October 16th, 2011 by | Tags: , , , , , ,

Not gonna lie, after this weekend, it feels like I read these two weeks ago. What a time. I’ll get to that soon enough, including reviews on the new Green Lantern cartoon, the upcoming Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D movie and more. I’ll also have a gallery of my latest theme sketchbook.

Oh, I will say that Legion of Monsters is worth checking out. It’s like a follow-up to Frankencastle without Punisher involved. I wish the underground monster community would gain more popularity in Marvel.

  1. Whoa, Robinson actually did get a Shade series?

    Is all of the Starman stuff still valid post reboot then?

  2. Those faces in Punisher MAX are amazing. I look at them and look at them, and my first impression just won’t move from “trout.”

  3. Steve Dillion is a great storyteller, but he has about, oh lets say, six different faces he can draw. That is one of them!

  4. I thought that panel with Damian seemed too excessive. It just seems like the whole comic treats damian up to this point as some sort of troubled frankenstein child.

  5. @Randy: That seems like a fair enough reading of him to me. That panel makes me want to read the comic, because I don’t think Morrison would write that scene (and I like Morrison okay).

  6. Why is Kate Kane so white? Greg Burgas pointed it out, but I thought the same thing when I read Elegy.

    I like Diogenes Neves’ art from those panels, and his name is awesome to boot.

    Does Legion of Monsters have Elsa Bloodstone in it? I’m totally buying that trade! I wish Nextwave would get picked up again.

    I always felt that Punisher only worked as a MAX title, but I’m interested in seeing what Rucka does with it. He’s among my favorite writers, both comic book and prose.

    I just can’t get into Steve Dillon’s art. I can’t really point to why, it’s just something about the faces. They’re technically well-drawn, but I guess they’re just ugly or something? I think it’s that all his faces look like the same angry middle-aged dude, regardless of the age or sex of the character. His art is the main region I couldn’t keep reading Preacher after volume 2.

    What’s up with Harley’s new look? Not sure I like it.

    I think I need to start reading Uncanny X-Force. It looks just bloody enough.
