    The issue captures both the feel of modern day psychological horror as well as 80s slasher horror without a single person slashed at the moment. Good heart and a wonderful set up to the bigger story in store.
    • Imcubillo

      This is an excellent throwback to the slasher films you referenced. Both the art and writing really captures that essence.

    Any high stakes battle with Bullseye involved tends to make any comic better, but this series has the extra advantage of just being good regardless. The rules of Jane’s new role in life continues to get established and...

      TOTALLY agreed!!! I really liked this book...it actually brought a tear tp my eyes at one point...not saying when because I do not want to spoil it.

    Braijin reviewed Reaver #3
    The vibe of a Fantsay version of DC’s Suicide Squad is more apparent than ever in this issue. It seems like something that the creative team has fully embraced and that is nothing but good for the book.
    • Imcubillo

      Awesome comparison to DC’s Suicide Squad, this has been a fun book with a ragtag team on what seems to be an impossible mission. Great catch. 

  • Braijin
    This book has officially changed my opinion of this series from something I knew that I could eventually really like to something that I actually do really like. The story threads that separately seem muddled come together...

      I went back and read this and you're right. There's an off-screen transfer of information somewhere. It's possible (?) in the distress call that information was sent by the Sundog that we don't see the extent of when Vess gets the message. It's also possible that Vess sent her name back, but in the confusion of getting a reply on a coded frequency that no one actually read the message until it was time to send a response back (otherwise the "whoever sent this" comments are reaaaaally weird one page before "Hi Vess, this is Grix").

    This is a book that would be still worth the price of admission if it did not have a single word written down due to how amazing and beautiful the art is. What’s even better thst the scripting is actually not too bad either,...

       This series and Sea of Stars are in a fierce battle for best coloring this year. 

  • Braijin
    I’m a sucker for self contained crime stories, and this one did not disappoint. I feel, however, that one appearance at the end would confuse those who don’t read the series regularly as well as Selina's recent relationship...
    • CamiloxRangel

      Yeah, what's going on? I just assumed that her and Lois Lane usually just avoid each other. Eh, didn't really put too much thought into it but I do agree about self-contained crime stories especially when they start from the aftermath of it all and lead you through all the events through different perspectives.

      I hate seeing the use of cellphones in comics though. I don't know how to deal with it. Bleh!

  • Braijin
    The regular series is a home for some great sci-fi superhero nonsense, and the annual proves to be that way as well. I felt, however, that there was something missing in this issue, and it wasn’t as charming as the rest...

      I'm consistently 1 star less than yours. remarkably so actually. I go by the associated words: hated it, didn't like it, liked it, really liked it, loved it (1-5).
  • Another great retelling of iconic moments along with excellent backmatter.

      Did you continue with this series? I'm thinking of getting the trade on Wednesday
  • Braijin
    The road to darkness is also paved with good intentions as Tim Hunter is feeling negative repercussions for the bad decisions he has made. It’s also strange that this series and Punks Not Dead both have a paranormal detective...

      I’m struggling with this book. I want to like it and i kinda do, but it just doesn’t grab me like other Sandman Universe books.

    Braijin reviewed DIE #9
    A surprising and wonderful guest cameo helps build the lore of this strange new world. It’s wonderful when literary and comic book worlds collide.

      I still love the series, but each one leaves me asking what exactly is going on here. Does anyone else feel there is a huge gap in the story that never gets filled? Am the only one who just has a vague understanding of what is happening and the world they occupy?
  • Braijin
    Though there are some set perameters in every genre, what is actually considered part of that genre can be more subjective than one would normally believe. A horror movie for one person can be the scariest thing someone...

      Great review! I loved this first issue as well. And come to find out Matt Smith is going to be at the lcs I get this book from in a couple of weeks. Pretty excited to get my copy signed.

  • Braijin
    With the way the Industry is now, 35 years is a very long time for a single comic book series to be around let alone be written and drawn by the same person throughout its existence. So when a series like Usagi Yojimbo hits...

    Braijin reviewed Rumble #17
    this legendary team-up lives up to all the hype, as the creators of Rumble and Head Lopper bring an amazing tale that fits the lore of the these two great warriors perfectly. The final eight pages is a separate but fine...

      It's on my short list to read. I love the artwork. Whats better this or head lopper ?

  • Braijin
    This story arc seems like a great concept that is not being executed in the best manner. I ended up focusing on and critiquing the Bizarro-speak, feeling that the speech patterns did not properly convey the language and...

      Yeah I too am distracted heavily from Bizzaros language. Womp womp. This might be the first arc of The Terrifics I'm NOT digging.

  • Braijin
    Though not much happened here except world building, the issue definitely sets up a possible explosive ending in next week’s Powers of X. Also there are final set ups to the last big questions of the series like, who is...
    • Britishlass929
      My guess is that the Red King is Logan.
  • Braijin
    A great issue with some fantastic character moments from all four members of the team. One of the best story arcs from this series so far.
    • Jaylip88
      I agree. Even the alien romance thing is intriguing.
  • Braijin
    Snyder brings on the pain, but he also brings the JSA to modern times which hopefully means good things for the future of DC publications.

    Braijin reviewed X-Force #1
    Security on Krakoa is the big concern for this series, and while this was a fun and exciting first issue, I am hoping that this series does not make Krakoa feel like a constant battle field like the X-Mansion did on multiple...
  • Braijin
    The entire gang seems to be coming back for the final issues. The big question is if Aphra herself is going to survive until then.
  • Braijin
    Another great Dawn of X first issue that play perfect homage to the original New Mutant series while being something new all together. Plus the art has heavy Sienkiewicz vibes to it.
