This week, I face some hard truths about me and the Krakoa Era of X-Men comics. As much as I love the whole premise, I have yet to really find an individual series that really speaks to me — at least not one that lasts more than 5 issues. X-Men Red and Marauders go under the microscope today.
Comic Book of the Week goes to One-Star Squadron #5 for the toughest hit in comics this week.
Meanwhile, I really enjoyed Outlaws on Amazon Prime. Check out that show if you get the chance. Now I’m finally getting around to watching Sweet Tooth on Netflix and hoping for the best. And this weekend I’ll be checking out Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and hoping for the best for my boy Knuckles the Echidna!

Good news and bad news, everybody! The good news is I’ll be going to see The Batman today and I’m expecting to have a good time! The bad news there might not be reviews next week, as I will be out of state attending my sister’s wedding! That’s good news for her! But we’ll see if I have any time before I leave to read and review some comics.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Static: Season One #6 for an awesome, heroic finale to this first storyline. Not sure why this comic needs seasons, but this season finale was cool as heck.
Meanwhile, I beat Pokemon Legends: Arceus and now I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to splurge on Horizon Forbidden West yet, at least not until after I get back from my sister’s wedding next weekend. So maybe I’ll take up reading for the next week? We’ll see.

Greetings good readers and welcome to another batch of random comic book reviews from this random guy on the internet. Maybe you’ll agree with me, maybe you won’t, I guess we’re about to find out. I’ve got oodles of comics this week, everything from Power Rangers to Nightwing to We Have Demons!
Comic Book of the Week goes to She-Hulk #1 because I want more people to know about and read this comic. Rainbow Rowell returns to Marvel Comics after Runaways came to an end, and I can’t wait to see what she does with the Shulkster! This first issue is off to a good start.
Meanwhile, I finished The Expanse at long last and loved the ending. Obviously I wish this show could continue indefinitely, but it came to a satisfying conclusion. I highly recommend watching The Expanse. Elsewhere in pop culture, I’m currently rereading X-Statix after the second omnibus volume came out. It’s fun, and still holds up. And I’m playing Gears of War: Tactics, which is Gears of War meets XCOM. Also fun. I’m enjoying my various medias these days.

Brace yourselves, a new She-Hulk series is coming, and you best believe it’s going to be a humdinger! There have been plenty of She-Hulk comics over the years, and I’ve enjoyed most of them just fine. But I am particularly excited about this new one because writer Rainbow Rowell is going to be the wordsmith! Rowell blew me away with her work on The Runaways comic over the past several years, easily one of my favorite recent comics from Marvel. I was very sad when that comic came to an end.
Now I’m very happy that Rowell is sticking with Marvel and is tackling a character like She-Hulk! With art by Rogê Antônio.
I am very excited to get my hands on a new Rainbow Rowell comic and I think she’ll have a lot of fun with She-Hulk. She’s apparently taking the character back to basics, wherein Jennifer Walters juggles being a superhero and a lawyer. That sounds fine by me. I haven’t been reading Jason Aaron’s Avengers comic, wherein She-Hulk is more of a brute-type Hulk, so I have no problem with shifting the character.
“She-Hulk is the best of the best,” Rowell said. “She’s smart, she’s funny — and she’s really and truly heroic (all that and she has the best hair in comics). Jen has always been at the top of my Marvel wishlist, and I’m thrilled to be writing her next chapter.”
The new series is coming in January, and you best believing I’ll be buying!
