Quick Thoughts Reviews – Week of 01/12/11

I Am An Avenger #5
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Various
Art by: Various

A couple of decent stories. Nothing spectacular but good Alan Davis art in the last story. The Cap suicide awareness story was pretty good for a silent tale. Excellant art did a great job showing the emotion of the boy.

Knight and Squire #4
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Paul Cornell
Art by: Jimmy Broxton w/ Staz Johnson

A fun issue that lets us know more about the personal history between the Knight and Squire. This is a decidely British take on Batman and Robin and is pretty fun to read.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #3
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Nick Spencer
Art by: Cafu & Howard Chaykin

This series is hard to follow. It’s all over the time with flashbacks and moving back and forth. It seems like it’s taking forever for this first mission to be completed. It’s hard to tell if it’s even the first mission still. How long ago in the book’s timeline was last issue and Lightning’s part of it? The flashbacks were nice, showing the “death” of NoMan over time.

Black Panther: The Man Without Fear
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: David Liss
Art by: Francesco Francavilla

I really enjoy Francavilla’s work on this, it’s got a great noir feel and tone. Liss’ writing is okay, not as strong as the first part. Vlad’s way of talking is getting old and there’s a lot of jumping in the plot of this issue. How do the bank robbers get Brian the busboy hostage? He’s inside the restaurant two buildings down last we saw him. The tension between Cage and T’Challa comes across as forced.

Birds of Prey #8
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Gail Simone
Art by: Guillem March

Wish the colorist had been paying attention. The last half of the book has Zinda right, bare legs, but the first part has her in tights. The story is alright. It’s really nice to see something that happened in another book, Batgirl, have ramifications in this book. That doesn’t happen often.

Batgirl #17
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Bryan Q. Miller
Art by: Pere Perez

Perez fits the tone of this book alot better then Dustin Nguyen. Can we make him the permenant artist? This book just screamed fun from the pages. The scene with Batgirl and Robin on the fire escape was well done with both written and art. Great scene. The whole interaction between Batgirl and Robin was great.
