Chirpin’ Tuesday Reviews 09/06/17

Adventure Time #68 (Boom!)
NickZ: Oh my glob! It was a trap! This whole game was all a big trap! Not cool!

Animosity: The Rise #3 (After Shock)
Infinite Speech: Can’t stand a sell out in any story so I hope this one meets his end real soon.

Astonishing X-Men #3 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Love a good Shadow King vs Prof X story especially when it’s as crazy as this one!
NickZ: This game between Shadow King and Xavier is fascinating. I have no idea what Charles is playing at.

Astro City #47 (Vertigo)
Martin: 4/5 stars. I really like these 1-off origins about heroes shouldn’t work, but do. Ex-con merges with stolen Corgi dog? Win!

Bane Conquest #5 (DC)
NickZ: So is this Bane and Catwoman’s first meeting? Either way she made him look like a chump as usual!

Batman #30 (DC)
Arnab: If you’ve never heard of Kite Man, you’re probably not alone, but after you read this issue, you’ll certainly care about him.
Martin: 4/5 stars. It’s a great creative team that can make you care about a character like Kite Man. Hell yeah!
NickZ: “The Ballad of Kite Man” is one of the best dark comedies you will read. Hilarious and deeply tragic. Bravo!

Champions #12 (Marvel)
NickZ: A great issue that gives you an unfettered look at what it’s like to be Scott Summers.

Darth Vader #5 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: I’m still ticked at how they did Kirak but this is one intense journey for a lightsaber!

Deathstroke #23 (DC)
Infinite Speech: Christopher Priest is doing some amazing things on Deathstroke and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be reading this title!

Doom Patrol #8 (DC)
NickZ: I’ve heard of animal lovers but this is ridiculous!

Generation X #6 (Marvel)
NickZ: Quentin drags the boys into some of his usual shenanigans and ends up running into a blast from the X-Men’s past!

Green Arrow #30 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. The 9th circle excuse for matching Ollie w/ various JL heroes is a bit thin, but teaming him with Hal is fun.

Green Lanterns #30 (DC)
Martin: 3/5 stars. To me, the core of this book is the relationship between Simon & Jess, & that’s been missing for a few issues

Hawkeye #10 (Marvel)
NickZ: Madame Mask has gone too far making Kate look bad, well she looked good but bad!

Iceman #5 (Marvel)
Arnab: This issue, this series, this is everything Bobby Drake has ever deserved but wasn’t given until now.
NickZ: Such an emotionally powerful issue! I loved the way the action mirrored Bobby’s words in his letter.

Iron Fist #7 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Brisson should give us a proper Shang Chi vs Iron Fist issue now! This is shaping up to be some of the best Iron Fist we’ve seen in a while.

Journey to Star Wars the Last Jedi: Captain Phasma #1 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Phasma is implementing the number one rule of the Empire: CYA! (Cover Your Ass)
Martin: 4/5 stars. Intriguing look adding depth to a character that was under-utilized in Force Awakens. Solid art.

Justice League #28 (DC)
NickZ: Interesting developments that will likely lead to the League having to fight their own children.

Motor Crush #6 (Image)
Infinite Speech: I have no idea where Motor Crush is going but I’m here for the ride till the wheels fall off! Damn good series!

Nightwing #28 (DC)
NickZ: More Spyral crap and more Dick being a man whore!

Outcast #30 (Image)
NickZ: Just when things were starting to look up for Kyle and his pals, enter Rowland Tusk!

Postal #22 (Top Cow)
Infinite Speech: Hill and Goodhart are killing it with this series! Can’t wait to see how this confrontation plays out!
NickZ: Never underestimate Laura Shiffron, that “bitch” scares the shit out of people for good reason!

Predator: Hunters #5 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: What we got in this issue should have come sooner in the series but it was still a fun read. Predator fans will enjoy it.

Seven To Eternity #9 (Image)
NickZ: Every aspect of this book is incredible! A true masterpiece!

Spider-Man/ Deadpool #21 (Marvel)
NickZ: This might be the craziest Arcade has ever been and that’s saying something!

Spider-Man #20 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: This new arc starts off strong and I realize I missed Ganke’s shirts

Star Wars: Adventures #1 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: Get your little Star Wars fans started on this series now!

Superman #30 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. Feels a bit like a “filler” arc. Decent premise of Superman having to deal with fear, but he beats it too easily.
NickZ: The embodiments of hope and fear face off and it is good!

Venomverse #1 (Marvel)
NickZ: That Spidey-Venom was talking all kinds of mess about Eddie and looked what happened!

Venomverse War Stories #1 (Marvel)
NickZ: Lots of really fun stories in this one, my favorites were Black Panther Venom and Doctor Doom Venom!

The Walking Dead #171 (Image)
NickZ: The idea of pushing a new character on us like this is so damn gimmicky and yet, I can’t help but like her. Curse you Kirkman!

The Wicked + The Divine #31 (Image)
NickZ: If we’ve learned anything form this book it’s that gods are treacherous and deceitful!

The Woods #35 (Boom!)
NickZ: I am overrun with emotion as the final battle plays out. Please do not kill any of my faves!

X-Men Gold #11 (Marvel)
NickZ: This X-Men team sure does get their asses kicked an awful lot! Is kitty really this bad of a leader?
