Rusty’s Comic of the Week: Fairest #32 | December 6, 2014

Fairest32

Small week.

From the weakest…

INHUMAN #9 (Soule / Stegman / Isanove) Marvel

Stupid Axis. Medusa isn’t acting very nice! And she is wearing her hair in a ridiculously impractical braid, considering her abilities. Why?

Because she alignment switched!

Dumb… dumb… dumb…

TOOTH & CLAW #2 (Busiek / Dewey / Bellaire / Comicraft) Image

I really liked the first issue of this. What happened?

Well, it is still pretty good, but…

The species of the champion was no surprise but as I read it, it came across as a little… white supremacist. I know that isn’t the intention but the heroic human swoops in to save the primitive and barbaric foreign species…

We’ll see.

SECRET SIX #1 (Simone / Lachley / Geraci / Wright) DC

I used to love Simone’s Secret Six. Then it was cancelled and I read more Simone stuff and was generally underwhelmed. Not that it was terrible or anything, it just wasn’t as good as Secret Six was.

So, it is back! Kind of. This is post-reboot so the old book didn’t exist, I think. This one is unrelated with an almost all new cast.

The first issue was interesting, but I really don’t like the art and it is hard to see where this is going.

We’ll see.

SWAMP THING #37 (Soule / Saiz / Hollingsworth) DC

The new Lady Weeds / Machine Queen is pretty snazzy. Do you get the impression the machines have made a terrible mistake?

And, of course, Anton Arcane…

FAIREST #32 (Buckingham / Braun / Pepoy / Dalhouse) Vertigo

The final Fairest arc has ended (there is still one more stand alone issue). It ended up pretty well, with the glamour lottery and the result ion to the Reynard story. That ended very nicely, with the farm boys turning out to be good lads and a new status quo for the farm. Works for me.
