3 Sentence Reviews for May 20th, 2009.

I’ve never felt the need to do this before but I figure, what the hey. I’ve got a blog, it’s that what people are supposed to do with blogs, right? Most of these are new releases but some are a bit older, so, bare with me.
Ok, here we go.

Dark Reign, the Cabal:
Doom is awesome. Namor is a dick, but he’s awesome. Why are the other people in this?

Uncanny X-Men #510:
I have no idea what the plot is or what is going on, and I really don’t care.Hot chick fights on every page=total fan service AND my two favorite characters, Spiral and Deathstrike are among them. Come on, look at that cover, leather-clad lovelies duking it out doesn’t need a plot. And the whole issue is like this!

Astonishing Tales #3
I want an entire mini-series set in Mojoworld. The Spider-woman story should have been a stand-alone one shot. I’m all for genetic engineering and all the cool Cyberpunk 2020 stuff, but test-tube babies driving mecha is an incredibly wrong premise… that makes no sense to begin with other than giving the audience and “ick” factor. (oh, and the art for the Wolverine/Punisher story is kick ass)

Hilarious and sick. I love that he did the “I’m a changed man, honey.” routine and the dumb bitch fell for it. Also the shoot-out at the fast food place was awesome.

Justice Society of America #26:
Great way to have a nice, humorous break after the battle with Black Adam. The heros in the convenience store buying ice cream was one of my favorite scenes. Also, loved Starman’s innuendo about his future “adventure” with Thunderbolt… or is it in the past? 

Power Girl #1:
*sigh* uh.. until I get my full review up, I’ll let Power Girl herself say it. “Hurts… so…. much… this is BAD…”

Atomic Robo Vol.3, #1:
Never read the series before but after the CGS show about the first book, I decided to check it out. Josh actually said it best when he said it felt like it was a follow up to the 2000AD series Necronauts. The twist with Lovecraft was perfect and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series as well as the previous books.
Unwritten #1:
Ok, now, the plot synopsis seemed harmless enough, a satire on Harry Potter sounded great. Do you really have to put in all the biblical apocalyptic crap… and lay it on so thick too while you’re at it. If I had known these guys were aiming for Harry Potter meets the Da Vinci Code, I wouldn’t have bothered.


Oh, and last but not least. Happy Aniversary to my wonderful Husband. It's been 4 years and not a day goes by that I don't think I'm the luckiest woman alive to have you.
