Quick Thought Reviews For The Week Of 09/28/11
Published on Wednesday, October 5, 2011 by

G.I. Joe #5
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Chuck Dixon
Penciled by: Javier Saltares and Ron Adrian

Not the best issue by a longshot. The Joe go to secure one of their back-up bases only to find out that Cobra knows about it too. Nice to see the RHINO in the pages but the size was wrong in a couple of spots. Odd way to draw Tripwire’s goggles. And the bridge scene was poorly laid out as well. The story was blah. Not good but not bad.

Avengers Academy #19
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Christos Gage
Penciled by: Tom Raney

For an issue that is supposed to should a ton of tension, I didn’t feel any at all. Not good. The last part of the Fear Itself tie-in was the weakest of the tie-in issues. The art wasn’t Raney’s best and he hasn’t drawn the book in 2 or 3 months. The idea of the kids sacrificing themselves doesn’t have the weight that it should.

Wolverine #16
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jason Aaron
Art by: Goran Sudzuka

Another strong issue by Aaron. He cuts right to the heart of Logan and brings him back to his senses in a way that makes sense for the type of character Logan is. I like that he borrowed from Bendis’ Avengers and had Logan’s friends/co-workers talking about him. That was a nice touch. It’s too bad the art wasn’t as good as the story. A better artist would have really made this story sing, instead Sudzuka’s work was just marginal.

The Sixth Gun #15
Published by: Oni Press
Written by: Cullen Bunn
Art by: Brian Hurtt

Awesome cover by Hurrt. Great art by Hurtt. I like the pacing of the story and revealing more about Gord. It looks like it’ll be an interesting reveal. I like how Bunn is using the images and tour to show us more about the Sword of Abraham and not using the words. Looks like lots of different faiths are represented.

The Ultimates #2
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jonathan Hickman
Art by: Esad Ribic

Great art by Ribic. Loved the story. The Dome and it’s inhabitants are great. Loved the opening sequance. Good stuff. Thor has a son? Interesting.

Secret Avengers #17
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Warren Ellis
Art by: Kev Walker

I don’t like Kev Walker’s art but I love Warren Ellis. I liked the quick set-up, the action, and the resolution that leaves us hanging. This is what the Marvel Universe needs, more of a darkside twist to superheroics and super-technology. This issue showed the darker/weirder things and also showed that we don’t get everything wrapped up nice and neat.

Snake Eyes #5
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Chuck Dixon
Art by: Alberto Muriel

Muriel’s pencils aren’t as strong as Atkins but he does a good job. Needs some work on the action and explosion scenes. I like how tightly this series is tied to the main book, taking a plot started in the main book and continuing here. Liked how Lighthorse impressed Snake Eyes. Like how they main book plot takes over but Dixon still wraps up loose ends from the previous plot.
