Comic Reviews for the Week of 11/6/13

Pick of the Week: Earth 2 #17 (D.C. Comics) Tom Taylor Writer/Nicola Scott Pencils/Trevor Scott Inks

     So all in all it was a pretty damn good week and a bang for your buck. So Earth 2 has had the top honors in the past and has been a great read since the first issue, all I have heard through chatter was will the story remain and good with a new writer on board??? Well Tom Taylor carries over and continues what I believe is one of D.C.'s best titles and does a outstanding job. I was not only hppy with this issue, I can not wait for the next one. Thirty or so days seems like such a long way off. Scoot and Scott perform brilliantly as they have in the past on this book with great art.

Runner-Up: Batman Superman #5 (D.C. Comics) Greg Pak Writer/Brett Booth Pencils/Norm Rapmund Inks

     So D.C. has captured the top two books this week after Marvel has had a good run. Was I worried for a second when I knew Brett Booth was filling in to give Jae Lee a break to start the next story arc? No not at all. I have been following Booth and Rapmund since there Image days, I would kill for a Booth and Rapmund Backlach re-launch over at D.C.. Greg Pak, what to say, Marvel and D.C. it does not matter. He always serves up stories to get the reader involved and keep reading. Great talent on this book all around!
