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.
