Comics week in review

June 8, 2008

The title is a bit of a misnomer as I didn’t pick my comics up last week so two weeks will be amalgamated into one.

DAN DARE #6 (OF 7) Virgin Comics (2008)   /  New

This comic keeps getting better and better,Garth Writing is totally respectful of the Dan Dare Legacy and Garry Erskine’s art is truelly a joy to look at. This is like a boys own adventure with something for everyone that checks all the boxes. Long may it continue.

Teen Titans 59, This book just goes from strength to strength, Ties in nicely with the final crisis series and I really Enjoy Sean McKeevers writing. The art from Eddy Barrows is strong and crisp. Can’t wait for the next part.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Ok I was starting to go off this series. But like a true buffy episode there were laugh moments and also sad moment. Highlights were Draculas speech to the new blood and Dawn taking on Dawnzilla the mech (trust me you have to see it)

This is the fight that I was waiting for, It kinda worked, but as with most things marvel these days I felt let down. My pull list gets smaller and smaller with Marvel. And I think I see a fat zero coming up in the future. Which when you think about the talent on this comic is criminal. Alex Ross & Jim Krueger. This should have had the Invaders cleaning clock but strangely no. Tony and his team of nazi’s ( and cap calls them that) layeth the smack down. There was one genuine good bit ” And Ironman has been axed” I wish.

And they were the pick of the crop, others were average, stale, head scratching.

What hit the bin this week
