Rhymes With Geek Roundup 5/8/14

As near the end of any given week, time for a good old Rhymes With Geek roundup of what I’ve been up to there. A lot of fun stuff, a lot of cool things, and it is all nifty. Look at these roundups as a way of me giving you bonus material as I process out my thoughts after the review. Enjoy.

Just posted up today on May 8, 2014 is my review of New 52: Futures End #1, which you can check out here to learn my further thoughts on that one.  If you’re curious I’m likely going to check out the first month. Futures End intrigues me just enough that the first month might be worth it. I call this week my toughest two reviews to write, yes this is in the week following my most brutal review on the planet in Uncanny Avengers Annual #1. Of course considering the second review I did this week, while Futures End was a positive one, at least mostly, this one was a bit tougher to handle than I imagined.

The second review was Burn The Orphanage: Reign of Terror #1, and that you can see here as well. I’ve been processing that one, I think in my eyes that the Born to Lose trilogy in Burn The Orphanage was so strong that the monthly series had more to live up to. As this is a five issue series I am going to try out the next issue, confirmation from me on that one. Any kind of premise could have the potential to grow on me. I really want to like this though which is why I’m giving it another go. I still like the core concept so at least Burn The Orphanage hasn’t turned me off completely.

As for the final bit of Rhymes With Geek goodness, a crosspost of  my Ant-Man piece from here onto the Rhymes With Geek express. Do read this one too, which if you want to check it again it lies here, and reads smoother too. Give a round of applause to editors by the way, Dante Jordan has been working with my stuff a lot when he can and he makes it sing. He’s a cool dude and I appreciate his chats with me. He’s helped my writing a lot even linking me things to help me out. If you have an editor out there fellow writers, tell them they’re awesome because they are.

That is the Rhymes With Geek roundup for this week. Thanks for catching up with my stuff there, I appreciate each and every one of you that reads my stuff.
