Quick update/ quick first impressions

This is just a quick update. I was going to post my first impressions for the week – I had them all typed up, but the laptop I was using has a slight problem. Every time I try to turn it on, it comes up with a “fan error” and shuts off. I don’t feel like retyping everything I’ve already written, so I’m just going to rush through each of the issues I picked up this week and write my thoughts with one or two words each. If I can recover the file, I’ll post it whenever I can.

Thanos Rising 2 – alright

Age of Ultron – pretty good

Indestructible Hulk 7 – very good

Superior Spider-Man (I think 9) – superior

X-Men Legacy 10 – weirdly good

All-New X-Men 11 – very good

Red She Hulk (forget the exact number) – somewhat disappointing (but still good)

X-Factor (655 I think) – best of the week (that I read)

Animal Man – good (although Buddy Baker is barely in it)

The shop I went to happened to have a moving sale today, so I decided to give Young Avengers a second chance. I picked up issues 3 and 4. As with the first two, I can tell that they’re good, but it’s not really my style. I did enjoy these more than the first two though, so it’s possible that this might grow on me. Whether I pick up issue 5 or not depends on how I’m feeling, but I certainly don’t regret picking these up. The one page with the alien kid shooting the blob creatures was probably the most creative splash page I’ve ever seen in a comic.

Anyway, I’m on vacation, so there won’t be any full reviews this week.


About healed1337

I am a relatively new comic book fan writing this blog for other new comic book fans and/or people who are interested in comics but don't know where to start. I've always been interested in writing, to the point where I have a college Creative Writing Certificate and I'm currently a year 2 Journalism student. I also have another blog where I mostly make fun of bad movies - www.healed1337.blogspot.com As for how I got into comics, I've always had a passing interest in superheroes: most notably Batman, Spider-man and the X-Men. Until February of 2011 (I think,) my only experience with any of these franchises came from the movies and video games. Shortly after I bought Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 however, I decided to check out X-23, Wolverine's female clone. I ended up reading her Innocence Lost origin story and enjoyed it. From there, I started reading various X-Men comics and it quickly exploded into my newest hobby. My other interests/hobbies include video games, movies, music, playing sports, my dogs and weird news.

    Thanos Rising was good.

    AU was pretty cool. A lot of fun.

    Indestructible Hulk was good. Nice seeing that Hulk actually didn’t lift the hammer. That was pretty funny, actually.

    Superior Spider-Man was good. Interesting development.

    XML was great. I love that Spurrier’s raising the question of whether the world might be better off without mutants, and that the point is being made by someone who’s not a hate-filled zealot.

    ANXM was great. Love it.

    Red She Hulk was still solid.

    X-Factor was awesome.

    As for YA: Yeah, Noh-Varr’s badass rescue was an amazing layout. McKelvie is doing some incredible layouts in that book. And Gillen, as always, is killing it on the writing. The scene between Loki and Hulkling – so good.
