Starfire #4 – review

Starfire #4

Starfire-4-Cover

Another roller coaster week for Starfire.  This comic bounces around with fun and humor.  The art work is colorful and eye catching.   Kori is fighting along side a new hero called Atlee, who we met last issue.  This month we learn a little of Atlee’s backstory, she is from a “world within this word”, known as Strata, and has the ability to control the earth around her. Together Atlee and Starfire fight a Chida Monster.

As usual the Starfire comic is a fast paced thrill ride that doesn’t take itself too seriously.  This and Harley Quinn are a breathe of fresh air this week amongst the darker more serious DC titles.  I can see that it wouldn’t be to everyone’s taste but with some comics it’s nice to just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Star Trek Green Lantern: The Spectrum War #3 – review

Star Trek Green Lantern: The Spectrum Wars #3 (of 6)

STAR-TREK-GREEN-LANTERN-3-OF-6-REG-RACHEL-STOTT

This book makes me happy.  I love this crossover, I’m a huge trekkie and comic book fan so it’s great to see these two worlds come together.  The story so far..  Lantern rings have been found in the Star Trek universe they have attached themselves to Enterprise crew members and Federation adversaries.  Uhura has the pink ring, Chekov has blue and McCoy has indigo.  A Gorn has the red ring, a Romulan the orange and a Klingon has the Yellow.  Members of each of the lantern corps have been thrown into the Star Trek universe during a battle with Nekron. This comic is bright, vibrant and fun.  The story is half way through and I really don’t want it to end.

Batman #44 – review

Batman #44 – A Simple Case

batman-44-1-600x922

I have to admit, this wasn’t what I was expecting this week.  Rather than moving forward with the current storyline this book goes back in time to Post-Zero Year.  Bruce Wayne is finding his feet as Batman.  The book is dark and heavy but is beautifully written and the art work fits perfectly with the subject matter.  It’s a serious comment on today’s world and stands alone but also complements the current Batman story arc.   Batman struggles with the world around him and his possible role in adding to its problems.  I love this issue and will be reading it more than once.  Outstanding.

DC Comics This Week 9/9/2015

More Green Lantern  75 variant covers this week (GL75).  This might be the last week that I pick up Catwoman.  I’m not really enjoying it, one more week and if I’m not left wanting more at the end of the issue, I’ll cancel the pull.  I’m a huge Harley Quinn fan so I’m excited for the Road Trip Special this week.

Green Arrow #44 – review

 The start of a new storyline which revolves around the wolf that Oliver has adopted.  This issue is definitely dark and violent.  Oliver learns more about the wolf and its history.  I really like the pace of the story.  It stands out this week as being much darker than most of the other DC books that I am reading right now.  The Tarantula is introduced towards the end.   I love her costume and the artwork is great, I hope she sticks around for at least a few issues.

The Flash #43 – Review

IMG_0198 DIG062923_2._SX640_QL80_TTD_

I love the Killer Frost Bombshell cover but the best thing for me about this comic is the beautiful artwork that is inside. Each page is stunning and makes it a pleasure to read. The story really great too. Barry dad has escaped from prison and, ironically, he goes to The Flash for help protecting Barry from Eobard Thawne. Thawne is hunting The Flash, believing that he will destroy billions of lives. But Thawne won’t kill The Flash without first destroying his image. It’s going to be a long month waiting for the next issue.

DC Comics This Week 9/2/15

A light week for me. I only have 3 pulls out of the 13 comics released this week.  The second issue of Bombshells is out this week, I’m loving the concept and the artwork for this one.  There are some Green Lantern 75 variants out this week for several of the releases but I’m going to pass on those.
