on comics, anyway. I still have a few serious book reviews to post, but they may have to wait until Christmas break. Terms papers are coming due very, very soon.
However, I have a few spare moments to do mini-reviews of comics I purchased this week:
Supergirl #3: Why do I even bother? Supergirl used to be a very interesting character (back in the 80s and 90s). But this series stinks, and there's way too much T&A for a comic starring a 15 year old girl.
Robotech: Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles #3: I still have no clue as to what is going on here, but the articles in the back are good and give a reasonably detailed history of why it took so long to get a sequel to the old Robotech series.
Fantastic Four #532: JMS plagarizing himself. Many of the lines of dialogue come straight from JMS's Babylon 5 TV series. It seems he needs to start singing a new tune.
Hulk: Destruction #4: Peter David finally gives us a Hulk/Abomination fight, and manages to erase (retcon out of existence) Bruce Jones' entire Hulk run with three lines of dialogue. Amazing.
Marvel Monsters: From the files of Ulysses Bloodstone #1: Set up as a blog, this gives profiles on some of the more famous Monsters from Marvel comics of the 50s and early 60s - the era just before Fantastic Four and Spider-Man changed comics forever. Fun, but light on pictures and heavy on text.
