Comics of June 3, 2015

I’m not feeling that great this week, so there’s no guarantee I’ll post all my reviews today. I’ll try though. This week is mostly full of both first issues and final issues.

The comics I picked up this week include Little Marvel A vs. X 1, Years of Future Past 1, Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows 1, Secret Wars 3, Spider-Woman 8, Wolverines 20, All New X-Men 41 and Death Vigil 7. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

Wolverines 20 review

Secret Wars 3 review

Years of Future Past 1 review

Little Marvel A vs. X 1 is delightful. It’s the same style of humour you find in all of Scottie Young’s babies comics. This is full of great little moments and cameos. Basically if you like Scottie Young’s style of humour, this is a must buy.

Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows 1 is good. This takes place in a world where Peter Parker and Mary Jane are still married. Meanwhile, there’s a powerful villain who is removing all the superheroes from the picture. Peter decides to retire from being a superhero in order to take care of his daughter. It bothers me a little that Peter doesn’t seem to care when crime happens around him after the rest of the Superheroes are gone, but at least he’s doing it to make sure his daughter has a good childhood. If that interests you, check it out.

Spider-Woman 8 is fun. It concludes what is best described as an odd storyline involving people being blackmailed into committing crime in porcupine and kangaroo suits. Somehow it wraps up in a conclusion that’s both logical and feels nice. Spider-Woman is basically working as a private investigator in a somewhat comedic series, and if that interests you, check it out.

All New X-Men 41 is great. It deals with the Utopians in a quick yet satisfying manner. Karma manipulating the original X-men brings a quick yet intense fight scene, and the dialogue between SHIELD and the X-Men is entertaining. This is also the last issue of All-New X-Men, and will conclude with Uncanny X-Men 600. All New regulars should pick this up.

Death Vigil 7 is great. This isn’t as entertaining as previous issues since it mostly focuses on setting up the conclusion, but there’s a lot of fascinating stuff going on. Clara meeting up with some of her acquaintances from before she joined the Vigil was also nice. This is such a great series where the Death Vigil fight against necromancers and their demon monsters. If that interests you, check it out.

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.

    ANXM was good. but I would’ve liked to have seen more from the Utopians. The end of the issue was the best part, to me.

    Giant-Size Little Marvel was gold. Just pure gold.

    Years of Future Past was great. Excellent work from Bennett and Norton.

    Renew Your Vows was meh. Didn’t do much for me.

    Secret Wars was really good. A lot of excellent character stuff being done.

    Spider-Woman was great. The flashback to Cat’s past was really powerful, and kept her from being a villain, even when she was about to kill Spider-Woman. It helped cement her as still being a victim.

    Wolverines was meh. I’m annoyed that Destiny wasn’t brought back.
