Comics of August 30, 2015

So it’s the last Wednesday of August, and a 5 Wednesday month at that. Normally that means there are very few releases this week, and yet I picked up 4 Marvel comics and a DC annual. Next week, there’s one Marvel comic for sure and one or two maybes. At least DC has a more normal release schedule.

Anyway, the comics I picked up this week include Generations: Hawkeye and Hawkeye, Jean Grey 6, X-Men Blue 10, Star Wars 35 and the Supergirl annual. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

Supergirl Annual review

X-Men Blue 10 review

Star Wars 35 review

Generations: Hawkeye is fun. Kate has found herself transported into some sort of sharp shooting tournament along with a much younger original Hawkeye. There’s some fun dialogue between them and some good action, but like most of the other Generations comics, there isn’t anything particularly special about this one. At this point it seems like the only Generations issue that’s very good is Generations: Wolverine. That’s not to say this isn’t worth checking out – if you’re enjoying the main Hawkeye series, you’ll likely enjoy this one as well.

Jean Grey 6 is good. With the help of Doctor Strange, Jean Grey somehow meets up with the spirit of adult Jean Grey, and she comes to some tough realizations. It’s great how the art style mimics different time periods in the X-Men’s history quite well. Apart from that, this issue isn’t as good as some of the previous entries, but it’s still worth picking up if you’re enjoying the Jean Grey series so far.

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.

    Generations: Hawkeye was great. Just a fun comic.

    Jean Grey is good. Interesting idea, with Adult Jean haunting Teen Jean.

    X-Men Blue is busy. Maybe too busy.
