Booster re-enacting Platoon!
JLI #7!(Jurgens. Lopresti. Ryan. Cox. Lanham!)
PREVIOUSLY IN JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONALWith the Signal Men defeated and Earth saved from certain annihilation, the members of Justice League International expected to bask in glory and appreciation. Such is not the case as a new threat, one far more dangerous than anyone dared suspect, emerges and attacks with dire results, forever altering the team and sending...
Damn that Arrow…
Green Arrow. Issue #7!(Nocenti. Talibao. Leigh. Porter. Horie!)
Green Arrow is one of my favourite comic book characters.
It’s such a simple idea, as the best ideas tend to be. Take Robin Hood, move him to the modern day, throw in alliteration, and presto – you have a classic superhero. There’s some people out there who think he’s a Batman rip-off, which seems a tad off. Batman has his roots in classic...
All is Darkseid!
There be spoilers below!
Justice League: Issue Six!(Johns. Lee. Williams)
PREVIOUSLY: Darkseid came, he saw, he…
… got his butt well and truly kicked by Aquaman and Wonder Woman in one of the coolest things I’ve ever read in a comic-book.
Prior to this point, I wasn’t entirely convinced with the new Justice League. It was a good read to be fair, it just never seemed to really be ‘popping’ off the page in the way you’d...
Don’t call her Aquawoman!
Aquaman #6!(Johns. Reis. Prado!)
Since I started reviewing comics here at MCM Buzz, I’ve read a lot of good and a fair few mediocre. Even given some positive reviews. Which makes this difficult, as this comic almost necessitates a complete overhaul of how I grade the material that I read and what criteria I use in terms of analysis.
I mean… it’s just ridiculous.
And by ridiculous, I mean...
Wonder Woman #6!
(Azzarello. Akins. Green!)
PREVIOUSLY: Wonder Woman has returned home to London… but leaving Paradise Island doesn’t mean leaving the gods behind, as two of the most powerful deities of the pantheon have come to town – and neither of them is leaving without being crowned King of the gods!
I can’t start this review off with anything other than a sigh.
When DC announced the reboot, I was hoping they’d...
Supergirl #6(Green. Johnson. Asrar!)
PREVIOUSLYSupergirl’s nightmare is finally over – she has left Earth and has somehow made it back to Argo City! But it’s not the home she remembers, and a deadly new adversary stands in her way.
The character of Supergirl has always had a difficult time. Both in terms of the stories and battles she faces, and the struggle writers/artists have of making her a teenager who skirts the...
Justice League International #6(Jurgens. Castiello. Acunzo.)
PREVIOUSLY… Earth was attacked by an Alien named Peraxxus. The UN set up a team to fight them led by a publicity hound named Booster Gold. The JLI kicked the monster’s ass!
One of the better ideas that DC came up with after Infinite Crisis was instilling Booster Gold with a character upgrade. Where once he was a pure joke character, Geoff Johns and Dan Jurgens...
90s Miramax Superhero Film!
Animal Man #6(Lemire. Leon. Foreman. Huet.)
PREVIOUSLY… well, this is a standalone issue. You just need to know Buddy Baker starred in a film once.
This comic ends.
There’s your main critique. Well, that and we don’t get to see the whole of the Animal Man film. Lost? 90% of this issue revolves around Jeff Lemire and his crack team of artists letting us see the film that Buddy Baker made years...
In September 2011, DC Comics used Flashpoint (a time-travel themed crossover starring The Flash) to segue into a company wide relaunch. Much like Barry Allen started and ended the Silver Age of comics, he ended the Modern Age and started a brand new and shiny Age for DC Comics. I’m going to go with the Postmodern age, given how the relaunch titles so far feel like they’re intentionally warping expectations of what did/did not happen previously.
