Reviews in 140: Moon Knight, Fear Itself, and more!

Week of 5/5/2011

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.

Book of the week!

Moon Knight (#1) - 8/10
Despite the overuse of Logan, Cap, and Spidey, this makes the character feel fresh and exciting.

X-Men: Prelude to Schism (#1) - 8/10
A thoughtful look back at Scott and Prof X and how they've learned from each other since the beginning. Aww.

Fear Itself (#2) - 5/10
A mess of captions and word balloons fail to add flavor to a splintered narrative. So unfocused that a reader would have trouble deciding who to care about, if anyone at all.

Ozma of Oz (#6) - 6.5/10
Ozma is given a fleetingly interesting game to play. This issue fails to capitalize on what could have been a suspenseful ending.
