Superman Batman TP Vol 03 Absolute Power
Superman Batman TP Vol 03 Absolute Power
by Jeph Loeb
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.04

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 8 Nov 2012
There are some great pieces in this story. The start, especially, is fantastic. But, by the end, the story becomes a useless, non-sensical string of Deus Ex Machina. Characters do what would look best, not what would make sense and it all just works out because comics. There is a lot wrong with this story and I would honestly avoid it if I were you. It's a needless, poorly thought-out story made all the worse by how great it COULD have been.

The other stories in this collection like Public Enemies and Supergirl are fantastic and I highly recommend them. This was a bit of a dud.


Spider-Man: Blue TPB (Spider-Man Graphic Novels (Marvel Paperback))
Spider-Man: Blue TPB (Spider-Man Graphic Novels (Marvel Paperback))
by Jeph Loeb
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic look into the mind of Peter Parker, 7 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A tale of one of the most important people in Peter Parker's life as told by the webslinger himself. Gwen Stacey was the first love of Spiderman's and her death was one of the most important character deaths in comic book history.

This story shows Peter taking a look back at how he and Gwen met and got to know each other.


Kill Your Boyfriend
Kill Your Boyfriend
by Grant Morrison
Edition: Comic

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Grant Morrison, 7 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kill Your Boyfriend (Comic)
This is the Comic book (or Graphic novel, if you prefer) equivalent to "A Clockwork Orange" or "Trainspotting", it's a black humoured look into the mind of a rebel. Asking the question: what happens if we take those teenage rebellion ideals and ramp them up to eleven?

It's a great idea, it's well written and beautifully drawn. Well worth getting your hands on.


Astonishing X-Men By Whedon & Cassaday Ultimate Collection 1
Astonishing X-Men By Whedon & Cassaday Ultimate Collection 1
by Joss Whedon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £20.10

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Whedon and X-men. What more need be said?, 18 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Imagine all the humor and wit that made Joss Whedon a fan favourite, mix that with the great characters and plot lines that exist throughout the x-men back catalogue, add in a fantastic artist who isn't afraid to re-imagine beloved characters and you have the recipe for something... well, astonishing!

Any fans of Whedon will find his classic style and pacing in this storyline. While X-men fans will find fantastic contributions to the continuity along with amazingly placed references to days past. I had the second volume ordered before I had this one finished.


Blackest Night
Blackest Night
by Geoff Johns
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic story that, unfortunately, requires a lot of background, 17 Oct 2012
This review is from: Blackest Night (Paperback)
To truly appreciate this storyline you have to be very aware of various storylines going on right before it begins.

Since the story is focused on the Green Lanterns, you definitely want to know as much about their previous stories as you can as it holds a LOT of the build up to this story line (specifically major events such as the Sinestro Corps War and the Rebirth story). There is also the major event of Final Crisis which occurs before Blackest Night.

There are plenty of websites that will tell you what stories tie into this one and what order you should read them.

This can, of course, be read on its own. It explains all the major necessary information in the book but it won't feel the same. The events will seem very flat and less important without the full back-story. So read as much of that as you can. This story was a long time in the making and is definitely worth the time/money to understand it.


The Afterman: Ascension (Digipak)

Price: £18.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Not great but far from bad, 17 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the fans who might have been hoping that this album was far-and-away from "Year of the Black Rainbow", you're going to be disappointed but it definitely is a few steps in the right direction (in my opinion). It's not the classic style of Coheed and Cambria that I fell in love with all those years ago but it seems to want to be.

The first single from the album "Domino the Destitute" is probably the best track off the album. There's no real meat to chew on here, the songs aren't anything too new or exciting from the band. It's not even that long (only 40 minutes compared to previous albums which have been over an hour long) but I'm attributing that to this being one half of a whole. I'm hoping the second half (Descention) will hold some of the classic riffs and seamless song writing that we got in their older albums

Worth buying, if you've liked their previous albums. If this is your first Coheed and Cambria album I'd suggest starting with something else such as "Keeping secrets" or "Fear Through the Eyes of Madness"
