User Reviews Had a Bit Much Holiday Cheer

Talking about movies, music, TV, and other stuff is tiring and time consuming, so there is a vacuum to be filled, and User Reviews are doing the filling.

Templar, back from a brief hiatus, was compelled to write about Batman #683

Story: 5 / Art: 4

Morrison paints rich flashbacks that pull the entire history of Batman together, and manages not to be too heady… although there is reward here for the more seasoned Bat-fan. The art is also excellent, nearly on par with the art throughout RIP. I’ve enjoyed these two issues immensely, and now I can’t wait to read the conclusion of this is Final Crisis.


DoctorColossus beats the drum for Guerillas #3. Although brief, he certainly makes his point. 

Story: 4 / Art: 4

This book is so much stronger in story than I expected from the premise. The concept is so gimmicky, that it’s easy to brush off as silly simian-fetishistic nonsense. But Brahm Revel is putting out a book with surprising levels of nuance and character depth.


gat0rl1vebeatz, a screen name I’m honestly not sure how to say, checks in after coming back to Immortal Iron Fist #21

Story: 4 / Art: 5

When I checked out the Marvel solicits and saw the artist for this issue is none other than Timothy Green, I knew this is the time to go back — and I am glad that I did. Timothy Green’s art has a very serene, simple look. His lines are definitive without a crap load of ink to add emphasis. The future Iron Fist’s movement is fluid, and you can feel the impact of every punch and kick. Green is PERFECT for this martial arts sci-fi.


akamuu jumped on Astounding Wolf-Man #11 because he was forced to, but it turns out, it was a good time. 

Story: 4 / Art: 4

This is not a crossover that requires you to know anything about Wolfman, or Invincible. But it was good enough to convince me to go and put my hands on as many Astounding Wolfman back issues as I can find.

So there you have it, a cross section of reviews and opinions on the comics of the week.  Make sure you go check out the rest of the reviews, as there are many.


  1. Astounding Wolf-Man is absolutely worth buying. And it never hurts to support a creator like Robert Kirkman.

  2. YAY! my first review!

    @J4K3 and akamuu:

    Agreed, I’m all caught up in the Wolf-Man lore now and glad I did that.

  3. No way! chlop’s vagina joke for Wildstorm Armageddon should’ve made this list!

    Either way great reviews all around. Gotta say though I am not a fan of AWM. I tried reading the first trade but it felt so convoluted and boring, it was a chore to read.

  4. I would love to have a review noted, but then I’d have to read these silly books that I buy, and honestly, who would want to do that?
