5-Second Reviews

Alright, 5-Second Reviews is something I’d like to try here, I’ll take my entire stack of comics I got this week, and give (very) short, concise reviews. Something that’ll take you about 5 seconds to read through. Onto this week’s batch, Enjoy:

  • New Warriors #5 – Great cartoony art, cast hasn’t been formally introduced, so it’s hard to follow.
  • Runaways #28 – Whedon’s having fun creating cooky characters. Ryan’s art is gorgeous.
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer #7 – Vaughn channel’s Whedon very well, Faith kicks ass, and the story is not going where I thought it would.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #24 – The story moves forward (as opposed to last issue) but ends on a note that could prove to be either fantastic or horrible.
  • Marvel Comics Presents #1 – Five stories running the entire gamut – funny, strange, heart-warming and one that’s just boring. Stuart Immonen’s art rocks the casbah!
  • Uncanny X-Men #491 – This entire arc seemed like an awfully long winded way of getting where we are. Bring on Messiah Complex!
  • Punisher War Journal #12 – A great tie-in to a not-so-great event. The series is in dire need of a new artist (luckily, one is coming in the next arc!).
  • Green Lantern #24 – The best book DC currently published. The war reaches earth, and earth’s Green Lantern in a decisive battle against Parallax!
  • New Avengers #35 – Bendis at his best! Despite the (very) misleading cover, a solid read, and one of the best New Avengers issues in a long time.

That’s it for this week. Hope you’re better educated now. Laters.
