Hama & Padilla

The fourth issues into the revisiting of the old Marvel GI Joe run is a major improvement in this series and makes me think Hama still has a knack for writing these characters and putting them into interesting situations. GI Joe has infiltrated Cobra's base and their plan is revealed to the reader. Cobra's high command is scrambling to deal with the Joes in their base until they manage to capture one of the Joes in a shocking turn of events. The issue has action, surprises and a good plot. If only the hokey dialogue would go away we would have an amazing GI Joe title.

The latest issue of Walking Dead does two things that this series does better than anything else; Rick takes charge and a major confrontation occurs. This series generally builds up to an issue like this and when these issues drop they're usually fairly amazing. This is the case here. Rick and company moved into the community and while things within the new community have been stirring, a threat outside has also been looming for a number of issues now. While last issue seems to have put an end to the confrontations on the inside this issue deals with the problem coming from the outside. This was an excellent read.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Parker The Outfit HC

Cooke

Darwyn Cooke's second full adaptation of Donald Westlake's Parker series is as good as the first as it brings to life a much wider array of characters and uses a much broader artistic style to tell the story. The adaptation has some notable variations from the first novel, The Hunter, as it has a much less violent feel to and Cooke's artistic style changes manage to almost make light of some of the crime heists. All of this just makes The Outfit that much more unique and surprising to those that read The Hunter. The Outfit is a fantastic adaptation of one of the most interesting criminal characters over the last fifty years. The beauty is that you don't have to have had any previous exposure to pick this up and enjoy it.

The spin-off mini series about the Grant Morrison resurrected Silver Age characters starts off with a solid issue. Coming into the series there was enough information out there that pointed towards this being a fun book, complete with a British to American slang mapping in the back of the issue. After reading the first issue I think it is safe to say this is not only a fun read but it is also one with unique charm that brings together two distinct super hero cultures.

As Earth, as a whole, becomes aware of the sudden appearance of a planet in our solar system a couple of different factions begin to mobilize and plan for a defensive. Hulk's newly discovered son, Hiro-Kala, is riding in a fleet of ships towing a planet towards Earth to destroy it. It's not entirely clear how everyone on Earth understands this is an attack, but the gravitational pull resulting from the new planet is creating some weather issues. Banner knows better as one of his other kids, Skaar, lets him know that there is this other son out there and he is presumably out to kill him, if not everyone. This issue significantly picks the story up and the action. This was a solid read.

The confrontation that has been building for a few years finally occurs in this issue. Armed with the knowledge of how Annie aka Starlight got herself into the "Seven", Hughie lets her have it. However, the issue offers more than a couple having a very angry and bitter argument. Butcher also plays a role in the mood that Hughie finds himself in just prior to the blowup. It's a very good issue and doesn't disappoint even in the slightest. When you consider this moment was inevitable from the beginning I would say living up to the build up means the comic earned its top billing. This was a very good issue to read.
