Doc’s Reviews for the Week of 11/6/19
JUSTICE LEAGUE #35 DC COMICS
It’s too late at this point to complain about beating a dead horse. All I can do is sit quietly and wait for this year (of the villian) to come to a close. The Anti-Monitor is back (but we already knew that) but this time he has serious mommy issues. Still can’t even tell that’s Luthor. Hawkgirl realizes that she screwed up a few issues back. Her and Jo’nn’s kid is annoying. Kamandi’s appearance is basicly over and the JSA are more backround filler than anything else. Although, Wildcat does have a few good lines. Oh and Gaslight Batman’s universe bites it because of their low tech and lack of help. Meanwhile, the multiverse is giving up hope. If I wanted to read about that, I could just pick up a newspaper. I give it 5 out of 10 Grahams.
LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #1 DC COMICS
Great Ceasar’s Ghost, this one makes my head hurt! I actually feel like Superboy in this issue. I am totally overwhelmed by the information here and someone keeps promising to fill me in but never does. That being said Bendis does manage to spotlight a couple of the new version of the Legion including Ultra Boy and ERG-1, I mean Wildfire. (Total shout out to old Legion fans there!) While confussing, the new concepts being thrown at us do seem very interesting and I look forward to them being explained in detail in the near future. I give it an 8 out of 10 Grahams.
GRIMM FAIRY TALES 2019 HOLIDAY SPECIAL ZENESCOPE ENTERTAINMENT
More twist ending shorts with everyone’s favorite evil X-mas punisher, the Krampus. Maybe it’s due to my great age but the twists aren’t all that surprizing. And while those being punished definately deserve it, I really didn’t enjoy it. But the snowman cover girl on Cover E is the way to go. I give it a 6 out of 10 Grahams.
RICK AND MORTY PRESENT UNITY #1 ONI PRESS
I realize that this a comic book and can’t go as far as the Adult Swim show, I can’t help but feel cheated by this issue. When you crazy ex-girlfriend is an alien who can control entire populations and pass along her perverted fantasies, I’m expecting a lot. Unfortunately, this is a rather watered down version of the concepts shown in the episode. Still, it does have some of what made the Unity episode popular. Just not enough. I give it a 6 out of 10 Grahams.
MINIONS #1 TITAN COMICS
More adventures of those adorable little yellow henchmen. However, after reading these delightful tales, I wonder if the characters themselves are so far out of the current conciousness that this title is going to be shortlived at best. Still, this is an enjoyable read. I give it a 7 out of 10 Grahams.
