A Comic Book Day Post? (5-29-13)
Comic book day roundup?
Earth 2 Annual #1
Like Robinson’s Earth 2, not sure I’ll follow it when he leaves. This is no exception, BUT . . . DC . . . a comic that continues the same storyline from the monthly and ends on a cliffhanger isn’t an annual, it’s an excuse to charge me an extra dollar.
Justice League of America #4
I don’t think what appeared to happen happened. Interesting so far, but seriously, I bought the digital copy of this only seeing the thumbnail cover, and I may have passed on it had I seen the actual full sized book.
Avenging Spider-Man #21
I like Yost. Yost gets to do the fun stuff while Slott has to spend nine issues treading water before he really gets to tell his story.
Indestructible Hulk #8
I thought this book had gotten a little slow, but this one picked up, was a fun read, and started getting more into Banner’s new philosophy and why he’s doing what he’s doing.
Savage Wolverine #5
This series has been kind of over the top fun, but resolving it’s initial plot shows how thin a premise this book has. Wolvie doing fun stuff with guest stars is good. Trying to shoehorn a larger storyline is not so good.
Eddie Brock has a symbiont again! I don’t know why, but that balances some of the disturbances in the Spider books at the moment.
Wolverine and the X-Men #30
I don’t know why, but I just like this book. I am rarely disappointed in it. It’s not great, but it’s solid.
I’ve been digging Brian Wood’s Star Wars comic, so I picked this on up. Interesting starting premise and it’s enough to get me to come back for #2.
If someone had told me a couple years ago that I’d be reading more X-books than I had since the 90s and that one of my favorites would be a Brian Micheal Bendis book, I would have sworn they came from an alternate reality, where words mean different things.
Secondary Side Note
Wow, that was a lot of Hulk this week.
