Quick Thought Reviews For The Week of 08/03/11

After an absence Troy’s Quick Thoughts returns.

Wolverine #13
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jason Aaron
Penciled by: Renato Guedes

This storyline is starting to drag. The last couple issues have been hit or miss. The flashback of this one was a hit. It was nice to see into the inner workings of the Hand a little bit. Thankfully the next issue wraps up this year plus storyline. I haven’t been a big fan of it at all. Let’s get Wolverine back to doing what he does best.

The Boys #57
Published by: Dynamite Entertainment
Written by: Garth Ennis
Art by: Russ Braun

Braun is starting to look more and more like Robertson every day. On one hand it’s nice in a consistency kind of way, but it would have been nice to see a different style on the book. Things are starting to heat up. Parts of this issue were hard to follow, but over all it works good as a “move along” issue, just there to advance the overall story.

Flashpoint #4
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Geoff Johns
Penciled by: Andy Kubert

I still don’t understand what the whole point of Flashpoint was. Why create this alternate world that doesn’t make any sense? The story isn’t even that good. The art by Kubert rocks though.

Dungeons & Dragons #9
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: John Rogers
Art by: Andrea Di Vito & Guido Guidi

This isn’t one of the strongest issues of this title. There’s some jumps in the storytelling but it functions well as a “set-up” issue, moving the story along. I do like how Rogers is growing all the stories organically, building off of the previous ones as the series progresses.

X-Factor #223
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Peter David
Penciled by: Emanuela Lupacchino

It’s nice to see David bringing back some of his concepts from the Hulk. This is a multi-layered title. David has a great handle on his large cast, giving them all moments to shine and weaving alot of plots into the book. Excellant and worth reading.

Avengers Academy #17
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Christos Gage
Penciled by: Sean Chen

Decent issue. Nice bits of wrap-up after the “war” the kids went through in the previous issue. Gage is still doing a good job of showing how each of the kids could potentially be a super-villian or one of the best heroes ever.
