Avengers# 36– WOW!!! Black Panther vs Moon Knight! This is the type of story that will have any comic fun embracing the great storytelling and wonderful art (Javier Garron is a master of his craft); And you’ll be blown away by the ending (**NO SPOILERS**)So with the energy that Jason Aaron continues to infuse in this title, I truly feel like this is one of the most innovative titles that Marvel is putting out.
Batman/Superman Annual # 1– While I feel like the whole Bat-Mite and Mr. Mxyzpltk war on who would win in a battle between Batman and Superman has been done to death but I did find this story to be entertaining (Mostly Silly) but this annual is the type of story you would want to read to make the most of a boring afternoon; But then again, I do feel we all need comics like this to bring joy in our lives during a rather confusing time, and we would all be better for it.
Fantastic Four # 24– Iceman, a member fo The Fabtastic Four….for a brief time. Now I really loved this story as I felt like Dan Slott did such a wonderful job of not only paying homage to the Silver Age era but the iconic work that Stan Lee and Jack Kirby did during their time on FF and The X-Men; If you have the chance to read one comic, make it Fantastic Four # 24
Giant-Size X-Men: Tribute To Wein & Cockrum # 1– Even though many of us read the original book, this was a perfect tribute to the timeless work that Len Wein & Dave Cockrum brought to the table as these two creative and great men reintroduced The X-Men to a whole new generation of readers and thanks to the star-studded creators that help pay homage to Giant-Size X-Men, this is a special that should be in anyone’s collection.
Justice League Annual # 1– Now this is a great annual! The Justice League being trapped in The Hall of Justice as it’s been turned into a death trap as the defenses that they use to stop their enemies are turned on them is a fun read, due to the great script that Robert Venditti delivered as the visually stunning art by Aaron Lopresti and Matt Ryan. This is a great story and a perfect follow up to Venditti’s run, reminding DC that they should have kept him on the title longer, basically because we would have gotten such cool stories like this one.
Shang-Chi # 1– This issue is an amazing way to bring Shang-Chi back in his own title (And the fact that he has his own movie coming out soon as something to do with it); I really like how Gene Luen Yang’s script puts the spotlight in Shang-Chi’s supporting cast (And an old one in Leiko Wu); and the artwork by Duke Rian and Phillip Tan is very sharp and bring a rather unique look to the title and they make the perfect art team as their action sequences as well as the more quiet moments look wonderful in print. With this creative team on board, I can definitely see Shang-Chi as one of Marvel’s top-selling titles.
Well, that’s it for me, I’ll be back next week with a whole new batch of reviews. Thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/i-love-comics-blah-blah-blah-13/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/I-love-comics-logo-600x257.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/I-love-comics-logo-150x64.pngReviews
