Free Comic Book Day: Quick Comic Reviews

Written by GLX on Tuesday, May 05 2009 and posted in Reviews
GLX gives his take on some of the comics that were released on Free Comic Book Day.

Blackest Night #0

A great offering from DC. The story is well written, with some great art to boot(loving Sinclair's color work). The back up files give a nice heads up on who the different corps are and what they're about. I might have to pick up Blackest Night, based on this comic.

Disney/Pixar's Cars #1

I understand that the typical comic that is released on Free Comic Book Day is usually just a bunch of samples. That's understandable. What annoyed me about this comic was that it went through 2/3 of the story before saying, "Buy Cars: The Rookie #1 to get the full story." Look, if it's just going to be a simple preview then that's fine. Using that much space for the Car's tale seemed a bit silly. The Incredibles preview was nothing that hasn't been seen before. Could've been a lot better.

Owly And Friends

Nothing surprising about this comic. It was entertaining. Nothing more; nothing less. Kinda cool that James Kochalka's son did some work on one of the tales, but outside of that nothing really stands out.

Savage Dragon #148

This comic is just dull. The art is meh. The story doesn't entertain. It just goes the motions. Looking through the backup feature on how Erik Larsen chose to portray Daredevil was interesting and he went with the right direction, on how to portray him. Still, this was not an interesting comic.

Wolverine: Origin Of An X-Man

This was quite the surprise. I was expecting it to be a bit dull, but it held my interest. It's not a full on origin tale of Wolverine, but it is a nice little adventure. It moves on at a decent pace and the cause of the issue's dilemma was interesting.
