Scalped kicks off a new arc with this issue and it seems to introduce a very key character to the larger story. Up to this point the story has focused on Dash, his mother and the interactions on the reservation, both past and present. However, one central character was barely touched, Dash’s father. This issue seems to open the door for this character, but from the past.

Geek Goggle Reviews: X-Men Second Coming Revelations Blind Science #1

This tie-in for the Second Coming crossover deals primarily with the group known as the X-Club. This issue sits prior to Chapter Eight, which shipped last week. While it's not essential and is presented by a creative team not working on any other aspect of the crossover I found the story to be compelling and very entertaining. Not only did it play well into the science realm of the X-Men but it actually managed to give some twists and action for a story that is largely about scientists rather than the brawlers, like Wolverine.

Second Coming rolls along as Chapter Nine presents the X-Men's response to Bastion's endgame. The issue moves quickly, which in part is helped by the opening sequences being entirely visual. The story picks up the pace but as is the case with the previous issues the characterization feels off and the answers to the plot questions seem odd, if not forced. I have found much of the crossover to be simply okay and this issue falls into that category.

Chapter eight of the crossover, Second Coming, is another puzzling issue for this crossover. Previous issues of Uncanny and New Mutants have had bizarre character behavior and all of the issues seem to be light on a story that makes sense in terms of being one that has been building for two years. This issue only adds to that puzzlement. There are elements of the comic book that are very enjoyable, but the pieces that are strange help to bog down the issue and keep the crossover at a level that I’m not thrilled with.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Walking Dead #72

Rick and company adjust to the good life in this issue. For about twenty pages the comic book is mostly just regular old life. There’s a meet and greet party, a couple has an argument, there is some gossiping and a creep makes a pass at Andrea. It all sounds very boring in light of previous issues. However, the last two pages changed that opinion. This comic book successfully puts the protagonists in a position where they are the outsiders and are getting nudged towards the role of the antagonist. This was a pretty good comic book. It’s not one of the best of the series, but good nonetheless.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Muppet Snow White #1

The latest Muppet adaptation brings together the classic tale of Snow White with the crazy cast of the Muppets in spectacular fashion. The challenge was to broaden the familiar cast from what is normally seen in the movie so that more of the Muppets could see some page time. While this was accomplished fairly smoothly, the comic book excelled when making use of two characters that aren’t even in the movie. This adds a whole new dimension to the familiar story and making this feel more Muppet than Snow White. This was a great start to the mini series.

Clevinger, Wegener, Pattison & Powell

Atomic Robo faces off with his old nemesis, Doctor Dinosaur, in the latest issue. The return of Doctor Dinosaur doesn’t disappoint in any way, shape or form. The issue is loaded with outstanding banter between the two characters as Robo finds ways to poke holes in almost everything Doc has planned while Doc manages to annoy Robo with his constant stream of genius hidden in stupidity. This was simply a brilliant issue and may be my favorite of the entire Atomic Robo catalog.
