Quick Hits: Reviews of Huntress #1, Animal Man #2 and more…

Huntress #1

on October 09, 2011

1 Comment

Huntress #1: For those of us who sighed and shook our heads at books like Voodoo and Catwoman over the last few weeks, Huntress is a breath of fresh air. The Huntress takes a trip to Italy on the trail of gun-runners whose wares are being shipped to Gotham City, and along the way discovers that the equal-opportunity smugglers are engaging in a bit of human trafficking and sex slavery, too. — more

The Savage Hawkman is exactly what I hoped to get from DC’s New 52 titles. I don’t know squat about Hawkman. I know that I’ve seen him somewhere, and I think there might be a race of Hawkpeople that keep getting reincarnated, but I couldn’t have told you that without being shown a picture. If you had asked me who he was on a game show I would have said he is the title character from Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law. But that’s ok, right? Because the New 52 is all about giving readers an easy in to all the characters that have been around forever. And I think Tony Daniel and Philip Tan do a great job of hosting new readers. — more

Blackhawks was, I swear to God, one of the first comics I ever read. See, I got into comics because when my grandfather would visit, he’d bring me a whole stack of his old silver age DC books. They were all in terrible condition, yellowing pages and flaking covers, but fuck that, the important thing was that they were chock full of DC’s particular brand of 1960s insanity. — more

I, Vampire #1

Honestly, I kind of admire how shamelessly DC is jumping on the vampire bandwagon. I worry it’s a little too late — okay, I don’t really worry, in that I don’t exactly care one way or the other — but I really can’t help but smile at the audacity of it.

What we have here is the story of a couple vampires poised to become a whole lot of vampires. — more

Teen Titans #1

It’s all right here. Teens. Are. Dangerous. Won’t someone get these teens, or their hormones, under control? Gosh, these teens! I don’t know what to do with them!

Ok ok. I know. This is the territory I’m in. If you’re going to write a storyline where teens come together to form a superhero team, it’s got to focus on how teen superheroes would behave in the world. And writer Scott Lobell does a decent job framing the issue with a global epidemic of metahuman teenagers taking law into their own hands (hell, I’d do it too), which leads Robin, now Red Robin (aka Tim Drake) to form a team to keep these pesky teens under control. — more

Ah, Catwoman, one of my favorite villians revamped. Though I’m sure re-doing an already good thing is always quite hard, there’s definitely not much competition between this book and any other past comic. — more
