I read a lot of comic books over the course of a week. Not just the stuff that I post reviews for, but also a lot of back issues. I figured I'd use this post to give a quick rundown of the other comics I've spent the past few days reading through.
-Justice 1-12: Magnificent artwork and an excellent story, up until the end, which really fell a bit flat for me. Everything just wrapped up WAY too neatly for my taste. For a score I'd go with a 9 out of 10.
-Son of Superman: This was a prestige format Elseworlds story about(what else?)the son of Superman and Lois Lane. Basic coming of age super-hero story stuff. Score: 7 1/2 out of 10.
-War of Kings: Ascension 1-4: A War of Kings x-over which starred one of my longtime favorite c-list heroes, Darkhawk. Good clean fun, although the massive overhaul of Darkhawk's origin did bother me a lot. Score: 7 1/2 out of 10.
-Green Arrow: Year One 1-6: This was Green Arrow's origin story and for lack of a better term, it was awesome. As a GA fan I was a bit hesitant going in, but this comic did a great job presenting Ollie's origin. Score: 9 1/2 out of 10.
-Batman War Crimes TPB: This trade detailed some of the aftermath to the Batman: War Games storyline which led to the "death" of Spoiler. It was OK, but I was definitely hoping for more from this one. Score: 7 out of 10.
-Batman/Ra's Al Ghul TPB: I'm currently in the middle of this trade, and I should have it finished up by the end of the night. It's a telling of Ra's Al Ghul's origin(some of it anyway)along a Batman story set in the present. So far it's alright, but not much more.
There you go. If I can find the time, I'd like to make this a weekly post, but every time I try to do a weekly post it never works out, so I definitely won't be making any promises!
