Justice League United Annual #1 – Double Review [Bane of Kings/Shadowhawk]

Justice League United Annual 01

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the latest issue of DC’s Justice League United ongoing.

“The Legion of Superheroes return as Lemire pits them against the Justice League United in a way that’s bound to entertain.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“This reads unlike any Jeff Lemire comic I’ve read to date, and that’s not a good thing in this case.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Superman #32 – Friday Flash Review

Superman 032

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk tackle the first issue of the newest creative team on DC’s troubled top-tier comic, Superman.

An excellent new start to what should be a great book from a stellar creative team.” ~Bane of Kings

“Finally a Superman story that I can read without reservations and really get interested in.” ~Shadowhawk

Green Arrow #32 – Friday Flash Review

Green Arrow 32

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the latest issue of Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s stelar Green Arrow run.

This is an excellent jumping on point to DC’s best comic.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“Lemire and Sorrentino kick off a new phase in Oliver’s war against crime and it is spectacular.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Forever Evil #7 – Double Review [Bane of Kings/Shadowhawk]

Forever Evil 07

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk check out the final issue of DC’s biggest event series for the New 52.

A satisfactory conclusion to an event that didn’t get off to a good start.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“A disappointing and needlessly delayed conclusion to a disappointing event.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Aquaman, Vol. 4: Death of a King by Geoff Johns and Paul Pelletier – Comic Review [Bellarius]

Aquaman_Trade_Paperback_Vol_4

Bellarius dives back into DC Comics’ New 52 with a new volume of Geoff Johns’ Aquaman.

“With politics, betrayal, intrigue, magic and monsters, Johns delivers one of the best volumes since Peter David’s famed run.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Aquaman and The Others #1 – Friday Flash Review

Aquaman and the Others 01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the first issue of a new series that focuses on the Geoff Johns-created superhero team The Others.

“I remain unimpressed. But at least this was a better issue than Jurgens’ work on Superman for New 52.~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

It’s good to see Aquaman get a second ongoing series but Jurgens unfortunately can only deliver an average debut.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Justice League 3000 #3 – Friday Flash Review

Justice League 3000 03

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the newest issue of the latest Justice League book from DC Comics.

Justice League 3000 isn’t quite finding its groove yet after a promising start but it still continues to be fun and is far from the worst book on DC’s shelves right now.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“Loved that we got more insight into how this world of the future works, but the primary characters aren’t quite working for me. The charm is in the setting and not so much in the characters.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 02.02.2014

Red Sonja Vol.1 Queen of Plagues

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

“A mix of Marvel comics here, with All-New Invaders not being quite up to par but the latest chapter of Revolutionary War is indeed quite impressive. ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Scott Lobdell misfires yet again with Teen Titans, proving that this series is deserving of its cancellation whilst Gail Simone works wonders with the first Volume of  Red Sonja.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 15.01.2014

Batgirl v3 Vol.1

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up of the new year.

“Just one title for me this time, but it was a pretty good one, so that’s that. I’m getting into reading some older Batgirl comics and across three different trades, the experience has paid off. I think I’m developing into a fan of Bryan Q. Miller’s Batgirl with Stephanie Brown as the titular character.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Death of the Family hits Red Hood and the Outlaws and Nightwing in trade. Whilst Lobdell is able to make Red Hood one of the most relevant books to the crossover out of the entire Bat-family he’s unable to do Jason Todd justice. On the other hand, Kyle Higgins’ Nightwing story is the better of the two, but not the character’s best outing.~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Justice League 3000 #1 – Friday Flash Review

Justice League 3000 #1

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the newly-launched Justice League 3000 series from writers Keith Giffen and J. M. DeMatteis with art by Howard Porter.

Whilst it may not be what I was expecting, Justice League 3000 manages to be a delightful surprise – a strong storyline from Giffen and DeMatteis with some fantastic artwork from Howard Porter. Count me in for more.~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“Extremely quirky and unexpected. I am cautious about this one.~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
