Rapid Reviews - 28 January 2004 - Part II

Green Lantern #173: Please tell me this storyline is ending soon. Please? 2 1/2 starfish

JLA #92: Monkeys. Too many monkeys. Too much preaching. And I'm sorry, but Tan Eng Haut's artwork just doesn't work in this context. Yes, it's cutting edge and different, but maybe DC ought to give him a different genre to work with? Maybe something that plays to his strengths and isn't another morality play. 3 starfish

Wonder Woman #200: We got this for the art by Eric Shanower and Linda Medley. Thus, the starting story was mostly a mystery and of little interest. The "Golden Age" tale was just on the edge of being too sarcastic, but it managed to convey what those stories were like pretty well. The Silver Age tale was... um... Silver Agey. The ending was particularly groan-worthy. I really enjoyed the Linda Medley tale of Perseus and the Gorgon. I wish there was more of Shanower's artwork in his story, but it was a fun look at media in the DCU. 3 1/2 starfish

Still to review: Hawkman, Amazing Spider-Dude, and Wildguard.
