ROBOTECH (2017) ISSUE 13 REVIEW WITH SPOILERS

Warning of Spoilers!

  The recap feels a little vast, but is good for those just jumping onto this series. As for the color palette and font choice the only thing to say about them is they are still arguably good. Though the art is good it does have a noticeable case of "broken back syndrome" with Claudia having a "boobs and butt" pose. The story itself excels by having a number of well-written developments for each plot line. However, the moment when Beetrai apparently identifies Kyhron is not clear enough.

  In conclusion this series is still doing high-quality mysteries and resolutions. Also it's diverging just enough now to be considered its own thing. Thus I think non-fans can enjoy it without seeing the anime.

NINJA-K ISSUE 12 REVIEW WITH SPOILERS

Warning of potential spoilers!

   The summary has some information that is unnecessary for this particular issue. However, it may still be relevant information to those who are jumping in after an absence. As for the story it is compelling and able to stand on its own merits. Though the flashback sequence feels like something that should have just come earlier. While the art and colors are, too an extent, over-reliant on shadows and dark colors they are still quality work. Finally the font choice beautifully compliments the level of detail for the visuals.

NINJA-K VOLUME 2 THE COALITION MINI-REVIEW NO SPOILERS

This collected edition is well put together. Being a collected work slightly improves the pacing of the whole story. However, pacing could have probably been improved more with the regular covers being moved to the gallery section. Though the only new flaw is the spoiler found in the story summary on the back of this edition. That said this is still an overall great story arc.

RECOMMENDED COMICS LIST OF 4 THE OTHER WIDOW EDITION

Warning of Potential Spoilers in entries 1 and 4!


1. The Flash #324 (1983) has a lot of great page layouts. Also the characterization of Professor Zoom is rather fun in its oddness. Not to mention that most of the characters act, or react, logically. Though the characterization of Fiona Webb could be stronger. The only really flawed part is the brief bit with a Guardian of the Universe.

2. Black Widow: Pale Little Spider #2 (2002) is a decent comic that almost stands on its own. The line work is good, and the story is suspenseful.

3. Black Widow: Pale Little Spider #3 (2002) has some odd fight choreography. Also there is one case of "broken back syndrome." However, the art has very strong line work and good layouts. Though the ending is a bit unsatisfactory it does service the overall story.

4. Marvel Adventures: Super Heroes (2009) #7 is a decent telling of the early adventures of Thor. The art is very consistent, and the colors are bright. Finally we get Loki apparently ea…

WAR MACHINE ISSUE 11 (1995) REVIEW WITH SPOILERS

Warning of Spoilers!

A decent amount of pages are just recapping previous events. This causes the narrative to have uneven pacing. Though once the middle is reached the story is somewhat engaging. As for the art there are some odd proportions, and feet are poorly drawn. I also think the premise of James Rhodes being the head of a peace-keeping organization while being War Machine is horrendous. This is due to how he essentially is jeopardizing their credibility by acting as judge and jury, and possibly executioner.

   Not recommended, unless you want to read a very thought-provoking letter in the letters page.

NOT RECOMMENDED COMICS LIST OF 4 CYBERSPACE WARLOCK EDITION

1. Cyberspace 3000 #7 (1994) is very confusing as to what is going on. By that I mean there is no explanation of who anyone is or where they are in time/space. Yes, Adam Warlock is recognizable to a lot of readers, but that is only one character. As for the art there are backgrounds missing, and a lot of ugly, angular artwork. Finally the color palette is poorly chosen.

2. Flash Gordon #7 (1967) has several stories and each of them feels weak. The Flash Gordon stories are the most engaging, but lack consistency in sequencing. Also every story, including the text, comes to a somewhat abrupt ending. Finally the text story is the only story that seems thought out. Not recommended unless you are a die-hard fan of the characters Flash Gordon and Agent X-9.

3. New Mutants #1 (2009) provides very little idea of what this team's purpose is supposed to be. Also there are two characters who have "broken back syndrome" on the cover. Lastly, while the story is okay it is not engagin…
