wolverin-origins-acetate-cover-2To be completely honest, I am not sure how I felt about this book.  I think I really liked it for its simplistic look at Logan living in peace with a pack of wolves or maybe I hated it for its simplistic look at Logan living in peace living with a pack of wolves.  Maybe I loved it for letting the art dictate the story or maybe I hated it for letting the art…see what I am getting at?  Its tough because there is not much that happens in this book.  MAJOR SPOILER ALERT…

Logan lives with Wolves, Logan sees a Polar Bear, Polar Bear later kills Logan’s family of Wolves, Logan kills Polar Bear…dun, dun, dun…the end.

Hmmm. The climax to the story is…Logan kills a Polar Bear.  This is a character that we have seen do a lot of amazing things over the years.  He has battled with the craziest of the crazy, but a Polar Bear? Come on.  It was a good read and the art was amazing and not to mention the book itself cover and all is very cool.  Its the story on this one that had me a little ho hum.  Lets hope #2 goes a little further but I am nervous he might fight something really fierce, like a chipmunk or something.

Origins II will be on sale at Village Comics in Bedford NH on 12/24/13

 

amanda-conner-harley-quinn-1-promoOk, where to begin on this book?  Are you a fan of Harley Quinn?  You are?  Me too?  Whats your favorite part about Harley Quinn?  Ummm…Ummm… Ya me too, I really have nothing either, but hell, she looks good.  Thats what happens when you take a background character and give them their own book.  Harley Quinn #1 is cartoonish, boring and really just plain silly.  Harley Quinn inherits a piece of property that happens to have a circus like freakshow on the bottom floor. tenant and a roof deck.  I am not really sure what direction they are going with this book but Harley Quinn the landlord is really quite a lame approach to a book that should have had more potential.  The story follows Harley getting this place, learning about being a landlord and trying to find ways to pay for the taxes and upkeep (yes, taxes and upkeep).  She takes a job as a psychiatrist and as a roller derby queen at night.  This book was so disappointing on so many levels, but hey! She looks good!

Comicbookroundup.com gave Harley Quinn #1 an 8.6 (what are they smoking?)

Ghost_1_thumbGhost #1 introduces us to the title character who for all tense and purpose is dead and has the ability to remove demons from the bodies they possess.  This happens a couple times in the book and does not appear to be a pleasant experience for the possessed as they seem to wind up dead in the process of extraction.  I had not expectations for this book, in fact being that its a Dark Horse title, I had lower than no expectations.  This book really surprised me!  It had great art and a pretty cool concept and executed the story very well.  It left me wanting to read #2 and that does not happen so much anymore.  I don’t how people who have been fans of prior incarnations may feel about it, but for a newcomer to the series, I was pleasantly surprised!

Ghost #1 received a 7.2 on Comicbookroundup.com (seems low)

After reading my review of Doc Savage #1 and Justice League 3000 #1 you are probably thinking that I just enjoy giving books terrible reviews.  Let me assure you, you are 100% wrong.  There is no part of me that likes wasting valuable time reading books that are bad and having to share that with all of you.  Luckily for you and I Dead Body Road #1 was released this week and it makes up for the inadequacies of the previous two titles I mentioned.  Dead Body Road follows the story of a heist gone wrong, thieves trying to get revenge on those who may have caused the heist to go bad AND a rogue cop who is hunting them all down after his girlfriend, a police officer too, was killed during the heist.  Dead Body Road does what many comics can’t seem to get right, its a great mix of art, writing AND the book flows so well that it leaves you wanting #2 to come out right away.  It is so refreshing that Image can continue to put out great titles and you know why they can?  Its because they are not shackled to the same old characters and storylines from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s and 10’s.  I put all those numbers down to make a point, DC and Marvel have been trying to create something new out of the same cast of characters for almost 7 decades!  They must be doing something right because they have stayed in business all these years but for the fan who wants to read something new and fresh, it is getting increasingly hard if not impossible to do it with the big two publishers.  Like me, if you want original and different, Image has some of the best titles out there right now.
