Quick Thoughts For The Week Of 03/30/11
Published on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 by

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

The first part of the origin of John Steele. It’s interesting that Brubaker is ending his Secret Avengers run with this story. Max Fury, Thorndrake and the rest of the Shadow Council are still out there. Also weird that Brubaker is leaving the title with so much unfinished.

Wolverine #7
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jason Aaron
Art by: Daniel Acuna

Cyclops Anti-Wolverine plan doesn’t go as planned. The demons are too strong and the women that Wolverine has helped through the years; Jubilee, Kitty and Rogue; join the fight. Decent art that looks rushed in parts.

Savage Dragon #170
Published by: Image Comics
Written/Art by: Erik Larsen

The powers of Mighty Man in the hands of a baby. Now that’s scary. The new direction is interesting with Malcolm and Angel left with all these pieces to pick up and responsibilities and no one to help guide them.

The Amazing Spider-Man #657
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Dan Slott
Art by: Marcos Martin & various

A nice and bittersweet goodbye to the Human Torch by one of his best friends. Also serves as a nice connection to the start of FF with Spider-Man joining the team.

Fables #103
Published by: DC Comics/Vertigo
Written by: Bill Willingham
Penciled by: Mark Buckingham

Another solid issue of Fables. The assembly of the super team is great. I like where the Beast’s story is going. It looks like his curse transferred to his daughter. It’ll be interesting to see how far this super team concept is taking, how far Willingham takes the mythos and tropes of comic books.

Sherlock Holmes Year One #3
Published by: Dynamite Entertainment
Written by: Scott Beatty
Art by: Daniel Indro

An interesting look at the world of Holmes. He’s an interesting character. The book works best with Watson as the narrator. As he learns about Holmes, so do we.

Wonder Woman #609
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: J. Michael Straczynski & Phil Hester
Penciled by: Don Kramer

Glad to see Kramer on a full issue again. Great use of Doctor Psycho and the “history” of Wonder Woman. Interesting stuff.

Halcyon #4
Published by: Image Comics
Written by: Marc Guggenheim & Tara Butters
Art by: Ryan Bodenheim

Why is Sabre so obsessed with ending the GHP? Why does he not want the world to be fixed? There is so much here that could be explored but this has rapidly turned into a simple superhuman story. The deeper issues are being skirted.

X-23 #8
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Marjorie Liu
Penciled by: Ryan Stegman

I hope Stegman stays on. Conrad’s pencils were good, but they made Laura look too old. Stegman’s style matches Laura and the book better. The meeting between Laura and Daken goes as well as would have figured it. Should have known that Gambit knew Tiger Tyger.

Spider-Girl #5
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Paul Tobin
Art by: Matthew Southworth & Sergio Cariello

Why is this book being canceled? It’s a great read. Anya is a fun character. It’s a strong book. With the revelation of just who/what the creepy neighbor is, it opens up alot of stories. The good die young.
