Prisoner_of_the_Floating_World_TPB

After a month-and-a-half long break, Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for December, and the penultimate one for the year.

“For a change, this was a fairly good crop of stories, whether it is the always amazing Paul Dini’s Zatanna or the other supernatural of DCU with Dan DiDio’s Phantom Stranger, which turned out to be fairly decent, especially once J. M. DeMatteis stepped in for scripting duties. ” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files delivers a solid standalone graphic novel, whilst Brian Wood impresses with Mara. Over at Zenescope, Robyn Hood: Wanted is entertaining and fun whilst Corinna Beckho impresses with the first volume of the second Star Wars: Legacy series, set 138 years after the events of Star Wars: A New Hope.” ” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

X-Men #1 by Brian Wood – Double Review [Shadowhawk/Bane of Kings]

X-Men #1

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings review the first issue of a brand-new X-Men series for Marvel Comics’ Marvel NOW! relaunch.

“An awesome first issue for an all-star cast of X-Women, Brian Wood is on top form here. This is going to be on my pull list for sure.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“A simple, straightforward story that comes together organically and naturally, with no frills and gimmicks. I just found an X-Men comic I can get behind!” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 01.06.2013

Earth 2 Annual 2013

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for June.

Demon Reborn is a below-par Witchblade title from Dynamite that just fails to ever get going. Bill Willingham’s Fairest, a Fables spin-off, has a bit of a rough start but gets better with each issue. Geoff Johns’ Justice League of America continues to impress but still has a fair few flaws that prevent it from becoming a top title. And Brian Wood’s ongoing Star Wars is just superb with excellent characterisation and dialogue.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Batman: Earth 2 Annual #1 provides a misleading first outing for the new caped crusader while Nightwing impresses. Thanos Rising is comparable to Star Wars, and, Wolverine and the X-Men seems set to be one of the weirdest Marvel comics currently ongoing. ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
