A Quote:

"There sit the knights that were so great of hand,
The ladies that were queens of fair green land,
Grown grey and black now, brought unto the dust,
Soiled, without raiment, clad about with sand."
- Algernon Charles Swinburne.

Review: Superhéroes Marvel: Guerras Secretas, Parte 1

Superhéroes Marvel: Guerras Secretas, Parte 1 Superhéroes Marvel: Guerras Secretas, Parte 1 by Jim Shooter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is campy Marvel at its best. The avengers, the X-men, the Fantastic Four, all forced to battle in a makeshift planet by an untra powerful being that puts Galactus to shame. Nothing extraordinary, just fun. By the way, how I miss this Doctor Doom in modern Marvel. Simply the best.

Review: Ultimate Spider-Man: Poder y responsabilidad

Ultimate Spider-Man: Poder y responsabilidad Ultimate Spider-Man: Poder y responsabilidad by Brian Michael Bendis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

To retell an origins story that is so entrenched in comic history and fandom is not an easy task, and most of the time they fail miserably. This is the absolute exception to that. Dinamic, greatly drawn, tackling modern issues and mingling it seamlessly with canon makes this version an absolute win. The downside? The villain. As this iteration of Spiderman/Peter Parked is superb, the Green Goblin lacks definition, presence.

All in all, this was an astonishing (pun intended) surprise.

Review: Doctor Strange: El Juramento

Doctor Strange: El Juramento Doctor Strange: El Juramento by Brian K. Vaughan
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I must confess that I'm not a fan of Doctor Strange, and I believe that in general the mystic superheroes of Marvel are of a very inferior quality compared to those of DC. This book ratified that: deus-ex-machina solutions, poor characterizations, a very lame argument about finding and losing idiotically the panacea, and not so good drawing. It was a barely entertaining read.
