Comic Book Reviews


Uncanny X-Men #501
Written by Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction
Art by Greg Land

It’s very rare in comics when they decide to take a character or characters out of their regular surrounding. So when it was announced that the X-Men would be moving for the east coast (up state New York) to the west coast (the Bay Area) everyone was intrigued.

The X-titles have never had a hard time getting fans especially after 3 movies. So why change the formula? Who knows honestly, all we can expect is new and interesting stories.

Most feel that we will get those because the two writers, Brubaker and Fraction, have been in the business of shaking up stasis quo’s and this one is just what the doctor ordered.

Legion of 3 Worlds #1
Written by Geoff Johns
Art by George Perez and Scott Koblish

Out of that crisis’s that DC Comics have had the last few years, it’s amazing that anyone can get excited about anything that has to do with the destruction of the universe.

Well, color me shock when I found out that DC was doing a tie-in that I was actually excited about.

The story is actually the continuing saga of Earth Prime Superboy’s journey to find his perfect earth. What started more then a decade ago, looks like it could finally come to an end in the far future.

Superboy, after being blown to the future, wakes and finds that he is in the future of the Legion of Super Villains and he is their savior. Meanwhile in another dimension the Legion of Superheroes contacts Superman in the past and brings him forward in time to help them stop Superboy.

Confused? Well don’t be, Geoff Johns is a fantastic writer who is known to weave fantastic comic book tales and with legendary artist George Perez on pencils this mini will be out of this world.
