I basically don’t have any free time today – seeing a place before work later, so let’s get started. Unlike normal, I won’t even have time to edit this, so I apologize if I don’t make things all that clear. Today, I picked up X-23 10 and Supergirl 28. Here are my first impressions.
X-23 10 is decent. It concludes the story arc with the cybernetic X-23 clones. There’s some good action, a bittersweet ending, and a good talk between Laura and Gabby in the end. On the downside, there are a couple cringy lines of dialogue. It’s worth checking out if you’re an X-23 fan, but so far I can’t say I’m enjoying this series nearly as much as All-New Wolverine.
Supergirl 28 is good. Supergirl completes her prison break-out in an action packed issue. Her interactions with Starfire’s brother/relative/I’m not exactly sure right now and I don’t have the time to research. Anyway, her interactions with him are entertaining, and they lead to a possible misunderstanding in the next issue. Meanwhile, there are strong hints as to who killed Krypton. This is a direction I’m still definitely not a fan of, as it drastically changes the point of Krypton’s destruction as part of Superman’s history, but writer Mark Andreyko is doing the best with what he’s been given. This is worth checking out for Supergirl fans, and for those interested in checking out Superman’s Kryptonian cousin.
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.

Same here, been super busy this week. Only got the new issue of Hawkman and Transformers #1 today. Will read them later, excited for the new Transformers series though. Keep meaning to try out the Supergirl sereis ok and worth a look.
I liked X-23. I thought it was a really bittersweet finale.
