Howard the Duck #3

Howard the Duck #3

Written by: Chip Zdarsky 

Art by: Joe Quinones 

Cover by: Jason Latour 

Released: May 13, 2015 

Chip Zdarsky’s brash, “it-shouldn’t-be-funny-but-it-is” sense of humor shines in the script and the various situations presented in this issue. Last issue, we were left with a weirdly funny cliffhanger; a character that we never thought we’d see committing a crime sticking up Howard. This issue continues immediately after and develops into something more ridiculous involving a lot more senior citizens.

The jokes come flying at you every page, yet it doesn’t become overbearing… sometimes. There’s a ridiculous story here that’s enjoyable, yet at times it feels as if it’s there only to service the punchline. It’s a little disappointing because Howard and his friends (She-Hulk is the best friend anyone could ever have) have had great development, but it takes a bit of a back seat a little too early in this run, but overall it doesn’t bring the issue down.

Operation SIN #5

Operation SIN #5

Written by: Kayhryn Immonen

Cover by: Michael Komark 

Released: May 6, 2015 

And so operation S.I.N comes to an end, but was the ending a good one or a bad one? Well let me tell you it was a good one. Like I said before on my other reviews I love Operation SIN, it’s really cool we get to go back to the 1950’s and see what was going on. It’s also very interesting to see Howard Stark and Peggy Carter go on some crazy adventures. 

The art work like I’ve said before is amazing it’s just so fluent with every stroke. Ellis does a nice job at drawing everything especially the weird alien object thing. That thing looks really cool. This series as a whole did pretty good. I would rate this series a 8/10 this issue I would also rate an 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

Darth Vader #2

Darth Vader #2

Written by: Kieron Gillen 

Art by: Salvador Larroca

Cover by: Adi Granov 

Released: Febuary 5, 2015 

Gillen picks up right where the debut left off, with Vader now serving second to the unimaginative Grand General Tagge. This Vader continues to prove more than willing to get his hands dirty, saving the collective bacon of some Imperial cannon fodder with a few well-placed TIE blasts. Gillen smartly follows this moment of general awesome sauce with sobering reality, as Vader learns he’s to head the fleets next mission with a glorified babysitter in tow. Seeing as we’re used to Vader responding to any sort of disrespect with a Force choke or a little slicey slicey, it’s initially a bit disconcerting to see him taking orders from someone not wearing a bathrobe. Gillen wisely plays into this expectation, giving the character just enough rope to both follow orders and pursue his own ends.

The rest of the issue follows said mission to completion, Vader proving time again that he’s still Boss Banana of the galaxy. Interestingly, it’s his non-action that stands out most, the character showing an air for duplicity offset from his usual Force first tendencies. Some of these instances prove a tad hard to follow, as the book’s scripting isn’t always clear from words to art. Obviously some shifts are left vague to mask Vader’s more subtle machinations, but some of Laroca’s panels are a little too open for interpretation, making Gillen’s intent tough to fully iron down. In all I would rate this issue a 7.8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

S.H.I.E.L.D #1

Shield #1

Written by: Mark Waid 

Art by: Carlos Pacheco

Cover: Julian Totino Tedesco 

Released: December 31, 2014 

Luckily, SHIELD #1 has its appeals regardless of your attachment (or lack thereof) to the show. Waid’s typical charm is on full display, resulting in a light and largely accessible first issue.

While most of the main players from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. appear in this issue, Waid kicks off the series by focusing primarily on Agent Coulson. Waid offers a glimpse into Coulson’s childhood and how a lifelong obsession with superheroes led to his new role as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Special Ops Supreme Commander. This instantly humanizes the character, who has always come across as a bit cold and lifeless in the comics compared to his live-action self. He makes for an appealing lead due to a combination of tactical wizardry and extreme nerdiness. Even with gods and superhumans clash around Coulson, he remains steadfast and in charge of the situation.

Some of the difference in Coulson’s personality stems from the fact that Waid seems to be drawing specifically from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and disregarding Coulson’s comic book origin story as laid out in the mini-series Battle Scars. I can see some readers taking issue with that mismatched continuity, but as long as the end result is better it’s not too egregious an offense. In all I would rate this issue a 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling

Written by: Christos N. Gage

Released: June 20, 2007 

In this issue we see the battle between the Hulk and Iron man through Iron Mans perspective. It’s actually kinda cool to see what Iron Man was thinking during the fight and before the fight. We also see that Iron Mans space defence was nothing for the hulk. This issue was ok the artwork was nice and in all I would rate it a 7/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

Silver Surfer #47

Silver Surfer #47

This issue was exciting! Especially because we got to see Adam Warlock. Drax the Destroyer and Silver Surfer were stuck in the Soulworld where they meet Gamora, Pip the troll and Adam Warlock who is the protecter of the Soulworld. Drax wants to get out of the Soulworld by destroying it so Adam fights him to stop him. Later in he sends them back into their own body’s 

This issue was very intresting and entertaining.i would probably rate this issue a 8/10 the artwork is really good. That’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

This series has just been great and it keeps getting better. In this issue we have Peggy Carter and Howard Stark and the rest of the crew shooting some hydra agents and trying to stop an alien from coming to earth 

This issue is great. It brings suspense, action, and thrill. The artwork in this issue like I said before is just amazing and makes you feel like your in the 1950. I all I would rate this issue an 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

Released: April 8, 2015

This issue was just as intertaninig as the previous and maybe even slightly better. In this issue we have howard the duck and rocket raccoon trying to espace from the collectors prison. The Guardians of the Glaxy even show up to help them escapes too. 

This issue was tons of fun and very intertaining. The artwork is just so good as well. The Aliens look amazing as well as all the actors. In all I would rate this issue a 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marving.

Operation S.I.N #8

Operation S.I.N #8

Written by: Jason Aaron 

Art by: Mike Deodato Jr.

Cover by: Julian Totino Tedesco 

Released: September 3, 2014

Let’s begin this one with how great the art looks. Mike Deodato’s art and Frank Martin’s colors have been great. Starting off with a flashback days before the Watcher’s death is a visual feast. The look of the flashback along with the energy pouring off Uatu looks amazing. During this final conversation, the stunned look or anger on characters really conveys the mood of the moment. One of the things I really love about this story is the consistency of the art team throughout the entire run.

As Jason Aaron runs us through the end of the story, we see battles on different fronts. You can feel the build up as it’s all headed towards the end. You know things won’t end well for some and as the answers get closer, you almost start to fear what might be revealed. We do get to see what happened to Uatu. It is heart-breaking in a way. This is a character that’s been around longer than I’ve been reading comics. It’s not something I imagined I’d ever see but I can appreciate how the events played out and why it went down this way.

In all I would rate this issue a 8/10 the whole series was a great one and I would also rate it 8/10 that’s all for this series and as always keep on marveling.

Operation S.I.N #7

Operation S.I.N #7

Written by: Jason Aaron 

Art by: Mike Deodato Jr. 

Cover by: Julian Totino Tedesco

Released: August 13, 2014 

By now you’re probably aware of some of the changes we’ve seen with Nick Fury. He’s often been a man of mystery but, until now, we had no idea just how secretive he’s been. Despite what we now know, the other heroes are still in the dark over what he’s been up to. This leads to a pretty great fight between the Avengers and Fury…in space. Nick Fury may be “old” now but he still puts up a heckuva fight. What does this mean for the other heroes that were secretly working for Fury? And before you dismiss this fight as your typical hero vs. hero skirmish, there is one hero that will be majorly affected by this battle. 

We also get some flashbacks to the moment that the Watcher was killed. Is this the moment we get all the answers? We do get some but there’s still a lot left to be told in the next and final issue. You can’t help but wonder what else Jason Aaron has up his sleeve.

This issue was good but it feels like this series is not getting better but not getting worse. The artwork was good as always. In all I would rate this issue a 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always kee on marveling.
