Review Express VO – Week Rebirth # 75

The Deathstroke # 25 Coupes, Batman # 34The Top Batman: White Knight # 2The Bane Flop Conquest # 7End of the holidays for some, and the beginning of these for others, there It's time to find out what DC had to offer this week! BOMBSHELLS UNITED # 8 Scenario: Marguerite BennetDrawings: Pascuale Qualano, J. NanjanWhile everything seemed to be on the right track for our heroines, their actions may be reduced to nothing . In this issue, we slowly advance in this war with these young women who want to bring back hope, compassion and love, while the military forces stand up to them. Marguerite Bennett delivers once again a scenario that is both tender and at the same time effective with heroines who are not cold-eyed. It is a real pleasure to read this title, which can sometimes take turns a little surprising but that knows how to arouse a certain interest for the reader, in this case, the reader that I am, and who is quite interested in the cliffhanger delivered at the end of the number. It reads quickly, without ambition, without a second thought. Just let yourself be carried away and appreciate the values ​​for which the bombshells fight to counter the darkness of men. And, that's pretty too! Yes, it helps a lot.DASTARDLY AND MUTTLEY # 3Scenario: Garth EnnisDrawings: Alain MauricetThe War Pig One phenomenon has taken on a global dimension, causing ever more chaos on its way, without anyone knowing what it is. In short, basically, this issue does not really advance the plot. We continue to have a pseudo-realistic world struck by a torrent of absurdity, and see the consequences on different characters, like the President of the United States, who is facing the repercussions of his intervention in the Middle East by losing completely control of itself. The number is pleasant, as usual, but mostly based on the drawings of Mauricet and the mystery that hovers over this world. The sequel looks rather interesting, especially with a comparison with the original version of our characters, but we must hope that we learn a little more about the phenomenon, in order to have a sense of progress. GOTHAM CITY GARAGE # 9 Scenario: Collin Kelly, Jackson LanzingDrawings: Carmen Carnero, Trish MulvihillWhen this one, I was waiting for it. And I'm happy to see Batgirl again in this issue. The parallel between Kara and Babs is very touching, and if it's not tearful because it's not the goal, it's realistic and although things are moving for the better, they are also advancing for the worse. Now, I regret the final decision of Kara that makes us fall back on his terrible character, but deep down, I was waiting for the revelation of Babs so I can do the impasse (a little) on it. It is very fast, but since the series runs in very short arcs, it is necessary to manage to condense everything and it is a successful bet for this issue. The next promises to be more action-oriented and darker, and I'm pretty curious to see how the team will turn the events. Will they let go of an unbearable Kara in nature? Where will we have for once a supposed action on his part? HARLEY & IVY MEET BETTY AND VERONICA # 2Scenario: Paul Dini, Mark AndreykoDrawings: Laura BragaNan Nan Nan. Already that the first issue was quite heavy, it served at least one thing, it presented us a minimum the history and stakes of the mission of Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. Here, it's just a youth party, costume issues, a Zatanna out of the hat, and then there you go. Ah yes no, it's bunting the bun, it tries to flirt, nothing progresses and the final that wants to be awesome is not worth anything. We know that we will be entitled to even more numbers of a length of this kind, and that the themes will be so deep that a chip would not even drown. Seriously, luckily Laura Braga is there to facilitate reading with her beautiful boards, because then the rest, I do not adhere at all. But then not at all.INJUSTICE 2 # 30Screening: Tom TaylorDrawings: Mike S. MillerNew episode for Injustice 2 that focuses its action on the island of Themyscira, which hosts our protagonist of the moment, Kara Zor-El, aka Supergirl. Our friend will discover the new local organization, since the imprisonment of Diana, the former Wonder Woman, which seems to divide the population. Tom Taylor once again signs an efficient and properly constructed number, which has the merit of showing us a side of the Injustice universe that is rarely honored. We can regret the slow pace of this story, which is likely to spread over many episodes, but the characterization of the characters is so successful that we absolutely can not find this comic book unpleasant. The drawings are of quality, and one can only recognize in this respect a kind of modern elseworld, which rivals the classics of this old range.BANE CONQUEST # 7Scenario: Chuck DixonDrawings: Graham Nolan, Gregory WrightThe Naja-Naja is dead. After all that. After all these numbers. For a fall of scale. Really ? But really? Well, the quest of Bane and his friends starts from scratch, and as each issue, they end up being doubled. It's long. It is heavy. It's uninteresting. We have gone over half of this miniseries and honestly can not wait for it to be over. This series is only a snake biting its tail and sorry for the pun. Bring a bit of novelty, an issue, because here it's just empty. Violence for a story that frankly does not plunge us in, but then not at all. And then let's be realistic, a normal two-day-old baby who goes on a chase, shots and screams, without crying, without being supported by the back of the neck, it's a vegetable huh. Even that annoys me. BATMAN # 34Scenario: Tom KingDrawings: Joëlle JonesSuite of the bow with a number that reads very, very fast. It's simple: fight from start to finish, but the dynamics remain excellent. The exchanges between Batman and Catwoman are a fair enough humor. We begin to glimpse the purpose of the mission and it's quite intriguing. On the other side, we find Dick and Damian, with sublime dialogues. King excels at this exercise. And let's not talk about Jones delivering beautiful boards to the exemplary layout. In short, the Batman series continues its good momentum, but will require once again a reading collected to be really appreciated. BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT # 2Scenario: Sean MurphyDrawings: Sean MurphyThen this one, I was waiting for him. And I'm happy to see Batgirl again in this issue. The parallel between Kara and Babs is very touching, and if it's not tearful because it's not the goal, it's realistic and although things are moving for the better, they are also advancing for the worse. Now, I regret the final decision of Kara that makes us fall back on his terrible character, but deep down, I was waiting for the revelation of Babs so I can do the impasse (a little) on it. It is very fast, but since the series runs in very short arcs, it is necessary to manage to condense everything and it is a successful bet for this issue. The next promises to be more action-oriented and darker, and I'm pretty curious to see how the team will turn the events. Will they let go of an unbearable Kara in nature? Where will we have for once a supposed action on his part? CYBORG # 18 Scenario: John Semper, Jr.Drawings: Will ConradCyborg, it's a little bit the title that tries to distract us, but who, despite all his good will, is just wasting time. Fortunately, this is what the word entertainment means in its Pascalian sense. This is unfortunately disappointing and we are just re-reading the same thing since the launch of the solo title dedicated to the friend Vic, who is still struggling to convince. We regret this heavy writing that still hesitates between the techno-thriller and the bad TV movie from Syfy, and a characterization trowel, which shames the glorious period of Teen Titans Wolfman or Johns. Only the drawings are a little level, but it does not save the ship from the wreckage.ADADMAN # 1Scenario: Neal adamsDessins: Neal AdamsDeadman is back this week for the first issue of his new mini-series by Neal Adams. This issue is rich and complex enough to deliver in just 32 pages the story of Deadman, Boston Brand and his brother, and Batman, and Gordon, and Sensei. Yes a lot of people in few pages which can give a feeling a bit rough at times. We do not really know who is who, who does what, for what reason. I hope that the suite will lighten up a little more for a softer reading. I liked that number a lot, but I would have preferred Neal Adams to take the time to set up his story before giving it to us all at once. Even so, it is true that going directly into the action of the number is very pleasant and the twists about Batman are surprising. On the other hand, far from me the idea to say that this number is bad because it is not it, but it is not either génialissime. This is a good first issue, which makes you want to read more, but I expected to be more interested than I am currently. And then, unfortunately, I loved the last mini-series Deadman (Dark Mansion Fobbiden Love) so suddenly, this number seems really very messy. It's a shame.DEATHSTROKE # 25Scenario: Christopher PriestDrawings: Carlo PagulayanDeathstroke vs. The Society. A very good number. Priest invites us to take an interest in the change made by Deathstroke: did he really go into the camp of the Gentiles? So it's a trial-like episode we're witnessing. Deathstroke is accused of no longer being "bad". In this trial he is defended by a lawyer who is none other than the Riddler. A superbly written Riddler, which will be put in opposition to the one missed by Tom King. This is a rather barred number, with a subtext that smudges the passage with humor this trend of making villains nice. Fun and interesting, this oversized number allows us to have a good time, all superbly illustrated by a Pagulayan in shape that offers very nice things.GREEN ARROW # 34Scenario: Benjamin PercyDrawings: Stephen ByrneBen Percy offers us for this Green Arrow # 34 a story much less intriguing than its first part. Apart from an anecdotal threat in the middle of the story, the rest will only consist of exposure. However, we are entitled to some revelations, but the lack of emotions in the dialogues does not allow us to be enthusiastic as we should. In addition, if Stephen Byrne does some good work on this issue, I find it well below Segovia who worked on the previous one. The sequence of events can always bring something good, but it will do better than that. GREEN LANTERNS # 34Scenario: Tim SeeleyDrawings: Ronan CliquetWho hoped that the change of screenwriter would be profitable to Green Lanterns, here I am. Second part of the introductory arc of Tim Seeley who pursues this half-cosmic adventure half-anecdotal filled with aliens who we do not care a bit, with side by side with the life of Simon and Jessica who have trouble finding a job. And I will not make you an affront to you guessing "why", if you follow the title so far you will know what characterization springs Seeley relies on and it is using it. To believe that in fact there is not a writer who really knows what to say about these two Green Lanterns, and it's a little sad. So it's a really good number, that you'll have forgotten five minutes after reading and whose writing is not even very interesting. The drawing of Ronan Cliquet is also some despite some small ideas of rather amusing construction designs. As much as it can be nice to have bows that do not take the head to want to reinvent everything, so much here, the disinterest in reading is really damaging to this universe. JUSTICE LEAGUE # 32Scenario: Robert VendittiDrawings: Liam SharpArc Bats ouf of Hell continues as members of the Justice League are around the world. This time, we are entitled to the point of view of Cyborg on this second part, where we learn a little more about the intentions of one of the Evil Batmen. Between cliché and action, the Robert Venditti issue manages to find a certain balance. The characters are well used and the author plays well on the weaknesses of our heroes. Liam Sharp is also very pleased on the boards that are clearly very beautiful and I personally loved the aquatic part dedicated to Aquaman with Mera who consumed too much gluten. Now, it is obvious that we are entitled to small details a bit exaggerated as the Flashmobile history to remind us that Bruce Wayne is behind all Evil Batmen. And then, there is the party with Wonder Woman that sounds pretty fair even if the customization of Merciless seems weaker than under the pen of Peter J Tomasi in his one-shot. That said, this character is still the most interesting to date and the others are not really developed or interesting. NIGHTWING # 32Scenario: Tim SeeleyDrawings: Scott Eaton, Miguel MendoncaCasino Royal face to face between Raptor and Nightwing and a game of Blackjack while Shawn and his friends investigate the plans of Raptor.And that's pretty cool. We can have a different perspective on the death of Grayson parents than we have been serving for years and suddenly it makes the reminder of the drama less annoying than expected. The verbal battle between the two protagonists is smoothly led by a Tim Seeley in form and the whole is accompanied by better designs than previously especially on the faces, even if sometimes some are chelou, and it's still what we'll see Furthermore. The Run Offs are not anecdotal and make their presence back up from the beginning more interesting. Especially when we draw parallels with what Raptor and Dick say about the population of Bludhaven. I appreciate Raptor's justified motives which are broken by Dick afterwards. This is really a character that I love especially when I hear (yes, for me he lives when I read his adventures) disassemble Raptor and give his vision of things. What a hero.A little episode that is good and we needed to inflate the plot that skated.- James Edge GraysonNote: 7.5 / 10SUPERMAN # 34Scenario: Peter Tomasi, Patrick GleasonDrawings: Ed Benes, Doug Mahnke, Jack HerbertThe title Superman takes a direction unfortunately expected, and the following looks as unsurprising. One wavers between the interesting situations, and the cases already seen. Whether writing or planks, this all takes the form of a classic science fiction comics from the 90s. The most important weak point is a cruel lack of character for each character present in this number. Only the case of Lois Lane could be interesting, see, who knows, a status quo somewhat disturbed thereafter. A very slim hope given the disappointing twist of the last bows. The graphic part catches the whole thing with the presence of Ed Benes, and this intelligent distribution of an artist dedicated to each main character. Expected delay calculated, this solution is most pleasant, by the product sense that it is the script cutting as the transition from one style to another. In the end, a number changing the plot, but leaving some concern about the intentions of the authors, and directions that can take the story.
