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.
In this issue I talk about the Final Jack of Fables Vol 9 The End, Green Arrow Vol 2, Fables Cubs in Toyland, and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Vol3.
I made it!! I finished the Jack of Fables comics. It was a ruff ride at times but since there were only 9 issues I knew I could do it. Jack of Fables was a comic that was kind of all over the place. This last issue wraps up a lot of the story. The ending was unexpected to me though. It was just wrapped up super fast... meaning spoiler- they killed everyone off-. WHAT?? I don't know why I finished this series. Jack of Fables isn't that great so I would say skip it. It was like I just needed to finish it though. Someone pointed out that Jack Frost only has his eye patch on for the last half of the comic!! Well I didn't notice that but I supposed that's how you can really tell they were tired of writing this comic. It's just too bad Jack doesn't get to stay in the world of the original Fables comic. This comic gets 3 out of 5.
Green Arrow has really turned out to be a disappointing series, and I am only on volume 2. I didn't even finish it though I got pretty far. The story line is confusing, all over the place. The art is not my style at all.... I want to see Oliver Queen a little more manly and he looks boyish to me. There is this odd story. Ollie finds these triplets... or i should say they find him. He goes with them to where they abduct him... but then he escapes somehow. There is a huge monster bear ... then more girl stuff... his sidekicks don't know what to do because Ollie never keeps them informed... all of a sudden at the end of the book BOOM Hawkman. Umm... WHAT? I had so much hope for these comics because of the show Arrow and seeing Green Arrow in Smallville. Both are fun to see Green Arrow in so check those out instead of this comic series. 1 out of 5
I am getting so far in the Fables comic series. Almost finished with it. This issue was creepy. It was all about a dark and evil Toyland. The whole issue is dedicated to the cubs of Bigby and Snow White. Three parts of the prophecy that Ozma gave Ambrose have been fulfilled. We also get a little side story about the Fables back at Mr. Dark's (the boogieman) castle. That is the story I really want to read about hopefully we will see more in the next issue. I can't believe I have only 3 volumes left and then I will be done with the Fables series.
This counts for 12 comics towards my 2015 Graphic Novels Challenge!!
