Review Round Up

by Olly MacNamee

Over the past week we brought you over twenty new comic book reviews for comics published this past week, or from the previous week. Even more than the previous week showing our new policy of allowing our reviewers to leave their cells for one hour of sunlight a day is paying off. Who knows, at this rate we may even feed them three times a day.

In Cell One we have Brendan M Allen who brought us reviews for AfterShock’s Maniac of New York #2 here and Scout’s Honor #3 here. And from Dark Horse Comics Brendan looked at Orphan and the Five Beasts #1 here and Nottingham #2 from Mad Cave Comics here. With an added crack of the whip he even gave us a review of We Only Find Them When They’re Dead Book One here.

Moving onto Cell Two and we find Senior Editor James Ferguson who gets Senior Editor privileges. An additional glass of water a day. Looks like those two glasses daily has paid off with reviews for Image Comics’ Birthright #47 here, Mighty Morphin #5 from BOOM! Studios here, Marvel’s newest X-Men title, Children of the Atom #1 here, as well as Non-Stop Spider-Man #1 here, and Dark Horse’s Black Hammer: Visions #2 here. It’s amazing what extra hydration can do to a prisoner – sorry, person’s – motivation.

Howling in the corner cell here in the Comicon dungeons is Tony Thornley who gave us reviews for DC Comics’ Batman: Urban Legends #1 here, as well as reviews for Marvel’s X-Force #18 here X-Factor #8 here and The Immortal Hulk #44 here.

New inmate Scott Redmond seems to have reacted well to the extra protein he’s getting in his diet. But then insects are cheap if you can catch them yourselves. Scott brought the thunder this week with reviews for DC Comics Catwoman #29 here, Nightwing #78 hereThe Next Batman: Second Son #4 here, Marvel’s Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade #1 here, Champions #5 here, Stillwater Vol. 1 here and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #115 here.

Meanwhile, in Cell Four Rachel Bellwoar gave us her views on ComiXology’s Snow Angels #1 and #2 here as well as an advance review for Curtiss Hill from Dark Horse here.

And in our last Cell we find Benjamin Hall who reviewed Kickstarter The Plague and Doctor Caim as part of last Sunday’s Kickstarter themed Super Sunday line-up here.
