Comic Reviews for the Week of 11/13/13
Pick of the Week: Savage Wolverine #11 (Marvel Comics) Writer & Artist Jock
One of my favorite solo Wolverine stories in a very long time. I was never the biggest fan of Jock, but now I have to go back and check out some of his former work. This 3 issue story will make any X-Men/Wolverine/Mutant fan happy as a pig in month. It also has the right mix and flare of Science Fiction Fantasy to get the juices and imagination going. Must get for any fan of the genre's!!!
Runer-Up: Unity #1 (Valiant Comics) Matt Kindt Writer/Doug Braithwaite Art
In 1992 Valiant was all the rage and I was knee deep in collecting there books. Back in the 90's, comics were all the rage and had a resurgence in print. Valiant came with a different vision on how comics were produced and a whole new take on heroes. Unity was there first major cross over event and the revamped Unity for the new generation does not fall short of the original. I almost feel this first issue of Unity is better then the original series. This coming right after the Harbinger Wars crossover which was splendid, Unity follows up hardcore with amazing words and art.
