  THE DUCK KNIGHT RETURNS Darkwing Duck #1-5 (BOOM!, $3.99) By Adam Prosser Nowadays we tend to think of “superheroes” and “cartoons” as quite distinct from each other, but for a long time that wasn’t really the case. Both were originally aimed at the same young audience, and both featured lighthearted worlds where just about anything can...

  STRANGE TALES TAKES MARVEL EVEN FURTHER OFF THE BEATEN PATH Strange Tales II #1 (Marvel, $4.99) By Adam Prosser The big superhero publishers have always recruited talent from the indie ranks, but lately Marvel seems to have gone wild with the idea, with the current generation of writers and artists at the House of Ideas including a record number of small-press and...

  THIS FANTASTIC FOUR ONE-SHOT IS DESIGNED ONLY FOR FUN Fantastic Four in…Ataque Del M.O.D.O.K. One-Shot (Marvel, $3.99) By Adam Prosser There are two kinds of superhero fans: those who like MODOK, and those who don’t. To one group, he’s an embarrassment, a representative of all the goofy, ridiculous schlock that keeps superheroes from being taken...

  DEATH COMES TO METROPOLIS Lex Luthor’s Action Comics #893 (DC, $3.99) By Adam Prosser This comic is notable for two big reasons. The first is that it represents the first appearance of Death in a main-line DC comic. No, I don’t mean it’s the first time anyone’s died in a DC comic, I mean it’s the first appearance of a certain...

  IMMIGRANT SONG Thor #615 (Marvel Comics, $3.99) By Devon Sanders I never thought I'd see the day where Thor would become a true franchise character. Once relegated to The Avenger's resident "strong guy," not much was ever truly expected of The God of Thunder. Sure; he had his moments. You could always count on his to do something god-like such as... umm... swinging...

Ah, Labor Day. BBQs, a night of drinking with your friends before school starts, maybe one last trip to the cottage...oh, and a delayed shipping schedule for comics! (In case you were wondering why this column was hitting on Friday.)   BECAUSE REGULAR WOLVERINE JUST WASN’T DARK ENOUGH, APPARENTLY Daken: Dark Wolverine #1 (Marvel, $3.99) By Adam Prosser If...

Before we begin this week's column, just wanted to give a quick tip of the hat to Worlds Collide Comics (Oshawa, Ontario) and Comic Book Addiction (Whitby, Ontario) for helping me write this column with free sample copies and moral support. A couple of very cool stores that definitely deserve your patronage, if you're in the area--friendly, professional and well-run. (And while we're on...

  Hey folks, just wanted to pop in before this week's reviews and say thanks for keeping up with our little 4-color corner of JoBlo.com, and for putting up with our ongoing struggle with Canadian spelling. Also the lack of boobs. As you may have noticed last week, we've made some changes to the column, chief among them being a move to Thursday--which makes a lot more sense,...

GUY’S NIGHT OUT: ‘WARRIORS’ DELIVERS Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #1 (DC Comics, $2.99) By Devon Sanders Guy Gardner, the Green Lantern everyone has an opinion on, returns to semi-solo glory in Green Lantern: Emerald Gladiators #1 .

  Ultimate Avengers 2 #6 of 6 (Marvel, $3.99) By Jeb D. One of the interesting things about the almost accidental success and survival of Marvel’s Ultimate Universe is the contrast in styles between the two writers who established it. Brian Bendis is the adult fanboy, looking back on his ten year old self (or eight, or twelve—whatever was the point...
