In honor of Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday, actor Evangeline Lilly shared the first picture of her in costume as the Wasp for the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp sequel! She looks pretty great!
I like the costume, though I think it could use a bit more color. Ant-Man is probably my favorite movie superhero costume, and its red coloring really helps it to stand out. Wasp is just black with some tiny bits of color and piping. The costume could use a touch more pizzazz, you know what I’m saying?
Still, looks great! Can’t wait for Ant-Man and the Wasp!
Kind of a quiet week for comics this week. There were a lot of good releases, but not many on my normal review pile. In any other situation, this might prompt me to try out some new comics. But nope! I’m a bit too lazy for that!
Instead, we’ve got new and entertaining issues of Batman, Iron Fist and Hawkeye, as well as Unstoppable Wasp, the adorable and awesome Comic Book of the Week!
I’m serious, it’s mostly adorable and awesome.
After a great pair of issues focusing on Janet Van Dyne, I kind of want this title changed to The Unstoppable Wasp and the Regular Wasp! Or writer Jeremy Whitley should get a Janet Van Dyne comic!
Comic Reviews: Batman #28, Hawkeye #9, Iron Fist #6 and Unstoppable Wasp #8.
Oh man oh man! Spider-Man: Homecoming! I’m writing this opening paragraph before seeing Spider-Man: Homecoming and I don’t have time to update it with my thoughts on the film. I’m hoping I liked the movie! And I hope you henchies like it too!
Kind of a light week on comics this week, but it’s giving me time to catch up on some titles where I fell behind. So check out new reviews for Iron Fist and Unstoppable Wasp! The latter of which wins Comic Book of the Week for a really nice issue focusing on the original Wasp, Janet Van Dyne!
I think this is the most I’ve ever cared about Janet Van Dyne. Not to say she’s not a great character, she’s just never been one of my beloved characters. But this issue does a great job with her and Nadia!
Comic Reviews: Batman #26, Harley Quinn #23, Hawkeye #8, Iron Fist #5 and Unstoppable Wasp #7.
So, uh, I kind of went a little overboard with the reviews this week, everybody. Sorry about that. It just so happens that a metric ton of my favorite Marvel comics all come out on the same day, and I didn’t want to skip over any of them! So be prepared for everything from Amazing Spider-Man to Unstoppable Wasp to Mosaic to the final issue of Power Man and Iron Fist! Plus I wanted to try out a couple more ResurrXion comics.
Fortunately, this week also delivered one of the best issues of Silver Surfer yet, an easy Comic Book of the Week! That comic is magical! Silver Surfer #10 combines tragic romance with all my favorite bits of Silver Surfer mythology, making for a wonderful issue.
Meanwhile, I really, really, really want to get back into reading more DC Comics. Now that Gotham Academy is coming to an end and Greg Rucka is leaving Wonder Woman, I’m going to try to get caught up on those two series so I can review them through the end.
Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #26, Detective Comics #954, Mosaic #7, Power Man and Iron Fist #15, Silver Surfer #10, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #19, Unstoppable Wasp #4, Weapon X #1 and X-Men Blue #1.
By the time you’re reading this, I am preparing for an incoming shipment of Gamer Girl & Vixen graphic novels! The books I raised money for last Spring will be here by the end of the month, and my partner and I are preparing all the packages to ship out to everybody who ordered a copy!
Haven’t ordered your copy yet? Don’t worry, they’ll be available soon!
Until then, we’ve got a bunch of regular, awesome comics to enjoy! And not that I was going for any special theme, but this week it’s all badass solo lady comics, and one comic about a filthy hobo. Good times. Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Hawkeye for wrapping up its first storyline in style.
Kate Bishop actually made two appearances this week! She makes a quick cameo in America #1, but unfortunately, I wasn’t as big a fan of that new series.
Comic Reviews: America #1, The Dregs #2, Harley Quinn #15, Hawkeye #4, and Unstoppable Wasp #3.
