Quick Thought Reviews For The Week Of 10/12/11
Published on Thursday, October 20, 2011 by

Morning Glories #13
Published by: Image Comics
Written by: Nick Spencer
Art by: Joe Eisma

Eisma’s art isn’t progressing. It’s regressing a little here and there. His characters are still too stiff in spots and some of them are starting to look alike. I do like how the color of the school outfit shows where they stand in the hierarchy. Zoe and Ike are in the blue well Jade, Jun, Hunter and Casey are in red still. I have a feeling Hunter might be in blue soon. Still too many mysteries and not enough explanation. These kids are accepting things too easily, which is still the biggest problem with this series.

Generation Hope #12
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Kieron Gillen
Art by: Steven Sanders

Teon is a great character. The last page is spectacular. We know his powers are instinct, he does/says whatever is needed at that given moment. So does he really think that Hope is doing things the right way or was it just what needed to be said at that moment. I’m glad Pixie is joning the team. I like her. Hope’s control over the others is annoying. It needs to end.

Grifter #2
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Nathan Edmondson
Penciled by: Cafu

I like the new take on Grifter. Still don’t like the mask, but like how they worked “grifter” into his personality. I like the whole “is he crazy or not” angle but I’m not sure how well it’ll make for an ongoing once that angle is used up. Hopefully Edmondson has a direction in mind because the “fugitive meets ‘they live'” can only last so long.

Demon Knights #1
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Paul Cornell
Penciled by: Diogenes Neves

Neves art is much better on this series then Green Arrow. He’s made for this type of story. I like what Cornell is setting up. Interesting mix of characters. Some funny moments. This issue is a non-stop battle. Good stuff.

The New Avengers #17
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Brian Michael Bendis
Art by: Mike Deodato & Will Conrad

I like the depths of Osborn’s plan with Ultimo. I like how he reacts and adjusts the plan. He seems to be holding in his passions, as Gorgon puts it. It’ll be interesting to see how he does with Hydra, AIM and Hammer. I didn’t like how amateurish the Avengers were. Way too out of character. Also weird to make a big deal out of Daredevil joining and he’s not in this issue.

Infestation Outbreak #4
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Chris Ryall & Tom Waltz
Art by: David Messina

Good wrap-up to the mini-series. Natural progression from the end of Infestation to setting the stage for Infestation 2. I would like to see more of CVO though. It’s a good team, good mix of characters, and could make for some interesting stories. I’d almost rather have a CVO ongoing instead of Infestation 2. I’m a big fan of Messina’s art. There’s some panels where it’s not as good as the rest, where it looks rushed, but that should change with time and experience.

Ultimate Comic’s X-Men #2
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Nick Spencer
Penciled by: Paco Medina

I love Medina’s pencils. Always have. He’s doing some top notch work in this series so far. I’m liking what Spencer is setting up. The god angle is pretty interesting. A bit wordy, and it was kind of hard to tell who was narrating. But overall a pretty strong issue. The dialogue between Bobby and Johnny was very good.

The Cape #2
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Jason Ciaramella
Art by: Zach Howard

Awesome Zach Howard art. Really great stuff. Eric, The Cape, is a guy that can’t see that what he has in front of him is good and all he can see is what he doesn’t have. That pushes him off the deep end and it’s a fast journey. Good and epic stuff.

Resurrection Man #2
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning
Art by: Fernando Dagnino

I loved the old Resurrection Man seris and I’m pretty sure I’m going to like this one. Love how DnA are throwing clues out there for who Mitch was. LIke the part with the Body Doubles and how he should know them and how he interacted with them prior to becoming the Resurrection Man. Or at least we think he did based on their banter. Good stuff. Dagnino’s art is excellant.

Resurrection Man #2 receives
