Quick Thoughts For The Week Of 11/16/11

The Avengers #19
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Brian Michael Bendis
Art by: Daniel Acuna

I like Acuna’s art. It’s unique. What I didn’t like was this issue. For awhile there I thought Marvel’s editorial was doing a great job keeping everything together but not now. When did Osborn escape the Raft? He got transferred to another facility in the Osborn mini-series. And how can they be coming down on John Walker when the Raft was destroyed in Fear Itself? That made zero sense. And to have the Vision just appear like that out of nowhere? Horrible. Stupid explanation by Stark. And isn’t there a Vision in Young Avengers already?

Avengers Academy #22
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Christos Gage
Penciled by: Sean Chen

You know what’s starting to get more cliched then the ol’ “two super hero teams meet, have misunderstanding and fight” is the new version that has the two teams somewhat joking about it at the end. Ugh. Having the old cliche will now automatically knock a book down 2 points, no matter how good it is. And this was decent overall. Some nice Quicksilver character moments.

Morning Glories #14
Published by: Image Comics
Written by: Nick Spencer
Art by: Joe Eisma

I think Eisma is regressing. He hasn’t grown as an artist over the 14 issues. He still has the same issues he had at the beginning. I still don’t think we really know these kids that well and there’s just so much that is being glossed over. Why haven’t these kids paniced yet? They are too accepting of what is happening. It’s ruining the story. Time for some answers.

Justice League #3
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Geoff Johns
Penciled by: Jim Lee

The book looks good but it’s just not a well written one. All the characters are out of character. There’s no connection to the current DC universe. This takes place 5 years ago, but it just feels like an elseworlds tale. It’s odd. Bad dialogue. Horrible plotting.

Wonder Woman #3
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Brian Azzarello
Art by: Cliff Chiang

Now this is a good Wonder Woman story. Excellant art by Chiang. I love how he draws Wonder Woman. Still beautiful but imposing and strong. I like that they’ve changed up her origin, it makes more sense this way. The story in this issue was very good.

4 out of 5

Nightwing #3
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Kyle Higgins
Penciled by: Eddy Barrows

Even though the timeline is screwed up but this is still a good comic. Nice use of flashbacks. Higgins understands Nightwing pretty well. Excellant art. Very nice.

Six Guns #2
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Andy Diggle
Art by: Davide Gianfelice

Diggle is British right? So how does he understand what makes an American Western? This may be a modern story, but it’s a damn good western. Diggle does good getting the different pieces into play. Even the updates to the classic cowboy characters is nicely done. The new Two-Gun Kid is pretty interesting. Gianfelice’s art really helps set the mood.
