Comic of the Week (15/07/2009)

Although not a stand out issue, there was enough going on to justify The Walking Dead #63 being the title of the week. The introduction of the Hunters as a real threat came good, with an air of mystery and menace, and deadly, cold logic. The last panel was a scream - especially for one of the main characters in the book....

Elsewhere, Young Liars #17 hurtles us towards the titles finale, which wraps up next time with issue #18. I cannot help but feel that an ending is being forced upon David Lapham, and it makes me sad reading this issue. That is about all I have to say on that subject.

Blackest Night #1 was great fun, even though I haven't read an issue of Green Lantern before. There is a great build up to a terrible event, a real sense of foreboding. Pleasantly surprised - art was great, I could follow most (if not all) of what was going on - got the big themes though. Great stuff.
