I Love Comics (Blah, Blah, Blah….)
NEW COMICS 4 THIS WEEK (12/02/20)
*All comics will be rated on a scale from 1 to 10*
Batman # 104– This issue gives us a glimpse of The Ghost-Maker and his very complicated relationship with Batman so I like what I’m reading when it comes to that element and knowing that sooner than later, things between Batman and Ghost-Maker will truly explode and I also enjoyed seeing the whole bit with Clownhunter and Harley Quinn. But what was so cool about that plot thread is that it grabs your attention and will set up what happens for the next issue.
Daredevil # 25– Get ready to meet a new Daredevil (**NO SPOILERS**) who’s ready to defend Hell’s Kitchen while Matt Murdock is beginning his prison sentence; This series is just another example of how great Daredevil has been under the direction of Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto as they’re not afraid to take chances with the storytelling and how all of us are just waiting on pins and needles to see what becomes of Matt Murdock as well as how this new Daredevil will play out with the general audience.
Justice League: Endless Winter # 1– Ron Marz & Andy Lanning, two gentlemen who are no strangers to writing for DC, return for what could be one of DC’s biggest events. What I really liked about this special was the classic, old-school approach of storytelling that shows everyone that Marz and Lanning are masters of their craft as well as the brilliant artwork by Howard Porter, and I do believe that The Frost King does have promise as a major villain (He did give The League a run for their money); So with that, it’s awesome to see two comic legends such as Ron Marz and Andy Lanning showing everyone how to craft a crossover that will get people excited to see what happens next.
King In Black # 1– Donny Cates is well-known as one of the hottest writer in comics today (Thanks to his runs on Venom and Thor to name a few) but while this was a great kickoff to a memorable Venom event that will impact The Marvel Universe, I did feel like most sequences (The Symbiotes and the arrival of Knull) felt like the equivalent of watching a Michael Bay movie (Not a bad thing if there’s no explosions or shaky camera shots); But I did like how Cates kept the story moving and Ryan Stegman’s art was great as usual, making them an unstoppable team. And this series is doing a wonderful job on two parts- One in delivering a cool story that will add to the Venom mythos and Two, making Knull a villain that’s more threatening than Thanos.
Metal Men # 12– While I did enjoy elements from this twelve-issue series, I felt like this particular issue was just amazing in closing out this series and having the Metal Men face a whole new direction. From a surprise appearance from Sideways (Really wish that DC would give him his own title back) to The Metal Men ready to move on, I could only imagine what will come next for one of DC’s most unique group of heroes and this issue will likely be remembered by all Metal Men fans, which is rightfully so because it’s so good.
Well, that’s it for me. I’ll be back next week so thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.
