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

Watchmen by Alan Moore – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

Watchmen

Bane of Kings reviews the fantastic, awe-inspiring superhero graphic-novel Watchmen, published by DC Comics and written by Alan Moore, with illustrations from Dave Gibbons, coloured by John Higgins and edited by Len Wein. This graphic novel also won a Hugo Award, and also spawned an awesome movie adaption of the same name.

“An epic superhero graphic novel that is not to be missed, and has something to offer for everyone, veteran graphic novel readers and newcomers alike. It’ll be really hard to top Watchmen.” ~The Founding Fields
