Comics of May 8, 2019

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.

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.

    I enjoyed reading Supergirl #30 as well, been really enjoying this sereis since I started reading it a couple of issues ago. As the series crosses over with Superman next, I might give it a look too, although like you I haven’t been a fan of Bendis’ run. I got Hawkman #12 and Detective Comics #1003 as well this week. haven’t had a chance to read them yet, so going to enjoy them now on this nice sunny Sunday afternoon 🙂
