Hey! Guess whose work internet filter no longer blocks forums? So with two days left, let's talk about the month of April!
Daredevil by Mark Waid vols 2 & 3--Enjoying this series immensely. Spidey's line "I think this is my supervillain secret origin." is joining the ranks of favoritest lines of dialogue ever.
Winter Soldier vol. 3: Black Widow Hunt TP--This series has been (IMO) the best thing Brubaker has done in the Marvel Universe and I have unreservedly loved his Cap and DD runs. So I feel like a whiny fanboy for saying the ending to this volume just ruined it all for me. Your individual mileage may vary on that score.
Hawkeye vol. 1: My Life as a Weapon TP--Good. Very, very good. The online reviewers seem to like it more than I do, but I still highly recommend it. Totally could have done without the Young Avengers issue in the back. I would have preferred it include issue #6 or for it to have a dollar or two shaved off by dropping the YA issue.
Fatale vol. 2: Devil's Business TP--I feel bad that I have nothing original to say other than I love this. Like every other freakin' thing I've read by Brubaker & Phillips! :)
Green Lantern vol. 2: Revenge of the Black Hand HC--Like the rest of Johns's GL run, I liked this. The mystery of the Indigo Tribe was one of the few comic mysteries that I did want explained, and Johns did not let me down with the reveal. HOWEVER, I've noticed the slightest of shifts in Hal's personality since the New 52 relaunch. Not a terribly drastic change, but I'm finding him more immature and annoying than he was pre-52. I'm starting to prefer Sinestro and wondering if there is way that he can permanently replace Hal on the book.
Atomic Robo Real Science Adventures TP--Vaguely disappointing. :(
Atomic Robo vol. 7: Flying She-Devils of the Pacific TP--Not at all disappointing! :D A solid Robo adventure.
Spaceman Dlx HC--I liked it a lot. I do feel that Risso's art was tad more straightforward than it has been in the past, but he did a fantastic job of making the main character, Orson, so sympathetic.
Sixth Gun vol. 4: A Town Called Penance TP--Serious contender for Eric's Favorite Series of the Last Five Years.
