Comic of the Week – First week of March 2016

Posted by on Mar 9, 2016 in Comic Books, Comics, Books and Such | 0 comments

This week my favorite book was Uncanny Avengers #6. Pretty good story. The Wrecker is released from prison and immediately attack Avengers Mansion, which apparently has been turned into a theme hotel??? Synapse is approached by Medusa to come to New Attilan for a tour and to meet her new “family”. Deadpool and Quicksilver are dispatched to stop the Wrecker while continuing to search for The Red Skull ad his daughter, Sinn. Written by Gerry Duggan, the story has some nice humor and decent action sequences with a twist ending, but the reason this gets my Book of the Week award is Carlos Pacheco’s artwork. While not every panel is great, they’re still pretty good and the good ones are great! Pacheco is one of my favorites and I’m glad to see he’s on this book...

Doctor Strange #55 (vol. 1)

Posted by on Sep 3, 2015 in Comic Books | 0 comments

Hey guys! I’m here to tell you a little about one of my favorite Doctor Strange issues, “To have loved, and lost”. Written by Roger Stern and drawn by Micheal Golden and Terry Austin, this was a sad issue but good in the fact that Stephen found some closure. The book starts off with Doctor Strange depressed and wanting to be left alone in his home, for the love of his life Clea had left him (not to be mean, mind you, she did it for Stephen’s good). Even though he is the master of the mystic arts, he is still human, and his human heart has been shattered. With so much pain he does the one thing he can think of, pull a Jimmy Stewart from Its a Wonderful Life and wish he were dead because it would be better than...

Spider-Man #17 (vol. 1)

Posted by on Sep 1, 2015 in Comic Books, Comics, Books and Such | 0 comments

Ahhh, a day in the life of Spider-Man. Sure he has had his run of bad luck over the years. There is always some lunatic trying to kill him, sometimes in a group of six. Some nights he’s pulling a ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ by changing into Peter Parker in time for a date with Mary Jane, while changing back into his Spider-Man attire because Major Kill or Doctor Hippo or whatever lames ass flavor of the week villain is robbing a bank for $600. I’ve read my fair share of Spider books but his one sticks out the most, written by Ann Nocenti, and drawn by Rick Leonardi, this one-shot took me by surprise, mainly because, he dies. Not figuratively, but literally. He died. What better way for a hero to die, than to do it in just that nature,...

Silver Surfer #41

Posted by on Aug 26, 2015 in Comic Books | 0 comments

The Silver Surfer was always one of my favorite characters growing up. Just the way he looked and the freedom (at the time anyway) he had of surfing through space was the coolest. His power cosmic seemed unmatched to any other heroes out there. I mean, he could beat Superman without even trying, and as a kid, that’s mind blowing! Silver Surfer #41 was written by Jim Starlin and penciled by Ron Lim, it was a fun issue and a great breath of fresh air from the standard superhero or cosmic story lines going on at that time. Starlins story is fine, but of course Ron Lims pencils can make anything look great.  I always thought that Norrin Radds downfall would have been at the hand of Mephisto or back handed by Thanos, not by losing his powers then going...
