    Post Weekly Reviews - 14 November 2012 (With Previews)

    Hi.


    This week's reviews thread.
    The previews section is taken from Diamond's page, here:

    ONWARD!



    This is a thread to post some quick one paragraph
    reviews of the week's releases.


    We have the reviews section to come back some time in the
    future, this is more informal and just to get a paragraph of your
    thoughts on the week's releases, and to discuss each other's opinions
    thereafter, if one feels the need.


    Here's the format:
    Title (publisher) # - Rating Out Of 5

    One paragraph review goes here.

    Title (publisher) # - Rating Out Of 5
    One paragraph review goes here.
    Post as much or as little as you like, I'll
    create a new thread each week.

    Put me down for...

    Conan The Barbarian #10 - "The Death" Part 1 of 3 (Dark Horse/ $3.50)

    The Massive #6 - "Black Pacific" Part 3 of 3 (Dark Horse/ $3.50)

    The Walking Dead #104 - Part 2 of 6 (Image/ $2.99)
    I would like nothing more than for Carl to mow down Negan with Abraham's rifle this issue. One can hope...

    Avengers Assemble #9 - Enter: Kelly Sue + Stefano Part 1. (Marvel/ $3.99 NOW!)
    Kelly Sue Deconnick + Stefano Caselli = potential awesome. For $3.99, it had better sing.

    Wolverine & the X-Men #20 - "Frankenstein's Murder Circus" Part 1 (Marvel/ $3.99!)
    Officially added to the pull list, despite the decadent cover price. I may have to crack into me money bin.

    Total: $17.97 + tears.

    What the background of this?
    I read it and only at the end realised it was a side series, which really threw me.
    How did they manage a side series as well?

    Also:

    The preview for this week's Walking Dead is a jaw-dropper. Can't wait to pick up this comic.

    There's one main series.

    There was a 3-part Massive prelude that appeared in Dark Horse Presents last spring.

    Massive #1-3 was the first 3-part arc (can't recall the title offhand).

    Massive #4-6 is the 2nd arc ("Black Pacific" Pt. 1-3).

    Kristian Donaldson drew the Dark Horse Presents preview and then dropped off with Massive # 3 (which was subtitled "Unalaska," iirc).

    Garry Brown is the artist going forward from Massive #4 (Black Pacific Part 1 - The Mog/ Mogadishu).

    Massive #5 ("Antarctica") came out October 10th.

    Now read this post aloud to yourself 50 times to prove that you're not crazy.

    argh.

    Now I'm even more confused.

    Is this book, or was this book, ever an ongoing series?

    I though "The Massive" was an ongoing.
    We're on book 5 or something of that now.

    This "Black Pacific"..... oooooooh ... OK.
    What happened was I looked at the "part three of three" bit and got confused.
    I'll do my best to get something out and about for this.

    Via my contact at BC reviews team ... of course

    Yeah, it's on-going. Each arc just has a little subtitle and chapter title.

    We're on issue 6 now.

    5 was last month.

    Avengers Assemble #9 - 3.5/5 stars
    Marvel/ $3.99


    Even though she's working with a paper-thin plot, Kelly Sue DeConnick does a great job of bringing the overall tone of Joss Whedon's Avengers film to the printed page in her Avengers Assemble debut. It doesn't hurt that she's got uber-artist Stefano Caselli making it look easy (of course, it probably looks "easy" since most of the script finds the Avengers dicking around Stark Tower--- lots of talking heads, though thankfully much less-so than your average Bendis book). Though Black Widow has been swapped out for Spider-Woman, Robert Downey Jr.'s asinine Tony Stark is out in full force, plus there's lots of big screen-style Hulk running around making sandwiches, plus Banner gives a TED lecture that would put Al Gore to sleep.





    While I really appreciated that this comic brought the chuckles, there's no way that I could justify another go-round at $3.99.

    The Walking Dead #104 - 4.5/5 stars
    Image/ $2.99

    After last month's Negan-induced snooze-fest, Kirkman pulls a complete turnaround with what might be the best Walking Dead comic of 2012.

    Carl is most definitely not in the house and things are turn ugly when he follows the bad guys back to their secret hideout. The hideout, which I won't spoil here (although I'm sure it's on Google), is easily one of the most hellish things seen in the series to date, so big kudos to Charlie Adlard for bringing it to life.

    The bad guys, unlike our heroes, clearly are not sponsored by Hyundai...
