Quick Thought Reviews For 09/21/11
Published on Wednesday, September 28, 2011 by

X-Factor #225
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Peter David
Art by: Leonard Kirk

David does a remarkable job handing the large cast of X-Factor. Can’t wait to see how Havok and Polaris fit in. The story ties into older X-Factor issues and is filled with David’s usual excellant dialogue (at least it’s excellant in X-Factor).

Fables #109
Published by: Vertigo
Written by: Bill Willingham
Penciled by: Mark Buckingham

Nice introduction to Snow & Bigby’s children. They haven’t gotten much attention until now and it’s nice to see the different personalities. Willingham does a good job of moving around all the different subplots and moving them further.

Uncanny X-Men #543
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Kieron Gillen
Penciled by: Greg Land

Interesting direction to go. Should be good reading to see the conflict within Peter Rasputin now. Cyclops is a bit harsh with the mayor. The dialogue from Kitty is a bit hard to follow.

The Infinite #2
Published by: Image Comics
Written by: Robert Kirkman
Art by: Rob Liefeld

Wow this is some really bad Liefeld art. Worse then normal. He can’t even layout a simple panel without making it look wrong. The story isn’t much better. I do like that there’s a paradox at work, makes it interesting. But overall it’s just bad.

Heroes For Hire #12
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning
Penciled by: Brad Walker

Is Heroes For Hire ending? It had a good premise. Was a good book. I think having to get into the middle of Fear Itself caused a bump. This issue brings a closure to the series, if it is ending.

Avengers #17
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Brian Michael Bendis
Penciled by: John Romita Jr.

Ugly Romita Jr. art. This book needs a new artist bad. The cover and solicitations lie. There’s no hook-up between Hawkeye and Spider-Woman in this issue. None at all. They kissed last issue and that was it. Nothing more here. Just more of the extended fight with the Nazi robots.

X-Men: Schism #4
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jason Aaron
Penciled by: Alan Davis

I can see the motivation of both. Logan, for all his nastiness, has always had a soft spot for protecting the younger mutants. It’s why he’s always taken on a charge. So that part of the arguement works. And like always, it all comes down to Jean.

Excellant Alan Davis art.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #2
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Tom Waltz
Art by: Dan Duncan w/ Kevin Eastman

Interesting new take on the origin of the Turtles. Love Splinter in action as a rat in this issue. Also liking the origin for Casey Jones and how Raph is on his own. Great new beginning. Old Hob works as well. Fun stuff.
