It’s new comic day, and with it, a few of the DC Rebirth titles are beginning, while Darth Vader’s solo series begins its final story arc. Several of Civil War II’s tie-ins begin this week, although I didn’t pick up any of them. Last week I commented that I thought X-Men Apocalypse was alright, and I still think that, but I’m starting to come up with some major complaints about how they handled the story. At some point I really should write a detailed post on what I think of each movie in the series, especially since Days of Future Past and Deadpool are the only two that I don’t have any major complaints for. Anyway, let’s talk about comics.
The comics I picked up include All-New X-Men 10, Star Wars Poe Dameron 3, Darth Vader 21, DC Rebirth Wonder Woman 1, Vampirella 4 and Action Comics 957. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.
Star Wars Poe Dameron 3 is fun. Although I don’t think it’s as good as the first two issues, the finale to Black Squadron’s fight against the First Order agent is exciting and shows off their piloting skills. Poe also gets to use his charm a bit, and BB-8 makes some contributions to the solution. Fans of the new movie, or those interested in a Poe comic, should give this series a shot.
Wonder Woman Rebirth 1 is good. Not knowing that much about Wonder Woman I can’t say too much, but it does a great job at setting up where her rebirth title is going while leaving us with plenty of mystery.
Vampirella 4 is fun. I only just caught up with this series a few weeks ago and I’m not ready for a full review, but here’s a sum up for this story. Vampirella’s moved to a mansion in LA, where she’s being pursued by a demon possessed Hollywood producer who’s obsessed with giving monsters movie rolls. It’s an interesting concept that’s fun so far, and it looks like the next issue will be quite intense. If that story sounds like fun, then this is worth a read.
