. 8  – The Inhumans are in everything or at least it seems that way. Doctor Spectrum is an Inhuman or she gets her power from whatever energy The Inhumans use or something. I don’t know. I’m not sure if everyone at Marvel is suddenly psyched for these characters or…

Star_Wars_20

Comics Daily – Star Wars No. 20

Comics Daily – Star Wars No. 20 – There is some really great characterization going on here. We flash back to the time before Episode Four while Luke is about twelve years old. We don’t get any new information to the Luke myth, but we get some texture. Apparently, Uncle Own and Aunt Beru are…

Revival_40-1

Comics Daily – Revival No. 40

Comics Daily – Revival No. 40 – Whoa. This one really turns the corner. Hard. Things are going down. There is a lot of good in Revival. One of the better elements of this series has been the characterization of Dana’s son. Cooper feels like a real ten year old kid. A guy that just…

Comics Daily – Grayson No. 20

Comics Daily – Grayson No. 20 – Nope. No clue. I could not tell you what the whole point of this series has been. Even after reading twenty pages of it. The only thing I could tell you is because of trippy spy reasons now the whole has forgotten Dick Grayson is Nightwing. At the…
