Chirpin’ Tuesday Reviews 3/2/11

5 Ronin #1 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Good start for this series, and since there are no powers for the characters, I loved the twist to Logan’s longevity in this issue!

Annhilators #1 (Marvel)
Aron: Huat’s art is much improved from “In Thy Name”, but I still don’t like it. The Rocket Raccoon feature has a 2000 AD feel to it. Very nice!

Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth #1 (Dark Horse)
Andy: I laughed my ass off. Seriously, I now have no ass.
Decapitated Dan: Ever hear a story that gets crazier and crazier as it goes along, but it’s told by a 5 year old? Yeah that’s Axe Cop. Funny, but IMO overdone.
Aron: Well…this is kinda interesting. A little bit.

Azrael #18 (DC)
Aron: So…was that it? I’m tired of Azrael books getting cancelled all the time. I’m mad at DC for the remainder of this Chirp.
NickZ: This series just got really good and now it’s over.

Batman Streets of Gotham #20 (DC)
NickZ: Great issue, loved the flashback story, plus Catwoman and Batman are always great together.

Brightest Day #21 (DC)
Aron: The way Martian Manhunter took care of D’Kay, has to be THE coolest thing I’ve seen him do. Ever.
NickZ: Another one bites the dust, it’s almost over!

Carbon Grey #1 (Image)
Decapitated Dan: Wow that was pretty, but the lettering irked me. Can’t wait for #2 though. This one looks solid!
Aron: The story was really kinda boring and confusing, but the visuals were outstanding!

Daken Dark Wolverine #6 (Marvel)
NickZ: It didn’t take long for Daken to make his move.

Deadpool #33.1 (Marvel)
NickZ: Was this issue supposed to attract new readers? It was just dumb.

Formic Wars: Burning Earth #2 (Marvel)
Andy: Hey, can the actual war start now? Where are the aliens?

G.I. Joe Infestation #1 (IDW)
Decapitated Dan: It’s officially past the halfway mark and Infestation is a dud. I didn’t even see what this had to do with zombies.
Aron: This one made my eyelids heavy and my head nod. *YAWN!*
Infinite Speech: Mike Raicht establishes some lesser known characters in this zombie event while Giovanni Timpano makes it all look good!

Green Lantern #63 (DC)
Aron: So… One billion years ago, Krona had Mar-Vell’s Quantum Bands and The Guardians weren’t midgets?
Infinite Speech: Krona went from a buff blue guy to a giant headed blue guy with a tiny body? Yeah I’d be pissed at the universe too!

Heroes for Hire #4 (Marvel)
Aron: This just took a turn down Weird Avenue.
Infinite Speech: Looks like Misty peeked behind the curtain and now there’s a gun in her face. I’m still having fun with this series from Abnett and Lanning.

House of Mystery #35 (Vertigo)
Aron: What an interesting wrap up to this story arc of House of THOOOM. And a good time was had!

Joe the Barbarian #8 (Vertigo)
Andy: The art is amazing…I want to say more, but I can’t remember much. Seriously: #7 came out before The Walking Dead premiered on TV. So its been awhile.

Lenore Vol. 2 #2 (Titan)
Decapitated Dan: I think I need that restraining order. I can not stay away from Lenore! Hahaha I missed you old friend.
Aron: Wow. Umm…this one is odd, but there is talk of poop and some peeing, so I laughed.

Sweet Tooth #19 (Vertigo)
Andy: An interlude story, shining light on the supporting cast. Love this book.
Aron: Three characters share what their lives used to be like. Jeff Lemire shares art duties for a change. A nice treat!

Thunderbolts #154 (Marvel)
Decapitated Dan: They build Man-Thing up to be a terror, and then BAM back down to nothing. Was hoping I would enjoy this one, but I was let down 🙁
Aron: This book is dead to me. DEAD! I’m too angry and hurt to Chirp anything else on it right now.

The Tick: New Series #8 (NEC)
Decapitated Dan: Isn’t it odd that a Tick is babysitting animals? Yuck Yuck Yuck, it was FUNNY PEOPLE!

Witchfinder: Lost and Gone Forever #2 (Dark Horse)
Aron: I sure do love lookin’ at me some John Severin art! The man is a LEGEND!

Wolverine The Best There Is #4 (Marvel)
NickZ: The most interesting issue of this series so far but that’s not saying much.

Wolverine Hercules Myths, Monsters & Mutants #1 (Marvel)
NickZ: Better than I thought it would be. I’ll stick around for the next issue.

X-Factor #216 (Marvel)
Andy: Shatterstar after Spidey just drops in on a rooftop: “…what was your web line attached to?” Spidey: “Passing cloud.” Peter David = $
Jeff: Emanuela Luppachino’s art is getting better and better each issue. Has a Dodson feel to it, which is great!
NickZ: Looks like the start of a great new arc. How long has Jameson been mayor of New York? I”m out of the loop.
