Shadowhawk takes a look at the top titles from DC to look out for in the holiday month.
Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for October.
“In an effort to read more Marvel, I picked up a bunch of new titles, plus one of the few ongoing series I’m following right now and have to say that the experience has been largely negative. Both the new Captain America and Spider-Man comics have proven to be duds with the first issue while the new Punisher comic was half-decent at a stretch.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
“Judge Dredd: Year One provides a great look into the early years of the character whilst the first volume of Grimm provides a nice adaption set in the world of the NBC series that you can enjoy whether or not you’re a fan.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the latest issue of Jeff Lemire’s Green Arrow run.
“Sometimes it so happens that all the popular acclaim for a series is understated. This is one of those times.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
“As usual, Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino continue to deliver on one of my favourite ongoing DC Comics, providing a perfect jumping on point for new readers that really gives you no excuse to miss out.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
Shadowhawk reviews the latest Star Wars novel, from long-time Star Wars scribe Troy Denning.
“One of the most exciting and fun novels about the Star Wars ‘Trinity’ of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa that I’ve read in a long time. An absolute must read.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk review the first issue of Greg Rucka and Michael Lark’s new creator-owned series from Image Comics.
“An excellent first issue; Greg Rucka’s Lazarus is something that you’ll want to keep an eye out for.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
“Violence. Introspection. Honour. Family. All in a handful of pages from Rucka and drawn beautifully by Lark. This is definitely a series to watch out for.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for June.
“One of these rare times when all these books were fairly impressive. Earth 2 is carving out a great niche for itself and doing some great things with the alternate setting, with Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray’s first Power Girl volume being no less exciting, if a little flawed. Over at Marvel, Mark Waid’s first Daredevil volume is urban action and Daredevil done near-perfectly, with Ed Brubaker’s Captain America: Winter Soldier Volume 1 being simply exceptional.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
“The Flash opens a new story arc in a fantastic way and Batwoman impresses in its own corner of the Bat-family, while Superior Spider-Man delivers on its promise yet again and Brian Michael Bendis proves that he’s much better at writing for the X-Men themselves than he is with events. If you’re not reading these books, you should be.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
Shadowhawk reviews one of Orbit’s latest debut novels.
“Edgy, fast-paced, innovative magic system, wonderfully realised dystopia and interesting gender dynamics help establish the debut as a decent one, but there is still ample room for development that should not be ignored.” ~Shadowhawk
