I’m now on my last stretch of evening shifts before I move, which means there are only so many days left where there’s no guarantee I’ll make it home before midnight after work. As for preparations, apart from packing, all I have left to do is figuring out internet and getting a bit more furniture. Anyway, I only picked up two comics today – Captain America 10 and Supergirl 30. Here are my first impressions.
Captain America 10 is good. This issue doesn’t feel like as much is going on as some of the previous entries, but you’ve still got some good action, some great narration by Captain America, and a couple of surprises involving some of the cap’s former enemies. Great art too. The ending is exciting, promising a really big issue 11. If you’ve been enjoying this series so far, you’ll likely enjoy this too.
Supergirl 30 is intense. There’s a seemingly final confrontation between Supergirl and one of the people apparently behind Krypton’s destruction. There’s clearly a lot of anger on both sides of the fight, especially since Supergirl feels betrayed by someone who’s been helping her out since she left Earth, despite being connected to the villain she’s fighting. By the end of the fight, Supergirl also comes to a realization that she’s been feeding her anger too much. There’s also the issue ending cliffhanger teasing a small crossover with Superman. As much as I wasn’t a fan of how Bendis’s Superman run started off, I might as well see if it’s improved since. Anyway, despite how I’m not a fan of the general direction they’ve been taking the fate of Krypton lately, the Supergirl series has been doing what it can with it. It’s more than good enough to recommend this series to Supergirl fans, and say it’s worth checking out for Superman fans as well.
