Miss Fury #6

(Dynamite Entertainment)

MissFury006-Cov-Tan

My first impressions of this book are that I  would advise you to get some background information before picking this up if you aren’t already acquainted.

It is not a good jumping on point in any way but that is somewhat understandable since it is six issues in and the bookend of an arc.

Battlestar Galactica #4

(Dynamite Entertainment)

BSG04-Cov-Ross

It only occurred to me after picking this one that it was a DnA title, who for the less cool kids, is Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, Cosmic Writers Incarnate.  These two together should be enough for anyone to want to give this book a shot as their writing perfectly encapsulates what made the original Battlestar great.

Green Hornet Legacy #41

(Dynamite Entertainment)

GHLegacy41-Cov-Hester

Zombies are everywhere these days aren’t they? Comics, films, and TV have all jumped on the undead bandwagon. So how do you make your zombies different to all the others? Radioactive zombies that explode when you hit them too hard, of course!l

Godzilla: Rulers Of Earth #4

(IDW Publishing)

GODZILLA_ROE_04_cvrA

The issue picks up with the big G knocked out and washed up on the beach of Miami before waking up and being attacked by Destroyah.

Fans of Kaiju movies will love this series as it’s pretty much everything you want from Godzilla. No much storyline but loads of big monsters beating seven shades out of each other.

Judge Dredd Classics #3

(IDW Publishing)

JudgeDredd_CLASSICS03_cvrA

This was a horrible read poorly written and drawn… Yeah right! You have Wagner and Grant on writing duties and Carlos Ezquerra drawing on a ‘classic’ Judge Dredd story, there is no way this review can’t be summed up by simply saying “epic”. But for the sake of clarity I will give you some more thoughts.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic #11

(IDW Publishing)

MyLittlePony11-covA

Yesterday, I did not know what a ‘Brony’ was. Today I do.

I still do not count myself among their number, but having read My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I can see the appeal.

The Other Dead #1 (Of 5)

(IDW Publishing)

The_Other_Dead

This hotly-anticipated horror series manages to bring a fresh approach to the well-established – if slightly overexposed – zombie genre. From talented creators Kevin Eastman (TMNT), Joshua Ortega (Gears of War) and Digger T. Mesch (Agent 88), The Other Dead transfers the zombie horror into the world of the animal kingdom, with frighteningly captivating results.

Powerpuff Girls #1 (Of 5)

(IDW Publishing)

PPG01-coverA

This is one I got pretty pumped about when I saw it available for review and it didn’t disappoint.

The art is exactly the same as what we all fondly remember from the series and thankfully the story plays out very similar to the show also, we even get the clasic introduction to the city of townsville by the narrator.

Star Trek #25

(IDW Publishing)

ST-movieII25-coverA

Reviewing a comic you have no real experience with can be daunting.

Interpreting an issue out of context, or jumping on in the middle of an arc you aren’t familiar with can make things difficult.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #26

(IDW Publishing)

TMNT26_cvrA

This series has been consistently good from the start and continues to deliver the goods with each issue.

The City Fall storyline continues this issue and picks up with each of the turtles looking for information about Leos whereabouts as well as building alliances for the impending street war to come

Dinosaurs Attack #3 (of 5)

(IDW Publishing)

DinosaursAttack03_cvr

I don’t even know where to start with this one. DA started life as a trading card game by the same people that made the Mars Attack game (yeah, betcha didn’t know that’s how it started) and the comic has what i like to call the Ronseal Effect, or “Snakes on a plane” effect. it’s exactly what the title says, it’s about Dinosaurs…..AND THEY ATTACK!

The Lone Ranger Annual 2013

(Dynamite Entertainment)

th

As a self-contained Western story, this book certainly ticked a lot of boxes.  We have an iconic hero, dramatic shootouts, a tale of the blurred line between justice and vengeance, and a dramatic showdown to cap it all off.  What more could you ask for?

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #21

(IDW Publishing)

transformers-comics-robots-in-disguise-issue-21-cover-a_1372873756

After what seems like an endless series of preludes, the wheels are finally gradually starting to move on IDW’s eagerly-anticipated ‘Dark Cybertron’ Transformers crossover.  Sadly though, we’re not quite there yet, although some of the preludes – this one included – have offered up some truly interesting content.
