A robot hero, real American heroes, an anti-hero and two heroes merged into one… these are the subjects of this collection of capsule reviews. This time around, I review Aphrodite V #3, G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero #1, Harley Quinn #50 and Infinity Wars: Soldier Supreme #1.
From off-world reconnaissance to a blend of espionage and ink, from newly made galaxies to a vision of Victorian era England with hand-made monsters, this collection of capsule reviews will take you to unusual worlds to encounter impossible people. Join me as I delve into the most recent issues of Cemetery Beach, Cover, Fantastic Four and Newbury & Hobbes: The Undying.
With this batch of capsule reviews, I visit with a wide array of colorful characters: from social-media czars to visitors from space, from survivors of an apocalypse to pioneers of the craft and commerce of comics. See what I have to say about Lex Luthor/Porky Pig, Venom: First Host, The Walking Dead and War Bears.
Come with me as I explore elsewheres and elsewhens, worlds unlike our own populated by fantastic characters and unbelievable customs. From kickstarting a killing to pulling a heist in a galaxy far, far away. From punked-out heroes to robots with free will trying to earn a living. Continue and find out what I thought of this quartet of first issues: Crowded, Edge of Spider-Geddon, Star Wars: Beckett and Volition.
In Metropolis, criminals try to stay hidden from an all-seeing, all-hearing hero, while at the bottom of the ocean, a reanimated but foggy assassin undertakes a recovery mission that will haunt him. In New York, champions of justice gather with thieves and killers to discuss the fate of the universe, and in a different version of New York, comrades in arms gather for a reunion that turns into a rescue mission. I examine them all in this latest collection of capsule reviews.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted some shorter reviews, so it’s time to get back to it. This time around, I share some thoughts on a new Cyanide & Happiness collection, the latest issues of Infidel and Iron Man, and a benefit book aimed at helping the still-suffering people of hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.
