REVIEW: Flash #239

Brandon Borzelli's Geek Goggle Reviews

Flash #239
DC Comics
Peyer & Williams II

The punishment that is the Flash continues. I asked for less of the kids and I get less of the kids, but instead I get more strange story telling, only this time with Jay Garrick. This issue isn’t terrible, in fact I liked most of it, but it doesn’t build on the new villain at all. Instead it slows down to involve Jay talking sense into Wally by picking a fight with his wife, bossing around his kids and then getting into a fistfight with him. I just can’t get my finger on this title’s pulse and it annoys me.

REVIEW: Superman #675

Superman #675
DC Comics
Busiek, Guedes, Correa & Magalhaes

Superman battles, not one, not two, but five villains in this issue. He eventually teams with one to take out the others. This issue weaves together the interesting characteristics of Superman with some good, old fashioned throwdowns. However, the real element of this story worth noting is it is the end of the line for the writer, Kurt Busiek, on Superman.

Green Lantern Corps #23
DC Comics
Tomasi, Gleason & Rollins

This installment of Green Lantern Corps gathers up some troops for a mission. There isn’t a whole lot of plot development here, but more of a setting of the chess board. It’s a nice issue, but it doesn’t “wow” you like some of the previous ones in this series. This issue does make use of a very wide array of characters. It’s nice to see such a big cast getting a push in this comic.

REVIEW: Green Arrow & Black Canary #7

Green Arrow & Black Canary #7
DC Comics
Winick & Chiang (with Norton)

I’m digging this series. Every issue has some humor, some fighting, some mystery and a cliffhanger. This issue gives us a couple of new characters to play with and a new artist. There are a few oddities with the story telling, but I’m thinking something is in the works here and based on the reveal at the end I would think there is more than meets the eye.

REVIEW: World Of Warcraft #5

World of Warcraft #5
Wildstorm Comics (DC)
Simonson, Lullabi & Hope

This issue delivers yet another solid issue which is quickly becoming the norm for a series that is hitting all the right notes out of the box. This isn’t your typical comic thus far, that has canned arcs with part one of X. Instead, the story just moves from issue to issue dealing with the new problem at hand. This format is working for creating interesting stories that fit in a bigger whole.

REVIEW: Green Lantern #29

Brandon Borzelli's Geek Goggle Reviews

Green Lantern #29
DC Comics
Johns, Reis & Albert

This issue has the revisiting of Hal Jordan’s origin. I understand that this arc will open up new items in his origin to bring about future storylines, but this issue is almost all the old story, just retold. This is fine for the new readers, but does the veteran reader get anything at all to keep them interested?

Justice League The New Frontier DVD

ComicList Critiques by Charles LePage

Justice League The New Frontier DVD
Warner Home Video

Based upon the miniseries of the same name, this DVD would be appreciated most by viewers who either have read the series, or have an extensive knowledge of of the pre -Crisis DC universe. Otherwise, anyone watching this film will be left confused by a large number of on screen characters that carry little or no explanation or background information. Plus, some, like myself, will find the "adult" language unnecessary and diminishing to the overall quality of the movie.
