I Love Comics (Blah, Blah, Blah….)
NEW COMICS 4 THIS WEEK (05/05/21)
*All comics will be rated on a scale from 1 to 10*
Amazing Spider-Man # 65– Okay, I can honestly say that this current arc, titled “King’s Ransom” has run its course, I did enjoy the stellar art by Federico Vicentini (Although Federico Sabbatini handling part of the art chores comes across as messy thanks in part to that) and the action flows with ease but at the end of it, it almost feels like the arc could drag on for a couple more issues but Marvel is devoting a giant-size special to bring this arc to an end so that’s a good thing. What I like the most is the Tombstone/Robbie Robertson plot thread put to bed (For now) and that Nick Spencer is hopefully gearing up for the next big factor that he’ll bring to ASM so that the readers can get ready to enjoy.
Heroes Reborn # 1– Whenever anyone heard the words “Heroes Reborn” they often tend to think of the infamous 1996 reboot of Captain America, Iron Man, The Avengers & The Fantastic Four done under the supervision of Jim Lee & Rob Liefeld it always leaves either a bad taste in their mouths or just remember those stories with disdain. But don’t worry, the team of Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness deliver what could be a timeless event that covers an alternate world in which The Avengers don’t exist, Wakanda is a myth and Captain America is still frozen in suspended animation. The other big surprise is The Squadron Supreme Of America keeping busy as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. This series is amazing from beginning to end, paying tribute to the Squadron Supreme all while giving them the spotlight after decades of being ignored and I like what Jason Aaron is bringing to this series, always enjoyable and keeping you surprised. Ed McGuinness’s art is always dynamic and keeps the story looking solid thanks to his attention to detail. Heroes Reborn may seem like another “alternate reality” story, but the flawless storytelling and fascinating characters help in making it a hit.
Nocterra # 3-This series continues to be extremely superb, mainly because of how good the action sequences are done (Tony Daniel is a miracle worker with his artwork); Seeing Valentina fend off monsters and shadows on the open road is still a wonderful thing to read because you’ll never know what comes next. Scott Snyder’s scripts continue to shine, giving Daniel some great visuals to draw and bring to life, so if you’re not reading Nocterra, now’s the chance to jump on one of the most thrilling titles to come out of Image Comics.
Star Wars: War Of The Bounty Hunters Alpha # 1– Boba Fett headlines a huge Star Wars event that kicks off with this special; The famed bounty hunter has Han Solo, who’s frozen in carbonite and ready to bring him to Tatooine to collect the bounty on Solo’s head, but I like how this special brings in the concept of how everyone that can go wrong could definitely happen no matter what circumstances surround Boba Fett. Steve McNiven’s artwork really shines to best in this special while bringing out the absolute best in Charles Soule’s script. A very solid story that will appease numerous Star Wars fans but could very well bring in some new fans because if you love “The Mandalorian” then you’ll love War Of The Bounty Hunters.
Well, that’s it for me. Thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/i-love-comics-blah-blah-blah-43/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
