This week has a number of books on sale but there were some smashing Marvel books on the market. Hawkeye is still one of the most popular but Uncanny X-Men is proving a decent sister book to All New. Only one book from Image this week and there is a real shortage from DC. There is one big book here which involves the death of a family member, I find it difficult to comment upon as I am still generally upset at the events of the book! Despite that it has been another solid week, I will get to a point where I will stop saying that!
The Flash #17
There was a reasonable ending to the Grodd/Rogues/Speedforce tale which updates the status quo. This book has been moving on through a single arc really since the inception of the new 52, which is a long time! I will be happy to see Keystone city return to normality. The book is always well drawn because Francis Manapul is a master and very innovative in his storytelling.
Batman Incorporated #8
I just don’t think I am ready to talk about this yet……I am sorry.
Guardians of the Galaxy #0.1
An solid set up issue to the new book. The story is not necessarily original but it is damn good and very well drawn.
If I start talking about this book I will never stop! Its so original and takes story telling to a new level. Just phenomenal. You can read my feelings on the cover as it is exceptional!
Uncanny X-Men #2
Bendis can write a monologue better than anyone. We finally get a chance to see where Scott and Emma are and it is an emotional reconciliation but not what you think. This is proving an excellent sister book to All New.
X-Men Legacy #6
Peep my review put up yesterday!
Young Avengers #2
Jamie McKelvie has lovely precise and simplistic art. It looks great with amazing characterisation and with Gillen at the helm, it is a nicely progressing plot. It is a shame that only half the cast are in this book.
This plot is moving nicely and the art has a tough challenge this week. It successfully shows how the current timeline is altering as the past changes, at the same time. It is pretty effective and unique!
Just pure style. Such a well drawn and coloured book. It looks incredible and the gumshoe detective work really comes into play. So much so that is uses the old classic trick – the dropped matchbook from a bar!
I have had a really enjoyable week because of Hawkeye, Black Beetle and the emergence of Legacy. The book which I cant talk about played an important part in the enjoyment of comics for me this week. I shall be able to speak soon…….
