Quick Thought Reviews For The Week Of 06/29/11
Published on Wednesday, July 6, 2011 by

FF #5
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jonathan Hickman
Penciled by: Barry Kitson

Don’t like the Mark Bagley cover. Loved the Kitson art. All the pieces that Hickman is weaving make for a great story. I like that he’s expanded the FF to include Alex Powers and the other kids, that they’re as important as the others.

Uncanny X-Men #539
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Kieron Gillen
Art by: Ibraim Roberson

Decent art. Decent story. Kind of a waste though. This is “Uncanny X-Men”, why a story focused on Hope when she has her own title?

Danger Girl And The Army Of Darkness #2
Published by: Dynamite Entertainment
Written by: Andy Hartnell
Art by: Chris Bolson

This is shaping up to be a good crossover. The first issue showed how Abbey Chase gets involved and this issue spotlights how Ash gets involved. And it’s in typical Ash fashion. Loved the flashback, reminded me of the opening of Army Of Darkness. And again, I think Bolson does a better Danger Girl then Campbell does.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #8
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Nick Spencer
Art by: Dan Panosian

For a title called T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, there’s a remarkable lack of them in the story. It’s nice tying the current team together with the past through Colleen, but when are we actually going to see the team in real action instead of one by one? Oh wait, we’re not, because the relaunch is coming soon.

The Lone Ranger: The Death Of Zorro #5
Published by: Dynamite Entertainment
Written by: Ande Parks
Art by: Esteve Polls

An odd way to end the story. This has been a very oddly paced story and the end was even more odd. Badly paced. What was the point of the “zorros” from Spain? The Lone Ranger didn’t even have a big role. Where was Tonto? Odd.

The Rocketeer Adventures #2
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Various
Art by: Various

Another good tribute issue to Dave Stevens and the Rocketeer. Fun stories. Good art. Good stuff.

Wonder Woman #612
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: J. Michael Straczynski & Phil Hester
Penciled by: Don Kramer

What started off interesting has become fairly boring and convoluted. The reveal of the Gods makes no sense. Who is Nemesis? Never heard of that one. The last page is a bit surprising though.

Wolverine: The Best There Is #7
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Charlie Huston
Art by: Juan Jose Ryp

All Ryp’s women look alike. Emma looks like Dazzler who looks like the librarian lady from the previous arc. What’s the point of this mature title? The swears are bleeped out. There’s some suggestive dialogue and Emma walks around naked (covered up). But what is the point? Take away the dialogue and some better angles with the art and the story would fit into any other Wolverine title.

The Amazing Spider-Man #664
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Dan Slott
Penciled by: Giuseppe Camuncoli

Strong issue compared to more recent ones. The Wraith is an interesting new character. The duality of Mister Negative was interesting. I don’t like the name Anti-Venom, but do like how Eddie Brock was in this issue.
