Without opportunity for a lot of interaction/dialogue or personal thoughts/caption/thought bubbles, I think we’re missing a lot of such stuff.

T’Challa doesnt wonder about Shuri, Peter Parker doesnt mention Aunt May or MJ, Miles is the only one who actually despairs.

The psychology of Doom makes for some good reading, and Secret Wars will stand as one of the definitive Doom stories.
Did you also notice how there really isn’t any other Reed Richards in all of Battleworld? It makes Sue Richards’ wonder about him very palpable. Perhaps a love story in the making. However, despite being poised as the big counterweight against Doom, the knight for Sue, and etc…. Richards doesn’t really get a lot of billing. Just a speech to wonder about and shame Doom. The guy can’t even stand upright in most panels. I hope Mr Fantastic will get a stronger showing if indeed he’s meant to be so prominent against Doom.

Comment on Howard the Duck #1 by Dannyhttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2015/03/15/howard-duck-1/#comment-38378 Thu, 02 Jul 2015 02:40:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=45657#comment-38378 Nope, I gotta disagree. “Mockery” is a good word for it. There’s a huge difference between satire and outright mockery, and Howard always shined when it was more of the former. A lot of it comes from context– if that kind of joke was in a comic like What The–?! or MAD Magazine or something, I would probably have appreciated it more. But if Howard is to be in the Marvel universe, then those characters have to stay true to their basic nature and not be caricatures to the point of being mean-spirited.

Zdarsky’s unrelenting mockery of Spiderman has been the highlight of the series so far.

Comment on Aquaman #41 by Steve Baumhttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2015/06/30/aquaman-41/#comment-38375 Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:21:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=46740#comment-38375 Too bad. New 52 Aquaman was one of the success stories. I was never a fan before, but after seeing my daughter loving it and putting it at the top of her own pull list, I gave it a try and was pleasantly surprised. She shows no interest in the “new” Aquaman. Why fix what isn’t broken?

Comment on Batman #41 by Steve Baumhttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2015/06/17/batman-41/#comment-38374 Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:03:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=46627#comment-38374 Yeah. . .not much of an actual review there. It’s nice that DC is willing to take some pretty big chances with their flagships, but to tell the truth, I’m beginning to wonder if maybe Snyder and Capullo haven’t jumped the shark and reviewers don’t want to admit it. After all. . .just HOW much more deconstruction of the Batman mythos before it isn’t even a Batman book any more? It started going toward the line with “Batman Incorporated” and hasn’t shown any signs of stopping since. The exploration of Batman being larger than Bruce Wayne is fine, but when do reviewers admit it’s finally gone too far?

Comment on Kaptara #3 by Dannyhttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2015/06/28/kaptara-3/#comment-38373 Tue, 30 Jun 2015 01:25:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=46720#comment-38373 I think I know what you mean. The first two issues there was a Certain Something that just kept it just a bit short from being really engaging, and I think the problem is the main character with whom we are supposed to identify with. Keith, frankly, isn’t someone I really care about. I really enjoyed this issue in spite of Keith and for the reason that it looks like for the first time there is a really ensemble cast. That also gives the development a place to go– it’s a team book, really– so maybe we’ll see more situational comedy as we go forward.

Comment on Black Canary #1 by daustinhttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2015/06/20/black-canary-1/#comment-38372 Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:49:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=46647#comment-38372 Wu and Loughridge do terrific work here, but the plotting was very by the numbers. Felt like the first episode of an 80s cartoon. Going to need to see some serious improvement if I’m going to stick around – I think Batgirl and Gotham Academy nailed it much better right out of the gate.
By the way, don’t know if you guys are still following Secret Six, but issue 3 was a massive improvement over 1 and 2. Dale Eaglesham has really leveled up, and brought Simone along for the ride.
