Weird Science DC Comics Comic Books of the Week 10/08/16

Here we are, back for another week of comics and another week of the Weird Science Get Fresh Crew's Books of the Week!  It looks like Reggie comes out on top again with the most it because he's a nice guy or does he just have the best books to review?  I say it's a little from Column A and a little from Column B.  I'd also like to welcome Branden to the party this week.  He reviewed He-Man/Thundercats and if you thought that was not making the grade, you obviously don't know Branden!  Well, enough talking and on with the picks...

He-Man/Thundercats #1
Score: 9.0/10

What Branden Said:

This was a great comic book interpretation of two classic 80's toy properties turned cartoon.  I'm a big fan of how DC has put out various different mini-series over the last few years to hit everyone's particular sweet spot. With He-Man/Thundercats, they have found mine and I'm sure I'm not alone. The art by Freddie L. Williams colored by Jeremy Colwell with an intriguing story put forth by Rob David and Lloyd Goldfine is definitely worth the price of admission. I'm not a cover guy either but I think I need the connecting good vs bad guys covers to frame and enjoy while dazing off at work.    Read Full Review

Aquaman #8
Score: 8.5/10

What Reggie Said:

A great issue of Aquaman full of underwater action, heroism, and a surprise character revealed at the end! And this character is awesome! Mera is presented with a conflict that could have dire consequences, but probably won't because Aquaman is completely smitten with her. The art was never a problem in this series, and looks really nice here. Put it all together, and you're looking at a dang good comic book, I tell you what! Read Full Review

Harley Quinn #5
Score: 8.5/10

What Reggie Said:

The opening issue to Harley Quinn's punk rock adventure is a lot of fun with some really hilarious jokes...and not a lot of punk rock. Still, the reinforcement of a previously-made arrangement with the City of New York and a solo Red Tool scene counts as character development in my book. I really love when John Timms draws Harley and the crew, he's got a style that is sexy without being pornographic, and it looks really fluid. I am really excited for the rest of this story, though admittedly I have a bit of that New Yawk bias. So sue me. Read Full Review

Green Arrow #8
Score: 8.0/10

What Jim Said:

If you have been enjoying Green Arrow up until now, I think that will continue this week.  If you haven't given it a try, this issue is as good as any as a jumping on point...maybe even better.  The character interactions, art and growing mystery make this easy to recommend. Read Full Review

Shade the Changing Girl #1

Score: 8.0/10

What Chris Said:

I'm hopeful for this book. The art is almost a sensory treat... the mix of psychedelic imagery and its wonderful color palette make it easy to get lost in the world of Madness. There may be critics that pull out the old "weird for weirdness sake" card... and, I can't really contest that. This was weird, and without its full context... this is a difficult one to fairly judge. For what it was, I enjoyed it... if you're a weirdo like me, I think you'll dig it too. Read Full Review
