Detective Comics 948 review

dtc-cv948-dsNext Month, Batwoman will have her own solo series again, written by Marguerite Bennett. So why not have her co-write a couple issues of Detective Comics, the Batman team book where Batwoman is just as prominent as Batman himself?

Inhumans vs. X-Men 2 review

ivx2016002-dc11It feels like this event is a long-time coming. Not because the terrigen mist story arc has been going on for years mind you, but because it’s basically a rehash of Decimation and the Legacy Virus, two long-form story arcs that saw the mutants of the Marvel Universe facing extinction. As much as I’ve avoided most of the build-up to this lately, the 0 issue was actually really good, and so was the first issue of this event. Let’s see if issue 2 continues that trend.

All-New Wolverine 16 review

anwolv2015016-covcolEnemy of the State II started off with the trigger scent being dumped over a small town, forcing Laura to kill everyone there. It was an emotionally rough way to begin this story arc, and at the end of the last issue, she was captured by Kimura. Kimura is basically Laura’s Sabretooth, but she’s probably worse than that considering she’s got unbreakable skin and started torturing Laura from a very young age. That’s where this issue begins.

Comics of January 11, 2017

On the one hand, Marvel is coming out with way too many event comics lately. Civil War II was lackluster overall, with a story that moved way too slow for its own good, failing to live up to the “Civil War” name with only one actual big battle between superheroes. We’re in the middle of Inhumans vs. X-Men, and the Monsters Unleashed event is going to start soon too. And yet I read Civil War II, I’m reading IvX and I intend to at least check out Monsters Unleashed. I guess I’m not helping.

The comics I picked up this week include Inhumans vs. X-Men 2, Star Wars Poe Dameron 10, The Mighty Thor 15, All-New Wolverine 16, Supergirl 5, Wonder Woman 14 and Detective Comics 948. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

Batman 14 review

bm_cv14_dsAlthough I really like Batman, I’m not overly familiar with the comic version of the Batman/Catwoman relationship. From what I gather, it’s complicated. Sometimes they love each other, and other times they seem to want to kill each other. At some point recently, Catwoman was sentenced to the death penalty for killing a bunch of people. However, for helping Batman deal with Bane in the previous arc, I Am Suicide, Batman successfully reduced her sentence to a life sentence without parole.

Unworthy Thor 3 review

thorunworth2016003-dc11Odinson is in the clenches of the Collector, who’s also taken Old Asgard into his massive collection of trinkets from across the Universe. Why? Ultimate Thor’s hammer somehow landed on Old Asgard. Since he couldn’t lift the hammer, he instead took the entire city ruins. This issue picks up with another of Odinson’s attempts to grab the alternate universe hammer, only to be stopped just at the end.

Superman 14 review

sm_cv14_ds-1300x2000So I only picked up 3 comics this week. That makes the usual first impressions post useless since I’ll eventually review all three comics anyway. I picked up Superman 14, Batman 14 and The Unworthy Thor 3. With that said, let’s start with Superman 14.
