Comics of April 2, 2014

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a week without any comics numbered higher than 8. It’s also a small pull list of only six comics. Yesterday I started what will hopefully be the final major edit of the first book I’ll try to publish, so I’m glad for the small pull list.

The comics I picked up this week include Magneto 2, She Hulk 3, New Warriors 3, Black Widow 5, Pretty Deadly 5 and Red Sonja 8. Here are my first impressions; links to full reviews will be added as they’re posted.

Magneto 2 review

Pretty Deadly 5 review

She Hulk 3 review

New Warriors 3 was good. I was a bit lukewarm with the first two issues, but this one is an improvement. The various stories are starting to fit together, and the dialogue in the Scarlet Spider/Aracely/Nova scenes is always entertaining. It’s a Marvel team book that has no direct affiliation to either the Avengers or the X-Men, and it partly acts as a continuation to Chris Yost’s very entertaining Scarlet Spider series. Check it out if that interests you.

Black Widow 5 was good. Each issue seems to have a unique theme so far. This issue’s theme is about bad intel and how damaging it can be to an agent. Whoever Natasha is investigating, they seem to be several steps ahead through this entire issue. There’s also good action and solid story development. This is a great espionage series so far.

Red Sonja 8 was fun. Sonja is on the hunt for the six greatest artists in their field. The interactions between her and last issue’s master cook are hilarious as their personalities couldn’t be any more of a mismatch, yet they still mostly get along. The beast master on the other hand … there’s bad blood. This isn’t Gail Simone’s greatest Red Sonja issue, but it’s more than enjoyable enough to recommend.

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.
