Visit here to learn more! :)

I seem to have very little time this week & I have rated all of so many of the comix that I read this week so for Kara's Comic for Comic Book Week March 21st, 2012 I am going to do this a little differently with some bits of news!

The Avengers Prelude~Fury's Big Week #2 of 4 (Marvel)

(Christopher Yost, Eric Pearson, Luke Ross, Daniel Hdr, Mark Pennington, Chris Sotomayor)

I am sooooooooooo excited!!!!! RDJ & Chris Evans! Yay! & this comic has been filling in all of the little gaps between "Iron Man" & "Incredible Hulk" & "Iron Man 2" & "Thor" & "Captain America: The First Avenger"!!!! Samuel Jackson is even coooler!!!! XD

Cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Wonder Woman #7 (DC)

(Brian Azzarello, Cliff Chiang)

There has been a lot of controversy over this very ish where a dark fact about the Amazons is revealed. I hope that...............& that is why I am not judging the ish yet................maybe this is only part of the story & more may be revealed as the series continues.................pretty please Mister Azzarello? ;;I

Fables #115 (Vertigo / DC)

(Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha, Shawn McManus)

ed this cover & I am ing where the story is going! It is very much like Alice In Wonderland & Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer On The Island Of Misfit Toys!!!! 
Birds Of Prey #7 (DC)

(Duane Sweirczynski, Jesus Saiz)

The next 2 lines may be a spoiler so I will try to hide them! High lite them to see them! :/

Dinah killed her husband!!!!!!????????

What does that mean? Who was her husband? Di is a killer?

No! I hope this story goes another way like Wonder Woman! :(

Nightwing #7 (DC)
(Kyle Higgins, Eddy Barrows,
Geraldo Borges, Paulo Siqueira,
Eber Ferreira)
Batman #7 (DC)
(Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo,
Jonathan Glapion)
I am soooooooooooooooooooo excited for the Court Of Owls! These 2 ishes started off the cross over that may be the best Batman Family Story ever! There is a scene that is in both of these comix that tells the story from Dick's ( ;9 ) & then Bruce's perspective & I have never seen this plot device used sooooooo well! My advice is to read Nightwing 1st & then Batman & then go back & re read Nightwing! Fabulous!!!!! :) 

Supergirl #7 (DC)

(Michael Green, Mike Johnson, Mahmud Asrar)

Kara defeats the World Killers all by her self! 

But what is the most interesting to me is do you fore see that maybe Doomsday might be coming back? :S

hmmmmmm.................. ;)
Justice League #7 (DC)

(Geoff Johns, Gene Ha, Gary Frank)

I do not have much to say about this ish except I  Gene Ha's art work! Fabulous!

But the only problem is that both Hal Jordan & Billy Batson seem to be jerks in the DC new 52! :(

But I like Diana here! :)

See you next week! xoxoxoxoxox ツ*

The Avengers #24 (Marvel)

"Grab him. All at once."~Anthony Stark / Iron Man

writer: Brian Michael Bendis
artist: Daniel Acuña
letters: VC's Cory Petit
associate editor: Lauren Sankovitch
editor: Tom Brevoort
editor in chief: Axel Alonso
chief creative officer: Joe Quesada
publisher: Dan Buckley
exec. producer: Alan Fine
cover art: Daniel Acuña


Kara's comic for Comic Book Week March 14th, 2011 is........................hmmmmmmmm..........................Marvel forgot to name it I guess! 8o

The Avengers #24 is the last ish of the Avengers big fight against Norman Osborn....................who was once the Green Goblin & the Iron Patriot & is now the head of H.A.M.M.E.R.................which means..................hmmmmmmmmm...............................Marvel forgot to name it I guess! `;S

I started reading this story about Norman Osborn around about The New Avengers #17..............that I reviewed here a little bit ;)................& Norman was going to be a major villain that the Avengers would be fighting for about a year & they may not all make it out alive! & now 6 months later..................I think that Marvel forgot because the Avengers beat Norman in this ish by all touching him at the same time.................omg what? 8O

Daniel Acuña's art work is...............despite his tendency to give all the women pouty lips...............absolutely gorgeous though! 89


I do not like ending in such a way but I am really starting to believe that Brian Michael Bendis may keep writing stories that become too complicated to keep his own interest! 8O

Until next week! ツ*

Fairest #1 (Vertigo / DC)

"What valuable potions or notions might it contain?"~Ali Baba

writer: Bill Willingham
pencils & variant cover (not shown): Phil Jimenez
inks: Andy Lanning
colors: Andrew Dalhouse
letters: Todd Klein
cover (shown): Adam Hughes
variant cover colors (not shown): Romulo Fajardo, Jr.
asst. ed.: Gregory Lockard
editor: Shelley Bond

(Fairest is created by Bill Willingham)

Kara's comic for Comic Book Week March 7th, 2012 is "Prince of Thieves, Chapter One of Wide Awake" & my 1st review with a wrap around cover! ;)

To start I just want to say what a beautiful cover! Adam Hughes can be a little bit overly sexual with his ladies but they all look unique & with their own personality & this may be 1 of my favs of all his covers!

The story written by Bill Willingham will of course be appealing to any fans of Fables as it is just an extension of that story................but this story has the fabulous art work of Phil Jimenez! OMG! This looks fantastic! & it looks like Mister Jimenez's work suits literature even more than super heroes!  it! :)

The art work could have actually pushed my  of this book even higher.............but I found it very confusing that a book about the ladies of fables did not have a woman speak until the last page! Although this may be more an extension of DCs seemingly forgetting about their female characters in the new 52! `;S

But having said that............as this story is a merging of the stories of Ali Baba & Sleeping Beauty..............whom Fables fans may remember from her 1 or 2 appearances.................I will wait until next ish to pass final judgement since I am very intrigued! :)

RATING: 8 snow whites out of 10!
