I have to admit, I thought the introduction of a female Thor was a cheap ploy at first to temporarily boost sales, but I've actually enjoyed this series, and I have been intrigued by the mystery surrounding her identity. Its looking like that mystery will be revealed by this summer's Secret Wars crossover, but in the meantime, the Odinson is out to discover who this new Thor actually is.
The big storyline that re-introduces the Legion of Super-Heroes to readers arrived in shops today. For a story that started off very rocky, it seems to have wrapped up nicely, especially for Legion fans. It's not perfect but what comics today are? Oh yeah. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
Bill and Ted are back! Since word got started that Alex Winter was working on Bill & Ted 3, fans that hold onto the first two Bill and Ted films fondly have been hoping to see them return. BOOM! Found a way to make that happen with a new Bill & Ted mini-series, which hasn't been done since Evan Dorkin's series from Marvel back in the 1990s, which many fans still hold in high regard. Does it live up to it? Read on.
I reviewed the first issue and was completely underwhelmed by it, especially since it seemed to be dropping us in the middle of a story rather than the beginning of a new one. This is the anticipated new direction with Spider-Woman's new costume, which is supposed to be more practical and realistic. Naturally, part of this review will be of that costume.
It seems right that Princess Leia's solo book should debut in March, the month of Women In Comics. It's sad that it's only meant to be a mini-series, but here's hoping that can change after this story runs its course, because I would love a series about Princess Leia. In too many extended universe stories she becomes a supporting character to Han or Luke.
If you're a die-hard fan of Hellboy, you've already picked up this book and the three issues before it. However, you might be like me and have just let Hellboy fall off your reading list. Well, you probably want to hear from someone that let it fall to the wayside only to pick up the latest issue, if for no reason than to read something that might be good.
If there was one comic this week that everyone was looking forward to, it was Spider-Gwen #1. With Spiderverse over, the breakout star of it was a Spider-Woman from a parallel universe named Gwen Stacy. Her debut in Edge of Spiderverse #2 remains one of my favorite comics of all time. Did the first issue of her new series hold up?
I'll be honest, that I don't recall anything about the first two volumes of Superman Earth One. The main reason I wanted to check it out was the write up this Earth got in the Multiversity Guidebook, and the readability of Batman Earth One and Teen Titans Earth One.
Spoiler Alert! There is absolutely no way to review this comic without spoiling certain aspects of its story. I'm also going to take the opportunity in this review to explore the facts about the DC Multiverse that this comic reveals. I won't talk too much about the actual story involving two Batmen fighting for their lives, but more about the worlds revealed.
We've not made it a habit here of reviewing entire series, but some things keep our attention to the point where we'll review past the first issue. One of those books is Lady Killer, about a contract killer in the early 1960s who hides her double life from her husband, family and neighbors.
The recent Character Analysis I did of the new Power Girl had me interested in seeing more about her, so when Teen Titans # 6 came across my desk, I had to give it a shot.
ALL-NEW X-MEN #35 BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS (W) MAHMUD ASRAR (A) Cover by SARA PICHELLI 32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99 Solicitation: • The ALL-NEW X-MEN continue their adventure in the Ultimate Universe! • Guest-starring Miles Morales and scores of other Ultimate characters! • Will either universe ever be the same again? Review: Given this week's announcement, we have to look at this book in light of the upcoming Secret Wars. However, this issue was scheduled to come out two months ago, so it's not necessarily meant to be viewed in that light. Nevertheless, we know that the two universes are going to collide, merge, and then destroy each other, resulting in Battleworld.
