Comic Reviews for the Week of 12/24/13
Pick of the Week: Origin II #1 (Marvel Comics) Kieron Gillen Writer/Adam Kubert Art/Frank Martin Colors
The artwork and story are sweet from cover to cover! Love the perspective of Wolverine in the wilderness and cant wait for next months issue to see where this chapter in Wolverines history is headed. Kubert impresses as always but more so in this first installment, the line art is beautiful and complimented well with Frank Martins coloring chores.
Runner-Up: Avengers #24 (Marvel Comics) Jonathan Hickman Writer/Esad Ribic, Salvador Larroca, Mike Deodato & Butch Guice Art
The issue after the amazing Infinity tie-in throughout the Avengers line and the Marvel Universe does not fall short. Same quality writing and artwork and this issue is not only sure to keep the fan boys happy, but has future implications for the Avengers.
Also Hot: Forever Evil #4 (D.C. Comics), Justice League #26 (D.C. Comics)
Honorable Mention: Robotech/Voltron #1 Crossover (Dynamite Ent.) Big Robotech and Voltron fan and felt maybe this would of been a little better if Dynamite started with the on-going Robotech series before jumping into the cross over event. Only time will tell if that series will keep me faithfully following. All in all the art was pretty good and the story peaked my interest.
Not So Hot: Ditto...First off it's Christmas and there was no titles that made the naughty list anyway.
