Reviews in 140: Morning Glories, Echoes, Avengers, Action Comics, Green Lantern

Week of 2/28/2011

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! 
Morning Glories (#7) – 8/10 
Saying there was an unexpected twist is now redundant. But this one makes the reader second-guess whether the school is evil or the kids.


Echoes (#3) – 7/10 
This issue just retreads the previous issue’s plot points rather than move forward to new information. Still chilling, though.

Lex Luthor’s Action Comics (#898) – 7/10 
Lex being greedy for power is nothing new, but hilarity ensues when Larfleeze pops up – despite him being awfully drawn.

The Avengers (#10) – 7/10 
Interesting hiding spots for the gems are a plus for this issue, while the art remains obscure and messy.  

Green Lantern (#62) – 7/10 
Colorful action sets up a conflict with Krona. Still no indication why the GLs will be going to war with each other.



Green Lantern Corps (#57) – 7.5/10 
An unexpected twist makes for a quality book despite a bad Firestorm cameo.
