The Outhouse: The Greatest Comic Book Website - For All Your Comics and Entertainment News, Reviews, and Other Insanity

The Spinrack - 8/25/09

GLX is back with a brand new review segment, bitches.

Final Crisis Aftermath: Escape #4

This comic is still trippy as hell. Considering the odd nature of the tale, the writing remains enjoyable. The art is solid, but nothing eye popping.

7.6* out of 10*

Tiny Titans #19


Not the best issue of this series. The writing is somewhat hit or miss, but it's still entertaining. As always, Baltazar's art is impressive.

7.4* out of 10*

Viking #3


This comic's streak of badassery continues. Brandon's writing is still solid, but Klein steals the spotlight. What really caught my eye was the use of color in the art. Motion lines feature different colors and a drunken bar scene uses color effectively to show who is drunk. Fantastic stuff.

8.3* out of 10*

X-Men: Legacy #227


Decent stuff all around. Carey's writing simply entertains, without providing some extra umph. The art just settles for clear storytelling.

Retro Review of the Week!

Uncanny X-Men #394(2001)

The first issue of Joe Casey and Ian Churchill's run. It features this kick ass villain who has the ability to transport objects into his mind. The writing is nice, though Cyclops is written like a jerk. Art wise, it's standard. Still, this sucker is getting a nice score(partially, due to nostalgia).
