The Spinrack - 9/22/09

Written by GLX on Tuesday, September 22 2009 and posted in Reviews
GLX reviews some comics including Blackest Night #3 and Batman and Robin #4.

Batman and Robin #4

Right off the bat, I've got to say that Tan's work is solid for the most part. It's a bit off at times, but it works for the most part. The new duo that have entered the Dynamic Duo's life is somewhat entertaining, though Scarlet is the most intriguing of the bunch.

Blackest Night #3

Another solid issue. Some excellent moments in here, especially one with Firestorm that I won't spoil here. The multiple corps thing is a little tiring to me, but the character work keeps me coming back for more.

Dark Avengers #8

This sucker was going through the motions, with the exception of the reveal of what the Science Club has been working on. The betrayal within the Dark X-Men was somewhat interesting. Ross' art nice, but it doesn't match the quality of Dodson's work on the previous issue.

Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Exodus #1

Though the final battle that took place was cool, the new status quo for the X-Men is pretty cool. Deodato and Dodson brought it, on the art side of things. Christina Strain's coloring felt a bit odd considering that Justin Ponsor worked on most of the comic.

Flash: Rebirth #4

Another solid issue in this mini. Johns and Van Sciver deliver some great work. This miniseries is making me consider buying the new Flash series.

Retro Review of the Week!

Uncanny X-Men #327(1995)

This comic, crafted by Scott Lobdell and Roger Cruz, deals with a mysterious white haired man that appears at a Spanish orphanage that is run by a woman named Sister Maria. The man has no memory of his past, but might have something in common with a popular X-Men rogue. For the most part, the writing manages to be enjoyable. Cruz's pencil work is okay. His style is a bit rough, but he manages to convey the plot without any confusion on the reader's part. Overall, this sucker is lukewarm.
