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!

Comics are still working their way back into our lives, with bigger and fancier release dates promised in a couple months. For now, I’m making due with what comes out that I actually want to read. This week, none of my usual comics came out. And I didn’t feel like catching up on all five issues of Hawkeye: Freefall.
So I checked out the second issue of Lost on Planet Earth from Comixology Originals! And I didn’t care for it. It’s got all the makings of a good comic, but the execution is failing me.
Meanwhile, what else am I doing? I finished a reread of Batgirl of Burnside after buying up all the tpbs. It’s still good, and I’m enjoying her arrival in the Harley Quinn cartoon (which is amazing!). She-Ra and the Princesses of Power delivered an awesome finale. Solar Opposites was pretty good. And I didn’t care for Scoob! And that’s my quarantine life!
Comic Reviews: Lost on Planet Earth #2.
The fall of comics continues with the cancellation of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. There were also no new comics sent to stores this week, with most of the comic shops closed anyway. And more and more pro creators are being told to put down their pencils. But I’m not a professional (yet), so I’mma gonna see what I can find.
And it’s the first issue of Lost on Planet Earth, one of Comixology’s new original comics that debuted its first issue digitally this week! How nice!
Meanwhile, I just did a rewatch of the Watchmen TV show on HBO, and that was fun. I’m gonna start some of those free HBO shows next, like Barry. And I’m on the verge of beating Persona 5 the video game. So I’m keeping busy in self-quarantine. I hope the rest of you are doing well!
Still haven’t bought that Nintendo Switch though…
