Comics: Mini Rambles – February 19, 2014


Animal Man #28

1) Intense and powerful and a wonderful penultimate issue to this fantastic book.
2) Love getting to see Maxine really having a chance to shine.
3) I wish I had a father like Buddy Baker.

Loved. Continue reading

All New Invaders #1

1) As someone who isn’t familiar with the Invaders, I appreciated that this was a first issue that didn’t require any previous knowledge of the team.
2) I had expected to see more of the other members of the team. Starting with Jim Hammond was a good idea, but having the more well known members might have helped.
3) Sometimes the faces looked a little… weird.

Liked. Enough to stay on for issue 2 at least. Continue reading

2) Love the little details thrown in.
3) Fun, meta, and a perfect way to end IDW’s amazing run of Doctor Who stories.

LOVED. Continue reading

Liked. Continue reading

Daredevil #32

1) Somehow completely serious at the same time as utterly absurd.
2) It’s an issue that includes a bunch of characters I’ve never heard of, but that’s okay, because we’ll be given enough information to figure it out.
3) The back and forth between Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson is exactly what a discussion between two long time friends should sound like.

LOVE. Horrified to discover it will be ending at issue 36. Continue reading

Captain Marvel #15

How do you combine the aftermath of a mini-event (Enemy Within) with a big event (Infinity)? Just like this. You don’t take the easy way and say “this takes place before…” No, you tie in the heartbreaking finale of Enemy Within and make it work perfectly in the context of a giant space battle.
