Review: Birthright #2

Birthright #2 CoverI have to admit that I was late (but only by a month) to the Comic Book Party that is Joshua Williamson’s brilliantly paced Birthright #1, a jaw-dropping childhood fantasy with more twists and turns than a dragon’s small intestine. While ish #1 was a perfect introduction to a book dealing with some pretty high concepts, issue #2 settles things down quite a bit, narrowing the focus on our hero’s journey, both before his Earthly return and after. While the shock factor of Birthright‘s first installment was missing in this ish, gaining some insight into the main character’s background, both past and present, was certainly necessary. The change in narrative, however, left plenty of room for some fantasy action, solidifying Birthright as a must-read fantasy adventure comic. Continue reading Review: Birthright #2

Jules: Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man #1

Taylor: She-Hulk #4

She-Hulk has been the most pleasant surprise of the year for me, and I’m looking forward to this new issue. With the promise of a showdown with Dr Doom, it’ll be interesting to see how Charles Soule keeps up his blend of super-heroics and legal intrigue. Should be fun!

Another week, another issue of Batman, but this time it’s not Eternal or vs. Bane, it’s the tour de force of art known as Detective Comics by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato.

Gaumer: The New 52 – Futures End #1

Yes this is just a really big What If? sort of book, yes it’s a weekly investment, and yes I wish they’d punctuate better (of maybe it’s a bunch of futures ending??), but the FCBD #0 issue of this series really got me going, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Batman Beyond travels back in the day to stop Brother Eye from putting the Borg on the entire DCU. This one is going to be fun!

Jesse: Nailbiter #1

Image Comics has been hitting the shelves really hard with number 1’s lately, and I couldn’t be happier about it. The publisher adores topics and stories that the Big 2 won’t touch with a 10-foot pole, and my pick this week is a testament to that fact. Serial killers solving crimes isn’t anything new, but when Scott Snyder says something is a great idea, you listen and listen hard.

Nailbiter 1

NAILBITER #1
story: JOSHUA WILLIAMSON
art / cover: MIKE HENDERSON
MAY 7 / 32 PAGES / FC / M / $2.99
JOSHUA WILLIAMSON & MIKE HENDERSON deliver a mystery that mixes Twin Peaks with the horror of Se7en!
Buckaroo, Oregon has given birth to sixteen of the vilest serial killers in the world. An obsessed FBI profiler investigating the town has suddenly gone missing, and now an NSA Agent must work with the notorious serial killer Edward “Nailbiter” Warren to find his friend and solve the mystery of “Where do serial killers come from?”
“If Josh died I wish he’d leave NAILBITER to me in his will so I could say it was my idea.” — Scott Snyder (SEVERED, Batman, American Vampire)
