Recent Comics I Have Read
Amazons Attack #1: Okay, this is cool. I got your War on Terror right here, pal!
Avengers (The Initiative) #2: Nazis? Tony Stark is now working with frickin' Nazis? Gah! Oh, and George W. Bush is evidently a super-hero. Who knew?
Detective Comics #832: Not much for the art, stiff as woodcuttings, but it's a mystery (albeit not much of a mystery, certainly nothing to compare with Hell-Mouths in daycare centers) and the Batman gets to solve it.
Ultimate Fantastic Four #41: Nice end to the Ultimate Diablo storyline, though I have to say, I'm seeing less and less to distinguish UFF from their counterparts. This could have been an original FF story with practically no changes. And if that's the case, then what's the point?
Green Arrow #74: A sweet story about Green Arrow and Black Canary and their on-again, off-again, on-again relationship built around some good fight scenes. I liked it.
Invincible #41: Back from space. Finally. And damn, but they like to kill off characters!
Justice Society of America #5: I'm with Kalinara; I like the new Sand(man) look. Alot. Plus, the idea that all of the villains in Arkham have the same nightmare, the Batman, is pretty cool.
Noble Causes #29: Still good. Art's better.
Powers #24: Please, please, oh, PLEASE, get Christian out of that moronic Millennium Guard outfit!
Ultimate Powers #5: Thor vs. Hyperion! Good stuff. Plus, everybody looks like a supermodel. Oh, light-board, is there nothing you can't do?
