Chirpin’ Tuesday Reviews 8/3/2011

50 Girls 50 #3 (Image)
Andy: It’s rare a comic can make me chuckle, but there’s something about a sobbing lizard creature seeing space for the first time that’s amusing.

Batman: Gates of Gotham #4 (DC)
Andy: This has been a great story, getting into the origins of Gotham City…but when/why/how did Cassandra Cain become Black Bat?
NickZ: This story still continues to impress. I can’t wait to see how it ends.
Arnab: This issue continues what has been a fantastic story. Gotham’s history is becoming more and more real, and thus more and more dangerous.

Broken Pieces #0 (Aspen)
Andy: A cool enough concept, but still too early to tell much of anything else.

The Boys #57 (Dynamite)
Andy: I’m STILL eagerly awaiting the showdown with the Seven. I hope Annie gets involved, and it’s nice to see her and Hughie reconciling.

Caligula #3 (Avatar)
Andy: Just when I thought things couldn’t get any more messed up in this book, the next issue will most likely be a blood bath. Nasty!

Fear Itself Wolverine #2 (Marvel)
NickZ: A good Wolverine tale, but I don’t think it really needs to be tied into Fear Itself.

Flashpoint #4 (DC)
Andy: You know what I hate about juice boxes? They never quench my thirst. Yep.
Arnab: The army of good superheroes continues to grow as the S!H!A!Z!A!M! family join in on the great battle
My goodness this is a great way to say goodbye to the old DC. Best “event” book since Identity Crisis.

Flashpoint: Batman: Knight of Vengeance #3 (DC)
Andy: The best Flashpoint tie-in. Risso’s imagery is striking.
Arnab: By far the best Flashpoint tie-in. To be honest, I’ve enjoyed this as much, if not more, than Flashpoint itself.
NickZ: What a tragic tale. I loved where they went in this book and what the final resolution was.

Flashpoint: Deathstroke: The Curse of the Ravager #3 (DC)
Andy: At least 3 credited artists worked on this mini-series. If this is a sign for how the DCn52 are going to go down, that’s bad.

Green Wake #5 (Image)
Andy: This is one series that requires a second reading now that the opening story arc is completed. The art roped me in, now I need to make sense of it all.

The Infinite #1 (Skybound)
Andy: I liked it. It has potential…but will it last?
NickZ: Not going to lie, I’m not a huge Liefeld fan, but I’m intrigued enough to hang around for issue two.

Iron Man 2.0 #7.1 (Marvel)
Andy: How long was Rhodey in the suit for? 5 pages? Marvel continues to whiff with the .1 line-up.

Moon Knight #4 (Marvel)
Andy: Wow, this may be the first time ever where I’ve read 4 issues of Moon Knight in a row and liked them all.

Rachel Rising #1 (Abstract Studio)
Andy: Dudes, pick this one up and give it to your lady friend. It may get her into comics. Also, was that Julie from Echo in the beginning?

Red Skull Incarnate #2 (Marvel)
Andy: Every Marvelite should pick this series up. It’s dark and evil, and his skull hasn’t even turned red yet.

Scalped #51 (Vertigo)
Andy: Wait a second- Red Crow has had a change of heart!? Shunka a turncoat? What the hell!?!?

Severed #1 (Image)
Andy: A slow build, but I think that’s the point. The art really fits the tone of the book and sets the mood. Looking forward to seeing how this one plays out.
Excellent first issue. Early 20th century America has never been more creepy.

S.H.I.E.L.D. #2 (Marvel)
Andy: Dustin Weaver has destroyed any hope I had of becoming a comic artist. That guy’s stuff is amazing.
Arnab: Jonathan Hickman and Dustin Weaver have yet to release an issue that hasn’t been absolutely fantastic.

Star Wars Dark Times #1 (Dark Horse)
Andy: Man, even a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, this statement rings true: never trust a hoe.

Superboy #10 (DC)
NickZ: This Superboy arc started out really great, but I’m kinda bored with it now.
Arnab: This issue barely even has Superboy in it.

Superman #714 (DC)
NickZ: GROUNDED IS FINALLY OVER!! YAY!! This is one book that definitely needed the reboot. Hope the next series is much improved.

Sweet Tooth #24 (Vertigo)
Andy: A weird, but cool, issue. I would love to own one of those dream sequence pages.

Wolverine #13 (Marvel)
Andy: I want to see what this guy’s got on Wolverine. Then I want to see Wolverine take him down.
Jeff: It’s nice to get the perspective of one of the million Hand ninja that Wolverine has killed.
NickZ: Jason Aaron is doing an awesome job on this book, I am dieing to see what the “shocking” ending will be.

X-Factor #223 (Marvel)
Andy: Emanuela Lupacchino’s art is sexy.
Jeff: Did someone order werewolves? Because they’re all here!
NickZ: So much is going on here with mythological creatures, wolf packs, and perhaps a soulless strong guy? Plus Peter David’s daughter watched all the Harry Potter movies! WTF!?!
Arnab: This wolf business is getting dangerous and what’s up with Layla?

X-23 #13 (Marvel)
NickZ: I don’t think the FF needed to be in this issue. This crossover doesn’t seem to fit with were this book has been going.
Arnab: Spiderman, while amusing, makes and unexpected appearance along with the rest of the FF team.
