The Flash: Stop Motion – Graphic Audio Edition

The Flash: Stop Motion (Justice League of America)The Flash: Stop Motion by Mark Schultz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Flash: Stop Motion by Mark Schultz; audio book by Graphic Audio, is pretty good. This story is part of a series of books about the Pre New 52 DCU Justice League. As far as I know all of the books are stand alone stories, and I don’t think you need to read them in any particular order to understand any of them.

This one features the Wally West flash who was Berry Allen’s nephew by marriage to Isis West. The story revolves around a genetically engineered creature called The Super Luminoid [No idea about the spelling of that since I had an audiobook.]. It’s a decent story but a lot of it is taken up with lengthy descriptions of some very dubious science.

Enjoyable if you liked the Wally West flash, the Pre New 52 Earth, or are listening to the other books in the series.

Ant-Man: Natural Enemy by Jason Starr

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This review is for the Graphic Audio Edition of Ant-Man: Natural Enemy by Jason Starr.

I’ll say I’ve liked all of the Graphic Audio Editions I’ve listened too. There is just something fun about the full voice casts, sound effects and style of these audio books. They might actually add something to the story for me.

In this story Ant-Man and his daughter are placed into protective custody by the FBI because a criminal has escaped that he had testified against in the past. It’s a pretty straightforward superhero story but it lost two stars because of the overuse of his very obnoxious daughter as a plot device.

She takes up and takes over way too much of the story… and I truly started to wish her dead. We could at least give her a dramatic death couldn’t we? But no. She’s allowed to whine non stop throughout the book. I kept thinking for gods sake send this narcissistic little hooch back to live with her mother already. Her dad just takes all the crap she dishes out, because he’s attached to his spawn I guess.

Despite my little rant I did like it and the parts with Ant-Man and his dating woes were fun to read about.
