I decided to take a break from the “best of” stuff to write up 3 short reviews of Thor #604, New Avengers # 59 and Justice League of America #39:
The Asgardians now aware of Doom’s macabre experiments launch an assault on Castle Doom. Doom unleashes his “god” doombots and Thor arrives and promises to teach Dr. Doom a lesson. I am looking forward to that “lesson” next month. Solid art, good pacing, lots of action. I give it a 7 out of 10.
New Avengers #59:
The New Avengers with a little help from some other friends attempt to rescue Luke Cage from the clutches of Norman Osbourne and H.A.M.M.E.R. It was nice seeing the Avengers kicking butt for a change. The overarching Dark Reign status drags on though. I’m glad Marvel is finally ending it next year. I give this issue 6 out of 10.
Justice League Of America #39:
The League battles Black Lanterns in this Blackest Night tie in. As with anything Blackest Night related it is a fun and creepy ride. Not to mention we get to see Black Lantern Dr. Light in this issue. I thought he was despicable when he was alive…. 8 out of 10.
