Week 35 2014 | Part 2 | Comic Book Reviews


By: Cynthia Ayala

Hello there avid readers. Admittedly, these are not the best reviews I have ever written but what are usually my late night to type have taken a turn to replay Final Fantasy X-2. I’m a sucker for that game and I really want that 100%. I’m at 97% right now so lets hope that I achieve that perfect ending. But you’re not here for that. You’re here to see what I have covered. First up is Justice League United #4, followed by Aquaman #34 and then Star Wars: Darth Maul – Son of Dathomir #4. Happy reading!

Justice League United #4

Justice League United #4 (RELEASE DATE: AUG 13, 2014 | COVER PRICE: $3.99)

Justice League Canada | Conclusion

Justice League Canada, I mean United, has finally been formed.

This newest addition to the DC Universe is much better than Justice League America (new 52). The team dynamics are strong and they each fit with one another on a personal level for the reader. This team was founded not because of secrecy and lies, but rather because of a cause to save people.

That right there raises to this team to the level of Justice League. And in this latest issue Miiyahbin’s powers are finally revealed as she is taken to the Justice League United. Now the question is, how well will she fit into this team and the relationships that have already been established.

Over all, the writing is amazing giving readers an action packed and humorous read.

Aquaman #34

Aquaman #34 (RELEASE DATE: AUG 27, 2014 | COVER PRICE: $2.99)

Land and Sea

Aquaman finally knows the truth about the creature that wants to be the king of the seas.

This was an action packed issue from beginning to end that has really put into question Arthurs claim to the throne for those around him. Fans support him, but we all miss him on land, as do the towns’ people who support him. Nevertheless, this rise of a new super villain joins the safety of the land and the sea tightly together and really give Aquaman a formidable enemy that threatens everything he holds closely together.

There wasn’t much else that went on within this issue other than that, but it was still a very good issue. There is a lot of build for future storylines that make it a very interesting read. Of course, let’s not forget the characterization is exceptional. Aquaman kicks all kinds of tushie.

Star Wars: Darth Maul – Son of Dathomir #4

Star Wars: Darth Maul – Son of Dathomir #4 (RELEASE DATE: AUG 20, 2014 | COVER PRICE: $3.50)

Son of Dathomir | Part Four

And here lies Dark Horses last Darth Maul issue, and what an issue it was.

This was a very interesting series, one that has been one of the more impressive Darth Maul story arcs presented. By now, if you’ve been following the series, Maul’s mother is a witch of Dathomir and it’s him and his mother against Dooku and Sidious. Oh and Grievous.

One woman against two men and a machine, and boy, does she give them a fight. Her power is remarkable and her strength was just a simple wow. There was so much about her that just made readers ache for more of her. She was incredibly more interesting than her son and far more powerful as well.

Now I wonder if Marvel is going to pick this up and present readers with more minis.
