User Reviews Ignore Heat Waves!

There are too many books to cover, and our opinions are not the last word, so here are some of what the iFanbase had to say about their comics from the last week.

RobAbsten bought into the hype about The Amazing Spider-Man, but wasn’t all that happy with what he got with issue #566.

So, after hearing all the gushing about how great this book has been since the BND reboot I put it back on my list. I’ve been pretty happy about it so far, Last ep was really good, this one not so much.  This one was pretty average. Plain. Enh, okay, I’ll say it: boring. It just felt flat. And wrong.

JumpingJupiter felt some sympathy for Joker’s Asylum: Poison Ivy after Jason Aaron’s superb Penguin story last week.

Despite it’s weaknesses this is a fun book! Emphasis on fun! It’s nothing especially substantial but it’s a nice light snack. So sit down in your most comfortable chair with your favorite beverage and sink your teeth in this fanciful Tales From the Crypt, uhm I mean Joker’s Asylum.

Neb, sweet Neb, he of many fantastic reviews really did a nice job of summing up the relative disappointment of Hellblazer #246

champions classic comics in Omnibus form with his plea for recognition for the Howard the Duck Omnibus

Story: 4 / Art: 4

I know a lot of people on here to this day don’t know who or what Howard the Duck is…. All you need to know he’s a kick ass smoking duck who tried to run for president in the 1970’s. If that doesn’t at least catch your eye to flip threw [SIC] this book, I’ll be amazed.

And we’re out of here.  Thanks all for the great reviewing, and make sure to check out all the others in the Comics Section.


  1. Nice week on the reviews this week guys.  I really enjoyed them all!

  2. Josh, I like your little commentary prior to each review.

  3. TheNextChampion always has very insightful things to write and is very attentive to all the little details, often prompting me to go back and read things again for things I missed the first time. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as a regular columnist on this site someday.
