I've always had trouble wrapping my head around writing bloated reviews for a twenty page comic that usually serves as 1/6th of a larger story. But I've often found myself tweeting a thought or two out on a comic and thought, perhaps I'm onto something here. Or not, but I'm doing it anyhow.
For those following me on twitter, I'll be tagging my reviews with #RVWS and anyone wishing to join in, if you use the tag I'll post your review as well, even if it takes us to your own blog where you have a fuller review. Only requirement is the tag and having some sort of short review blurb in the tweet.
This week, we're tackling comics from this past wednesday the 20th:
Wonder Woman #18
New Avengers #4
#RVWS - New Avengers #4, ★★★☆☆ Not a fan of alt. worlds/dimensions, but still enjoying this. Almost Ellis like, almost.— xaraan (@the_xaraan) March 22, 2013
Cable & X-Force #6
Indestructible Hulk #5
#RVWS - Hulk #5, Waid has be interesting in a Hulk book for the first time since Planet Hulk and Yu's art makes a good fit.— xaraan (@the_xaraan) March 22, 2013
#RVWS - Deadpool #6, I was never a big Deadpool fan, but Unc X-Force won me over and this new series continues what they started for me.— xaraan (@the_xaraan) March 22, 2013
#RVWS - Avengers #8, still can't wrap my head around every part of the story, it's enjoyable though and art is top notch.— xaraan (@the_xaraan) March 20, 2013

#RVWS - BKV & Marcos Martin on Private Eye #1 - wow, great first issue. Cool story, great art. I'm in on this series.— xaraan (@the_xaraan) March 19, 2013
