Comics of March 2, 2016

It’s the first week of March, and it feels like we’ve already had more snow this month than in all of February. It’s not very often when Canadians can say we’re getting cold air from Texas. That’s what global warming does though – it makes the weather unpredictable. Anyway, it’s time to talk about this week’s comics.

The comics I picked up this week include Black Widow 1, A-Force 3, Old Man Logan 3, Darth Vader 17, IXth Generation 8 and Batgirl 49. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

Black Widow 1 review

IXth Generation 8 review

Old Man Logan 3 review

A-Force 3 is good. After the action-filled first issue and the second issue that spent most of its time bringing the team together, A-Force 3 takes its time to build on the story and explore some of the conflicts within the team. There’s still some good action though, including an impressive showing of strength on She-Hulk’s part. If an all-female superhero team is the least bit interesting to you, give this series a chance.

Darth Vader 17 is awesome. It’s continuing a war on an Empire controlled planet against a mining rebellion. There’s some great Darth Vader action, backhanded politics and fantastic confrontations between people who should be allies. Darth Vader fans should be reading this series.

Batgirl 49 is great. In the last issue, a villain scrambled Batgirl’s mind to the point where it’s useless. Her friends dive into her mind with technology to patch everything up. Although it doesn’t dig into Barbara’s essential character as much as these stories usually do, there’s still some great reveals with the villain, about who he really is and what his motivations are. Batgirl regulars should enjoy this.

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.

    Black Widow is a great, action-filled debut.

    A-Force is a lot of fun. I love the relationships between all the characters. The sniping between Dazzler and Medusa is especially fun. Though I think my favourite moment may have been Singularity’s happy “Bye!” to Antimatter. She’s just so sweet and friendly and adorable.

    Old Man Logan is awesome. Kate Bishop is awesome. The art is gorgeous.
