Here we go again! Last week, I complained that there were too few comics released that I read and review. This week apparently makes up for that deficit! We’ve got Spider-Man, we’ve got Hawkeye, we’ve got Iceman, we’ve got so dang many comics! Including the debut of X-Men Red!
Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Runaways! It’s a delightful issue capping off the first storyline. And just in time for me to finish the Runaways TV show, which I also enjoyed.
I’ll talk more about the Runaways TV show in a couple weeks. For now, I liked it and am looking forward to a second season.
Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #795, Batman #40, Harley Quinn #37, Hawkeye #15, Iceman #10, Runaways #6 and X-Men Red #1.
Welcome to the first comic reviews of the new year! I don’t have any real comic book resolutions this year, or any new comics I’m particularly looking forward to. I’m just going to like what I like and read what I want — while making more of my own comics!
Light week for me this week. We’ve got another wonderful Batman issue, and I check back in with Captain America and Iceman. Comic Book of the Week goes to a rather enjoyable issue of Hawkeye, which uses a guest appearance from Hawkeye to great effect.
Anybody read X-Men: Grand Design? It’s a neat little comic that recaps the early days/years of the original X-Men and the various supporting characters. It’s very specific in a lot of fun ways. And it had an extended bit on the Mimic joining the team, so I was happy with that.
Comic Reviews: Batman #28, Captain America #697, Hawkeye #14 and Iceman #9.
Happy New York City Comic-Con Weekend! I didn’t make it out to New York this year, but it’s always a great show! And we’ve heard a lot of cool news so far for the year in comics ahead! And it’s always nice when a big Comic-Con weekend delivers a great comics week!
Lots of great stuff to read this week, with stellar issues of some of my favorites, like Harley Quinn and Iceman! But I’ve got to give Comic Book of the Week to the new issue of Batman, which delivers a solid, powerful conclusion to the War of Jokes and Riddles!
Plus, Batman and Catwoman are gonna get married! That’s always fun. I love weddings!
Comic Reviews: Batman #32, Harley Quinn #29, Hawkeye #11 and Iceman #6.
Funny happenstance. So there I was reading my regular comics this week, and something kind of hilarious popped up. Apparently, this was the week for Marvel superheroes to hang out on the big letter ‘H’ in the Hollywood sign!
In Iceman, Bobby Drake and Warren Worthington kick back on the H after their Champions reunion to talk about their feelings.
And then from the new issue of Hawkeye, here’s Kate Bishop standing over the villainous Madame Masque — who is in a clone body of Kate Bishop, which is a long story.
I’d like to think that these two events happened within only a day or two of each other. Life is just much funnier that way.
Also, we need an Iceman/Hawkeye crossover story! Just because I like awesome things.
Wanna know a neat trick to make someone not feel like reading and reviewing a bunch of comics? Send him on vacation with a head cold! That’s me, ladies and gentlemen! Ugh. But I did read some comics and I’m going to review a couple of them, because I’m dedicated!
I read a couple of comics and they were all really good, like the new Batman and Hawkeye. But I think I’m going to give Comic Book of the Week to Iceman again, because it’s a really good comic. He fights the Juggernaut!
Beyond that, the new season of BoJack Horseman started, and that’s largely what I’m doing this weekend!
Comic Reviews: Batman #30, Hawkeye #10 and Iceman #5.
