“PawPrints” – Furry Senpai’s Comic Pulls for June 20, 2012

June 23, 2012 1 comment

Hi everyone,

Here’s a recap of my pickups for this week: Birds of Prey #10, Glory #27, and Astonishing X-Men #51 .  Remember, my rating does not necessarily reflect the comic’s quality (although that is taken into consideration) but rather it’s a gauge of my overall interest in the story being told.

5 = Excellent thus far, and will definitely pick up the next issue if/when available.

4 = Pretty good, the series has got my complete interest. Recommend staying with this series.

3 = If I see the next issue on shelves, I might give it  thumb-through. I’m Mildly interested.

2 = Has some good points but I didn’t find the story too interesting/I feel nothing for the characters.

1 = I wasted my money!

0 = I will BURN every copy I find!!!

Also, I am always careful to avoid spoilers as much as possible.

So let’s get to it!

Birds of Prey #10

Plenty of action in this issue, but not much else. Here the Birds of Prey are deep in the Amazon, fighting plant monsters, as they continue their quest to rejuvenate their fallen comrade, Poison Ivy. There’s nothing really wrong with this book, but it feels like TPB filler. Oh, and Black Canary can fly over short distances using her Sonic Scream. I didn’t know she could do that… Read more…

“PawPrints” – Furry Senpai’s Comic Pulls for June 13, 2012

Hi everyone,

Here’s a recap of my pickups for this week: Batman and Robin #10, Deathstroke #10, and The Massive #1.  Remember, my rating does not necessarily reflect the comic’s quality (although that is taken into consideration) but rather it’s a gauge of my overall interest in the story being told.

5 = Excellent thus far, and will definitely pick up the next issue if/when available.

So let’s get to it!

Batman and Robin #10

Easily, this was my highlight of the week. I’ve always had a soft spot for the Boy Wonder, no matter who was wearing the green tights. Here, they all come together under Damian Wayne’s challenge to see who is the “Best Robin.” I absolutely love the idea that’s presented in this book of the role of “Robin” being a kind of brotherhood and legacy. Each Robin, Grayson, Todd (oh yes, him t00), Drake, and Wayne all take the honor of the title very seriously, so much so that they’re willing to beat each other to a pulp to preserve it! Read more…

So let’s get to it! It was a really great week in comics.

The Li’l Depressed Boy #11

The story of everyone’s favorite downtrodden rag-doll underdog continues as he takes on one of the most grueling, sadistic, and depressingly horrible jobs ever to be concocted: Ushering in a movie theater. It is second in awfulness only to working the concession stand, trust me, I’ve been there… Read more…

Glory #26

Let me be clear, I fell in love with Glory as soon as I picked up issue 23. This is exactly how a hulking amazon warrior princess from outer space should appear and act. In fact, more heroes in general should look like this. Read more…
