Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 68 review

It’s been a while since I’ve done a full review of a Ninja Turtles comic – more than a year even. For a time it was because I still wasn’t quite sure how I felt about the direction the series has taken since the 50th issue, but I have a better idea now.

The Unworthy Thor 5 review

Since Secret Wars ended, Odinson (the original Thor) has been missing. This mini-series caught us up with him, on his obsessive quest to become worthy again, or to find something that can replace his Mjolnir. That quest led him to teaming up with Beta Ray Bill, being the Collector’s captive, and an all-out brawl with some of the Marvel Universe’s most powerful characters. The previous issue ended with Odinson about to grab onto the Ultimate Universe’s Mjolnir while the Collector fought Thanos’s allies.

Action Comics 976 review

This issue concludes the 4-part crossover with the other Superman series. The first issue (Superman 18) started off with Superman and Lois Lane spending a night together with their son, Jon. Everything got weird when their house, and Jon, started disappearing in a strange blue flame. Action Comics 975 revealed MXYZPTLK as the culprit – a Superman character I know almost nothing about.

Comics of March 22, 2017

It was only last week when the third of the three major Marvel events that seemed to run at the same time ended, and through Marvel’s June Solicitations, we’ve learned of yet another event/crossover coming up. Seriously Marvel, slow down. Also, I know I’m not the only one frustrated by this, but Old Man Logan is showing up on way too many X-Men teams. We get it, the Logan movie is popular, but he’s not the only character in that movie who’s been getting very positive reception. So far, All-New Wolverine isn’t on any team books while Old Man Logan has what, 3 or 4 in addition to his solo series? I’m capping my Old Man Logan books at one, and as of right now, it’s probably going to be X-Men: Gold. At least X-23 is getting an Edge of the Venomverse alternate though – that could be fun.

Anyway, the comics I picked up this week include Hulk 4, The Unworthy Thor 5, Batgirl 9, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 68, Detective Comics 953 and Action Comics 976. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

Red Sonja 3 review

This cover says everything you need to know about the comic’s general mood, plus it’s awesome.

There are a few reasons why I haven’t reviewed this series yet. One, the current volume of Red Sonja usually comes out on my comic heavy weeks, and there’s usually a lot of other stuff I’d like to review. Two, it took me a few issues to decide how I feel about this series. And three, I ended up finding the previous run kind of underwhelming after a good start, causing a bit more hesitation here. But we’re three issues into the current volume of Red Sonja – 4 if you include the 25 cent 0 issue that mostly acted as a preview. That’s enough to get a general idea of how I feel, so let’s do this.

Star Wars Poe Dameron 12 review

In the previous issue of Poe Dameron, Poe figured out who kept leaking information about his squad to the First Order. Of course he realized it a bit too late as he fell under attack by Agent Terex. Terex himself has gone rogue from The First Order, contacting a bunch of mercenary friends with his own plan to destroy the Resistance, against the wishes of the First Order. It’s an intense situation that left Poe stranded on a planet, his X-Wing heavily damaged.

The Mighty Thor 17 review

The Asgard/Shi’ar war started off much differently than I expected. It started off with a brief invasion of Asgard by the Shi’ar, and then Thor found herself teleported to a chamber, face to face with the gods of the Shi’ar. The second issue (last month’s), was mostly the beginning of a series of challenges between Thor and the Shi’ar deities, while Sif convinced Cul to retaliate with a brilliantly written speech. This is the issue where things really start to pick up.
