Action Comics #1 REVIEW - They Made Superman Cool!

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Tuesday, September 27, 2011, In : ComIC reVieWs 

                They did it, they really did it… they made Superman cool. He didn’t even have to drape himself in black, replace his flesh with cybernetics and kill somebody. Some claim this “new” spin on Superman, brash and wise crackin’ is a return to the Golden Age of Comics (see here ). Street level hero is how Superman started after all, in the 1938 Action Comics #1.

                Beginning on the very first page he’s just an out-and-out cooler Supes than the previous lo...

The Reboot Everyone Should Be Talking About: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Friday, September 2, 2011, In : ComIC reVieWs 

            Amid the chatter of the latest DC reboot there was another oft-rebootin' franchise of characters that I was itching to talk about...

 

            IDW Publishing's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, and this time the cooler co-creator, Kevin Eastman, is behind the pen! I have a feeling that this is going to be the series hardcore fans were wanting when Laird resurrected the comic book stories a decade ago.

            The first hurdle to get over, of course, is...

Batman and Robin #17 REVIEW

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Saturday, December 11, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 



Grant Morrison's reign over Dick Grayson's life is over. While Morrison states he will miss writing or "hanging out" (as he puts it) with the characters Grayson and his own creation, Damian Wayne, I have to wonder why he ended his run on their series with Bruce Wayne making the save, when it is their book??

Regardless, Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell is now scribe before Tomasi takes over next year.

It is interesting that DC chose Scott McDaniel as artist, being as he illustrated the first fort...

rEviEW: GUARDING THE GLOBE #1

Posted by C.F. Arnold on Sunday, September 5, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 
           


            First off I just have to comment on the title...it's genius. It's really one of those less is more things and to me, helps continue to set Image apart from "the big two." I'm hard pressed to think of another team book that plays on the name of the team for the title, but doesn't actually call the title the name of the team.

            Who needs IMAGE UNITED when you have GUARDING THE GLOBE? Kirkman has essentially created an entire super hero universe and honestly, it...

rEviEw: SHADOWLAND #1 (of 5) *spoilers*

Posted by BIG TeTe on Friday, July 16, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 




               If you haven't been reading Andy Diggle's (THE LOSERS) first six month on Daredevil what you've missed is Matt Murdock's decision to become the leader of The Hand in an attempt to use the evil organization as a resource to protect his beloved Hell's Kitchen. Little does Murdock know that a plan has been set in motion using him as an unwilling pawn of "Snakeroot," an ancient trio within The Hand that has predetermined his descent into darkness. Apparently at the end of Daredev...

Review: KNUCKLEHEADS #1

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Monday, June 28, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 

  

 



            A buddy of mine from Oklahoma (where the fine creators of KNUCKLEHEADS hail from) sent me this book about a month ago and I have been meaning to review it ever since my first read-thru. I have been behind in updating the site for content lately, but I think an independent title about a gamer/slacker who gains superpowers from a mysterious alien crystal that has become grafted to his hand, is the perfect way to get back into the swing of things.

The comic is admittedly ...

REVIEW: Booster Gold #32 - BRU-HA-HA *spoilers*

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Wednesday, May 19, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 



A new creative team always makes me weary, especially when I thoroughly enjoyed the previous team. I also find it unsettling when the creator of a character is replaced on his own book by a team credited as bringing back the “Bru-Ha-Ha.” I loved JLI, but was weary of the Giffen/Dematteis reunion with Booster Gold because of the amount of development that has gone into the character since 52. So needless to say I was skeptical going into this issue. Possibly, my weariness made this iss...

FCBD - Quick Tick Review

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 






            Boring.. is not the word for this book. It’s been twenty four years since TICK #1 first hit the comic book stands and it still isn’t boring. How much sweeter of an origin can you have? A guy busts out of a mental hospital because he is bored and claims to be a tick themed super hero. Genius!

To me, the jokes still hold up and the art is beautiful. There is something to be said about good black and white art in an indie book. It fits the tone perfectly.

Tick is essent...

REVIEW: Batman and Robin #12 - "They're all jokes..." *spoilers*

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Friday, May 7, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 

  

                For years us Wing-nuts have been begging for an epic Dick Grayson arc. Wolfman failed to deliver and Tomasi was cut short during their respective NIGHTWING runs. Grant Morrison, however, has delivered in the twelfth issue of BATMAN & ROBIN, entitled Batman vs. Robin(part 3).

                The story picks up exactly where it left off last time, with the revelation that Deathstroke the Terminator is controlling Damian Wayne’s every move (at the direction Damian’s mot...

Review: Transformers #4 *Spoilers*

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Friday, April 16, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 
          

IDW continues to enrich their tightly knit Transformers universe with issue number four of their TRANSFORMERS on-going series. I realize it has taken me up until the release of issue five, essentially thirty days, to post this review but hey, what can I say? I have a large pull list of stuff to read week to week.

This series has been a the perfect jumping on point into the IDW-verse for any T-formers fan interested in reading a monthly stories of their favorite robots in disguis...

Nightwing is the Centre of the (DC) Universe

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Wednesday, March 24, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 
                                                      

                With March 20 being highly regarded as the in-story birth of Dick Grayson I thought it would be appropriate to explain why he is one of the most important characters in comicdom. Perhaps it would have been more appropriate to use “Dick Grayson” in the title of this entry; however he is undeniably the most prominent character in the Nightwing role, so nuff said. Why would I make such a claim as this?  Well… because ...

Adventure Comics #7 Review *Spoilers* "There's technically TWO Conner Kents on Earth"

Posted by C.F. Arnold on Monday, February 15, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 
                                                              

    In January Adventure Comics #6, written by Geoff Johns with art and covers by Francis Manapul, was probably one of the best, if not the best, comics released the first month of 2010 (I guess making it holder of the "best comic of the year" title for a hot minute..but too soon to go there). Needless to say Adventure Comics #7 had a lot to live up to. Not to mention this issue is written by the man DC recently announced would fi...

Green Lantern #50 Review *spoilers*

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Sunday, February 7, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 
                                           

    The first page kicks off with a massive influx of black lanterns decimating Coast City. We flip the page to see a beautiful Doug Mahnke splash of the various lantern corps leaders and their appointed avatars from the previous Blackest Night issue. Throughout this series I have enjoyed how the Green Lantern title is a companion to the main mini-series, emphatically. The title consistently nourishes my appetite for more Blackest Night on a month t...

Batman and Robin #7 Review *Spoilers*

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Thursday, February 4, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 

                                                    

 

This book was a nice little set-up issue for the rest of the story arc. We basically have these bookends on the plot, where the book starts with Grayson carrying the body of Bruce Wayne from below the bat cave and the book ends with where he took the corpse and why he took it there. The opening scene alone sort of furthers the confusion over whose skull Black Hand carried around and temporarily re-animated in the Blackest Night mini? T...

Atom and Hawkman #46 Review

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Sunday, January 31, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 
                                          

    This Blackest Night crossover comic marks the seventh issue in the rise of the dead comics series (for lack of a better term). DC did a great job with these books and to my knowledge this was the first time a single issue of a long cancelled series has been released to both continue the series, in a sense, in addition to taking place in the universe spanning (or should I say multiverse spaning). Cool concept that resulted in a lot of cool stories...

SIEGE #1 Review *Spoilers*

Posted by C.F. Arnold III on Friday, January 15, 2010, In : ComIC reVieWs 
                                                  

    This one just wasn't for me. What was I thinking buying this issue? I haven't enjoyed a single Marvel event in the past eight years that was written by Brian Bendis, and SIEGE #1 is a book written by Brian Bendis that has been "eight years in the making." He's obviously a talented writer, but I can't get into his event books... I should have known better.

    The book begins with Osborn and Loki's plan to taint the good name of Asgard, whic...
