Chirpin’ Tuesday Reviews 3/9/11

 

5 Ronin #2 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech:
I already saw the movie 7 Samuraiso this issue really didn’t hold my interest.

Batgirl #19 (DC)
NickZ:
Looks like Batgirl is building a nice little supporting cast. Love The Grey Ghost.

Batman and Robin #21 (DC)
NickZ:
Wasn’t sure about this arc before, but damn is it getting good. This White Knight intrigues me.
Aron
: A VERY interesting angle on these crimes. But it needs more than just next issue to wrap it up, I would think. What of repercussions?
Arnab:
Gotham has a strange White Knight and the families of Arkham’s inmates are not safe.

Batman Incorporated #3 (DC)
NickZ:
Not gonna lie, this issue was boring.
Arnab:
Hmm. Well that was interesting, weird, but interesting.

Birds of Prey #10 (DC)
NickZ:
The way things ended with Calculator was really stupid. I did like the Bat-family meeting and Catwoman is always a plus in any story.
Aron
: This was kinda lame and the art was dumb. The end.
Arnab:
That was a pretty darn good conclusion. I can’t wait to see where Barbara goes from here.

B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth: Gods #3 (Dark Horse)
Aron
: My life isn’t any better for having read this. It’s not any worse, either.

Captain Swing and the Electrical Pirates of Cindery Island #3/#4 (Avatar)
Andy
: Loved it. From the art, to the story, to the overall execution- this is Steampunk at its absolute best.

Cinderella: Fables Are Forever #2 (Vertigo)
Andy
: I like the premise, but it’s really, really wordy.

Ghostbusters: Infestation #1 (IDW)
Aron
: Okay, this one was cool! Nasty, exploding zombies! SHEEEYEAH!
Infinite Speech:
My favorite out of all the #1s that came out for this series even though there was no Slimer in this issue!

Guarding The Globe #4 (Image)
NickZ:
This book is like Superfriends vs. the Legion of Doom, only better! Also the Guardian Gags with Obama, Spawn, Perry Hotter, Invincible & Rick Grimes are hilarious!

Incredible Hulks (Marvel)
Infinite Speech:
Hulk was penetrated in this issue. Quite disturbing. Thanks Pak!

iZombie #11 (Vertigo)
Jeff
: This book’s concept is so great, but the delivery has been lacking. Sorry, Mike Allred, but I’m dropping this one.
Aron
: iZombie is like a soap opera. Not always exciting, but always running.

Jennifer Blood #2 (Dynamite)
Aron
: I am loving this woman! This series is COOL with a capital B, for BADASS!

Justice League: Generation Lost #21 (DC)
Andy
: Erm…oooooookay. Glad this character is back, but…why kill him in the first place? I need a good reason.
NickZ:
You know that a superhero book is great when there is no action in it at all and yet it still keeps you entertained and wanting more.

New Avengers #10 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech:
If the two Avenger books had a fight this one would beat the hell out of the other!

Onslaught Unleashed #2 (Marvel)
Jeff
: Filipe Andrade’s art is so interesting to look at. Not sure if he’s a good match for a book like this, but I’m still enjoying it.
NickZ:
The first issue wasn’t a fluke, this book is good and what an ending.

Outsiders #37 (DC)
NickZ:
The Outsiders take on Doomsday! What more do I have to say.

Spawn #204 (Image)
Infinite Speech:
I want less Jim and more Spawn but I am liking the fact the books are coming out faster and on time.

Superboy #5 (DC)
NickZ:
It’s the event you’ve been waiting for, the First Superboy/Kid Flash Race!
Aron
: Oh, that rotten dog! Ha! And weird things are going on. I must read more of this Phantom Stranger. Where do I go?
Arnab:
Decent stuff. Who knew Krypto was so fast?

Venom #1 (Marvel)
Jeff
: Am I the only one who really digs Jack O’Lantern? Great to see him here as a rogue for Venom.
Aron
: This was pretty typical and ordinary until it got to the man inside the costume, at the end of the issue. I’ll read #2.
Infinite Speech:
So far, so good. Now let’s hope things get better because I actually like where this is going.

The Walking Dead #82 (Image)
Jeff
: The stuff between Carl and Morgan was just awesome. I wish every comic developed characters like Kirkman does in this book.
NickZ:
I love Andrea, there I said it. I had to put this issue in the freezer. (If you got that then you are Winning!)
Arnab:
Damn straight! Badass Michonne is back!

X-Men Legacy #246 (Marvel)
Jeff
: This is turning out to be a really great story. I love that the tables have turned and that everyone is after Legacy.
NickZ:
I don’t care what anyone says, Age of X is BADASS!!

X-23 #7 (Marvel)
NickZ:
Gambit and X are the new Wolverine and (place name of young X-Girl here).
