Review of “James Patterson’s Max Ride First Flight #1 ” – Margueritte Bennett (Author – Marvel)

James Patterson’s Worldwide Bestselling Series gets a Marvel makeover. Follow the soaring adventures of Max and her extraordinary ‘flock’–Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel–as they try to escape their creators and defend themselves from the diabolical Erasers. Along the way Max discovers her purpose – saving the world – but can she?




—–> REVIEW <—–

With such a fantastic, vibrant cover, I was prepared to be blown away by the graphics and was majorly let-down. For Marvel, I expected more. Based off the detail on the cover, I expected more. What a shame. The “Flock” looked drawn by an amateur. Sorry, Alex Sanchez (Artist) but I stand by my opinion of your work. 

As for the storyline, you don’t need to read the books to follow this story. Bennett pretty much summed it all up. As a reader of the series, I found this boring. It ended too quickly and really didn’t leave me excited or thirsty for more. I think individuals who haven’t followed the series, like myself, will agree this was just BLAH.

Review of “Hulk: The Complete Collection Volume 1” – by Jeph Loeb

 

Red alert! There’s a sadistic new red-skinned Hulk in the Marvel Universe, with keen intelligence and a radioactive touch! Who or what is he? And with Marvel’s heroes powerless against him, will it take a Hulk to catch a Hulk? It’s an explosive battle as the red and green Hulks collide! But even as Bruce Banner is attacked by a pack of wild Wendigos, She-Hulk recruits a cavalry of super heroines including Valkyrie, Thundra, Ms. Marvel and Storm! Plus: the Defenders are reassembled to take down the Red Hulk, but he’s got a team of his own!

 
 
—–> Review <—–
 
Hulk has to be the most badass character Marvel has created for us. He is a “man” of few words. Yeah, I like he lets his actions speak for himself. 
 
In this collection, we meet Red Hulk (Rulk) who is a chatterbox but can also bring the pain. His battles against everyone under the sun created a fast pace storyline. 
 
But the scene I loved the most was when he took Thor’s hammer. Sorry folks but I like when Thor gets taken down a notch. He irritates the hell out of me. 
 
Now the epic flow of words wouldn’t have packed quite the punch without the illustration talents of Ed McGuinness, Arthur Adams, and Frank Cho. 
 
You three have mad skills!!!! Errrr, you four. We mustn’t forget Jeph Loeb. 🙂
 
And Super Chicks, better luck next time!

Review of “Death of Wolverine” – Charles Soule

All roads must end somewhere, and every hero’s story eventually comes to a close. For Logan, the century-old mutant known as Wolverine, that time is now. The loss of his healing factor and the traumatic events of “Three Months To Die” have all led to this, the single most important X-Men event of the decade. Over the years, Logan has been a warrior, a hero, a renegade, a savage, a samurai, a teacher – and so much more. Logan has spent decades being the best there is at what he does…but even the best fade away eventually. And now, the greatest X-Men hero will play a role he’s never played before in this solemn special event brought to you by industry superstars Charles Soule and Steve McNiven.


—–> Review <—–

I hate to see such a fan favorite cease to exist but I thought Charles/Marvel orchestrated a remarkable exit. 

The majority of the finale was rather boring but the ending made it worth waiting for. 

And Steve McNiven (Illustrator), you did a helluva good job bringing the story to life!

—–> Review <—–
 

Like most comic enthusiasts, I was curious to read about the new Thor. I didn’t find myself getting lost in her story. However, I’m totally diggin’ her attire. Wicked cool! I can already see many female fans deciding to be “Thor” at Comic-Con and can you blame them. Check her out!

Review of “Deadpool:The Complete Collection (Volume 1)” – Daniel Way and Andy Diggle

Daniel Way’s hilarious, action-packed run begins here! When the Merc with a Mouth is hired to rub out Wolverine, sparks will fly! But when both men can regenerate any wound in minutes, how can either one expect to finish off his foe? And whoever wins will have to face Wolverine’s murderous son, Daken! Then: The Skrulls have infiltrated Earth, but nobody warned them about Deadpool! The invaders replicate Deadpool’s healing factor in a new generation of Super-Skrulls – but why is Deadpool himself leading this brigade against Earth? And when Norman Osborn double-crosses Deadpool, the maniacal merc unleashes a full-on assault against Avengers Tower! Norman must pull out all the stops – and that means deploying his new team of bloodthirsty, black-ops Thunderbolts!

 
~~~Review~~~
 
(Wolverine: Origins #21-25) I love when DP and Wolverine’s paths cross. I know I’m in for a wild ride and this time was no exception. When DP dropped a piano on Wolverine’s head, I actually laughed out loud. It appears Daniel Way was inspired by vintage Warner Bros. *grins* 
 
(Deadpool #1-12 and Thunderbolts #130-131) Deadpool training Super Skrulls. All I can is OMFG. I read the “training” scenes over and over and (yeah you guessed it) over again.  I got two words for…. KNOCK KNOCK *smiling*

Oh yeah, the rest of this collection was  pretty spectacular too. That is, if you like the idea of DP making the moves on Black Widow, Taskmaster dressing up as DP to have a bit of fun against the Thunderbolts and Bullseye taking on DP at the end of this epic tale. 

Poor, Deadpool, I can’t imagine the beast of a headache he had when Bullseye nailed him with the arrow to the noggin. Somethings Excedrin Migraine just can’t fix. *belly laugh*

Ajax returns for revenge on Dr. Killebrew as Deadpool faces the ghosts of his past…literally! And is Deadpool the Cosmic Messiah, destined to save all? Featuring Captain America, Batroc the Leaper, Blind Al and Arnim Zola!

 
 
 
 
 
Review
 
The phrase “love is blind”, without a doubt, pertains to Deadpool. He may not be easy on the eyes but his mouth keeps me in stitches. I love how you never know what crazy, weird, sarcastic lines will spew out of him next. He’s a freaking riot!
 
In this comic, the reader will be once again dazzled by his comic genius and his internal battle to do the right thing — to be a better man. 
 
We see him face off with many people including a possessed Captain America. 
 
We also discover a connection between Al and our favorite American hero. 
 
From the dialogue to the marvelous illustrations by Walter McDaniel, Pete Woods, Steven Harris , and Yancey Labatthis book was brilliantly thought out and developed for our viewing pleasure. 
 
Bravo Team Marvel! *round of applause*

Review of “Harley Quinn: Preludes and Knock Knock Jokes” – Karl Kesel

Meet the clown princess of crime! When psychologist Harleen Quinzel met the Joker, the last thing she expected was to find love – but as the Joker preyed upon her mind, she fell for him, becoming the crazy sidekick Harley Quinn! Now join in on the action as Harley breaks her ‘pudd’n’ out of jail; forms a gruesome twosome with Two-Face; arranges an all-bad-girl slumber party; hires some henchmen; reveals her secret origin; and arranges a heist – on stately Wayne Manor! This first collection of Harley’s madcap adventures is presented by author Karl Kesel (“Superman”) with fan-favourite pencil-and-ink team Terry and Rachel Dodson (“Wonder Woman”) – bad has never looked so good!

Review

Anyone close to me or who follows the like page/personal FB wall knows that I love comics. Yeah folks, I’m not just a fan of mystery and erotic tales. Like in the bedroom, I like a little variety. *winks* 

Harley happens to be my favorite evil comic chick. She just a big ball of fun and what a dresser. *grins* Yup, I have several Harley items in my closet/dresser drawers. This Christmas, Dirk got me a BUTTLOAD of Harley gear and several of her comics. I read this one first and I have to say it’s WICKED GOOD. 

She’s twisted but in a very delectable way. 

I know it would detrimental to my health to hang with her but maybe I could be persuaded to attend one of her slumber parties. I’ll even spring for the pizza. (Read the comic to find out why that’s funny.)
