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.
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.
