Geek Goggle Reviews: Walking Dead #76

Brandon Borzelli's Geek Goggle Reviews

Walking Dead #76Walking Dead #76
Image Comics
Kirkman, Adlard & Rathburn

Based on the strength of the previous issue and surprise cliffhanger ending, this issue was bound to be a letdown. The last page of the previous issue had Michonne take Rick out from behind giving this issue such a boost from the start. Unfortunately the issue really doesn't have much in the way of escalating drama at all. While the story picks up right where it left off, cooler heads prevail and this issue actually ratchets things down. While still a good read it feels a little bit like a momentum killer and is not one of the best of this arc.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #1

Guy Gardner begins his secret mission in this, the launch, of a third monthly Green Lantern title. While much of the plot remains a mystery the issue does a good job of entertaining as Guy takes a couple of turns in the initial stages of his quest. For the most part this is a slow start to what seems like an important arc, but a good start to a series devoted to Guy. I liked the issue but I'm not sure how this will all play out and I'm also not sure how vital this series is towards following one or both of the other Green Lantern titles.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Incredible Hulk #611

Pak, Pelletier, Miki & D'Armata

The latest issue of the Incredible Hulk is the big payoff for a storyline that has been running for about a year now. The story is more than just the World War Hulks story that has been running through both Hulk titles for a few months now. Really, the story has been Banner's relationship with his son, Skaar, and this issue brings about a new status quo for them. It's a very loud and smashing issue that does manage to link up other character and historical elements to make the issue more than just some fighting. There is a lot to like in this issue but it does leave a tiny bit to be desired at the end.

Temperance is an award-winning, black-and-white graphic novel portraying one man's awakening within a dystopian society. Lester suffers from trauma-induced amnesia; his wife has struggled to keep him from remembering the truth about Blessedbowl, the society that considers him to be a hero. Blessedbowl keeps its citizens in a state of fear and falsehood, threatening them with the specter of war just outside its walls. But the ground beneath the illusions gradually gives way as Lester remembers more and more. Temperance is a story of awakening and transformation - physical, emotional, and spiritual. A profoundly empathetic reflection upon the systemic societal problems of culturally ingrained violence and brainwashing, Temperance is profound, meaningful, and deserves to be read and reread at length.
