Comics Stash: December 26, 2012
I'm changing up the format of these comics posts since my Blogger dynamic theme was buggered up. (Not by me!) Thus the new look around here. 'Nuff said.
My mini-reviews of comics released on December 26, 2012.
You've probably read more than you care to on this issue. Before it came out. After it came out. I don't feel the need to pile on. The destination was as expected, but the journey was handled well.
looking forward to Spectacular Spider-Man #1.
The more they build up Arthur's character and backstory, the more I like it. That he feels as if he is being portrayed on the same level as DC's Trinity of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman speaks volumes.
Plus a cliffhanger!
I'm enjoying Doc Ock's take on what it means to be Spider-Man and that probably puts me in the minority. This issue is a pretty good pivot point between Amazing Spider-Man #700 and Spectacular Spider-Man #1.
It seems that all of the elements for a story I will like are there, but right now I have
idea what's going on. I suspect that's by design.
Not so sure about this secret superhero group that I'm assuming are the Illuminati?
My puzzler hurts.
J Michael Straczynski
A pretty "meh" issue for me and I'm glad the run is over. It's gets three bananas on the strength of Andy Kubert's art.
