Quick Thought Reviews For 07/11/12
Published on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 by

The second week in July brought a new #1 from Valiant and alot more books.

G.I. Joe #15
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Chuck Dixon
Art by: Will Rosado

Another solid issue from Dixon. Since Cobra Command, this series has been getting better. Like seeing the different elements of the Joe team working and love Bildocker. Excellent art by Rosado.

Demon Knights #11
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Paul Cornell
Penciled by: Diogenes Neves & Robson Rocha

I was started to suspect that Al Jabr would be the first Engineer and it looks like I was right. I think the Demon Knights are the start of Stormwatch. Interesting to see how it goes from the Knights to Stormwatch especially with the Neanderthals mixed in. Interesting timeline. Decent art by Neves and Rocha.

Avengers Assemble #5
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Brian Micheal Bendis
Penciled by: Mark Bagley

This was the best issue of Assemble yet, and it was pretty good. Nice bits with the Guardians of the Galaxy and Rocket Raccoon was a riot. But.. The Black Widow kisses Hawkeye? The Widow is with Bucky, the Winter Soldier, she wouldn’t go kissing Hawkeye. And she mentions that Hawkeye has a girlfriend, but what about her boyfriend? Not good editing to let that go. And well I like the concept of Earth being declared off limits there have been way too many alien invasions and encounters recently for that to fly. Thanos has to go through proxies but the Kree can invade and the Shi’ar can launch an attack? Doesn’t fly.

Youngblood #72
Published by: Image Comics
Written by: John McLaughlin
Art by: Jon Malin

So the old Shaft sees a dead body turn up at the morgue and he instantly assumes it has something to do with him and Youngblood? How does he make that leap. Just bad writing and bad art. Just bad period. At various times I’ve liked Youngblood. This is not one of those times.
