read a lot of comics and rarely review them here on the blog. That's
because I really don't have a lot to say for an entire post. So I
thought I would review several comics on one post. I will still review
graphic novels on their own now and then, but this is where I will talk
about super-hero type comics (DC/Marvel) or sequels to some that I have
This issue I discuss The Flash Vol 3 Gorilla Warfare
, Suicide Squad Vol 2 Basilisk Rising
, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Volume 1 DC
, and finally Fables Witches Vol. 14
I don't know why I am still reading The Flash comics. I just don't enjoy them that much. I can't stand Gorilla Grodd's plot line (the villain). I just don't care for it at all... it is like a chore to get through. I have always thought that the illustrations in the Flash comics is neat though. I like how the words are spelled out in big letters with illustrations inside them. The illustrations also do a good job of making people inside the comic look like they really are moving fast. The end of this volume did get a little better. I am hoping that Grodd is now out of the comic and we don't have to read about him anymore. 2 out of 5
I have been reading the Suicide Squad series since I really enjoy the Harley Quinn story line. She is barely in this one though and that was disappointing. This book has the team learning that there is a traitor among them. There is a crossover here with The Resurrection Man comic which my library doesn't have, not that I had planned on reading it anyways. We do get to learn more about Amanda Waller and why she began the Suicide Squad, which I found interesting. I just hope that the next volume has more Harley Quinn in it. 3 out of 5
When I heard that there was a comic for He-Man and the Masters of the Universe by DC I was floored. I love He-Man and She-Ra. Always have. So I couldn't wait to get my hands on this comic. I was able to find it at my library too. I really enjoyed it. Most of the comic is about He-Man trying to get his memory back. Skeletor stole it from him and his crew. He man did act a little goofy and some of the things he said in the comic was hilarious. I do wish we could've seen more of Adam as He-Man but that doesn't happen till the end of the comic. So I am sure in the next volume he will take more of his He-Man role. It will be super fun if She-Ra enters the comics at some point too. 5 out of 5
I love the Fables comic series. Now this is some good stuff! I had put it aside and starting reading the spinoff Jack of Fables because I thought I needed to read that series to get what is going on in the Fables series since they did have a cross-over in volume 13. But Jack's series isn't that good to me. So I picked Fables back up and am glad I did. I loved this volume. It's all about the witches, which finally progresses the main story line. I loved seeing Bufkin the flying monkey take charge in this issue and become the badass he really is. Seriously if you are looking for a great comic book series, maybe have never read one before, this is one to pick up. 5 out of 5
Well that's it for comics this time around... can't wait to read what comics come into the library next!!
I am now up to 50 books towards my Graphic Novel Reading Challenge!
Ah, He-Man... when I was a kid I don't think I knew anyone the same age as me who didn't enjoy the animated TV series. The comic you reviewed sounds cool. Seems like it has a modern twist to the storyline. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on it.ReplyDelete
Oh I need to grab both Suicide Squad (<3 Harley) and Fables - looks so good!ReplyDelete
Wow!!! Only two books away from making your goal in the Graphic Novel Challenge. That's awesome.ReplyDelete
Bummer about the Flash books, I have been anxious to read them. I am however excited to see DC do He-Man. I loved him as a child. I'm just worried that I might find it really goofy as an adult.
I always look forward to your comic Adventures posts.
Thank you!! He-man is really good... well to me it is. I have volume 2 sitting right here waiting for me to pick it up and begin it. The Flash books are ... well I don't know. It's just not a superhero I love, like Spiderman. Though in the new Xmen movie there is a character who is just like the Flash. It gave me hope for the new Flash series on CW.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to the Flash series. The costume looks a little goofy with all that leather look to it, but I hope it's good. I loved the campy one from the late 80's early 90's. I'm really excited for the flash movie whenever that happens. I heard Geoff Johns is writing the script for it. That should be amazing with the right actor.ReplyDelete
