World’s Finest Comics #243

World’s Finest Comics #243

When the relocation of ancient statues puts the Immortals of Cy-Tor at risk, the aliens are forced into action against Batman, Robin and Superman. This snoozy story from Bob Haney has its moments, but bland art from Curt Swan and Al Milgrom doesn’t help this dated affair. [More]

Review: Tomb of Dracula #53           

Hannibal King brings Blade back to life, so the two can team to hunt down and dispatch Deacon Frost. Marv Wolfman’s story is hard to crack without some back story, but worth the effort. Gene Colon and Tom Palmer provide their usual, strong support on art. [More]

Detective Comics #467

Detective Comics #467

After breaking up a criminal conspiracy on a Gotham subway, Batman recounts the caper for a mystery breakfast guest.

Review: Adventure Comics #449           

Aquaman must stop the Marine Marauder, a “lowly marine biologist” who uses air-breathing sea creatures to steal swine-flu vaccine. Steve Skeates story is pretty silly, but Jim Aparo’s art is excellent as usual. Throw in a well-drawn backup story by Mike Nasser and Terry Austin (written by Denny O’Neil) and this comic is one to pick up for the art. [More]

Don’t judge this book by its cover: Instead of battling a Kree warrior with a blue Afro, the Inhumans face off again against Maximus the Mad (surprise!) in a reprint front Jack Kirby. [More]

The Avengers #156

The Avengers #156

The Avengers team with Dr. Doom and the Sub-Mariner to battle Attuma, but — shocker! — Doom turns on his allies. Jim Shooter and Sal Buscema deliver a somewhat sub-par finale to this multipart tale. [More]

What If? #1                               

What If? #1

In an alternate universe observed by the Watcher, a young Spider-Man becomes a paid member of the FF. The concept is stronger than the execution, with writer/editor Roy Thomas embracing his inner fanboy, aided by penciller Jim Craig. [More]
