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

Shadowhawk, Bane of Kings, Bellarius and Lord of the Night welcome you to the second comics round-up for March.

“Unusually, its all graphic novels this month for the most part and once again, the experience has been across the spectrum. The shining lights this month have been DC’s Huntress and Green lantern.” ~Shadowhawk

The Death of the Family is one of the greatest Batman tales ever written, and Paul Cornell’s Wolverine gets off to a solid start.” ~Bane of Kings

“Probably the only comic in which you want to see more people and less fire breathing lizards.” ~Bellarius

Hirano’s latest work is everything we’ve come to associate him with. Immensely gory violence, over-the-top in a good way characters and absurdly hilarious moments that abruptly switch back to unrelenting carnage. What fan of his would have it any other way??” ~Lord of the Night

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings bring to you the third installment of an entirely new reviews series for The Founding Fields.

“A mixed bag of titles this month, not as impressive as I thought they’d be.” ~Shadowhawk
