Limerick Reviews for 3/19/08


The Order #9 - Matt Fraction & Barry Kitson and Javier Saltares - A+

There once was a group called The Order
Who fought crime north of the Border
There's fun Die Hard quotes
A villain who gloats
I can't work in a rhyme for "Mordor"


"The Second Stage of Grief"

Why didn't you buy
This incredibly good book
You damn fanboy twits

Angel: After The Fall #5 - Joss Whedon & Brian Lynch & Franco Urru - B+

There once was a girl named Fred
Whom we all thought eaten and dead
But in this murky fight
An astonishing sight
These plot twists are hurting my head


"Bad Impressionism"

These vague renderings
Murky faces, dark action
Send Monet away.

The Immortal Iron Fist #13 - Matt Fraction & Ed Brubaker & Tonci Zonjic & David Aja & Kano - B+

There once was a fighter named Rand
Who could make one Iron-like hand
With fighters galore
He'll settle the score
I see now why folks say it's grand.

Thor #7 - J. Michael Straczynski & Marko Djurdjevic - B

There once was an Aesir named Odin
More august than Sir Charles Grodin
As comatose Thor
Learns Dad's pretty sore
Don Blake is free of forebodin'

Checkmate #24 - Greg Rucka & Eric Trautmann & Joe Bennett - A+

There once was a cult who loved snakes
Who transformed folks and raised the stakes
Supes, the JLA
And all JSA
Plus spies?! So good it gives me the shakes.


"Waffling in the Face of Loss"

Rucka, Trautmann gone
Bruce Jones is just not the same
Should I still buy this?
