I 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 already reviewed.
This issue we talk about Green Arrow Vol 1 the Midas Touch, Birds of Prey Vol 4 The Cruelest Cut , Supergirl Vol 4 Out of the Past, and Fables Inherit the Wind Vol. 17.
First up this issue I finally get around to reading the Green Arrow New 52 series. I have been wanting to read this one for a while since I do watch the CW show Arrow. Which I just love. My library never did buy the first volume but they have all the other volumes so I finally was able to get a copy of The Midas Touch through the interlibrary loan. I liked the last have of the comic way more then the first half. At the beginning of the comic we have the Green Arrow facing off against a group of villains that I have no idea who they are. We are kind of just thrown into the Green Arrow world ... no introduction or anything. If I didn't already know who he was I would be so confused. These guys were like reality TV killers. Just not my thing and overly done. The second half of the book has Midas (a huge toxic being) and Blood Rose a ninja robot. This was a much more interesting story. When I first saw a picture of Blood Rose I thought maybe Katana was being thrown in the mix ... though clearly I was wrong. The artwork is amazing.. I did really enjoy looking at it. I do like Green Arrow's (Oliver Queen) new look. He has lost that Robin Hood blonde beard, though I will say that was like his signature look. 3.5 out of 5
Birds of Prey Volume 3 you would've realized that already). One of my favorite things about these comics is learning more about Black Canary because she is in the Arrow show on CW and I like to learn more about her original character. 4 out of 5
This counts for 8 comics towards my 2015 Graphic Novels Challenge!!
