Here’s my second first impressions video – keep in mind that it’s unscripted. While watching over it, I noticed that I repeated words such as “Issue” a lot, sorry about that. I’ll try to do that less next week. I’m still open for suggestions on how to improve them. I’ll add links to full reviews as they’re posted.
In case you’d rather not watch the video, these are the comics I bought this week: Superior Spider-Man 1, Fantastic Four 3, Avengers Arena 3, Cable and X-Force 3, Thor: God of Thunder 4, X-Men Legacy 4, Scarlet Spider 13, Wolverine and the X-Men 23, Action Comics 16 and Animal Man 16. Here are my thoughts in one two sentences each.
Cable and X-Force 3 was great. It kept a strong character focus on Cable and Hope, while developing the story a lot; this is shaping up to be a great series.
Thor: God of Thunder 4 was simply epic – does this series really need any reviews by now? Pick this comic up if you’re the least bit curious about Thor, even if you’ve never read a comic in your life.
X-Men Legacy 4 was … meh; Legion still doesn’t have much character work and we’re four issues in. There’s still potential here but I’m losing hope fast, and I probably won’t pick up the next issue.
Wolverine and the X-Men wasn’t anything special. The circus storyline is at last over, and hopefully this series will be entertaining again.
Animal Man 16 was good. It was entertaining build up for next issue’s Rotworld climax.
