Batman and Catwoman are getting married! Batman proposed in the latest issue of his solo series, and even though I don’t think Catwoman has given him an answer yet, I hope they go all-out with the superhero wedding. I want Nightwing as the best man, the Robins as the groomsmen, Harley and Ivy as the bridesmaids and Ace the Bathound as the ring bearer. I want the seats filled with Justice Leaguers and Outsiders!
Who doesn’t love a superhero wedding?
There have been tons upon tons of superhero relationships over the years. Once upon a time, they were the bread and butter of superhero comics. Clark Kent and Lois Lane are the standard bearer. Everybody knows about them! But what about marriage? How often do these classic superheroes actually tie the knot with their live interests? Lois and Clark did it. Who else?
Join me after the jump to celebrate with my six favorite comic book marriages!
Tough week! I don’t know if somebody dumped my Cheerios or what, but I wasn’t as thrilled about this week’s comics as I was last week. Last week was great! Last week was hilarious. This week…not so much. Why can’t you be more like last week, this week?
We’ve got a ton of comics though, from Astonishing Ant-Man to Saga to Silk to We Are Robin! This week even sees the long-awaited return of Karnak by Warren Ellis! Unfortunately, it does not live up to the excitement of the first issue.
Fortunately, the new issue of Hellcat is as great as all the rest have been!
Totally justifies the random Doctor Strange cameo. I think this makes at least three at Marvel.
Comic Reviews: Angela: Queen of Hel #5, Astonishing Ant-Man #5, Karnak #2, Patsy Walker a.k.a. Hellcat #3, Saga #34, Silk #5 and We Are Robin #9.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to one and all! This was a pretty big week for comics, but it was also a pretty big week for Christmas. If you’re reading this on Saturday morning, I’m likely still with my family, celebrating. Such are the benefits of having both Christmas and the day after off from work.
So my list of reviews is a bit shorter this week due to the time crunch. Still, I read some really good comics this week, including new issues of Saga and Robin War, as well as the next chapter of Dark Knight III: The Master Race.
Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of Patsy Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat! It’s a fun, colorful and very savvy new comic, though it does skew a little too closely to some of Marvel’s other offerings, like Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. Still, Squirrel Girl doesn’t have moments like this.
No, that’s not how Hellcat is draw throughout the entire comic. That’s just for funnsies!
Comic Reviews: Dark Knight III #2, Patsy Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat #1, Robin: Son of Batman #7 and Saga #32.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Or, at least, close enough! Due to that big American holiday, my reviews might be a little light this week. There are a ton of comics coming out these days that I enjoy, and I just couldn’t get too many helpings this week! But we’ve got the first issue of Dark Knight III, which is grabbing all the headlines. And we’ve got the always welcome return of Saga!
Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, a cute new comic from Marvel that resurrects an old franchise and gives it a 2015 spin.
Comic Reviews: All-New Wolverine #2, Dark Knight III #1, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1, Saga #31 and Silk #1.
This is the week. There are a lot of good comics out this week, and I wish I’d found the time to get to even more of them, but this week is special because of the return of two of my favorite comics: Ms. Marvel and The Mighty Thor! These are some of the best in the industry right now, and their returns are most welcome!
But surprisingly, Comic Book of the Week goes to Astonishing Ant-Man #2! Another one of Marvel’s gems, the new issue of Ant-Man delivers a wonderfully entertaining issue that edges out the two more hotly anticipated comics because of the return of a recent favorite character of mine!
Let’s welcome back Miss Thing!
And as a special bonus later today, tune in to the Geekamole Youtube channel this afternoon as I join frequent Henchman commenter Maus Merryjest for his weekly pop culture podcast! We talk about Teen Titans, Iceman and much more! If you’ve ever wanted to listen to me talk about comics instead of reading them, now is your chance.
Doubly also, we’ve got some big Gamer Girl & Vixen news coming soon! And if you helped out my Kickstarter last summer, then your comics should be arriving very soon!
Comic Reviews: Astonishing Ant-Man #2, Huck #1, Mighty Thor #1, Ms. Marvel #1, Spider-Woman #1, Titans Hunt #2 and Vader Down #1.
