Avengers # 45– This particular issue of Avengers take a look into the individual lives of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes told from the perspective of Robbie Reyes (Ghost Rider) and I thought it made for an interesting story, mainly because it’s a more quiet issue and it’s nice to see a done-in-one story that’s done in a way to give the readers a rest before the next big event. Seeing Blade get most of the spotlight is amazing and I thank Jason Aaron for making him so cool again and the seeing Blade in the Avengers definitely brings a great dynamic for this series and you’ll get a kick out of the confrontation between Blade and Dracula (**NO SPOILERS**); Avengers continues to be a sure-fire hit due to Jason Aaron’s writing and with “Heroes Reborn” on the horizon, it’s only going to get even more astonishing.
The Girls Of Dimension 13 # 1– Comics legends Graham Nolan and Bret Blevins come together for a story that features four women who get invited to live in a somewhat creepy apartment in New York City and soon discover that there’s a portal in the building that has twelve dimensions and that’s when the story kicks into high-gear; Nolan’s writing is very sharp and informative which is so good but never slows the pace of the story and Blevins is at the top of his game with his art, which makes me wonder why DC nor Marvel hasn’t given him any work which is a shame. This series is “Charmed” meets “Doctor Strange” and with the chemistry between all four of the women, it’s a title worth your time.
HAHA # 4– This issue opens up with a birthday entertainer named Gustav The Magnificent, who finds himself shrunk down inside a balloon then finds himself floating among numerous objects all while the kid whose birthday party he was going to perform at reconnects with his grandfather over a kite. This issue was a good read because it felt like an episode of “The Outer Limits” and will stand out as one of the most innovative issues of HAHA.
Justice League # 60– I like it when Brian Michael Bendis does his best work when it comes to team books (Such as his Avengers work) and with Justice League, this issue proves just that as we see Superman trying his best to convince the rest of the League to recruit Black Adam in their ranks (No way I’m calling him “Shazadam”) and seeing Naomi get some shine is a great thing because she’s such an underrated character so let’s hope Bendis gives her more time with the League; David Marquez continues to show what a master artist he is as all members of the League come alive with such vibrancy so with that, I hope he never leaves this titles and with the excitement that’s been shown within these pages, Justice League fans will forget about the bad outing that Bendis had during his Superman run.
Radiant Black # 3– I like how this issue juggled two plot threads when it came to Nathan writing his novel (And having trouble due to a bad case of writer’s block) and as Radiant Black, answering the tweet of a bystander who has car trouble so I really enjoyed how a hero is connected to social media which is cool yet hilarious but in the world, we live in, it’s totally acceptable. This series is truly becoming a massive hit for Image while also being a superhero story that’s lively in every sense.
Well, that’s it for me this week. Thanks for sticking around and I will see you next time.
