Quick Thought Reviews For 11/23/11
Published on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 by

Dungeons & Dragons #13
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: John Rogers
Penciled by: Andrea Di Vito

Have I ever mentioned that this is one of my favorite books? The dialogue between the characters is awesome. Rogers nails the little bits, the little asides that make characters more then just two dimensional. It’s the little bits that make a book so strong. The plot is great as well. Excellant art.

Wolverine And The X-Men #2
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jason Aaron
Penciled by: Chris Bachalo

Aaron really has a handle on Bobby Drake and utilizes him in an interesting way in this story. Gotta love the various things the Hellfire Club sends at the X-Men. Pretty neat and well drawn by Bachalo. There’s an element of crazy fun to this. Love the Beast’s comments has he chides himself for building on top of Krakatoa. For being Aaron’s first team book, he’s handling the ensemble cast very well. Love the parts between Idie and Broo.

The Sixth Gun #17
Published by: Oni Press
Written by: Cullen Bunn
Art by: Brian Hurtt

Another great issue by Bunn & Hurtt. I’m glad Billjohn is back. I liked him when he was alive and I’m liking him as a golem now. I feel bad for Gord, really bad. Poor guy. It’s nice to know part of the origins of the guns already and with a few simple panels, Bunn expands on the history of the world setting up two rival organizations. If you’re not reading this, you need to be.

Voodoo #3
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Ron Marz
Penciled by: Sami Basri

Decent issue. It’s a bit of an odd issue though because it does alot of set-up, but in a way isn’t. We meet Voodoo’s hybrid handler but don’t learn much more about her or her mission. We get that they don’t like humans, but we don’t even know who “they” are. The inclusion of Kyle Rayner seems a bit forced. That he gives Voodoo the benefit of the doubt and releases her is a very large stretch and didn’t buy it. Totally forced. Two other hot women turn into aliens, but he gives the third hot woman the benefit of the doubt? Doesn’t work.

X-Men #21
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Victor Gischler
Penciled by: Will Conrad

Let’s invent a new nation, make it so this new nation can gain sentinals and cap it all off by making an existing MU nation into a bad one. Symkaria has never been an invading nation. They have always been in the position that Puternicstan finds itself in now. For some reason I can’t see Silver Sable, or her father, ordering their tanks to invade and allow their soldiers to rape and pillage. Bad editing.

The Shade #2
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: James Robinson
Art by: Cully Hamner

Has a long time fan of Robinson’s Opal City and it’s characters, I’m liking this book and glad it’s coming out. But as part of the New 52 it makes no sense. It’s a great book. Excellant story. Robinson at his best. Excellant art. But as a book of the New 52 it just doesn’t work. It’s not new reader friendly. It’s totally tied to the pre-New 52 DCU. This was a book long announced, so I think this is it just finally getting published and DC said “forget about the new 52 changes”. Or possibly it’s part of Earth 2 where Robinson will be doing JSA soon?
