Quick Thought Reviews For 03/14/12
Published on Wednesday, March 21, 2012 by

There were alot of #1s this week that got full reviews, but here’s some quick thoughts on other books.

Wolverine And The X-Men #7
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jason Aaron
Penciled by: Nick Bradshaw

This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite books. I’m glad that Broo is getting some face time, it’s great that they didn’t leave that storyline hanging. This is just a fun book. So much stuff happening at once. Great characterization by Aaron. Looking forward to Bachalo’s return but Bradshaw has done some good work.

G.I. Joe #11
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Chuck Dixon
Art by: Alex Cal

Good stuff. Cal’s art is getting better and better. The page with ninjas, bows drawn? Excellant. The Cobra Command storyline is decent. It’s nice to see the Joes in action, but so far there hasn’t been much happening. It is certainly setting up an interesting status quo post Cobra Command.

Demon Knights #7
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Paul Cornell
Penciled by: Diogenes Neves w/ Robson Rocha

I’m not sure what to think of this book. The first storyline just ended and even though it was interesting, I’m not sure it led anywhere. In the end it feels drawn out, like it could have been shorter and have more depth to it. This book is on the bubble. I like the premise, but I’m not sure if there’s anything here to latch onto yet.

Locke & Key: Clockworks #5
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Joe Hill
Art by: Gabriel Rodriguez

I discovered this series with Keys To The Kingdom and haven’t caught up yet. This is the first issue where my lack of prior knowledge hurt me. I don’t know how Mrs. Locke got into the well or the significance of that. But it was still another great issue. Great stuff from Hill and Rodriguez.

The Activity #4
Published by: Image Comics
Written by: Nathan Edmondson
Art by: Mitch Gerads

Great stuff. Really strong espionage tale. I loved how Edmondson showed the team preparing for the mission, even done to performing it in rain conditions. Very strong and well written. The art was very solid but the coloring left a little to be desired. It was hard to follow in parts during the mission.
