Geek Goggle Reviews: Booster Gold Futures End #1

Booster Gold returns with a one-shot tied in with the Futures End, 3D cover gimmick that DC is running this month. Dan Jurgens and an army of artists bring back the character that Jurgens created to plenty of familiar sites in this comic. While the comic feels like a scattershot at times the book reads fairly well as a man lost in time. If this is a teaser for Booster's own series I would say it works well. If you are fan of the character then this book is perfect for you, but if you are new to the character then you might find the book too limiting with background information. This is a good read.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Harley Quinn Futures End #1

Palmiotti, Conner & Hardin

Harley Quinn continues to be a fun read month-in and month-out. This particular issue participates in the 3D cover, Futures End gimmick, but certainly doesn't read like a gimmick. Even though the comic book is set five years in the future the book reads fairly timelessly, which is a huge plus. If you like Harley Quinn and how the monthly book has been doing then this comic book is for you. If you are curious about the premise of the event or the characters you may find the book a little far fetched. This is worth checking out.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Batman Futures End #1

DC Comics
Fawkes, Snyder & Aco

Batman, five years in the future, is an old and beaten man. True to form he is not willing to give up anything. This comic presents a Bruce Wayne that is no longer capable of being Batman but refuses to give in to anything in this book that mixes Batman with a perfect villain: AI Lex Luthor. I recommend checking this out.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Batgirl Futures End #1

DC Comics
Simone, Garron & Fajardo Jr

Gail Simone's run on Batgirl concludes in a very surprising and creative way with this comic book. The book is mostly set five years into the future and Simone makes the best of what little ground she has to cover in this issue. The story and the direction are surprising, but in a good way. The artwork has its high points but doesn't quite line up with the story in my opinion. I enjoyed this book and literally did not know what was coming next when I turned the page. This is a nice cap on Simone's run on this controversially rebooted character.

Geek Goggle Reviews: The Names #1

The Names #1The Names #1 of 8
Vertigo Comics (DC)
Milligan, Fernandez & Peter

The Names reads like a murder mystery. Well, we know the main character is forced to kill himself but his wife doesn’t and she is set out to find out why he committed suicide. The comic has a lot of moving parts to it and that is one of the better qualities in the book. This is a good start to what looks like a promising series.

Grayson Futures End #1Futures End: Grayson #1
DC Comics
King, Seeley & Mooney

The 3D covers are back! This year's line-wide gimmick involves DC's Futures End. These comics all feature a 3D cover and a fast-forward of five years for the involved character. DC tried this some years back with "One Year Later" and those books were rather oddly fit into the continuity because they spanned multiple issues. This is a bit more focused with just one issue. Futures End Grayson is one of the more conflicting reads I've had in a long time. On the one hand I loved the idea and the execution of the idea. However, the book has some extraordinary holes in it that make the book a mess. Generally I can't recommend this comic but it was so close to greatness you probably should pick it up and judge for yourself.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Superman #34

DC Comics
Johns, Romita Jr, Janson & Martin

Superman continues to be an entertaining read under Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. As the reader continues to get parallels drawn between Superman and Ulysses, as we find out about the background of Ulysses, this issue also introduces a villain. The comic is a dense read that comes in at twenty-four pages of story and definitely is entertaining. This is probably as close as it comes to a good, but classic, Superman read these days so I recommend checking it out.

Geek Goggle Reviews: The Multiversity #1

The Multiversity #1The Multiversity #1
DC Comics
Morrison, Reis, Prado & Ruffino

Multiversity is the Grant Morrison epic that has been discussed as in the works for more than a few years now. The idea is that all of DC's 52 universes have some kind of crossover or story that transcends them all. The concept is daunting for a new reader because it just sounds like it would require too much in the way of deep DC knowledge. However, the first issue manages to keep the focus on a couple of characters and doesn't quite dip into the level of what version of Earth they hail from or what their "normal" Earth counterpart's identity is. Generally speaking the comic book is accessible and is a very good read regardless of your DC knowledge. I recommend checking this out.
