This was a good week. This was a very good week! I had another busy week at work, so I didn’t review everything I probably could have. But then I ended up cutting all of the comics I’m only lukewarm about! So we’ve got a week where I was in love with pretty much everything I read! How fun is that?
We’ve got really fun issues of Go Go Power Rangers, Tony Stark – Iron Man, Runaways and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, some of my current favorite comic books! We’ve got the first issue of the relaunched Magnificent Ms. Marvel, which is really neat! But Comic Book of the Week goes to my new super favorite series, Wonder Twins. It’s better than I could have ever hoped.
Meanwhile, the issues of Age of X-Man keep piling up and I keep ignoring them. Through basic internet osmosis, I’m not hearing anything too exciting or positive. So I really may just stick with X-Tremists. In better X-Men news, Sina Grace got a nice big wrap-up to his Iceman comic and it was really fun! Though I completely oppose the Iceman/Daken ‘ship, almost entirely because Daken is terrible.
Comic Reviews: Go Go Power Rangers #18, Magnificent Ms. Marvel #1, Runaways #19, Tony Stark – Iron Man #9, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #42 and Wonder Twins #2.
Oh man, were we expecting a new Avengers: Endgame trailer today?! Here it is, out of nowhere, and it gave me chills! This looks great!
We even get a stinger of Captain Marvel at the end. I think that stinger could have been stronger, but I suppose they don’t want to give too much away…especially if they put this new trailer in front of Captain Marvel for its second weekend.
But what a great trailer! Builds the drama, draws on the past movies, really gathers the heroes into something truly great…and none of the story has been given away! The Avengers group up and try to do something to save the world! I hope it’s going to be great!
Also, on a personal note, Ant-Man remains my favorite movie Avenger. And just seeing Scott Lang suited up and walking alongside the full-on Avengers is pretty fun!
The first Marvel superhero movie with a female lead is here and it’s quite awesome! Let us hope Marvel does not hesitate to make more. Captain Marvel has walked a rocky road in the comics, but it looks like she’ll have a nice, clean, straightforward role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Movie Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
If I had to rank Captain Marvel, I think I’d put it in the upper middle tier of MCU films. It’s not top tier, like Black Panther or the Avengers films, but it’s damn good. I loved pretty much everything about this film. I look forward to seeing Carol show up in Avengers: Endgame, and I look forward to sequels. Simple as that. I’m a Marvel movie fanboy and I do not apologize for that fact!
Join me after the jump for my full review. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the Captain Marvel movie.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a true masterpiece and deservedly won that Oscar. So let’s poke some fun at it! Legitimately, at times, thanks to the How It Should Have Ended people!
Some good jokes there! Though if I can be that guy, a webline isn’t retractable, and Doc Ock needed time to repair the collider, which is why they couldn’t re-do the experiment that day. Though I did love the alternate reality Kingpin seeking revenge joke!
Also, if I haven’t made this clear enough, but I very much dislike the cafe tradition. Stop using your jokey versions of Batman and Superman as a crutch! You’re better than that! You’re funnier than that! Your Spider-Man jokes were great this episode!
Although I will admit the Into the Bat-Verse ending was pretty fun.
Howdy Ho, Hencharinos? How goes it? What’d you think of Captain Marvel? I loved it! Another hit Marvel movie! Maybe not in the absolute top tier at Marvel, but they’ve set the bar for themselves so high. Captain Marvel is definitely another winner! I’ll have my review up on Wednesday!
Not many comic reviews this week, I’m afraid. I was busy at work this week and just didn’t have time. But we’ve still got some good ones, like Champions and Young Justice! Comic Book of the Week goes, once again, to Grant Morrison’s The Green Lantern. Definitely loving this comic!
Meanwhile, I’m maybe kinda sorta decided to give up on Uncanny X-Men. At least when it comes to reviews. I just don’t enjoy the comic. But it’s also the first time Multiple Man has ever been an X-Man…even if it’s not the real Multiple Man, and is written by a guy who I disagree with on how to write/use Multiple Man. So I dunno. I’ll probably keep reading, and maybe I’ll pop in and out for reviews. Of the new issue, I just don’t care for how it’s written and the direction its taking.
Also meanwhile, for anyone interested, I’m still following along with Tom King’s Batman. It’s gotta really metaphysical lately, and I don’t think I can give single issue reviews their justice. But I’ll be back to that series before too long! The new issue is a really good one!
Comic Reviews: Champions #3, The Green Lantern #5 and Young Justice #3.
