Welcome to Chirpin’ Tuesday Reviews. Here you can find out what we here at thought of this past week’s books in 140 characters or less! Make sure to come back each week to see what we have to say about the latest comics!

28 Days Later #10 (BOOM!)
Decapitated Dan: I ♥ this book. It’s just always too short. I need more now!

The Amazing Spider-Man #630 (Marvel)
This title has been a roller coaster ride since #600, but this issue definitely shows promise.
Aron: Yessssssssssssss! He’sssssssss baaaack! Awesssssome!

Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine #1 (Marvel)
I’ll stick with it because Jason Aaron is writing it, but this issue wasn’t my favorite.
Almost didn’t get this, but heard good reviews. Kooky adventure with two awesome characters.

Batman & Robin #12 (DC)
Andrew: It’s exactly what I’ve been waiting for since issue #1. I can’t wait for #13!
Grant Morrison, you’re a goddamn genius.
Aron: This issue was AWESOME! Loved the reveal at the end! Also…Damian rules! I’d read a solo book. Robin IV, anyone?
Infinite Speech: Talia won’t be getting any Mother’s Day cards from Damian any time soon after what happens here!

Batman Confidential #44 (DC)
Meh. I really don’t care for Tom Mandrake’s art.

Black Bird vol. 4 (Viz Media)
Friend vs friend; Misao decides she wants to be Kyo’s partner, and protect him like he protects her, awww she’s growing a spine

Brightest Day #1 (DC)
Andrew: I’m really liking where this is going.
Things keep moving along at a fast pace…and who knew Aquaman could be kinda cool?
Well, I got my white ring! I also found out that not only is Aquaman lame, but he’s also bulletproof.
Infinite Speech: Stopping some pirates doesn’t make Aquaman a “badass” people, he’s getting way too much credit this early in the series

The Boys #42 (Dynamite)
Andy: The pressure keeps on building as something is going to explode soon!

Captain America/Black Panther: Flags of our Fathers #2 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Reggie Hudlin and Denys Cowan have come together to make what is shaping up to be a GREAT team up book!

Deadpool Corps #2 (Marvel)
I dunno…kinda blah. I may drop this title.

Echo #21 (Abstract Studio)
Andy: Things are picking up again nicely! A great indie title worth checking out, but begin at the beginning with vol. 1!

Heavy Metal: July 2010 (Heavy Metal)
Decapitated Dan: Easily one of the best issues this year. I loved every story.

Hellboy in Mexico (Dark Horse)
Decapitated Dan: That was a fun read, not deep in story but fun.

iZombie #1 (Vertigo)
Soooo weird and I loved every page! Such cool art, too!
Andy: Definitely worth the cover price. I’m interested but we’ll see where this goes…
Interesting. I’ll give it a chance for a little bit. Is it just me or is there an X-Statix character in every Allred book?
Infinite Speech: Never a huge an of Allred’s art but it fits perefectly here but is there a reason no one realizes that Gwen’s skin is violet? Oh and the issue is only a BUCK!
No reason not to pick this up. Mike Allred awesomeness for $1.00!!! Zombies, vampires, were-terriers, and ghosts. ‘Nuff said.

JSA All-Stars #6 (DC)
Andy: I want to like it because the art is so good, but it’s really hard to care about anything that’s going on in the story.

The Killer: Modus Vivendi #1 (Archaia)
Crime fiction at its finest. I’m eagerly awaiting the vol. 1 HC to come back in print!

The Many Loves of The Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Marvel)
Andy: For the die hard Spidey fans. To others it’ll come off as pure fluff.

Nemesis the Imposters #3 (DC)
Andy: Actually it’s not too bad. Unfortunately there’s just a lot more out there that’s better.

New Ultimates #2 (Marvel)
Andy: Absolutely beautiful artwork from Frank Cho. The story wasn’t too bad either.
Aron: Holy crap, dude! The Ultimate Universe has never held back or pulled punches. This one is full throttle!
Infinite Speech: Why does Thor get to go to Hell and still get it on with a hot chick? Nice story so far and Cho’s art doesn’t hurt either

Orc Stain #3 (Image)
Decapitated Dan: I don’t know why no one else is reading this. It is beyond great!

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Ant #2 (Marvel)
Things slowed down a bit but I still really liked it. Sci-fi fans should pick this one up.

Red Robin #12 (DC)
Just freakin’ awesome. Great finally. Funny dialogue.
Andy: Chris Yost, I’m going to miss you.

Second Coming Revalations: Hellbound #1 (Marvel)
Definitely not to be missed. Chris Yost goes back to what he does best!
Billy: Awesome first issue and it looks like the team in Limbo is in “hot” water. LoL
Infinite Speech: A rescue team has been put together but I don’t see these guys working out too well to save Illyana.
Let’s take 7 random X-Men and throw them into Limbo. Again. Good job.

Spawn #197 (Image)
Andy: FINALLY the pace picks up and the plot advances. Lets hope things keep moving in that direction.
Infinite Speech: Clown is one manipulative little SOB and that’s why we love him so much as he continues to make the new Hellspawn his accomplice

Spider-Man: Fever #2 (Marvel)
I’m really liking this wacky art by McCarthy.

Steath #1 (Top Cow)
Very cool premise. I’d like to see this story expanded on!

Superman: War of the Supermen #1 (DC)
…Holy crap…wtf just happened. Page 25 broke my heart.
Andy: This story is clearly catering to the hardcore Supes fans…I’m definitely not one of them.
Aron: For the first time in a VERY long time I can honestly say, “This Superman story is not retarded”.

Sweet Tooth #9 (Vertigo)
Andy: Holy balls this series is great. I hope you pick up vol. 1 tomorrow for just $9.99!
Decapitated Dan:
Addicting and fun! I just wish the art was more appealing.

Thor and the Warriors Four #2 (Marvel)
Billy: The fun and hijinx continue with Beta Ray Bill, AKA Thorsy.

Uncanny X-Men #524 (Marvel)
Wow, Beast is a total dick. Couldn’t he have waited until after the funeral to act like a little bitch?
Hey, there’s Iceman! It’s all HIS fault! If only he would have been there sooner…
Wolverine is about to go off the deep end folks. Hope better watch her back!
Decapitated Dan: Zzzzzzzz………… Seriously though this issue looks as bad as it reads.
Infinite Speech: Aside from more costume mistakes it’s a great issue as time is taken to bury their friend.
Someone tell Colossus it’s not appropriate to make Kitty a mixed CD immediately after a mission where his friend died. And smile about it.

Vengeance of the Moon Knight #8 (Marvel)
“My constipated clown-style will always beat your stinky diaper-style.” This issue was amazing! I tell you!

We Were There vol. 10 (Viz Media)
Flashback with Yano, when I really just want the story to move forward already.



  1. Billy

    The Moon Knight comment was the best. lol

  2. Anyone showing Aquaman any type of love needs to just hold on a minute becuase his wife put in more work stopping those pirates. All he did was talk to dead fish while she actually controlled the seas, oh and she was bullet proof as well lol
    I ended up dropping JSA All Stars and had a problem doing it because it looked so good lol
