Review Round Up: Presenting All This Past Week’s Comic Book Reviews

by Olly MacNamee

Another week has flown by, but once more our relatively small but dedicated team of reviewers too a look at another large pile of comic books. Any of our reviews you agree with? Any you disagree with, like my slating of this week’s Fantastic Four #30 here? Was I too harsh, or on the money? Or, did you think I was too generous in awarding Image Comics’ Home Sick Pilots #5 a 10/10 here? Although, I do think I was bang on the money with my advance review for my comic of the week IDW/DC Comics’, Locke & Key/The Sandman: Hell & Gone #1 here. I even found the time to review Vault Comics’ A Picture of Everything #3 here. And finally, for this week, I reviewed DC Comics’ The Swamp Thing #2 here.

Phew, I don’t know when was the last I’ve managed to review that many comics in one week. I must say, it’s always fun doing reviews and a nice chance to flex my critical voice. Rightly or wrongly.

Fellow Senior Editor, James Ferguson, also kept himself very busy this week flexing his own critical voice with reviews for Marvel’s Darkhawk: Heart Of The Hawk #1 here, and Non-Stop Spider-Man #2 here, Dark Horse’s Black Hammer: Visions #3 here, and he even found time to review new graphic novel Shadow Life from First Second Books here.

Then there were Scott Redmond’s reviews. He looked at an all Marvel roster of titles with reviews for Power Pack #5 here, Children of the Atom #2 here, Black Cat #5 here, and Marauders #19 here.

Richard Bruton, fling the flag for British comics, reviewed two UK releases with a look at SelfMadeHeroes The Dancing Plague graphic novel here, and crowd-funded comic series Sentinel here.

Tony Thornley reviewed Marvel’s The Immortal Hulk #45 here, and Guardians of the Galaxy #13 here, both written by Al Ewing.

Rachel Bellwoar, as well as being one of our tp TV and film reviewers also took the time to post reviews for the new Doctor Who title, Missy #1 from Titan Comics here, Imprints’ graphic novel, The Back Ups: A Summer of Stardom here and BOOM! Studios, Scotland Bound, Charlie Brown here.

Brendan M Allen looked at AfterShock Comics’ Maniac of New York #3 here and Geiger #1 from Image Comics here.

Last but not least, Cesareo Garasa reviewed Magic #1 here from BOOM! Studios here.

Another big week of reviews suggesting that extra slice of mouldy bread were serving out inmates is working wonder on their productivity. Keep this up and we may even offer them water with their food in the near future. I mean, we’re not animals, right?
