This week’s pull list is quite small, which only means that next week, the last full comic week before Christmas, is going to be massive. There are already 18 comics on my list for next week, and there might be even more. But let’s talk about this week.
There are only five comics on my pull list this week. They include Avengers AI 7, Uncanny X-Men 15, Cable and X-Force 17, Batman 26 and Batgirl 26. Here are my first impressions. Links to full reviews will be added as they’re posted.
And as promised, I would read the locally made comic this past weekend. I didn’t review it until now because I always read a comic twice before I review it. But here it is – my first webcomic/independent comic review. This probably won’t be a regular thing.
Avengers AI 7 was fun. It has very little to do with AI’s main story, instead opting for an Inhumanity tie-in. Daredevil makes a guest appearance as Henry Pym and Doombot help him find a missing client. It’s not a surprise that the client turns out to be an Inhuman. Doombot really shines in this issue, and daredevil’s inclusion doesn’t feel all that out of place. My only real complaint is about the art – body proportions seem to be all over the place, with oddly angled faces and weird body shapes. It’s not terrible, but it is a little distracting. I’m not sure if I’d recommend this to Avengers AI regulars as it does little with the main story, but it’s worth reading for those who are interested in inhumanity, or if you just enjoy the three characters I’ve mentioned.
Cable and X-Force 17 was fun. It concludes Forge’s struggle with The Adversary, while each of the other split teams finish their own fights. Each story is fun in its own way. I wouldn’t call it a brilliant story, but it’s fun enough. Cable and X-Force regulars should read this.
