It's time for me to order comics this week.

Also, Amlah pmed me asking me to say something this week, since as many of you know, I did start the review group, and I am in many ways the best owner the group ever had. I don't really know what to say though except thanks for all doing this and keeping it going for so long.

Siege #2
Written by Brian Michael Bendis
Art by Olivier Copiel

"Stupid superhero books.
Always pulling me back in."
This is what I said as I finished reading this comic.

You see, I like the different, I like the little things, and as excited as I was for Dark Reign after Secret Invasion, half a year later, I was exhausted. I gave up on New Avengers, Dark Avengers, Secret Warriors, Deadpool, etc. Blackest Night was boring me as well. Suddenly, the only standard cape and tights books I was reading was my beloved Spider-Man and my favorite of the big two, Batman.

At the end of this book, is another script. It is Nick Fury rallying his troops and all of a sudden I realized what I was missing out on by giving up the ghost on issue four. That was some bad ass shit! And there weren't any pictures.

Okay, to the comic itself. Badassery abounds. Ares figures out that Norman played him and he is pissed, but oh shit that's mofo Sentry acting like he grew a pair. FINALLY. The big yellow guy gets down to business and rips Ares a new one, literally.

Meanwhile, Jarvis is trying to get the band back together again. Cap has got some Warriors and some New Avengers. Oh yeah and Thor is gonna kick some ass. Hell yeah. Kid's gloves off, bust some heads action.

I love it. Only things I am confused about... one who the fuck was the old man that tells Ares about Asgard not being there by some mistake and what does he mean that Thor's dad is alive? Next, that's Ares' kid that Nick tells to stand down, right? Yeah I guess I gots to pick up some Secret Warrior trades or something.

And it was nice to see the correctly printed script page from last issue and unlike Marvel to put out a new one to fix the mistake. They almost show some class.

It is easy to understand after this issue why Bendis worked with Hickman on Secret Warriors, only question is why is SW not crossing over with this.

Unfortunately, my questions (the ones about this book) aren't answered on the page so I give this book the following score:
story - 8
Art - 9
Overall 8.5

Cinderella From Fabletown With Love #4
Written by Chris Roberson
Art by Shawn McManus

First name your story after a David Bowie song.

Then have a flash back to WWII era Bigby.

Next include the Cobbler who is possibly my favorite Fable since Kevin showed up in Jack.

Mix in a little harem or two and some sexual tension between Cinderella and Aladdin and I will call you a fun ass comic.

The fact that this is a spy story with some elements of Scooby Doo thrown in here and there makes it brilliant.

Roberson has matched Willingham's tone perfectly and McManus, well he recalls Medina, Buckingham, and Pepoy - all while somehow conjuring Cameron Stewart to the party.

Oh yeah, and on top of this scrumptious dessert for Fables fan, next issue we get to go see a new Homeland territory. YAY!!!!

Puss in Boots and Aladdin remarking on how crazy talking animals are as assets is just the cherry on top!

Story 9 (it would be a ten, but the whole feminism thing is a bit preachy in this issue)

To wall #2 Written from the art of Bendis of Michael of Brian for Olivier Copiel

"It obscures the books of the premium one-hero. Always to pull me in".

This is that I said while I ended to read this cómico. She sees, I the flavor of the different one a, I the flavor of the small things, and therefore excited while I age for the dark kingdom after the private invasion, one of half of the year after, I was deprived. I have given above in Avenging novelties, the darkness of Avenging, the private warriors, Deadpool, etc. that the night pierced also most of myself blackens.

To the unexpected, alone one the handle and reserve the rule of the carousels of panting I age the reading was my Spider-dear Man and my favorite person or my thing of two big ones, the batman. In the end of this book, is it a the other the certificate. It is the rage of Nick that groups again his troops and to the unexpected one I led to good end that I was lacking for I am on to give the of above of the phantom in the edition four.

That it ages some excrement me of the ass! And there the weren' some t images. The approval, to the actual cómico. Badassery abunda. The airs appaiono for I am that played it to the Norman and is the mijado, but oh the cagou that' the sentry of the mold of s that the actua while a pair grew. FINALLY.

The large yellow começ individual for low to the business and to the tears Airs a novelty, literally. The meanwhile, Jarvis experiences to receive in returns the band together another time. The thorn of channel has some novelties warlike and some Avenging. Oh itself and the Thor goes to the relegates some ass. The hell itself.

To joke' the gloves of s I am, breaks the action of some witness. The hook. The things that I am confused alone on… a that the pinches I was the man aged that says Airs on Asgard that is not there for a mistake and for what does of the half that Thor' the paizinho of s is alive? After that, that' s the Ares' the caçoe than Nick says to leave, the right hand? Itself I assume taken of I to the pegarar of the private commerce or something of warrior it.

And it was pleasant to see the page correctly printed some certificate of the last edition and in contrast of the marvel that stops for I am a novelty to put right the mistake. They show almost of the hall. It is easy to understand that this edition after because Bendis has working with the hickman in the private warriors, simply the question is because is the switch that do not go through himself on with this.

Unhappily, my question (these on this book) the aren' t answered in the page as soon as I give to this book that the I continue count: the story - 8 Art - 9 8,5 totals

Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #3 Preview
Written by Greg Rucka
Art by Nicola Scott
http://www.theouthousers.com/forum/view ... hp?t=36527

I can't help but think that wouldn't WW and Carol Ferris both have the bodies of 40 year-olds because those are some pretty slutty costumes they're wearing.

Anyways, not a bad set-up and gives readers a some catching up on what's happening in the main series, Blackest Night. Art-wise, probably the weakest I've seen from Scott, a normally good artist.

Zorro Mantanzas #1
Written by Don McGregor
Art by Mike Mayhew

A lost tale by Don McGregor the comic god of Zorro. With pencils by Mike Mayhew.

This reads like an adapted novel. McGregor is not afraid to be verbose and his prose is as good as any novelist. This story is a tale between a father and son at a crossroads. The father, unbeknowningly, has befriended his son’s enemy. And everything is threatening to fall down around Diego’s ankles.
Machete is cool, a kind of Captain Hook. What is nice about this book is the duality of Zorro and his villain.

There is also a great deal of insight into the hero’s world, from how his cave came to be, to his artistic pursuits. It is interesting to note the comparisons to Batman, who is a noted character influenced by this one. More noteworthy is the parallels to Superman, if not in power set in the nature of Diego’s secret life versus his public life. As such, Machete is a perfect foil and the seeking of Alejandro’s approval is all the more dramatic as a result.

A note about the book, the main book is on hiatus as of this week and this is the perfect way to fill the gap while it is on break. I wish DC and Marvel would note that this is the proper way to use a mini.

Red Sonja Wrath of the Gods #1
Written by Luke Lieberman
Art by Walter Geovani

A little back story never hurt anybody and we get that for the Budini and it all seems very interesting, especially when the book that contains the story is known more for Cheesecake then compelling story.

Then there is the lying and deceit and one wonders if it was all real or not. It is an interesting start, but almost a false start, is this an insight into the history of the character or a ploy to get her to do something distasteful?

The questing work here is solid, it recalls Tolkien and Red Sonja speaks a bit too much like Conan, not being that familiar with the red headed warrior, I wonder if that is a mistake or apt characterization.

The art is a mixed bag as well. When everyone is standing around talking, it is all a bit awkward. However, when the action starts it is glorious, just like the title character’s breasts. Details in bars and villages are also spot on as are some monster designs.

An okay read, this book does little to make me feel that this character is not a weird misogynistic version of Conan. Especially when she speaks like a Geico spokesperson and the story robs me of an emotional investment so early on.

Thank you, I did start the trend of the trains running on time and that's all I can take credit for. I also would like to say good on you for keeping things going when Sire thought he could.
