Comics! They’re still coming out! The world keeps spinning! And my fingers are still working. So let’s read some comics and write some reviews! Like some of my DC favorites and then a whole bunch of new X of Swords issues.
Comic Book of the Week goes to New Mutants #13, of all things. Despite my general exhaustion with X of Swords, I liked the character focus of this issue.
Meanwhile, I finished off the second season of The Boys and I loved it! Great show, fun adaptation; I’m definitely enjoying The Boys and don’t mind the changes from comic to show. It’s a fun adventure.

We’re back! Back again! More comic reviews! Because why not? It’s a mild day in the middle of August and we’ve only got a couple of comics to review this week, mostly X-Men books.
Comic Book of the Week goes to The Green Lantern: Season Two # 6 because it’s a fun comic and I wanted to shake things up a bit this week.
Meanwhile, I’ve decided to read the entirety of Robert Kirkman’s Invincible. The compendiums are at a price I can afford on Amazon and my birthday is coming up. So I’ll let you know how it all goes in a year or so!
Speaking of letting you know how things are, I also read the second volume of Green Lantern: Earth One this week and it was pretty fun! On par with the first volume. It’s a quality GL re-imagining.

Welcome back to actual comic book reviews, everybody! I’ve actually got some reviews for you this week, so I’m pleased! We’ve got new issues of Batman, Lost on Planet Earth and even the return of Strange Academy! Wild!
Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Grant Morrison’s extremely wacky The Green Lantern! This issue is a bit easier to understand than some previous issues have been, and I like that. My brain no does crazy good.
Meanwhile, I finally finished reading the first volume of Tim Seeley’s Money Shot from Vault Comics and I really enjoyed it! Great art, fun concept and an all around good time. Highly recommended. Other than that, my next read is the big, hard cover first volume of Ms. Marvel I bought for the fun of it. The series is definitely holding up on a reread.
Also, check back here on Monday for the first look at the sequel to my own comic, Gamer Girl & Vixen! We’ve finally got some pages to show off!

Slowly but surely, the comic book industry is on its way back. For the second week in a row, I’ve got an actual pile of comics to read and review! That’s a lot of fun.
We’ve got The Green Lantern, Strange Adventures and a look into new BOOM! Studios comic Wynd by James Tynion IV. I saw it was available and thought I’d give it a try. But Comic Book of the Week goes to the final issue of Zeb Wells’ Ant-Man mini-series for a contented wrap-up.
Meanwhile, I’ve started burning through My Hero Academia. It’s a fun show, and just catchy enough that I keep watching one right after another instead of spacing them out for the purposes of making quarantine more bearable. What will I watch when I’m done?!

Would you like at that, we’ve got a normal comic book today! The news in the world is that comic books are going to come back towards the end of the month. Marvel and DC are making plans, releasing schedules and putting some comics digital-first. So we will have new comics again!
The return starts this week with a new issue of Grant Morrison’s The Green Lantern! Too bad it’s probably the weakest issue yet! Man, if this is what comics are going to be like coming back, we should be worried…
Meanwhile, life goes on in quarantine. I’ve started walking, finally. I splurged on some LEGO, finally. I watched The Midnight Gospel, which was good. I didn’t realize when HBO’s free streaming would end, so I didn’t get to finish the first season of Succession. And I’ve been playing XCom 2, which is really fun! So at least I’m keeping busy.
