So I picked up 5 comics this week, each released by a different company. That doesn’t happen very often for me. In any case, I might only write two reviews today instead of my usual three. Mainly because I’m hoping to continue my X-Men movie blogathon sometime later today. It’s been more than a month since my last post, and I’d like to finish it before the new Star Wars movie releases in 8 days.
The comics I picked up this week include Hawkeye 13, Witchblade 1, Red Sonja 11, Superman 36 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 77. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.
Hawkeye 13 is fun. The two Hawkeyes team up against one of the enemies from the Hawkeye: Generations one shot, who ends up giving Kate Bishop quite the tempting offer. I’m not sure what else to say about this one since it’s kind of intentionally confusing. In fact that’s part of the joke. This is worth picking up if you like either Hawkeye.
Red Sonja 11 is fun. It starts off a new story arc that seems to be wrapping up the Red Sonja in modern times story, which has been fun so far, but it’s probably good to end it before it starts to feel old. There’s a fair amount of action, interesting exposition and some strange fantasy shenanigans. Those who have been enjoying this series so far will likely enjoy this issue too.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 77 is great. After the opening fight in the previous issue that continues for a bit here, there’s a lot of tension building and plot development. The story is expanded on, with former adversaries teaming up against an apparent common enemy, the Ninja Turtles meeting up with their mutant triceratops friends, and the potential that they’ll end up fighting against their own master, Splinter. It’ll be very interesting to see where this story goes from here. I highly recommend this issue to Ninja Turtles fans.
