Comics Round-up 16.07.2013

Death of Superman

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for July.

“In a recent full-on run with various DC titles, it has been quite a mixed bag, in a good way. Doomsday proved to be a technically great story that I mostly enjoyed while Milligan’s first arc on Justice League Dark had its great moments as well. The strongest title here is definitely Gail Simone’s breakout hit (as far as I am concerned) The Movement which continues from strength to strength.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

With Marvel, Young Avengers and Daredevil: Dark Nights both get off to an incredible start, while at DC, Snyder proves that he can write two-issue arcs as well as year-long epics, and Kyle Higgins gives Nightwing a fantastic new direction.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Immortal Iron Fist Volume 1

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

“My first experience with Greg Rucka proves to be a smash hit as he tells a really focused story about the most famous X-Men team member ever. Scott Beatty’s The Last Phantom is flawed but still tells quite a story. Geoff Johns concludes the Throne of Atlantis crossover and instantly launches into an even better series event with King of Atlantis which is full of startling revelations. Scott Snyder’s Batman progresses after the epic Death of the Family crossover with a small-focus 2-parter with a classic Batman villain and then launches into the series event Year Zero which is one of the best stories in the series to date. “~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Astonishing X-Men is a series that all X-fans should read, and The Immortal Iron Fist is another classic.~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

08 Daredevil

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

04 Batman Knightfall

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for May.

“The only disappointment this time around was Matt Fraction’s first arc for The Mighty Thor. Batman: Knightfall Volume 1 was simply amazing in terms of its deep-seated psychological impact while Fables Volume 2 was the perfect successor to the first volume, and G.I.Joe: Cobra Volume 2 continued to impress with its character exploration of Chuckles.” ~Shadowhawk

Action Comics #19 sees Andy Diggle’s short run go out with a bang, Jeff Lemire establishes Green Arrow as one of the best of the New 52, while Jeph Leob delivers another strong issue of Nova and All New X-Men remains one of the best currently ongoing Marvel Now! comics.” ~Bane of Kings

Comics Round-up 01.05.2013


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

“After the excellent Rebirth, No Fear sadly fails fails to stir any interest. IDW,s G.I.Joe reboot goes full steam ahead with Chuck Dixon’s second G.I.Joe volume while Mike Costa and Christos Gage turn out an absolute cracker with the first volume of Cobra. And against all expectations, the Captain Marvel reboot disappoints spectacularly.” ~Shadowhawk

Aquaman is consistent whilst Justice League falters, and Superior Spider-man has a really strong opening four issues.” ” ~Bane of Kings
