Comics of February 28, 2018

So after this week. I’m back on evenings at work. That means my first impressions posts will come out sooner, but I won’t have time to write any reviews. This week I’ll have the time and energy for one. After that review, I’ll be focusing on finishing a beta read for a fellow writer, and then I’ll edit one of my books while I start my Star Wars movie blogathon. That’s something I’m really looking forward to.

Anyway, the comics I picked up this week include All-New Wolverine 31, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 79, Detective Comics 975 and Action Comics 998. Only two more issues left before we hit the mega 1000th issue of Action Comics. My review will be linked below.

All-New Wolverine 31 review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 79 is intense. While the war between the humans and the mutant triceratopses rages on, the ninja turtles confront Splinter, whose tactics while leading the foot clan have slowly become more and more brutal. The end of this issue promises both an intense fight and a dramatic encounter in the next issue. Ninja Turtles fans, whether they normally read comics or not, should be reading this series.

Detective Comics 975 is great. After Batwoman’s execution of Clayface nearly tears the team apart, this issue is split between showing Kate dealing with the aftermath and the rest of Batman’s Bat family discussing what to do. It really delves into both Kate Kane’s and Bruce Wayne’s mindsets. It’s also nice to see Nightwing, Batgirl and Jason Todd joining in to share their o outside perspectives on the matter. It’s hard to say anything else without spoiling the goods, so I’ll leave it at that. This is a Batman team book, it’s been consistently great and you should be reading it.

Action Comics 998 is good. It concludes Superman’s trip through time with a good fight between him and Zod’s family on New Krypton. It also concludes Lois Lanes quest to rescue her general father from execution in rebel territory. I won’t say this issue is anything special, but it’s a decent read that puts Superman through a rough moment while also giving both him and Booster Gold a hand in saving his family upon his return. Although I prefer the Superman series, Action Comics is worth a look for Superman fans.

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.

    Really enjoyed Detective Comics 975, this storyline with Batwoman is really taking shape now, and I liked how the Bat-Family had their meeting about how to deal with the aftermath of what she did. This sereis has been so good. Shame to hear the news that Tynion’s run will be ending soon with issue #981, going to miss him on this book.

      Yeah, I only heard he was leaving from another blogger (haven’t been paying much attention to comic news lately). Hopefully they find a worthy replacement because this is the most consistently great team book of any kind I’ve read in years.

        Only read about it the other day as well. Its a shame, thought Tynion would have been on Detective for longer. He’s done fantastic work on the title. So many creative teams are changing atm at DC, but this is one that I wish had stayed together. Curious to find out who will take over, guess we’ll probably know soon enough.
