My friends, this has been a week. I had to take my car in for some repairs and that cost me an arm and a leg. And then the repair shop messed up my automatic seat adjuster, which was already pretty fragile. So I’m not only out a lot of money this week, but now my seat is stuck in a somewhat uncomfortable way! I need to buy a new car, but in this economy? In this market? Ugh. Anyway, this is all to say I didn’t get to too many comics this week out of sheer sadness.
Comic Book of the Week goes to X-Men #18 because it was the better of the two I actually managed to read and review this week. It’s an OK story.
Meanwhile, I haven’t played with my new Playstation 5 yet, because I want to finish Pokemon Violet before moving on to a new game. So that’s just collecting dust. And I finished Wednesday, which was really good. Basically trying to find anything to lessen the pain of this past week.

Interesting week for new comics! Not too much on my read list this week, but I got to try out some new titles that launched from Marvel. There’s a new Invincible Iron Man, by Gerry Duggan, and then Monica Rambeau’s first ongoing solo series. Both are solid starting points.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Monica Rambeau: Photon #1 because I felt it was the stronger, more interesting of the two.
Meanwhile, I’ve started playing Marvel’s Midnight Suns and it’s pretty fun so far. I loved the X-Com games, and I kinda wish this was more like those. But it’s solid as its own thing, so no real complaints. I’ve also been playing a ton of Marvel Snap, so I’m just up to my eyeballs in Marvel video games right now. I’m also heading to see Avatar: The Way of Water this weekend, so hopefully that will be nice.
