Didn’t do this last month as I didn’t review enough comics to warrant it. With the history lesson out of the way, let’s get to the rankings.
#7: Martian Manhunter, 2006
Pros: Picks up near the end, unintentional comedy
Cons: Constant typos, multiple illogical moments, J’onn is out of character and overpowered
#6: Dark Avengers Vol 1 – Assemble
Pros: Some good jokes, great art
Cons: Sentry ruins fight scenes, Sentry takes up too much time, other characters have no personality or purpose
#5: Rann-Thanagar: Holy War
Pros: Varied and interesting cast, some good world building and space locales
Cons: Too preachy, The Weird settles most problems, Animal Man is treated like a joke
#4: Showcase Presents: Blue Beetle
Pros: Good art even in black and white, handles multiple subplots well, great mix of comedy, action, and drama
Cons: Stilted 80’s dialogue
#3: Carnage: Family Feud
Pros: Beautiful art, many good villains, horror elements integrate well with the humor and action
Cons: Requires a little backstory to get into
#2: Ant-Man and Wasp: Small World
Pros: Bright and colorful art, the characters bounce off of each other well, good jokes
Cons: An interesting character is dropped for the sake of a joke
And now the winner…………..
#1: Carnage, USA
Pros: Comic book cheesiness done right, a well done and poignant ending, The Thing beats up a giraffe
Cons: Hawkeye is in it and he complains for a bit
This was a pretty good month for comics and I hope next month is even better. Thanks to everyone that reads these reviews.
