So, it’s Nightwing’s turn to get tormented by the Joker and holy cow, does he get it good from him in this issue. We start off with the Joker offing Jimmy the Clown and leaving him for the circus people and Dick Grayson to find Jimmy is discovered having ingested the Joker toxin so he looks like the Joker and he’s got a sign attached saying “Nobody likes a knockoff”. Realizing that none of the circus performers are safe, Dick has them all leave town for their own safety. However, Sonia Zucco decides to stay in town which Dick doesn’t like but can’t do anything about it and they wind up getting closer. However that’s all interrupted by the Joker.

Scott & David Tippen: Writer; Gordon Purcell: Pencils; J.K. Woodward: Painter; Tom B. Fong; Lettering; Jacen Smith: Assistant Editor; Denton J. Tipton: Editor

This issue starts off where the last one left off with the away teams of Worf, Amy, Rory and some security guards about to enter the engine room with a ton of Borg while at the same time another group comprised of the Doctor, Captain Picard and Data are about to enter the Bridge with even more Borg. The two groups fight their way through making enough distractions for each other trying to keep the Cybermen occupied until the Enterprise arrives which they do with a surprise for the Cybermen in the form of a gold infused particle beam that weakens them greatly which allows away team to finally confront the Cyber-Controller. After a bit of a struggle, the away team get the upper hand and are able to destroy the Cybermen’s ship.

Hawkeye #6 CoverHAWKEYE #6 Review by Jamie Dunst

Matt Fraction: Writer; David Aja: Arist; Matt Hollingsworth: Colorist; Chris Eliopoulos: Letterer; David Aja: Cover

This issue is called “Six Nights in the Life of Hawkeye” and it’s basically what you get. We see Hawkeye dealing with all kinds of things from Thursday, December 13th to Wednesday, December 19th. During these 6 days, we see Clint deal with all kinds of things from having to unpack and decorate his apartment to untangling electronic wiring to fighting A.I.M agents and once again dealing with those annoying Russian mob guys who say “Bro” twice in every sentence. I love how the days are out of order so you can see the effect in one day and how Clint got there in the following page. It’s something that Matt Fraction uses in this book a lot and it really works here.

FANTASTIC FOUR #2 Review by Jamie Dunst

Matt Fraction: Writer; Mark Bagley: Penciler; Mark Farmer & Mark Morales: Inks; Paul Mounts with Wil Quintana; Colorists; VS’s Clayton Cowles: Letterer; Bagley, Farmer & Mounts: Cover

The issue starts off with Ben Grimm on Yancy St. yelling at the Yancy Street gang to protect their block while he’s gone or else. It was two pages long which totaled 9 panels and I loved every panel of it. It was kind of touching at points and I thought it was a good way to start this issue. The scene jumps to Reed and Scott Lang discussing the Fantastic Four’s current problem with their unstable molecules and the reasoning Reed wants to keep this problem a secret for now. While Scott doesn’t like it, he agrees. We then move over to Sue introducing Medussa to the Future Foundation. I liked how Medussa says to Sue that nobody bowed to her and the response Sue says that at least they stood still for almost a whole minute. I thought that was a cool scene. We then get a cool two page scene with She Hulk and Thing competitively are working out before getting summoned to a meeting

At the meeting we see the Fantastic Four with their replacements minus Johnny’s who seems to have forgotten to ask someone to replace him. Johnny asks his girlfriend Darla and shows her what it means to be a member of the FF by brining her into the past for a quick mission. The issue ends with the Future Foundation saying goodbye to the Fantastic Four, Franklin and Valeria as they take off in their ship and go off into time and space. The issue ends with Scott saying how their time as FF member won’t last long and they won’t even know the Fantastic Four is gone.

BATGIRL #15 Review by Jamie Dunst

Gail Simone: Writer; Daniel Sampere: Pencils; Vicente Cifuentes: Inks; Ulises Arredia: Colorist; Dave Sharpe: Letters; Ed Benes & Ulises Arredia: Cover

This issue starts off right where the last one left off with Batigrl facing off with the Joker with Barbara’s mom tied up and Joker proposing marriage to Batgirl. The confrontation between Joker and Batgirl gets pretty intense at times with some very good moments throughout the book. What I loved was that interspersed throughout the issue, you have a flashback with the Joker actually talking about his plan for something like this a Arkham Asylum doctor. The Joker talks to the Doctor about a few things but most important what he would do if he ever met a nine year old girl named Sasha which by coincidence, the good Doctor has such a daughter.

GREEN LANTERN CORPS #15 Review by Jamie Dunst

Peter J. Tomasi: Writer; Fernando Pasarin: Penciller; Scott Hanna: Inker; Gabe Eltaeb: Colorist; Dave Sharpe: Letterer; Trevor McCarthy: Cover

This issue starts out pretty much where the last issue left off. Guy Garnder no longer a Green Lantern and I would assume in the garage of his house. As one would guess, Guy is pretty distraught over what happened. He was finally a bigwig in the Green Lantern Corps with his name in the book of OA and he’s visibly upset over the fact that he’s not longer wearing the ring. There is a six panel page showing Guy stripping off the GL costume and putting back on his leather jacket and motorcycle helmet which I really enjoyed. Also, in the previous three pages that totaled 12 panels total, 4 of them show that experimental Green Gauntlet that Guy once used before. Foreshadowing? I sure as hell hope so.

Elsewhere, we see John and Fatality talking about why Fatality is locked on to a piece of Mogo. They also talk about the past and it’s a nice moment and there seems to be even more foreshadowing with a possible romance between John and Fatality whose real name is Yrra. Not sure if that was ever mentioned before but it’s a nice little nugget of information that I’m sure Green Lantern fans will burn into their memory banks to try and stump each other later on. I do like that these two are on a mission to try and reform a planet. It seems very appropriate for John who destroyed two planets, one of which was Fatality’s. This should be a interesting team-up and considering the Zamarons are now working with the Guardians, I’ll be curious to see how these two fight the Third Army together.

TOP 5 by Jamie Dunst

Who are your favorite superheroes?  Favorite artists?  Favorite ships?  Weapons?  Everyone makes top lists.  I remember reading the novel HIgh Fidelity and the characters of the book would make top 5 lists.  I listen to a podcast where they make top 5 lists and another podcast where they sometimes list the 5 top books they would keep in their pull list if they had to cut their reading pile to just 5 books.  I love top 5 lists because I think they make for great conversation starters.  I always wonder why someone would put comic book X in their list and why they didn’t have comic book Y.  I also feel it’s a great way to get to know a person’s interests and likes when it comes to these lists.  So, to start things off, I am going to begin with a top 5 list that I had just mentioned.  TOP 5 COMICS THAT I WOULD HAVE TO KEEP IN MY PULL LIST:

GREEN LANTERN CORPS #14 Review by Jamie Dunst

Writer: Peter J. Tomasi; Artist: Fernando Pasarin; Inker: Scott Hanna: Colorist: Gabe Eltaeb: Letterer: Dave Sharpe

The issue begins with Guy and his group trying to take on the third army. When the third army becomes too much for Guy and group and eventually Guy’s group of GLs are assimilated into the third army leaving Guy no choice but to retreat. Guy realizes that someone might be targeting his family and he takes them to a safe place with the Justice League until things settle down. What Guy doesn’t realize is that the Guardians are the ones who have the psycho on their leash to mess with Gardner in the first place. Elsewhere, Salaak and Kilowog are realizing that the Guardians may not be on the up and up as of late and Salaak has dispatched a Green Lantern to Earth to find Hal Jordan.

Meanwhile, we see a Star Sapphire getting a mission. We also see John Stewart on a mission to help the destroyed planet Lantern Mogo when we see that Star Sapphire and it’s Fatality. I’m looking forward to this team-up. Should be interesting. Back on OA, we see that the Guardians are blasting Guy for not retreating from the creatures that assimilated his team and for what happened on his mission to protect the ambassador’s ship. All aboard will killed. The Guardians make Guy resign from his post as Green Lantern in view of the rest of the Corps as an example to the rest. Guy does resign and the Guardians send him back to his garage where his motorcycle is.

GREEN LANTERN #14 Review by Jamie Dunst

Writer: Geoff Johns; Penciler: Doug Mahnke; Inkers: Christian Alamy, Mark Irwin, Keith Champagne & Tom Nguyen; Colorists: Alex Sinclair & Tony Avina; Letterer: David Sharpe

The issue begins with the Guardians going over what has transpired in previous issues and how their third army is fairing.  The first Lantern wonders why the Guardians are doing this and they explain that by having one voice in the Universe will finally bring order.  The first Lantern finds them interesting due to how much they have changed but the Guardians don’t care much about him and tell the first Lantern that he is only needed for a short time to power their third army and once they have completed their objective, he will be of no use to them anymore.

Elsewhere, Simon Baz and the Justice League are facing off.  At first, it seems that the whole situation can be reasoned and that calmer heads are prevailing,  Then, at the request of Batman, Simon tries to take off the ring and Sinestro constructs appear yelling at the Justice League not to touch the ring and we have…….high-speed chase.  Not what I expected but it does give us some good conversation between SImon and the Justice League. Once Simon gets away, he meets up with his sister.  They have a nice moment where she explains to Simon that she doesn’t blame him for what happened to her husband and she gets the address of the man whose van Simon stole and they depart.

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION/DOCTOR WHO ASSIMILATION2 #7 Review by Jamie Dunst

Writers: Scott & David Tipton; Pencils: Gordon Purcell; Painter: JK Woodward; Letters: Tom B. Long; Editorial Assistant: Jacen Smith; Editor: Denton J. Tipton

We begin this issue where the last one left off with the Doctor, Amy and Rory are in the past on the Borg cube that was in the battle of Wolf 359.  The Doctor’s companions are a bit shocked to discover that Captain Picard is onboard as a assimilated Borg known as Locutus.  The Doctor fills Amy and Rory about what he learned about this experience from Guinan and then the three get to work on getting the information that they need and depart before the Borg decide that they are a threat.  Once back on the Enterprise, we discover that even with the Borg modifications, the Enterprise wouldn’t catch up to the Cybermen in time so the Doctor recommends that they use the TARDIS which Captain Picard agrees to and plans are set in motion to get the mission underway.

After a few good moment with the Doctor barely trying to keep Amy and Rory off the mission and Riker asking Doctor Crusher to see if she could help his former friend who is now the Borg conduit and the Doctor and Worf debating the use of guns, the team head off in the TARDIS and land inside the Cyber-Ship.  Soon after they dock, the group is detected and the group split up into teams of Captain Picard, Data, the Conduit and the Doctor and the group of Worf, Amy, Rory and the rest of the security team.  As the two teams make their way through the ship they discover just how outnumbered they are.

When we left the crew of the Enterprise and the TARDIS, the Doctor has convinced Captain Picard to work with the Borg to fight the Cybermen. This issue starts with an away team consisting of Picard, the Doctor, Worf, Data, Commander Riker, Amy and Rory meeting with a small group of Borg propose a course of action to fight the Cybermen. Things get tense when Riker recognizes the main Borg who is called the Conduit between the Borg and the Federation as a former Starfleet Officer that had been assimilated. The Conduit merely states that he was being used because he is familiar to the Enterprise crew and the away team along with the Conduit depart to the Enterprise.

Scott & David Tipton: Writers; Gordon Purcell: Pencils; J.K. Woodward: Painter; Shawn Lee: Letterers; Denton J Tipton: Editor

So, this story has been amazing and with issue #5 we get even more goodness.  This issue starts out right where the last issue left off with Captain Picard refusing to help the Borg who are getting demolished by the Cybermen.  The Doctor tries very hard to show Picard his perspective and what would happen if they don’t offer the Borg assistance against the Cybermen.  The Doctor follows Picard into his ready room where eventually Guinan joins the conversation.  The Doctor explains to Guinan what is going on and with Captain Picard’s approval, Guinan explains to the Doctor in an amazing black and white flashback why Picard has such a hatred for the Borg.  While the Doctor and Guinan continue to explain to the Captain Picard why not helping the Borg against the Cybermen would be for the betterment of the whole universe as well as other universes, Picard won’t hear of it and orders his ship back to Earth in order to help the planets that have suffered at the hands of the combined Borg/Cybermen armada.
