What a great week for comics! The new version of Comixology sucks total garbage, but at least this week had some really great reads. From Nightwing to X-Men, I really enjoyed the content, if not the means.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #16 for an excellent wrap-up to their latest big story. Lots of great character moments in this issue, and I could have used so many more.
Meanwhile, the Peacemaker TV show nailed the landing and I’ll have my full review and thoughts posted on Wednesday! Such a great show! I’m also currently battling desires to buy Horizon Forbidden West. I only have a Playstation 4 and I’m fairly certain it’s going to look fine for my standards, but the temptation to also buy a Playstation 5 and a big screen, 4K television is strong.

Welcome to the world of reviewing comics! Not too many reviews this week because I was really only in the mood to pick up comics I was actually interested in reading this week instead of expanding out to others I was meh about. So we’ve got the likes of SWORD and the new Superman: Son of Kal-El.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #5 for a perfect ending to a perfect comic book. This whole adventure was phenomenal and the ending is pretty great.
Meanwhile, I watched and very much enjoyed Masters of the Universe: Revelation last weekend. People are complaining online, as they are wont to do, but I had a blast. And I am definitely an old school He-Man fan from back in the 80s. And then by this time next week, I’ll have seen The Suicide Squad! So that’s exciting!

Welcome to the fifth week of June in terms of comic book releases! That means very little was released this week, and I read very little of that. So really, we’re got a pretty news-worthy issue of X-Factor to wrap up the Hellfire Gala and then another brilliant issue of Beta Ray Bill.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #4, carrying this series through as a Comic Book of the Year contender. With artwork this gorgeous, why to the rest of us even exist?
Meanwhile, life continues as expected. The Loki show is still great. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is still great. And by this time next week, I’ll have seen Black Widow! So huzzah!

Monday saw the announcement of an upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy video game. It’s going to be a single player action RPG where you take the movie-lite characters on an adventure through the cosmos. A bunch of cosmic Marvel characters appear in the trailer…and all of them are from the GotG movies.
Surely the game isn’t restricted to just the movies…right?
Marvel has a bajillion and one cosmic characters out there in the universe. Surely this game has the rights to include more than just movie characters, right? The Square Enix Avengers game included the likes of Ms. Marvel and Kate Bishop, and they aren’t from the movies…though both have upcoming shows. Oh…oh god. The GotG game is only going to include movie characters. Cosmo, Mantis, Nova Corps, Collector…that’s all we’re going to get! Noooooooo!
Join me after the jump to relieve my disappointment with some awesome cosmic characters who I hope beyond hope get to show up in the Guardians of the Galaxy video game!Read the rest of this entry
Oh what a week for comics, my friends! I guess. Some pretty good stuff this week, but not as good as last week, I’m afraid. We’ve got solid work from Detective Comics and Robin, at least. I’m just not really feeling it this week. I’ve been really tired lately. But don’t worry about me! I splurged on some new LEGO to make me happy.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #3, making another solid push to become the best comic of the year already! Just look at what we get in this issue!
Meanwhile, I’ve dropped the Harley Quinn comic because I just wasn’t feeling it this week. And another issue of Strange Adventure came out. It was OK…but I think this whole series has just been one long, slow attempt by Tom King to ruin everything that might have ever been good or fun about Adam Strange. If you thought you liked Adam Strange, wait until you find out how he’s a liar and a war criminal! The series.
