What I really like about Snake Eyes #6 is that it showed a different side of the Cobra Civil War storyline. There’s plenty of Joes and Cobras to go around, so it’s nice to get a little glimpse on what the coolest member of the GI Joe team is up to while the rest of the team is scrambling to hold their own and the forces of Cobra are launching all out war on the Joes.

What I liked most about this issue was the constant action. In the whole book there’s maybe one whole page of “talking heads” and that’s it. And that’s the way a Snake Eyes comic should be.

OK, I’ll be honest with you, my audience. This is by FAR the hardest review that I’ve had to write for Geeks of Doom to date, for two simple reasons. One, admittedly, my knowledge of the Legion of Super-Heroes is somewhat limited. And two, the way this comic is written, it’s going to be almost impossible for me not to go into spoiler territory. But, I’ll do my best.

First, my hat’s off to writer Chris Roberson. He’s done a great job of taking two mega popular franchises and made them blend seamlessly into one cohesive, fast-paced, entertaining story.

Jennifer Blood #4
Written by Garth Ennis
Art by Marcos Marz, Kewber Baal
Letters by Rob Steen
Colors by Romulo Fajardo Jr.
Covers by (A) Tim Bradstreet, (B) Jonathan Lau, (C) Ale Garza, (D) Johnny Desjardins
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: September 7, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

Writer Garth Ennis has a history of creating characters who like to get violent from time to time, and his new series, Jennifer Blood features just such a character. Jennifer Blood is a housewife by day and a killer by night, hunting down mobsters and other criminals and dispatching them with brutal efficiency. The series has got all of Ennis’ trademark outlandish characters and some of the old ultra-violence. From what I’ve read, it seems like a fun series with tons of action.

In previous issues of the series, Jennifer Blood has made a name for herself and has attracted the wrong kind of attention. Now someone has hired a team of killers to take Jennifer out. The killers are a team of young girls who act like every anime schoolgirl ninja stereotype, complete with broken English and inappropriate laughing. Jennifer has a plan though and isn’t going to let herself be taken out by a bunch of clichés.

Comic Review: The Pound #1

The Pound #1
Written by Stephan Nilson
Art by Karl Waller
Colors by Romulo Fajardo Jr
Lettering by Charles Pritchett
Frozen Beach Studios
Release date: March 30, 2011

I always like when a new horror comic comes around, and that’s what we’re getting with The Pound, a new series from Frozen Beach Studios. The Pound has a premise that I have kind of seen before, but is different enough for me latch on to. The Pound has a lot of great potential, and a first issue that sets everything up in a nice way and gets the mystery going.

The issue starts with a bit of horror, as we see the standard girl in peril in a dark alley, until she is rescued by a couple of werewolves. We then cut to Scott and Howie, a couple of exterminators who lose their jobs in a round of layoffs, but decide to pull themselves up and start their own extermination company. A couple of weeks later, the company has been started, and the pair run into a case that may be more than they can handle. Where this case will lead them is anyone’s guess.
