Comics of December 6, 2017

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.

Superman 36 review

Witchblade 1 review

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.

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.

    Not had a chance to read Superman #36 yet, but been enjoying this arc so far. I enjoyed Astonishing X-Men #6 today, great surprise ending, and Star Trek Next Generation Mirror Mirror #5 was good as well. Happy new comic book day! 🙂

    Hawkeye’s always great. A lot of great lines and moments. Kate and Clint are so much fun together.
