Light week for reviews this week. I got wrapped up with a couple of things, and it was a pretty light week for me anyway. But we’ve got new Batman, Power Rangers and Captain America, so at least it’s a good week.
Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Mister Miracle, not least of which for one sequence that beggars belief to exist in a DC comic at all. It has to be seen to be believed!
Meanwhile, a couple different titles might be dropping in and out of my reviews as we go along. I kind of fell behind on a couple of books, which is why Justice League and Immortal Hulk don’t get a review this week. But I’m going to actively keep reading and maybe drop in a review here and there. We’ll see!
As always, if there’s any comic you’d like me to check out or like me to cover full time, just let me know in the comments.
Comic Reviews: Batman #52, Captain America #2, Go Go Power Rangers #12 and Mister Miracle #10.
It’s Comic Book Convention time again! This weekend, I’m in Syracuse, NY at the Salt City Comic-Con, showing off Gamer Girl & Vixen to a whole new audience. This is the biggest convention I’ve done solo, so wish me luck! And buy my book!
This is a pretty nifty week for comics in that I’m mostly reading big names. Avengers, Justice League, Batman, Captain America, the Hulk, Superman; where are all my obscure, niche comics? Whatever the case may be, Comic Book of the Week goes to Captain America #1 for what looks like it could be an exciting, political start.
Meanwhile, I very much enjoyed Ant-Man and the Wasp! It’s a fun and energetic movie, much like the first. The characters are a joy to watch and Ant-Man remains my favorite superhero in the MCU. I think I’ll go see it again on my day off on Monday!
Comic Reviews: Avengers #4, Batman #50, Catwoman #1, Captain American #1, Go Go Power Rangers #11, Immortal Hulk #2, Justice League #3 and Man of Steel #6.
Happy Comic-Con season everybody! If you’re reading this, I am likely at Flower City Comic-Con in Rochester, NY, promoting Gamer Girl & Vixen! It’s the biggest convention I’ve tabled at solo, so hopefully I’m having fun and selling comics! Next month I’ll be in Syracuse.
We had some really solid comics out this week, which is always a hoot. For the first time in a long time, I find myself reviewing both the main Batman and main Superman comics in the same week. That’s pretty neat! We’ve also got new Power Rangers, Hulk and that Dazzler one-shot we were all excited about.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Justice League #1 for a far out and freaky debut issue!
Meanwhile, DC is also putting out some one-shots of Bat-Family characters reacting to the upcoming wedding. I flipped through the Nightwing vs. Hush issue and was disappointed to discover that Batman chose Superman to be his best man over Dick. Batman and Robin is legend, man! How is that not the most obvious thing?
Also, they explain that Batman and Catwoman are getting married, but not Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle. That’s weird as hell.
Comic Reviews: Batman #48, Dazzler X-Song #1, Go Go Power Rangers #10, Justice League #1, Immortal Hulk #1 and Man of Steel #2.
A new age of comics is upon us! The Avengers is getting a more back-to-basics relaunch this week, and it ain’t half bad. And Justice League is do for a crazy wild relaunch in a couple weeks. That should also be fun.
Honestly, I think The Avengers #1 is Comic Book of the Week. It’s a pretty momentous issue, finally re-uniting Captain America, Iron Man and Thor at the core of the team. That’s pretty neat. And, like I said, Jason Aaron does a solid, exciting job.
Meanwhile, the Rogue & Gambit mini-series came to an end and it was delightful! I want Kelly Thompson on more X-Men stuff! Any fan of the two characters, especially as a couple, need to read that comic!
Comic Reviews: The Avengers #1, Batman #46 and Go Go Power Rangers #9.
Happy last comic reviews of the year, everybody! The horrible year of 2017 is almost over, leading into possibly the even worse 2018! There’s only one way to find out! I had a pretty solid 2017, to be honest. I published a graphic novel. I gave online dating a try. And I paid off my car a couple months early. Not too bad.
It’s another weird week of not having any Marvel comics to review. As a Marvel Zombie, I do find that weird. I’m also beginning to realize that the only DC comics I read involve the Bat-Family. I need to work on that. But for now, I’ll enjoy stuff like Detective Comics, which wins Comic Book of the Week!
Normally I would use this space to talk about the latest Big Event, but then I remembered that I decided to actually review Doomsday Clock like a normal comic. I’m slightly regretting that at the moment. Over at Marvel, I skipped the resurrection of Jean Grey because I largely don’t care.
Comic Reviews: Batgirl #18, Detective Comics #971, Doomsday Clock #2 and Go Go Power Rangers #5.
