Quick Thought Reviews For The Week Of 08/24/11
Published on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 by

Another week is in the books. Besides the reviews featured Troy checked more books.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #169
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Larry Hama
Penciled by: S.L. Gallant

I liked this issue but Hama’s sense of time is WAY off. The whole thing in the Chrysler building doesn’t match up with the amount of time it would take to get the Joes to Greenland. Hama started off strong, got really bad, and is now getting better again. This is a decent book and as anti-ninja as I am, I’m actually interested in seeing where Hama is going with the Russian Arishakages.

Dungeons & Dragons #10
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: John Rogers
Penciled by: Andrea Di Vito, Horacio Domingues, Vicente Alcazar, Nacho Arranz

Another fun issue of D&D. Good pacing helps keep it interesting. Rogers is doing good things with this title. I love Bree’s plan.

New Mutants #30
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning
Art by: David Lafuente

First off, Lafuente’s art is ugly. His layouts are odd and his figures are just ugly. He’s in the middle of styles. There’s some realism to it as well as exaggeration and it just doesn’t work being in the middle. The dead gods talk weird, there’s no asgardian to their script. The bit with Mephisto was great and can’t wait to see what his date with Amara is like.

X-Men Legacy #253
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Mike Carey
Penciled by: Khoi Pham

I’m glad this storyline is over. I can’t stand Legion. He needs to go. This storyline was pretty boring. The new Legacy team just doesn’t feel right. They aren’t supposed to work well together but it comes across as unnatural. Pham’s art is hit or miss in the same issue. Some panels are fantastic and some are just plain.

X-Men Legacy #254
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Mike Carey
Penciled by: Steve Kurth

Just a blah issue. Not particularly exciting. The Shi’Ar that Rogue meets are supposed to be familiar I guess? Their appearance must have happened when I wasn’t reading this title. The whole time Rogue is with them is oddly written. It’s got a slightly off feel to it. Hard to explain, but they’re not well written scenes. It is good to see Havok, Polaris and Rachel back though.
