Reviews: Harbinger #1, Before Watchmen: Minutemen #1 & The Amazing Spider-Man (Movie Comic) #1

Before Watchmen: Minutemen #1 - 365 Days of Comics
Before Watchmen: Minutemen #1
I've been trying to add content more consistently for, so last week I added 3 comic book reviews to the website's front page: Harbinger #1, Before Watchmen: Minutemen #1 & The Amazing Spider-Man (Movie Comic) #1. Below I have posted brief overviews. For my full reviews on the issues, please follow the links! Thank you for checking them out.

Harbinger #1 - 3.5/5

Think Jedi type characters with mind-powers, but no light sabers. The themes are not particularly original, but the book is still interesting and well done. The series is worthy of your dollars for a few more issues to determine if it's a keeper.

Before Watchmen: Minutemen #1 - 5/5

Darwyn Cooke will make you think the Minutemen were his idea. Cooke's storytelling ability is second to none and his artistic styling seems made for stories that take place 50+ years ago. The perfect artist and writer for a daring project.

The Amazing Spider-Man (Movie Comic) #1 - 2/5

It's a fine effort by the creative team assigned to capitalize on the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man movie, but no seasoned comic book reader needs to read this comic book. If you wanted a closer look at Spidey's costume design then maybe you could still...nah.

Thanks for the read!
