Lazarus #1Lazarus #1
Written by Greg Rucka
Art and Letters by Michael Lark
Color by Santi Arcas
Cover by Michael Lark
Image Comics
Release Date: June 26, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

A new series from Image Comics and it’s written by Greg Rucka? Yes, please. That’s pretty much how it went, to be honest. I’m a long time fan of Image and the great books they turn out. And as for Rucka…well, duh. It’s Greg freaking Rucka! Geez, like you needed to ask. I am super stoked to be able to introduce you to Lazarus #1. We’ve been hearing a lot about it for a few months now and it’s finally out this week! So read on, my friends. Read on.

This is the story of a young woman named Forever. She exists in a world where turmoil and war have turned the world into a financial battleground. Discarding politics and geographic lines, the ruling families hold immense power based on money and fear. If you can show usefulness then you and yours are provided for, if you serve no purpose then you are Waste. Each family puts all their resources, training and tech into one person who is outfitted and trained to defend the family in this hostile environment. Because of the near supernatural abilities they attain, these individuals are referred to as the family’s Lazarus. And for the Carlyle family, that person is Forever.

G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #2G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #2
Written by Mike Costa
Pencils by Antonio Fuso
Inks by Emilio Lecce
Colors by Arianna Florean
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Consulting Editor: John Barber
Editor: Carlos Guzman
Covers by Michael Lark, Antonio Fuso and Dan Matutina
IDW Publishing
Release Date: May 22, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #2 is all around a great comic. It’s heavy on the talking, a little light on the action, but all in all, it serves it’s purpose by being both interesting AND entertaining.

Mike Costa writes an issue here, that’s a LOT of set up, and you can tell that, when it hits, the payoff is going to be HUGE. He does some really great character work here. You’ve got the Chameleon, Flint, Lady Jaye and others trying to figure out what the first Cobra Commander’s son, Billy, does and doesn’t know about the Cobra organization. One thing that I wasn’t quite clear on, is just WHY they think Billy is such a threat to national security. But, I’m guessing that that will come out in a future issue. Overall, it’s a very interesting issue.

Release Date: April 10, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Wow! G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #1 is probably one of my favorite books going right now! And, it’s only on it’s first issue. That’s setting the bar pretty high for any future issues, guys.

Mike Costa returns to write the book that focuses on the G.I. Joe team that’s taking it undercover to Cobra. They have set themselves deep undercover — and I mean DEEP undercover. In fact, I don’t know how they’re going to find their way back at this point. The book has a very small cast of characters, and that’s one of the things that I like about it. Along with all the espionage, intrigue, and awesomeness. I don’t want to reveal any spoilers, and unfortunately, anything that I say about the book’s story can be considered an actual spoiler. Save it to say, if you liked Costa’s last G.I. Joe series, you’ll love this one!

Comic Review: Amazing Spider-Man #641

Spider-ManAmazing Spider-Man #641
Written by Joe Quesada
Art by Paolo Rivera and Joe Quesada, Danny Miki and Richard Isanove
Letters by Joe Caramagna
Price: $3.99
Marvel Comics
Release date: September 9, 2010

At the time of its release, Marvel’s decision to make Peter Parker single again after years of being married to Mary-Jane Watson was met with mixed emotions at best. Many felt that the story told in “One More Day” was inconsistent with previous Spider-Man stories, especially the part where Peter makes a deal with Mephisto to rescue his Aunt May, which many thought was too cosmic, or out there a concept to appear in the more street-level Spider-Man. Others wondered why Marvel felt that an unmarried Spider-Man is so much more superior to a married one. Over the last four issues, we have been revisiting the “One More Day” storyline in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man, with a story called “One Moment in Time,” brought to us by writer and Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. Amazing Spider-Man #641 brings the storyline to a close, which is a good thing, because this was pretty much a completely unnecessary story that went on for three issues too long.

Artists: Michael Lark & Stefano Gaudiano
Art Assist: Matt Southworth
Colorist: Matt Hollingsworth
Letterer: Joe Caramanga
Marvel Comics
Price: $3.99
Release date: June 23, 2010

Amazing Spider-Man has been one of the most consistently entertaining books Marvel has put out since the Brand New Day relaunch, and with Amazing Spider-Man #635 we are coming to the close of the second major story arc in the book. When Marvel changed the format of the book to the three times a month release schedule, they wisely decided to spend the first year introducing some new villains and telling the overarching story of the Spider-tracer killer. Once that story was done, the made another wise decision to refocus on some of Spidey’s more classic villains, and that’s what we’ve been seeing for the last several months with “The Gauntlet” storyline which is reaching is conclusion with “The Grim Hunt.”
