Marvel Entertainment launched a handful of new titles this past week, and I thought I’d peruse the debut issues for my latest batch of capsule reviews. Join me as I discuss the opening chapters of the latest incarnations of Black Widow, Invaders and Marvel Comics Presents.
While reading the comics I’ve examined in this batch of capsule reviews, I met a king with no memory, the perfect undercover assassin, a blind man with an eye for revenge and a tattoo artist who wants nothing more than to leave her complicated past behind her. Join me as I discuss the latest issues of Aquaman, Hardcore, Old Man Hawkeye and Pearl.
I’ve been rather lax in recent weeks when it came to writing about comics, and now that I’ve gotten back to it, I found I’ve got plenty to say about stories and art being told in my favorite medium. With this set of capsule reviews, I turn my attention to four recent first issues: Marvel Knights 20th, Outer Darkness, Suicide Squad: Black Files and Zorro: Swords of Hell.
From two costumed characters coming out of hiding to two teams of impossibly empowered champions teaming up to tackle cosmic crises, this handful of capsule reviews took me from city streets to the far side of the galaxy and then across dimensions. Check out my thoughts on the first issues of Dead Rabbit, Faith: Dreamside, Justice League Odyssey and Spider-Geddon.
From off-world reconnaissance to a blend of espionage and ink, from newly made galaxies to a vision of Victorian era England with hand-made monsters, this collection of capsule reviews will take you to unusual worlds to encounter impossible people. Join me as I delve into the most recent issues of Cemetery Beach, Cover, Fantastic Four and Newbury & Hobbes: The Undying.
With this batch of capsule reviews, I visit with a wide array of colorful characters: from social-media czars to visitors from space, from survivors of an apocalypse to pioneers of the craft and commerce of comics. See what I have to say about Lex Luthor/Porky Pig, Venom: First Host, The Walking Dead and War Bears.
Come with me as I explore elsewheres and elsewhens, worlds unlike our own populated by fantastic characters and unbelievable customs. From kickstarting a killing to pulling a heist in a galaxy far, far away. From punked-out heroes to robots with free will trying to earn a living. Continue and find out what I thought of this quartet of first issues: Crowded, Edge of Spider-Geddon, Star Wars: Beckett and Volition.
In Metropolis, criminals try to stay hidden from an all-seeing, all-hearing hero, while at the bottom of the ocean, a reanimated but foggy assassin undertakes a recovery mission that will haunt him. In New York, champions of justice gather with thieves and killers to discuss the fate of the universe, and in a different version of New York, comrades in arms gather for a reunion that turns into a rescue mission. I examine them all in this latest collection of capsule reviews.
