Haiku Reviews for 1/30/08

Like worms in apples
SPOILERS exist inside my
Pretentious reviews

The Mighty Avengers #8 - Brian Michael Bendis & Mark Bagley - B

I've got a FEVER
And the only prescription

Daredevil #104 - Ed Brubaker & Michael Lark - A-

This tweaked Mister Fear?
Delightfully twisted, plus
Smarter than Scarecrow.

Ultimate Spider-Man 118 - Brian Michael Bendis & Stuart Immonen - A

Kitty Pryde again
With a dude named KONG! Not Pete!
Plus, Firestar! FUN!

Avengers: The Initiative #9 - Dan Slott & Chris Gage & Stefano Caselli - C

Pym's chickens roosting
Feels less satisfying with
A dead Diamondback.

Black Summer #5 - Warren Ellis & Juan Jose Ryp - B-

Much speechifying
With a scene of violence
Good sizzle, more steak.

New Avengers Annual #2 - Brian Michael Bendis & Carlo Pagulayan - B+

DAMN, Jessica Jones!
This whole issue was worth it
Just for that surprise.

BONUS POETRY in Honor of Tigra:

Tigra! Tigra! kicking ass
In the face of The Hood's sass,
Examined with a hopeful fanboy eye -
A rebuttal to previous misogyny?

Y: The Last Man #60 - Brian K. Vaughan & Pia Guerra - A+

"Alas, poor Yorick"?
This ending was so poignant
You made me cry, Vaughan.

*sniff* I have something in my eye. G'way.
