What I Read - Week of 04/08/09

Superman: World of New Krypton #2 – Good issue, digging Pete Woods’ art, after seeing him rising through the ranks. People complain about the “silliness” of the Kryptonians costumes, but it’s no more ridiculous than anything else in comics.

Titans #12 – written by McKeever, regardless of what prior solicts said. A good enough issue as part of the Deathtrap crossover. The scenes of Joey’s decent into madness were well done but I’m not a fan of the way Beast Boy is drawn. He just looks odd.

Deadpool: Suicide Kings #1 – Screw Wolverine Art Appreciation month, it’s a mini-Wade Wilson love month! Two weeks ago, we had the Game$ of Death Annual, last week was the next part of the crossover with Thunderbolts and this week is the first issue of a mini-series. I will buy it to help keep Deadpool prominent and this was fun. The new take on Wade’s insanity started by Daniel Way has really grown on me.

Wolverine: Weapon X #1 – With 10 Wolvie books this month, plus the twenty plus cover appearances, it may be difficult to sift through it all and find something good. This now third monthly has a great creative team (Jason Aaron and Ron Garney) but the story is nothing we haven’t seen before. Someone’s creating an ARMY of Wolverines, I can only guess to populate more books. I have faith that Aaron can make it all interesting. This also has a preview of a new Ghost Rider story planned for August, supposedly the end of Aaron’s run on the book.

Green Lantern # 39 – We don’t have the Orange Lantern oath yet, but Sinestro is still on the loose, Hal is half green and half blue and the Guardians appear to have been the main reason for all the problems in the universe. We plug along towards Blackest Night.

Captain Britain and MI13 #12 – Dracula’s war against England continues as we see more of his plan and armies unfold. Gotta say, this is a great book and can’t wait to see how Dracula falls.

War of Kings: Ascension #1 – Abnett and Lanning again take another “forgotten” 90’s hero (Nova) and give him the cosmic makeover. They are such a great writing team and do a much better job with Darkhawk than the C.B. Cebulski (writer of the previous miniseries) does.
