Comics Round-up 15.04.2013

G.I.Joe Vol.1 IDW

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

“Taking a step back in time from JMS’ Odyssey Vol.1 to read the first post-Infinite Crisis Wonder Woman title proved to be a wise choice, as did going back to IDW’s first reboot of the G.I.Joe franchise. The new version of Spider-man arch-villain Venom proved to be a major disappointment and Zenescope’s first collected volume of their fairy tale reimaginings ended up being more promising than I’d expected.” ~Shadowhawk

A mixed bag from DC with Jeff Lemire’s Green Arrow being spectacular but the first volume of All Star Western falling well short. On the other hand, Marvel hits it out of the park with a superb opening start to the adventures of Miles Morales, the new Ultimate Comics Spider-man.” ~Bane of Kings

Locke & Key Vol.1 by Joe Hill – Graphic Novel Review [Shadowhawk]

21 Locke & Key Lovecraft

“I never realised that I could love a horror comic so much, or that I would be so damn creeped out by it. This is fantastic stuff.” ~The Founding Fields

“Autobots versus Decepticons at its best, yet it somehow still leaves you wanting more.” – The Founding Fields

Archer and Armstrong Vol.1 by Fred van Lente – Graphic Novel Review [Shadowhawk]

02 Archer Armstrong Vol. 1

Shadowhawk reviews the first volume of the rebooted Archer and Armstrong series from Valiant Comics.

“A surprise hit full of uniqueness and modern-day relevance to religious politics, this is an absolute must read because of its mythic storyline reminiscent of an Indiana Jones movie and a duo of awesome, misfit characters.” ~The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 01.04.2013


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

“After reading the first half of JMS’ run on Wonder Woman, I sincerely wish that it was him writing the current ongoing, rather than Azzarello. Bill Willingham delivers an absolute scorcher on Fables Vol.1, even as Snyder’s Batman ends on a rather tame note. Following Arvid Nelson’s excellent first two volumes, Robert Place Napton’s Dejah Thoris proves to be a disappointment, continuing a trend with the writer across the various John Carter titles.” ~Shadowhawk

“The flagship titles of Marvel Now! make some good, entertaining progress and DC’s Justice League is a strong but flawed series” ~Bane of Kings

Batman: A Death In The Family by Jim Starlin – Graphic Novel Review [Shadowhawk]

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
