Weekly Comics - May 28, 2009

Aliens #1 (Good intro, like the characters, like the twist... it's a slow build, which often winds up being a disappointment, but it's a valid choice, given that Alien and Aliens both had effective slow-builds as well. Oh, and beautiful art by Zach Howard)

Batman in Barcelona (Decent little Batman one-off. Nothing super-cool or anything, but good writing, good art, a solid Batman tale for those not interested in all the event-centric Bat stuff of the moment)

Green Lantern #41 (Larfleez is not super-interesting, and I'm not digging this arc as much as the Red Lanterns one... but it hasn't dampened my interest in Blackest Night)

Guardians of the Galaxy #14 (Big giant War of Kings-inspired brawl! Wheeeeeee!!!!)

Incredible Hercules #129 (New story, descending into hell, with a particularly fun take on Marvel's afterlife - feels very much like Dan Slott's Thing or early She-Hulk work in many ways, and that's a good thing)

Nova #25 (Nice culmination of the "rogue Worldmind" story, best issue of the book in a while)

Starcraft #1 (I'm a huge fan of this game, and I only managed to get halfway into this. It doesn't feel much like Starcraft, it feels like generic sci-fi with uninteresting characters - nice art, though)

Usagi Yojimbo #120 (A fantastic one-off with Usagi and the young ninja-in-training Kiyoko doing some detective work)

X-Men Legacy #224 (Well, whadayaknow - somebody finally fixed Rogue. And wrote a story featuring Gambit and Danger where I liked both characters. It's a shame Legacy is one of the lower-selling X-books... for my money, it's probably the best one running)
