As an experiment (and because I received video editing software for Christmas) I’m doing this week’s first impressions post in video form. Let me know what you think of this format and if you have any suggestions on how I can improve it (if I decide to stick with it).
The comics I picked up this week include New Avengers 1, Morbius: The Living Vampire 1, All New X-Men 5, Iron Man 5, Red She Hulk 61, Venom 29, Superman 15 and Batman Incorporated 6. My regular reviews will still be in text form and I’ll add links to them as I post them.
In case you can’t view the video, below are my thoughts on today’s issues in one sentence each.
New Avengers 1 was a good issue that focused primarily on Black Panther and his thoughts on the Illuminati group.
Morbius 1 was a great setup for the series.
All New X-Men 5 was the most character focused entry into the series so far (mostly focusing on Jean Grey and both Beasts) and it was probably the best issue in this series so far.
Iron Man 5 was good for the most part – Greg Land’s art held it back. This is probably my last issue of the series though because I’m not really an Iron Man fan.
Red She Hulk 5 revealed much of the story that’s been teased at in the first four issues, and it’s still just as awesome as the previous issues.
Venom 29 was just ok – it hasn’t been as good since Rick Remender left the title. I might be dropping this series soon.
Superman 15 was mediocre at best. I don’t care about this crossover anymore – I’m most likely dropping it, and will start reading Supergirl again after it’s done.
Batman Incorporated 6 was great as usual.
