GLX's Side Dishes 4/30/09

Written by GLX on Thursday, April 30 2009 and posted in Reviews
It's the last edition of GLX's Side Dishes! Reviews include RASL #4, Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk #5 and Thunderbolts #131.


Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds #4

A nice little comic. Digging the return of Bart. A character makes a return from the grave, that was handled well. In a way, I wish that Gary Frank drew this instead of George Perez. Then again, Perez is a master at drawing massive fight scenes. Maybe, I'm thinking too much about the Legion tale in Action Comics too much. This was worth the wait.

8* out of 10*


Another comic that was worth the wait. Jeff Smith delivers a solid performance. The back story, on the dimension hopping front, was interesting. July can't come soon enough.

8.1* out of 10*

Thunderbolts #131

The worst issue out of Andy Diggle's run on Thunderbolts, so far. That doesn't meant that this comic sucked, though. It just means that I expected a bit more, from it. The execution of the ending seemed off to me. Hopefully, the next issue will be back to the level of quality that I expect out of this comic.

7.7* out of 10*

Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk #5

3 for 3 this week, on the delayed comic front. Probably, the most entertaining issue issue of this mini series since issue #2 came out a while back. The situations that are laced within this comic are pretty cool and the character work was solid.

8* out of 10*

Uncanny X-Men #509

That was interesting. Fraction did a good job, on the writing front, but it seemed a little off. I can't put my finger on it. Greg Land...well...delivers what you'd expect. I found it a little odd that Lady Deathstrike was sticking her tongue out while she stabbed the crap out of Wolverine. Still interested in how things will turn out.

7.8* out of 10*

Side Dishes on the House!

New Avengers #48-#50

I've sworn off buying $3.99 comics, that are only 32 pages(with ads). Why am I reviewing this then? Thanks to my local library, I was able to read some New Avengers. Now, the writing is typical Bendis. There are some nice moments inside these three issues, but everything feels a little stale. The art is simply okay, though there is some great art in issue #50. Not worth the $1 price hike.

7.4* out of 10*

Patsy Walker: Hellcat #4

An odd, but entertaining issue. David LaFuente's art was sharp. Nothing more to say about this comic, except that this was some wild stuff.

7.6* out of 10*

Tiny Titans #14

I should catch up with this comic. The various interactions between the Tiny Titans were great. This comic reeks of clean, cute fun. Oh..and the art was great, as always.

8* out of 10*

That's it folks. I hope that you enjoyed my Side Dishes series. Check back in a few months though, for a new project that's in the works.
