Weekly Comics - April 22, 2009

Buck Rogers #0 (Nice art, solid enough sci-fi action, occasionally cliched dialogue but an interesting enough start)

Detective Comics #853 (After a two-week wait, this probably would have been a pretty solid little story. After two months, it can't help but feel a little small, and a little disappointing. It's good, and I'm glad I read it, but I don't see myself buying the hardcover)

Guardians of the Galaxy #13 (Great tie-in to War of Kings, love the expanded team)

Incredible Hercules #128 (All-out superbrawl with the Dark Avengers, the Greek Gods and our heroes... fun!)

re: Detective -- Just fine. Can we stop the comics-as-metaphor shit now and get back to superhero stories please?
re: Buck Rogers -- The art was pretty, but I didn't think it helped tell the story very well. Also, I didn't much care for Buck. I'm far from sold.
And Supergirl 40 -- An unexpected reveal, hopefully the explanation will make some sense. I truly wish you were on board the Superbooks, I think you'd be pleasantly surprised.
