Merry Christmas, everybody! It’s that magical sort of year when Christmas falls on a Saturday, coinciding with my comic book reviews! If you’re reading this on Christmas Day, more power to you! We had some nice comics this week, though everything is overshadowed by the stellar artistic achievements of the new issue of Nightwing.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #87 for an artistic achievement that will hopefully go down in legend.
Meanwhile, I loved the Hawkeye finale and will have a review up one of these days. It was quite joyous, and accomplished everything I could have wanted. Hawkeye is probably my second favorite of the Marvel shows right now, I enjoyed it that much. I also tried the first issue of Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit this week and it was not for me. It’s not terrible, but it’s a little wonky.

Comic books, comic books, we all love comic books! Good week of good, ground-breaking comics this week. And surprisingly, no Marvel comics on my pile! Just some quality DC, like Nightwing and Son of Kal-El, and then some quality Power Rangers.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #117 for a fantastic conclusion to Fear State! All of the characters have strong moments, and I really enjoyed the very finale of the story. This Batman run ends on a definite high note for me.
Meanwhile, against all odds, I’m watching Hit-Monkey on Hulu! I didn’t even realize this show actually got made until that first trailer came out a month ago. I thought for sure it had fallen by the wayside, like that Tigra/Dazzler cartoon. But Hit-Monkey is actually really fun. Definitely recommended.

Here we go! Another week of good comics. Another week around this Earth. Another week of the usual stuff. Lots of comics this week, especially from DC. Batman, Black Manta, Superman; it’s a real juicy pile!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #85 for an issue rich in character and heart, even as it ties into a bigger story.
Meanwhile, I have been having a pretty crap week. Just one headache on top of another on top of a literal headache. But still I soldier on. Finally got to play Back 4 Blood with a full crew of my friends. I’ve been having a lot of fun with that game. I finally got back into reading Invincible after watching the TV show. That’s going nicely. And a new bookstore opened in my town, and they are selling Gamer Girl & Vixen comics! So that’s a hoot.

Happy vacation, everybody! Vacation for me, that is. I’m finally taking a week off from work for the first time this year, and oh man, I needed it. I need a week to just relax and do not much of anything. Thankfully, I’ve got the likes of Batman, X-Men and X-Corp to kick it off.
Comic Book of the Week goes to X-Men: Onslaught Revelation for a truly excellent and exciting end to this chapter of the story. I have loved Way of X, more so than I thought I would, and the first part of Sy Spurrier’s X-Men epic has come to an exciting end!
Meanwhile, I don’t have much planned for my vacation. Can’t exactly travel anywhere. I’ll go visit my parents, I’ve got a dentist’s appointment, and Venom: Let There Be Carnage will come out at the end of the week. That should be fun. Mostly I’ll just relax and spend some more time playing No Man’s Sky. It’s also pretty fun!
