The Spinrack: Retro Reviews #5

GLX reviews another set of retro comics.



Exiles #2(2001)

The Exiles try to make things right after the huge mistake they made, in the past issue. Judd Winick's writing is okay. Despite all of the carnage, I didn't get a big emotional feeling about the action. Mike McKone's is alright. The tease at the end of the issue is interesting, but I'm not sure if it's enough to bring me back to this comic.

Legends of the DC Universe #14(1999)

The Guardian, Superman, Dubbilex and Jimmy Olsen try to stop Darkseid's minions from releasing an army of monsters and activing a ray that can reverse mankind's evolution. Mark Evanier writes off a Jack Kirby plot, with Steve Rude pencilling. The comic, for better or worse, reads like an old Jack Kirby. Caption boxes and thought balloons a plenty are on display. It's not my cup of tea, but I found it to be slightly enjoyable. Rude's pencils capture the spirit of Kirby's work and story is told in a clear manner.

6.4* out of 10*

Wolverine #94(1995)

What did I just read? Generation X guests stars in this comic by Larry Hama and Chris Alexander. Hama's dialogue wasn't bad, but the plot was just odd as hell. Alexander's art was okay for the most part. That being said, Cyber's body in the opening two page spread looked weird.
