Week of 1/19/2011
Reviews in 140 are comic reviews in 140 characters or less; done this way to satisfy a world of Twitter-fied readers who want a quick overview of a comic and a rating so they can decide if it’s worth buying at the store each week.
Book of the week!
Infinite Vacation (#1) – 8/10
A high concept story with colorful art that makes your eyes melt with joy. If the story doesn’t get weighed down by brainy stuff, I’m in.
Morning Glories (#6) – 7/10
Instead of the new mystery being solved we get another character and a reveal that is more of a head-scratcher than a mouth-dropper.
The Amazing Spider-Man (#652) – 6.5/10
For beings called Spider Slayers, Smythe and co. sure have a hard time slaying anyone, or appearing menacing in any way.
