Comic releases of November 9, 2016

It’s the second Wednesday of November, which means for me, Nanowrimo 2016 is well underway and I could use a proper day off to refresh my mind a bit. What better way to do that than to read this week’s batch of new comics? If you want to know more of my Nanowrimo 2016 thoughts, you can check them out here. Also I generally don’t like talking about politics online, so I don’t have much to say about yesterday’s election. All I will say is that I’m not surprised by the results. I don’t necessarily like them, but I’m not surprised.

The comics I picked up this week include Captain America: Steve Rogers 7, Star Wars: Poe Dameron 8, All-New X-Men 15, Supergirl 3, Wonder Woman 10 and Detective Comics 944. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

All-New X-Men 15 review

Supergirl 3 review

Star Wars: Poe Dameron 8 review

Captain America: Steve Rogers 7 is good. At this point the story is getting more and more complex as a political thriller of sorts, but there’s still a good focus on flashbacks showing Steve Rogers’s altered past. It makes this series hard to review in full without spoilers though. If you’re interested in a book about a sort-of brainwashed Captain America secretly working for Hydra, this is worth checking out.

Wonder Woman 10 is good. I’ve decided to mostly stick with the even numbered issues of Wonder Woman, which are a modern day retelling of her backstory. In this issue, Wonder Woman first shows off her superpowers to the main humans by defending bystanders from what is essentially a terrorist attack. This is an easy recommendation for those who want a modern retelling of Wonder Woman’s origin story, but a tough sell for anyone else.

Detective Comics 944 is intense in all the right ways. The opening battle with the victim syndicate is kind of brutal, and the late reveals for some of their members makes the villains at least somewhat sympathetic. This story arc is off to a great start, making it an easy recommendation for anyone interested in a Batman team book.

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.

    Captain Steve was pretty good. Red Skull is very clever and evil, and kinda charming about it all.

    ANXM was great. Just a really fun, well-made comic.
