Morrison & Murphy

Joe the Barbarian turns in another terrific issue as Morrison shows that his greatest idea in this particular series is his selection of an artist. The comic book has an interesting story, but the success of this issue, as was the case for the first issue, is the incredibly creative art. The story creates a setting that allows Sean Murphy to stretch his legs and bang out some amazing pages that are packed with details and all sorts of goodies. The artwork makes this an issue that is not to be missed.

Suspended Animation: SHAZAM! The Monster Society Of Evil

Suspended Animation Review

Shazam Monster Society Of Evil TPSHAZAM! The Monster Society Of Evil, published by DC Comics, 208 pages, $19.99.

Having just read Jeff Smith's Shazam: The Monster Society of Evil, from DC Comics, I can only imagine the backlash, had it truly been an all-ages tale, as has been broadly declared by so many. "Hey, I bought this book for my child! Where's the profanity?" "Wait a minute, DC, you forgot the inappropriate commentary on the snug nature of Captain Marvel's costume! Where's my first-grader supposed to pick up her awkward one-liners, now?"

Geek Goggle Reviews: Batman And Robin #8

Batman And Robin #8Batman and Robin #8
DC Comics
Morrison & Stewart

The mystery of the Batman body is solved in this comic book. The current Batman (Dick) has taken Bruce Wayne's body and dipped it into the Lazarus Pit in hopes of giving Batman a rebirth. When what rises from the pit isn't exactly what Dick has in mind we get a Batman versus Batman comic book. The story has some very good elements to it. It also has some confusing ones as well, such as the random inclusion of Batwoman. However, for the most part this is an action packed issue that gives a decent story behind it. It's not one of Morrison's best efforts but it is a good comic book nonetheless.

Aaron & Guera

The Gnawing arc comes to a conclusion in this issue and make no mistake everything does indeed change. This issue, perhaps more than any other in the series, is a game changer. Up to this point the story has dragged every character into some level of villainy and put each one on the antagonist side, even if briefly. However, in this issue the lines of good guy and bad guy get drawn and folks get killed off. At the end there is a new status quo. Sure some plot threads still exist that could blow things up in a different way, but this issue wraps up many plots that have been running for a couple of years. This is an excellent issue.

Johns, Mahnke & Alamy

The war of light sees plenty of action in this anniversary issue for the main Green Lantern title as Hal Jordan turns from Green Lantern to Parallax in order to combat the Spectre. The comic contains some fun dialogue among some of the new corps and has a decent little side story to the whole Blackest Night climax that this event should be reaching by now. The issue is definitely a fun read even if it seems to be cramming so much into one issue.

Vertigo (DC Comics)
Morrison & Murphy

Grant Morrison offers up a creator owned mini series that explores aspects of a lonely, outcast child that finds himself a figure in his own imagination when his blood sugar drops too low. It's a look at the feelings of someone who has no one else to turn to other than his toys as well as a look at how hallucinating can open doors in your mind that broaden the scope of reality. It's a very interesting concept that is sold well with very little dialogue in this opening chapter. However, it is the artwork that takes control of this story and makes it stand out and come alive.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Secret Six #17

DC Comics
Simone, Ostrander & Calafiore

Part two of the mini series that pits the Secret Six against the Suicide Squad versus the dead members hits the ground running. The comic wastes no time with matching up Secret Six and Suicide Squad members for a quick mix-up and then throwing the Black Lanterns counterparts on top of them. The comic book is a good read regardless of whether or not you've previously followed either one of the teams because the characters interactions reveal much of what you would need to know about the intricacies of their relationships and personalities.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Suicide Squad #67

Suicide Squad #67Suicide Squad #67
DC Comics
Simone, Ostrander & Calafiore

DC resurrected a bunch of cancelled titles this month in conjunction with Blackest Night. Suicide Squad was one of them and it has ties to the present because the Secret Six title has some overlap with that long since cancelled Suicide Squad series. This comic manages to bring the two sets of characters together in this issue very nicely. It takes readers who have been following the Secret Six title and carries along those plots while introducing the key cast from the Suicide Squad series. The only thing this issue is lacking is its involvement in the Blackest Night event, but this one-shot is really just the first issue of a three issue arc that continues in the Secret Six series. It's confusing in that way.
