Digital Backup Features

The final issue of Alpha Flight (Marvel Comics)

Recently Marvel announced they were canceling three books; Alpha Flight, Iron Man 2.0, and Herc.  While the cancellation of Iron Man 2.0 was excepted, the other two books are fan and critical favorites who just couldn't find an audience.  But is Marvel missing a great chance to keep fans happy?

Reviews for Fear Itself #7, Uncanny X-Men #544, Wonder Woman #2 and more!

Marvel ends one event and starts the aftermath in one week.  DC has another strong week.  Overall, it was a great week to be a fan of comic books.  Many of the books I bought were great reads, and only had minor problems.  Shall we get started?  I think we shall.

Reviews for Ghost Rider #4, Morning Glories #13, and more!

Well, another hectic weekend has kept me from writing long reviews.  After going to Walt Disney World a few weeks ago and being really sick, I plan on writing full reviews next week.

Alpha Flight #5:  I did not like the alien angle at all, but Pak and Van Lente are making it work a lot better this time around.  They add a lot of depth, and give the team some great character moments.  Dale Eaglesham has a few art hiccups though.  Most in the faces of Guardian too.

Alpha Flight #5 gets 3.5/5.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 #2:  Now that Joss isn't writing the book full time, this issue proves if the book can stand.  And it does.  The dialogue is witty, and if I hadn't looked at the cover, I would have sworn that Joss Whedon wrote the book.  George Jeanty's art is the usual bunch.  Sometimes it's hard to tell which characters are which.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 #2 gets 4/5.

Ghost Rider #4:  The ending of this issue leaves me very excited, seeing the two Ghost Riders working together.  I think Adam could have been a villain to come back, but whatever.   Matthew Clark's art is blasting on all cylinders.

Ghost Rider #4 gets 4.5/5.

Green Lantern #2:  Geoff Johns has put this book into a very interesting situation, but let's hope that he uses that situation to the best.  Hal Jordan should have stayed a human longer though.  There was so much potential to explore who Hal Jordan is outside of being a Green Lantern.  Doug Mahnke's art seems a little rushed this issue.

Green Lantern #2 gets 4/5.

Morning Glories #13:  #13 might be the best issue of the series.  Lots of strange things are brought up, and they make me wish it was next month already.  I would like a few answers, but with issues this great, I could really care less if I get them.

Morning Glories #13 gets 5/5.

The Punisher #4 gets 4/5
S.H.I.E.L.D. #3 gets 3.5/5
X-Men: Regenesis #1 gets 3/5
