Vin’s Picks Week of July 9, 2012

Posted on 13 July 2012 by VinnieAve

Sorry it’s late this week but to make it up I picked a lot of books this time around.

Batman # 11- I liked this better that last month’s Batman. This is pretty much a wrap-up of past year of Batman, so if you haven’t read it all, this book isn’t for you. It’s a decent end and I look forward what Scott Synder has coming up next.

Conan the Barbarian # 6 – Another conclusion this week with The Argos Deception wrapping up. This was a great action piece (however, not the best but wait for it).

Revival # 1 – Another great start from Image brings us to this book described as a rural noir. I’ll give it rural but it isn’t really noir. So there was one day when people came back from the dead but they aren’t acting any different. Pretty interesting take on a zombie world and one that I am actually willing to read.

Punk Rock Jesus # 1 of 6 – This one is the smartest book I’ve read in a long time. It is issue 1 so take whatever I say with a grain of salt. Humanity has figured out how to clone humans and the first person cloned is Jesus of Nazareth, with his life chronicled on TV. This could be a great book, I will keep you updated and give a full review of the 6-issue mini-series.

Venom #20 – This was a fun action book that is pretty much Venom beating up baddies and saving people who he cares about. The art was strong and the pacing was good. If you are a long time Marvel fan there you will enjoy the ending.

Avengers vs. X-men: VS #4 of 6: The Daredevil vs. Psylocke was a fun story that played with psychic powers and Daredevil’s senses. A nice story but Thor vs. Emma Frost was fantastic. The use of a classic style art was a great touch that made the story great to tell, there was a bit of a theme with this book with psychic powers and a non-human brain.

Wolverine and the X-men # 13 – With so much going on in the world of X-men, it gives a chance to look at some of the characters in different ways. This time around Warbird was character of choice, getting a brief look into her past and her training.

Space: Punisher #1 of 4: I’ve saved the best for last with Frank Tieri’s Space: Punisher. In the vein of Noir and 1602 comes Space: Punisher. The first thing to say about this book is that use of pulp art makes a great feel that permeates that entire book. There is some beautiful action pieces. If you like action scifi or Heavy Metal pick this up.

Vin’s Picks: Week of June 11

Posted on 14 June 2012 by VinnieAve

If you are a long time reader of All Geeks Considered you know that we try to have a weekly comics article. When I say try I mean every few months either Diego or I try to do a run down of what we liked this week. I’m trying again. I want to do this every Wednesday night. Let’s see where this goes.

Batman #10: Twitter lost its shit over this one. It was good and there is a major twist. I think that this will have a major effect on the Bat-family but that hasn’t happened yet, I want to see what they do with it over the next few months.

Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre 1 of 4: Last week we had Minutemen and I thought that was terrible, this week we have Silk Spectre which is by no means great or visionary but there are some things that I liked about this, first is the great cover by Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts. This was the high point of the book for me (and the one thing that I really liked this week). We get some good moments of what it feels like to be a teenage girl and it makes us realize that this is not just a superhero book but actually about Laurie.

Avengers vs. X-Men: VS: 3 of 6: This book continues to be one of the dumbest books put out but I enjoy it each time. Personally the fights are fun to read and while there is really no character development or story development it can be really fun to see two character just duke it out. This is not for anyone but the nerdiest of comic book readers.

Conan the Barbarian #5: The Argos Deception Part 2: We actually get to see a part of the deception this week. Sadly this is hard to suggest since it is the second part of a three part story. It’s a pretty standard set-up to a Conan finale. I will be back for sure in 2 months hopefully telling you to pick up Conan the Barbarian #7 which will be part of a new story.
