This may be among the most boring comics I have ever read. Nothing interesting happened, and the characters weren’t interesting…

I know that the iFanboys didn’t think much of this series, but for me it was just about perfect. It…

May 9, 2013 2:15 pm Forgetting the upper ventilation, how could you super-hero in that? Unless Reed made the uniforms out of some special non-chafing material, that inner-thigh-line is going to hurt like hell after a little bit of running/ jumping/ climbing trees. Alternately, there are no "missing pieces" to her costume. The whole thing is there, it's just that parts are invisible all the time.
March 28, 2013 6:51 pm Montgomery's poetic turns of phrase seem to reflect the stark landscape of the comic he is reviewing, a style that is too affected not to be deliberate, but serves to make the review a kind of companion piece to the comic, moving it beyond simple commentary. There is a disjointedness to the review that also reflects the "East of West" narrative; like Hickman, Montgomery isn't holding the reader' hands. If you haven't read the comic, the review might be tough to follow, but in creating that difficulty Montgomery has laid down his reviewer's gauntlet: "I thought this was the best comic of the week," he seems to be saying. "If you want to follow this review, go out and buy it. You won't regret it." I've read a lot of reviews this week (big week!), and this is the one that's going to stay with me. I'll definitely be picking it up in trade, as well.
March 14, 2013 3:27 pm Braddock Academy (2010-2011) Writer: Paul Cornell Artist: Chynna Clugston-Major Letters: Chris Eliopoulos Marvel's short-lived experiment in blending manga, teen-drama and British humor, the series featured a new cast of teen characters, including Kid Briton, Anachronism and Bloodstone, with a supporting cast of characters from Marvel's British stable, including Captain Briton, Elisa Bloodstone and Spitfire. Had the series continued, it would have incorporated Alan Davis's Clan Destine character and those from the short-lived Marvel UK line, such as the Knights of Pendragon. Despite a rabid cult following, the series failed to find mainstream success, and was cancelled after just five issues. (This solicitation is entirely from the Previews in my head.)
February 23, 2013 3:03 pm Are you saying that Red Robin is actually Nate Silver? That... explains a lot, actually.
February 21, 2013 2:24 pm And now we know what happens to the guys who lost chairs in the Marvel Shuffle. I expect that the next announcement will be Fred Van Lente on a Wonder Woman spinoff.
February 18, 2013 2:35 pm Willingham is a perfect example. I buy both Fables and Fairest (the latter of which included a gay fairy tale, for the record). I enjoy his writing. Heck, I enjoyed Elementals, way back when. Politically, I imagine that we disagree on just about everything. I suspect we wouldn't enjoy talking to each other very much. But I've loved Fables from the beginning. I don't have to agree with someone's politics to enjoy their art (a comment I've seen repeated over and over in this thread). I refuse to read Card's work or support him financially because of his *actions*, not his beliefs. Card sits on the board of the National Organization for Marriage, a hate group that actively works against same-sex marriage both practically (through "get out the vote" misinformation campaigns) and financially (pouring millions of dollars into elections in states where the members are not residents). It's like the dude on the airplane who slapped a crying baby and called it a racial slur. For the latter, the response ought to be: "you're a douche and I refuse to talk to you." For the former, he lost his job and will be going to jail. Beliefs vs. action. There is a difference. Do I think that losing my dollars will bankrupt Card? Of course not. He'll still be fabulously wealthy. But my home and my life will be the better because his art, the sale of which actively funds hate-based activism, isn't in it.
January 28, 2013 12:32 pm Why Jonathan Hickman book so hard? Why book make me work for plot? Why book not present answers to all questions after twenty pages? It totally unlike Hickman to set things up that will pay off in three years. Must answer questions NOW! Seriously, dude, stop reading Jonathan Hickman. He always does this. People had these same problems with Fantastic Four in the first year (if you don't believe me, go read the conveniently archived iFanboy reviews, including your own), before it all came together and they realized it was a heartbreaking work of staggering genius. Why are people still surprised? The castle is still there, little goldfish. Still there. Either sit back for the ride, or spend your dollars somewhere else. I hear that Rick Remender is good.
January 16, 2013 3:28 am Is this chest-bursters vs. Donald Westlake's anti-hero, drawn by Darwin Cooke? If not, why not?
November 28, 2012 1:07 pm Steve Rogers did well in the swimsuit competition, but Captain Luxembourg really earned it in the "being right about Scott Summers" portion.
November 20, 2012 12:13 pm Let's not forget this title when we're talking about "numbering in comics," huh? Not only is it high-numbered, but it has reinvented itself every few years. I remember reading it some time ago when it was an adventure tale about the Warriors Three, and loving it.
