Limerick Reviews for 03/17/09

Erin Go Bragh! I'm actually updating, in honor of St. Patty's Day!

Limerick Reviews for 03/17/09

Some spoilers for books can be found
If you keep looking down and around
Of course, some are not new
So it's all up to you
All these reviews just cover old ground.

Incognito #2 - Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips - A+

There's a young supervillain named Zack
Who really should be watching his back
It's really quite noir
With violence galore
This book goes to the top of my stack.

Angel #18 - Kelley Armstrong & Dave Ross - B

There once was a vampire named Liam
Whose feats made all LA folks screa-um.
This Angel book is good
And it does what it should
But I'm surprised Kate charges per diem.

Thor #600 - J. Michael Straczynski, Olivier Copiel, Marko Djurdjevic, Mark Morales, Stan Lee, David Aja, Chris Giarrusso - A

So, there's this Thunder God who's named Thor
And his sister-slash-brother's pretty sore
The main story's fine,
Mini Marvels divine,
And this "Stan Lee" fellow should write more.

Action Comics #875 - Greg Rucka, Eddy Barrows, Ruy Jose & Julio Ferreria - B

I gather there's Kryptonian spies
Who are getting knocked out of the skies
Lieutenant Commander
Ursa takes a gander
I, too, don't know any of these guys.

Daredevil 116 - Ed Brubaker, David Aja, Stefano Gaudiano - A

There once was a mob Kingpin named Fisk
Who put people at terrible risk
Just by hanging around
He got some folks struck down
Sophocles would say "Tsk, tsk, tsk."

Captain Britain & MI13 - Paul Cornell, Leonard Kirk & Mike Collins, Jay Leisten & Robin Riggs - A+

Vampire missiles fall from the moon
Wisdom will attack Dracula soon
I have no more to say
'Cause Vampire Missiles? Yay!
Go buy this book, for it is a boon.

Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk #3 - Damon Lindelof, Lenil Francis Yu, Dave McCaig - C+

This book's been on hiatus for years
So just printing it deserves some cheers
A decent enough read
Flashback Wolvie sure bleeds
Only Ultimate She-Hulk stops jeers.

Secret Six #7 - Gail Simone, Nicola Scott, Doug Hazelwood - B

There once was a killer, first name Floyd
Whom folks usually try to avoid
A Tarantula dies
And, wow, Junior? Surprise!
Leaving all folks but Scandal annoyed.

Echo #10 - Terry Moore - B

There once was a lass named J. Martin
Whose chest and shoulders were now smartin'
Evil drifter comes near
Phone call ending in fear
A cliffhanger like that? Nice partin'.

She-Hulk #38 - Peter David, Steve Scott, Vicente Cifuentes - C+

All of the "meta humor" aside
I tried taking this ending in stride
But the book's fall from grace
Leaves me with a sad face
Emo Shulkie? I just can't abide.
