Quick Thought Reviews For 05/09/12
Published on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 by

The second week of May brought alot of books.

Memorial #5
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Chris Roberson
Art by: Rich Ellis

I really like this series, and the world being created. The patchwork nature of it leaves all the cards on the table. Em is a good character, serving as a good point of view onto the world. I’m calling it now, Em is the missing sister.

Wolverine And The X-Men #10
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jason Aaron
Penciled by: Chris Bachalo

I don’t like that this was a tie-in issue. But at least Jason Aaron made it good. “You’ve got a Krakoa? Where’d you get a Krakoa” is probably the best line all year. Bachalo makes the talking head sense extremely interesting. It’s a great looking book. Love the little bits of Krakoa popping up everywhere. Decent philosophical discussion but I still feel like there isn’t any meat to it.

Morning Glories #18
Published by: Image Comics
Written by: Nick Spencer
Art by: Joe Eisma

At last some things are starting to come together and make a little bit of sense. Took long enough. There’s a major Lost vibe to this series now, a good team and a bad team. It’s still more confusing then it needs to be though. Eisma’s figures are still pretty stiff.

Uncanny X-Force #25
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Rick Remender
Art by: Mike McKone

Really, really liked McKone’s art in this issue. Some of his best. Story was just okay. I get what Remender is trying to do with the “are we murderers” angle but he’s not selling it that well. I liked the White Room, it was great up until the Omega Clan was introduced. No thanks.

X-Men Legacy #266
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Christos Gage
Penciled by: Rafa Sandoval

So the Avengers think it’s okay to show up at a school to keep an eye on it and make sure no one there gets involved? None of them have an issue with that? Did everyone involved with this event take bad-writing pills? At least it looks good.

The Punisher #11
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Greg Rucka
Art by: Mirko Colak

My biggest issue with Punisher books was “how do you keep it interesting”. Frank Castle is basically a one-note guy. He kills criminals. End of story. The more you try to build a rogues gallery, the more time these people escape, the more inept the Punisher looks. And there’s only so much material with the character. So I like what Rucka is doing. He’s using the Punisher, not as the main focus/character, but as the force around which everything rotates. It’s a great way to handle the character and keep the book interesting.

Captain America #11
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Ed Brubaker
Art by: Patrick Zircher

Nice to see Diamondback again. I like the angle that she’s working with SHIELD. Good place for her. I’ve always liked the Scourge concept and nice to see it back again. Excellent art by Zircher.
