Comics of July 19, 2017

There’s a strong possibility that my comic reviews will be late next week, which I’m sure I’ll mention again before next Wednesday. I’ve mentioned a couple times before that I’ve really gotten into competitive swimming since Rio. The Aquatic World Championships are on right now, and the sprint swimming, the part I’m mostly looking forward to, is on next week. The finals sessions begin at 11:30 am my time and I’ll likely be streaming it live as much as I can.

But enough about that. The comics I picked up this week include Star Wars: Poe Dameron 17, The Mighty Thor 21, Super Sons 6, I Hate Fairyland 14 and Superman 27. I thought of picking up Astonishing X-Men, but I’m kind of hesitant about starting a new comic series at the moment. I can’t really explain why. Anyway, here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

Star Wars Poe Dameron 17 review

Super Sons 6 is fun. The first half of the issue is Superboy and Robin working together. Robin is a jerk as usual, often to the point where he’s unreasonably harsh. Superboy does his best to be kind and reasonable. Afterward, Robin unceremoniously ditches Superboy for the Teen Titans, only for the team to get in over their heads. There isn’t anything unexpected in this comic, but it’s worth a read if you’re a fan of either Damien Wayne or Jon Kent.

I Hate Fairyland 14 is great as usual. I’m not sure how to describe this issue besides how Gertrude enters a maze in hopes to find some sort of redemption, and a bunch of different people propose to her. Each of these “suitors” ranges from creepy to the kind of being that physically can’t work with a human in a relationship. It’s bizarre, but Scottie Young makes it work with his brilliant comedy. There are times when I’m not even sure how to describe this series anymore, and this is one of those times. But seriously, check this fantasy comedy series out.

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 - 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.
