Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #1

It amuses me how The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is still influencing the naming of “secret agencies”, so many still have periods after every letter, sometimes meaning each letter represents a word, sometimes just making fun of the trope. They’ve combined … Continue reading

Grifter #1

I never read Grifter before this issue. It was a Wildstorm comic and I didn’t read many of those. Grifter was a character I only encountered when he appeared in other titles, and I didn’t start reading any Wildstorm titles … Continue reading

Demon Knights #1

Etrigan the demon gets his own series. Paul Cornell is writing it, so that is in its favor. If anyone can write this as more than just the mystical blather the character has been infused with since his creation, it … Continue reading

Deathstroke #1

I don’t really like Deathstroke. He’s one of those villains that should be fairly easily beatable when he goes up against groups like the Titans and his threat level always seems contrived. I could understand if he was going up … Continue reading

Omac #1

¬†OMAC or O.M.A.C. to be more traditional is originally a creation of Jack Kirby when he was at DC Comics. O.M.A.C. stood for One Man Army Corps and took place in a dystopian future. We’ll have to wait to see … Continue reading

Static Shock #1

I’m not sure why, but Static Shock seems much more cartoony than the other reboot titles I’ve read so far. It could be the art or it might be the fact that I first encountered Static through cartoons. Static originally … Continue reading

Stormwatch #1

Stormwatch seems to be a reboot of the title The Authority. They’ve monkied around with it a little, throwing in the Martian Manhunter for some reason. I suppose they didn’t want the Martian Manhunter in the Justice League because he’s … Continue reading
