Quick Comic Reviews - Marvel Knights Hulk: Transforme

Even as a Hulk fan I was on the fence about picking this trade up. It just didn't really look all that appealing to me. Now, I think I could have skipped it. I didn't find the story all that interesting. I wasn't impressed by the art or the writing. It wasn't a bad series, just not that good in my opinion. I don't necessarily regret picking it up, but I could have done without reading it. It doesn't make my recommended reading list.

Quick Comic Reviews: The Manhattan Projects Volume 4

This book continues to be full of crazy. And just when you think you might know where it's going, it goes somewhere else. It makes a path you just don't see coming. It's violent, it's silly, and it's not for everyone but I'm enjoying the ride.

Quick Comic Reviews: Common Grounds

This collection of superhero short stories caught my eye when I saw one of the stories ("Time of their Lives") on Tumblr. The stories are written by Troy Hickman and drawn by an assortment of very talented artists including George Perez, Michael Oeming, Dan Jurgens, Chris Bachalo, and several others. It's a great anthology that is definitely worth checking out. It places pretty high on my recommended reading list and I'm very happy that I was able to track down a copy.

Quick Comic Reviews: Marvel's The Emerald City of Oz

I've really enjoyed this series, mostly due to Skottie Young's artwork throughout. I've felt the later books weren't quite as solid storywise but still enjoyable. This one was a bit better but the ending really hit me. Really glad Marvel published these and I'm really happy to have them all sitting on my shelves as I'm sure I'll pull them out to reread them from time to time.

Quick Comic Reviews: Revival Volume 3

I've enjoyed this series from the start. The writing, the art, the characters, the scenarios that come up, all great stuff. But at the same time I've felt things were all being put out there with not much in the way of resolution. I had been hoping some of the story threads would start to come together at some point so I was glad that this volume really moved some things along. I'm even more engaged after having finished this volume and am eagerly awaiting volume 4.
