Comics Nexus Flashback 12/20/2004: Cable/Deadpool #10, Adventures of Superman #635, Batman Gotham Knights #60

Inside Pulse launched on August 9, 2004, and has covered the world of comics for over a decade. Every day, we take a look back at what was happening in the world of comics 10 years ago, as reported right here at Inside Pulse!

What has made Daredevil one of the most consistently great books to come out of the Marvel Universe this decade? Is it the art by the stylistic Alex Maleev? Well… yes, but that’s not all. Is it Bendis’ ability to give you a great Matt Murdock who sits and realizes that his moral high ground isn’t as important as protecting Hell’s Kitchen? Yes, but there’s still more. Is it their ability to blend Maleev’s stylistic ‘grit’, and change it at the drop of a hat? You know what, it’s all these things and so much more.

Cable/Deadpool #10 Review

He’s a man with the power to raise cities from the ground and turn them into citadels. He can kill with a thought, and wields his power into a force that no man can take away. He is a mutant. He is Nathan Dayspring Summers, better known to the world as Cable.

Adventures of Superman #635 Review

Reviews seem to be very mixed these days for the Superman books. And it appears that the much hyped revamp the books went through last spring has been a bit of a disappointment.

He’s not as hated as Chuck Austin, nor does he have the buzz of Jim Lee, so this book is a bit under the radar, and that’s just fine.

Batman Gotham Knights #60 Review

I was not expecting to like this story. Not at all. I wasn’t even going to buy the issue. But for whatever reason, I did. And I liked it. A lot.

I really like the way Lieberman has turned around the Hush story. It was not bad at all, but he has made it even more interesting. Hush is now a very sinister person, and thanks to this issue, we don’t even know who that person is. My only question about him right now is why he can’t get a better outfit. He looks like a homeless man right now. And we just can’t have that. If I was Batman, I wouldn’t be able to take a homeless man seriously if he wanted to fight me. Really.
