Rapid Reviews - 7 January 2004 - Part II

Thieves & Kings #43: It's easy to see that Mark Oakley is over whatever depression had him plodding along on this book for a couple of years, even if you don't read his editorial. The story feels like energy is being poured into it, and as a result it's engaging, interesting, and you just want to read more. The short story at the end was also amusing, and kept us up-to-date on the other characters in his epic. 4 starfish

JSA #56: Wow. This is the cliffhanger ending from issue 53 finally resolved. And wow. It's a big change. I'm more than a little upset that the story is continuing in Hawkman, as I hate multi-book crossovers with a passion, but this one might be worth the pain. We'll see next week. 4 starfish

Justice League Adventures #27: A goofy little story about what makes a superhero super. Nothing special, but it was fun. 3 1/2 starfish

Still to review: Common Grounds and Supreme Power.
