Chirpin’ Tuesday Reviews 06/14/17

Accell  #1 (Lion Forge)
Infinite Speech:
Accell has familiar elements but remains it’s own and is yet another hit from Lion Forge!

Action Comics #979 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. Really great art, and an okay continuation of the Superman Revenge Squad story. I’d like a bit more action.

All-New Wolverine #21 (Marvel)
NickZ: All of the Wolverines plus Deadpool go on a mass healing spree and it is “astonishing”!

American Gods #4 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech:
Shadow is going to need to start asking questions about all of this madness soon.

Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #11 (DC)
NickZ: Gus finally reveals his secret and after many twists and turns, the ending will excite you!

Black Panther & the Crew #3 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech:
T’Challa sings, flirts with Storm, and things blow up! Marvel cancelled this series way too soon.

Copperhead #14 (Image)
NickZ: Clara has never caught a break since becoming the sheriff, nevertheless she persists because that’s what badass women do!

Dark Days the Forge #1 (DC)
Infinite Speech: I had a good time with this one and a little more hyped for Metal now.
Martin: 5/5 stars. I didn’t expect to like this 1-off prequel so much. Tons of great callbacks to New 52 Bats, Crisis, etc.
NickZ: This is a lot to process but I am now very excited for Batman Metal! What an excellent way to kick of this big summer event!

Defenders #1 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech:
Dave Marquez and Justin Ponsor are one hell of an art team and the shining stars of this issue!

Detective #958 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. This is really more of a “team book” than “detective stories” but it is really working so far.

Flash #24 (DC)
Infinite Speech:
So it’s just a really bad month to be a Kid Flash isn’t it. Williamson has no chill this issue
Martin: 4/5 stars. Top-notch art as usual for this team, and it’s fun to see a Barry/Hal team-up. Reminds me of old school team-ups.

Gotham Academy Second Semester #10 (DC)
NickZ: Kyle proves he is the best boyfriend ever and Maps proves why she should totally be the next Robin!

Green Valley #9 (Image)
NickZ: An amazing sci-fi adventure with tons of action and heart! If you missed it, I highly recommend you pick up the trade!

Justice League of America #8 (DC)
Infinite Speech: Not having fun with this series and it’s gone on eight issues too long.
Martin: 3/5 stars. There’s nothing really “wrong” with this issue, but it certainly didn’t do much for me. Just “meh.”
NickZ: With such a diverse group of individuals, this book could be so amazing if the stories were character driven.

Legion of Superheroes/Bugs Bunny #1 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars A lot of fun. You can’t think about it too much. LoSH/Bugs doesn’t make sense, but who cares?

Martian Manhunter/Marvin the Marvin #1
Martin: 4/5 stars. The art really shines, but also Marvin’s characterization has more depth than expected.

Old Man Logan #25 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Maestro vs Old Man Logan and it’s drawn by Mike Deodato? I am definitely here for this!

Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern #5 (IDW/DC)
Infinite Speech: Am I wrong for wanting this to be a permanent thing?

Rai: The History of the Valiant Universe #1 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: A perfect jumping on point that teases so much but makes me sad that Gilad speaks of his brother Armstrong in the past tense.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #11 (DC)
NickZ: Dexter Soy killed it on this issue! That entire finale with Bizarro and Akila looked incredible!

Secret Empire #4 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech:
A lot of tea was spilled this issue and the kids are going to need therapy after hanging out with Black Widow.
NickZ: I think they just used a random mutant generator to pick the characters for this book and had them behave in any old fashion.

Secret Empire United #1 (Marvel)
NickZ: Ultron raining truth bombs on errybody! It’s crazy when HE is the voice of reason!

Supergirl #10 (DC)
Martin: 3/5 stars. The Supergirl/Batgirl team-up is great in concept, but the execution with too much goofy dialogue misses the mark.
Kara’s impulsiveness challenges Barbara’s methodical planning in the worst of possible environments.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #70 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: This was a brutal kick-ass issue even if they weren’t able to save Slash. All of this needs to be fixed soon.

Titans #12 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. Omen finally becomes interesting in this one, but I’m not sure I like what is happening with Wally.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #21 (Marvel)
NickZ: I’d totally buy a Koi Boi and Chipmunk Hunk spin-off especially if the Otopals showed up too!

Uncanny Avengers #24 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: This was a chaotic masterpiece and I’m down for keeping this creative team on till Johnny enjoys the smell of those Hulk farts. 
 The group tries to survive the dark dimension while the ladies have a disagreement on tactics.

Wonder Woman #24 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. A pretty intense, and touching, finale to the Godwatch story-arc, with plenty of seeds for future stories.
