Quick Thought Reviews For The Week of 02/23/11

R.P.M. #3

This one is hard to follow. The pacing is off right from the start and some of the art doesn’t flow right, making it hard to read and understand. The basic story is good, with a couple of little twists that make it interesting.

Uncanny X-Men #533
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Matt Fraction & Kieron Gillen
Penciled by: Greg Land

There’s a sing-songy quality to the writing. Lobe’s speech is interesting and kind of catchy in a way. I like the banter between Dazzler and Pixie. I’m glad to see Pixie getting some more spotlight time. The Emma/Shaw storyline has run it’s course, time to end it.

Secret Avengers #11
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Ed Brubaker
Art by: Mike Deodato & Will Conrad

An action packed end to the Shang Chi arc. We don’t learn anything more about the Shadow Council but it’s still a satisfying end to the story. I like the new look for Valkyrie with the jacket and pants. Can see what a tactician Rogers really is in this issue.

Avengers #10
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Brian Michael Bendis
Penciled by: John Romita Jr.

Can we please get a new penciler on this book? People seriously think that Romita Jr is doing good work on this series? Really? The story is okay. Nice to see all the Avengers teams mixing it up and there are some cute and funny moments.

The Sixth Gun #9
Published by: Oni Press
Written by: Cullen Bunn

Another excellant issue. Different pieces moving across the board and we learn more of the history of the guns and the vault they unlock and what it would unleash. We also learn that Becky isn’t as innocent as she appears at first glance.

New Mutants #22
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Mike Carey
Penciled by: Steve Kurth

Steve Kurth and Allen Martinez made a great team. Was a decent issue but didn’t explain anymore about the Age of X and how all these came to be. Also Legacy (Rogues) “turn” from a believer to a doubter happened to quick to be believable. Just seeing Pryde outside the barriers was enough to make her start questioning things? Finding a camera full of blank pictures was enough? Just can’t buy it.

Captain America #615
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Ed Brubaker
Penciled by: Butch Guice

An end to the “Trial of Captain America” and it’s an interesting end. The Prosecutor actually says things that make sense and Bucky’s reaction tells us all we need to know about the man who is now Captain America. Guice’s art is good, it’s always been good.

Thor #620
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Matt Fraction
Art by: Pascual Ferry

Fraction does a great job giving this title an otherworldly tone and feel. The battle feels epic if extremely short. Nice move by Thor at the end. The Asgardian Blood Legion is kind of a cool idea but seems like it comes out of nowhere.
