Batman #25 (DC) Writer: Scott Snyder, Artist: Greg Capullo.
|I love the colors used here.|
If you are not reading Batman, then you are missing out on the best New 52 title.
I give this issue a 8.8 out of 10
Justice League of America #9 (DC) Writer: Matt Kindt, Artist: Tom Derenick
JLA #9 continues to follow Martian Manhunter and Star Girl as they explore the twisted mental prison that has imprisoned the other league members. Those that are bought into the Forever Evil storyline (like myself) will find this issue interesting as it explores the insecurities of the different league members. For those that are fans of Kindt's characterization of Martian Manhunter will particularly love the last few pages of this issue as it touches on Manhunter's weakness to fire and how is a result of Manhunter's self-inflicted guilt.
The original solicitation indicated that Manhke was on pencils but was switched with Tom Derenick's. While Derenick's pencil work was adequate, I am a large fan of Manhke's work (especially his version of Manhunter) and think that it would help elevate the series. Kindt's writing was solid and enjoyable for those following Forever Evil.
For recommend for fans of Forever Evil, Martian Manhunter, and Matt Kindt.
I give this issue a 7 out of 10.
Unity #1 (Valiant) Writer: Matt Kindt, Artist: Doug Braithwaite
This was my favorite issue of the week by far. It was engaging, interesting, action pack, and left me with a good amount of mystery and suspense. I am becoming a bigger fan of the Valiant Universe every month and this is a great time to jump on (there is a chart on the inside of the cover that gives an explanation of XO-Manowar up to this point which sets the stage for the comic).
|XO being a badass.|
I highly recommend for fans of Kindt, the Valiant Universe, or those wanting to know why so many love Valiant and it's characters.
I easily give this issue a 9 out of 10.
