RECENT COMICS ROUNDUP
I've loved Hawkman since I was a kid (largely thanks to Joe Kubert's stunning work on the character in the 1960's), so I figured I'd check this out. I did not buy it after reading in the store because it was so fucking boring, and in the three short days since reading it I've already forgotten what it was about. I give this a few months at best.
JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #1
ALL-STAR WESTERN #1
Is anyone else reminded of THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS-era Frank Miller by this art?
The fun with the "Spider Island" arc continues but at this point I recommend waiting for the collected edition.
SPIDER-ISLAND: DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU #2 (0f 3)
Nothing earth-shattering but it's Shang-Chi, therefore I'll continue to read it.
Another boring issue and yet I keep buying this series in hope that it will get better. I'll give this one more month to win me back, and if it doesn't, then I'm out.
KICK-ASS 2 #4
