Comics of March 5, 2014

As the previous post said, my pickups are altered because of a family emergency that I won’t expand on. I am planning on picking up New Warriors 2, but won’t be able to until at least Friday. My pull list was small this week anyway, so onto my first impressions.

The comics I picked up for now include Magneto 1, She Hulk 2, Avengers AI 10, Uncanny X-Men 18 and Velvet 4. I picked up a number of other things as well, most notably the entire Infinity event for $15 because well, I was going to read it eventually anyway, so might as well get it bundled for cheap. Links to full reviews will be added as posted. I can’t promise as many reviews as normal, but I’ll try.

Magneto 1 review

She Hulk 2 review

Avengers AI 10 was fun. The fight scenes in the diamond (digital world) continue to be the most creative fights in current Marvel titles. One storyline finishes in this issue while another kind of begins. There isn’t as much plot development as usual, but there are a number of teasers. This really is the most unique of the Avengers titles, and it’s worth giving a shot if you haven’t already.

Uncanny X-Men 18 was good. It focuses squarely on adult Cyclops as he interacts with various X-Men over the course of a few weeks. It deals with his guilt over killing Xavier and also has a brief conversation between himself and young Cyclops. They’re all well-written scenes, but you may be a bit lost if you haven’t been keeping up with the X-Men lately. The art is simple, but it works. How much you enjoy this issue depends on how much you like adult Cyclops. There’s nothing else to say really, so consider this a full review.

Velvet 4 was very good. Again, it’s Ed Brubaker writing a creator-owned espionage series. The title character is an aging agent whose been framed. Just read it.

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.

    Magneto was really good. Very dark stuff, and very good take on the character.

    She-Hulk was great. So much fun. Yay Hellcat!

    Avengers AI was very good. Lots of fun. I’m sad that this series is ending with #12, because it’s such a fun book. I feel sad for poor Gascheck.

    UXM was great. Solid character stuff with Scott. We actually get deeper into his state of mind than we’ve gotten since the series started. Very cool stuff. And his interactions with Jean and Young Scott were good.
