X-Men Legacy: Collision
X-Men Legacy: Collision
by Mike Carey
Edition: Paperback
Price: $12.33
56 used & new from $1.17

4.0 out of 5 stars OVERALL GRADE: B., August 29, 2015
Children of the Vault and the focus on Indras are arguably the fresher focuses compared to the usual X-Men tales. Rogue gets some actual spotlight but this is more of the Indras' story.


X-Men Origins II (X-Men (Marvel Paperback))
X-Men Origins II (X-Men (Marvel Paperback))

Good enough for those who want a review of the origin tales for some and more valuable to those who don't know much about it.


Fables: Werewolves of the Heartland (Fables (Graphic Novels))
Fables: Werewolves of the Heartland (Fables (Graphic Novels))
by Bill Willingham
Edition: Paperback
Price: $12.33
54 used & new from $5.24

4.0 out of 5 stars OVERALL GRADE: B to B plus., August 25, 2015
Bigby follows a lead in middle America, finding a community of werewolves and ties to his past during World War II.

Of course there are problems and of course it means lots of wolf vs. wolf (the cover gives it away some). Artwork varied on this one but I'll still give it a borderline four stars.


Green Lantern: Tales of the Sinestro Corps
Green Lantern: Tales of the Sinestro Corps
by Geoff Johns
Edition: Paperback
31 used & new from $7.68

4.0 out of 5 stars OVERALL GRADE: B to B plus., August 25, 2015
Sinestro is back and things are told from his point of view so look out, Green Lantern lovers. Sure, Hal Jordan and other Green Lanterns make appearances but they're in the background.

This is Sinestro's tale and even if he's a bad guy most of the time the universe needs him. He'll explain why in this book or have his PR people handle the matter.

Good artwork that nails some of the Green Lantern stuff nicely.

Questions?


Fairest: In All the Land
Fairest: In All the Land
by Bill Willingham
Edition: Paperback
Price: $12.33
58 used & new from $7.53

4.0 out of 5 stars OVERALL GRADE: B plus., August 19, 2015
Cinderella is a secret agent for the "good" Fables and in this run she becomes more of an investigator trying to solve murders which involve most of the beautiful Fable women of the community.

The narration cuts from the perspective of Cinderella to the Magic Mirror.

Who says the Fables line is dead? Willingham just wanted to focus on some new stories without the baggage of along running series.


Batman Vol. 4: Zero Year-Secret City (The New 52) (Batman (DC Comics Paperback))
Batman Vol. 4: Zero Year-Secret City (The New 52) (Batman (DC Comics Paperback))
by Scott Snyder

Price: $13.59

I read vol.5 before this one but now vol. 5 flows better for me as a result.

This is the 52 reboot's inception of Batman with some notable focuses on what Batman does and does not stand for. Overall, well written with the usual illustrious artwork.

Purists of the old graphic novels may be disgruntled with some of the changes but what were you expecting? It's a new world order or so I hear.


Batman Eternal Vol. 1 (The New 52)
Batman Eternal Vol. 1 (The New 52)

Edition: Paperback
Price: $23.15

5.0 out of 5 stars OVERALL GRADE: A minus to A., August 15, 2015
An epic scope of the Bat Family as Jim Gordon goes to trial for murder.

Glorious artwork.

Well plotted by Scott Snyder.

Get it, read it, love it.


Superman/Wonder Woman Vol. 1: Power Couple (The New 52)
Superman/Wonder Woman Vol. 1: Power Couple (The New 52)
by Charles Soule
Edition: Paperback
Price: $12.09
61 used & new from $8.48

5.0 out of 5 stars OVERALL GRADE: B plus to A minus., August 13, 2015
The 52 reboot has a young Superman and Wonder Woman attempting to hide their romance from the public amidst ordeals with General Zod, Doomsday, The Phantom Zone and other issues.

Unlike a lot of graphic novels the romance is exhibited well and doesn't go down the juvenile road.

BATGIRL # 11 DC Comic (Sept 2012) The New 52 Series

Edition: Comic

5.0 out of 5 stars OVERALL GRADE: B plus to A minus., August 11, 2015
As I said in another short review it's a new type of Batgirl in the 52 world. Yes, she had a horrible encounter with the Joker but she's no longer bound to a wheelchair.

In this installment we see a bit as to how she became Batgirl, a lot about her family history and her dealings with crime, especially in regards to the Court of Owls.

A focus on reality and hidden truths about heroes. Well done as usual and in some cases as good as the original WATCHMEN graphic novel.
