Quick comic book reviews, for the week of 8/19/09
Some mini-reviews on some comics from this week, including Archie #600, Superman: Blackest Night #1, Supergirl #44 and Wolverine: Weapon X #4.
Archie #600 - Archie gets engaged! It seems like it’s sort of a What If? or It’s A Wonderful Life kind of scenario, though. Written by Michael Uslan and drawn by Stan Goldberg, this was a perfectly accessible Archie issue that was fun to read. Upon graduation from college, Archie realizes his friends are going their separate ways, and somewhat impulsively proposes to Veronica. Looking forward to how it progresses, and if there is in fact a follow-up in which Archie marries Betty.
Blackest Night Superman #1: I’ve heard mixed reviews on this one, and I can see why. Overall, I thought James Robinson’s Superman tie-in to Blackest Night worked, but the hickery of Smallville was a little over the top. Also, the Supergirl/New Krypton pages seemed very crammed, whereas earlier pages seemed almost too languid. So, some things I didn’t like, but worth checking out if you’re reading Blackest Night to see the return of some Super-characters.
