Comic Reviews for the Week of 2/26/14
Pick of the Week: Black Science #4 (Image Comics) Rick Remender Writer/Matteo Scalera & Dean White Art
I grew up listening to old time radio on the local radio station 95.5 FM WBAI on such shows as Golden Age of Radio, Mass Backwards and Hour of the Wolf all which at one time played old radio shows such as X-Minus One, The Shadow and so many other shows of yester-year. Other then Remender's Marvel/super hero work Black Science and Fear Agent remind me of this almost forgotten art form from a different time period. Here is the thing, his writing works today in the same way it would of over 70 years ago. The reason is he tells stories that are classics ad timeless, you take this and surround such a talent with great artists and you have a award winning comicbook writer in a nut shell!
Runner-Up: Guardians of the Galaxy #12 (Marvel Comics) Brian Michael Bendis Writer/Sara Pinchelli & Stuart Immonen Pencils
Yet again Guardians is one of the best books on the market month after month with Bendis writing and two of the brightest and upcoming stars in the business playing with there crayons...This is all that and a bag of bagel bits!!!
