Comics of March 22, 2017

It was only last week when the third of the three major Marvel events that seemed to run at the same time ended, and through Marvel’s June Solicitations, we’ve learned of yet another event/crossover coming up. Seriously Marvel, slow down. Also, I know I’m not the only one frustrated by this, but Old Man Logan is showing up on way too many X-Men teams. We get it, the Logan movie is popular, but he’s not the only character in that movie who’s been getting very positive reception. So far, All-New Wolverine isn’t on any team books while Old Man Logan has what, 3 or 4 in addition to his solo series? I’m capping my Old Man Logan books at one, and as of right now, it’s probably going to be X-Men: Gold. At least X-23 is getting an Edge of the Venomverse alternate though – that could be fun.

Anyway, the comics I picked up this week include Hulk 4, The Unworthy Thor 5, Batgirl 9, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 68, Detective Comics 953 and Action Comics 976. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

Red Sonja 3 review

This cover says everything you need to know about the comic’s general mood, plus it’s awesome.

There are a few reasons why I haven’t reviewed this series yet. One, the current volume of Red Sonja usually comes out on my comic heavy weeks, and there’s usually a lot of other stuff I’d like to review. Two, it took me a few issues to decide how I feel about this series. And three, I ended up finding the previous run kind of underwhelming after a good start, causing a bit more hesitation here. But we’re three issues into the current volume of Red Sonja – 4 if you include the 25 cent 0 issue that mostly acted as a preview. That’s enough to get a general idea of how I feel, so let’s do this.

Star Wars Poe Dameron 12 review

In the previous issue of Poe Dameron, Poe figured out who kept leaking information about his squad to the First Order. Of course he realized it a bit too late as he fell under attack by Agent Terex. Terex himself has gone rogue from The First Order, contacting a bunch of mercenary friends with his own plan to destroy the Resistance, against the wishes of the First Order. It’s an intense situation that left Poe stranded on a planet, his X-Wing heavily damaged.

The Mighty Thor 17 review

The Asgard/Shi’ar war started off much differently than I expected. It started off with a brief invasion of Asgard by the Shi’ar, and then Thor found herself teleported to a chamber, face to face with the gods of the Shi’ar. The second issue (last month’s), was mostly the beginning of a series of challenges between Thor and the Shi’ar deities, while Sif convinced Cul to retaliate with a brilliantly written speech. This is the issue where things really start to pick up.

Comics of March 15, 2017

It seems like at least once a month, I pick up a whole bunch of comics in one week. This is that week. Also, the three simultaneous Marvel events have finally come to a close with today’s Monsters Unleashed 5. Of the three of them (the other two being Civil War II and Inhumans vs. X-Men), Monsters Unleashed is the only one worth reading. It’s dumb fun, and I’d take that any day over the underwhelming Civil War II and the almost completely pointless Inhumans vs. X-Men.

The comics I picked up this week include Monsters Unleashed 5, Star Wars Poe Dameron 12, The Mighty Thor 17, Super Sons 2, Red Sonja 3, I Hate Fairyland 11, Superman 19 and Batman 19. Here are my first impressions, and links to full reviews will be added when they’re posted.

Action Comics 975 review

This is the second part of a 4-part crossover with Superman. In last week’s Superman 18, Jon Kent, along with Clark and Lois’s country home, disappeared in a strange blue flame. This clearly distraught the two of them. Their only clue was a short appearance by the mysterious Clark Kent that’s been hanging around Metropolis since DC Rebirth began.

All-New Wolverine 18 review

Kimura is X-23’s Sabretooth, except she’s worse in a number of ways. While Sabretooth has the same kinds of gifts that Wolverine does, even if he’s stronger and faster in exchange of a weaker healing factor, Kimura has unbreakable skin. She was meant to be Laura’s counter from the very beginning, and she loves to see Laura suffer. After not showing up for years, she and Laura finally have their major, and probably final confrontation.
