Simon Bisley's Original Lobo Cover Goes To Auction
Working with his 2000AD/Judge Dredd partner, Alan Grant, they recreated the spandex-wearing neat-and-tidy intergalactic mercenary originally created by Keith Giffen by interpreting Lobo as the late Lemmy from Motorhead Long scraggly hair, overblown muscles, a wicked scowl, and a tongue too long for his face, the Simon Bisley version of the Last Czarnian was a world[...]

Blue Beetle #13 Review: Which Future Team Is Canon Now?
I'm not complaining mind you; it's always nice to see the Legion, especially since DC kicked them to the curb a few years back. They receive little dialogue, and it's a borderline Easter Egg in that you need to know who the Legion of Superheroes are in order to parcel out that many of the Legion[...]
This one was brought to us by Keith Giffen, Dan Didio, Mark Buckingham, and Chris Sotomayor. The artwork for the fight scenes especially invoke the Kirby style, with a lot of swinging of fists and crashing blows Buckingham and Sotomayor do a fantastic job of capturing the kinetic energy and impressive forms of the King himself. The[...]
blue beetle
Let them stick around. Keith Giffen's art remains well suited for the comic The rough-around-the-edges look fits the rough-and-ready method of Jaime and Ted's superheroing Romulo Fajardo Jr.'s color work is really good A lot of panels seem to glisten with the bright blues, oranges, and golds. It's disappointing to say it, but this was a very[...]
Blue Beetle #10 Review: A Spritz Of Rain In The DC Drought
But who is in control — the Scarab or Jamie? This is a bloated and unwieldy mess of plot threats, but Keith Giffen and J.M DeMatteis kind of make it work for them It's ridiculous It's apocalyptic But it's kind of fun. They balance the characters well Arion is kind of a stereotypical, "People suck, so I[...]
Blue Beetle #9 Review- A Weird, Wild Ride And I Am OMAC
[rwp-review-recap id="0"] While both Jaime Reyes and Ted Kord Blue Beetles (never read anything with the actual original), Keith Giffen and Scott Kolins Blue Beetle was not a fun read initially One major turn-off to the book was the constant damn bickering between any two characters but especially between Jaime Reyes and Ted Kord themselves. Interior conflict[...]

DeMatteis and Keith Giffen, a time-displaced hero who landed in the future DC rebooted Ted as a young grad student for the New 52 in Geoff Johns' in-continuity Forever Evil miniseries earlier this year, but it's too early to tell whether this new version of the character will live up to the character's reputation as[...]

Justice League 3000 Heats Up – Counter To Expectations Of Mediocrity
DeMatteis and Keith Giffen do an excellent job spinning this tale into something that went from a drain-circling eye roll to a fast-paced action movie The dialogue is a little clunky here and there, but if their intent is to paint Superman as a jerk and Batman as distrustful and inquisitive, they're doing fine Howard[...]
