Superman Vol. 3: Fury At World’s End by Scott Lobdell – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

SupermanVol3

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, turns his attention to the third Volume of the New 52 Superman series, entitled Fury at World’s End, penned by Scott Lobdell, featuring art by Kenneth Rocaforte this series is published by DC Comics, and collects the Superman sections of the “H’EL on Earth” crossover.

“What a disappointment. Whilst not being one of the worst graphic novels of the New 52 that I’ve read, Superman Vol. 3 is certainly down there, and despite some scenes of initial promise, Fury at World’s End is a wasted oppurtunity that suffers from Lobdell’s apparent need to make everything that he writes connect to another title as part of a crossover event.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Advance Review: Cemetery Girl Book 1: The Pretenders by Charlaine Harris & Christopher Golden – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

Cemetery Girl Vol. 1

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, writes an Advance Review of Cemetery Girl Book One, The Pretenders, written by Charlaine Harris and Christopher Golden, the first in the Cemetery Girl trilogy, illustrated by artist Don Kramer and published by Jo Fletcher Books. It’ll hit shelves on January 7.

“Jo Fletcher Books prove that they can do no wrong with their first graphic novel that they’ve published – Charlaine Harris and Christopher Golden help make this book stand out as an incredibly strong first entry to the trilogy. I’ll certainly be sticking around for more.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Shadowhawk takes a look at and talks about the top DC comics to watch out for in October, single issues and graphic novels alike.

Comics Round-up 02.08.2013

Before Watchmen Minutemen Silk Spectre

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

“The rebooted Aphrodite IX proves to be great while the first two issues of musician Max Bemis’ Polarity from Boom Studios manage to astound spectacularly. And back in superhero-land, Greg Pak’s first two issues of Batman/Superman disappoint like none other, even though Ray Fawkes’ Trinity War tie-in second issue of Pandora proves to be a spectacular issue.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“Before Watchmen manages to both excel and disappoint, whilst Scott Snyder excels in the Pre-New 52 era, and Green Hornet Year One is a much better origin story for the character than the recent film.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

03 Batman Death In The Family

Shadowhawk reviews the classic 4-issue arc (Batman #426-429) that marked the death of a key Bat-verse character.

“One of the most disappointing comics I’ve read to date, marked with a lack of emotional impact and too much filler.” ~The Founding Fields

Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files: Fool Moon Volume 2 by Mark Powers – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

Fool Moon Vol. 2

Bane of Kings writes a short review of the second volume of the graphic novel adaption of the second novel in Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, Fool Moon, adapted by Mark Powers. 

“An interesting graphic novel that brings the world of Dresden to life, but ultimately suffers from the fact that it is not Butcher who is doing the adaption.” ~The Founding Fields
