Ciaranred's comicbook reviews Ciaranred's Pull list 4/08/2011
Hello Everyone. I have decided to do a pull list every thursday to show you what type of comics i read regularly as well as to give you an idea of like i am like and my opinions on comics when they come out so shall we begin
Herc Issue 6 Fear itself tie in. I must say Greg Paks has finally got this series back on track after 3, 4 and 5 really let me down alot. I mean i thought they were okay but i hadn,t been this let down Paks and Lente since the end of Choas War. This issue which sees the climax of Hercules battle with Hecate the Goddess of Terror spreading teerror through Brooklyn combined with the cult of War lead by Kyknosson of Ares who is determined to avenge his father by killing Hercules and reviving his father from the dead. This story thankfully has a great conclusion and has Herc reach new hieghts and reallhy amazes you with Herc and what he is capible of even without his powers and godhood. The supporting cast is interesting as well as a an end so far for Helene the daughter of Greek immegrant George Micheale and her relationship with him and Hercules. Overall i enjoyed this and as i have already said that i feel that it has gotten the series back up to Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente high standard of Writting
Adventure Comics issue 529 The last issue of the Adventure comics as well as Paul Levitz Legion of heroes academy. The Cadets must fight the comic king and by is it a hell of a fight and a suprising ending. Okay this was basically one huge battle comic with some pages devoted epilogue and plot development. So what did i think of this issue. Brilliant it is just one hell of a smack down between the Cadets and the Cosmic King. It is amazing fight not only showing the power and malice of a member of The legion of Villians but also showing the resolve of the cadets and why they are not only great teamates together but also true heroes in thier own right. Levitz keeps entertained and gives and interesting ending and set up for the future of the cadets in the Relaunch title of Legion of Superheroes in Septemeber which i intend to pick up. Art if Geraldo Borges is still consitant and enjoyible as tyhe rest of the issues he has done for the series.
Batman Arkham City Issue 4 Good issue I must say. Paul Dini continues to build up the mystery and threat olf Hugo Strange quite well as well as showing how much of a threat he is to Batman by easily cornoring Batman. Catwoman is introduced in this issue and i my say she is looking as hot as ever but also looks like she will be an enjyible character to play as in the game. The interaction between Batman and Catwoman is enjoyible and shows how much of a chemistry they share. Joker also appears and shows how much of a state he truely is in and how bad the Titan formula got to him. The art is good and i can,t wait for the last issue.
Dc universe Online Legends Issue 13. Dammit Wolfman, i am doing everythingi can do to like this series and you had me with earlier issues but now its getting hard to continue reading this man. I am intriged by the mind sets of Luthor and Brianiac since i feel this is more their story then anyone elses, but since the title has come to focus on Modern Day. Its been Lagging a lot. Hope ot does build up because an Insane superman should not be a chore to read. I mean the entire issue issue is Superman going on a rampage that has been manipulated by Brainiac and the heroes of the world combined with Lex Luther must stop him, sadly they don,t have much luck. While Lois Lane begins her own plans. Sadly i have already said it is hard to enjoy and i am sorry that this is the case since i love Marv Wolfman as a writer and hoped for better, i pray this series picks up soon or i may just drop it.
Overall this has been a good selection of titles with just one bad comicbook but ah i hope this has been a good insight into what i read as well as how i think and critique.
Anyway till next Time Nikki Nikki oh and please do leave comments and feedback
