Reviews 3-22-08

Marvel:
  • Amazing Spider-Man 553 5/10
  • Captain America 036 9.5/10
  • The Order 09 9/10
  • Incredible Hercules 115 9.5/10 Best of the Week If you ever wanted to learn the definition of awesome, this comic will give you a pretty good one. Starting out with Amadeus Cho and Herc stealing a SHIELD helicarrier designed specifically for fighting Godzilla, the issue quickly works it's way around to Ares and Hercules fighting on said helicarrier by pulling missiles out of the sky and throwing them at each other. The fight is so intense that I literally went a few pages without realizing that I forgot to read the word balloons. That'd be enough for most comics, but the issue also squeezes in a tie in to Secret Invasion, a look at Herc's mythological history, a genuinely touching moment, and a giant explosion. Believe me, this issue is so good that I'm a little tempted to drop the series because there's no way it can get better than this (but only a little).
