Quick Thought Reviews: End Of November
Published on Wednesday, December 5, 2012 by

My comic pile just gets bigger and bigger but did manage to put a dent into it.

Iron Man #2
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Kieron Gillen
Penciled by: Greg Land

I like the idea of the Circle and hope to see more of them. I can see them being a thorn in Tony’s side now. Loved how Tony cheated. Perfect. Land’s art was decent but still had some odd looking faces here and there.

Wolverine & the X-Men #21
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Jason Aaron
Penciled by: Nick Bradshaw

So one of the new Hellfire Club kids is a descendent of Frankenstein? Interesting. I like how Aaron is adding more life and story to the kids, makes them more credible threats. Decent issue overall. I wasn’t a huge fan of Bradshaw’s art at the beginning, but it’s growing on me.

Justice League #14
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Geoff Johns
Penciled by: Tony Daniel

How long has the JL been together? Five years right? Graves was not their second encounter, but just the latest in a long string that started with Darkseid. Why does Johns keep making it seem like this group is new to each other and to what they do? When talking with Wonder Woman, Superman references Darkseid and Graves like that’s all they’ve encountered. It’s annoying.

Avengers Assemble #9
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Penciled by: Stefano Caselli

I like Caselli’s work. Hope to see more of him on this title or another. I like the idea of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner making a bet. It’s fun. But here’s the thing, it wouldn’t happen. The Avengers wouldn’t make a bet out of finding and saving someone. The bet is cool, but the reason was wrong.

Amazing Spider-Man #697
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Dan Slott
Penciled by: Giuseppe Camuncoli

I hope this is a concept that someone at Marvel picks up and runs with, it doesn’t deserve to disappear, but I love the idea of Roderick Kingsley “farming” out super-villian identities. He goes in, starts up the “franchise” and finds someone to carry it on. That’s a brilliant idea and needs to be followed up and explored somewhere. Don’t let this idea fade away.

The rest of the issue? Meh.

Teen Titans #14
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Scott Lobdell (with Fabian Nicieza)
Art by: Ale Garza

This book is just a big mess. Fourteen issues in and we barely know the group. Characters have come and gone and no one cares. What happened to Skitter? Have they actually been a team at all? Red Robin just ups and leaves. Complete mess. There’s no attachment to any of these characters. And bring back Brett Booth. He’s the only reason to read the book.
