It’s March 1st, which means that Logan is coming out this coming weekend. Well, it’s already out overseas, but … you know. I actually didn’t watch either of the other two Wolverine movies in theaters, but I’m going to make sure to see this one at least once. That’s not the only thing I’m looking forward to this weekend, but it’s the only one worth talking about on a comic blog. But now, it’s time to talk about today’s comic releases.
The comics I picked up include Monsters Unleashed 4, Hawkeye 4, Star Wars 29, Superman 18 and Batman 18. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted. It’s a bit of a small week, sure, but after the crazy weekend I had and the fact that inventory is taking place tomorrow at work, it’s nice to have a small week.
Monsters Unleashed 4 is fun. That’s basically what this entire event is, just dumb fun. There’s some good character stuff in this issue and some welcome cameos mixed in. Not sure what else to say about this event really. A bunch of space monsters attack Earth, and the Earth’s superheroes and monsters work together to hold them off. If that sounds good, you’ll probably enjoy Monsters Unleashed.
Superman 18 is good. It starts off with a fun celebration for Clark and Lois’s anniversary, but turns weird when a mystery guest shows up, and then things start disappearing. It’s hard to tell what’s going on at this point, save for who is likely responsible. This should be an interesting story arc though. This series is mainly a family drama about Superman, but with more than enough superhero action to still call this a superhero book. If that interests you, definitely check this series out.
I enjoyed the other Wolverine films, but very excited for Logan! I really liked Superman #18 as well, great issue, and excellent artwork as well. I’ve stopped reading Batman, I didn’t like the last Bane story, I Am Suicide, so decided to give I am Bane a miss – sounds like I’m not missing much. Have a great new comic book day!
Monsters Unleashed is still fun. Big dumb action, with bonus Awesome Lunella.
Hawkeye is great. Really fun. Julie Andrews team-up!
