Off-Topic: Comic Book Reviews

Dynamite's GRIMM #8

This was a side-story recounting Nick's aunt's last days as a GRIMM. The story had a few wholes and the pacing was off. There were definitely a few good scenes but this was not as good as most issues of this book have been. The art continues to disappoint and it really becomes noticeable when the story is not as strong.

Storyline: 2.5 Stars
Dialogue: 3 Stars
Pacing: 2.5 Stars
Art: 2.5 Stars
Overall: 2.5 Stars


Star Sapphire needed a bigger role in this issue. They need more involvement by the original team, that is what made this book great early on. Still, this was a pretty good story though the pacing was off. I like the way Kyle takes charge. Good stuff, but still nowhere near the early issues.

DC's BATMAN 1966 #6

This book not only captures the fun of the television series, but it improves on it in a number of ways. I love the different villains we meet every week. "Villain of the Week" comics rarely work very long, but the tongue-in-cheek nature of this offering makes it work well indeed. This week is all about Bookworm. I loved it.
