Quantum + Woody! Issue 3 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  This issue is very much a character study and a possible farewell. Both are done very well with the exception of two things. The first problem how the darker scenes are colored causes them not to appear quite right (though that may just be my slight color blindness). While the second problem is leaving unsure for most of the issue a certain animal character's fate. Like is it alive or dead after this story ends? Cause Francis Portela's art is great in every other way, but informing readers of this little detail.

  Yes, I know I am being vague but this is a very recommended issue, especially for b-movie cinephiles.

  Very Recommended!

Codename: Sailor V Volume 2 Manga Opinion Piece

I am amazed how many Japanese musical acts, and jobs, are referenced in this volume. Also amazing is how over-sexualized Minako is made to act at times. For example after the blood donation to the Mosquito villain she starts undressing. This leaves me to wonder if Naoko Takeuchi was told to do this by her editor or if she chose to do this. That said this is a way goofier volume than the first or any of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. Lastly I think that how this series deviates with the pet chapters really shows why this was the less popular of the two series.

  Questions! Is Artemis a horndog by alien cat standards? Why did Artemis confuse a dog for his future love Luna? Cause sense of smell should have been a tip-off. Would this make a good anime prequel to Sailor Moon or Sailor Moon Crystal if it was changed up somewhat? Possible changes could be the villains from the Pet Chapters being part of the Dark Agency and Adonis just being a monster summoned by her actual love interest.

Superman Issue 154 (1962) Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   "The Underwater Pranks of Mr. Mxyzptlk" is a way better narrative than the back-up "Krypton's First Superman!" Mainly this is due to the amount of plot-holes the latter has compared to the former. For example the latter has a device for teleporting people in and out of the bottle city of Kandor. This is a major problem due to the fact that no one is being resized. Also there the latter story comes across as too simplistic due to things like the flashback being all about hypnosis. However, the former is problematic due to the gas that makes adults act like children, including the firemen heading to put out a fire.

   My verdict: Overall I can only recommend this issue for fans of the side-strips Ollie and Little Pete and fans of Mr. Mxyzptlk. Otherwise it is not recommended!

Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe Issue 2 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  This is a vast improvement of over issue 1. The narrative is better sequenced and looks for the most part excellent. However, in certain scenes there is a noticeable lack of backgrounds. Though the splashes of color help make it a little less noticeable than if it were all white backgrounds. Also Colin King seems out of character at times. For example when he is shocked by Bloodshot being alive.

   Finally I will say this is an overall great issue, but it still is not the revolutionary media product promised. The main problem is that none of this seems like deleted or extended material from what the Bat In The Sun and Valiant Entertainment co-produced digital series may show.

   Recommended for those wanting a sneak peak of the digital series or a good bit of quick entertainment. Not recommended for those wanting something new.


Recommended Comics List Of 4 Fate's Strange Edition

1. Doctor Strangefate #1 (1996) is arguably the best of the Amalgam Comics cash grabs during the mid-point of the crossover DC Versus Marvel Comics. It has great visuals and terrific dialogue. The only problem is that we will probably never get to see anymore of the characters presented in it.

2. X-Patrol #1 (1996) has some problem areas in the art including whited out eyes and broken backs, but pretty well done for a cash grab comic. Recommended for those looking for references and homages.

3. Showcase '96 (1996) has two somewhat depressing yet otherwise good stories featuring Firestorm (Ronald Raymond), The Atom (Ray Palmer), and social issues. It also has a lighter story featuring the clone Superboy and Etrigan The Demon that somewhat balances things out. Recommended for those looking for a mix of topics and art styles. Rating wise I would advise 12 and up.

4. Thorion Of The New Asgods #1 (1997) is a cash grab blend of two properties (Thor and The New Gods) that Jack Kirby crea…

Omoikane and others please bless Good Morning Call Our Campus Days Episode 6 Opinion Piece

Warning Of Spoilers!

  Daichi really needs to get a clue about Nanase being romantically interested in him. Also he is really undeveloped as a character, especially when one compares him to some of the one off characters. For example the guys who beat up Natsume. Speaking of Natsume kicking butt or trying to fight back would have been a more interesting character moment versus just taking the hits. My reasoning is due to how it would have suggested more of his possible past. Though I also expected Uehara drop his umbrella and punch Natsume. Make of that what you will.

  As for Saeko I found her awkwardness, and attempts to be casual, to be very relatable. Mainly due to having a similar level of ineptitude when it comes to expressing myself romantically. Yet while I like her attempting to express herself I feel that Natsume view on things was also logical. Heck, this whole episode displays several great romantic do's and don'ts.

   Questions! What was the beverage Nao and Natsu…

Not Recommended Comics List Of 4 Generation Amalgam Edition

1. Generation Hex #1 (1997) is filled with pointless moments, weak to non-existent characterization, and visuals going off-model. Just avoid.

2. Red Circle Sorcery #6 (1974) is an anthology with stories that are too short, weirdly plotted, or in the case of the text piece not appropriate due to the series's title.

3. Shazam! #30 (1977) is a comic that has a great cover, but as soon as one gets a few pages in story starts falling apart. It also has several of the Marvel Family singing a makeshift chorus. There also is a literal phone call to the mythical Atlas. Finally they somehow got a curse word past the censors for a comic which though funny makes it something I can't give to friends' kids.

4. DC Comics Presents Annual #4 (1985) is not recommended due to one very stupid plot point. Said plot point involves a clerical error at an office that gives out travel permits for Time Travel. So a good portion of the comic relies on one minor error not being noticed or talked abou…
