Dark Horse Comics - New Release Reviews For July 25, 2012 - Page 2
B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth : Exorcism - Issue 2 (of 2)
Awesome. This issue was awesome. Everything was perfect. The only complaint was that this was merely a two issue storyline. The issue is blessed with fantastic art containing great detail and excellent coloring. It was deeply human yet epic is in scope and it's probably the best art team in the B.P.R.D. universe outside of Mike Mignola.
The story is just about perfect. The main character is real, and her struggles reinforce the natural shift she experiences. This issue shows something that's been missing from this universe for a long time. Hope. Ordinary people are finding their inner strength and fighting back against the rising darkness. In the current Hell On Earth storyline, this will be a pivotal story.
Score: 10 out of 10
The Goon - Issue 40
This issue is one of the funniest comics you'll find, right now. Even with the flat middle story about drag racing, it's still one of the better values for your dollar. The humor spans parody, satire, and slap-stick while at the same time, managing to make some powerful commentary about men not being men. The songs that the Hank Williams character sings are fantastic.
Score: 9 out of 10
Mind MGMT - Issue 3
This series is gorgeous. The cover is evocative. Breathtaking. The interior doesn't lag behind. It's sneaky. At first glance, it seems amateurish but closer scrutiny reveals a master's work. The story's mystery is both subtle and wildly chaotic. The absolute worst part of the issue was that it ended right before major secrets were revealed. Outstanding
Score: 9 out of 10
Resident Alien - Issue 3 (of 3)
This was a fine ending to the first arc/mini-series that wrapped up all the key points in the story. The mystery made sense, though it was pretty weird. New threats were revealed and a supporting character revealed information that shocked the protagonist. The artwork continues to be average, but the writing is excellent.Continued on the next page
