Quick Thought Reviews For The Week Of 07/25/12
Published on Friday, August 3, 2012 by

The last week in July and there were alot of books to read.

Fables #119
Published by: DC Comics/Vertigo
Written by: Bill Willingham
Penciled by: Mark Buckingham

Poor Therese. Not eating isn’t doing very much for her mental health. Love the one sided conversation with Dare. I feel bad for the toys, doing whatever they can for the belief of a child. Fables is consistently good.

Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow #15
Published by: IDW Publishing
Written by: Chuck Dixon
Art by: Robert Atkins & Atilio Rojo

Interesting game that Snake Eyes is playing. Wonder how much Storm Shadow really realizes and how much he’s naively letting pass him by. Loved the introductions of the Dreadnoks. This is how Zartan should have met them, makes more sense why they end up working with him. Good redesigns as well.

Avengers #28
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Brian Michael Bendis
Penciled by: Walter Simonson

Interesting look inside the mind of the Red Hulk (who needs a new name, badly). Liked the way this was laid out. One of the better AvX Avengers issues. Hulk didn’t go far enough.

The Ultimates #13
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Sam Humphries
Penciled by: Billy Tan

Decent Tan artwork, okay story. Captain America’s return wasn’t as strong as it should have been.

The Massive #2
Published by: Dark Horse Comics
Written by: Brian Wood
Art by: Kristian Donaldson

This issue was a bit hard to follow. The flashback wasn’t obvious at first and seemed a little odd. Was a good look at part of the world though. I really don’t like Callum Israel. Seems very weak as a character.

Saucer Country #5
Published by: Vertigo
Written by: Paul Cornell
Art by: Ryan Kelly

Still a strange series. A little bit on the goofy side. I liked how this issue played out. The doctor wants his scoop but Arcadia is using the doctor to get into her head, but she’s also hiding what she sees. Cornell does this scene perfectly, with what Arcadia tells the doctor fitting nicely against reality.

    • The ‘noks were introduced well. They’ve managed to pull together different origin stories into a new better story. The Joes and Turtles have been excellent from IDW recently.
