IDW Publishing - New Release Reviews For September 5, 2012
There are a number of new comics being released from IDW Publishing this week. Last week the new issue for the series Locke & Key was reviewed. Recently, writer and creator Joe Hill discussed his plans to end the series in the near future as well as future projects he's planning. He, and artist Gabe Rodriguez, are planning on a new super-hero series. Locke & Key won't be completely gone as they still have some one shots planned.
And, perhaps, there might be another stab at the failed television adaptation. In the meantime, IDW Publishing has seven other comics they're releasing this week. Titles are scored on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the very best possible. We take the time to read these books so your time isn't wasted.
The Crow - Issue 3
The cover is the best aspect of this issue as it's disturbing. The interior art is flat, though there is an undercurrent of moodiness. For the story, the reader is given twenty-two pages and it feels like very little happened. It's very violent, like other Crow tales. There is a fluidity to the structure that creates a lot of confusion.
Score: 5 out of 10
Love And Capes: What To Expect - Issue 2
This is, easily, the best comic of the week. It's a sweet, wonderful story that will resonate more with older readers, but isn't age restricted. It's a funny tale that focuses on the compromises within more advanced relationships. The art is clean, and the layouts are simple. There is nothing grandiose about the comic but it's still just fantastic.
Score: 10 out of 10
Transformers : Robots In Disguise - Issue 9
This issue is blessed with great artwork which is helpful in telling characters apart and giving better context to the environment. The story continues to deal with politics but it benefits from two primary characters driving the tale. There is a side-plot with Decepticons and the one female Autobot, Arcee, which is weird.Continued on the next page
