I Hate Fairyland 12 review

Way back, I reviewed the first issue of I Hate Fairyland. Back then, I thought I wouldn’t bother reviewing any more issues in this series. That’s not because I didn’t enjoy it (I thoroughly did), but because after a while it would all be the same kind of humour. After a while, those reviews would get repetitive. That remains true, but I figured it’s time I at least gave this series a second review, because it deserves more attention.

Red Sonja 4 review

Last month, I reviewed this series for the first time. It took me a while to figure out how I felt about Red Sonja being in the modern world all the sudden. The third issue (the fourth if you include the 0 issue) is where I started to actually enjoy this series instead of just thinking that I did. That said, there was still a lot of mystery as to how Sonja, and an enemy sorcerer of hers, ended up in the modern world.

Star Wars: Poe Dameron 13 review

For the most part, Star Wars Poe Dameron has mostly been running with shorter story arcs, 2 or 3 issues long at the most. After Poe discovered there’s a traitor within his squadron, he kicked off a longer story arc that felt like quite the spy thriller. That said, he’s been struggling with Agent Terex of the First Order since the beginning of the series. Agent Terex is a brutal and very intelligent warrior, but in this story arc he goes rogue to chase Poe down, even against Captain Phasma’s direct orders.

Comics of April 19, 2017

So out of the six comics I picked up this week, only one of them is Marvel. It’s unusual for me, even with Marvel’s total lack of being able to stagger their releases properly. I was planning on picking up X-Men Gold 2, but it was delayed a week. I completely understand why. If you don’t know what happened with the first issue, just look up the controversy regarding X-Men Gold 1. I don’t feel the need to comment on it.

Anyway, the comics I picked up this week include Star Wars: Poe Dameron 13, Super Sons 3, Red Sonja 4, Monstress 11, I Hate Fairyland 12 and Superman 21. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

novel review – Heir of Fire

I read the first book in this series, Throne of Glass, just over a year ago. I would sum my thoughts on the book with “a good book with flaws”. The second book, Crown of Midnight, was a huge improvement over the first in pretty much every single way, kind of like Illona Andrews’ Magic Burns improving over Magic Bites. The third book in Sarah J. Maas’s series, Heir of Fire, is a complete game changer.

Heir of Fire is the third book in Maas’s fantasy series. The first two are in a lot of ways, down to earth. They took place entirely in a kingdom where magic is locked away, where nobody can seem to use it. There’s a mystery involving the King of Adarlan, his castle, and the missing magic itself that’s slowly revealed over the course of the two books. There’s also a lot of mystery surrounding the main character, Celaena, an assassin who’s named the King’s champion at the end of the first book. Heir of Fire reveals so much about what’s going on, while still leaving plenty of mystery left for the rest of the series.

There will be spoilers for Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight throughout this review, since talking about the previous entry’s reveals are necessary to talk about this entry. If you don’t want the spoilers, let me point you to my review for the first two books.

Supergirl 8 review

Like the previous issue of Supergirl, this one is kind of a one-off story.  Most of the issue is Supergirl hanging out with Superman, her Kryptonian Cousin.

Doctor Aphra 6 review

Spawning out of Kieron Gillen’s Darth Vader series, Doctor Aphra stars a morally questionable archeologist set during the Civil War era in the Star Wars Universe. In a lot of ways this series feels like Indiana Jones in a Science-Fiction Fantasy environment. She’s hunting for dangerous artifacts while also being chased by the Empire. Oh, and unlike the Indiana Jones series, the first major story arc involves the archeologist’s father.
