Alagg - Strip 233.

The Boy Wonder Reviews - Deadpool 47.

Another one of my 14 year old son's reviews.  This one is all about Deadpool 47.


Writer - Daniel Way.
Artist - Salva Espin.

Publisher - Marvel Comics.

Deadpool is one of my favourite characters.  Yet again he has had to excuse his actions.  This time he has to say 'It was my evil twin.'  But for once Deadpool is telling the truth.  The storyline in the last few issues has been really good and I think that this is my favourite overall comic at the moment.  I like the funny moments in it and they are really good in this issue.

The art is as good as ever.  It never misses a chance to show missing limbs or other gore.  The one moment in it that I don't understand is that Captain America has defeated loads of people in the past but in this comic he gets knocked out by his own shield.  It seemed a bit unlikely but didn't ruin the issue or anything.

The character Evil Deadpool seems like a completely original character.  I never saw him coming and he is a great nemesis for Deadpool.  Evil Deadpool is easily what Deadpool would be if he stopped doing all the hero stuff.  It is a great idea that he is made up of old body parts from the original Deadpool.  I hope that the writers don't write him off and keep him as a character in the comic series.

I highly recommend reading this series.

Art - 8/10.
Story - 9/10.
Overall Comic - 8/10.

The Boy Wonder Reviews - Uncanny X-Men #02.

Next up in the series of comics reviews by my 14 year old son is Uncanny X-Men #02.


Uncanny X-Men 2.

Writer - Kieron Gillen.
Artists - Carlos Pacheco, Jorge Molina and Rodney Buchemi.
Inkers - Cam Smith, Roger Bonet, Walden Wong and Jorge Molina.

Publisher - Marvel Comics.

The new X-Men regenesis is off to a good start.  I like the choice of the villain in the new series.  Mr Sinister has always been an interesting premise.  It was also good to see that Emma Frost got what was coming to her.  Despite everything that has happened she is determined to have her own way and to people down all the time. It seems like not all of the X-Men are concerned about her situation.  Maybe she has lost her charm?

The new team choice is a good one for me as it means that there are lots of good fight scenes.  The comment by Namor about being a target does seem to show that he understands that it is Cyclops who is trying to save his race.  (Eventhough they are probably all going to die because of what he decides to do.)

I think that having the two teams and the split in the X-Men are needed for the survival of the race.  I will probably buy this in trade because it is quite complicated and it is easier to understand what is going on with all the issues collected.

Art - 10/10.
Story - 9/10.
Overall Comic - 9/10.
