Quick Thoughts Reviews For 06/01/11
Published on Wednesday, June 8, 2011 by

G.I. Joe #2
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Chuck Dixon
Penciled by: Javier Saltares

Super-Helix has to go. She’s starting to annoy me. Good to see some of the other Joes used in the hunt for Zartan. Good to see that they are fairly organized and he doesn’t get far. Looks like Storm Shadow will be laying waste to alot of Joes next issue.

X-Factor #220
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Peter David
Art by: Paul Davidson

One thing we learn in this issue.. Davidson cannot draw pregnant women at all. Really bad. I’m glad to see Feral back. She was always somewhat interesting and it’ll be cool to see what David can do with her considering what he’s done with the rest of the cast.

Who Is Jake Ellis? #4
Published by: Image Comics
Written by: Nathan Edmondson
Art by: Tonci Zonjic

Another solid issue of this solid series. We’re starting to get some answers. Edmondson does a good job with the breaking and entering part. Seeing that Jake isn’t infallible works nicely.

Wonder Woman #611
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: J. Michae Straczynski
Penciled by: Don Kramer & Eduardo Pansica

When was the last time Kramer did a full issue? This is an example of how the writers let the story get away from them and now they have to rush things to bring it to it’s conclusion. Alot happens but none of it good.

Herc #4
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente
Penciled by: Neil Edwards

So far I’ve liked this series but this issue spotlighted what I don’ tlike about Hercules, the non-stop talking and bragging. It was off to such a good start too. Here’s hoping that the team can recover.

Spider-Girl #7
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Paul Tobin
Penciled by: Clayton Henry & Sergio Cariello

Why is it that the good series end early? Spider-Girl is a great series. Tobin has a great handle on the character. It reminds me of DC’s Batgirl and how Bryan Q. Miller has such a handle on his teenage female character. Good book.

The Strange Case of Mister Hyde #2
Published by: Dark Horse Comics
Written by: Cole Haddon
Art by: M.S. Corley

Watching Jeckyll manipulate Adye to the dark side is interesting. It’s a good book and Haddon writes a good psychological thriller. The art style is interesting if a bit stiff in spots.

Avengers Academy #14.1
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Christos Gage
Penciled by: Sean Chen

A look at some more of the kids that Osborne tortured. One of them has become a boy billionaire, using his powers to make himself alot of money and change the world. The odd thing is that he turns into a traditional super-villian at the end. He’s trying to recruit the Academy kids and he manipulates things his way. Except why? Why doesn’t he do the good things for real and why haven’t the Avengers brought the depressed kid into the Academy? Too many whys.

Superboy #8
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Jeff Lemire
Art by: Pier Gallo

I wonder if the upcoming DC reboot/relaunch had any influence on his this issue was laid out. The Phantom Stranger comes and puts everything in motion, all the weirdness up until now is mostly described. Psionic Lad, whose mission is to destroy Superboy, gets revealed as maybe he’s not a bad guy after all, and it’s shown that Simon Valentine’s ancestor was close to the Kents. Too many coincedances, and things coming together rapidly. And why does Nate Kent bear a resemblance to Superman and Superboy? The Supes are adopted, let’s not forget that.

X-Men #12
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Christopher Yost
Art by: Paco Medina & Dalibor Talajic

This is shaping up to be an interesting story. The idea of the Evolutionaries is nice. It’s a shame the Neo got wiped out like that. I liked the appearance of the Celestials. Really helps ground the story in the greater Marvel Universe.
