Oz's 2-Cent Reviews for the week of 21-12-11
X-Factor #229 - Welcome to the multiverse Madrox, now DIE! What a wacky issue! That morbid ending is hilarious. The entire issue is one straight mind fuck. X-Factor gets back to level awesome and even the art has improved.
7 marvels, 5 dcs. large stack, short reviews.
Wolverine and the X-Men #3 - The strongest point of this book is the character interaction. However the resolution felt a bit forced if not completely unexpected and nutty. Bachalo's art serves as a good medium to nostalgia but I am looking forward Bradshaw's pencils next issue because I typically like to understand what it is I'm looking.
Uncanny X-Force #19 - I'm super glad they didn't kill Angel last month. They did however, turn him into boring, Amnesia Lad. Sorry buddy but I guess there isn't always room for jello.
Justice League #4 - Best issue of the series so far. So innovative and filled to the brim with surgically sharp dialogue. A Justice League comic of epic standards. Worth the 3.99.
Green Lantern Corps #4 - Tomasi is the master of all things green lantern. The sooner you accept this fact, the less amount of crappy comics you will read. This issue had all the things that I love about the previous GLC run; character development, sloppy bloody death, Guy Gardner being an aggressive dick and a guest appearance that expanded my penis with joy. As pre the Brightest Day era of DC, GLC has quickly become my fav Lantern book again.
Red Hood and the Outlaws #4 - A fast ride, fast dialogue and plenty of action. This one went by with the blink of an eye. Not amazing, but ok.
New Mutants #35 - Did I ever mention that I love Blink? This issue has plenty of her and her newly blossoming friendship with Dani. Sub-par art that only gets saved by the writing.
Generation Hope #14 - Who allowed this comic to be all of a sudden awesome?? How did they miss for 12 issues straight and then kick major ass for the last two? Finally, if you're a Martha the Mutant Brain fan, DON'T miss this one.
Thunderbolts #167: Trippy issue, heavy on the mystical. The Underbolts move through time yet again. And Ghost hitches a ride.
Legion of Super-Heroes #4: Rookie win. The Legion sends the Dominators home with their tails between their legs. Meanwhile, Brainy is trying to wrap his head around the concept of magic.
Wonder Woman #4: Diana is hurt after last issue's revelation. But that's nothing compared to a scorned Hera. Amends are made on all fronts but come too late for some.
X-23 #19: Never trust an Elder of the Universe. Hellion and X learn that lesson the hard way. Afterwards, Laura and Julian have a talk. Also, a final page guesting from everybody's favorite vamp scamp, Jubilee.
