Guardians Of The Galaxy (Marvel)(Guardians Of The Galaxy #0.1, #1-10 & Guardians Of The Galaxy: Tomorrow's Avengers #1)


How Everything Flows Together: It all flowed together great until the end where they tacked on Tomorrow's Avengers. It didn't finish the story and the artistry was bad. They should have just left it out.

The Storyline: Starlord & Co have to fight the Badoon as well stop Thanos from destroying earth. Iron Man was also there and call Golden Guardian.

Artistry: It's alright until Tomorrow's Avengers. That one was horrible and really took it down

How much I Liked It: I liked it quite a bit. I had only seen the movie before this so i didn't have a lot of knowledge about this group going in. After reading it though i definitely want to read more.

Final Thoughts: Awesome story that everyone should read. If you've never read it before it's a good place to start because it goes into a little backstory to start things off.

My Rating : * * *3/4 out of 5.

Hellboy: The Right Hand of Doom (Dark Horse)
(Dark Horse Presents #151, Dark Horse Presents Annual '98 & '99, Gary Gianni's The MonsterMen, Abe Sapien: Drums of The Dead and Hellboy: Box Full of Evil #1 & 2)


How Everything Flows Together: It didn't. All this was is a bunch of stand-alone short stories

The Storyline:There's 9 of them. One if them is, i kid you not a 2 page story about Hellboy eating pancakes for the first time.

Artistry: Good Artistry would have helped but sadly we didn't get that either. It was pretty bad.

How much I Liked It: I didn't care for it at all. When the first story is about pancakes my hopes aren't very high.

Final Thoughts: i picked this up because I had seen the movies. I was a bit leary getting one from a less well known company but decided I would give it a shot because I enjoy a lot of stuff people think is shit. A decision I regret. If you've never read it then don't bother. If you have then I feel your pain.

Batman/Superman: The Search for Kryptonite(DC)
(Batman/Superman #44-49)


How Everything Flows Together: We're back to perfect flow which is nice

The Storyline: Batman & Superman decide to rid the world of Kryptonite. They go around the world and destroy most of it. Then the US government gets involved and Amanda Waller almost kills Clark with Kryptonite weapons as well as a Kryptonite laced Doomsday clone & unmasks Bruce. Turns out Lexcorp provided them with the weapons so they go pay Clark's old flame and new Lexcorp CEO Lana Lang a visit. Something happens i won't spoil for you. The end has Clark giving Bruce the last piece of Kryptonite just in case.

Artistry: Just like the last one in this series it has that classic feel I'm starting to really enjoy that adds to the story.

How much I Liked It: I enjoyed it. Again it's perfect for the Batman or Superman fan so it's really enjoyable if you're like me and are fans of both of them.

Final Thoughts: A great change of pace after the last one. After reacing these two in the Batman/Superman series I will definitely be on the look out for more

Not sure if you read them, but in terms of Batman, you have to read

Batman: Year One
Batman: The Man Who Laughs
Batman: The Long Halloween

That's where I started with graphic novels (I have always been a big Batman fan from the movies and the animated series and games, just never had read the comics).

I have Dark Victory that I will likely read this weekend.

I would have to check but I think I have all of those on my Amazon wish list already.

It's just a matter of being able to buy them

Batman '66 Vol. 2 (DC)
(Batman "66 #6-10)


How Everything Flows Together: It was a bunch of short stories based on the old Adam West TV show so as one whole novel it didn't really flow.

The Storyline:: There was a bunch of them so I'm not going to detail on all of them. I would be here for a while if I went through all of them

Artistry: It based on Adam West and I have to give them credit Batman really did look like Adam West. The Artistry was very good for what it was.

How much I Liked It: It was OK but I didn't enjoy the campiness. I get that the old show was campy so this kind of had to be but that kind of stuff just isn't for me.

Final Thoughts: Out of all the reviews I've done this is the first one I just couldn't finish. Even Hellboy I was able to speed read my way through but this I couldn't. The campy nature just kept me from getting sucked in the way I like and when that happens I just don't enjoy it and don't finish. If you're a Batman fan or a fan of the old TV show give this a shot, maybe you'll have better luck than me.

Batman Vol. 7: Endgame (DC)
(Batman: #35-40)


How Everything Flows Together: It all flows together nice.

The Storyline: I don't want to ruin this for anyone who may want to read it.

Artistry: It's got an amazing futuristic feel to that i love. Crisp, clean & awesome

How much I Liked It: It may be that the last one was that bad but I loved this one. I couldn't put it down.

Final Thoughts: Simply awesome. This is a must read for everyone. If you're a Batman fan you owe it to yourself to find it & read it.

Superman: A Celebration of 75 years (DC)


How Everything Flows Together: it was 75 years worth of comics so while this didn't flow llike most of the others it wasn't supposed to.

The Storyline: there were a lot and i enjoyed all of them

Artistry: it ranged from 1938 to 2011 so this varied as well. It was nice to the artistic evolution of Superman though.

How much I Liked It: I didn't go into this hoping for a single story so that helped keep my enjoyment up quite a bit.

Final Thoughts: This should be high on the list of every Superman fan if they haven't read this. Just seeing the evolution of Superman makes the slightly boring & outdated parts pretty cool to read.

Civil War: Frontline Vol. 1 (Marvel)
(Civil War: Frontline #1-#6)


How Everything Flows Together: There's actually 2 main stories as well as 2 smaller stories. They flow pretty well ll this considered.

The Storyline: Embedded is about 2 reporters who report on the growing problems with the registration act.

Accussed is about the last superhuman survivor of the Stamford tragedy and what he has to deal with now that he's a criminal

Artistry: Sleek & Modern like the others in the Civil War saga. Still my favorite style.

How much I Liked It: It was nice to see things from a human perspective like in Embedded. Accussed was a nice way to show us how the public is reacting to the tragedy and their need to blame anybody for what happened.

Final Thoughts: if you like the Civil War Arc you owe it to yourself to read this one.

Civil War: Frontline Vol. 2 (Marvel)
(Civil War: Frontline #7-#11)


How Everything Flows Together: There's actually 2 main stories as well as 2 smaller stories. They flow pretty well ll this considered.

The Storyline: Everything gets tied in a neat bow and doesn't leave any loose ends.

Artistry: Sleek & Modern like the others in the Civil War saga. Still my favorite style.

How much I Liked It: Nothing has changed between Vol. 1 & Vol. 2. Why they didn't put it all in one edition is beyond me.

Final Thoughts: It was a nice end to a great story. Had it all been in a single binding it may have gotten 5 stars.
