Comics this week

DC Universe Online: Legends #25- I said last week that the story in DCU Online now has nothing to do with the story of the online game anymore, and this issue prove it once again. Writer Marv Wolfman and artist Mike Miller has diverted from the story written for the online game and in some ways the series is better for it. I won’t be sad when the series finally end caused the finish looks like it will be a fun ride.

Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time #22- The early books of the Wheel of Time series could be called adventure books. The books have Rand, Mat and Perrin on a journey across dangerous lands and it was fun. This issue shows how well Robert Jordan did his job as the fun and danger of the journey was shown in full by writer Chuck Dixon and artist Andie Tong. Andie Tong was especially solid this issue as her work with colorist Nicolas Chapuis made the issue full of life. An excellent issue.

Villains For Hire #4- I just knew it. The Purple Man got taken down way too easily by Misty Knight. No surprise also on Paladin returning as well as the agreement between Misty and Puppet Master. For a series called Villains For Hire, this series became as expected Heroes For Hire. Too bad caused a real Villains For Hire series would have been fun.
