Chirpin’ Tuesday Reviews 9/21/2011

All Nighter #4 (Image)
Jeff: Once again, David Hahn gives a twist that I didn’t see coming! I have no idea what to expect next!

Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #7 (Marvel)
Arnab: If this book wasn’t amazing, the wait wouldn’t be worth it. But this book is fantastic. Oh, and the Young Avengers should just get rid of Eli.
Jeff: Hey Matt Fraction…wanna know how to do a Marvel Event? Ask Allan Heinberg who’s doing one incognito in this book.
NickZ: This book is so awesome. The story is awesome. The art is awesome. It’s just AWESOME!

Batman #1 (DC)
Andrew: I’m not quiet hooked on this mystery they’re building, but the art was nice.
Arnab: Now that is how you start a new series. This book was amazing. Amazing story, amazing art, everything was perfectly in place.
Infinite Speech: Nice start though I’m a bit put off by some of the new artistic interpretations of some of Bat’s rogues gallery.
Jeff: So, am I supposed to think that Bruce is a full foot and half taller than Dick?
NickZ: The BEST of the DCnU books! Capullo’s art is great and Scott Snyder is a writing BEAST!!

Birds of Prey #1 (DC)
NickZ: An ok start to this book. I’ll stick around at least until we meet all the Birds.

Captain Atom #1 (DC)
Andrew: Meh…pretty unimpressive. Cool art, though.

Catwoman #1 (DC)
Andrew: Amazing! Guillem March has outdone himself! Simply brilliant art work!
Arnab: Well now, those first couple of pages was completely uncalled for. More importantly, what’s this nonsense about Selina not knowing who Batman is?
NickZ: Talk about a sex kitten! What happened to the Selina I knew and loved? This one is way too slutty and not knowing Bruce is Batman? Weak sauce DC, weak sauce!

Daredevil #4 (Marvel)
Andrew: Even with all the great DC books this week, DD is still my top read of the week. Waid and Martin are killing it!

The Darkness #93 (Top Cow)
Infinite Speech: Life would have been a lot easier for Jackie had he not turned 21. The Darkness is where you should be folks!

DC Universe Presents: Deadman #1 (DC)
Andrew: Deadman is a character you wanna keep a close eye on. This issue was fantastic.

Executive Assistant: Lotus #3 (Aspen)
Infinite Speech: Lotus is a BEAST! Great 3 issue mini series that you should be reading!

Fear Itself: Home Front #6 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: This series is something rare in the comic biz. It’s a tie in that matters.

Fear Itself: Uncanny X-Force #3 (Marvel)
Jeff: Deadpool reading the Bible and saying theological things is just great.
NickZ: Not even close to as good as the regular UXF book, but it was alright.

Generation Hope #11 (Marvel)
Arnab: Hope is not my favorite character, but man is she stuck with some jackass teammates, except for Gabriel and Teon that is.
NickZ: I’m starting to like Hope more and some of her teammates less. I hope she kicks their asses!

Green Lantern Corps #1 (DC)
Andrew: What’s up with all the 2814 GLs and they’re sudden urge for day jobs? JUST GO BE SUPERHEROES!!

Marvel Universe vs Wolverine #4 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Maberry brings it all home here and you’ll not be disappointed!

Nightwing #1 (DC)
Arnab: Decent start. It was nice seeing Dick interact with the Haly’s circus crew.
NickZ: A solid start to this book. I’m still not loving that he’s Nightwing again, but I’ll go with it.

Red Hood And The Outlaws #1 (DC)
Arnab: Aside from the the unnecessary swimming scenes, I enjoyed this book. Jason and Roy have been favorites and the work well together.
Infinite Speech: After the breakout the only thing that kept me awake was Rocafort’s great looking artwork
NickZ: So the new DC is all about T&A and turning all their heroines into whores? Interesting. hmm…

Supergirl #1 (DC)
NickZ: This book is off to a great start! I loved the little eater eggs, when Kara’s super-hearing kicked in.

Star Trek #1 (IDW)
Andrew: I was never a Star Trek fan. But if IDW keeps making Star Trek comics like this, then I’ll be hooked quick.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #2 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: The story has me 100% but the artwork is a bit off putting. Regardless, we get to see Splinter fight some ninja before he was doused in slime!

Ultimate Comics X-Men #1 (Marvel)
Jeff: That opening scene where Karen goes to visit the new mutant gave me chills.

Uncanny X-Men #543 (Marvel)
Arnab: I love Scott Summers. Is there some fan club I can join or something? Really though, he’s awesome.
Infinite Speech: What hurts worse than getting your face broken by an enchanted hammer? Getting dumped by your girlfriend.
Jeff: Cyclops threatening the mayor of SF? And now Colossus is Juggernaut? I think the X-Men have officially become the Brotherhood.
NickZ: So Colossus is Juggernaut and Cyclops is Magneto now? Ok, wow.

Wonder Woman #1 (DC)
Andrew: Brian Azzarello proves why he is the man. Has to be the best Wonder Woman in a long time.
NickZ: Someone is finally doing Wonder Woman right!! If this quality keeps up, Wonder Woman will be joining my pull list for the first time EVER!

X-Factor #225 (Marvel)
Arnab: If you were going to only read three X-books, this should be one of them. No joke. Rictor is an idiot, I don’t like Rahne, Team Shatterstar all the way.
Jeff: Leonard Kirk is channelling the old John Byrne. Good stuff here!
NickZ: Always one of the strongest X-books, Peter David does not disappoint. I wonder how many more times he can almost reveal Shatterstar and Longshot’s true relationship?

X-Men #18 (Marvel)
Arnab: It’s strange that this is an X-Men book featuring the FF, and yet they are the ones that need saving.
Jeff: Ugh. Why? This book is so bad. Make it stop.
NickZ: So it’s pretty much up to Dr. Doom and Magneto to save the X-Men and the FF! Who would have ever thought that sentence would someday be true?

X-Men Schism #4 (Marvel)
Arnab: Scott vs. Logan? Well now that is just awesome. While I understand Logan’s point, it doesn’t make sense at this point.
Jeff: My Lord, Alan Davis is still so good after all these years.
NickZ: 1) I don’t know where Wolverine has been for the past 40 some odd years, but kids risking their lives to protect a world that fears and hates them is what the X-Men have always been about. 2) Any fight between Cyclops and Wolverine is ALWAYS about Jean Grey.
