This Week in Comics: Bloodshot, Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Rorschach

What a long weekend, thanks to the Aidilfitri holidays and it’s a good thing since I get to check up with a whole bunch of comic books for this week’s belated segment. Judging by how Valiant’s Bloodshot #2 is going, the rebooted series is presenting a strong case for being made into a balls-out, pedal-to-the-metal action movie. Bloodshot seems to do what he does best here, which is getting shot/blown up and killing a judicious amount of people at the same time. I can almost hear the words “ludicrous gibs” echoing in the background when reading this book. 4 out of 5!

The Dynamic Duo of Sinestro and Hal Jordan confront Black Hand in Green Lantern #12 (which honestly should be retitled to Hal Jordan & Sinestro). Using Sinestro’s yellow battery as a makeshift bomb, the two manage to take out a whole bunch of Black-ring resurrected undead, only to fall into the hands of Black Hand (pun intended), who in turn is getting trolled by the Book of the Black. GL #12 turned out to be take on black humour (again, pun intended). 4 out of 5!

Guy Gardner’s and John Stewart’s prison break turns out to be a success in Green Lantern Corps  #12 as the entire Alpha Lantern corps gets taken out. I wonder what the Guardians are planning next as this issue serves as a springboard to greater things, namely the Third Army and whatnot. GLC #12 gets a 3.5 out of 5.

I may not like the Red Hood and the Outlaws series, but I must say that issue 12’s cover reminds me of a Star Wars movie poster. Just have a look at the screenshot above and tell me I’m wrong. LOL. The cover itself gets a 5 out of 5 from me.

It seems that no weekly comic book would be complete without a “Before Watchmen” comic book in the mix. This week  is Rorschach #1 and is drawn by one of my favourite artists, Lee Bermejo. The story is a gritty one as well, seldom you get to see the guy get beaten up in the first place, and fans would notice that the big baddie bears a resemblance to Killer Croc in the Joker graphic novel done by the same creative team. 4.5 out of 5!
