robbydzwonar gives the business to Batman: Battle For The Cowl – The Underground #1. Story 2 / Art 1

Wow, what a mess this was.  Everything seems to be straight out of 1992 here.  The retelling of Knightfall and Danny DeVito reprising his role at the Penguin from Batman Returns.  I thought Battle For The Cowl was supposed to be bringing us into the future of Batman mythologies? Although the Batman comics from that era probably had a lot better art then The Underground #1!  Harley Quinn and Catwoman didn’t even attract my eye whatsoever.  This guy can’t even make girls look good.  Yuck.  This art is a mess!!

patio gets literary in his praise for Uncanny X-Men #508. Hey, as long as he’s enjoying it. Story 5 / Art 3

“Matt, Matt… you’re glib! You don’t even know what Kwannon is!” That’s what my inner Tom Cruise was saying as I read this issue. The thing is, Matt Fraction has a voice, a strong voice, in these X-Men books, the likes of which I haven’t read in a long time. And it can be a little bit Holly-Go-Lightly at times. But it’s the breath of fresh air that this title needed to break from the yoke that was sitting around it’s neck.

akamuu is feeling rather blase about Literals #1, the third part of the big Fables crossover. What is this, 2006? Story 2 / Art 4

It’s rare that a #1 issue isn’t a jumping on point, but that’s the case here.  This is part 3 of the Fables crossover, and it’s not very exciting.  Overall, The Literals, and Kevin Thorn is a great concept: a character who is, essentially, the God of Fables has a magic pen that allows him to revise the Universe at will.  But something about this arc just doesn’t, at all, grab me.

dharmabum slips a little commentary into his review of Captain America: Theater of War – Brother in Arms. Story 5 / Art 5

I really liked this Captain America story because it was a classic heroes tale. This story reminds us of the difference between classic (real) heros like Cap and Superman who never compromise their morals; and the modern anti-hero like the Punisher who will do whatever it takes to get the job done, including compromising their morals.

As always, thanks very much to the folks who took the time to read and review their comics and share with the rest of us. Read the rest here.


  1. Holly Golightly??

  2. still working up the nerve to one of these. For the most part they are all well thought out and written i don’t always agree…..
