Comic Reviews for the Week of 10/9/13
Pick of the Week: Infinity #4 of 6 (Marvel Comics) Jonathan Hickman Writer/Jerome Opena & Dustin Weaver Art/Adam Kubert Cover
So happy that Marvel has finally done a space opera that shines bright as a super nova. They hit it right on the spot with this series, this is actually one of those events I have been waiting years for and it does not disappoint. I am one of those people that just can not get enough of Thanos, it is about time he has made an appearance since the last time was a few years ago. My only gripe and it is a minor one...Where is the Silver Surfer???? In fact this book has an all star cast of who's who and there is a character for everyone to want to follow through the course of the story. The art is lovely and pleasing to the eye by Weaver & Opena and Adam Kubert graces us with this awesome cover. If you love super heroes and villains throwing down in outer space and on alien worlds this is the book for you.
Runner-Up: Star Wars #10 (Dark Horse Comics) Brian Wood Writer/Carlos D'Anda Art/Hugh Fleming Cover
This sure was a sci-fi themed week with Star Wars taking the second honors of the week. Not much to say, if you been locked in a room or hiding under a rock for the last 4 decades then you get a pass. Wood's writing captures the magic only the original trilogy could provide and D'Anda's art work is some of the best Star Wars art to date and fits this book quite nicely.
Also Hot: Superman/Wonder Women #1 (D.C. Comics), Archer & Armstrong #14 (Valiant Ent.), Eternal Warrior #2 (Valiant Ent.)
Honorable Mention: Batman #24 Zero Year (D.C. Comics), Green Lantern Corps #24 Lights Out Pt.2 (D.C. Comics), Uncanny X-Force #12 (Marvel Comics), X-Men #6 Battle of the Atom Chapter 7 (Marvel Comics), The Walking Dead #115 (Image Comics), G.I. Joe Special Missions #8 (IDW Publishing), The Transformers Robots In Disguise #21 Dark Cybertron Prelude (IDW Publishing)
Not So Much: Everyone got a pass cause on New York Comic Con this week and I may have to see someone. Just kidding, nothing was intolerable, X-Men #6 almost made this list but revived itself in the last few pages.
