Quick Thought Reviews 11/24/10
Published on Sunday, November 28, 2010 by

Sometimes there isn’t a reason to do a full review on a particular issue, but still have a comment to make on it. For that we have Quick Thoughts.

Secret Avengers #7
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Ed Brubaker
Penciled by: Mike Deodato Jr.

Just realized this issue didn’t have a credits page. Also, great use of Ant-Man as a “stowaway” and nice to see O’Grady using the full abilities of the Pym Particles.

Green Arrow #6
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: J.T. Krul
Penciled by: Diogenes Neves

Neves art is getting real bad. His poses are awkward. Story really doesn’t make much sense.

Skull Kickers #3
Published by: Image Comics
Written by: Jim Zubkavich
Art by: Edwin Huang

Still waiting for the funny to hit.

Teen Titans #89
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: J.T. Krul
Penciled by: Nicola Scott

Krul’s Robin is out of character. No way Robin messes up this bad in the Bat-titles. But Scott does do a good job showing his age and size difference from the others.

Secret Warriors #22
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jonathan Hickman
Art by: Alessandro Vitti

Hickman having to pick up the pace to take 60 issues worth of ideas into 30 issues has really been felt in this storyline. Can feel the compacted nature of it. Nice way Fury deals with a traitor.

Justice Society of America #45
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Marc Guggenheim
Art by: Scott Kolins

Slightly better then Guggenheim’s debut issue. Kolins art still isn’t that good.

Action Comics #895
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Paul Cornell
Art by: Pete Woods

Good job of retconning and fitting it into existing moments of DC history. When retconning has to happen, this is how it should be done.

Captain America #612
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Ed Brubaker
Penciled by: Butch Guice

Not much going on in this issue as alot of it is Bucky spent contemplating his future behind bars. It’ll be interesting seeing how this all ends up. Nice bit of Cap history with the reappearance of Bernie Rosenthal. Nice to see a super hero needing a lawyer and not have the obligatory Foggy Nelson appearance.

Black Widow #8
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Duane Swierczynski
Penciled by: Manuel Garcia

About the ending all I can say is: huh? That ending made no sense whatsoever. Garcia’s art wasn’t that great.

Avengers and the Infinity Gauntlet #4
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Brian Clevinger & Lee Black
Penciled by: Brian Churilla

The humor that was the strong point of this series was absent and the final issue was pretty groan inducing.

Fantastic Four #585
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jonathan Hickman
Penciled by: Steve Epting

Hickman’s Fantastic Four is a must read. Why does Andromeda appear in FF but not in Namor’s own book or Uncanny X-Men? Can a book where Namor is a guest supporting character pay more attention to his history and supporting cast then his own book or one where he’s a main supporting character?

Billy The Kid’s Old Timey Oddities and the Ghastly Fiend of London
Published by: Dark Horse Comics
Written by: Eric Powell
Art by: Kyle Hotz

An interesting mix, Billy the Kid and Jack the Ripper. And a pretty unique take on the Jeckyl and Hyde story.

Shadowland: Power Man #4
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Fred Van Lente
Penciled by: Mahmud Asrar & Ray-Anthony Height

Decent but cliche wrap-up to the mini-series. The new Power Man should be an interesting character but right now he’s a walking/talking stereotype.

JLA/The 99 #2
Published by: DC Comics & Teshkeel Comics
Written by: Fabian Nicieza and Stuart Moore
Penciled by: Tom Derenick

Not a bad little crossover. Wonder Woman being in the JMS costume, is it a bit of foreshadowing or did the editors and writers just not know how to include her?

Uncanny X-Force #2
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Rick Remender
Art by: Jerome Opena

Not as strong as the first issue. Seemed kind of hurried and messy.

The Amazing Spider-Man #649
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Dan Slott
Penciled by: Humberto Ramos

About time Parker got to be a scientist. Surprised it took this long for it to happen. Decent issue. The new Hobgoblin looks like could be an interesting return/remade villian.
