Stormwatch #2

“The Dark Side-Part 2” (No Spoilers) Now I can tell Paul Cornell’s starting to have fun with this title. The opening page of this book alone is the most epic tongue-in-cheek moment I’ve ever seen! I also like the dysfunction between the team members. I know Cornell mentioned in interviews that we’ll be seeing the team falling apart. When you see how they treat each other it’s a wonder they ever came together in the first place.
Cornell also does good to answer some of the fanboy rants about the encounter with Martian Manhunter and Midnighter last issue. The great thing is, I think Cornell anticipated the reaction and quickly answers the issue that angered so many fans last issue. Continue reading

Wildcats #30

“Bad Medicine 4 of 4: In Practice” (No Spoilers)

– R.E.M.

I am completely serious when I say this song came on the radio when I was driving home from the comic shop after picking up this issue. You may not believe it but it is absolutely true. I couldn’t help but smile when it did. But that phrase perfectly describes how I felt about this issue. I think it was a great wrap-up issue not only to Wildcats as a series, but the Wildstorm Universe in general.

X-files/30 Days of Night #6

(No Spoilers)

Well, as much as I’ve been enjoying this series, I have to say the ending left me wanting a little bit. Niles and Jones did an incredible job of building up the story to this issue but I felt like we fell into a sprint to resolve everything in this issue when I wish we would’ve had at least two more issues to wrap it all up.

I think what happened is there were a lot of good ideas but not enough time to flesh them all out. I don’t want to spoil anything so I’ll just say there’s a storyline involving a prophecy that I thought was introduced at the perfect time. It was a great set-up and was the best twist in this story. However, there was a sub-plot with the character of French that I felt distracted from the prophecy plot. French’s story really came into play last issue and I was afraid that they’d wrap it up too quickly and that’s exactly what happened. This short-changed the prophecy story in my opinion which was the better of the two.
