I played a bit of catchup last week with my comic purchases. I was two issues behind on Marvel’s New Warriors, two issues behind of Hickman’s Image hit East of West, and 4 issues or so behind on the BOOM! Studios book Revelations, the off-the-radar hit from Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos. So, I didn’t really get many new books this week, and instead of throwing out 3 separate reviews, I figured some quick hits is enough to get the job done. And, besides: I’ve got some comics to read!
The first quick hit I have for you is Marvel’s All-New Ghost Rider by writer Felipe Smith and artist Tradd Moore, and it’s good. I mean, it’s crazy good! These relative newcomers have come on with a firestorm of fun story-telling, backed up by some amazing art. We get a lot more meat on the bone as far as the backstory of all the characters is concerned, which is nice in a book with an entirely new cast. But it’s Tradd Moore’s art that shines on this title, and this issue is no different, with the speed of race cars, and the Spirit of Vengeance, flying from each and every panel in beautiful strokes of brilliance. I was hoping ish #2 of this title would keep up the same pace as ish 1, and I was not disappointed at all.

Next we have the next big thing from DC Comics, Batman Eternal #1. This new weekly title is promising a new and exciting story about the Batman, and I just didn’t see it in this first issue. Now, normally, that’s a really big problem, and it still remains one here, but with the weekly release schedule, the build up for this was bound to be slow. The usual Bat-Suspects are here – Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Ray Fawkes, among others – and the team of writers is hopefully going to go to some amazing places in this title, but the places this first ish went seemed way too familiar and, may I say, boring to the jaded Batfan. A big weekly investment needs to take me on a roller coaster ride that I just don’t want to stop riding, and this felt more like the first act to an episode of CSI: Batman (a two-parter with N.C.I.S. Bat-Family). Jason Fabok’s art is the one shining facet of this dull gem that I’m sure will get a nice spit-polish within a week or two. It gets a point or two overall for the potential.

Finally this week, I have All-New X-Factor #6, and Peter David’s slow burn to getting the team together has finally come to its ashes. While the book’s been entertaining up to this point, the crawl to the already solicited final line-up of this team has been a grind. As much as I love David’s character interactions, the title has been more than a bit boring in places, but that’s mirrored with great moments of exciting adventure, and this ish is no different. Things go from exciting character action to boring and often cheesy character dialogues almost from page to page. Things are looking up, however, because the team has been rounded out, and it’s one of the most dynamic in all of the X-Books. Polaris, Gambit, Quicksilver, Danger, Cypher, and Warlock. Things are looking bright, but they aren’t quite there yet. Carmine Di Giandomenico’s work on art is great. He’s consistent, has a style all his own, and he just works well on this book. Top grades for a good story; bad marks for a few yawns.
