I think I’ll review some comicbooks.
A well-drawn, fun time travel story. I’ll definitely pick up the second issue.
I’m not sure how to feel about this. It was borderline offensive (is it alright to make fun of homeless people and call them “hobos”?), absurd (Zombie presidents? Are we really supposed to believe that Washington isn’t just bones or dust?), and a lot of fun (zombie presidents). I’ll be picking up the second issue.
I’m just beginning to get into what’s going on in the current apocalyptic title-spanning crisis, so this seems to be a good jumping on point, especially with the help of the commentary in the Augmented Reality app.
I always enjoy Havok, and the two best parts of this issue concern him: Captain America and Thor asking him out to coffee (Thor prefers lattes) and Captain America using Havok’s power for the equivalent of Wolverine and Colossus’s Fastball Special. I’ll probably pick up the second issue.
This one was really hard for me to get into. I think one of the reasons they’re “rebooting” this stuff, or at least starting back on #1, is so that new readers feel like they have a place to jump in. If I had realized earlier what all those “AR” badges were all over the comic (a hook for Marvel’s “Augmented Reality” iOS app), the commentary therein would have helped greatly. I did manage to piece it together after a few pages in, but it was kind of a frustrating experience to begin with. I have a short attention span here, people.
So the gist of it is this is Professor X’s son (the guy who was a vegetable in the second X-Men movie) and his guru is trying to get him to control all the personalities that live in his head. The comic starts with a prison scene that turns out to be what’s happening inside his mental prison. Interesting. Feels more like a Veritgo comic than an X-Men comic. At least with the Vertigo comics I remember from a million years ago.
But the art and story weren’t enough to wow me. I won’t be picking up the second issue.
